After two years of waiting, our question of what has happened to Monday has finally been answered, as Tommy Wirkola’s scifi action thriller is available for streaming on Netflix since Friday. There’s a lot to say about the movie, good things and bad things, but one thing is for sure – “Monday” has been worth the wait. Noomi delivers a true tour de force, being able to indeed pull of seven performances with seven different characters. The great special effects do her a great service by blending all sisters together effortlessly. After a couple of minutes you don’t think about how they have done and just enjoy the performances. Without spoiling the story, the film is much more violent than expected, unnecessarily vulgar throughout, loses its pace after the first half and picks it up right when it has to. The first thing I thought when the ending credits started rolling, is that I have to watch it again to see how good it really works and how it connects all the dots. So “Monday” is a definite recommendation. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery, and their amount is huge because Noomi is in almost every single frame of the film, and please be advised that the captures also feature massive spoilers – so if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to watch it on Netflix to enjoy it fully.

Today’s release of “What Happened to Monday?” and the recent promotion of “Bright” at the San Diego Comic-Con has put Noomi on the spot for the past days – and on the pages of Vanity Fair Italia, Empire Magazine and The Red Bulletin.

Netflix has launched the final American trailer for “What Happened to Monday?”, alongside its official synopsis: In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them –Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home… “What Happened To Monday” hits Netflix on August 18th.
On Tuesday, Noomi Rapace and director Tommy Wirkola have attended a screening for “What Happened to Monday” arranged by Netflix in West Hollywood. This marks the first promotional turn in the United States after a first promotion tour for the French release has taken place earlier this month. Pictures from the screening have been added to the photo gallery.
The German trailer for “What Happened to Monday?” has been released today and it features quite a new scenes from the film. Tommy Wirkola’s futuristic thriller has also received a German release date for September 07, 2017, and an official website. Fans from Switzerland will get a chance to see it earlier with a premiere at the Locarno Film Festival. The trailer has been added to the video archive, the German poster and screencaptures can be found in the photo gallery.
On Thursday, the cast and crew of David Ayer’s upcoming Netflix spectacle “Bright” made a stop at this year’s Comic-Con to premiere the official trailer. Netflix brought out Suicide Squad director David Ayer on stage along with cast Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez and more to talk about the high concept fantasy–set in our reality–film. Ayer went on to discuss that he has plans for a sequel and his inspiration for this kind of movie. He went on to give praised to Netflix for allowing him to make such a fantastical film that looks like something not really seen before. There are elements of humor in the film but doesn’t come off as too zany or slapstick like. What makes this film so unique is the setting in Los Angeles and the creatures that live there like Orcs, Fairies, and Elves living among humans. It also gives off a political tone with the discussion of race and the abuse of magic (power) that really gives it that realistic push that Ayer tends to do.
A day before the Comic-Con premiere, they also joined Conan O’Brien on his show – which is held in San Diego during the Comic-Con. Pictures from all events – the panel, press conference and Conan apppearance – have been added to the photo gallery. Additionally, videos have been added as well, alongside a first production still and trailer screencaptures of Noomi. Many many thanks to Claudia and Maria for their submissions. “Bright” will debut on Netflix on December 22, 2017.
Noomi is featured in the current Malibu Magazine with a fantastic interview, by Felicity Martin, and a great new photoshoot. The last chapter remains the most interesting one: It’s not just the world of acting that Rapace is conquering. She’s just designed a clothing collection for a brand (“It’s very street, very hip-hop.”) She’s also launching a perfume later this year (“I’m doing a lot of stuff for fun,” she says). What I really want to know, however, is about the rumors she’s playing Amy Winehouse in an upcoming biopic. “Maybe … We’ll see. I’m involved in it, and I’m working on it, but all the components need to be right.” She smiles, explaining how, when they asked her to play Winehouse, she initially refused to read the script. “I have a strong connection to Amy. She was really present, her music, in the most critical moments of my life.” Rapace’s quest for perfection is particularly crucial on this project. “I can’t compromise on that one,” she urges. “The script needs to be amazing. It needs to be 100 percent. She is too important to me; my respect and love for her is just too important. It needs to be really brave and really honest and raw—and from my heart.” Rapace pours herself into all aspects of her career and life, from roles as villains or identical septuplets to perfume and key ring gifts for friends. There is no halfway. All considered, if Rapace eventually does tackle the role of Amy Winehouse, you can bet she’ll do it justice. The complete article can be read here.
