    Lame. But thanks for at least keeping the post about the movie and the people that are actually IN it.

  • Alex’s few sloppy seconds

    HA HA HA He is just the groom. Big deal.

  • Celia

    Hot! Glad to see Kirsten is making a comeback.

  • Sylvester Malone

    I wish Kiefer Sutherland would do more mainstream movies. He has done some great films in his time and shouldn’t just be remembered for 24 and playing Jack Bauer. He was huge to me long before 24 began. He is an underrated actor. So, I hope that he does more movies with more leading roles, tries to reach his full potential as an actor and tries to win an Oscar.

    since when kirsten dunst has boobs? lol

  • ENR

    Alex is the only reason I’ll be seeing this movie. Well, that and the fact that it’s a Lars Von Trier movie. But mainly Alex.

  • caxposed

    Ooh, this looks promising. The last Kiki film I saw (“All Good Things”) was pretty good, so hopefully this one will be just as good, or possibly even better.

  • Rhonda

    It looks interesting, definitely not your cookie cutter movie.

  • Rhonda

    LOL thumbs down for saying it looks like an interesting movie….ok then.

  • Hans

    It was a good movie, wasnt expecting alex to be in so many scenes, nice surprise.

  • no kon tiki film for alex

    well atleast alex is smiling in this film even though it is only for the film, that’s more than we ever get when he is with GF KATE WORTHLESS!

    and alex is no longer being considered for Kon Tiki (wheather it is down to TB filming schedule?)
    twitter via @skarsgardnews
    alex on kon tiki “he let the project go”

    I really do hope alex has some rumor projects in the works, I have heard nothing.
    however his brother gustav has scored a part in the movie. well done gustav, I have always found gustav is taken more serious as an actor than alex!

    Gustaf Skarsgård lands role in Kon-Tiki!
    “according to producer, no longer current, the choice finally fell on a Norwegian actor”
    web • 7/04/11 6:51 PM

    Gustaf will be in the new “Kon-Tiki” movie, he will play Swedish Bengt Danielsson, says dad Stellan Skarsgard as VG met him in Trondheim in connection with Kosmorama Festival Monday.

    Bengt Danielsson was the only Swedish aboard Heyerdahl’s “Kon-Tiki.” He was an anthropologist and was the expedition’s translator since he was the only one on board who spoke Spanish. Danielsson died in 1997, 75 years old.

    The film’s producer Aage Aaberge says he can neither confirm nor deny the news Skarsgård’s participation. It can not Skarsgård’s agent Agency:

    - You will follow, next week we know more, “said Aleksandra Mandic agent firm in Plant Haber / Source / Mandic.


    Gustaf Skarsgård is currently topical cinema in Norway, as punishment ange in one of Stalin’s Gulag camps in Siberia, “The Way Back.” 30-year-old made his first small film role that is already nine years old in 1989.

    Since then he has been involved in include the blockbusters “Arn” and the comedy hit “Patrik 1.5″. “Kon-Tiki” is his first major role in a Norwegian film. He had a small role in Torun Lian’s “Not nude” from 2004. Gustaf therefore follows in dad’s footsteps Stellan, who has a number of Norwegian films on the resume, most recently with the acclaimed “A very kind man.”

    BECOME BIG MOVIE: Kon-Tiki team with Bengt Danielsson number two from the left. He is flanked by Thor Heyerdahl, Erik Hesselberg Torstein Raaby, Herman Watzinger, and Knut Magne Haugland.Photo: AP

    Secrecy surrounding who will play the main roles have been mostly of the “Kon-Tiki,” directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.The names are not yet released, but the casting should be as near as clear.

    Speculation has been around a long time who will play the main role of Thor Heyerdahl. Gustaf Skarsgård’s brother, “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard (34), was long highly topical for the role, and handsome are photographed at a cafe in Los Angeles while he read the script for “The Kon-Tiki.”

    He is, according to producer Aage Aaberge no longer current, and director Joachim Rønning has confirmed that the choice finally fell on a Norwegian actor

    - Heyerdahl will be speaking Norwegian in the film. It has been decided, “said Joachim Rønning the AP in December.

    All the actors in “Kon-Tiki” presented at a press conference at the Kon-Tiki Museum on Tuesday 12 Bygdøy April.

