The first trailer for the The Girl in the Spider’s Web is here. It’s the latest movie to focus on iconic hacker Lisbeth Salander, with The Crown star Claire Foy taking over the role last played by Rooney Mara in David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Despite the change of actress, the movie looks like it will be a similarly dark tale of crime and revenge. Salander is described as “the girl who hurts men who hurt women,” and this first trailer gives us a brutal taste of what to expect when it arrives in November 9. Check it out below.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web is directed by Fede Álvarez, who previously helmed 2016’s horror hit Don’t Breathe. The film also stars Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Stephen Merchant (Logan), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), and Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049). It hits theaters on November 9.
The movie is based on the 2015 novel by David Lagercrantz, which was a continuation of the Millennium trilogy created by the late Stieg Larsson. Fincher’s 2011 adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was not a commercial success, and plans to adapt the next two books went no further, leading to this reboot. There was also a successful Swedish adaptation of Larsson’s trilogy, starring Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) as Salander.
