Apple TV+ today shared the first images from “Constellation,” a new eight-part, conspiracy-based psychological thriller drama starring Noomi Rapace and Emmy Award nominee Jonathan Banks. Created and written by Peter Harness, also starring James D’Arcy, Julian Looman, William Catlett, Barbara Sukowa and introducing Rosie and Davina Coleman as Alice. Directed by Emmy Award winner Michelle MacLaren, Oscar nominee Oliver Hirschbiegel and Oscar nominee Joseph Cedar, “Constellation” will make its global debut with the first three episodes on Wednesday, February 21, 2024 on Apple TV+, followed by one episode weekly through March 27.

“Constellation” stars Rapace as Jo — an astronaut who returns to Earth after a disaster in space — only to discover that key pieces of her life seem to be missing. The action-packed space adventure is an exploration of the dark edges of human psychology, and one woman’s desperate quest to expose the truth about the hidden history of space travel and recover all that she has lost.

Produced by Turbine Studios and Haut et Court TV, the series is executive produced by David Tanner, Tracey Scoffield, Caroline Benjo, Simon Arnal, Carole Scotta and Justin Thomson. MacLaren directs the first two episodes and executive produces with Rebecca Hobbs and co-executive producer Jahan Lopes for MacLaren Entertainment. Harness executive produces through Haunted Barn Ltd. The series was shot principally in Germany and was series produced by Daniel Hetzer for Turbine Studios, Germany.

For the October 2023 issue of the Swedish Nuda Paper (a biannual hardcover publication), Icelandic poet, novelist, and lyricist Sjón and Noomi Rapace join for a discussion on the complexity of the human species and its most salient features. A wide-ranging interivew accompanied by a fantastic new editorial featuring Noomi. Drawing from memories of their Icelandic childhood and recent experiences with their surroundings, Sjón and Rapace highlight the meaningful influence that an innate connection with nature has had on how they think of life. As they investigate the links between human evolution and climate change, the conversation rapidly turns into a call to action to denounce the abuses inflicted on the most fragile, animals and humans alike. From the necessity to take control of our competitiveness to the disillusionment with today’s materialistic system, the two pinpoint the perks and flaws of what being human entails while stressing the urge to go back to our most genuine essence. The article can be read on the Nuda Paper website, the hardcover can be ordered in their shop.

After having completed Noomi’s recent TV tenure on “Django”, I have spent some more time researching her previous tv work – which proves a difficult task since most of Noomi’s early work on Swedish television has never been released on DVD or has been shown outside of Sweden. But, I was successful in finding additional promotional stills for “Tre Kronor” and “Stora Teatern”, as well as screencaptures and videos from the 2007 drama series “Labyrint”, for which Noomi also participated in so-called mobisodes – short extras to the general episodes which were exclusively shown online. Those can be now found in the video archive, all courtesy cinematographer Alex Linden’s Vimeo page. All photo updates can be found below. Enjoy.

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.

With no news on “Constellation” (Apple TV+ is not listing it right now among its more recent premieres) and the dual strike doing adding to the film industry standing still, there’s nothing happening right now to report on. So let’s just go back to the beginning and revisit how it all started. I’ve added additional public appearances pictures from 2009 to 2010 – the time Noomi rose to international fame thanks to the “Millennium” trilogy’s success. As the films released throughout Europe throughout 2010, Noomi was a rising star at various film festivals and started picking up accolades for her performance. For a complete list of updates, have a look at the list below.
