If the first official trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo left you wanting more context — despite Trent Reznor and Karen O’s kick-ass cover of “Immigrant Song” — you’re finally in luck. The latest clip, which is just as moody as the first, maps out the dark story and introduces us to Lisbeth Salander (a transformed Rooney Mara), the “different in every way” hacker who becomes intertwined with a troubled journalist (Daniel Craig) hired by the aging patriarch of the Vanger dynasty (Christopher Plummer) to solve a puzzling 40-year-old murder.
