Remakes & Reboots: Upcoming Movies You've Seen Before

Release Date: December 21, 2011

Director: David Fincher (Se7en)Cast: Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright

Category: Reinterpretation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel.

Our take: David Fincher proved to be a master of hard-boiled Noir with films like Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac, and The Game - and now he's returning to the dark side with the American adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Read our Review).

With a script by multi-Oscar-winning writer Steven Zaillian (Gangs of New York, Schindler's List), a pulsing soundtrack by Oscar-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network), and a Golden Globe-nominated performance by actress Rooney Mara in the role of hacker Lisbeth Salander, it's safe to say that this version of Dragon Tattoo was a worthwhile new vision of Larsson's work.
