The film was shot in cold, wintery Sweden, which had quite an impact on Craig: "There's a scene at the beginning of the movie where I first go to Hedestad and it's one of the coldest days we had, and I wasn't dressed appropriately, so I froze my butt off."

Also starring Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgard, Robin Wright and Joely Richardson, 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is the first film in a planned big-screen trilogy based on Larsson's bestselling Millennium trilogy, which was already filmed in Sweden in the author's native language.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is coming to theaters December 21.
