The first trailer for the “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” dropped on Thursday morning and it is nothing short of action-packed.

In the just over two-and-a-half minute clip, we’re introduced to “The Crown” star Claire Foy’s take on tattooed goth hacker Lisbeth Salander, who sets the stage by immediately taking justice on a male creep on her own terms.

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is the latest film to be adapted from the book series written by Stieg Larsson and is first to hit the big screen since David Fincher’s 2011 version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” which starred Rooney Mara as Salander and Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist.

Noomi Rapace also previously played Salander in the Swedish adaptation of Larsson’s Millennium series.

In addition to “The Crown” actress, “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” stars Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant, Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Synnøve Macody Lund and Vicky Krieps.

“Spider’s Web” is based on the novel of the same name by David Lagercrantz, who continued Lisbeth’s adventures after the 2004 death of Larsson.

Fede Alvarez is directing; the screenplay adaptation was written by Steven Knight and Fede Alvarez & Jay Basu.

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” will be released in theaters on Nov. 9 via Sony/MGM.
