London, UK. 23.02.12 - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - the gripping, hard-edged thriller based on the first of Stieg Larsson's suspenseful and spell-binding "Millennium" trilogy - arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on April 23. This highly anticipated motion picture from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brings together an all-star ensemble cast led by Daniel Craig (James Bond franchise), Rooney Mara (The Social Network), Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright (1994, Best Actress, Forrest Gump), Stellan Skarsgård (Thor), Golden Globe winner Christopher Plummer (2012, Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role, Beginners) and Joely Richardson (TV's "Nip/Tuck").
Earning $200 million in box office worldwide, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has received five Academy Award nominations including Actress in a Leading Role (Rooney Mara), Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. The film adaptation was directed by David Fincher with screenplay by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian (2002, Writing (Original), Gangs of New York) who executive produced along with Mikael Wallen and Anni Faurbye Fernandez (both Headhunters). Original music is by Academy Award winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (2011, Best Original Score, The Social Network). The two-disc Blu-ray includes nearly four hours of special features.
Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Craig) accepts an invitation to surreptitiously investigate a forty year old unsolved murder on behalf of the victim's uncle, Swedish industrialist Henrik Vanger (Plummer). Meanwhile, tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander (Mara), hired to investigate Blomkvist, discovers the truth behind the conspiracy that led to his fall from grace. Thrown together by fate, the unlikely duo uncovers a secret history of murder and sexual abuse festering beneath the veneer of Sweden's industrial past, all the while drawing close to a quiet evil waiting to engulf them both.
