Variety has the first production still from the just-wrapped “Close”, which shows Noomi Rapace in action as Sam, the world’s leading female bodyguard and counter-terrorism expert. WestEnd Films is handling worldwide sales and is at AFM this week with a “Close” promo. The film follows Rapace’s character as as she takes on a job looking after a rich heiress. After a violent kidnap attempt, the pair have to go on the run to save their lives. The cast includes Sophie NĂ©lisse (“The Book Thief”), Eoin Macken (“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”) and Indira Varma (“Game of Thrones”). Rupert Whitaker produces and co-wrote the script with Vicky Jewson and Jason Newmark. Jewson is the director. Braden Aftergood (“Wind River”), Sarah Radclyffe (“Les MisĂ©rables”) and Dennis Davidson (“Bitter Harvest”) executive produce. The high resolution version of the production still can be found in the photo gallery.

Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” has been released in the United States and most European countries by now on home video and demand, and I have been able to make screencaptures from the site. There are very few, and each of them is a spoiler, so if you haven’t read or heard or watched anything about Elizabeth Shaw’s fate, this post isn’t for you. I found “Alien: Covenant” rather disappointing as it lacked the great chemistry that has made the “Prometheus” crew so special – but if you kill off Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green and Idris Elba, this is what you get. The same thing can be said about Noomi, who appears not even as herself, but as a wax figure of what’s left of Shaw, and in the form of pictures, although you’ll miss both if you blink for too long. So basically every frame she has appeared in “Alien: Covenant” is in the photo gallery. There were a few more blink-and-you-miss-it footage in the extended scenes, as well as the prologue, which was released as part of the promotional material for the film’s theatrical release – a pity this has been the most extensive Noomi material of it all. Nevertheless, to think positive, with “Alien: Covenant”, Noomi’s most recent project has been covered as well, so now we can all look forward to December’s “Bright” on Netflix.

With today’s theatrical and demand release of “Unlocked” in the United States, a bunch of new press junket interviews with Noomi has been released. Also, for the French theatrical release of “What Happened to Monday”, interviews from the French press junket are online as well. Check out the new interviews, alongside a couple new interviews from the British press junket for “Unlocked” and a b-roll for “Monday”, in the video archive. Many thanks to Marika for the heads-up.

“Unlocked” has been released on Blu-Ray in the United Kingdom on Monday and I was thrilled to finally watch it. I was expecting something bad after the film has been in the shelf for over 3 years. Luckily, the film’s quality was not the reason for its delay – at least not in my book. It’s a good entertaining thriller, nothing new to say the least, but still very well done and a good ride. I was looking forward to an ensemble piece, given the talents of John Malkovich, Toni Collette, Michael Douglas and Orlando Bloom involved, but it really is a one-woman show with Noomi Rapace commanding the screen – and every single scene. It’s another powerful leading role. The only real disappointment about the British Blu-Ray is that it includes absolutely no special features, zero. It would have been nice to go behind the scenes and learn more about the making of the film. Make sure to grab your copy or catch it in an American theater for its US release starting tomorrow. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery – be advised that they contain heavy spoilers.

Sophie NĂ©lisse, Eoin Macken and Game Of Thrones‘ Indira Varma have been added to the cast of Close, the action thriller that stars Noomi Rapace. Vicky Jewson co-wrote and is directing the pic, which kicked off principal photography today and will shoot in the UK and Morocco. Loosely based on the experiences of Jacqui Davis, one of the world’s leading female bodyguards, the pic centers on Sam (Rapace) a close protection officer used to battlefield conditions who is hired to protect Zoe (NĂ©lisse), a rebellious heiress to a billion-dollar company. When a violent kidnapping attempt forces them to go on the run, the women form an unlikely bond, and with the help of Sam’s ex-partner Conall (Macken) work together to clear their names and uncover their enemies. Varma plays Zoe’s stepmother. Rupert Whitaker co-wrote the script with Jewson and Jason Newmark and is producing.
