The Girl in the Spider's Web Trailer

"Someone always has to carry the pain, now it's your turn…" Sony has revealed the second trailer for the next film in David Fincher's English-language version of The Girl in the Dragon Tattoo series, continuing with the sequel The Girl in the Spider's Web. This time, Uruguayan filmmaker Fede Alvarez (of the Evil Dead remake) is directing and they're going in what seems to be a bit of a new direction - with a more action-heavy psychological thriller vibe. The Girl in the Spider's Web stars Claire Foy as the new Lisbeth, hacker extraordinaire, and Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason as her cohort Mikael Blomkvist. The full cast includes Sylvia Hoeks, Lakeith Stanfield, Stephen Merchant, Vicky Krieps, Cameron Britton, and Claes Bang from The Square. This trailer definitely has more action, including motorcycle chases and snipers, which seems a bit excessive for this crime thriller but so be it. Maybe this will turn out pretty good?

Here's the second two trailers (+ poster) for Fede Alvarez's The Girl in the Spider's Web, from YouTube:

The Girl in the Spider's Web

You can watch the first official trailer for The Girl in the Spider's Web here, to see the original teaser again.

Young computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt government officials. 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. The Girl in the Spider's Web is directed by Uruguayan filmmaker Fede Alvarez, director of the films Evil Dead and Don't Breathe previously, as well as a number of shorts. The screenplay is written by Fede Alvarez, Jay Basu, and Steven Knight. Adapted from the book of the same name written by David Lagercrantz, the sequel to Stieg Larsson's original Dragon Tattoo book series. Sony Pictures will release Fede Alvarez's The Girl in the Spider's Web in theaters everywhere starting on November 9th later this fall. Looking better? Who's going to watch this?

I have several concerns about this: First, none of the original people are involved with this (Fincher, Mara did not return). That's a red flag. Either the studio cheaped out on them, or the script wasn't up to par, or it was a scheduling issue. Secondly, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the original films. The only differences here is English is the primary language and it's been "adapted" for American audiences. This usually translates into dumbing it down, spelling everything out to make it obvious and cutting out everything that made it great to begin. I HATE that most studios think the audiences "aren't smart enough" to get nuanced direction. Honestly, go watch the original films with subtitles. You're probably be better served than this generic adaptation.

This is based however on the fourth book of the Millennium Series, nothing to do with the original three.

Ah! Good to know. I didn't realize there were more than 3 books in the series. Thanks for the clarification. I'm assuming you've read them? Does this look similar to the book?

Kind of. The book's story revolves around an autist-genius child who witnessed a murder and Lizbeth Salander has to protect from pro killers. I didn't see a child in the trailer, so we'll see. The hottie in red is Lizbeth's sister and she's an important part of the book, though. The book is not bad (written by another author). IMHO not as good as the first 3 but all original characters are described and evolved pretty well. Surely better than the latest book "The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye".

"...most studios think the audiences "aren't smart enough" to get nuanced direction." Most studios think that way because in North America they're right. Look at the garbage we flock to the theaters to see.

You're not wrong.

Agreed...the original films were worlds better and agreed about all that American audience stuff too.

This is more spectacular than the original. I have my doubts whether it is also better ...

Without that Reznor-Ross opening it won't be the same, but maybe the movie will be better than the first.

I usually try not to watch second trailers lately but I thought I'd give this a go. Did I not just watch the whole damn movie there? Fudging A people. I'll probably still see it but no more trailers for me, what's next? credits at the end of the trailer? 😀