    The plot of “Kon-Tiki” takes place in 1946-47, and is based on the expedition, Thor Heyerdahl led to confirm his theories about the migration in the Pacific. The film will have a budget of around 90 million.

  • @ Sylvester Malone

    I agree. Keifer was in so many fantastic movies: Lost Boys, Stand By Me, Flatliners, The Vanishing…I hope this film reignites his movie career.

  • Hoody

    @Rhonda: True.

  • Cafélady

    I will see this movie, definitely.
    Because, there are at least 3 good reasons for watching it;
    1. it’s an Lars von Trier movie; 2. Alexander Skarsgård plays in it ; 3. Stellan Skarsgård plays in it !!

  • JeffH

    I can’t WAIT for this. All of Lars’s movies are fantastic and this looks great and so different!

  • Duh

    That looks weird and interesting. I gotta see it… when it’s on DVD

  • me0007

    Finally, an interesting film!

  • Nelly Fang

    I wonder if Alex regrets his choices now, he will forever be marked as that guy that played a vampire. True Blood has overshadowed Generation Kill, and it was GK that garnered him the most praise for acting ability (TV wise) True Blood is ruining his career, though it probably seemed like a good idea at the time.

  • kiki

    @Nelly Fang:

    LOL!! Really? True Blood is ruining his career? ! He has more fans now than ever and his acting on TB is always praised. You must be one of thse nasty Purse forum women, always seeing the worse in Alex and always wishing him to fail. All because he dared to date a thin woman.

  • Nelly Fang

    @kiki: I carry a wallet, Sweetness.

  • kiki

    LOL!! No I pretty sure you’re a member of that forum. At least own your hate.

  • Whatever

    Love this trailer and wish we would read much more on his work than his girlfriend. He looks great and I hope he’ll be in Cannes.

  • Okay

    I’m sorry Kiki, but can you read? I’ve lurked on tPF for months and they are fans of Alex with only good things to say about his career and acting. Some may not be fans of his GF, but who is? tPF is not a negative fan site, so stop perpetuating the hate. Jeez.

  • kiki

    Well nobody has to believe me. Just go to the forum and read the messages.

  • Renee

    Umm, I too lurk daily at tPF. That is a mostly fun but odd group of ladies. They mean well and in no way haters . My only issue is that they TRULY believe they know, for a fact, things about him that no one but ACTUAL friends and family could possibly know, I find that aspect to be very disturbing. Other than that, they are quite harmless.

  • Renee

    They don’t always have good things to say. They kinda have that Kathy Bates, “I’m your # one fan and I know what is best for you” vibe going on. LOL! But no, they are not haters and I get I lot of enjoyment from that form.
    I do understand what you are saying. I just think you are being too hard on them.

  • Okay

    I agree with you on that!

    Kiki – There is a poster or two who aren’t big fans of his anymore, but they usually agree on the acting/career aspect, which is what should really matter. If the gossip sites stopped making a big deal about who he was dating or if he would just act like someone whose been dating the same person for over a year, then much of the hate/speculation would stop.

  • Okay

    I just want to add – how adorable does Kristen look and who doesn’t live the sweet Alex overbite smile? I might actually see this movie …

  • Nah

    All the real haters/crazies are at World of Skarsgard.

  • Okay

    Oops – that’s Kirsten (not Kristen) and love not live.

  • Renee

    ME TOO!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Alex’s overbite.

  • seeshay

    movie looks good and will add cred to Alex’s acting resume being LVT. I don’t feel that bad about Kon Tiki – I thought the earlier one The Elephant sounded better anyway. Maybe they’ll bring that one back. And maybe it was mutual — Norwegian financing wanted Norwegain actor? and Alex didn’t want to commit to something scheduled to shoot for that long?. Poor guy is probably tired after TB season. Maybe he should go to Sweden and take a couple months off.

  • Raveonette

    I love Kiki, she is going to own this. I also love the two Charlottes, Gainsbourg and Rampling.

  • Okay

    @Nah: Been at WoS too. They’re not Alex haters either. Frankly, they get a undeserved bad rap. KB haters – yes, but you can find them here, there, and everywhere. KB haters are not exactly a minority among not only Alex fans, but in general. Years in the making.

