Seven Sisters Trailer

"We've got to help her. We've got to go out there!" The first full trailer has debuted for a sci-fi thriller titled Seven Sisters, also going by the name What Happened to Monday?. The film is set in the near future when governments have enacted a One-Child Policy, but a family of seven sisters outwits the strict societal policy by existing in secrecy. Noomi Rapace plays all seven sisters, each with a different identity, and each named for the days of the week - Monday, Tuesday, etc. They go out one-by-one each day pretending they're the same person, and everything seems to be going fine until one day Monday doesn't come home. The cast includes Willem Dafoe, Glenn Close, Robert Wagner, Marwan Kenzari, and Pål Sverre Hagen. This actually looks damn good, with some cool sci-fi elements/ideas in it and an original story that takes the dual-performance concept to a whole new level - with seven performances by one actor in one film. I'm in.

Here's the first international trailer for Tommy Wirkola's Seven Sisters, direct from YouTube (via TMB):

Seven Sisters Poster

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. Seven Sisters is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola, of the films Kill Buljo: The Movie, Dead Snow 1 & 2, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters previously. The screenplay is written by Kerry Williamson and Max Botkin. Netflix will release Wirkola's What Happened to Monday? streaming exclusively starting August 18th. Interested?

Intrigued. And I like Noomi Rapace. I remember watching her in original Swedish films about Lisbeth Salander. She was exceptional...

Intrigued too, and I like Noomi. Very authentic. The story sounds like Orphan Black though.

I don't know much about Orphan Black (I know about the show, but just can't find my interest in it), but I like the actress. Some stories, and this one looks like it, can be made good if there's good acting character. And this one looks, as we both said it already, intriguing and Noomi might be just the right one for the leading role. And I hope Bo won't be right about the director. But who knows nowadays? Everything can look good in trailer and than ends up badly and cheap. As said, hopefully not with this one ...

Didn't like the show either. Such a drag going nowhere. The actress is talented though. As you said, Wait and see...

Looks fine but it has already done better by Tatiana Maslany.

I guess this will just have to chalked up to another difference of opinion, Bo. In the 4 seasons of her show, Maslany has shown to be more than capable of acting on a level that rivals or surpasses Rapace (who herself is a talented actor). Maybe you have a bias against sci-fi or something, like many do (just a conjecture, not an assumption)? But great actors are great actors, regardless of the genre of their work or respect from the Industry. At the end of the day, I won't argue if you didn't find Maslany to your taste, but she definitely is a supremely gifted actress.

Calling someone gifted is hyperbole? I don't think so. I think it's called a difference of opinion. So apparently you don't think she's gifted. Well your opinion is in the minority. Maybe just be more open minded than dismissive in the future. Can you do that?

Fair to say you are a troll of the highest order. I will never make the mistake of conversing with you again. Good riddance.

For sure. I stand by my claims. Get on getting on.

Peace, brother Bo. ~
