Here at Out of Dave’s Head we’re big fans of Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander in both the original trilogy of Millennium books and the accompanying trilogy of films, starring Noomi Rapace. The David Fincher version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, with Rooney Mara in the role, looks lovely but feels completely redundant, however.
Now comes the trailer for a third attempt at Salander, this time based on the book by David Lagercrantz, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, with the character played by Claire Foy. See what you think?
It certainly feels authentic – with Salender now a vigilante hurting men who hurt women – and Foy looks and sounds great in the part. The film is directed by Fede Álvarez (the unfortunate remake of Evil Dead and the slightly more fun Don’t Breathe), which doesn’t exactly thrill me, but I’m a hopeful type by nature.
Personally, I’m ready for another take on the character. Are you up for another spin around the block with the damaged but heroic Swede? The Girl In The Spider’s Web opens on November 9th.
