AceShowbiz - Claire Foy trades her crown for a helmet in "The Girl in the Spider's Web", which has just been previewed with its first official trailer. The Golden Globe-winning actress, who is known for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix's series "The Crown", is unrecognizable as she transforms into Lisbeth Salander a.k.a. the title character in the new adaptation of Stieg Larsson's "Millennium" book series.
The hacker-turned-vigilante is seen going after an abusive husband in the trailer. "I'm a fan of yours - the CEO who beat up two prostitutes but then got acquitted in court yesterday," she tells him as he hangs upside down from the ceiling after she sneaks into his house. "I'm transferring 20 percent of your cash to these two girls. The rest I'm transferring to your wife."
Her reputation has spread as someone identifies her as a girl who hates men and helps women. She eludes police as she moves on to her next victim, but her past catches up with her when a woman she knew from her childhood suddenly shows up in front of her.
Here's the official synopsis of the movie, "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 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."
Sverrir Gudnason, Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant, Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Synnøve Macody Lund and Vicky Krieps also star in the movie, which is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. on November 9.
Rooney Mara played Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)", the American adaptation of the first book in the "Millennium" series. Noomi Rapace also played the character in the Swedish adaptation, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (2009).
