Welcome to the new version of Noomi Rapace Online. I wanted to give the site a fresher look, yet keep it simple and effective, as always :-) Besides the new layout, I’ve worked on all of the subpages as well and am going to focus on the career pages within the next updates. The filmography sites have been neglected a bit in the past, but with two very promsing films on the horizon – “Animal Rescue” and “Child 44” – it’s time to do some research and revamp the film pages with all essential information. The photo gallery and video archive has received matching layouts as well, so have a look and enjoy browsing. If you find any error, please let me know. And in case you like the new layout, let me know as well :-)
2012 has been a busy year for Noomi – and a very important one for her international career with her first leading role in an anticpated US production to emerge. But first, there was a theatrical release of “Babycall“, a thriller Noomi had done in Denmark in 2011. Although it was released already in the Nordic countries, the film released UK theaters in March 2012. The same month, Noomi started shooting “Passion” in Berlin with director Brian DePalma. The project was met with much interest due to its director and the premise of Noomi and Rachel McAdams playing the lead roles in an erotic mysterious thriller. Also in March, the trailer for “Prometheus” was launched – the film that would dominate Noomi’s year throughout. The trailer was accompanied by a lenghty article in Britain’s Empire Magazine, featuring Noomi – in character as Elizabeth Shaw – as their cover girl. An early premiere for “Prometheus” was held in Paris on April 10, with director Ridley Scott and the cast, including Michael Fassbender and Charlie Theron in attendance. More eagerly anticipated material for the film was released in April with a first featurette and lots of behind-the-scenes footage. In May, the “Prometheus” trio of Rapace, Fassbender and Theron graced the cover of the US Entertainment Weekly with another insightful article of the film, treated as one of the biggest Summer films of the year.
Welcome to the new version of Noomi Rapace Online. No worries, it’s still the old site. But with the theatrical release of “Prometheus” this week in Europe and next week in the USA, I figured it would be the right timing to launch a new look for the site. All content is still up with updates being made to pretty much every page. Expect more additions to the gallery and video archives soon. Until then, please browse around and enjoy the new and modified Noomi Rapace Online.
Today, Noomi Rapace Online turns one year old! I’d like to take this opportunity – besides celebration – to thank those who’ve helped in making this fansite what it is after twelve short months. Klara has been a contributor in the early weeks of the site, sending in some great clips and magazine scans. Laura was kind enough to let me use parts of her Noomi material when she moved on from her own fansite. Alvaro, a long-time friend, has never hesitated to send in anything on Noomi he found. And the site would definately not be as complete and comprehensive today without the generous help of Emma, who’s contributed lots and lots of captures and rare finds that you will find throughout the site. To all of you – including everyone I’ve forgotten to mention here – a big thank you. And to the visitors, there will be two extensive updates later today to celebrate – so check back in time!
Something I wanted to add to Noomi Rapace Online since its opening was a special on the three Millennium films – and finally, it has been created. Head over for the special for all essential info on the films, the characters and its author, Stieg Larsson. Additionally, I made a tribute video for the three films to bring you into the mood to re-watch the films :-) Enjoy!
A new section has been added to Noomi Rapace Online – the print archive features both articles and interviews with Noomi from the past years to the current. Have a look and check back for additions. If you have an article that isn’t featured yet in the archive, feel free to drop me a line.
In the past days I have received quite an amount of emails addressed to Noomi will all kinds of questions and inquiries. As it’s stated on the site, the given email address is of course not Noomi’s, but the webmaster’s email address for website purposes. Therefore, no emails that are dediacted to Noomi to this email address will be forwarded or answered. To give fans and organisations a guideline on how to contact Noomi, I’ve created a contact page that includes addresses of Noomi’s American and Swedish management.
Here comes a fantastic new feature to Noomi Rapace Online – a video archive! Have a look at trailers and scenes of her films, latest television segments and both recent and older talkshow appearances. There is already much to discover with more to come. Enjoy!
The career section and gallery have been updated with extensive information on Noomi’s work in the theatre. You can now find detail pages on each production that Noomi has participated in, ranging from Strindberg’s The Father to Sarah Kane’s controversial Blasted to her most recent performance as Medea. Each page is accompanied by background information and pictures, so have a look :-)
