13 February 2017 9:07 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel here since our fashion expert Jose Solis is unavailable to share his red carpet expertise. Argh! Unlike Jose I cannot tell you who these actresses are wearing -- my gawking is strictly actress-focused. But have I ever told you about my favorite "category" on red carpets? It's "Actresses Who Show up in Costumes as Fictional Characters Nobody Has Invented Yet" which is just what Noomi Rapace and Anya Taylor Joy did at this weekend's BAFTAs! 

Boldest: Noomi & Anya

What kind of fictional characters are these? Please help me write those character profiles in the comments won't you? More gowns from superstars like Emma Stone, Penélope Cruz, and Nicole Kidman follow after the jump »

‘Unlocked’ Trailer: Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom Go Full Jack Bauer

12 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Unlocked was originally conceived over a decade ago – the trailer feels like something we’d be seeing in theaters around 2004 or so, at the height of Hollywood’s attempt to come to grips with the events of September 11, 2001. You have a heroic CIA interrogator (which has become […]

Trailer & poster for action thriller ‘Unlocked’

11 February 2017 2:25 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Lionsgate have released the first poster and trailer for the upcoming action thriller Unlocked, which comes from director Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Gorillas in the Mist) and stars Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, Toni Collette, John Malkovich, and Michael Douglas.

Once one of the CIA’s top interrogators, Alice Racine’s (Rapace) career was sidelined when she failed “to unlock” a prisoner in time to save the lives of dozens of innocent people from a terrorist attack in Paris. Now leading a quiet life in London as a caseworker, Alice is unexpectedly called back into action when the CIA apprehends a suspect believed to have direct knowledge of another imminent attack.

Lionsgate will released Unlocked on May 5th.

Richard Linklater, Sam Rockwell and More Join Ethan Hawke’s Music Biopic ‘Blaze’

10 February 2017 3:08 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ethan Hawke’s upcoming film, “Blaze,” has just added a number of actors to its already impressive lineup, including “Boyhood” director himself Richard Linklater. Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn, Wyatt Russell, Kris Kristofferson and Hawke will be joining Ben Dickey, Alia Shawkat, Sybil Rosen, Charlie Sexton, and Josh Hamilton in the music biopic based on singer and songwriter Blaze Foley.

Co-written, produced and directed by Hawke, the film is based on Sybil Rosen’s memoir ‘Living in the Woods in a Tree.’ It follows the life of the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas Outlaw Music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. Dickey will star as the musician, Shawkat plays Rosen and Rosen portrays her own mother.

Rosen, who co-wrote the film with Hawke, was Blaze’s real, life-long love and their passionate affair is said to form the narrative spine of the film.

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom star in trailer for Unlocked

10 February 2017 7:58 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom enter the world of high octane violence movies with the brand new trailer for Unlocked, an action thriller centred on Rapace, terrorists and Bloom, who, from what we can gather, just tags along for the ride.

Related: Noomi Rapace Interview on The Drop

The trailer for Unlocked, has no thrills, airs or graces and quite frankly looks like a run of the mill action film with a badass female having to save the day all the whilst fighting off highly trained men in an effort to get the terrorist back to London? We’ve all seen Rapace in full blown action, Orlando Bloom – in a role that isn’t at all clear – just seems to have wanted to associate his name with an action film, maybe to get it back on track? Who knows but the proof will be in the pudding as they say. »

Action stars come out of nowhere all the time, and as long as they can kick some ass they will be welcomed with open arms.

First Official Trailer for CIA Thriller 'Unlocked' Starring Noomi Rapace

9 February 2017 5:57 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We need your skill set. We need you back on the frontline." An official UK trailer has debuted for the CIA thriller titled Unlocked, from veteran English director Michael Apted. Swedish actress Noomi Rapace stars in this as a CIA interrogator who is lured into a ruse that puts London at risk of a big biological attack. Orlando Bloom also co-stars as an MI5 agent she works with to help figure out what's going on. The full cast also includes Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, Akshay Kumar, and John Malkovich. This looks like it has some solid action, along with intriguing espionage twists, but I'm not expecting it to be that great. It gets badass when Noomi busts her way out with two silenced pistols, but that seems to be only one scene. Here's the first official trailer (+ UK poster) for Michael Apted's Unlocked, originally from Empire: Noomi Rapace stars »

Unlocked trailer, starring Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom

9 February 2017 1:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Feb 10, 2017

The trailer for terrorism-teeming thriller Unlocked teams CIA agent Noomi Rapace and MI5 agent Orlando Bloom.

