First Trailer For ‘The Girl In The Spider’s Web’ Sells A Horror Movie

Sony Pictures have released the first trailer for ‘The Girl In the Spider’s Web‘, the latest cinematic iteration of author Steig Larson‘s Millennium saga. The reboot sees Claire Foy taking over the iconic role of Lisbeth Salander, with ‘Evil Dead‘ (3013) and ‘Don’t Breathe‘ helmer Fede Alvarez stepping into the director’s chair this time around. Although plot details are being kept under pretty tight wraps a this point, the film follows Salander and Blomkvist years after the events of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘ as the two re-unite to uncover a new mystery from their own past.

The last time that we saw the character brought to the big screen was with David Fincher‘s 2011 big-budget remake of Larson’s original ‘Dragon Tattoo’ novel, but this trailer seems to be trying to differentiate itself from that film as much as possible, which is probably a good thing.

The first trailer for Sony's The Girl in the Spider's Web has finally dropped and it features a vengeful Lisbeth Salander played by The Crown's Claire Foy. Salander has become a cult hero over the course of the last few years, originating in Stieg Larsson's book series. However, The Girl in the Spider's Web is not a part of the original Millennium Book Trilogy, which was first adapted in Sweden. This version of Lisbeth Salander has seen and been through a lot more than any other version of the character to have been shown on the big screen and still falls in line with the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo franchise.

The Girl in the Spider's Web's version of Lisbeth Salander focuses on the vengeance, and the trailer is action packed. As evidenced from the books and past movies, she is an incredible computer hacker and

Claire Foy Delivers Vengeance in ‘Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Trailer
A tattooed Claire Foy is delivering vengeance as Lisbeth Salander in the first trailer for Sony’s “The Girl in the Spider’s Web.”

The trailer showed Foy — best known for portraying Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s “The Crown” — as she uses an intricate trap to capture a villainous husband, and then coldly telling him as he hangs upside down that he will turn over his assets to his abused wife.

“I’m a fan of yours — the CEO who beat up two prostitutes, but then got acquitted in court yesterday,” she says. “I’m transferring 20% of your cash to these two girls, the rest I’m transferring to your wife.”

She then tells the wife, who’s also been beaten up, “He won’t hurt you again.”

The studio decided two years ago to replace Rooney Mara with Foy as the precocious Swedish computer hacker for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” sequel,

The First Trailer For The Girl In The Spider's Web Is Awesome

I'll admit, when I first heard Hollywood would be moving on with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo franchise without Rooney Mara in tow, I was ready to hate all over it. David Fincher's take on the tale was awesome for me, and I thought it was a huge mistake when Hollywood ended up dropping it. Now that I've seen the first trailer for The Girl In The Spider's Web, however, I'm feeling a bit differently! Claire Foy makes for an intense Lisbeth Salander, and in the little time we get to see her on screen, I think she outshines Mara's by far.
