I adore Noomi Rapace. She’s gorgeous, she’s passionate, she’s rebellious and head strong. She also made Prometheus pretty damn enjoyable. She’s certainly okay in my book, which is why there’s some real excitement surrounding her new Netflix pic, What Happened to Monday?
The film has some top-notch talent behind the camera, as well, as Tommy Wirkola (the Dead Snow flicks) directs while Martin Stoltz handles the editing and the underrated José David Montero handles the cinematography.
Joining Rapace on screen will be Willem Dafoe, Glenn Close and Robert Wagner.
Dig on the trailer below, and keep in mind, this one arrives on Netflix on August 1st.
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) 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. Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home.
