THE GIRL WITH THE RACY POSTER

Rooney Mars with co-star Daniel Craig
The U.S. movie version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is not being released until December 21 but already the marketing campaign for the thriller is causing controversy.

One of the posters shows 26-year-old  Rooney Mara, who plays cyber-punk hacker Lisbeth Salander, with an exposed pierced right nipple which some  fans feel does not fit with Salander's feminism and body-image issues. 
  Others call the poster exploitative and feel uneasy about seeing the actress exposed in that way. "If she were my client I would say, 'I don't see how this is selling your movie,'" one prominent publicist told Entertainment Weekly. "It's not cool and sexy---it's sordid."

  2. I LIKE it. Craig needs to move his arm though.
