Early next month, we will be getting the latest entry in the Millennium series franchise — the first since David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo flopped into theaters back in 2011. In spite of the movie’s overall quality, it didn’t do much to get audiences to theaters, leaving the franchise dormant for a solid seven years.

Now, with The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Claire Foy is taking on the role of Lisbeth Salander from Rooney Mara. It’ll be the first time we’ve seen the character realized since that last movie, and the studio is leaning heavily into that for this new featurette. If you haven’t read the books, there’s a lot you’ve missed between that first film and this new story, which adapts the fourth novel in the franchise, and with that is a rebooted character.

Whereas the first three stories see her actively fighting against something, in this one she is more lost, as Claire Foy states.

Below is the official synopsis to The Girl in the Spider’s Web:

“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.”

The Girl in the Spider’s Web hits theaters on November 9, 2018.
