During the midst of the London Film Festival, we saw many films and few stood out as much as Earthquake Bird, a strange, sensual psychological thriller starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander. We had the pleasure of speaking to the Swedish actress, as well as her supporting lead Naoki Kobayashi and director Wash Westmoreland.

Vikander discusses her time spent shooting in Japan, and the joys in picking up skills as a performer. She also speaks about her career post-Oscar success, and her thoughts on working with Ben Wheatley on Tomb Raider 2. Meanwhile, with Kobayashi and Westmoreland we spoke about a dance scene from the movie we’re calling iconic, and what it was like working so closely with Vikander.

Watch both interviews in their entirety below:


A young female expat is suspected of murder after her friend goes missing in the wake of a tumultuous love triangle with a handsome local photographer.

Earthquake Bird is out in cinemas on November 1st and on Netflix on November 15th
