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.
Noomi’s most recent feature film, “Assassin Club”, has been released in most countries on home video and on-demand by now. It’s an action flick you’ve either heard nothing about – or nothing good. Henry Golding leads as a nice-guy assassin, who is hired to kill six comptetitive colleagues to save his life and the life of his girlfriend. Noomi is featured in a dual role as one of the assassins and an Interpol gent “with a head-scratching accent that sounds like a cross between a Southern hick and a Lithuanian cabby,” according to one of the film’s scathing reviews. You can check out its streaming availability. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery.

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.

With not much happening right now (except for a new clip from “Assassin Club”, which unfortunately doesn’t serve as front page news), I spent some time revamping the press library. You can now easily browse articles by year or fast forward to some in-depth cover stories. Have a look at a selection of great covers below.
“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.
