Netflix presents the First Look at the highly-anticipated futuristic thriller Mute. Enter the captivating world of visionary filmmaker Duncan Jones, featuring Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux and newcomer Seyneb Saleh.
Duncan Jones, the creative mind behind the cult-hit Moon and Source Code, returns to his creative roots with this original and gripping story set in an immersive universe.
Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.
The Netflix original film is directed by Duncan Jones and written by Jones and Michael Robert Johnson. Stuart Fenegan serves as producer and Charles J.D. Schissel and Trevor Beattie serve as executive producers. The film will launch in all territories where Netflix is available in 2017.
Huge thanks to Netflix for the press release and images. Can’t wait to see Alex in this role.
We finally have a new “The Legend of Tarzan” video where we can hear Alexander Skarsgard speaking in his role of Tarzan. We can hear him say “I am John Clayton the third”. The video is below. The film is due to be released in the US on July 1, 2016.
The June 2015 issue of Vogue magazine features Margot Robbie on the cover. The issue also features a great interview with Margot and also a photoshoot with Margot and Alex. Huge thanks to The Alexander Skarsgard Library tumblr for the awesome heads up and photos. Also a huge thanks to ualllook instagram for the cover shot. Excerpt from the magazine may be found here:

Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of The Legend of Tarzan. Two new tv spots were shown recently. The videos are available on youtube links below. Still catching up on all the new photos and news! Sorry for the long delay (I’m overseas now so the time difference has been tough). I also post on our tumblr account.
Spot the spirit tv spot video:
Good Morning America tweeted the new poster for “Tarzan” today. The film is due in theaters on July 1. The Facebook page for the film also gave fans a treat by releasing the newest trailer also today! Oh what a great day indeed. The video is linked here: Tarzan promo #2 Plus there is a RT contest on twitter @thelegendoftarzan. Good luck!
Apologies to our visitors that I have been absent and missed posting some rather gorgeous new photos / interviews of Alexander at Berlin and Istanbul Film Festivals. I have recently had major surgery and am currently in a long recovery process! Partly due to this (there’s nothing like a serious illness to make you re-evaluate how you spend your life) and partly due to a loneliness I have felt for a while now in the Alex fandom, I have decided to move away from my role here updating skarsgardfans.com. I started working here around 18 months ago after a few very happy years working on a very successful blog called “ericandsookielovers”. My fellow bloggers there moved on to new interests when “True Blood” ended and I came here hoping to repeat the huge success we had there, with lots of comments and activity (I even had dreams of starting up a new Alex fan forum) but alas it wasn’t to be. If there is a really active Alex fan community still alive anywhere on-line I have failed to find it. I am not the site owner, only a humble contributor, but as I have been the only contributor for several months now I have no idea if the site will spring back to life in the future (with the release of Tarzan perhaps?). In my future I will be concentrating on the very active Facebook page I run supporting Alex alexskarsgardfans and hope to keep that updated with all the best new photos etc. and for now I will also be keeping the new Instagram page alexskarsgard_fans too as it has grown surprisingly quickly in a short space of time.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Barbara for letting me play with her site, I love to blog and will miss the opportunity to do so, and I want to thank each and every one of the several 100 regular visitors who have continued to check us out every single day. Like all other fans, I am hoping that 2016 will be a great year for Alexander and that Tarzan will be a massive worldwide success for him.
Take care everyone & happy skarsgazing!

The Berlin Film Festival have uploaded a short clip from Alexander’s movie War On Everyoneonto their festival website. The movie has it’s world premiere at the festival on February 12th.
Click on the nice, polite picture below to view the clip of bad cop, bad cop!
And here’s a description of the movie from Berlin……
Terry & Bob: tougher than Starsky & Hutch, funnier than Laurel & Hardy and better looking than Siegfried & Roy. These hard-to-impress buddy cops blackmail the entirety of New Mexico, plant cocaine on small-time hoods with bubble perms, consume it there and then, drink non-stop, ram their snazzy car into a wall, return to wife and kids (as Bob does, played by Michael Pena), marvel at ‘chicks with dicks’, or fall in love with the right sort of girl (as Terry does, played by Alexander Skarsgård). But a British Lord, especially a real one, will not allow himself to be pushed around in the manner to which these carefree, chaotic cops have become accustomed. Terry and Bob get more entangled in a web of blackmail, abduction and drugs than they could ever have imagined even in their wildest acid-nightmares … Irish director John Michael McDonagh will be familiar to Panorama audiences through his sarcastic portrait of small-town cops The Guard and his quick-witted drama about sexual abuse in the church, Calvary. His latest film is a bitter, hyperactive, tragicomic trip against a crazy backdrop of references to cop films and crime series, with great music and two male leads who really take it to the limit.
