In Cult Of Chucky, the murderous doll returns to wreak more havoc, but is the seventh film in the franchise anything to get excited about?
It might sound like a very silly thing to say, but the Child's Play franchise has always remained fairly grounded.

Despite the ludicrous central conceit - serial killer Charles Lee Ray has used a voodoo ritual to transfer his soul into a mass-marketed child’s doll; slashing ensues – Chucky hasn’t ever been to space. Y’know? We’ve never had a Chucky In The Hood. There’s no Chucky Vs Annabelle in the works (that I’m aware of). The killer doll may be utterly demented, but even during his weirder »

First summoned to life in 2009, before the riotous Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead shuffled online five years later, fans have long wondered what the future holds for Wirkola’s undead series. Turns out it’s very bright indeed, as the writer-director is already plotting Dead Snow 3.
While doing the press rounds for his Noomi Rapace-starring Netflix sci-fi thriller, What Happened to Monday – similar to Orphan Black, it has the Swedish actor play multiple roles for an intense, mind-bending thrill ride – Tommy Wirkola sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the immediate future of Dead Snow, revealing that he hopes to begin shooting a third film “in a few years” replete with zombie Hitler.

You might not know Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola's name by heart, but you've probably heard of some of the film’s he’s been a part of, such as the fun and gory Dead Snow films about Nazi zombies, as well as the way better than it had any right to be Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.

With all of the talk of the alt-right movement and Nazis in the news, director Tommy Wirkola may have coincidentally picked the perfect time to announce one of his next movies. What better way to handle such a thing than the third installment of a franchise that sees humans fighting Nazi zombies? That's right. Wirkola has announced that he fully intends to make Dead Snow 3, and it is going to feature a zombie Hitler.
The Norwegian filmmaker is currently promoting his latest movie, the sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday, which recently dropped on Netflix. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Tommy Wirkola revealed that Dead Snow 3 is definitely in the cards, but it won't happen for a few years. After two previous movies showcasing Nazi zombies, he feels it's finally time to bring out the big guns and thaw out Adolf Hitler in zombie form. Here's what he had to say about it. »
Sing it with me now! "I'm dreaming of a reich Christmas. Just like the ones I used to know." By a show of hands, who remembers director Tommy Wirkola's zombie horror film Dead Snow?

Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola won the hearts of gorehounds the world over back in 2009 with Dead Snow, a Nazi zombie film that was a whole hell of a lot of bloody fun. Wirkola followed up the film with sequel Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead in 2014, and now another is on the way! While […] »

“What Happened to Monday” is as much a title as it is a question about itself. Directed by Tommy Wirkola (“Dead Snow,” “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”), the Netflix original production lands somewhere in a creative middle ground. Part fugitives-on-the-run thriller, part post-apocalyptic familial drama, Wirkola’s latest is a perplexing amalgamation. Its identity is the absence of one. Set in a not too distant future where families are limited to one child, due to overpopulation, the story opens on the Settman household. After the passing of their father, Terence Settman (Willem Dafoe), a family of seven sisters (all played by. »

Tommy Wirkola, the man who brought us such genre gems as Dead Snow and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, is back with a brand new Netflix sci-fi thriller called What Happened to Monday, starring Noomi Rapace. Told in the vein of a 1990s Paul Verhoeven movie, this film is set in a futuristic world where […] »

Aside from his latest film What Happened to Monday hitting Netflix today, Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola says he’s been busy the past six months working on a variety of projects – mainly, preparing Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters for the small screen. “I had an idea for the sequel story so I wrote the […] »

Editor’s Note: This article is presented in partnership with Netflix’s original film “What Happened to Monday?” – now streaming on Netflix.
Although he’s best known to American audiences for his funny and gruesome spins on old-fashioned fairy tales that follow characters as wide-ranging as zombie Nazis (“Dead Snow”) and candy-seeking children (“Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”), Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola has some other tricks up his sleeve. With his “What Happened to Monday?,” Wirkola tackles high-concept sci-fi, thanks to an ambitious story that follows seven identical sisters (all played by Noomi Rapace) trapped in a future society that only allows just one child per household.
In the film, each sister is assigned a day of the week – and a matching name – in which they’re allowed out of their apartment (and the watchful eye of their surrogate dad, played by Willem Dafoe) for a little slice of living. »

