Claire Foy sure is a long way from Buckingham Palace.

We finally got our first glimpse of The Crown alum in her new role as Lisbeth Salander, the gothic computer hacker who, as heard in the trailer, is "the girl who hurts men who hurt women." Basically, our girl Lis is president of the "Men Are Trash" club and she is pissed

The film, out Nov. 9, is a followup to 2011's Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, which starred an impeccable Rooney Mara in the titular role. While Foy nails the Swedish accent in the trailer, the part of Lisbeth Salander was made for Mara.

Both films are based on Stieg Larsson's Millennium book series, though the novel The Girl in the Spider's Web was actually written by David Lagercrantz following Larsson's death. 

And, while the last Millenium film was directed by David Fincher, this adaptation is helmed by Fede Álvarez (Don't Breathe). Likewise, Sverrir Gudnason will take over the part of journalist Mikael Blomkvist from Daniel Craig.

Girl With a Dragon Tattoo looks less like a detective thriller than its predecessor. Instead, it leans heavily on superhero movie vigilante tropes, complete with a mask-clad Salander. 

 Are you excited to watch Foy as Lis Salander?
