The photo features star Daniel Craig half-hidden behind his co-star Rooney Mara, who is naked from the waist up and looking directly into the camera. The pair star as Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander in this upcoming mystery, and the photo is said to be black and white, beautiful, and very artistic.
