The previously leaked pre-sales trailer for “Dead Man Down” is indeed the theatrical trailer for the film’s March 8, 2013, release. Now, it has been launched in great HD quality and can be viewed in the video archive. HD captures as well as a first production still have been added to the gallery as well.

Collin Farrell stars as Victor, a New York crime lord’s right-hand-man, who is seeking vengeance on his boss, whom is responsible for the death of his family. Meanwhile Beatrice (Rapace), a victim of Victor’s boss, is seeking revenge and enlists Victor’s help. “Revenge. I’ve never thought about it before. But when I saw you, I knew I had my answer,” Beatrice says in the trailer. It seems she has videotaped Victor committing a murder, and uses this leverage – as well as her powers of seduction – to force him to help her. From FilmDistrict, Dead Man Down also stars Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard. It’s slated for a March 8, 2013 release.

2012 has been a busy year for Noomi – and a very important one for her international career with her first leading role in an anticpated US production to emerge. But first, there was a theatrical release of “Babycall“, a thriller Noomi had done in Denmark in 2011. Although it was released already in the Nordic countries, the film released UK theaters in March 2012. The same month, Noomi started shooting “Passion” in Berlin with director Brian DePalma. The project was met with much interest due to its director and the premise of Noomi and Rachel McAdams playing the lead roles in an erotic mysterious thriller. Also in March, the trailer for “Prometheus” was launched – the film that would dominate Noomi’s year throughout. The trailer was accompanied by a lenghty article in Britain’s Empire Magazine, featuring Noomi – in character as Elizabeth Shaw – as their cover girl. An early premiere for “Prometheus” was held in Paris on April 10, with director Ridley Scott and the cast, including Michael Fassbender and Charlie Theron in attendance. More eagerly anticipated material for the film was released in April with a first featurette and lots of behind-the-scenes footage. In May, the “Prometheus” trio of Rapace, Fassbender and Theron graced the cover of the US Entertainment Weekly with another insightful article of the film, treated as one of the biggest Summer films of the year.

According to Variety, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are in talks to star in Fox Searchlight’s “Animal Rescue,” based on the short story by Dennis Lehane. Variety first reported that Hardy was circling the project when it was announced that Michael R. Roskam would direct. Lehane will also pen the script, which follows a lonely Boston bartender who rescues a puppy from a garbage can and becomes the target of the dog’s abusive and mentally unstable former owner, while simultaneously getting caught in the middle of a criminal conspiracy playing out in his mob-controlled bar. Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark and Jenno Topping are producing with Mike Larocca. Production is tentatively skedded to start early next year. The CAA-repped Hardy had just wrapped production on Warner Bros.’ “Fury Road” and had been weighing several projects including “Everest” and Summit’s “Child 44,” which Rapace had also been circling.

On Thursday, Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy, among others, have attended the English National Ballet’s Christmas Party in London. Pictures can be found in the image library.

The Italian Vogue has an early Christmas gift for us – an astonishing new pictorial of Noomi Rapace in their December 2012 issue. Have a look at the amazing scans. Thanks to everybody for the heads-up!

On December 09, Noomi Rapace has attended the British Independent Film Awards in London. Pictures have been added to the gallery. Past nominees, patrons and supporters of BIFA were also in attendance to take part in a special group photo to celebrate the 15th Birthday of the Awards, taken under the iconic UK flag. Prior to the awards, guests dined on a delicious seasonal menu and enjoyed magnums of Moët & Chandon.

Additionally to the pictures, a compilation of interviews from the red carpet has been added to the video archive as well. Noomi Rapace talks about the upcoming “Prometheus” sequel, her excitement to work with Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender again, as well as working with Brian DePalma and Rachel McAdams on the upcoming thriller “Passion” and her love of British Independent Cinema. Enjoy.

At long last, over 1.000 DVD screencaptures of “Prometheus” have been added to the image library. It has been great fun to rewatch the film again since I enjoyed it very much when it released theaters. I’m surprised though that it has been “only” solid. People have appreciated it as a film, but not as good as expected within the “Alien” prequel. I thought it was flawless – interesting story, amazing cinematography and good suspense. Plus, Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender gave a fantastic duo on screen. Enjoy the new captures.
