A new batch of production stills, international posters and trailer screencaptures for “Assassin Club” has been added to the photo gallery, alongside two new production stills for “Django”. After “Assassin Club” has had a rather odd early release in many Eastern European countries this January, it will receive wider releases in March, just in time for Django’s television premiere on Sky and Canal Plus.

While Ruben Östlund’s Oscar contender “Triangle of Sadness” dominated Monday night’s Guldbagge Awards – taking six trophies, including Best Film and Best Director – Adam Berg’s Netflix actioner “Black Crab”, starring Noomi Rapace and Jakob Oftebro, was the big winner in the technical categories, taking well deserved Guldbagge honors for Best Cinematography (Jonas Alarik), Best Visual Effects (Simon Sandrin), Best Set Designs (Linda Janson). “Black Crab” premiered on Netflix last March – and it’s definately worth a re-watch.
“Black Crab” is a Swedish action thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by war. During a long, harsh winter, six soldiers embark on a covert mission across a frozen archipelago, risking their lives to transport a mysterious package that could end the war. As they enter hostile enemy territory, they have no idea what dangers lie ahead or who – if anyone – they can trust. But for speed skater turned soldier Caroline Edh (Noomi Rapace), the mission is about something else entirely.
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.
Happy New Year everybody. As we are patiently waiting for the release of Sky’s “Django”, international fans can now set their calendars. The 10-part series, starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Noomi Rapace, will be released on the German Sky Q and the streaming service WOW, starting February 17 with double episodes and on Sky Atlantic on February 21, 2023. I couldn’t find a press release for Sky in the United Kingdom, but I’m pretty sure it will be released in other international territories around the same time. Here’s the official synopsis:
Loosely based on Sergio Corbucci’s cult film Django, the series is the story of a gunman in search of the truth about the massacre of his family; he will find himself fighting for an even bigger cause. Texas, late 1800s: Django is a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he’d lost. In following her trail, he 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 20-year-old daughter Sarah 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, while they must defend New Babylon against the powerful Lady of Elmdale, Elizabeth Thurman, launched on a personal quest to get rid of this community of thieves and sinners. Unbeknownst to them, all of our main characters are linked by a web of secrets and a dark past bound to resurface.
