Noomi Rapace Is a Badass Bodyguard in Trailer for Netflix's New Action Thriller CLOSE
Netflix has released the first trailer for a new action thriller starring Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) called Close. In the film she plays a badass bodyguard named Sam who is hired to protect an heiress from highly trained kidnappers. In the process she “must unravel a sinister plot — while striving to stay alive.”
The movie looks great and the character Sam is actually loosely based on a real-life bodyguard named Jacquie Davis, who has worked for J.K. Rowling, Nicole Kidman, and members of the British royal family. In an interview with EW, Rapace talked about how she’s always been fascinated with female bodyguards:
“I was obsessed with their world and how good they are at leading people and blending in and basically not taking up any space. They’re behind you or in front of you, but they walk with you. It’s almost like a dance. It’s just a very intriguing, kind of hidden and secretive world.”
This female-driven action drama was written and directed by Vicky Jewson, and it is set to premiere on Netflix on January 18, 2019. I think the movie looks solid and I’ll be looking forward to watching it. Check out the trailer for yourself below.
