Noomi looked absolutely stunning at last night’s premiere of “Babycall” at the International Rome Film Festival. Over 100 pictures from the red carpet have been added to the gallery – the other appearances galleries from the festival have been updated as well.
As previously reported, Noomi Rapace is in Rome these days to promote “Babycall”. Accompanied by director Pal Sletaune and co-star Kristoffer Joner, she has attended today’s photocall for the film – the premiere will take place this evening, so check back for more pictures today.
“Babycall” is one of the fifteen films in competition at this year’s Rome International Film Festival. The thriller, which premiered in Norway last week, is about a single mother who moves to a secret address to get away from her violent husband. According to ScreenDaily, Noomi Rapace will be attending to promote the film. “Babycall” premieres at the festival on October 31, 2011.
On September 13, Noomi has attended the London premiere of “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”, a spy thriller starring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Benedict Cumberbatch, and many more. 30 pictures from the premiere have been added to the gallery.
Noomi is apparently still busy shooting Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, hence the lack of news – but there was a sign of life yesterday when she attended the 13th Annual White Tie & Tiara Ball in Windsor, United Kingdom. Pictures from the event have been added to the gallery.
Big congratulations to Noomi for winning the 2011 Empire Award as Best Actress for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. She was nominated alongside Emma Watson (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One), Olivia Williams (The Ghost), Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) and this year’s Oscar winner Natalie Portman (The Black Swan). Regarding Rapace, Empire wrote, “Lisbeth Salander – the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – is already a major literary heroine, and the unusual-looking, intense Rapace (not as tiny as the girl in the books, but otherwise ideal) is liable to become an international star with this role (which she’s reprised in the two already-made follow-ups). The best Euro action heroine since Anne Parillaud’s Nikita and the most influential female thriller lead since Jodie Foster’s Clarice Starling, Lisbeth is an interesting mix of credibly screwed-up victim and resourceful superheroine – making good use of a stun-gun, a dildo, a tattoo needle and a golf club in kicking against the pricks.” Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the gallery.
Additionally, four video clips from the Empire Awards have been added to the archive, including Noomi’s speech and interviews from the red carpet and the press room. Enjoy!
