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.

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.
Among Noomi’s upcoming projects in the action thriller “Assassin Club”, in which she plays Falk, one of seven contract killers hired to kill one of their own. While there have been no news on the film since its 2021 filming in Italy – out of the blue there are now a first trailer, pictures – and a release date IN THREE WEEKS for most Eastern European countries, including Bosnia (titled “Klub Ubica”) and Slovenia (titled “Klub Morilcev”). IMDb lists an April 14 release date for the United Kingdom, so I assume more dates will follow for a release in th Spring. The trailer, which looks… well, a bit odd, can be found below.
When assassin Morgan Gaines (Henry Golding) is offered a contract to kill seven people, he quickly discovers that his targets are also assassins contracted to kill him. The only way out of the situation is to leave a trail of corpses and find the genius who set the trap for them. Morgan sets out to hunt down the humans, one by one. Meanwhile, the assassins settle on Sophie (Daniela Melchior), Morgan’s love interest. They use her as a pawn in their deadly game, forcing Morgan to make an impossible sacrifice: the only way to save her life is to lose his own.

I hope you have all enjoyed “Black Crab” on Netflix. I found it to be the almost perfect film – the first two thirds of Adam Berg’s (unfortunately not so fictional war thriller) were brilliant with outstanding cinematography and great acting – the final act fell back a little bit and closed as a rather generic action flick. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it very much and rank it among Noomi’s best films. A week after its release, Netflix has released a couple new videos for the film – including a “Rate That Wig” segment which can only serve as a tribute to the horrible corkscrew wig she wore in the film, and there’s an additional press junket interview which you can all find below.
On Friday, Noomi Rapace was interviewed on the Swedish programme Nyhetsmorgon, promoting both the theatrical release of “Lamb” in Sweden and the global release of “Black Crab” on Netflix this Friday. Unfortunately, the video can only be watched within Sweden, so if you’re among the lucky ones, enjoy the interview. Edit: Noomi was also interviewed on today’s Kulturnyheterna. The clip can be found in the video archive with screencaptures being added to the photo gallery.
Focus Features has released a second theatrical trailer for Goran Stolevski’s Sundance hit “You Won’t Be Alone”, which has emerged and a critical darling so far and is set to release US theatres on April 01, 2022. A new production stills and screencaptures from the trailer have been added as well.
With director Adam Berg’s Black Crab arriving on Netflix March 18, Collider has exclusively premiered the first trailerfrom the Noomi Rapace film. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the Swedish action thriller follows six soldiers sent on a covert mission to transport a mysterious package across a frozen archipelago without knowing what dangers lie ahead or who they can trust. The cast is stacked, alongside Rapace is Jakob Oftebro, Erik Enge, Dar Salim, Ardalan Esmaili, Aliette Opheim, and David Dencik. Malin Idevall and Mattias Montero are producing the film with Rapace, Christopher Granier-Deferre, Berg, Emil Wiklund, and Kim Magnusson serving as executive producers. Black Crab was written by Berg and Pelle Rådström and it’s based on the novel of the same name from Jerker Virdborg. The first look images show Rapace on the frozen archipelago with her team as they begin operation Black Crab, something she labels as a “suicide mission” in the trailer. And we continue to see a series of darker images showing the team planning to make their journey to transport a package across the archipelago to try and end this war that they’re in.
