Articles and interviews to promote the August 18 release of “What Happened to Monday?” are coming in. In the first, Noomi Rapace talks to Looper: Shooting took nearly five months, with Rapace called to set almost every day. Most of the time, she was acting by herself, using a green screen with tennis balls or crosses and listening to her own pre-recorded dialogue in an earpiece. Sometimes, they used doubles, with Rapace showing them exactly how she had acted out the scene when she had been the other character. “Let’s say I’m doing a scene with Saturday and I’m Monday, and then I have to kind of plan what I’m gonna do as Saturday before I’ve done it and then I have to show the double girl how to move, and how to sit, and what line she will reach for the glass, because if we already established it with her I need to fix it later on when I was playing Saturday,” she explained. Still, despite the tough shoot, Rapace says she was proud of the project. “I love a challenge, and this was the hardest thing I could ever imagine,” she said, adding that she could feel a connection with her characters because they were all, like many of her past roles, “women fighting in a man’s world.” The complete article can be read here.

Netflix has launched the final American trailer for “What Happened to Monday?”, alongside its official synopsis: In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them –Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home… “What Happened To Monday” hits Netflix on August 18th.

On Thursday, the cast and crew of David Ayer’s upcoming Netflix spectacle “Bright” made a stop at this year’s Comic-Con to premiere the official trailer. Netflix brought out Suicide Squad director David Ayer on stage along with cast Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez and more to talk about the high concept fantasy–set in our reality–film. Ayer went on to discuss that he has plans for a sequel and his inspiration for this kind of movie. He went on to give praised to Netflix for allowing him to make such a fantastical film that looks like something not really seen before. There are elements of humor in the film but doesn’t come off as too zany or slapstick like. What makes this film so unique is the setting in Los Angeles and the creatures that live there like Orcs, Fairies, and Elves living among humans. It also gives off a political tone with the discussion of race and the abuse of magic (power) that really gives it that realistic push that Ayer tends to do.



A day before the Comic-Con premiere, they also joined Conan O’Brien on his show – which is held in San Diego during the Comic-Con. Pictures from all events – the panel, press conference and Conan apppearance – have been added to the photo gallery. Additionally, videos have been added as well, alongside a first production still and trailer screencaptures of Noomi. Many many thanks to Claudia and Maria for their submissions. “Bright” will debut on Netflix on December 22, 2017.

A nice interview with Noomi Rapace by The Wall Street Journal to promote the August-release of “What Happened to Monday?” in the United States: Before filming started, actress Noomi Rapace worried that her next role would be a “suicide mission.” In “What Happened to Monday?”, a Netflix film that debuts in mid-August, Ms. Rapace stars as a set of septuplets in hiding from a government that brutally enforces a one-child policy due to overpopulation. Each of the seven sisters has a very different personality, and for scenes in which they interact, Ms. Rapace filmed alongside a body double or in front of a green screen with tennis balls marking the places of her siblings. Ms. Rapace, 37, is best known for playing Lisbeth Salander, the antisocial computer-hacker heroine in the original Swedish-language “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” film series (2009), based on Stieg Larsson’s books. After that performance, she quickly learned to speak English and went on to star in Hollywood films, including “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” (2011) and “Prometheus” (2012). In “What Happened to Monday?”, set in a dystopian future, the sisters are named for days of the week and can only leave their house on that day. Outside their apartment, they must all pretend to be the same person. After the sister named Monday disappears, the others try to figure out what happened to her. The complete interview can be read over here.
