Check out the debut trailer for Prometheus star, Noomi Rapace new film Close. The Vicky Jewson helmed film is described as an adrenaline-pumping action thriller.

Principal photography on Close began back in August 2017 in Morocco and the United Kingdom.  Netflix acquired the female-led action movie on World Women’s Day 2018. The project was originally bankrolled by WestEnd Films, and acquired under the banner of their female audience brand, WeLove. WeLove’s goal is to develop and produce female specific content.

Here is the official synopsis to Close:

“Inspired by the life of the world’s leading female bodyguard, Jacquie Davis, the film follows Sam (Noomi Rapace), a counter-terrorist expert used to war zones, who takes on the job of protecting Zoe (Sophie Nélisse), a young and rich heiress — a babysitting job for her. But a violent attempted kidnapping forces the two to go on the run. Now they’ve got to take some lives — or lose theirs.”

“Close stars Noomi Rapace (Unlocked, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus, What Happened to Monday and Bright for Netflix), Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief), Eoin Macken (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, The Forest, Merlin TV series) and Indira Varma (Game of Thrones, Luther TV series).”

Rapace looks the part. Close gives me a Man on Fire but in the Middle East kind of vibe. Which is not a terrible thing at all. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing. I thoroughly enjoyed Man on Fire. My favorite scene ended with C4 explosives up a guy’s rear end. Kaboom! Will you stream Close when it debuts on Netflix?
