The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Follow-Up Gets Intense First Trailer

The first trailer for the The Girl in the Spider’s Web is here. It’s the latest movie to focus on iconic hacker Lisbeth Salander, with The Crown star Claire Foy taking over the role last played by Rooney Mara in David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Despite the change of actress, the movie looks like it will be a similarly dark tale of crime and revenge. Salander is described as “the girl who hurts men who hurt women,” and this first trailer gives us a brutal taste of what to expect when it arrives in November 9. Check it out above.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web is directed by Fede Álvarez, who previously helmed 2016’s horror hit Don’t Breathe. The film also stars Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Stephen Merchant (Logan), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), and Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049). It hits theaters on November 9.

The movie is based on the 2015 novel by David Lagercrantz, which was a continuation of the Millennium trilogy created by the late Stieg Larsson. Fincher’s 2011 adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was not a commercial success, and plans to adapt the next two books went no further, leading to this reboot. There was also a successful Swedish adaptation of Larsson’s trilogy, starring Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) as Salander.

Days Gone Release Date Revealed; Here’s Everything New We’ve Learned

Days Gone is looking more and more like fuel for your post-apocalyptic nightmares, and now we know when players will be able to get their hands on this PS4 exclusive. During its pre-E3 announcement video, PlayStation announced the game will release February 22, 2019. Get a look at the new release date trailer above.

Days Gone is set in an open world in the Pacific Northwest. The action-adventure/survival horror game puts you in the shoes of Deacon St. John, once an outlaw and now trying to survive in a devastated world. We don’t yet know what caused the apocalypse, but it’s resulted in some pretty scary occurrences. Freakers, zombie-like humans and animals that have become mindless and violent, travel the roads, and Deacon must evade and battle them. It looks like a challenge, as they tend to travel in fast-moving hordes, much like the zombies in World War Z.

While plot points are still mostly unknown, Sony is pitching Days Gone as a story-driven game, with a heavy emphasis on the “golden path” rather than on dozens of side quests like some other open-world games throw at you. In the release date trailer, we see new animal threats: mountain lions (or cougars) and infected ravens. There’s also an ambush event, as Marauders torch an old vehicle and roll it onto the highway trying to knock Deacon from his bike. We’re introduced to a new enemy human faction, called Rest In Peace, or R.I.P., who worship the Freakers and kill those who don’t.

The game was originally slated for release in 2018 but was pushed back to 2019 in March. It’s expected we could see more details about Days Gone revealed during Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday, June 11. You’ll be able to watch Sony’s press conference here, and for all the latest news and updates on Days Gone and other games, check out GameSpot’s full E3 coverage.

The Totality

The recent Dark Nights: Metal crossover ended with the Source Wall surrounding the DC Universe being breached and energy from the unknown realms beyond bursting through.
