Fantastic news for today – the theatrical trailer for the upcoming “Sherlock Holmes: A Game Shadows” has been launched and Noomi is prominently featured in it. Have a look!
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!
The “Prometheus” cast is starting to fill out with acclaimed actors including Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba. But for many, it all starts with Noomi Rapace, the leading lady in Ridley Scott’s hotly anticipated return to the science fiction genre.
Currently best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Rapace is set for the role of scientist Elizabeth Shaw, the supposed protagonist of “Prometheus.” It’s a daunting prospect for any actor who hopes to take the reins of an “Alien” spinoff from former leading lady Sigourney Weaver, but as Rapace explains it, the comparisons between Shaw and Ripley won’t last for long. “She’s definitely her own [character],” Rapace told us during a recent interview on the set of “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” adding that “Prometheus” does indeed have connections to the “Alien” series.
MTV News has published a brand new featurette on the upcoming “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”, including the first, although brief, video interview with Noomi on the set. You can stream it below.
Two video clips from the 2011 BAFTA Awards have been added to the archives – an interview with Noomi on the red carpet as well as the Leading Actress category, in which Noomi was nominated for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. Many thanks to Alvaro for forwarding the ceremony taping to me. Very much appreciated! :-) Enjoy the clips!
In 2003, Noomi guest starred on “Tusenbröder”, a very successful Swedish thriller series, led by her husband Ola Rapace as Hoffa, a bank robberer on the run. Captures have been added to the gallery.
Noomi appears briefly in the second season’s fifth episode as the nurse of an old woman, who has been killed the night before by Hoffa’s unstable partner in crime. Alongside the caps, three clips of Noomi’s scenes have been added as well. Enjoy!
ET’s Kevin Frazier is on the London set of the highly anticipated ‘Sherlock Holmes’ sequel with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Watch the video for all the action! “We said, if I remember rightly, on the last one that we had so much fun, and if everyone else would too, that if they wanted us to do more, we would – and it seems they wanted us to do more, so that’s why we’re back,” Jude tells Kevin. “It’s gone to the next level.”
Once again directed by Guy Ritchie, the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ sequel (in theaters Dec. 16) finds Robert returning as Holmes and Jude returning as Watson in turn-of-the-century London and facing their toughest adversary, Professor Moriarty, played by Jared Harris. Swedish ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ star Noomi Rapace also joins the sleuthing pair for all the action as a mysterious femme fatale. “Noomi’s fantastic,” says Robert, and Jude agrees, “Noomi’s been really good. Really, really good. [She’s] been a great addition. … You ask about who’s in good shape, I think she would kick both of our asses – she’s a tough cookie.” “She likes to fight,” concurs Robert. More buzz on the “Sherlock Holmes” sequel can be found on the Entertainment Tonight website.
Here comes an exciting video clip – the teaser trailer for the upcoming thriller “Babycall”. In its 30 seconds it gives you a great idea of the film’s chilling mood. Definately something to look forward to! “Babycall” is set to release this February in Sweden and March in Norway.
Here’s a great early Christmas present for all visitors and fans of the “Millenium” trilogy. The video archive has been updated with an excerpt of the 2009 documentary “Millenium: The Story” on the life and work of Stieg Larsson, featuring an interview with Noomi on playing Lisbeth Salander (the interview was taped during rehearsals for Medealand). Then, a making of for “The Girl Who Played with Fire” – very interesting to see how the final scene of the film was made. And finally, an on-set interview with Noomi while shooting “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”. Enjoy the new clips!
