Alicia Vikander in Talks for 'Assassin's Creed' and New 'Bourne' Film

25 May 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Alicia Vikander has been rising the ranks, and I think we should all be grateful for that. From A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina to this year's terrific Ex Machina, she is easily one of those people who I will see whatever she is in. Well, it looks like she is entering the big-budget blockbuster mode with a couple of projects. And why wouldn't shec I want those checks too. She is in talks to join the Michael Fassbender-led adaptation of the popular video game Assassin's Creed and Matt Damon/Paul Greengrass's return to the Bourne franchise. Double-dipping. Good on ya, Alicia (we are on a first-name basis, Fyi). These being added to her schedule will most likely have her drop out of The Circle, starring Tom Hanks and to be directed by James Ponsoldt. That is disappointing because I really enjoy Ponsoldt's work, especially The Spectacular Now »

Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander in talks for Assassin's Creed and new Bourne film

24 May 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander could soon be adding two more hotly-anticipated projects to her list of starring roles.

The Swedish actress is in negotiations to star in both the film adaptation of the Ubisoft video game Assassin's Creed, as well as the forthcoming fifth Bourne film, Deadline reports.

As a result of the actress's new projects, it seems likely that Vikander will drop out of Tom Hanks-vehicle The Circle, with Emma Watson allegedly being lined up as a replacement.

In addition to Ex Machina, Vikander has previously appeared in A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina and will also star in the upcoming film The Man from Uncle alongside Henry Cavill.

Michael Fassbender previously confirmed that filming for the forthcoming Assassin's Creed movie is due to begin in September.

The actor, who is expected to both star in and produce the film, added that trying to develop the right »

New images from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

24 May 2015 4:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to the latest issue of Empire, we’ve got a batch of images from Guy Ritchie’s upcoming spy caper The Man from U.N.C.L.E, which stars Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger)…

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. The two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is set for release on August 14th, »

Alicia Vikander In Talks For The New ‘Bourne’ Film & ‘Assassin’s Creed’

23 May 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, it certainly hasn’t taken long for Swedish actress Alicia Vikander to get recognized and become one of the most sought after young actresses working today. She broke out in 2012’s “A Royal Affair” next to Mads Mikkelsen and hasn’t looked back since bagging roles immediately in Hollywood projects such as “Anna Karenina" and "The Fifth Estate." And the roles kept coming. She's already appeared in the indie sci-fi hit "Ex Machina" and "Son Of A Gun" this year, and we’ll be seeing her nonstop onscreen in 2015, including upcoming films like "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” remake this summer, "Adam Jones" alongside Bradley Cooper, and Oscar-bait vehicles such as "The Danish Girl" and "Tulip Fever,” which could garner her awards notice. It doesn’t stop there and all the hard work is paying off as more productions are lining up to leverage her talents. Deadline reports out of »

The rise of Alicia Vikander

22 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2015 has undoubtedly been Alicia Vikander’s breakthrough year with fantastic lead parts in the thought provoking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and the harrowing World War I drama Testament Of Youth, which is now available digitally and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from 25th May. However, this rise to the fore is by no means out of the blue for Vikander, who showed promise as a leading actress in A Royal Affair in 2012 and then went on to hold her own opposite the likes of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate. In this feature we take a look at the very best of Alicia Vikander.

Anna Karenina (2012)

Anna Karenina is a bold, theatrical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The film was the third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, but »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Alicia Vikander

18 May 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Vs. Magazine

Alicia Vikander is going to be huge. Heck, she’s already huge.

The beautiful Swedish actress might seem like a new face to many people, due to her recent – and downright brilliant – turn as android Ava in Alex Garland’s modern sci-fi masterpiece, Ex Machina. But Vikander has been offering up fine performances for a number of years now, as her reputation for cool, ethereal, and intelligent roles grows.

Born in Gothenburg, Sweden, Alicia Vikander first came to public attention when she appeared on a soap opera called Andra Avenyn in her native land. Her film acting debut came with Pure, and was critically praised; it led to further roles in films such as A Royal Affair opposite Mads Mikkelsen, and in Joe Wright’s adaptation of Anna Karenina.

Now, following acclaimed performances in both the adaptation of Testament of Youth and sci-fi sleeper hit Ex Machina, she »

Exclusive Interview: Alex Garland Talks Ex Machina

26 April 2015 5:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The science-fiction genre can be a hard one to embrace. As screenwriter and director Alex Garland can teach us, it is more important for the characters and ideas to resonate with the audience than the groundbreaking visual effects. Garland wrote a variety of acclaimed sci-fi films, including the zombie thriller 28 Days Later, the Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation Never Let Me Go and recent cult favorite Dredd. In all of those titles, plus his newest film – the brainy sci-fi thriller, Ex Machina – the characters trump the concept.

Ex Machina has been one of the year’s biggest art-house successes, after two weeks in limited release. It tells the story of Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a tech programmer who gets the chance to test out the new work of reclusive genius and company figurehead Nathan (Oscar Isaac). That new creation is a female A.I. named Ava (Alicia Vikander), which soon proves to be more than it seems. »

Interview with Alex Garland, writer/director of Ex Machina

24 April 2015 8:57 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Alex Garland’s résumé reads like a laundry list of recent sci-fi and horror cult hits, with screenplay credits including 28 Days Later (2002), Sunshine (2007), and Dredd (2012). His latest, Ex Machina, may stand to follow that same path of cult adoration – although hopefully for Garland, its box office will follow more in the footsteps of 28 Days Later than those of Dredd. The sparse, character-driven sci-fi film follows Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), an office drone at a major tech company who wins the opportunity to spend a week at the secluded home of his employer, Nathan (Oscar Isaac). Caleb discovers Nathan has recruited him to test the behavior of an android, Ava (Alicia Vikander), that Nathan has developed. As Nathan begins to display a more megalomaniacal side and Ava proves even more emotionally developed than expected, Caleb’s big week with the boss starts to slide unsettlingly south.

Watch: New 'Testament of Youth' Trailer Starring Kit Harrington and Alicia Vikander

24 April 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you haven't yet seen Ex Machina get out there and do so as it expands even further this weekend. Along with an overall great film you'll also get to see a great performance from Alicia Vikander whose name first came to most people's attention with A Royal Affair a couple years later, but after Ex Machina and this summer's Testament of Youth her stock is likely to continue to rise and, who knows, maybe an Oscar nomination in the near future. Today we have a new trailer for the latter film I mentioned there, Testament of Youth, a World War I feature adapted from the memoir by Vera Brittain played here by one Alicia Vikander opposite Kit Harrington ("Game of Thrones"). Here's the plot: Vera, irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown, to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she »

Alicia Vikander on Playing a Robot in 'Ex Machina'

A very deep conversation with Alex Garland about his new Sci-Fi classic 'Ex Machina'

9 April 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For a man whose directorial debut has earned almost uniformly stellar reviews, Alex Garland seems slightly pessimistic about what might come next.  It's likely because of his experiences writing "Sunshine," "Never Let Me Go" and "Dredd."  All three earned some heaping of critical praise, but either disappointed or had middling success at the box office.  "Ex Machina," which has already had success on the other side of the Atlantic, may break that trend. A contemporary science fiction thriller, "Machina" finds a young programmer, Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), dropped off at the remote estate of his company's mysterious and genius founder, Nathan (Oscar Isaac).  Caleb has won a contest at their Google-like company to spend a week with this powerful, Steve Jobs-esque figure, but he soon learns, however, that he's been recruited for a specific experiment.  Nathan has secretly been developing an artificial intelligence that "lives" within a walking and talking robotic body. »
