Empire Magazine has a Friday treat for everyone who’s looking forward to “The Drop” – the film’s UK poster and trailer, which features new scenes with Noomi. Here’s what they write: Tom Hardy stars as Bob Saginowski, a quiet man living in a poor part of New York City. He tends bar for his Cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), a bar that also operates as a drop point for illegal merchandise and money. He meets Nadia (Noomi Rapace) when he rescues a beaten dog outside her house, but has bigger problems on his mind after the bar is robbed at gunpoint and Bob finds himself pulled into the investigation of what happened. Roskam’s Bullhead star Matthias Schoenaerts plays the injured dog’s owner, Eric, who butts up against Bob when he tries to reclaim the injured animal and John Ortiz rounds out the cast as a police officer investigating the robbery.
Fox Searchlight has released the theatrical trailer for “The Drop”, starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini in his final film. Directed by “Bullhead” filmmaker Michael Roskam, “The Drop” follows an ex-con trying to go straight, working a legit job in a bar, whose life gets upended by a robbery gone wrong. It’s potent stuff, particularly for this Brooklyn-set tale, and Roskam knew he had a great duo in Hardy and Gandolfini, according to a recent article by USA Today. “I could see there was a bit of a smile between them. It was like, ‘We’re going to nail this, right?’ ” Roskam said of the production. “And they did this intense scene and were just spot on. There was a beautiful connection between those two guys.” You can watch the trailer in the video archive, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
It’s been a while since the video archive has received some proper care, so today’s update will surely make up it with that. Eighteen new clips have been added, ranging from Noomi’s 2009/2010 promotion for the “Millennium” trilogy around the world, various public appearances to a couple of “Prometheus” screen tests and a recent appearance at the Apple SoHo Store’s “Meet the Filmmakers” series for “Dead Man Down”. For a complete list of all new videos, simply click one of the previews below. Enjoy watching!
Many of today’s great actors have made their first steps on soap operas – and Noomi makes no exception. Back in 1996, when she still went by her birth name Noomi NorÃ©n, the 17-year-old had her first professional job on the Swedish soap “Tre Kronor”, playing troublemaking runaway Lucinda Gonzales. She appeared throughout the show’s sixth season before her character was reunited with her parents. I’ve added clips from all of Noomi’s twelve episodes to the video archive. Enjoy watching.
Today, the US trailer for “Passion” has been released – exactly the one shown by Entertainment Tonight two days ago. Additionally, I’ve added three clips from the film to the video archive. Two scenes feature Isabelle (Noomi) and her boss Christine (Rachel McAdams). The third clip sheds some light on Isabelle’s relationship with her assistant Dani (Karoline Herfurth). The clips are all rather brief, but worth to get you in the mood for the film’s August 30 release in the USA (it will release theatrically and on VOD). In case you can play R2 DVDs, you can also get French release of the DVD and Blu-Ray over at Amazon.
Yesterday, Entertainment Tonight has premiered the US trailer for “Passion”. It differs from the international trailer we already know – and beware that it’s even more spoilerish, for those who haven’t seen the original (or the remake’s international release). Many thanks to Lindsey for the heads-up! Alongside the trailer, which will surely be launched in full these coming days, a couple of new stills and on-set pictures from the film have been added as well, according to “Passion”‘s official Facebook site.
A six minutes featurette on “Passion” has been released, including interviews with Brian DePalma, Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace and Karoline Herfurth, and featuring lots of scenes from the film throughout. Please be aware that the scenes might contain spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the original film, be warned :-) Many thanks to Lindsey for the heads-up.
