While ticket-buying audiences still have to wait until Dec. 20 to see The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in theaters, those who were at last night’s premiere of the film at New York City’s legendary Ziegfeld Theatre got to watch the highly anticipated adaptation. (But, hey, look on the bright side, anxious PopWatchers, you’ll still get to see it one day earlier than you’d originally planned.)

Amongst those in attendance were director David Fincher, as well as many of the film’s stars including Daniel Craig, Robin Wright, Joely Richardson, Stellan Skarsgard, Yorick van Wageningen, and, of course, Rooney Mara (mere hours before the announcement of her first Golden Globe nomination for her performance as Lisbeth Salander) looking sleek and sexy in a black and lace peek-a-boo dress. Check out the red-carpet photos below, featuring other Dragon Tattoo premiere guests including Viola Davis, Michael Michele, Taraji P. Henson, Anthony Edwards, and supportive sister Kate Mara.
