Noomi Rapace looked absolutely stunning at yesterday’s 30th Annual American Cinematheque Awards Gala, honoring director Ridley Scott. A roll call of friends and collaborators, including Rapace, Josh Hartnett, Sigourney Weaver, Katherine Waterston, Ben Kingsley and Kristen Wiig took the stage throughout the evening to offer personal anecdotes. Matt Damon presented Scott with the award. As he often does in these circumstances, Scott looked back to his art school upbringing when it was his turn to respond to the outpouring of love and respect. â€śI was almost dyslexic to anything but that which was visual,â€ť Scott said, recalling how poor a student he was until he took on graphic design as a chosen subject at Londonâ€™s Royal College of Art. â€śI had this intuition about film,â€ť he said. â€śI didnâ€™t know how in the hell I was going to get there, but I figured maybe set design would bring me that much closer.â€ť Over 100 pictures from the ceremony have been added to the photo gallery.
Public appearances have been a rare treat for Noomi’s fans these past months. Yesterday, Noomi was spotted at the BFI Southbank Cinema on the South Bank in London for the premiere of “Anthropoid”. Based on the true story of Operation Anthropoid, the historical drama is set to hit UK theatres this week. Pictures from the premiere have been added to the photo gallery.
A couple of new production stills from the upcoming “Rupture” have been added to the photo gallery, while some previously added pictures have been replaced with better quality. Many thanks to Marika for helping me out with these. Enjoy.
Yesterday, Noomi Rapace attended the Serpentine Gallery’s Annual Summer Party in London. A couple of pictures have been added to the photo gallery.
Screencaptures from two of Noomi’s lesser known apprarances have been added – both directed by Aitor Throup. The first in Kasabian’s 2014 music video for “Eez-Eh”, in which Noomi is stunningly filmed in black and white (and with a pelican, in case you’ve wondered). The second project is Throup’s rather obscure but fascinating short “Nowness: A Portrait of Noomi Rapace”, based on his New Object Research concept. Screencaptures from the making of have been added as well.
