Claire Foy Nearly Unrecognizable as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web Trailer

This is not the Claire Foy you’re used to seeing. The talented actress best known for playing the young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown is completely transformed in Sony Pictures’ The Girl in the Spider’s Web. From high tea and corsets to torture and leather, Foy plays the iconic computer hacker and avenging angel Lisbeth Salander. The Girl in the Spider’s Web was shot by Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez, an adaptation from David Lagercrantz’s book (itself a continuation of the massively popular series created by Stieg Larsson). The first trailer for The Girl in the Spider’s Web is as moody, dark and deliciously demented as you’d hope, with Foy looking absolutely at home playing the righteous, ruthless Salander.

The film picks up with Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason) a years after the events of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with the motorcycle riding vigilante and the tireless journo teaming up once again to take on sinister new villains.

Joining Foy and Gudnason are a stellar cast, including Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant, Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Synnøve Macody Lund, and Vicky Krieps.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web hits theaters on November 9th.
