Music Box Films is opening the third installment of the Swedish global hit Millennium trilogy (based on the Stieg Larssen novels), The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, stateside on October 29.
Directed by Daniel Alfredson (The Girl Who Played with Fire) from a screenplay written by Ulf Ryberg, the last film finds Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) helpless in intensive care recovering from a bullet in the head. She’s accused of three murders. And she is in critical danger not only from her wounds but from others who seek to do her harm. But Salender is never without resources–or far from a computer. She contacts ex-lover journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) to help her prove her innocence and wreak her revenge.
(I’ll see it soon. The trailer is below, along with my Venice Fest Rapace interview–when she was on the verge of signing her deal to star in the next Sherlock Holmes.)
