Alexander Skarsgard & Brit Marling: 'The East' Premiere!

Alexander Skarsgard & Brit Marling: 'The East' Premiere!

Alexander Skarsgard and Brit Marling hit the red carpet at the premiere of their film The East held during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival at the Eccles Center Theatre on Sunday (January 20) in Park City, Utah.

The 36-year-old actor was also joined by co-stars Ellen Page, Toby Kebbell, and Aldis Hodge, as well as director Zal Batmanglij.

Brit and Zal, who have worked together in the past, co-wrote the film together! The story centers on contract worker (Marling) who is tasked with infiltrating an anarchist group, only to find herself falling for its leader.

Earlier in the day, the cast attended a portrait session.

FYI: Brit is wearing a Proenza Schouler outfit with Tod’s boots.

30+ pictures inside of Alexander Skarsgard and Brit Marling at the premiere…

  • Marlene

    Love all the Alex posts. He looks really good, rested and healthy. Brit looks so lovely. Ellen is a cutie as usual.

  • Iris

    There is no need to summarize the plot of this movie in every post about Alex.

  • Canuck

    Ellen looks like she’s about 4’9″ standing next to Alex.

  • Canuck

    Oh oh. Moderation, not sure why. I said that Ellen Page looks about 4 foot 9 standing next to Alex.

  • Lawrence

    Hello sexy Alex!.

  • kingkayski

    He really looks like a real vampire here,so hot!

  • Whycantipost

    There are only attractive people in this movie I guess xD Brit looks very pretty,in a sweet, innocent and elfish way. She should be in LotR.

  • ND

    He does look good. But are the sunglasses in that one picture supposed to be a joke?

  • Mmmm
  • ladybug

    @ND: Probably, as he’s not seen with them in any other pic at the actual premiere. The premiere took place in the afternoon, so he probably had them with him as he’d been outside.

  • karl

    3 some much?

  • Music Fan

    Wow… it has been a while… so I’m guessing she is a keeper this Brit lady?
    I just saw a pic of him holding her leg or something…all I’m saying she has my vote…if its true of course.

  • ladybug

    @Music Fan: He was also very cuddly with Ellen, but I doubt he’s with either one. Highly doubt he’s with either one.
    With the exception of the ex, he’s usually a pretty flirty/touchy/feely guy.

  • Tweet

    Ha ha funny canoodling with Ellen page good on ya girl, but that guy needs to understand friendly canoodling. :)

    Yeah, probably wasn’t canoodling with either Brit or Ellen. Or Zal.

    @actors: they’re probably not dating, but if they were why would you object?

  • ladybug

    And we now have a trailer:

    http://www.heyuguys.co.uk/the-east-trailer-teaser-poster/

    Zal Batmanglij’s The East has officially had its world premiere at Sundance out in Park City, and the first reviews have been immensely promising for his follow-up to his debut last year, Sound of My Voice.

    Fox Searchlight have already acquired the film’s distribution rights in North America, and now a fascinating first trailer has debuted over at Apple. Following up from the handful of images we’ve seen so far, it gives us an excellent first full look at the film.

  • bree

    I think they just were asked by the photographer to pose like that (Skarsgard & Brit), they play love interests in the movie after all, in the pictures outside they look normal. And with Ellen they’re just friends as well.

  • karl

    @bree:

    This is nothing compared to what they do in private… all night long…

  • actors and normal people

    @karl:
    You are such an idiot,sure you are a fat and ugly man doing just nothing.

  • karl

    @actors and normal people:

    wow, wow… now I feel hurt…

  • Music Fan

    Well I don’t know hey Ladybug… but in my culture when a man holds the leg or knee of a woman the way he does with Brit, that show alot of intimacy… He didn’t even show this much affection and cannodling with the ” Creature” (lol i had to…). She has my vote.lol. no but seriously she is gorgeous and she has that certain quality. I wouldn’t mind at all. As long as he is happy…

  • actors and normal people

    @karl:
    You should be

  • actors and normal people

    I saw many pictures with her and the director together,both of them have my vote if they are couple.

  • ladybug

    @Music Fan: Alex is very touchy feely, so that gets over interpreted, as it were, a lot.

    And as already mentioned, some of this extra touch-feely stuff is because in the movie Brit’s character falls for his character. And his character had previously been involved Ellen’s character, so some of that does get played up for film promotion. And they genuinely like each other, so it doesn’t seem forced or fake.

    @actors and normal people, Zal and Brit have been friends since college. Don’t think there’s anything romantic about their relationship.

  • actors and normal people

    @ladybug:
    Thanks for clear up.From Alex and Zal.

  • Proof still needed

    Unless I see a pic of Brit and Alex couply & sightings after the festival is over then yeah they have hid there relationship well for how many weeks/ months
    But so far no reports from fans / gossip mongers Of said couply behaviour. It’s all hearsay from fans over a few flirt harmless poses
    But I have no probes with Brit as a potential GF for Alex , it would be an EFFIN 100% gold upgrade from the usual trash he takes to bed

  • ladybug

    @Proof still needed: I don’t think anyone is really taking the ‘he and Brit are a couple’ jokes seriously. A lot of Tumblr sites are joking about it, but don’t actually believe it’s true.

    @Music Fan: Alex is touchy-feely, but he has nothing on our current Vice President:

    “Yes, Joseph R. Biden Jr. gives a lot of stump speeches.

    But, no, that is not the most indelible part of his campaign style.

    Whenever his motorcade, with the Secret Service and the flashing lights, makes an unannounced stop at a simple diner, coffee shop or Dairy Queen, the vice president of the United States moves in close — very close.

