‘Seven Sisters’ Trailer Puts Noomi Rapace’s Acting Prowess on Display

Published

We all fell in love with Noomi Rapace after her powerhouse performance in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Every single time she’s cast, it’s a celebration, which is why this next title has me drooling in excitement. In the sci-fi thriller Seven Sisters, also releasing under the title What Happened to Monday?, Rapace plays seven twin sisters, who are named after the days of the week. Monday goes missing.

Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters‘s Tommy Wirkola directed the feature, which will put Rapace’s acting prowess on display, as she gets to play seven different roles. The trailer really hones in on this, focusing a lot on the seven siblings. One this that worries me, however, is that the trailer makes me continually think of Eddie Murphy’s dinner table scene in Nutty Professor. Hercules! Hercules!

Set in a world where families are allowed only one child due to overpopulation, a resourceful set of seven identical sisters must avoid governmental execution and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.

Willem Dafoe (John Wick, Antichrist) and Glenn Close also star in the film, with Marwan Kenzari (Accused, Reckless), Christian Rubeck (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Pal Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki). Close plays the fierce head of the Child Allocation Bureau, Nicolette Cayman.

It was produced by Vendome Pictures and Raffaella Productions and fully financed by SND, which will handle French distribution rights as well as international sales.

The script was written by Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross) and Max Botkin (Robosapien: Rebooted). Thanks to Fabien M. for the tip.
