It's Claire Foy like you've never seen her before.

The actress, best known for playing Queen Elizabeth II on the Netflix series The Crown, is unrecognizable as hacker and vigilante Lisbeth Salander in the crime thriller The Girl in the Spider's Web. A trailer for the film, the sequel to the 2011 movie The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, was released on Thursday.

In the action-packed The Girl in the Spider's Web, Lisbeth sports a Swedish accent and showcases a look that brings to mind a goth superhero, complete with a choppy, semi-buzzed black haircut, black leather, piercings and white makeup.
