A first teaser trailer for Brian De Palma’s “Passion” has been launched by the Toronto International Film Festival, where the film will be shown in competition this year. Although it’s a rather brief look at the film, it’s very exciting and mysterious, especially concerning the characters that Noomi and Rachel McAdams play. The trailer can be watched in the video archive. HD screencaptures have been added to the gallery.
This evening, Noomi Rapace was awarded Best Actress for “Babycall” at the Amandaprisen, the Nordic Film Awards. “Babycall”, having received a total of seven nominations, also won Best Director Pal Sletaune. Kristofer Jonner, Noomi’s co-star in the film, was awarded Best Actor, although not for “Babycall” – for which he had received a supporting actor nomination – but for his leading performance in “Kompani Orheim”. Pictures from the awards ceremony have been added to the photo gallery with more to come.
Over 900 DVD screencaptures of Noomi’s performance in the Norwegian thriller “Babycall” have been added to the photo gallery. My most sincere thanks to Alex for guiding the film to me. Thanks! Please note that these screencaptures feature spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the film, browse them at your own risk. Enjoy the new screencaptures.
After the announcements for Venice and Toronto, “Passion” will be also shown at this year’s New York Film Festival (NYFF). A line-up has not been released, but more information on the festival and all of its entries can be found at its official website. The festival runs from September 28 to October 14, 2012.
Details of Prometheus’s deleted scenes have been released.
