On this edition of the EMExclusives, come with me on a journey to the world of You Won’t Be Alone – coming to theatres this Friday! An beautiful film to watch, features magical performances by its actors, and is profoundly poetic. The film is in Macedonian but has English subtitles. Set in an isolated mountain village in 19th century Macedonia, the film follows a young girl who is kidnapped and then transformed into a witch by an ancient spirit. Curious about life as a human, the young witch accidentally kills a peasant in a nearby village and then takes her victim’s shape to live life in her skin. Her curiosity ignited; she continues to wield this horrific power to understand what it means to be human.
In the first of three interviews, I will talking with actress Anamaria Marinca, who plays Maria – a two hundred year old witch in the movie.
It would seem that Bright is going to be a genuinely big action-fantasy film.
Don’t take my word for it – director David Ayer and the film’s stars – including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace – talk about Bright’s action sequences (and there’s plenty of new footage, to boot).
Bright premieres globally on Netflix on Friday, December 22nd.
In advance of its premiere on August 18th, Netflix has released a sneak peek at a fight sequence from What Happened To Monday? – in which several Noomi Rapaces deal with their home’s invasion by government police/soldiers.
In an overpopulated world, governments have instituted a One Child Policy – making things almost impossible for septuplets to survive – and yet they do, sharing one identity in the outside world – each named for a weekday and only able to go out on that day of the week.
Then, Monday doesn’t come home…
What Happened to Monday? premieres on Netflix on August 18th.
1953: A disgraced Russian cop (he wouldn’t denounce his wife s a traitor) is saddled with the investigation into the ‘accidental’ death of a young boy – but the boy was clearly murdered. His investigation leads to the discovery of others, also ignored or covered up – ‘murder is a capitalist disease!’
Tom Hardy stars as Leo Demidov in the adaptation of bestseller Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. Noomi Rapace plays Leo’s wife, Raisa, and Gary Oldman co-stars as General Mikhail Nesterov. The three must track down a serial killer in a country that refuses to admit to his existence.
Child 44 premiere on April 17th. Check out the intense trailer after the jump.
If you see a gun in the first act of a movie, it must go off in the third. I’m paraphrasing there, The Drop does in fact show you a gun in the first act – more than one, actually – and, from there, the movie moves implacably to its inevitable, yet not quite expected end.
Two guys rob a bar. Ex-con bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) has been funnelling mob money through the bar – which is owned by his cousin, Marv (James Gandolfini), also an ex-con, which is trying to go legit. Sadly, they are not the robbers. Not good.
Noomi Rapace also stars. The Drop has a September 12th release date. Check out the tense new trailer after the jump.
