What Happened to Monday Trailer: Noomi Rapace plays seven identical sisters
Netflix has released the trailer and poster for their upcoming sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday, starring Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as seven identical sisters. Also starring Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, The English Patient) and Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction, The Big Chill), you can view the What Happened to Monday trailer and poster below.
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters 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 (Noomi Rapace). 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…
Directed by Tommy Wirkola (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Dead Snow), the film is written by Max Botkin (Opposite Day) & Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross). Produced by Raffaella De Laurentiis, Fabrice Gianfermi, and Philippe Rousselet and will arrive on Netflix August 18.