  • TPF = The p00p forum


    Are you kidding “only good things to say about Alex” nice try Joe, LMAO! They may pretend drooling over Alex pics but they always dig the dirt and speculate usually negative tone. The P00p “ladies” (obviously you included) definetly are NOT his fans but mostly Joe Manganiello’s fans. JM fans has also created few twitter and fb accounts where they bash ALEX himself not Eric Northman, his TB character.

    Ok, I was bit harsh, maybe there are some 3-4 real Alex fans left on the board, who knows but anyway you can bash Alex as much as you like there but if you critizize JM or defend Alex you’ll get banned. ALL the real fans have left the forum long time ago. But that’s ok because it IS A GOSSIP FORUM NOT a fan forum! At least Alex is intrigued by the haters too. His has the most threads on the purse forum and they are the most viewed threads too. I call it charisma.

    About True Blood, I think it may harm his career in a long run with all the fuss with sex, violence and nudity at the story’s expence. First season was good but it has gone downhill really fast. It’s been such a dissapointment. Alan Ball and the other writers should put it right in the next season but maybe it is too late…

  • anybody?anybody?

    First, I think JJs readers should be able to come to the comment section without you guys bringing the drama from other forums and making the environment toxic. Enjoy THIS conversation lol
    Second, wtf??!? I might just watch this movie to solve the question of what it’s ABOUT! haha I actually really like what I saw of the cinematography. I love movies like that. And is it just me or is this a more serious role than Dunst is used to? Anyways, I’ll def check it out when it’s here!!

  • vanessa

    interesting!! will def see it for alex!

  • Toots

    The trailer is weird, but interesting. Is this film going to be mass marketed, or will it be a limited release? I’ll see it, but I don’t think I’ll be running right out on opening day…

    So, Alex didn’t get Kon-Tiki. I can understand them wanting to go with a Norwegian for the lead. I do hope he has some really great scripts to fall back on and that he makes smart choices on the ones he goes for. I do hope that people are overlooking his lapse in judgement when it comes to his love connection and the foolishness that ensues. It would be sad if the are they/aren’t they stuff is starting to affect him being sent quality scripts. I don’t believe there are that many well written parts being doled out in HW right now either. That’s why you have all these reboots like Total Recall and Robocop…I mean, do they really have to go back to the 80′s for source material because everything else has been done already? Come on, as consumers we should demand better. At least Melancholia looks unique.

  • Marieme

    This is a bizarre trailer but I still want to see the film. Lars is anything but boring, plus I love both Dunst and obvs ASkars. The idea of a strange planet looming is super intriguing. I have my ticket money ready!

  • Cafélady

    I’m sure, Alex will have other opportunities in the future, if not in that “Kon-Tiki” than in other (hopefully) good movies…sooner or later director’s and producers will realize how talented he is and not only giving him roles because he is handsome or hot (which he is definitely, no doubt!).

    As for True Blood; I think TB gave him the opportunity to get more attention (for him as an actor) of a bigger audience than the other projects before…but in my book, qualitative GK was the beginning…and proved in the end that he definitely can more than only to be an handsome guy and so on…sure he has had some roles with Quality before…but only in sweden (so far I know)…not international…

  • CB

    @TPF = The p00p forum:

    Hmmm, that’s interesting. Sometimes I read comments of SOME of the TPF posters and think, “why are they even talking about Alex, are they even his fans?” It’s so weird. Now it kind of makes sense .

  • takeofftheblinders

    Check out the purse forums most recent comments about their beloved Alex…ripping apart his teeth. Yep, they worship him all right! Anyone who thinks they are not full of venom is BLIND. They also do not just rip on his GF, they rip on his acting skills.


    Why do people go to forums or sites they disagree with? Seems like a colossal waste of time to read these comments and analyze them. Then you go to another site and post about how much you despise them Just says that you need something to b*tch about. How pathetic. Why don’t you read a book, do yoga or something positive instead of looking for contention? Then again, some people feed on misery and strife.

    Seriously, the p00p forum? How old are you? Sounds like something a 10 year old would say.

  • Sally

    It’s like a trainwreck. All those women having meltdowns every time they see a picture of KB and Alex together.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not Kate’s fan at all. I just don’t think that all this drama is necessary .mean we don’t even know if they’re de facto a couple anymore.

  • BG

    Sounds to me like the Yuku girls are deflecting heat they got last week for being crazy. Instead of giving tPF a hard time, how ’bout focusing on Alex and this movie?
