On Thursday, the cast and crew of David Ayer’s upcoming Netflix spectacle “Bright” made a stop at this year’s Comic-Con to premiere the official trailer. Netflix brought out Suicide Squad director David Ayer on stage along with cast Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez and more to talk about the high concept fantasy–set in our reality–film. Ayer went on to discuss that he has plans for a sequel and his inspiration for this kind of movie. He went on to give praised to Netflix for allowing him to make such a fantastical film that looks like something not really seen before. There are elements of humor in the film but doesn’t come off as too zany or slapstick like. What makes this film so unique is the setting in Los Angeles and the creatures that live there like Orcs, Fairies, and Elves living among humans. It also gives off a political tone with the discussion of race and the abuse of magic (power) that really gives it that realistic push that Ayer tends to do.



A day before the Comic-Con premiere, they also joined Conan O’Brien on his show – which is held in San Diego during the Comic-Con. Pictures from all events – the panel, press conference and Conan apppearance – have been added to the photo gallery. Additionally, videos have been added as well, alongside a first production still and trailer screencaptures of Noomi. Many many thanks to Claudia and Maria for their submissions. “Bright” will debut on Netflix on December 22, 2017.

A nice interview with Noomi Rapace by The Wall Street Journal to promote the August-release of “What Happened to Monday?” in the United States: Before filming started, actress Noomi Rapace worried that her next role would be a “suicide mission.” In “What Happened to Monday?”, a Netflix film that debuts in mid-August, Ms. Rapace stars as a set of septuplets in hiding from a government that brutally enforces a one-child policy due to overpopulation. Each of the seven sisters has a very different personality, and for scenes in which they interact, Ms. Rapace filmed alongside a body double or in front of a green screen with tennis balls marking the places of her siblings. Ms. Rapace, 37, is best known for playing Lisbeth Salander, the antisocial computer-hacker heroine in the original Swedish-language “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” film series (2009), based on Stieg Larsson’s books. After that performance, she quickly learned to speak English and went on to star in Hollywood films, including “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” (2011) and “Prometheus” (2012). In “What Happened to Monday?”, set in a dystopian future, the sisters are named for days of the week and can only leave their house on that day. Outside their apartment, they must all pretend to be the same person. After the sister named Monday disappears, the others try to figure out what happened to her. The complete interview can be read over here.

Noomi is featured in the current Malibu Magazine with a fantastic interview, by Felicity Martin, and a great new photoshoot. The last chapter remains the most interesting one: It’s not just the world of acting that Rapace is conquering. She’s just designed a clothing collection for a brand (“It’s very street, very hip-hop.”) She’s also launching a perfume later this year (“I’m doing a lot of stuff for fun,” she says). What I really want to know, however, is about the rumors she’s playing Amy Winehouse in an upcoming biopic. “Maybe … We’ll see. I’m involved in it, and I’m working on it, but all the components need to be right.” She smiles, explaining how, when they asked her to play Winehouse, she initially refused to read the script. “I have a strong connection to Amy. She was really present, her music, in the most critical moments of my life.” Rapace’s quest for perfection is particularly crucial on this project. “I can’t compromise on that one,” she urges. “The script needs to be amazing. It needs to be 100 percent. She is too important to me; my respect and love for her is just too important. It needs to be really brave and really honest and raw—and from my heart.” Rapace pours herself into all aspects of her career and life, from roles as villains or identical septuplets to perfume and key ring gifts for friends. There is no halfway. All considered, if Rapace eventually does tackle the role of Amy Winehouse, you can bet she’ll do it justice. The complete article can be read here.

Some very sad news today, as the family of Michael Nyqvist has confirmed the actor’s passing at age 56. Mr. Nyqvist landed his breakthrough role at age 39, playing Rolf, an abusive alcoholic husband in the 2000 film “Together.” The Swedish movie about members of a leftist commune in suburban Stockholm in the 1970s led to his first nomination for a Guldbagge, the annual cinema awards in Sweden. From there, Mr. Nyqvist was cast in leading roles on television shows and in films, including as Mikael Blomkvist, the fervent investigative reporter, in the original Swedish adaptation of the book series “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” He also received bigger parts in blockbuster Hollywood movies, playing a deranged Swedish-born Russian nuclear strategist in the 2011 movie “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” What better way to celebrate this wonderful actor’s career by re-watching the “Millennium” trilogy anytime soon. Here are some of Noomi’s and Michael’s moments together from the promotional tours of the “Dragon Tattoo” films.
