The Girl In The Spider's Web Trailer Brings Lisbeth And Her Twin Together Again

The past never forgets. 

Sony Pictures Entertainment rolled out a brand-new look at director Fede Álvarez's crime thriller The Girl in the Spider's Web on Monday in the form of a second, even more violent and enigmatic trailer that features the badass Lisbeth Salander (played by Claire Foy) crossing paths with someone equally as hardcore: her twin sister, Camilla (Sylvia Hoeks).  

Foy, the actress best known for her work as Queen Elizabeth on Netflix's The Crown, looks entirely unlike herself in The Girl in the Spider's Web. Gone are her shoulder-sweeping brown locks and in is a cropped 'do painted, an almost exclusively black wardrobe, and piercings that line her ears and dot her nose. 

As with the first trailer for The Girl in the Spider's Web, this new clip highlights Lisbeth's striking look but places the most emphasis on her unique fighting style that's built on a desire to men who hurt women — which sometimes involves trapping their feet in a wire loop, stringing them up, tasing them, and gifting all their money to the people they've harmed, like their innocent wives. 

Sony already included that particular, harrowing moment in the first trailer, but the studio was sure to pack in a ton of unseen footage here to further entice audiences. 

Following the opening scene, the new Girl in the Spider's Web trailer sees Foy's Lisbeth dodging bullets, standing in front of a burning building, speeding her motorcycle across a frozen pond, and eventually returning to her childhood home as she and investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason) attempt to evade a ring of criminals and corrupt government officers. 

"Someone always has to carry the pain. Now it's your turn," Lisbeth says when she visits her estranged sibling.

Unfortunately, Camilla might not be the one to shoulder the trauma, as Lisbeth comes to understand that her sister is actually a criminal herself. 

"It's her," realizes Lisbeth. "She's been behind all of this."

Watch it all go down in the video above. 

By the looks of this new trailer, which offers far more insight into the film's plot than the first one did, it's evident that The Girl in the Spider's Web has a lot going for it. A solid cast top-lined by a Golden Globe-winning, multi-Emmy-nominated actress? Check. A talented director with a taste for horror films? Heck yeah. At least triple the amount of action seen in the David Fincher-directed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Yep, it's got it. And while some naysayers out there will insist that Noomi Rapace (who played Lisbeth in the Swedish films) and Rooney Mara (Lisbeth in Fincher's flick) are the only two women who should ever portray her, Foy looks to have what it takes to bring to life the character fans first fell for in author Stieg Larsson's Millennium novels. 

For her part, Foy once teased that the new take on Lisbeth (and The Girl in the Spider's Web as a whole) feels fresh but not totally removed from what fans of the book series are familiar with. 

"Our version of this film is obviously the fourth book, so you sort of have a little bit more leeway in the fact that it is a different story," Foy shared with Collider, referencing The Girl in the Spider's Web, written by David Lagercrantz after Larsson's death in 2004. "You're not telling the story which was, especially the first book, which was the story of the murder and the thriller element of it, which was trying to find out and the investigation and those things. We're not retelling that story."

The Girl in the Spider's Web, which also stars Death Note and Sorry to Bother You actor Lakeith Stanfield, will crawl into cinemas on November 9.
