First Official Photos of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander

Submitted by on January 12, 2011 – 3:21 pm 5 Comments

W Magazine has revealed the first official photos of Rooney Mara as the titular character in David Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, due December 21. Mara’s transformation from the fresh-faced coed who broke up with Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network to the badass chain-smoking Lisbeth is quite startling. It’s interesting to see the differences between her incarnation and Noomi Rapace’s Lisbeth in the Swedish films. Whereas Rapace was straight-up tough, Mara looks more heroin-trashy and fragile, which is okay since Lisbeth is often underestimated by the bad guys, right up until the moment she kicks them in the testes. It’s a little disconcerting for me to see Mara baring her cleavage, though, because Lisbeth is so exploited by the men in her lives, she doesn’t need to play up her sexuality.

What do you think of these pictures?
