Reviews: OVERLORD / THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB: A NEW DRAGON TATTOO STORY

J Bryant and AngieBee discuss OVERLORD starring Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Iain De Caestecker, and Bokeem Woodbine; and THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB: A NEW DRAGON TATTOO STORY starring Claire Foy, Lakeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, and Sverrir Gudnason.

OVERLORD

With only hours until D-Day, a team of American paratroopers drop into Nazi-occupied France to carry out a mission that’s crucial to the invasion’s success. Tasked with destroying a radio transmitter atop a fortified church, the desperate soldiers join forces with a young French villager to penetrate the walls and take down the tower. But, in a mysterious Nazi lab beneath the church, the outnumbered G.I.s come face-to-face with enemies unlike any the world has ever seen.

OVERLORD featured more practical effects rather than the standard CGI effects. This was done to get a better reaction from the actors involved in the scenes where something gruesome would happen. (IMDB)

THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB: A NEW DRAGON TATTOO STORY

Lisbeth Salander, the cult figure and title character of the acclaimed 'Millennium' book series created by Stieg Larsson, returns to the big screen in THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB, a first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller.

When a plan to steal and destroy a computer program that can access codes for nuclear weapons worldwide goes wrong, vigilante computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Claire Foy) and journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason) find themselves caught in a web of spies, cybercriminals, and corrupt government officials.

Before Claire Foy was attached to the film, Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson, originally considered for the title role in the previous film, were once again in talks to play Lisbeth Salander. Sony also considered Felicity Jones and Alicia Vikander for the titular role. (IMDB)
