In the wake of “Child 44″‘s US trailer being released, an international trailer for the UK has been published as well, featuring quite a few new scenes. Check it out in the video archive. Also, check back in a minute for a new batch of production stills from the film.
Finally, a theatrical trailer for “Child 44″ has been released. After the film has been in post-production for 1 1/2 years, it’s finally slated for a theatrical release in the USA this April 17th. Based on the bestselling novel, the big screen adaptation of “Child 44″ is produced by Ridley Scott and stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, and Vincent Cassel. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added as well.
For e-tailers like MatchesFashion.com, print media offers a fresh way to curate the brand. The London-based luxury site publishes a biannual magazine, The Style Report, with two issues at a timeâ€”one for men, one for women. The zine features current must-have clothes, accessories, and jewelry, naturally, along with stories about industry tastemakers. The face of the fourth womenâ€™s issue is Noomi Rapace, whom you probably know from her turns in Prometheus and the Swedish version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. In the interview, Rapace discusses the contrast between her gritty characters and her real-life love of fashion. â€śI am not drawn to characters that are just sweet and cute, or sexy, and beautiful, because it doesnâ€™t mean anything,â€ť she says. For the complete issue (and the menâ€™s version, which stars Zachary Quinto), head over to MatchesFashion.com today.
Noomi has been spotted in London to continue shooting Michael Apted’s “Unlocked” and Daily Mail has written more about it: Noomi Rapace proved she’s still got some dynamic moves in her repertoire on the set of her latest movie, displaying her fitness levels in London on Thursday. The beautiful Swedish actress is currently in the British capital filming Unlocked alongside Orlando Bloom. The 35-year-old got involved with what appeared to be her own stunts during filming, hanging upside down on a climbing frame in front of the river Thames, without the need for any help or protection. As well as managing to keep her balance (and showing off her toned quad muscles in the process), the super-fit star also added in a few impressive sit-ups. Keeping her balance, Noomi also jumped over the rails of the climbing frame carefully, taking care not to lose footing. The gritty new action thriller follows the terrifying story of a biological warfare threat on the British capital. Specifically, the story follows a CIA interrogator who is lured into a ploy that puts London at risk of such an attack. Unlocked is directed by Michael Apted, who is best known for films The World Is Not Enough and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and it also stars notable names Michael Douglas, John Malkovich, and Toni Collette.
With Noomi currently shooting “Unlocked” in London, there isn’t much to report. Therefore, I’ve checked what has been left to update, and found a bunch of magazine scans to be added. They include the British Time Out (thanks Alvaro) and Stella Magazine (great cover), the US Porter Magazine as well as the French Grazia magazine, with many thanks to Mina. Enjoy the new scans.

According to an interview with Noomi in the German newspaper Tagesspiegel, “Alive Alone” is not going to happen after all. This is bad news since the project sounded very exciting and it was apparent throughout the year how Noomi prepared visually for the part. The interview was conducted at the San Sebastian Film Festival back in September, so I’m a bit surprised there hasn’t been an official announcement on the project’s fate since then. Here’s a translation of the part of the interview, which revolved around Noomi’s extensive preparation for each new role:
For “Alive Alone”, I had the feeling to be extremly vulnerable. I was supposed to play a drug addicted prostitute. For this, I starved myself to a minimum weight and have spent much time with prostitutes and drug addicts to really feel how they live. I wanted to dig as deep as possible into human abyss and shut myself out of the real world. Unfortunately, the project was called off shortly before filming began.
