“Bright” has been released worldwide on December 22 on Netflix, and yes, it was just as disappointing as the critics have written. I didn’t find the acting any bad, it’s what you expect to get from a cop/orcs/elves movie (and you have Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramirez and Noomi Rapace). It was rather a surprisingly, shockingly thin story line. “Bright” feels like a tv pilot with overtime for something that Will Smith should have done 20 years ago. Both Smith and Edgerton are given so little to work with, Noomi was given even less with her dialogue consisting of only a bit of Elvish :-) Her character could have been credited among the stunt people just as well. And yet, I feel like “Bright” could deserve a second watch, there has to be more to Netflix’ biggest foray into motion pictures. There has to be. Screencaptures from the film have been added to the photo gallery, alongside additional pictures from the promotional tours in London, Mumbai and Tokyo – including a fantastic new photoshoot from the time during her Tokyo visit. Many thanks to Marika for all the heads-up. Enjoy the new additions.

Yes, I came up with that headline myself :-) According to the reviews collection assembled on Entertainment Weekly, Netflix’s first foray into original blockbusters has gotten a rude welcome, with reviews branding director David Ayer’s fantasy film as “embarrassing,” a “disaster,” and “the worst movie of 2017.” “Astoundingly bad in virtually every way,” writes The Wrap‘s Todd Gilchrist, “Bright shares in common several of the shortcomings of Ayer’s previous film [Suicide Squad], including conspicuous evidence of desperate efforts to cobble its under-explained and yet somehow overcomplicated mythology into something coherent.”

Todd Gilchrist (The Wrap)
“Even Will Smith’s irrepressible charisma can’t compete with the unrelentingly muddy production design, the poorly conceived characters and a profoundly stupid racial metaphor that somehow amplifies stereotypes of actual ethnic groups. The result is another genre disaster that’s only impressive in how arrogantly the filmmakers presume audiences will want it to be expanded into a franchise.”

John DeFore (The Hollywood Reporter)
“Alas, the finished product, though plenty embarrassing, isn’t quite involving enough to merit the kind of pile-on mockery that greeted Ayer’s DC Comics abomination Suicide Squad. Stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton play it mostly straight here, doing their part to sell the dopey premise, but the screenplay offers viewers little reward for our own suspension of disbelief. Rumored to be the most expensive Netflix original film to date, the pic may well attract eyeballs on the streaming outlet. But its potential as a franchise-starter is laughably small.”

Peter Debruge (Variety)
“Bright is the best Netflix original movie to date, and it absolutely deserves to be seen on the big screen, though don’t let that stop you from watching it home, as End of Watch director David Ayer’s welcome return to the cop-movie genre – following a disastrous wrong turn into Suicide Squad territory, of which we will say no more – fills an intense, grown-up movie niche that Hollywood once did so well, but has since replaced with formula-driven product.”

Article and pictures courtesy Vogue and Astrid Andersen: When an interview ends with you strapped into Noomi Rapace’s new top-of-the-line Audi as she bounces behind the wheel to top-volume Cardi B, then accelerates up Ladbroke Grove faster than anything out of North Korea, well, it’s been an awesome assignment. And when Vogue was invited to lunch with the Swedish-born actress (the original Lisbeth Salander!) and the Danish-born designer Astrid Andersen, that’s exactly how things ended up. But before we hit the road—Andersen and Rapace up front, singing and whooping as we went full throttle, me in the back, trying not to toss my salad—there was much to discuss. Royal College of Art–trained Andersen founded her menswear label in 2010, and last year started showing womenswear, too. She and Rapace didn’t meet all that long ago, but have since become firm friends. So for Spring 2018, Rapace volunteered to model Andersen’s collection (the women’s, with a sprinkling of men’s) in a shoot masterminded at the actress’s London house. That seemed like a perfect reason to meet, eat, and listen in on these two besties discussing friendship, clothes, first boyfriends, and plenty more besides. What follows is an edited record of a conversation in which, just like that hair-raising drive afterward, Vogue was very much in the back seat.

If you do something that you’re forced into, or you’re eye candy for someone, or you dress for someone else and you don’t feel comfortable, well, you don’t feel empowered and you don’t feel free. If you can’t dance in it, you can’t move in it, you can’t feel your energy and your charisma flowing, that is wrong. But if you wear something that you can move in and that makes you grow, you can come into any room and be like: Boom, here I am! You know, I never thought I would be comfortable in some places. I come from a farm and I come from no money. I didn’t even speak English seven and a half years ago. So I have to go on my intuition all the time. And I think that Astrid is very much the same; you have to go on your gut feeling.
