Watch Claire Foy in brand new trailer for The Girl in the Spider’s Web

Lisbeth Salander is back.

The brand new trailer for The Girl in the Spider’s Web has arrived, and it sees Claire Foy assume the role of Lisbeth Salander, a bisexual computer hacker who aims to “hurt men who hurt women”.

The British actress – who currently stars as Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix series The Crown – takes over from Rooney Mara, who earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011).

Noomi Rapace previously portrayed the character in the Swedish film adaptations of the Millennium series: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.

The upcoming adaptation starring Foy is based on the fourth novel in the Millenium series, which is the first instalment in the series to not be written by creator Steig Larsson, who passed away from a heart attack in 2004.

It’s not known whether the film will exist within the same universe as the characters portrayed by Mara and Daniel Craig (Mikael Blomkvist), or whether it’ll serve as a reboot. Craig has been replaced by Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason

Watch the action-packed trailer below.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web opens in cinemas on 9 November.
