There’s only two weeks left until The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hits theaters on December 21 and now fans have been treated to an extended trailer.

The eight-minute video gives a closer look at Rooney Mara‘s gritty take on heroine Lisbeth Salander and further delves into the intense plot surrounding Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig). Rooney went into a complete physical transformation to become Lisbeth–compete with tattoos and piercing—and even stripped down for some risque photo shoots, but she was up for the challenge, telling Entertainment Weekly:

“There were certainly things I was scared to do, but I never thought I wasn’t up for the challenge … The ­motorcycle was the thing I ­really didn’t want to do. You know, you’re ­going to be raped, be naked… But as soon as he was like, ‘You’re going to have to ride a motorcycle,’ I was like, ‘Oh, really?”

It seems like fans of Stieg Larsson’s 2005 best-selling novel won’t be disappointed: the film is definitely living up to its title as “the feel-bad movie of Christmas!”
