‘Bright’ Star Noomi Rapace Says David Ayer Has Created a ‘Complete New Universe’ That Feels Like ‘Training Day’

‘Bright’ Star Noomi Rapace Says David Ayer Has Created a ‘Complete New Universe’ That Feels Like ‘Training Day’
For his first post-“Suicide Squad” offering, director David Ayer is returning to some familiar stomping grounds — with a twist. The director’s wild new Netflix feature “Bright” hues close to Ayer’s earlier films about hardened cops and criminals duking it out on the mean streets of Los Angeles, with the addition of orcs, fairies, and elves. For Ayer, it seems that the key has been tapping into his creativity and the tough stuff that made films like “Training Day” and “End of Watch” work, at least that what his leading lady Noomi Rapace thinks, and she couldn’t be more excited about the fantastic (literally) doors the new film opened for her.

“It’s a complete new universe,” the actress said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “I read the script and I was like, ‘Oh my days, this is…I don’t…I’ve never seen this,

‘It Comes at Night’: 5 Terrifying Clues You Might Have Missed in First Full Trailer for Trey Edward Shults’ Horror Film

‘It Comes at Night’: 5 Terrifying Clues You Might Have Missed in First Full Trailer for Trey Edward Shults’ Horror Film
While the first teaser trailer for “Krisha” filmmaker Trey Edward Shults’ highly anticipated upcoming horror feature, “It Comes at Night,” played up atmosphere over plot (like any good teaser), the film’s newest full-length trailer piles on the plot details, but that doesn’t keep it from being any less intriguing.

The film stars Joel Edgerton as patriarch Paul, who has sequestered his family (including his wife, played by Carmen Ejogo, and their teen son, played by rising star Kelvin Harrison Jr.) in a secluded country house after something terrible has decimated modern civilization. When another young family (including Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough) arrives on their property, Paul makes the choice to keep them around, because what could possibly go wrong with adding more terrified people into an already on-edge situation?

Ruth Negga Reveals How Her Chemistry With Joel Edgerton Raised ‘Loving’ Beyond Melodrama — Tiff 2016
Ruth Negga employs a couple of handy metaphors when talking about her turn as Mildred Loving in Jeff Nichols’ biographical drama, “Loving,” from carrying a precious vase to safety alongside her co-star Joel Edgerton to launching off a trampoline under the guidance of Nichols. But each metaphor – thoughtfully considered and very charming, much like the Ethiopian-Irish actress herself – help drives home one single thing: The delicate, brave nature of taking on such a meaningful and important role.

Nichols’ film eschews the standard high-drama biographical movie formula, instead focusing on the more intimate aspects of the love story that would go on to change the face of marriage in America. While many Americans are at least aware of the existence of the landmark Loving v. Virginia case, few know the details – how the Lovings were ambushed and raided after their 1958 marriage, charged with a slew of crimes, forced to leave their

The James Clayton Column: in praise of Tom Hardy

In this week’s column, the release of Warrior inspires James to look back over the work of one of the UK’s finest actors, Tom Hardy

The arrival of Warrior in cinemas gives audiences a fresh chance to appreciate the awe-inspiring Tom Hardy. In my humble opinion, he deserves to be hailed as one of the most exciting actors currently working. He’s not really a household name yet, but soon will be, no doubt, which is fitting for someone who’s something of a modern day equivalent to Robert De Niro.

Warrior is intriguing for several reasons, not least because it comes highly acclaimed and promises to be a gritty drama about family issues, conflict, personal demons and fighting for a future in spite of the past. It also, in spite of a 12A certificate, offers some adrenaline pumping mixed martial arts action and cage fighting sequences. At the very least,
