Mara -- aka Lisbeth Salander -- has some down time.
We’re less than three weeks away from the premiere of David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and with reviews embargoed until next week, we’ll take anything we can.

Which is why we’re loving this exclusive new footage from Entertainment Tonight, in which fans get to see star Rooney Mara get new tattoos, smoke, hold a gun, scream and everything else that has made her character, Lisbeth Salander, so memorable to millions of readers around the world.

In the film, Lisbeth teams with a journalist (Daniel Craig) to hunt down a serial killer who has been terrorizing a family for decades. It opens nationwide on Dec. 21.
