Hotell, Interviews, Movies  •  By  •  Comments Off on This Stunning Swedish Actress Is A-List In The Making

REFINERY 29 – Alicia Vikander has not had a home in three years. The 25-year-old Scandinavian actress, who first gained stateside attention for her roles in Anna Karenina and The Fifth Estate, has eschewed mainstays like say, a well-worn boucherouite rug and a postal address, for two suitcases and a blossoming career that has taken her from movie set to movie set, holding her own against A-list talent like Keira Knightley, Julianne Moore, and Jeff Bridges. If anyone can make vagabond en vogue, it’s this gal. (Even her makeup tricks are shorthand, i.e. dabbing a vamp lipstick on both lips and cheeks.)

No surprise then, that when we caught up with Vikander at the Marrakech International Film Festival, she had just flown in from London after wrapping the Guy Ritchie remake of the ‘60s spy thriller, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. The lithesome beauty, who trained for nine years at the Royal Swedish Ballet School before refocusing on acting, was in the Red City to accept the Best Performance by an Actress award for Lisa Langseth’s knockout indie drama, Hotell, in which she plays Erika, a new mother who is suffering from extreme postnatal depression and finds solace in the anonymity of hotels.

We sat down with the actress at the opulent Hotel Es Saadi and talked everything from acting crazy, traveling light, and nixing that trick-candle rumor about a certain True Blood hunk…

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Swede Alicia Vikander took home the best actress prize for Hotell, the story of young woman who moves from hotel to hotel in an effort to become a new person each time. Vikander was presented the award by the actresses on the panel, Cotillard, Clarkson and Farahani.
“Thank you to all the actresses that moved us,” said Cotillard before announcing the winner. “The one we choose to honor tonight touched our hearts deeply.”
A visibly moved Vikander accepted the award, thanking director Lisa Langseth for their second collaboration. “It’s really an honor to get this award because this film meant so much to me. Something else that means a lot to me and that’s you, Lisa,” she said. “It feels like you’ve given me the tools to evolve as an actress. It feels like I’ve matured, I’ve grown up. My career started with you and thank you forever for that.” Vikander is starring in the upcoming The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Movies, The Seventh Son  •  By  •  Comments Off on Universal, Legendary Push Back ‘Warcraft,’ ‘Seventh Son’ Dates

VARIETY – With Legendary joining Universal as a new partner in July, the two have already moved around release dates for upcoming projects, including pushing “Seventh Son” from 2014 to 2015 and “Warcraft” out of 2015 to March 11, 2016.

“Seventh Son,” starring Jeff Bridges, was set to open on Jan. 17, 2014, but will now open on Feb. 6, 2015. The move is interesting given that Universal is already opening “Fifty Shades of Grey” on Valentine’s Day 2015, but given that “Seventh Son” plays to boys, the move comes off as good counterprogramming.

This marks the second time Legendary has moved “Seventh Son,” which was supposed to open this October before Legendary moved it a year later to January.

“Warcraft” was expected to open on Dec. 18, 2015, but now that the new “Star Wars” is opening on the same day, it made sense to get out of the way of the behemoth that is expected to be one of 2015?s biggest releases.

Universal and Legendary have also dated the untitled Michael Mann-Chris Hemsworth cyber-terrorist pic to open on January 16, 2015. U has also dated Jason Blum’s “The Boy Next Door,” starring Jennifer Lopez, for Jan. 23, 2015, and the new “Mummy” reboot for April 22, 2016.

FLAUNT – Alicia. That’s right. Say it out loud, gently. Do not simply read it in your mind or mutely move your dried, unspoken lips. Alicia. You can even feel it: The word, a vibrating note narrowing into a distinct sound, is carried on, brought about the tip of your concave then convex tongue, utterly and grandly enchanting a perfect ear’s ear.

Now move through fifteen years in 1.5 seconds, with images of Alicia’s life flashing in your head, as if a black hole were rapidly enveloping history. The calendar is consuming itself like a starved scientist is ripping off its pages. The decors are being destroyed, rebuilt, painted over by the Master set designers of real life (God? Mother Nature?).

The Nutcracker. The Swedish Royal Ballet School. Mom performing on stage. Alicia crying because mom isn’t mom. Dad hypnotizing Alicia into feeling better. Fast this time, not like the name! This is all happening in your head! Alicia going to Denmark. Alicia learning Danish in a couple of months. Alicia practicing how to ride a horse for work. Alicia working in Russia. Alicia in Sweden, in America, in London. Alicia living like a gypsy. Alicia feeling lonely at the airport. Alicia falling in love with a boy named Alex, Alexander Skarsgård. Alicia ordering mint tea at the Colbert on Sloane Square.

There, we are now in the present. Alicia is an actress, a young, ravishing, Swedish actress who is talking to me, answering all my questions, and I am…well, let’s leave that aside. She will soon be seen in her first big studio film Seventh Son, an American adaptation of the fantasy novel written by Orson Scott Card, alongside Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, and Ben Barnes.

We are sitting outside of the Parisian boulevard-inspired café, located on Sloane Square, Chelsea—the starting point of King’s Road, a chemin reserved until the ’30s of the 19th century to His Majesty King Charles II, allowing him to tranquilly and aloofly make his way to Kew in his silk stockings as he wished. They say that people with connections had the privilege of using the road as well. Oh, how we thrive and live for connections and “knowing a guy who knows a guy.”

GQ – The Fifth Estate star lets her secrets slip…

While the period drama seems to be ushering in all the actresses of the moment, it’s saddling them with a certain bête noire. Ask Alicia Vikander. “Corsets,” she explains. “They keep hunting me down.” Last year’s A Royal Affair, check. Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina, check. Even when the Swedish 25-year-old skipped genres, for next year’s Seventh Son, her wardrobe was replete with them.

So she breathed a sigh of relief when cast in this month’s WikiLeaks thriller The Fifth Estate, which follows Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) as they expose the news behind the news. Vikander plays Domscheit-Berg’s wife, Anke. “I knew a lot about WikiLeaks already,” she says. “One of the most famous documentaries about it came out in Sweden before the war logs were released, and Julian was still considered a very brave man. The Fifth Estate doesn’t judge what he did, but brings the subject of transparency to the surface.”

With a string of cinematic behemoths on her slate, Vikander’s on the brink of international fame – after Seventh Son, she’ll appear in Guy Ritchie’s The Man From UNCLE, then in Ex Machina as a robot. And none of them, she’s pleased to report, involve corsets.

The Fifth Estate is out on now. Seventh Son is out in 2014.
