Did You Notice Claire Foy’s Accent in ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Trailer?

The first trailer for the newest installment in the late Stieg Larsson’s Dragon Tattoo franchise, The Girl in the Spider’s Web has dropped. The two minute and thirty second trailer revealed the style and tone for the newest addition, introducing Claire Foy as the cunning Lisbeth Salander.

Spider’s Web is the first film in the series to be based off a novel not written by Larsson, (the book was penned by David Lagercrantz,) and the first to star Claire Foy as Salander. The story follows Salander as she deals with her past while confronting a web of spies, cyber criminals, and corrupt government officials. 


Best known for her role as Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown, Claire Foy in Spider’s Web is a deep departure from her previous prim and proper appearances, but also showcased her talents in a multitude of accents including Russian, English, and Swedish.




In the trailer, Foy starts out strong with an accent that’s a mix of English and Swedish. She then pulls out all the stops when she throws cards at the captured abuser, showcasing her magnificent Russian accent. Throughout the trailer, she rotates between all three accents, giving us her full range of accented abilities. Which is like, not what I think the most memorable aspect of the trailer is meant to be, but that’s life eh?


The film is set to be released into theaters on November 9, 2018.
