GÖTEBORG, Sweden — Alicia Vikander is at this week’s Goteborg Film Festival to help promote the Alicia Vikander Film Lab high-school initiative, and because Scandinavia’s largest film festival, held in her home town of Göteborg, southern Sweden, has always been part of her life.

Established in 2021 by Vikander (“The Danish Girl”), the Festival and the Sten Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture, the three-year film training program is for local high-school-aged students, with the program made available to educational establishments in the Goteborg area since last January.

“We’ve managed to get it on the curriculum,” said Vikander who is the biggest star at this year’s festival and a fixture at the event, reciting an Honorary Nordic Dragon Award, for instance, in 2018. “It’s a project where I’ve been able to get a lot of it done remotely on Zoom,” she told Variety at Göteborg.

On Monday at the Festival, a gala will take place presenting films by this year’s students. 12 short films will be screened. The films are between two and five minutes long. Since the launch, film teachers from the Festival have been visiting schools selected this year, once a month, and Vikander has visited the schools twice during the school year.

The participating schools in 2022 are Kannebäcksskolan, Nordhemsskolan and Skälltorpsskolan – the school that Vikander attended. Each year, three to four new schools join the project.

“For a long time, I wanted to find a way to give back,” says Vikander who trained as a dancer at the Royal Swedish Ballet School. Read More

Award-winning Korean actors Hwang Jung-min, Zo In-sung and Hoyeon have joined Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender in the cast of upcoming thriller Hope.

The Korean feature is directed by Na Hong-jin, marking his first film since The Wailing in 2016, and is backed by Korean producer-distributor Plus M Entertainment.

Hwang starred in The Wailing, which played at Cannes, and is also known for Netflix’s Narco-Saints, Cannes 2022 title Hunt and Berlin 2023 feature Kill Boksoon.

Zo is known for roles in war epic The Great Battle and more recently Escape From Mogadishu, while Hoyeon was a breakout star of Netflix’s Squid Game, for which she received an Emmy nomination and won best outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series at the SAG Awards. Hope will mark her feature debut.

The film follows the residents of Hopo Port, where a mysterious discovery is made on the outskirts of the remote harbour town. Before long, the residents find themselves in a desperate fight for survival against something they have never encountered before.

It is not yet known what roles Oscar winner Vikander and Oscar nominee Fassbender will play in the largely Korean-language film, but Hwang will play a village police officer while Zo takes on the role of a young hunter.

Cinematographer Hong Kyung-pyo, known for his work on Oscar winner Parasite and Cannes Competition title Burning, is also on board. It marks his second collaboration with Na after The Wailing.

Plus M Entertainment recently signed a financing and distribution deal with director Na, who is also known for The Chaser and The Yellow Sea, which respectively played at Cannes in 2008 and 2011. Hope will be produced under Na’s own Forged Films and in pre-production, with filming set to begin in Korea later this year.

Additional casting and pre-production are underway for a shoot later this year in Korea.

While the movie will be in Korean, Fassbender and Vikander will speak their lines in English. They had wished to take part after being impressed by the director’s previous work.

“Hope” marks the second time they’ve appeared together in the same movie after 2016’s ‘The Light Between Oceans.’

Korean producer-distributor Plus M Entertainment, owned by multiplex chain Megabox, is behind the project after recently inking a financing and distribution deal with Na, also known for Korean movies “The Chaser” and “The Yellow Sea”.

Alicia is fronting a brand new Louis Vuitton campaign this year, and this time it’s for the brand’s very first high jewelry campaign! I’ve attached an article with more information about the campaign below, and you can find the first stunning HQ photo of Alicia modelling their jewelry in our gallery here.

PARIS — Louis Vuitton is launching its first high jewelry campaign, fronted by Alicia Vikander, marking steep ambitions from the luxury label as it continues its push into the category.

“She’s very regal but approachable,” said Michael Burke, the brand’s chief executive officer, speaking with WWD from an upper floor meeting room of its buzzing Pont Neuf headquarters here. The executive pointed to her training as a classical dancer, stressing the importance of showing the movement of the body for displaying jewelry.

“There’s a return to jewelry that’s sensual,” he remarked, adding that jewelry worn on the skin — rather than in the hair, for example — takes on a “whole new sensuality.”

The executive noted that Nicolas Ghesquière, who designs the label’s women’s collections, started working with Vikander first. The designer felt she had “the right energy, and the right type of grace and movement and expression to bring his clothes to life,” Burke said.

He noted a compatibility in style with Francesca Amfitheatrof, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director for jewelry and watches.