In the sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday, Prometheus‘ Noomi Rapace plays seven twin sisters, who are named after the days of the week. Monday goes missing. Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters‘ Tommy Wirkola directed the feature, which will put Rapace’s acting prowess on display, as she gets to play seven different roles. Netflix will be releasing the […] »

Noomi Rapace proved her action bonafides as the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but nothing in her badass career features the range on display in “What Happened to Monday” While Tommy Wirkola’s cheesy B-movie plays like outtakes from “Orphan Black” shot on leftover sets from “The Hunger Games,” Rapace throws herself into the zany challenge at hand. Simply put, she plays seven twin sisters in a dystopian society that finds them battling for survival against murky government forces; even as the movie sags into clichés, she remains its enticing centerpiece, shifting from one character to the next, often within the confines of an action-packed scene. She can’t save the movie from mediocrity, but the gimmick of her performance at least injects it with a recurring source of fascination.
“What Happened to Monday” poses its main question in the title, but the other days of the week are implicated as well. »

There are multiple Noomi Rapaces in the forthcoming sci-fi thriller, What Happened To Monday. Here's the new trailer...
If the sci-fi thriller What Happened To Monday had come out in the 80s, its trailer would have written itself. "In a world... where having more than one child is banned... one couple dared to have septuplets..." (You have to imagine all that read out in the gruff voice of 80s Trailer Voiceover Guy, Don Lafontaine).

Whatever Happened To Monday is the latest in a bewildering line of films and TV shows funded by Netflix, and it looks like a lot of fun. It's set in a gloomy future where, yes, it's illegal »
Earlier this year, director Tommy Wirkola's latest film (he of Dead Snow fame) Seven Sisters premiered in France to fairly positive reviews. The sci-fi thriller stars Noomi Rapace who continues to star in interesting thrillers - even if they don't always pan out - as septuplets born in a near future where overpopulation has become such a huge problem that a one-child-per-family policy has been introduced and is strictly enforced.
The seven sisters alternate sharing a public identity, each going out on the day of the week that corresponds with their name. One day, Monday doesn't come home and the other sisters come up with a plan to save her.
The project was picked up by Netflix [Continued ...] »
If you’re fan of Noomi Rapace then “What Happened To Monday” will be right up your alley. The actress takes on seven roles in the upcoming sci-fi film, which faces a dystopian future in which overpopulation is just the start of the world’s problems.
Willem Dafoe and Glenn Close co-star in the latest from director Tommy Wirkola (“Dead Snow,” “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters“) which tells the story of a man who teaches his seven granddaughters how to evade the authorities who have instituted a “One Child Policy,” but one day, one of them disappears.

What Happened to Monday is the latest Netflix original film, which premieres on the service on August 18th. Starring Noomi Rapace, Glenn Close and Willem Dafoe, this sci-fi tale comes from director Tommy Wirkola, the genius behind Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and the Dead Snow movies; and writers Max Botkin (Robosapien) and Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross). With the film due next month we have you first look at the new trailer and poster for the film…
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them – Monday, »

The summer movie season may start winding down by early August, but for cinephiles, that’s when the real fun begins. While the fall season festivals — epitomized by the trio of awards season influencers Telluride, Toronto and New York — are a massive platform for major prestige titles at the end of the year, the Locarno Film Festival has the jump on all of them, and provides the most diverse range of cinema you’ll see anywhere in the world.
The 70th edition, announced this week, provides the latest example. No festival embodies the “something for everyone” philosophy better than Locarno, which complements its cinephile-oriented sections with another one exclusively designed for wider audiences. That would be the Piazza Grande, where 16 features screen outdoors for an audience of 8,000 people. But rather than simply showcasing the same summer blockbusters that have dominated the box office, the Piazza features international efforts well suited to pleasing massive crowds, »
