Sony Pictures has released the first (and very different) domestic and international trailers for “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” its adaptation of the fourth novel in the series that began with the worldwide sensation “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.
The new film serves as something of a standalone and this marks the first in the best-selling series to be produced into an English-language film in its initial adaptation. Fede Alvarez (“Don’t Breathe”) helms the film which sees “The Crown” star Claire Foy take on the role of hacker Lisbeth Salander.
The cast also includes Sverrir Gudnason as Mikael Blomkvist, Sylvia Hoeks as Camilla, Lakeith Stanfield as Ed Needham, and Stephen Merchant as Frans Balder. Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Synnove Macody Lund, and Vicky Krieps co-star.
“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” will be released on October 19th.
