Hot on the heels of Rupture, a particular favourite of mine at last year’s SITGES – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, if the first look trailer of Lionsgate’s action thriller UNLOCKED is anything to go by, Noomi Rapace’s bad-assery is about to reach a whole new level.
Starring as Alice Racine, Rapace plays a CIA interrogator now leading a quiet life in London as a caseworker after her career was sidelined when she failed “to unlock” a prisoner in time to save the lives of dozens of innocent people from a terrorist attack in Paris. Alice is suddently flung back into the thick of the action when the CIA apprehends a suspect believed to have direct knowledge of another imminent attack.
Under the direction of veteran helmer Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Extreme Measures), Rapace also stars alonside Orlando Bloom who plays enigmatic war veteran Jack Alcott, two-time Oscar-winner Michael Douglas as Alice’s mentor Eric Lasch, along with Academy Award® nominees Toni Collette as MI5 Agent Emily Knowles, and John Makovich as Bob Hunter, the CIA’s Director of European Operations.
Make a note in your diary as Unlocked is slated to rush out, guns blazing, this May 5th in the UK.
