Sony Pictures announced yesterday that director David Fincher's highly-anticipated new thriller, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will open in U.S. theaters one day earlier than originally planned, at 7:00 p.m. on December 20th, rather than on December 21st. Commenting on the move, Chairman Jeff Blake of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures said:
This is one of the busiest times of the year for moviegoing and we can’t wait to share this outstanding thriller with audiences all over the world. We feel that by opening for night-time shows on December 20th, fans of the book will be given the perfect opportunity to get a jump start on the release of an exceptional film.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was adapted from Swedish author Stieg Larsson's international bestseller of the same name by Steven Zaillian (American Gangster). The cast includes Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander, Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, Stellan Skarsgård as Martin Vanger, Robin Wright as Erika Berger, Embeth Davidtz as Annika Blomkvist and Christopher Plummer as Henrik Vanger.
