Noomi Rapace

  1. Noomi Rapace Will Play Septuplets In New Dystopia Film

    There Can Be Only One

    Tatiana Maslany, the gauntlet has been thrown. Noomi Rapace, Swedish actress of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo fame, has been cast to play seven different sisters in a sci-fi film called Whatever Happened To Monday?

  2. Wally Pfister’s Transcendence, Starring Johnny Depp, Is Looking More Awesome By the Minute

    DO WANT

    We're getting a surprising amount of information about the plot of the upcoming Johnny Depp-starring sci-fi flick Transcendence, considering it's executive produced by the notoriously secretive Christopher Nolan and directed by Wally Pfister, a frequent collaborator of his. I remember that people were scratching their heads at what the heck Inception would be about even after the trailer was released. But courtesy of The Wrap, we now have a basic plot for the film… and it looks awesome. Beware: If you consider basic plot information for a film that may undergo substantial revisions by the time it makes its way to your eyeballs spoilers, don't click the jump, as they are unmarked. You've been warned.

  3. Transcendence Is Shaping Up to Be a Nerd’s Dream Come True

    Cautiously Optimistic

    There's not much info out there on the upcoming big-budget sci-fi film Transcendence, the directorial debut of frequent Christopher Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister. That's not surprising, really, given it's being executive produced by Nolan, who's famously tight-lipped about his own projects. It's like he and Pfister, who's shot every one of Nolan's films since 2000's Memento, have a bro code of secrecy. But while Nolan or Pfister probably won't give too much away any time soon—except that it's about "a man who creates a computer that develops a malevolent awareness"—some bits of casting news have come out over the past few days that have been enough to make my nerd heart grow three sizes.

  4. Which Scene in Prometheus Tipped the Movie Into an R-Rating?

    It Came From Outer Space

    There's a good part of me that wishes that somehow I could watch Prometheus and have it all be like this picture or even this picture and still get the experience of watching Prometheus. Instead, I'm going to wait for the home video release, probably have a drink beforehand, and keep my finger on the pause button. Because I actually do want to watch Prometheus, as it was cut. There's an interesting story out from the LA Times, however, that's about one pretty significant cut that Ridley Scott was asked to make from Prometheus, apparently the only thing in the movie that stood between it and a PG-13 rating instead of the box-office killing R. If you've already seen the movie, you've probably already guessed which one it is, and if you haven't... well, HUGE SPOILERS below.

  5. Gods, Monsters, and Viewer Expectations Battle in Prometheus

    Essay

    As director or audience member, it's difficult to approach a property with as much expectation built around it as the Alien series. In the 33 years since the first Alien film came out, both it and its sequels (of debatable quality) have spawned a library's worth of critical analysis and design homages. Not to mention, it's generated a lot of fan attachment. I am hardly exempt from this baggage train, considering that the original 1979 Alien is not only one of my favorite sci-fi movies, but one of my favorite movies, period. As you might have guessed, this doesn't mean I'm unwilling to call a spade a spade. Or, as is more apt in this case; a near-xenomorphic-mess is still a near-xenomorphic-mess. Unlike his Robin Hood-turned-Republican-allegory, Ridley Scott's Prometheus is by contrast daringly liberal, atheistic, and, dare I say it, pro-choice. This modern vehicle is an existential space horror flick packed with body horror, dazzling imagination, and little rational sense. Like the molecular structure of the self-sacrificing Space Jockey that kicks off the puzzling proceedings, the longer you watch Prometheus, the more it comes apart. It should go without saying, but this entire discussion is rife with spoilers, start to finish. It's a "discussion," rather than a "review," because I figure if you care about spoilers you won't read this until you've seen it. Even so, you've been warned, and in bold and italics, no less.

  6. Why Is Prometheus Not Here Yet?! Here’s A Noomi Rapace Video To Tide You Over.

    Clever Girl

    Yes, I know, Prometheus isn't here yet because it's not June 8, but don't pretend you don't know what I mean, Alien fans! I'll be honest, I've been a little overwhelmed with how much footage and pictures the studio has released of the film so far but I've been enjoying these extras that won't actually show up in the film. They give us a nice little sneak peek into the characters. For instance, this one of Noomi Rapace's character Elizabeth Shaw. I really liked what director Ridley Scott said the other day about the women in his films, and it made me even more excited for what Rapace will get up to in Prometheus.

  7. New Prometheus Video is a Voicemail from the Future [Video]

    The latest video promoting the forthcoming Ridley Scott directed Alien prequel Prometheus has dropped, this time focusing on Noomi Rapace's character Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. Like the previous video with Michael Fassbender, the video gives us a glimpse of a cold, intrusive future and has an ever-present sense of menace just at the fringes of our perception. It's not quite as successful as some of the other promotional videos, but it does serve to reinforce that this movie looks pretty great.

  9. Noomi Rapace on Her Prometheus Character: “The Most Complete Person I Have Ever Played”

    Cautiously Optimistic

    We're naturally skeptical of movie sequels that get put into production decades after their last installments, but we can't help but get excited about Prometheus, Ridley Scott's return to the world of the Alien franchise (if not the franchise itself). After all, he's the director that gave us Ripley and have you looked at the cast? And so when Noomi Rapace starts talking about her character Elizabeth Shaw and how she's a researcher and archeologist who "turns into a fighter" half way through the movie, we pay attention.

  10. Alien Prequel is No More, Now “Prometheus” Instead

    The highly anticipated news that Ridley Scott would be returning to his seminal science fiction setting, the Alien series, has evolved, or, perhaps metamorphosed.  Yes, the joyful facehugger of Ridley Scott and H. R. Geiger creating a prequel to Alien about the briefly and mysteriously featured space jockeys has disappeared, only to be replaced by the chestburster of a completely original science fiction project called Prometheus. Painful?  Yes.  Surprising?  Perhaps.  But ultimately a happy occasion of new life being born among bloody screams in the middle of an otherwise unremarkable breakfast.
