Trailer: Fincher's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'

The official trailer for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has now arrived, following the red-band trailer that leaked a few days ago. The new trailer can be viewed below:

Both this film and the 2009 Swedish film of the same name are based on Stieg Larsson's novel. The synopsis is as follows:

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

I think Fincher movies always have such great trailers, don't you? The musical choices, albeit odd, always work great. Just like the trailer for The Social Network used a choir cover of Radiohead's "Creep" this trailer uses Trent Reznor and Karen O's rendition of the mighty Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" which of course is quite appropriate given the Scandinavian setting of the book and movies. What are your thoughts?
