Articles and interviews to promote the August 18 release of “What Happened to Monday?” are coming in. In the first, Noomi Rapace talks to Looper: Shooting took nearly five months, with Rapace called to set almost every day. Most of the time, she was acting by herself, using a green screen with tennis balls or crosses and listening to her own pre-recorded dialogue in an earpiece. Sometimes, they used doubles, with Rapace showing them exactly how she had acted out the scene when she had been the other character. “Let’s say I’m doing a scene with Saturday and I’m Monday, and then I have to kind of plan what I’m gonna do as Saturday before I’ve done it and then I have to show the double girl how to move, and how to sit, and what line she will reach for the glass, because if we already established it with her I need to fix it later on when I was playing Saturday,” she explained. Still, despite the tough shoot, Rapace says she was proud of the project. “I love a challenge, and this was the hardest thing I could ever imagine,” she said, adding that she could feel a connection with her characters because they were all, like many of her past roles, “women fighting in a man’s world.” The complete article can be read here.

Netflix has launched the final American trailer for “What Happened to Monday?”, alongside its official synopsis: In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them –Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home… “What Happened To Monday” hits Netflix on August 18th.

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.

While we’re still left in the dark if “Seven Sisters” is only the French / international title and the American version will be still titled “What Happened to Monday?”, promotion continues with a first set of character posters for the film’s release, featuring Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so far. See all the new posters in the photo gallery. Fingers crossed the remaining ones will be launched soon. Edit: The remaining 4 posters have been added as well.

The French theatrical trailer for “What Happened to Monday?” – called “Seven Sisters” internationally – has been released today and it looks amazing! In a world where families are limited to one child due to overpopulation, a set of identical septuplets (all played by Noomi Rapace) must avoid being put to a long sleep by the government and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own. Rapace is joined by Willem Dafoe and Glenn Close, so that’s not bad company either. Check out the trailer in the video archive. The French poster and new production stills have been added to the photo gallery.
