Emma Watson can’t escape Mikael Nyqvist’s grip in 'Colonia' first look

27 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fresh off his bloody beating in Keanu Reeves’ gun-fu action movie “John Wick,” Deadline announced that Mikael Nyqvist has joined the cast of Florian Gallenberger's directorial debut “Colonia.” With the announcement comes the first still to make its way off the active set, a rather creepy glimpse at Emma Watson’s next role. Breathe, “Harry Potter” Tumblr contingent! It’s just a movie. As reported last month, Watson and Daniel Brühl star as a young German couple who find themselves swept up in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Abducted by When Pinochet’s secret police abduct Daniel (Brühl), Lena (Watson) follows his trail to “Colonia Dignidad,” a charitable mission run by a lay preacher (Nyqvist). Or she thinks it’s a charitable. Turns out the sealed-off village is part prison, part cult commune. No one who enters leaves. Thus, the face-holding in the still above. Gallenberger makes the jump »

Noomi Rapace Has A Great Idea For Who The Villains Should Be In Prometheus 2

24 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

At the end of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, Noomi Rapace's character of Elizabeth Shaw finally got to meet one of the Engineers that created her and the rest of humanity. The only trouble with that meeting was that it turned out the gods who created us wanted to take us out of this universe just as quickly, and had the weapons to do so. After a climactic battle that eventually created the Xenomorphs from the Alien series, we were left with Shaw and David (or what's left of him) heading off to find more of the answers that she's been searching for. Despite Ridley Scott ruling out the Xenomorphs as being the villains in Prometheus 2, Noomi Rapace revealed in an MTV UK interview to promote The Drop that her idea for the next villains in the biological/theological sci-fi franchise are probably the biggest options available. God maybe. »

Noomi Rapace Discusses Prometheus 2 Storyline

24 October 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Last month, director Ridley Scott revealed that the Xenomorph creature from the original "Alien" films will not appear in the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel. Now, in a new interview with MTV, Noomi Rapace spoke about where the follow-up is headed. "I know Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one," she explained. "I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, she wants to know, and I feel like I'm sharing her curiosity, but also anger." Since the film won't have Xenomorphs, what else can the characters run into? "God, maybe? God or Devil, I don't know," Rapace continued. »

Rapace Talks "Prometheus" Sequel Progress

24 October 2014 1:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Ridley Scott confirming last month that the xenomorphs from the original "Alien" films won't be showing up in the "Prometheus" sequel, questions have quickly arisen as to what we will see in the new film.

We do know the film will see the return of Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw and potentially Michael Fassbender as the head of the android David. Rapace was asked about the sequel recently by MTV UK and offered her thoughts on where her character might go:

"Well, I know Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, »

'Prometheus 2': Noomi Rapace Talks New Villains and Story Ideas

23 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Ridley Scott revealed that the classic Xenomorph creatures from his original Alien franchise will not be present in his highly-anticipated follow-up Prometheus 2. This news had many fans wondering who (or what) will be the primary villain in this upcoming sequel, which is currently being written. That report also revealed that Noomi Rapace will return as Elizabeth Shaw, and the actress recently offered her thoughts about where she hopes the sequel is heading, in an interview with MTV UK.

"Well, I know Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really.

21 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having played very well to the audience at the London Film Festival, The Drop is set to open in the UK on November 14th and we have a new clip from the film. The Drop is directed by Belgian filmmaker Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead) and screenwriter Dennis Lehane (author of Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone), which stars Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) alongside the late James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) in his final screen role.

Check out the clip below and let Bob Saginowski (Hardy) explain how the the drop system works in Brooklyn.

The Drop is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of Bullhead.  Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funnelling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. »

Noomi Rapace says God could be the baddie in Prometheus 2

20 October 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Ridley Scott gave an update on the status of Prometheus 2, during which he stated that the iconic Xenomorph from his 1979 sci-fi classic Alien was “cooked” and would be absent from the next film as he continues to take the series in another direction. Now Prometheus star Noomi Rapace has shared her thoughts on who could be the antagonist of the follow-up, telling MTV News that:

“God, maybe? Or the devil? I don’t know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can’t wait to go there. I don’t know what we’re going to discover. Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can’t go to earth, there’s nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where [the Engineers] came from. She wants answers, she wants to know. I feel like I’m sharing her curiosity, but also her anger.”

Noomi Rapace: 'God could be the villain in Prometheus 2'

17 October 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Noomi Rapace has spoken about Ridley Scott's upcoming Prometheus sequel.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress, who played Elizabeth Shaw in the 2012 sci-fi, discussed the nature of the villains in the forthcoming sequel, after it was revealed that the iconic xenomorph aliens would not be appearing.

When asked by MTV News about who the follow-up's antagonist could be, Rapace replied: "God, maybe? Or the devil? I don't know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can't wait to go there. I don't know what we're going to discover."

Scott has previously said that he is retiring Hr Giger's classic Alien design for the sequel.

2012's Prometheus revealed the origin of the xenomorph aliens.

Rapace continued to say of the next instalment: "Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can't go to earth, there's nothing left for her there really.

