The Girl in the Spider’s Web Trailer Sets Up the Villain

The full trailer for The Girl in the Spider’s Web trailer has arrived and it appears that Lisbeth is in for some issues this time around.

Although the trailer gives away who the villain is, we won’t say it until below the video. You’ve been warned.

I’ve only had the chance to read the first book in the series, so I wasn’t aware that eventually a twin sister was introduced for Lisbeth. As this is based on the first book written by someone other than series creator Stieg Larsson, I’m not even positive if that was the original plan, but I’m all for it.

Claire Foy (The Crown) looks virtually unrecognizable as the Lisbeth, and we had to do a double take. Hopefully this one does better financially than The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so we can get an actual series out of it this time.

Lisbeth Salander, the cult figure and title character of the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson, will return to the screen in The Girl in the Spider’s Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story, a first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller. Golden Globe winner Claire Foy, the star of “The Crown,” will play the outcast vigilante defender under the direction of Fede Alvarez, the director of 2016’s breakout thriller Don’t Breathe; the screenplay adaptation is by Steven Knight and Fede Alvarez & Jay Basu.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web will hit theaters on Nov. 9.
