Its so-so box office take demonstrated that David Fincher's remake of the Swedish original really was unnecessary. But that doesn't alter the fact that it's as good as – and in some ways better – than Niels Arden Oplev's 2009 film. Oplev cast Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace in the leads, Fincher drops in Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara and adds a memorable soundtrack by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.
