The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo officially opens tomorrow in the theaters and for those of you preparing to check out the movie, we'd like to introduce you to the behind the scenes work that the Light Iron Digital team in Los Angeles did to bring the exquisitely shot super-high-resolution movie to the screen.

Re-teaming with director David Fincher after their successful collaboration on The Social Network, Michael Cioni and the team at Light Iron built 5K workflows for real-time, full resolution post for Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The running time of the 4K print is 2:38, creating a data size larger than six 2K features combined.

Cioni and Light Iron co-founder Ian Vertovec spoke to Creative COW's Debra Kaufman about how working that way in real-time is even possible, about working with David Fincher, and about what frame sizes larger than 4K mean for all of us.
