The red-band trailer for 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' was released today and it's generating a lot of buzz for David Fincher. And, rightfully so.

The film, based on the best selling novel by the late Stieg Larsson is about a girl (Harriet Vanger) who disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by a powerful family (The Vanger clan). Her body was never found, and her uncle was convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He thereby employed a disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. Rooney Mara (who was in "Social Network") plays the role of Salander.

David Fincher gets back to his roots of directing dark, hard-hitting thrillers by taking on 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' project. In recent years he has made great films in 'Benjamin Button' and 'Social Network', but they are departures from his earlier dark films like "Se7en", "Fight Club", "The Game", and "Zodiac."

And, if the trailer is any inclination, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will be one badass film. There is no dialogue in the teaser - just short quick clips throughout the film, as the the cover (by Trent Reznor) of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" is played in the background.

 Check out the redband trailer below.
