Having made a name for herself playing Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s series The Crown, Golden Globe-winning actress Claire Foy is taking on a completely different role, starring in The Girl in the Spider’s Web as tormented vigilante Lisabeth Salander.
Adapted from Steig Larssons’ Millenium collection, the film picks up years after the events of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and, while much of the plot is being kept under wraps, we do see Salander take on a wife-beating CEO in the opening sequence of the trailer.
Later on, we hear her being referred to as “the righter of wrongs, the girl who hurts men, who hurt women”.
Co-stars include Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant, Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Synnøve Macody Lund, and Vicky Krieps. Release is set for 9 November.