The upcoming action thriller Unlocked will soon arrive as a surprisingly low-key affair, especially considering the rather impressive cast it brings. While the film industry has collectively pumped out more than its share of post-9/11 dramas filled with nightmarish scenarios in which the threat of wanton Western destruction is on the table, Unlocked seems to throw in a pinch of the conspiracy thriller genre, with an oil-and-water partnership.

The debut trailer for Unlocked showcases a slick, fast-paced suspenseful affair starring a CIA operative played by Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, the original Swedish The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), who, after the interrogation of a captured terrorist underling, comes upon crucial information about a biological attack on London that suddenly makes her a target from ersatz agents working for the terrorists.

Noomi Rapace Hunts For A Terrorist In First Trailer For ‘Unlocked’

9 February 2017 9:36 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given the state of the world right now, and the rhetoric coming from a certain statesman, I’m not sure I’m in the mood for a B-movie thriller about terrorists. But if you’re feeling like you could use some imaginary geo-political intrigue rather than whatever is going on in reality, then “Unlocked” might fit the bill.

Certainly, the cast is pretty good with Noomi Rapace, Orlando BloomMichael Douglas, Toni Collette, and John Malkovich starring in the story that follows a CIA operative who gets compromised and has to fight to discover the truth.

Super Bowl: What Killer Movie Trailers Should We Expect During This Year's Game?

30 January 2017 4:44 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Even though I will always be a Dallas Cowboys' fan at heart (don't hate -- we have had a rough run for 20+ years), my hometown is actually Atlanta, Georgia and I was ecstatic when the Falcons beat the Packers, pulling out the Aaron Rodgers thorn I have had in my side for a number of years. But, as much as I would like to give you more of my hot sports opinions, we at Lrm are an entertainment site, and today we shall take a look at another great pastime during February each year; Superbowl commercials that feature upcoming films.

Much like the decline of the ancient Roman gladiators, the ratings for the NFL have recently gone into a nosedive as well. However, this has not yet affected the price of advertising too much for the much beloved Superbowl commercials, and even though viewership last year was down around 6% from »

Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace join kidnap thriller Stockholm

29 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has revealed that Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace have joined the cast of Stockholm, a new thriller which will reunite Hawke with his Born to Be Blue writer-director Robert Budreau.

The film will tell the true story of the 1973 Stockholm bank heist and hostage crisis, which gave rise to the psychological phenomenon Stockholm syndrome, as the hostages bonded with their captors and turned against the authorities. The situation was documented in 1974 in the New Yorker article ‘The Bank Drama’ by Daniel Lang.

Ethan Hawke was last seen in The Magnificent Seven, and will next appear in Luc Besson’s hotly-anticipated sci-fi Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, while Rapace is set to reprise her Prometheus role of Elizabeth Shaw for a cameo in Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, and is currently shooting the David Ayer-directed sci-fi fantasy Bright alongside Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. »

James Cameron on the Alien franchise and Alien: Covenant

29 January 2017 3:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week it was announced that James Cameron is returning to the Terminator series to “godfather” a reboot from Deadpool helmer Tim Miller, and now speaking to Vulture, the filmmaker has been chatting about the Alien franchise, and whether he has any interest in it going forward.

“The franchise has kind of wandered all over the map,” said Cameron. “Ridley Scott did the first film, and he inspired an entire generation of filmmakers and science-fiction fans with that one movie and there have been so many films that stylistically have derived from it, including my own Aliens, which was the legitimate sequel and, I think, the proper heir to his film. I sort of did it as a fanboy. I wanted to honor his film but also say what I needed to say. After that, I don’t take any responsibility.”

“I don’t think it’s worked out terribly well, »
