'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo:' Best Title Sequence Ever?

It's full of disturbing imagery, powered by amazing graphics and it's driven by an insidious, pounding soundtrack, but we're not talking about the latest music video from Tool — we're talking about the groundbreaking opening credits from David Fincher's acclaimed big screen adaptation of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

And now you can see what the whole world is talking about, as the whole mind-blowing sequence has just been posted online.

Created by the animations and visual effects team at Blur Studios — headed by one Tim Miller — the title sequence takes elements not only from "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" but also the sequels written by author Steig Larsson and spins them together into a terrifically dark fantasy montage. And since it's backed by the same great cover of the Led Zeppelin hit "Immigrant Song" by Trent Reznor and Karen O that turned the first trailer for the movie into a viral sensation, you know it's going to be a white-knuckle ride right from the first note.
