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 Nélisse, 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 (Nélisse), 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. Braden Aftergood, Sarah Radclyffe, Janette Day and Dennis Davidson are executive producers. Davis is a consultant on the film. WestEnd Films is selling worldwide.

After two years of waiting, our question of what has happened to Monday has finally been answered, as Tommy Wirkola’s scifi action thriller is available for streaming on Netflix since Friday. There’s a lot to say about the movie, good things and bad things, but one thing is for sure – “Monday” has been worth the wait. Noomi delivers a true tour de force, being able to indeed pull of seven performances with seven different characters. The great special effects do her a great service by blending all sisters together effortlessly. After a couple of minutes you don’t think about how they have done and just enjoy the performances. Without spoiling the story, the film is much more violent than expected, unnecessarily vulgar throughout, loses its pace after the first half and picks it up right when it has to. The first thing I thought when the ending credits started rolling, is that I have to watch it again to see how good it really works and how it connects all the dots. So “Monday” is a definite recommendation. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery, and their amount is huge because Noomi is in almost every single frame of the film, and please be advised that the captures also feature massive spoilers – so if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to watch it on Netflix to enjoy it fully. Have you seen it yet? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Popsugar has posted a lengthy article for today’s Netflix premiere of “What Happened to Monday?”, including an interview with Noomi Rapace: The Swedish actress stars in the streaming network’s dystopian action flick, out Aug. 18, as identical septuplets named after each day of the week. All seven sisters have grown up living in hiding thanks to the government’s law restricting families to one child only due to overpopulation, so their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) allows them out of the house only on the day corresponding with their name. They’re able to maintain one public identity through adulthood, until a government agency led by the steely Glenn Close picks up on the scam. Monday doesn’t return home after her day out, and soon enough her sisters savagely work their way through a long line of agents (and end up getting picked off in gory fashion themselves) in an effort to save her.

[Tommy Wirkola] called me up and said, ‘So, Noomi, I have this project, I want you to read it. It’s actually seven brothers, but if you want to want to do it with me, because I can only imagine you doing this, I want to change it into women, to seven sisters.’ Then he sent me the script and I read it, and I called the next day saying, ‘OK. Absolutely, yes.’ But I was terrified,” she recalls. “It was like, ‘If this doesn’t work, it’s all on me.’ I stepped into this knowing that I had to do something I’ve never done before and no one’s done before, because it’s not seven clones. It’s not a person with multiple personalities. It’s actually seven different people.

Signing on to play a character who flings herself out of second story windows and chops off fingers is not an unusual choice for Rapace, who has steadily built her career around projects that allow the slight, 5’4″ star to fully embrace her physicality after a childhood spent practicing martial arts. “I don’t really go and chase [those roles],” Rapace tells me during a recent phone call. “I’m very drawn to physical parts because I like doing all of that and it’s always a fun ride, but it always needs to be coming out of a character and be character driven. When it’s just pure action, that doesn’t really do much for me. I like an action movie with real drama.” The complete article can be read here.
