Brian De Palma’s back, and firmly in his wheelhouse of sexual power plays and slithery narratives, with the thriller “Passion.” And after doing some festival jaunts last year, it's headed to theaters and there's a whole bunch of new stuff to look at.

It seems that Noomi Rapace is really into bro-ing out with buff, Euro actors and frankly, who can blame her? She's currently in the midst of doing back-to-back films with Tom Hardy -- "Animal Rescue" which went in front of cameras this past spring and the upcoming thriller "Child 44" -- and now she's gearing up for another movie with one of her 'Rescue' co-stars.

"Dead Man Down," the new revenge movie that marks the domestic debut of Niels Arden Oplev, the Norwegian director behind the original Swedish version of "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," doesn't have an extended title sequence. There are a couple of names of production companies and then the title and that's it. This is sort of strange, especially considering its impressive cast, which includes Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Isabelle Huppert and Terrence Howard. But everything about "Dead Man Down" is designed to catch you off guard, and most of the time it totally works, effortlessly mixing B-movie aesthetics with deeply contemplative European artiness. The result is a movie that is genuinely, totally unexpected.

Interview: Noomi Rapace Talks 'Dead Man Down,' Her Violent '90s Influences & Working With Isabelle Huppert

As far as foreign actresses making the leap to American projects, Noomi Rapace, who made a splash worldwide in the Swedish "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (and its two subsequent films), has done quite well for herself. After introducing herself to domestic audiences with a supporting turn in Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Homes: Game of Shadows," she went on to a high profile turn last summer in Ridley Scott's "Alien" prequel/sequel/whatever "Prometheus," and will again be courting mainstream American super-stardom this weekend in "Dead Man Down," a surprisingly solid revenge movie from her "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev. We talked to her about what drew her to "Dead Man Down," what it was like working with Isabelle Huppert, and the violent '90s movies inspired her performance.

One of the most bickered about movies of last year was Ridley Scott's "Alien" pseudo-prequel "Prometheus," a gaudy, lumbering hulk of a movie with more moving parts than your father's Chevy, it was a film that posed just as many questions as it answered and whose elliptical nature allured as many moviegoers as it repelled. Well, it was still something of a hit, and it appears work is moving ahead on a sequel, at least according to "Prometheus" leading lady Noomi Rapace.

It’s been four years since the surprise international success of the Swedish-language version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and early next month director Niels Arden Oplev will re-team with Noomi Rapace for his English-language debut, the crime thriller “Dead Man Down.” And we've got some exclusive new pics from the film of the actress, along with her co-star Colin Farrell.

With news of a big screen "Entourage" movie and that "Annie" remake, it might be easy to get cynical and disheartened about Hollywood. But as a recent movie has taught us, there's always a shot at a silver lining, and today it comes in the form of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. The pair have already signed up to star in the Dennis Lehane adaptation "Animal Rescue," and at the time they were also considering the Cold War era flick "Child 44." Well it looks like the allure of working together and the material were too good to resist, because what the hell, they're going to do that movie too.

Tom Hardy + Noomi Rapace? Boom, done. When the idea was first floated a month ago, when Rapace was offered a co-starring role, we were already enthuiastic on the idea, but now the actress has gone ahead and accepted a role in "Animal Rescue," in what should be a pretty good showcase for both talents.

It's coming on nearly four years since the original Swedish language version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" rode the wave of the popularity of the books, becoming a hit in its own right and making a star out of Noomi Rapace in the process. But since then, director Niels Arden Oplev has been keeping a low profile. Dabbling in television work for the most part while developing a couple of feature gigs, the helmer will make his Hollywood debut in 2013 with "Dead Man Down." And he's hoping that Rapace is the good luck charm that will work some magic a second time around.

Even though they may not have worked together yet on the big screen, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace seem to already be good pals. The pair were on the cover of Blag magazine (see above), did some promo for it as well this year and seemed to have a blast (just do some Google searches). And now, we may see two of our favorite folks working together, in a very promising project.
