The main difference between Rapace and Mara is that the former actually got to finish her journey with the character, following up THE GIRL WITH THE...

Rooney Mara to star as fictional pop-singer in Vox Lux with new music by Sia

I like Rooney Mara . I thought she did a great job as Lisbeth Salander in the otherwise unnecessary GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO remake, and even made a lasting impression in her one, devastating scene (minus quick flashbacks) in HER. After the disappointing failure of PAN though (where she played Tiger Lily), it looks like she's jumping on to more intriguing...

Set Visit: We step into the magical world of Laika's Kubo & the Two Strings!

It all started ten years ago when production began on a wonderful little film called CORALINE. Released in 2009, this inspired fable is a gorgeous example of stop motion animation. It featured incredible characters and a wonderfully compelling story. It’s a tale that holds up especially well all these years later. In fact, this has been a tradition for the creative team at Laika....
