Foy is swap­ping The Crown for a Glock! Tak­ing over for Rooney Mara, Foy takes on the role of hacker punk Lis­beth Sa­lan­der, who sets her sights on aveng­ing women abused by men — just not her own sis­ter. This re­boot is far more high-oc­tane than author Steig Lars­son’s hero­ine — she’s more like an in­vin­ci­ble, tat­tooed James Bond than a com­plex, wounded an­ti­hero. But edgy, ac­tion-packed se­quences and vig­i­lante jus­tice does make for a sat­is­fy­ing — if not lit­er­ar­ily au­then­tic — two hours, per­fect for the #MeToo era.
