Author Stieg Larsson's iconic character, Lisbeth Salander, is returning to the big screen again in "The Girl in the Spider's Web."
"The Crown" queen Claire Foy transformed for her role as Lisbeth, following in the footsteps of the three Swedish films starring Noomi Rapace; and then David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig.
This reboot is said to pick up with Lisbeth Salander (Foy) and Swedish journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason) years after the events of "Dragon Tattoo."
The first trailer was kept intentionally mysterious, director and co-writer Fede Alvarez told EW, because people are always complaining when the trailer gives away the whole movie. But people are always complaining in general, so you can rarely win.
Watch the trailer:Here's the poster:
Here are some photos: So far, fan reaction is mixed. Some are just confused. Some will watch Claire Foy in anything, or will follow the books anywhere. Others can't help but compare Foy to Rooney Mara in the David Fincher film:
So. The Girl in the Spider's Web. It looks good. But like.......is it supposed to be a sequel to the Rooney Mara Dragon Tattoo? Or its own complete thing. Still not sure about the whole "Let's skip the books actually written by the original author and recast the leads" thing.— Alex (@BarnOfDollars) June 7, 2018
So... three big thoughts on #TheGirlInTheSpidersWeb trailer:— Michael Reyes (@MrControversy83) June 7, 2018
A.) @fedalvar should have always had this series.
B.) Claire Foy already outshines Rooney Mara's Lizbeth.
C.) Holy shit, this series has a pulse again, and I actually want to see this. https://t.co/hSjBmxQbN9

What did I just watch?
I'm confused AF
I am already noping out "The Girl in the Spider's Web". I think Sony should have given David and Rooney another chance because the Lisbeth they created was fantastic. To me...Claire has the wrong face for Lisbeth.— 🌈The Fabulos Moxie🏳️🌈 (@artful_alli) June 7, 2018
Just watched the Girl in the Spider's Web trailer. As someone who've read the book, why the movie seems to have a different plot than the book had?— Waisaka Candra Jaya (@sakacrawford) June 7, 2018
Perhaps I should re-read the book again. Btw Claire Foy looks promising as the new Lisbeth Salander
Won't get my $$$ without Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig!— Bella Donna 🍷 (@DonnaMLanglais) June 7, 2018

"The Girl in the Spider's Web" / Noomi Rapace > Rooney Mara > Claire Foy as Lisbeth. Great actresses, but Noomi will always be Lisbeth.— Carlos Báez 🇵🇷 (@icaraci) June 7, 2018
The first trailer for The Girl in the Spider's Web.— PicturePlay (@picture_play) June 7, 2018
I know Claire Foy has tried her best to portray Lisbeth Salander. She's a terrific actress.
But, based on this trailer, she's lack of fragility that Rooney Mara added to her Lisbeth w/ a simple jaw gesture.
But will watch this pic.twitter.com/kVTPetdDpu
I'm gonna watch The Girl In The Spider's Web anyway but Rooney Mara was such a perfect Lisbeth 😭 - who's just one of my all time favourite characters. Claire Foy is a brilliant actress, though.— Maria João Soares (@maryjanesoares) June 7, 2018
I have good feelings for the girl in the spider's web plus claire foy is a good actress but some of you will hate it anyway because she's not rooney— luisa (@aubeyplaza) June 7, 2018
Still pissed about how Fincher/Mara/Craig got shafted but I'm still somewhat interested in the Girl in the Spider's Web and will treat it by its own merits.— Michael (@JokerCritic) June 6, 2018
