MAMA ended up at number one at the box office this weekend taking in $28.1 million over the weekend. This bodes well for Nikolaj. Yeah, I know people will likely say that it was Jessica Chastain that pulled in those bucks, but with Nikolaj’s profile since GAME OF THRONES I would suspect there are more than enough Jaime Lannister fans out there to have made some dent in that figure. But hey our guy is getting noticed. With OBLIVION due out in April and GAME OF THONES due back in March I’d say Nikolaj has nothing to be ashamed of.
And the gifts just keep giving. I have a featurette on MAMA where producer Guillermo del Toro talks about his reasons for casting Nikolaj in the dual roles of Lucas and Jeffrey. Nikolaj also talks about Lucas’ search for his nieces and what was found in the forest.
I know there haven’t been many updates for a while, but with GAME OF THRONES about to begin its third season on 31 March 2013 there haven’t been many things to report. Nikolaj does, however, have a new film. I have an interview with Nikolaj where he does talk about his new film MAMA due out in theatres January 18th. Nikolaj talks about the dual characters he plays in twins Jeffrey and Lucas. He gives some information on the plot of the film and what it was like working with director Andrés Muschietti and producer Guillermo del Toro.
