“We need you for an emergency assignment in London. We’ve got a prisoner waiting,” a CIA analyst tells expert interrogator Alice Racine (Noomi Rapace) over the phone. “I’m already on it,” a confused Alice replies. “What the hell are you talking about? We haven’t informed London station,” the analyst says. Alice’s face falls in horror — she’s been tricked into giving information to a terrorist cell.
There is the threat of a biological attack in the action flick “Unlocked,” but an unwitting Alice was brought in to interrogate a patsy and accidentally helped terrorists penetrate the CIA and the UK’s Mi-5. Suffice to say, this doesn’t make her very popular with her superior (John Malkovich), her mentor (Michael Douglas), or Mi-5 boss Emily Knowles (Toni Collette).
“I’m thinking I’m the only friend you got,” Mi-5 asset Jack Alcott (Orlando Bloom) tells Alice. And in true buddy cop movie fashion, they don’t really like each other all that much. But Alice will have to learn to work with Jack if she’s ever going to stop the attack, avoid biological warfare, and earn back the CIA’s trust.
Best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” films, Rapace’s credits also include “Prometheus,” “Rupture,” and “Passion.” You can catch her next in “What Happened to Monday?” a sci-fi dystopian thriller in which she plays septuplets. The film will premiere on Netflix sometime in August.
If you’re interested in “Unlocked,” you might want to check out the Charlize Theron vehicle “Atomic Blonde,” out July 28. Also a female-led action film, it sees protagonist Lorraine Broughton working against the clock to find out who is targeting and killing her colleagues in the Mi-6.
Trailer Watch: Noomi Rapace Tries to Prevent Biological Warfare in “Unlocked” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

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. Forced to go on the run, »
It's safe to say that Jennifer Lopez is more than aging gracefully.
The 47-year-old superstar continues to have a body that just won't quit, and in a new interview, reveals why she loves herself even more now than when she was in her 20s.
"Men in their 20s are very confident and cocky, and women are super insecure," she tells W magazine, after sharing a story about how a male co-star on Shades of Blue was uncomfortable going shirtless on set. "And then it flips: Men get super insecure, and women get comfortable in their own skin, in a way that makes them more beautiful."

It was news that concerned fans of the faltering Dceu when it was confirmed that Ben Affleck will no longer direct The Batman, which is still supposed to be released next year. This bad news about The Batman follows rumours that Justice League is a mess, as is Wonder Woman, and The Flash is getting a page-one re-write following the departure of its second director.
“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. »
