Noomi Rapace Left Tongue-tied By James Gandolfini

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace was left tongue-tied when she first met her larger-than-life The Drop co-star James Gandolfini because he was everything she feared he would be. The new thriller was The Sopranos star's final film and Rapace can still vividly remember the day he walked into a diner to meet her and director Michael Roskam for the first time.

The Drop gets a rise

Hollywood heavyweights have had such a blast bringing Dennis Lehane novels to the screen that it's no surprise the author himself has elected to get in on the good times. In the wake of Clint Eastwood's Mystic River , Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island and - the best of the bunch - Ben Affleck's Gone Baby Gone comes The Drop , with Lehane adapting his own short story "Animal Rescue."

Film Scene: Take your pick from new 'worst film' contenders

When a studio refuses to offer sneak previews of a new film to established critics in advance of said film's release, there's probably a very good reason why. Think about it.

Clueless Movie Reviews: "The Drop"

The Drop is a quietly intense and riveting crime drama that takes hold of you with its authenticity, its creative camera work, its surprisingly nuanced characters and the performances that bring those characters to life. For actors Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini, it's precisely the kind of consummate, committed work audiences have come to expect when they take on serious roles.

Noomi Rapace balances dark characters in The Drop with sunny outlook

She's played characters so dark and brooding that when Noomi Rapace opens the door with a high-beam smile and a head of sunny blond hair, it takes a moment to recalibrate. The Swedish actress who etched her persona into the pop culture psyche as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is still dressed in black, wearing chunky platform boots and looking latter-day Goth, but there's a genuine happy vibe that immediately makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 Close to Super Creepy Villain in Sean Harris

I'm more excited for Mission: Impossible 5 than I have been for any other film in the franchise. It seems like the series finally hit a nice stride in the 4th installment, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol , so hopefully they used what worked about that film as a blueprint moving forward.
