We wrap up our “Django” coverage with screencaptures from the final episode, “The Western Sea”. Since the series has not been released in many territories outside of Europe, I’ve worked on a new site feature to provide more in-depth information on every episode of “Django” – and while we’re at it, more information about Noomi’s other television projects. So from now on you can find additional pages for Django, Jack Ryan, The Millennium Trilogy and one of Noomi’s very first tv appearances, 2001’s Pusselbitar. I’ve tried finding more information or episode recaps on Noomi’s additional Swedish work, namely Labyrint, Stora Teatern and Tre Kronor, but haven’t been successful so far. If you have collected more information on those shows or other projects, feel free to write me. In the meantime, enjoy the screencaptures from the “Django” finale.

On we go with “Django” screencaptures from episodes 4 through 6. While there was little promotion on the series, Noomi shared some details on her role in an interview with BT TV: “Westerns was my favourite genre growing up and I saw this and it had Nicholas, Matthias and it was the perfect combo of everything. It was an easy choice to come aboard. All the characters have different flavours and colours that separate them. Matthias is sensitive and not just the tough guy.” Expanding on her character, she adds: “Elizabeth” wouldn’t stay in this box. If men can play like this, I’m going to do that – and do it worse. She’s revolting and you see that throughout the series. She’s taking back control and has this inner battle between the woman in her and the man in her. It explores the masculine and feminine in all these characters.” Enjoy the screencaptures.

I’m very happy to finally share Blu-Ray screencaptures of Noomi’s most recent appearance on the anthology series “Django”. The 10-part western starring Matthias Schoenaerts premiered in February of this year on Sky and Canal Plus – but went mostly unnoticed due to disappointing reviews and very little press. So far, the series has only been released on DVD and Blu-Ray in France. So it took me a while, but now we can enjoy Noomi’s antagonist Elizabeth Thurman in high quality screencaptures, starting with the first three episodes. Enjoy.

While “Django” has been on the air in Italy, the UK and Germany since February and March this year, it just made its way onto Sky in Sweden. To promote the 10-part series in her home country, Noomi participated in a new press junket with Swedish journalists. Two interview clips have been released on Youtube and added to the video archive, alongside a new featurette from April for the show’s UK release and additional screencaptures from its making of.

“Assassin Club” will be released in UK theaters tomorrow to as little buzz as possible. While I’m still puzzled by the early, and equally mute, theatrical release in Eastern European countries, the few reviews for its UK release give us a hint why distributor Paramount Pictures doesn’t pay much attention, as The Guardian calls it a “trashy hitman runaround is generic multiplex filler” in its review. The theatrical trailer (identical to the previously released one) can be watched below. If you want to make your own judgement on “Assassin Club”, you will find it in a UK theatre near you by tomorrow.

According to Deadline, Paramount has quietly struck a deal for completed action-thriller Assassin Club, starring Henry Golding, Noomi Rapace, Sam Neill and Daniela Melchior. Via a multi-million dollar deal struck in previous months, Paramount took worldwide rights excluding Middle East, Spain, France and Eastern Europe (which have been sold to other distributors). The Italian release on 77 screens took place this month and we understand a UK theatrical release is being lined up for March. U.S. release date hasn’t been set. The movie follows an assassin (Golding) who is given a contract to kill seven people around the world only to discover the targets are also assassins who have been hired to kill him. EuropaCorp veteran Camille Delamarre directed the movie, which shot in Italy last year. The project is produced and financed by sales firm Film Bridge International, which struck the deal with Paramount, with funding from 828 Media Capital and Banc of California. Script comes from Thomas C. Dunn.

The 10-part limited series “Django”, starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Noomi Rapace, premieres today on Canal+ in France and on Sky in most European countries. It releases with a surprisingly low promotional tour, on which Noomi hasn’t participated, so unfortunately there are no new interviews or appearances. But a great batch of additional pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

The high-octane trailer for new Sky Original series Django, a reimagining of the classic western, has been revealed today by Sky. The ten-part series had its world premiere at last year’s Rome Film Festival to great critical acclaim and is set to debut on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW in February. Directed by Francesca Comencini and loosely based on the cult classic by Sergio Corbucci, Django is set in Texas in the late 1800s, following a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he’d lost. The 10 x 60 series stars the award-winning Matthias Schoenaerts as the iconic title character, alongside Nicholas Pinnock as John Ellis, visionary founder of the town of New Babylon, Lisa Vicari, who plays Django’s daughter Sarah, and Noomi Rapace in the role of John’s powerful and ruthless enemy Elizabeth Thurman. Rounding out the cast are Jyuddah Jaymes, Benny O. Arthur and Eric Kole as John Ellis’s children and Tom Austen as cowboy Eljiah Turner.

In following his daughter’s trail, Django comes upon New Babylon, a town at the bottom of a crater, where all outcasts are welcome and where everyone is equal and free. Here, Django discovers that his daughter is alive and set to marry John Ellis, the founder of New Babylon. Sarah – who blames her father for the death of their family, massacred many years earlier while he was at war – wants Django to leave. But he refuses to give up and does everything in his power to get a second chance with her, becoming a valuable ally for Ellis, who must defend the town from Elizabeth Thurman’s attacks. Unbeknownst to them, Django, John, and Sarah are linked by a web of secrets and a dark past bound to resurface.

Django is produced for Sky and CANAL+ by Cattleya (part of ITV Studios) and Atlantique Productions (part of Mediawan) and co-produced by Sky Studios and CANAL+, in collaboration with STUDIOCANAL and Odeon Fiction and with the support of the Italian Ministry of Culture and the Romanian government. The remaining episodes are directed by David Evans (Downton Abbey) and Enrico Maria Artale (Romulus). International distribution is by STUDIOCANAL. Django will be available in all Sky markets including UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Austria & Switzerland.
