Better late then never, here’s an update on the February 26 free screening of the Oscar-winning “The Salesman” at Trafalgar Square, which Noomi attended. Celebrities, activists and film buffs have joined forces for a movie screening in Trafalgar Square in an impassioned protest against Donald Trump’s travel ban. Model Lily Cole is among Mariella Frostrup, director Mike Leigh and Blur frontman Damon Albarn at the UK premiere of The Salesman, which is up for best foreign language film at the Oscars. Asghar Farhadi, the drama’s Iranian director who won an Academy Award in 2012, is boycotting the star-studded event in California over Mr Trump’s travel ban, which bars people from seven Muslim-majority countries entering America. Lily Cole told the crowd of some 10,000 protesters Trump’s travel ban is ‘unnecessary in this day and age’ because cities like London are ‘wonderfully open’, and warned we may yet see ‘more ludicrous policies’. Khan took to the stage, and after a few microphone issues which prevented him being heard, declared to loud cheers: ‘President Trump can’t silence me.’

We got to see an extended Alien: Covenant prologue a few days ago, one that focused on the many unimportant characters who will die horrible deaths at the hand of an incredibly scary creature on the new planet they plan to colonize. It’s now time to watch all hell break loose in a brand new clip that shows our humans in disarray after they come to realize they’re not alone on that planet. Ridley Scott’s new Alien movie comes out May 19th, and we can only hope it’ll be as good as the original. What’s pretty clear from this trailer is that the scary-looking Alien is back. Well, technically, everything in Alien: Covenant happens before the original Alien movie. That pretty much means the Aliens will likely win this battle, no matter how many of them die. From the looks of this new trailer, it’s going to be pretty difficult to kill one of these bastards. As always, the human characters and their handy Android, will not be ready for what’s about to hit them. The trailer also offers us a connection with Prometheus, which becomes immediately clear: somehow, it’s the same advanced race of aliens to blame. And for those looking closely… still no Noomi in sight.

As streaming services increasingly muscle in on traditional distributors’ turf, we’re seeing more from the likes if Netflix and Amazon. The former even ran a trailer for one of its original movies during the Oscars on Sunday night, so get your first proper look at David Ayer’s Bright, starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace. Max Landis’ original concept script blends fantasy mythology with End Of Watch-style cop action, as Smith and Edgerton are playing a human and an orc who must outrun the authorities, criminals and a variety of supernatural beings to protect a powerful magic wand. Lucy Fry is Tikka, a young elf with her own magical abilities who comes into possession of the wand and needs the leads’ help when dark forces try to hunt her down. From the first glimpse of the film, it’s certainly interesting, with a cast that also includes Edgar Ramirez and Ike Barinholtz. It’ll hit Netflix in December.

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”‘s Tommy Wirkola directed the feature, “Set 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.” 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 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.
