Something I wanted to add to Noomi Rapace Online since its opening was a special on the three Millennium films – and finally, it has been created. Head over for the special for all essential info on the films, the characters and its author, Stieg Larsson. Additionally, I made a tribute video for the three films to bring you into the mood to re-watch the films :-) Enjoy!

Big congratulations to Noomi for winning the 2011 Empire Award as Best Actress for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. She was nominated alongside Emma Watson (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One), Olivia Williams (The Ghost), Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) and this year’s Oscar winner Natalie Portman (The Black Swan). Regarding Rapace, Empire wrote, “Lisbeth Salander – the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – is already a major literary heroine, and the unusual-looking, intense Rapace (not as tiny as the girl in the books, but otherwise ideal) is liable to become an international star with this role (which she’s reprised in the two already-made follow-ups). The best Euro action heroine since Anne Parillaud’s Nikita and the most influential female thriller lead since Jodie Foster’s Clarice Starling, Lisbeth is an interesting mix of credibly screwed-up victim and resourceful superheroine – making good use of a stun-gun, a dildo, a tattoo needle and a golf club in kicking against the pricks.” Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the gallery.

Additionally, four video clips from the Empire Awards have been added to the archive, including Noomi’s speech and interviews from the red carpet and the press room. Enjoy!

Article courtesy the Hollywood Reporter: A Stieg Larsson confidant shares what happens in the unpublished manuscript thought to be the fourth novel in the ‘Millennium’ series. A close friend of deceased crime writer Stieg Larsson has revealed details of the unpublished manuscript thought to be the fourth book in the global best-selling Millennium series. Larsson confidant Kurdo Baksi told Swedish daily paper the Expressen that Camilla, the estranged twin sister of Millennium’s goth hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander, plays a major role in the fourth book. Camilla was seen only briefly in the second Millennium novel, The Girl Who Played With Fire.

Baksi is quoted in Expressen as saying the fourth novel is set on the remote Banks Island in Canada and the further deepens the relationship between Salander and investigative journalist Mikael Blomqvist. Baksi, whose book My friend Stieg Larsson was a best-seller last year, added that before he died Larsson completed a detailed introduction and a finale to the fourth book. Larsson died suddenly in 2004, before the three Millennium books were published. But it’s been widely reported that he had plans for a series of five or six books. There is huge commercial interest in continuing the Millennium franchise. The novels were a phenomenal global success, as were the Swedish films based on them, which launched the career of actress who played Salander, Noomi Rapace. The Hollywood adaptation of the books – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, directed by David Fincher and starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig – hits theaters Dec. 21.

Larsson’s long-time partner Eva Gabrielsson has said she has a large part of the manuscript for the fourth novel on a computer in her possession. But Gabrielsson, who was not formally married to Larsson, is in a bitter fight with Larsson’s family over Millennium royalties and has so far refused to make the unfinished manuscript public. In Stieg and I, her biography of her life with Larsson, Gabrielsson gave the fourth book the working title God’s revenge. She has been quoted as saying she could finish the novel on Larsson’s behalf. So far, however, Larsson’s publishers – in Sweden and internationally – have said there are no plans to publish a fourth novel in the series.

Here are the very first pictures of Noomi on the red carpet at the 2011 British Academy Awards. The Best Actress category is still to be announced, but some good news so far: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” won Best Film not in the English Language! Check back later for more information and pictures. Edit: The Best Actress Award went to Natalie Portman for “Black Swan”.

Over 1.300 DVD captures from the extended Millennium mini-series have been added to the gallery. Since the trilogy was originally planned and shot for television, the mini-series features a lot more scenes than the theatrical versions. Each film is expanded to two episodes, making the series a 6 episodes delight of 9 hours. I’m working on a special section to highlight the extended scenes and notable differences between the film and tv versions, so stay tuned.

A couple of production stills from the first two Millenium parts as well as Beyond have been added. Also, most of the Babycall production stills have been replaced in higher resolution.
