According to Bloody Disgusting, the sci-fi thriller “What Happened to Monday?”, which was filmed in July 2015 at the Castel Film Studios in Bucharest, has been retitled to “Seven Sisters” for its international release, locked for France this coming August. “Dead Snow” and “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”âs Tommy Wirkola directed the feature, âSet in a world where families are allowed only one child due to overpopulation, a resourceful set of seven identical sisters must avoid governmental execution and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.â Noomi Rapace plays all seven sisters, who are named after the days of the week. Willem Dafoe and Glenn Close also star in the film, with Marwan Kenzari, Christian Rubeck and Pal Sverre Hagen. Close plays the fierce head of the Child Allocation Bureau, Nicolette Cayman. It was produced by Vendome Pictures and Raffaella Productions and fully financed by SND, which will handle French distribution rights as well as international sales. The script was written by Kerry Williamson and Max Botkin. Watch for a U.S. release as it comes in.
The BAFTA Awards are happening as we speak, and the first pictures of Noomi in an unconventional look on the red carpet have been added to the photo gallery. Edit: Hundreds of additional pictures from the arrivals, the show (Noomi presented the big award of the night, Best Film, together with Tom Hiddleston), press room and after-party have been added. Many many thanks to the wonderful Claudia and Lindsey for their contributions. Much appreciated.

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.
According to Deadline, Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace have been set to star in Stockholm, a thriller written and to be directed by Robert Budreau, who wrote and directed Hawke in the Chet Baker biopic Born To Be Blue. Production is now set to begin in April with Sierra/Affinity to handle international sales beginning at the European Film Market next month in Berlin. The pic is based on the true story of a 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis in Stockholm that was documented in a 1974 New Yorker article âThe Bank Dramaâ by Daniel Lang. The hostages bonded with their captors and turned against the authorities, and gave rise to the psychological phenomenon âStockholm syndrome.â Scott Aversano and Will Russell-Shapiro are exec producing and overseeing via Aversano Films along with Jason Blum via Blumhouse Productions. Nicholas Tabarrok will produce via his Darius Films banner, with Budreau via his Lumanity banner, and Jonathan Bronfman via his JoBro Productions banner. William Santor, John Hills and Andrew Chang-Sang are also executive producing for financier Productivity Media. Here’s hoping that “Stockholm” will move forward faster than “Unlocked” or “What Happened to Monday?”
A big batch of additional production stills from the recently released “Rupture” have been added to the photo gallery. “Rupture” is available in most European countries and the United States and is awaiting theatrical release in Russia. Enjoy the new scans.
Today, “Rupture” releases on DVD and Blu-Ray in the United Kingdom, and later this month in Germany and other European countries. Having received my copy already, it’s been disappointing to see Noomi in a thriller that, on the one hand is keeping its pace, but on the other is airless and without a message (nevermind a sense) at all. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery.
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.
