Dragon Tattoo sequel “The Girl in The Spider’s Web” is getting a Zavvi exclusive 4K/Blu-ray Steelbook release
David Fincher’s US adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was superb, and it’s a real shame that neither he nor stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig are returning for the follow-up.
The Girl In The Spider’s Web is actually based on the fourth book in the series, written by David Lagercrantz following the death of the original trilogy’s author Stieg Larsson.
It seems an odd choice to skip the other two books, but Claire Foy certainly looks the part, and with Fede Alvarez (the Evil Dead remake, Don’t Breathe) behind the camera, and Peaky Blinders’ Steven Knight lending a hand on the script, we should at least get a slick, exciting thriller.
Zavvi will be bringing us the UK steelbook as an exclusive release, which will include 4K and Blu-ray discs.
The release date and final art are still TBC, and the price (at the time of writing £44.99) should also be much cheaper when this launches.
Pre-orders will be live from around 12 midday UK time on Wednesday November 21st, so ignore the ‘sold out’ until then.
A new Dragon Tattoo story comes to the screen starring Claire Foy (“The Crown”) as Lisbeth Salander, the fierce, outcast vigilante defender from the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson, in The Girl in the Spider’s Web. A first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller, the film is directed by Fede Alvarez, the director of 2016’s breakout thriller Don’t Breathe; the screenplay adaptation is by Jay Basu & Fede Alvarez and Steven Knight.
