LISBETH SALANDER (Claire Foy) may not need the world, but the world needs Lisbeth Salander…
The look. That tattoo. Those skills. That determination.
The fierce vigilante star of Stieg Larsson’s massively popular Millennium trilogy of dark, twisty, vengeance-driven cyber-thrillers, and four acclaimed film adaptations, independent hacker Lisbeth Salander is everything we need in a modern hero: smart, resourceful, driven by demons but not defined by them, and possessing a me-against-the-universe attitude that has been more than enough to take down abusive men, hidden killers, and anyone foolish enough to go up against her.
Now, in the blistering thriller The Girl in the Spider’s Web, fans will experience an all-new Lisbeth Salander adventure that finds this misfit outsider – 21st century fiction’s most original and complicated warrior for justice – in the middle of her most dangerous and personally revealing crusade yet.
Dark and violent web of intrigue
When a scientist employs her to steal his work from the Americans, Lisbeth finds herself pulled into a dark and violent web of intrigue after mysterious forces take the data, torch her apartment, and leave her for dead.
With her old friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, acting as an unlikely ally, Lisbeth must go on a perilous journey to find her attackers, protect the scientist’s young son, and get back what was taken from her. As the net tightens, she is drawn ever deeper back into the shadows of her own mysterious past.
The bad men of the world take on Lisbeth Salander at their own peril
But for those who need a new kind of hero – the voiceless, the vulnerable – she’s that righteous, volatile rebel we may need now more than ever.
The Girl In The Spider’s Web is a first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller by David Lagercrantz, which continues the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson. Emmy and Golden Globe winner Claire Foy, star of The Crown, plays outcast vigilante defender Lisbeth Salander under the direction of rising filmmaking talent Fede Alvarez, the director of 2016’s breakout thriller Don’t Breathe.
The Girl In The Spider’s Web opens on Friday 09 November across all cinemas.
