Golden Globe victor 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.

All in all, it's a promising first trailer that has us intrigued to see more.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo's US -bred sequel has been in the works for over seven years, long after the first film's lukewarm box-office success, which was a surprise, considering that almost every avid USA reader inhaled Steig Larsson's Millenium trilogy.

The almost 3-minute teaser video presents the iconic character created by writer Stieg Larsson, and followed up by David Lagercrantz in the fourth book in the Millennium series, in a dark world where a man cheats on his wife and likes to beat up sex workers.

MI part of multistate outbreak of Salmonella
The CDC said Walmart and Kroger stores in the affected states had removed pre-cut melon linked to the outbreak from their shelves. To date, 60 people infected with the outbreak strain have been reported in five states, including 32 cases in MI .

As fans of the series will know, Rooney Mara played Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and now Claire is taking on the role.

It must be hard to play a character viewers have seen before. We completely forget that it's Foy on the screen; she's all Lisbeth Salander, right down to the voice.

Spider's Web was the first story in the series not written by the late Stieg Larsson; author David Lagercrantz took over after Larsson passed away in 2004, a year before The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was published. The brutal opening scene will definitely get your attention. Stephen Merchant (The Office) plays a computer engineer while Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta) is an NSA agent searching for Salander.
