“Allegiant” Trailer Featuring Bill Skarsgard

The Weinstein Company Party In Cannes Hosted By Lexus And Chopard At Baoli Beach - Arrivals

A new trailer for Allegiant has been released featuring Bill Skarsgard, who makes his series debut in this, the third Divergent movie. Alexander’s War On Everyone co-star Theo James plays one of the lead roles.

The third installment of the blockbuster Divergent series franchise, ALLEGIANT takes Tris [Shailene Woodley] and Four [Theo James] into a new world, far more dangerous than ever before.

After the earth-shattering revelations of INSURGENT, Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.




“Hidden” Is Pretty Good Actually!!!


Alexander’s movie “Hidden” is now available on DVD in the US and Canada.

I was lucky enough to see this movie a couple of weeks ago and I really liked it. I can understand why Warner Bros didn’t give it cinematic release but it works well on the small screen.

The basic synopsis is that a family has been hiding out in an old bomb shelter  for several months, but we don’t know who or what they are hiding from. Some information is given in flashbacks throughout the movie, but the audience is left in the dark (you see what I did there?) about the exact details for the majority of the story.

Alexander & Jack McBrayer in the Arctic for Greenpeace


Alexander and his good friend, 30 Rock actor Jack McBrayer, are currently visiting the Arctic to support Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic Campaign. They are travelling on board The Arctic Sunrise.

Save The Arctic

 The Arctic is under threat. As the ice melts, giant corporate companies are rushing in to exploit its resources.

The Arctic Sunrise is in Greenland to bear witness to Seismic Blasting activities which are rocking the very eco-system  .

Deadspin: Best Performance Given To Alexander Skarsgard


Over at Deadspin, movie columnist Tim Grierson has given Alexander his Best Performance in a summer movie Award for Monroe in “The Diary of a Teenage Girl“.

Best Performance: Playing a lecherous creep is easy—playing a lecherous creep you almost feel sorry for is hard. In the acclaimed 1970s drama The Diary of a Teenage GirlAlexander Skarsgård is terrific as Monroe, the boyfriend of Kristen Wiig’s hippie-ish mother to precocious, awkward teen Minnie (an excellent Bel Powley). Soon, Monroe begins a clandestine relationship with the sexually inexperienced daughter, requiring Skarsgård to walk a delicate line between full-blown skuzzball and deeply troubled loser. As its title suggests, Teenage Girlchiefly focuses on Minnie’s coming of age, but it’s Skarsgård who’s instrumental in powering the story, giving us a man who’s never quite aware of the damage he’s doing to this young woman because he’s too busy being absorbed in his own selfishness.

If you are lucky there still may be time to see “Diary” at the cinema, but here in the UK it is disappearing fast.

Alexander Interview With The Herald (Scotland)


Here’s an in-depth interview Alexander gave to The Herald Scotland during the Edinburgh Film Festival. He talks about growing up in Stockholm and his military service. There’s also some more mentions of “Tarzan” (only 11 months to go now) which only gets us really, really excited as we still await our first glimpse of the Jungle King.

When he was 19 Alexander Skarsgard signed up for national service. He didn’t do it for a laugh. He didn’t do it because he’d always wanted to join the army. He didn’t do it because he wanted to fire a gun. He didn’t even do it because he wanted to react against his lefty bohemian upbringing as embodied in his actor dad Stellan Skarsgard.

He is clear on this when I suggest it might have been. “I don’t know about rebellion,” he tells me as we talk almost 20 years later. “I come from a family of anarchists and socialists and pacifists and I was never into guns myself. I wouldn’t say I did it to p*** off dad or anything.”

No, he says, it was something else. “I grew up in south Stockholm in a very urban environment and I wanted that challenge of doing something that was extreme. It’s physically and mentally quite challenging and I was really intrigued by that.”
