Spiders never get caught in their own web.

Lisbeth Salander, cult figure and title character of the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson, returns to the screen in The Girl in the Spider's Web, a first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller. Golden Globe Award winner Claire Foy plays the outcast vigilante defender who finds herself caught in a web of spies, cyber criminals and corrupt government officials, along with journalist Mikael Blomkvist.

The Girl in The Spider's Web is a sequel to David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the second installment in the American-produced Millennium film series.

The crime thriller is directed by Fede Alvarez and written by Steven Knight.
