Awesome Trailer for the Sci-Fi Thriller SEVEN SISTERS with Noomi Rapace and Willem Dafoe
An international trailer has been released for an upcoming sci-fi thriller called Seven Sisters and it looks awesome! The film has a fascinating concept, the story of which is set in a future where governments have set a law where couples can only have one child. However, there's a family with seven identical sisters that are forced to live in secret.
The movie stars Willem Dafoe as the father of the sisters who are all played by Prometheus star Noomi Rapace. Each of the sisters are named after a day of the week and each one lives their life in the outside world one day at a time. For example, Monday goes out Monday, Tuesday goes out Tuesday, etc. So each one of them has to pretend and live the life of the same person. Then one day Monday is taken and she doesn't come home.
I absolutely love the premise of this movie as it's a very original concept, and I'm pretty excited about watching it. Then you have Rapace, who is taking on the role of seven different characters, which is pretty rad. I guess it kinda has an Orphan Black vibe to it. The movie also stars Glenn Close, Robert Wagner, Marwan Kenzari, and Pål Sverre Hagen. Here's the synopsis:
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.
The movie was directed by Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola (Kill Buljo: The Movie, Dead Snow 1 & 2, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters). There's no release date set for the U.S. yet.
