It may well be the best single piece of acting you’ll see this year – and it isn’t even in the film.
Michael Fassbender’s to-camera rendition of a humanoid in the viral promo for Ridley Scott’s new film, Prometheus, is nothing short of sensational.
When we close the gossip books on 2014, will we say that it’s been a good year for Orlando Bloom? Then Orlando spent much of 2014 living the shadow of Miranda’s new life as a single lady, where she literally had wealthy Aussies fighting over her in the street. “Orlando and Noomi have been spending a lot of time together, both on and off set,” dishes an insider. He finds her fascinating and they have cozy meals together that last for hours.” Noomi, 34, is also planning a move to London, which is where Orlando currently resides.
Orlando and Miranda Kerr split in the fall of 2013 (after widespread rumors of her repeated infidelity and months of separation). I hate to incur the wrath of the Orly-loonies, but there it is. Star Magazine says Orly might have found a new lady… Orlando, 37, has been in Prague shooting his upcomign thriller, ‘Unlocked’, and set sources say he’s become extremely smitten with his costar Noomi Rapace.
‘What is it about robots that makes them so robotic? Most details of Sir Ridley’s prequel-of-sorts to his landmark sci-fi movie, Alien, have been kept strictly under wraps, Fassbender’s viral turn is a mouthwatering taste of what we’re in for.
‘It’s going to be a whole new world within the Alien family,’ Fassbender reveals when we meet at London’s Dorchester Hotel.
She is fidgety and giggly with loosely pinned, curly fair hair; Salander is a chain-smoking, ashen-faced loner whose flesh is armoured with spikes and rings and whose femininity is obliterated by black smears of make-up.
After playing a downward-spiralling teenage mother in Daisy Diamond (the Danish film that gave Rapace her breakthrough role), a 'fragile, vulnerable and a little bit psychotic’ woman in Babycall and, of course, Lisbeth Salander, she says the Sherlock Holmes film 'was probably the most playful journey I’ve been on’.
Rapace has said in the past that her Spanish father was part-gypsy. ' Her Icelandic stepfather is 'the only father I’ve ever had’.
More than four years after “Prometheus” divided fans and critics alike, we have our first real look at what its follow-up holds in store.
“Alien: Covenant” serves as both a sequel to that film and a prequel to the original “Alien,” with Ridley Scott apparently onboard for two more installments in the sci-fi series he first created nearly 40 years ago.
