Welcome to Noomi Rapace Online, your premiere web resource on the Swedish actress. Best known for her performances as Lisbeth Salander in the original "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" film trilogy, "Prometheus" and the recent Indie smash "Lamb", Noomi Rapace has emerged as one of the most exciting European actresses of this decade. This unofficial fansite provides you with all latest news, photos, editorials and video clips on her past and present work. Enjoy your stay and check back soon.
Fox Searchlight has released the theatrical trailer for “The Drop”, starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini in his final film. Directed by “Bullhead” filmmaker Michael Roskam, “The Drop” follows an ex-con trying to go straight, working a legit job in a bar, whose life gets upended by a robbery gone wrong. It’s potent stuff, particularly for this Brooklyn-set tale, and Roskam knew he had a great duo in Hardy and Gandolfini, according to a recent article by USA Today. “I could see there was a bit of a smile between them. It was like, ‘We’re going to nail this, right?’ ” Roskam said of the production. “And they did this intense scene and were just spot on. There was a beautiful connection between those two guys.” You can watch the trailer in the video archive, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
It’s been a while since the video archive has received some proper care, so today’s update will surely make up it with that. Eighteen new clips have been added, ranging from Noomi’s 2009/2010 promotion for the “Millennium” trilogy around the world, various public appearances to a couple of “Prometheus” screen tests and a recent appearance at the Apple SoHo Store’s “Meet the Filmmakers” series for “Dead Man Down”.

Many of today’s great actors have made their first steps on soap operas – and Noomi makes no exception. Back in 1996, when she still went by her birth name Noomi Norén, the 17-year-old had her first professional job on the Swedish soap “Tre Kronor”, playing troublemaking runaway Lucinda Gonzales. She appeared throughout the show’s sixth season before her character was reunited with her parents. I’ve added clips from all of Noomi’s twelve episodes to the video archive. Enjoy watching.
Today, the US trailer for “Passion” has been released – exactly the one shown by Entertainment Tonight two days ago. Additionally, I’ve added three clips from the film to the video archive. Two scenes feature Isabelle (Noomi) and her boss Christine (Rachel McAdams). The third clip sheds some light on Isabelle’s relationship with her assistant Dani (Karoline Herfurth). The clips are all rather brief, but worth to get you in the mood for the film’s August 30 release in the USA (it will release theatrically and on VOD). In case you can play R2 DVDs, you can also get French release of the DVD and Blu-Ray over at Amazon.
Yesterday, Entertainment Tonight has premiered the US trailer for “Passion”. It differs from the international trailer we already know – and beware that it’s even more spoilerish, for those who haven’t seen the original (or the remake’s international release). Many thanks to Lindsey for the heads-up! Alongside the trailer, which will surely be launched in full these coming days, a couple of new stills and on-set pictures from the film have been added as well, according to “Passion”‘s official Facebook site.
A six minutes featurette on “Passion” has been released, including interviews with Brian DePalma, Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace and Karoline Herfurth, and featuring lots of scenes from the film throughout. Please be aware that the scenes might contain spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the original film, be warned :-) Many thanks to Lindsey for the heads-up.
Lots of new video clips for “Dead Man Down”, which releases US theaters this Friday, have been added to the video archive. The new additions include compilations of promotional interviews, the Los Angeles premiere, two clips as well as a new Red Band trailer. To watch the new clips, simply click one of the previews below.
The media promotion for “Dead Man Down”s early March release continues with a new still, a clip featuring Noomi Rapace and Colin Farrell and a new featurette, focusing on Noomi and her character. A new still of “Passion” has been added as well. Many thanks to Marina for the heads-up.
The promotion for “Dead Man Down” is winning speed with a newly launched featurette on the making of the film, including interviews with director Niels Arden Oplev and actors Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace and Terrence Howard. You can watch the complete featurette in the video archive.
The previously leaked pre-sales trailer for “Dead Man Down” is indeed the theatrical trailer for the film’s March 8, 2013, release. Now, it has been launched in great HD quality and can be viewed in the video archive. HD captures as well as a first production still have been added to the gallery as well.
Collin Farrell stars as Victor, a New York crime lord’s right-hand-man, who is seeking vengeance on his boss, whom is responsible for the death of his family. Meanwhile Beatrice (Rapace), a victim of Victor’s boss, is seeking revenge and enlists Victor’s help. “Revenge. I’ve never thought about it before. But when I saw you, I knew I had my answer,” Beatrice says in the trailer. It seems she has videotaped Victor committing a murder, and uses this leverage – as well as her powers of seduction – to force him to help her. From FilmDistrict, Dead Man Down also stars Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard. It’s slated for a March 8, 2013 release.