[Comic Execution] 10/17 – Prometheus, The Evil Within, The Storyteller

17 October 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

The playlist to tonight’s column? Revocation‘s new brutal thrash metal masterpiece “Deathless.” Landing right smack in the middle of October, I have to mention how much energy this record instills in me. The thing about “Deathless” is that it marks an absolute highwater mark for Revocation, nailing the insanely technical flair they were previously known for while stepping up the songwriting a full notch, producing some of their most intense, melodic and catchy work since their inception. This isn’t a review because I’m a casual metal fan and that’s why I mention this album; outside a Dethklok album (or maybe High On Fire), “Deathless” truly embodies the best that modern metal has to offer. Listening to it is akin to snorting a line of demon cocaine off the butt of Satan itself.

So if this week’s column seems a little more aggressive than usual, »

Noomi Rapace Discusses Which Villains We Can Expect In Prometheus 2

16 October 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once Ridley Scott wraps up the final touches to his epic, Exodus: Gods And Kings, he’ll be turning his attention to The Martian. It’s to be expected, as that’s his next slated project and one that’s gathering steam at an alarming rate. However, if you were to ask any fan of the director which of his upcoming titles they’re most looking forward to, you’ll likely be presented with two options: Blade Runner 2 or Prometheus 2. The latter of which is still some ways off, but is never out of the news due to a massive amount of interest in the sci-fi sequel.

Scott threw a damp squib into proceedings last month when he announced flat out that there’d be absolutely No xenomorphs in the movie. After this particular writer finally stopped blubbing, it became clear that the move is to distinguish the follow-up »

Brian de Palma’s Passion: Costume as Contemporary Hitchcock

16 October 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Director Brian De Palma has made movies heavily influenced by Alfred Hitchcock before, but Passion (2012) is the first one whose characters look like they stepped out of one of Hitchcock’s classic films.

Karen Muller-Serreau’s bold and colourful costumes communicate the characters’ hidden desires and make watching Passion a sensory experience. This melodrama centres on two ad executives, Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) and her boss Christine (Rachel McAdams), who have a deadline to come up with an ad campaign for a new smartphone. In her sleep, Isabelle thinks of a great idea.

Dirk (Paul Anderson) in typical pinstriped suit with Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) in even more typical black.

The two other principal characters are Isabelle’s assistant Dani (Karoline Herfurth) and Christine’s boyfriend Dirk (Paul Anderson) who get tangled in the twists and turns of Christine and Isabelle’s relationship. Dani is an angel-faced redhead who is in unrequited love with her boss Isabelle, »

Noomi Rapace has been discussing Prometheus 2, and has hinted at the new villains we can expect to see in the forthcoming sequel. With Ridley Scott having recently suggested the Xenomorphs won’t feature next time around, it remains to be seen what form the chief antagonists of the new film will take, although Rapace has a couple of big ideas… “God?” she suggests in an interview with MTV. “Or the Devil?

The Drop review - BFI London Film Festival 2014

15 October 2014 4:13 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Michaël R. Roskam; Screenwriter: Dennis Lehane; Starring: Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace; Running time: 106 mins; Certificate: 15

The Drop sees our hopes plummet to the ground with a resounding thud, squandering the brilliant Tom Hardy and much-missed James Gandolfini with a poorly contrived tale that's often alienating to watch.

Hardy plays melancholic bartender Bob Saginowski in this crime drama set in Brooklyn. We know the film really wants us to like him because he helps an old lady right at the start, goes to church to worship in the next scene, followed by rescuing a beaten puppy from a rubbish bin shortly after. Conversely, such exposed plot mechanics do little to make Bob endearing.

Before long, Bob's entangled in a friendship with Nadia (Noomi Rapace), who helped him look after the dog – but has to contend with a robbery at Marv's (Gandolfini) bar, which serves as a drop-off point for criminals to launder money. »

London Film Festival 2014: The Drop Gala

11 October 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Saturday saw the BFI London Film Festival gala for The Drop, adapted from a Dennis Lehane novel and starring Tom Hardy as a bartender in a Brooklyn club often used for the transfer of dirty money. He meets Nadia (Noomi Rapace) by chance after discovering an injured dog in her trash can. It also features the last screen performance from the late James Gandolfini.Rapace praised director Michaël Roskam, comparing his work to Ridley Scott, with whom she worked on Prometheus. She said, “Ridley Scott started with art school and Michaël did the same thing. They have the same sort of approach, like they’re drawing big pictures and then they put you into it and you’re supposed to live in that world.”Lehane’s novels have been adapted for the big screen several times before, most famously in Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and Ben Affleck thriller Gone Baby Gone. »

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the TV shows that refuse to die. But we neglected to mention the positively jurassic Never Mind The Buzzcocks, which began its 28th series last night (it debuted way back in 1996, when jokes about rockers getting blowjobs from groupies were apparently still funny). After years of guest presenters, the programme has finally settled on a permanent host. And surprise surprise, its another waspish, middle-aged white bloke.

To be fair, the bespoke opening sequence about Rhod Gilberts first day on the job was mildly amusing.

Watch: Noomi Rapace Gets Sculpted In Short Film Featuring Score By Flying Lotus

29 September 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

She was the original screen incarnation of Lisbeth Salander, took us to alien worlds in "Prometheus." She's currently in theaters hanging with Tom Hardy and a puppy in "The Drop," and now Noomi Rapace is flexing her art cinema muscles. Directed by by British artist and designer Aitor Throup, "A Portrait of Noomi Rapace" is pretty much exactly that. The sorta meta-ish nine-minute movie explores the actor's process by literally sculpting her. Metaphors! Meanwhile, a score featuring new music by electronic musician Flying Lotus adds to the atmosphere. Check it all out below. [Nowness] »
