In the past few weeks, I have worked behind the scenes to bring a new, mobile friendly video archive to Noomi Rapace Online. The old one has stopped working a while ago on mobile devices, so I’m happy to finally launch the new archive. All the clips from the old archive are uploaded and lots of new clips have been added as well. From Noomi’s first appearance on the Swedish soap opera Tre Kronor to the December-releasing Netflix thriller Bright, all of her projects are covered with trailers, featurettes – as well as talkshow appearances, awards ceremonies, news appearances and television specials. My thanks to MonicaN for providing the plugin. Enjoy!
While “Rupture” has been released on demand and on Blu-Ray in most European countries, the United States are still awaiting its theatrical release, where it’s available to watch on DirecTV starting March 30 and is released in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on April 28. To promote its release, a new trailer with some heavy spoilers has been released, alongside a news blip from Entertainment Weekly: In the science fiction film Rupture, Noomi Rapace plays a single mother named Renee who is deathly terrified of spiders and is violently abducted by a group of strangers. After enduring intense questioning and examinations, Renee discovers she is now the subject of an underground experiment and her captors believe she has a genetic abnormality that can potentially allow her to â€śruptureâ€ť and reveal her alien nature.
We got to see an extended Alien: Covenant prologue a few days ago, one that focused on the many unimportant characters who will die horrible deaths at the hand of an incredibly scary creature on the new planet they plan to colonize. Itâ€™s now time to watch all hell break loose in a brand new clip that shows our humans in disarray after they come to realize theyâ€™re not alone on that planet. Ridley Scottâ€™s new Alien movie comes out May 19th, and we can only hope itâ€™ll be as good as the original. Whatâ€™s pretty clear from this trailer is that the scary-looking Alien is back. Well, technically, everything in Alien: Covenant happens before the original Alien movie. That pretty much means the Aliens will likely win this battle, no matter how many of them die. From the looks of this new trailer, itâ€™s going to be pretty difficult to kill one of these bastards. As always, the human characters and their handy Android, will not be ready for whatâ€™s about to hit them. The trailer also offers us a connection with Prometheus, which becomes immediately clear: somehow, itâ€™s the same advanced race of aliens to blame. And for those looking closely… still no Noomi in sight.
As streaming services increasingly muscle in on traditional distributors’ turf, we’re seeing more from the likes if Netflix and Amazon. The former even ran a trailer for one of its original movies during the Oscars on Sunday night, so get your first proper look at David Ayer’s Bright, starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace. Max Landis’ original concept script blends fantasy mythology with End Of Watch-style cop action, as Smith and Edgerton are playing a human and an orc who must outrun the authorities, criminals and a variety of supernatural beings to protect a powerful magic wand. Lucy Fry is Tikka, a young elf with her own magical abilities who comes into possession of the wand and needs the leads’ help when dark forces try to hunt her down. From the first glimpse of the film, it’s certainly interesting, with a cast that also includes Edgar Ramirez and Ike Barinholtz. It’ll hit Netflix in December.
The trailer and poster for “Unlocked” has been released today, and it looks very good. That being said, the film has been awaiting theatrical release for over three years, so one was worried what could have gone wrong. London is under biological attack from terrorists in Unlocked, and only Noomi Rapace has the key. Rapace stars as a CIA operative who finds her mission compromised. She’s forced to team up with an MI5 agent, played by Orlando Bloom, to track down the terrorist infiltration and prevent a major attack. Along the way, she’s ably assisted (or hindered?) by the likes of Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, and John Malkovich. Quite a cast. Veteran British director Michael Apted is behind the camera on this one, which makes sense given his Bond pedigree on The World Is Not Enough. Unlocked arrives on 5 May. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery, alongside the film’s poster.
20th Century Fox has a very special Christmas gift for everyone who’s eagerly anticipating “Alien: Covenant” – the first theatrical trailer. Bad things first, there’s no sight of Noomi, and judging from how the story evolves it’s difficult to picture Elizabeth Shaw being any part of this new story. But let’s see. Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape. “Alien: Covenant” hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
A second clip from the beginning of “Rupture” has been launched, showing us more of Noomi Rapace’s Renee, before all the horror starts. Additionally, four new production stills have been added to the photo gallery. Many thanks to Marinka for finding both.