“She designs for that type of woman, she doesn’t design girly little flowers. Nobody needs another girly little flower thing, with center stones and some brilliant diamonds around it. The market is full of that,” he said. (Read the full article at WWD)

The Italian director’s new film, produced by Luca Guadagnino and coming to Netflix on August 13, will inaugurate the starry nights of Locarno74 on August 4

The night of Laetitia Casta in Piazza Grande will also belong to John David Washington, Boyd Holbrook, Vicky Krieps and Alicia Vikander on the big screen. They’re part of the images of Beckett by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino, the feature that will mark the first of eleven starry nights at Locarno74 after the French actress’s acceptance of the Excellence Award Davide Campari. The opening ceremony will be followed by the world premiere of Cito Filomarino’s film, produced by Luca Guadagnino, which will bring thriller vibes to the Piazza.

Artistic Director Giona A. Nazzaro: “There’s a piece of Locarno in the success story of Ferdinando Cito Filomarino. From the Pardi di domani to the Piazza Grande. The Locarno Film Festival as an incubator for talent, a training ground and finally as a launch pad for the most exciting filmmakers of the future. Beckett is a thriller that gives an original and contemporary reboot to the lessons learned from directors such as Sydney Pollack and Alan J. Pakula. An action film with a humanist dimension and intense civil engagement, here underpinned by a magisterial performance from John David Washington. Political commitment and great entertainment are the two main ingredients for a Piazza Grande that aims to surprise audiences and reassert the centrality of film in all its forms.”

One of the largest and most prestigious open-air screens in the world will play host to the cast of Beckett, including Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander, as the Piazza Grande audience will be immersed in a story about vacations in Greece and car accidents, escapes and manhunts, embassies and conspiracies. These thriller threads will bring the Italian filmmaker back to Locarno, where he previously took part in the Pardi di domani section in 2011 with Diarchia, and they also won over Netflix, who will unveil Beckett on their platform on August 13. This path from the Piazza to a streaming service is part of the trajectories of the film industry where Locarno intends to be a key player, imagining and crafting a future where the Festival, streaming platforms and movie theaters will be partners, rather than rivals.

Beckett, like all Piazza Grande films – with the exception of short films and films in the Histoire(s) du cinéma and Retrospettiva sections –, will participate in the Prix du public UBS 2021, the Locarno Film Festival prize awarded by the largest jury imaginable. Since 1994, it is the Festival’s audience that chooses the winning title: the thousands of spectators on the Piazza who, every evening, can vote for their favorite film thanks to the official Festival App (available for download from mid-July). Among the winners of the past editions, which has since 2000 supported by UBS, are: Smoke by Wayne Wang, Death at a Funeral by Frank Oz, I, Daniel Blake by Ken Loach and BlaKkKlansman by Spike Lee.

The first official still from Alicia’s upcoming thriller ‘Beckett‘ has been released! Entertainment Weekly shared the exclusive first look yesterday, along with an interview with the film’s director Cito Filomarino. You can find the still featuring Alicia in our gallery!

Beckett will premiere on Netflix on August 13, and its official plot reads: Following a tragic car accident in Greece, Beckett, an American tourist, finds himself at the center of a dangerous political conspiracy and on the run for his life.


EW | Not every vacation is rejuvenating. In Ferdinando Cito Filomarino’s paranoid thriller Beckett, John David Washington takes an international trip that’s anything but relaxing. The Tenet star plays Beckett, an American tourist exploring Greece with his girlfriend April (Alicia Vikander), when he stumbles upon a kidnapping. His inadvertent discovery makes him the target of a nationwide manhunt, as he struggles to outmaneuver assassins and trek from rural wilderness to the U.S. embassy in Athens.

“A manhunt thriller is a road-trip movie, in a way,” Cito Filomarino says. “It was interesting to embrace the variety of Greece’s topography, like, what can we throw at Beckett next? Mountains, rivers, buses, trains…”

The man-on-the-run adventure has been a longtime staple of cinema, and Cito Filomarino drew inspiration for Beckett’s journey from classics like The Parallax View and Three Days of the Condor. But he also wanted to explore the emotional toll of the journey, emphasizing just how unprepared Beckett is and leaving room for quieter, more introspective moments. (Fortunately for Beckett, he does find an ally in a political activist named Lena, played by Phantom Thread’s Vicky Krieps.)

“It’s not so much an all-seeing narration or a grand chess game with many players,” Cito Filomarino explains. “[It’s] more of a dramatic experience of a man who, for all intents and purposes, is not supposed to be in a thriller.”

“He doesn’t have all the answers,” Washington adds of his beleaguered protagonist. “He doesn’t have an ex-Marine background; he doesn’t have all these abnormal sensibilities and strengths that exceed the normal man.”

And although Beckett may be ordinary, playing him still required Washington to perform a few extraordinary feats, from scrambling up cliffs in the Grecian countryside to navigating an explosive rally scene in the Athenian streets. “The irony is that he’s a very common dude and is not very athletic,” Washington admits with a laugh. “It was as taxing as if the guy had to karate-chop and snap necks.”

“He definitely lost some weight in the process of making this movie because he was running so much,” Cito Filomarino adds.