    Outside the Airport Diner here on Saturday, Mr. Biden shook Samantha Mullin’s hand while stroking her left forearm. He placed a hand on one shoulder. He put his other hand on her other shoulder. As he looked into her eyes, he touched her cheek.

    The encounter lasted no more than 30 seconds, and Mr. Biden was on to the next voter…”

  • tiff

    @bree: Yeah in the pics outside they are not even next to each other, he’s next to Ellen bc they are friends irl, same as Britt and the other dude

  • actors and normal people

    @tiff:
    That pic was also very flirty.Alex with Ellen look & Brit with Zal look.

  • actors and normal people

    @ladybug:
    Think that is why no one believes it,the last picture of today show Alex with Ellen and Brit with Zal.
    Still thanks for say that none are dating,so maybe you are right.Is promo pics and they were ask to pose in such way.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: #31 She (TS) had right somehow with it – it’s a look that we do not get to see often from him…and I see, they had a better wig for him than in TB S1…LoL
    From what I could read about the synopsis of the movie – and now also have seen in the trailer- it’s a movie who asks the right and important questions…definitely a movie that deserves attention. And I’m looking forward to see the movie. And, of course, to see Alex in this role – according to Björne’s statement; it’s his best perfomance of his career up to now.

    @Cafélady: Strangely, that comment has now gone into moderation, some two hours after it originally posted.

    I’ll repost a link to the pic:

    http://marvelandwhimsy.tumblr.com/post/41125495420

    Yes, TS said he was unrecognizable, and so did Alex, but the first stills and the trailer didn’t show anything unrecognizable.

    So Bjorne now has an Instagram account? I guess this would be the unofficial/official Alex Instagram account, since since Bjorne’s his right-hand man.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: …?!? Sorry ladybug, no clue what happened – but it seems like that your post (on what I’ve answered) is away…?!? (It’s not #31 anymore…)…but I talk about this pic (when this is really a picture of “The East”…):

  • Patricia

    Give it 5 and Alex will be hooking up with Brit Marling for extra publicity to banish the gay rumors again. They need the publicity and she doesn’t seem to mind hamming it up now to get some when it counts. The clocks ticking they know they’re not getting any younger it’s play the game up to it now or bye bye Hollywood relevance.

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: I wonder if it didn’t go into moderation because the twitpic probably wasn’t supposed to be seen, the tweeter is the director for ETOnline, so he may have take a pic during a screening. I don’t know.

    From Zal’s Twitter: Ellen, Alex and Brit get goofy:

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: #37 :)…Ooops…one minute too late, sorry..:)
    Not unrecognizable? Well, I guess TS has exaggerated a bit about this…but as already said; we do not often see him like this way, as in this movie-still/pic….

    Yeah, could be good possible – I guess, since Björne is one of his best friends since childhood days (if not even the best friend – he said once in an interview, that Björne is like a brother to him) it wouldn’t be soo surprisingly if Björne also is -presumably- one of the few people who he trusts. I think, it’s at least possible – that he could be something like an right-h*nd confidant-person for Alex is (in important questions).

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: #40 I also don’t know…but it sounds odd..
    I rather presume it’s because JJ seems to have problems with the moderation system again…at least I tried almost 30 min to come through with my comment #41…and had constantly error warnings…

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: I’m incorrect, the twitpic was a crop from the trailer:

    http://www.etonline.com/movies/129445_Alexander_Skarsgard_The_East_Trailer/index.html

    As for Bjorne, he’s one of Alex’s best friends, and he’s in the industry, though what he actually does here in the States I have no idea. I think since Bjorne goes with Alex to most industry stuff, it’s a way to have an ‘unofficial’ social media presence without Alex having to do it. I think Alex is being truthful in not wanting to have deal with Twitter/Instagram/Facebook.

    @Patricia:

    Obsessive much? You really are posting that homophobic BS on every ASkars thread here (and most probably everywhere else on internet)? Too bad Bill Compton pages are shutting down, billusional old tarts are going to be even more crazy…

  • Whycantipost

    @ismelbeellfanhere:

    I hear a lot about Beeehlll – Northman rivalry, but never actually encountered it.. Where does that happen? (Serious question, I have just never seen something like ‘tsss, Skars is a bad actor, vampire Beehlll is much better’)

  • ladybug

    @Whycantipost: I think it’s just trolls, I think most fans of a TB character can actually differentiate between the actor and the character, even if they don’t like that character. Those who can’t, they troll, apparently.

  • ASM lady was right

    Are you visually or intellectually impaired? If you were such a great fan you pretend to be you’d know. You’ve never visited on discussion boards of IMDB.com, HBO.com, The Vault or any TB related pages? Obviously you and your granny club are only interested in who Alex may or not may bang, because that’s pretty much all what’s going on here.

  • Whycantipost

    @ASM lady was right:

    I hope you are not talking to me, because you are very vile.

    I have read some stuff about Bill/Eric rivalry, but tbh it looked more like trolling. So didn’t take it seriously; it was more screaming matches and childish stuff; comments like ‘OMG Sookie should be with Beehlll, because Alexander Skarsgard SUX as an actor. Not the stuff I call serious rivalry; that’s just trolling.
    Thing I’m talking about is actual discussions about differences in talent between two actors and complete fandoms obsessed with it, and no I have never encountered that. But guess I am visually impaired/dumb.

    Maybe you should do your own research better, because ASM has just posted on her site that she is NOT posting here and someone is pretending to be her. I would buy glasses and learn to read if I were you ;)
