Fans of Daniel Craig may be delighted to hear the film trailers for the latest action movies he stars in are now online – but fans of 007 will have to wait if it is that particular hero they’re holding out for.
A month or so back, the Internet got its first look at a new clip of Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo when a leaked version wound up on a host of film news websites websites across the world. Sony and Columbia Pictures were quick to get an official version out, along with a pretty controversial poster featuring the James Bond actor and his eponymous lead Rooney Mara.
Of course, it’s not the first version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to have been released. In just 2009, a Swedish version of the story was put out featuring Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace in the respective roles.
However, this new U.S. version is directed by the one and only David Fincher, the man behind Oscar-winning flicks like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network, making it a real awards contender. Don’t rush out to buy cinema tickets just yet though, as the new version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo won’t be in UK cinemas until December 26th.
That said, Craig has another movie due in theatres soon that promises action, thrills and much more. The latest film trailer for Cowboys & Aliens hit the web recently and gave people a good look at some of the fantastic effects set pieces they can expect. Directed by Jon Favreau, who has credits that include Zathura and both Iron Man movies, the story focuses on a small Arizona town in the late 1800s that’s invaded by a malevolent force from outer space.
Due across the UK from August 19th, it not only has a great director and lead, but can also boast a supporting performance from veteran hero Harrison Ford, who can be seen trading in his trademark Indiana Jones bullwhip for a six-shooter in the trailer.
At the moment though, it’s going to be a little while before we see Daniel Craig back in his tuxedo for a James Bond movie. The latest film news has been that speculation is growing around who will play the latest Bond girl in the secret agent’s 23rd cinematic adventure, but so far there has been very little for 007 fans to chew on. Hopefully, it will be enough for people to know Sony Pictures officially confirmed a release date of October 26th 2012 for the feature on its Twitter account earlier in the month – but watch this space for more!
