Sony Pictures’ new feature film adaptation of The Girl in the Spider’s Web just released a new trailer along with a red and white poster for the dramatic thriller. The nearly three minute trailer finds Lisbeth Salander (Claire Foy) tasked with a top secret mission. She discovers she’s been set up and tracks the source back to her sister.
This latest film entry in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo franchise focuses on Foy’s character, Lisbeth, who was played by Rooney Mara in the American version of the Dragon Tattoo book, and by Noomi Rapace in the original Swedish film.

David Fincher directed the 2011 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Fede Alvarez directed The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Alvarez’s credits include 2013’s Evil Dead remake and the critically acclaimed 2016 horror film, Don’t Breathe. The book was written by David Lagercrantz, and Alvarez adapted the screenplay with Steven Knight and Jay Basu.
Scott Rudin, Ole Søndberg, Søren Stærmose, Berna Levin, Amy Pascal, Elizabeth Cantillon, and Eli Bush produced the thriller. Robert J. Dohrmann, Line Winther Skyum Funch, Johannes Jensen, Anni Faurbye Fernandez, and David Fincher served as executive producers.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web Book’s Plot:
“A genius hacker who has always been an outsider. A journalist with a penchant for danger. She is Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo. He is Mikael Blomkvist, crusading editor of Millennium. One night, Blomkvist receives a call from a source who claims to have been given information vital to the United States by a young female hacker.
Blomkvist, always on the lookout for a story, reaches out to Salander for help. She, as usual, has plans of her own. Together they are drawn into a ruthless underworld of spies, cybercriminals, and government operatives—some willing to kill to protect their secrets.”
