Pulls no punches

When the teaser trailer arrived for David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, we announced it to be the coolest trailer of the year. Now the full three and a half minute version is exclusively here on MSN. And it's simply blown us away!

There's an enormous amount to take in here, particularly if you're one of the millions who read the book! Here are a few key moments that struck us.

0.28 - Journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) emerges from court having been sued for an article he wrote about industrialist Hans-Erik Wennerstrom.

0.38 - We see Rooney Mara's version of Lisbeth Salander speak for the first time. And yes, there was a definite chill in our spines!

1.02 - We meet the young Harriet Vanger - the victim of the murder at the centre of the plot.

1.27 - We see Lisbeth's lover Miriam Wu (Elodie Yung) for the first time.

1.32 - We're getting a sense of society turning against Lisbeth. We meet the scumbag counsellor Nils Bjurman.

1.50 - We meet Martin Vanger (Stellan Skarsgard) - the heir apparent to the industrial empire of Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer), who is the older man who is hiring Blomkvist.

2.15 - The meeting of Blomkvist and Salander. The coming together of two great investigative minds!

2.42 - "Please". A particularly good shot of Lisbeth, hinting at her talents with a computer.

3.10 - Flashes of the climactic car chase in which Lisbeth pursues, ahem. Well, we won't say who...

Wow! It just looks better and better. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will be with us on 26 December.
