David Fincher's American adaptation of Stieg Larsson's hit novel will open December 21.

While the release of the highly anticipated American version of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is still months away, new photos are starting to give fans a look at the dark thriller.

Based on the hit novel by Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stars Daniel Craig (Cowboys & Aliens) as journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who is enlisted by a wealthy family to solve the mystery of a young girl’s disappearance. Rooney Mara (The Social Network) stars as Lisbeth Salander, a mysterious hacker who assists Blomkvist in his increasingly dangerous hunt to find the truth.

Last week, fans got a first look at many of the secondary characters when the website for the film launched with stylized photos of all of the characters, along with bios. Images for Stellan Skarsgård's character, Martin Vanger, the brother of the missing woman, and Robin Wright, who plays Blomkvist's boss and sometimes-lover, are included in the collection.
