“You Won’t Be Alone”, Goran Stolevski’s supernatural drama, which has just been chosen as Australia’s candidate for the Academy Awards (see update below) is available on various streaming services in the US and UK (you can check the availability for your country over at ReelGood). Noomi stars in a smaller role as one of the Macedonia townspeople in the 19th century, whose life is affected by the witch living among them. She’s part of a great ensemble in a fantastic film. Very recommended if you’re looking for something different. Screencaptures from the film have been added to the photo gallery.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Django” will celebrate its world-premiere at the Rome Film Festival this Sunday: Set, like the original film, in the period after the American Civil War, the series combines plot elements from both Django and its official 1987 sequel Django Strikes Again, themes from Tarantino’s film — particularly the role of Black people and freed slaves in old West — as well as adding several original ideas of its own. Even Django’s famous weapons-packed coffin makes an appearance, though in a very different setting than the original. The series’ main story sees Django, played by The Old Guard and Amsterdam actor Matthias Schoenaerts, searching for his lost daughter, whom he believes survived the murder of his family years before. His journey takes him to New Babylon, a town run by the visionary John Ellis (Top Boy’s Nicholas Pinnock), who has created a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic utopia walled off from the violent divisions of 19th century Texas. “Django is extremely contemporary: it touches upon themes that go from characters’ psychology to family and from inclusivity to diversity,” says Nils Hartmann, executive vp of Sky Studios Italy and Germany, of the new show. Django will roll out 2023 exclusively on Sky across its European pay-TV footprint, on Canal+ in France, Poland, Switzerland and Africa, and via M7 in Benelux, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. Studiocanal is selling the series worldwide. The complete article can be read over at The Hollywood Reporter.

The English-language reimagining of the world of Sergio Corbucci’s cult 1966 spaghetti western “Django” is set to launch from the Rome Film Festival in October. The high–concept TV series, titled “Django,” will play in 2023 exclusively on Sky and its streaming service NOW in all countries where Sky operates, including the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria. It will also air on Canal+ in France, Switzerland, Benelux and Africa. The Rome Film Festival runs from Oct. 13-23. The 10-episode “Django” show stars Matthias Schoenaerts as the iconic gunman who is the title character, alongside Nicholas Pinnock as John Ellis, described as the “visionary founder” of the town of New Babylon. Lisa Vicari plays Django’s daughter Sarah and Noomi Rapace has the adversarial role of John’s powerful and ruthless enemy Elizabeth Thurman. The first four episodes are directed by Francesca Comencini who also handled the show’s overall artistic supervision. The remaining six episodes are directed by David Evans and Enrico Maria Artale. Filming took place in Romania, between Racos, Bucharest and the Danube area. Here’s the teaser trailer and screencaptures.
Hello everybody. It’s very quiet, Noomi-wise. So, while we’re awaiting any news on the upcoming releases of the “Django” miniseries as well as “Assassination Club” (no release dates have been announced so far), I made a trip to the archives and uploaded new pictures from the promotional tours for the “Millennium” trilogy (time goes by so fast) as well as the international tour for Netflix’s “Bright” in 2017. To access all last added pictures, have a look at the previews below. Enjoy your Sunday.

Noomi and James D’Arcy are currently shooting the Apple TV+ series “Constellations” in Germany. On their day off on June 08, they attended the NRW Summer Branch Meeting, a function to promote recent and upcoming German produced productions. Created and written by Peter Harness (The War of the Worlds), Constellation stars Rapace as Jo, a woman 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, one woman’s desperate quest to expose the truth about the hidden history of space travel and for her to recover all that she has lost.

Screencaptures from three of Noomi’s films – Babycall, Dead Man Down and Passion – have been re-added to the photo gallery in better Blu-Ray quality. It was quite interesting revisiting these projects which were made in the first couple of years after Noomis “Millennium” breakout – here you have a chilling Nordic thriller, a very generic American actioner and a very stylish arthouse retro by Brian DePalma. If you haven’t seen them in a while, I’d recommend any of those for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Enjoy.
Swedish director Ruben Ostlund’s class warfare comedy “Triangle of Sadness” won the Palme d’Or on Saturday. The awards were selected by a nine-member jury headed by French actor Vincent Lindon and presented Saturday in a closing ceremony inside Cannes’ Grand Lumière Theater. The jury’s second prize, the Grand Prix, was shared between Lukas Dhont’s drama “Close” and French filmmaking legend Claire Denis’ “Stars at Noon.” Korean star Song Kang Ho was named best actor for Hirokazu Kore-eda’s film “Broker,” while Best actress went to Zar Amir Ebrahimi for her performance as a journalist in Ali Abbasi’s “Holy Spider.” Saturday’s closing ceremony brought to a close a Cannes that attempted to fully resuscitate the annual France extravaganza that was canceled in 2020 by the pandemic and saw modest crowds last year. As Noomi mentioned in an interview during the festival, she is now off to start shooting the Apple TV+ series “Constellation”.
