Daniel Craig has admitted that he was so shocked seeing violent scenes in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that it made his jaw drop.
The star - who recently stunned friends by secretly marrying Rachel Weisz - insists movie fans are in for a shock with the violence and adult material in the eagerly-awaited blockbuster.
‘It’s as adult as you can possibly make it,’ Craig warns.
The original Swedish adaptation of the best-selling novel featured incredibly graphic scenes, and it seems the Hollywood remake will follow suit.
‘This is adult drama. I grew up, as we fucking all did, watching The Godfather and that, movies that were made for adults.
‘And this is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore.’
He also insists that David Fincher, who is directing the movie adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s best selling thriller, is ‘not holding back’.
‘They’ve given him free rein,’ he said.
‘He recently showed me some scenes, and my hand was over my mouth, going, ‘Are you fucking serious?”
‘It’s not that he simply showed me footage that was horribly graphic - it was stuff that was happening, or had happened. And somehow you don’t see it. There’s more than one way to sense violence. Much more powerful ways than seeing it step-by-step.’ (via)
