    Alicia Vikander to select the EE Rising Star Award shortlist for the 2021 EE British Academy Film Awards

    Hello everyone!
    Alicia was interviewed by Shortcutz Network yesterday (May 12, 2020). For the record, Shortcutz is an urban short films movement which aims to support young talents of the new world cinema, promotes direct interaction between artists and the public. This session was really interesting and we’ve learned so much about her career, and mainly, on how she was able to build her international career. If I have time, I will try to make a transcription of this one-hour interview but you can easily watch it below. Thank you Shortcutz Network for this great Movie Talkz :)

    On her next project, Alicia talked about a bit of Tomb Raider 2 (around 1:00:35 mins), explaining that she was ‘excited about Tomb Raider 2 but since everything has stopped (because of the COVID-19 crisis) we just don’t know anything (at the moment). We have to stay safe and fine. Hopefully, I’ll have an answer in a few months.’ Fingers crossed 🤞

    Anticipation for The Green Knight soared in February after A24 dropped the dazzling first trailer for David Lowery’s reimagining of the Sir Gawain and the Green Knight legend. The indie studio was set to world premiere the Arthurian legend at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, though the March festival was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. During an interview on the most recent episode of the A24 Project podcast (via The Playlist), Lowery says that not being able to premiere The Green Knight at SXSW was somewhat of a blessing in disguise.

    “We were really rushing to try to get done by SXSW, and the movie, if we showed it there, would not have been fully finished,” Lowery said. “It would have been close, but not quite done. If we had to release the movie tomorrow, it would be pretty close to where it needs to be. But we’re able to take a breather and sit with it.”
    < A24 announced a May 29 theatrical release date for The Green Knight when the trailer dropped, but the studio now lists the project as having a TBD 2020 opening. A24 confirmed with IndieWire the movie currently remains undated. The same thing happened to the release of the A24 horror film “Saint Maud,” which got delayed indefinitely from its originally-planned April 10 release date. Both movies are genre films and could wind up on VOD should A24 choose to release them that way. Lowery said he doesn’t know anything when it comes to how The Green Knight will get released.

    “No one knows. That’s the case with everything at the moment. No one knows anything,” Lowery said. “All I can say is that at some point audiences will see it. And they’ll see it in the best way possible, given the circumstances. Hopefully, that’s in theaters. Hopefully, theaters survive. I’m a big-time defender of the theatrical experience, and one of the things I love about A24 is that they are as well.”

    Lowery continued, “[But] if I were just an audience member and I’ve been stuck at home for six months and I wanted to see a new movie, I’d rather see it at home than not see it at all. So I’m confident that it’ll be seen soon, but ‘soon’ is variable.”

    The Green Knight stars Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson, and Barry Keoghan. The movie reunites Lowery with A24 after the release of A Ghost Story. A24 issued no comment about the film’s release date when requested by IndieWire.

    The Green Knight WORLD PREMIERE on Monday, March 16 at SXSW

    “I thought a lot about growing up, about finding your own voice, who you are, what you want to do and the struggle of getting there!” We are thrilled to bring you this special and personal conversation with actor Alicia Vikander! She talks to us about starring as feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the upcoming film The Glorias (directed by Julie Taymor), about how she has found her voice and what she wants to do with her Hollywood power!

    After more than a decade in the industry, and post Oscar-win, Alicia Vikander speaks to Christina about how she is learning to take small breaks and how cooking helps! About her focus and how she and Steinem connected in personal ways. How, early in her Hollywood career, an actress spoke up for her in an uncomfortable, sexist situation and how much that taught her. And how she wants to use her voice and her power to play women from all angles and all dimensions and to get smaller movies with interesting writer/directors off the ground, like her upcoming film Blue Bayou. And much more!

    The Glorias premiered at Sundance and will out later this year.

    Alicia Vikander isn’t necessarily looking to start a family just yet, but the actress has an idea about how she’d want to raise any potential children in the future.

    “Any life is different. I try to just remember that,” Vikander, 28, told Entertainment Weekly, PEOPLE, and InStyle at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, where she’s promoting the film Euphoria. “It’s really been the people surrounding me growing up — my family members but also my friends kind of formed who I am. I do believe a lot of that context and environment is part of creating who we are, not only nature. I would want to do that with a family one day too if that’s the case.”

    The Oscar-winning Vikander has been dating actor Michael Fassbender, 40, since the pair met on the set of The Light Between Oceans in 2014.

    “It wasn’t the first time in a movie either of us had played somebody who is falling in love,” Fassbender told EW last year about falling in love in real life while playing characters in love on screen. “There is an element of separation there. If I’m playing a murderer, I don’t go out and start murdering people.”

    “I think we’ve made a clear statement that we keep certain things just between us. It was very easy to unite, but that’s quite personal,” added Vikander.
