Considering the raft of titles Netflix has been housing with actress Noomi Rapace front and center, it does make sense that the streamer would eventually nab her most recent pairing with actor Askel Hennie for black home invasion comedy, The Trip.
She rejoins director Tommy Wirkola who previously directed her on What Happened To Monday, a sci-fi actioner I really enjoyed and one that certainly put Rapace on my radar as a screen action talent who shouldn’t be looked over. Best of all is The Trip is just five days away from its launch as of this post, so check out the trailer from last week and set the date for October 15.
Lars (Aksel Hennie) and Lisa (Noomi Rapace) have lost much of the love that brought them together in the first place. Now, they’re struggling to maintain their marriage, and their ambitions. Lars’ career as a director has stalled out in soap operas, and Lisa hasn’t landed a part in years. Lars feels ignored, suspects he’s being cheated on, and struggles financially. Lisa thinks Lars is a spoiled, self-centered coward.
Nothing about their lives turned out the way they’d thought it would – their marriage least of all. So a weekend trip to the family cabin in the woods seems to offer them both an opportunity to get rid of the other. Permanently.
But not even this goes according to plan. The trip involves more surprises and unforeseen turns of events than they’d imagined.
The cast list of The Trip includes Noomi Rapace, Aksel Hennie, Atle Antonsen, Christian Rubeck and André Eriksen among others. The film is directed by Tommy Wirkola who has served as the screenwriter together with Nick Ball and John Niven. The Trip is produced by Jørgen Storm Rosenberg and Kjetil Omberg of 74 Entertainment AS.
