A trailer for the upcoming sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday? (aka Seven Sisters) has been released and can be seen below. The film is opening in French theaters on August 23rd and Netflix will be streaming the film in the US, although they haven’t given an exact release date for that just yet.
Directed by Tommy Wirkola (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Dead Snow), What Happened to Monday? stars Noomi Rapace, Glenn Close, and Willem Dafoe.
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home.
