You’re not seeing double, Rooney Mara has a few siblings to contend with in the trailer for the Netflix Original film, What Happened to Monday, which you can view below.
Directed by Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola, What Happened to Monday stars Noomi Rapace as siblings named after the seven days of the week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. William Dafoe stars as the septuplets grandfather and Glenn Close as Nicolette Cayman in a story which set in the future where the world has adopted a one child per family policy, to avoid detection from the evil Child Allocation Bureau, fronted by Close, Rapace plays a deadly game of cat and mouse.
The trailer, whilst somewhat gimmicky with a bunch of melted cheese slumped on top, has Rapace constantly on the run from the child allocation enforcers and she will stop at nothing to make sure her and her seven siblings come out alive – But you’ll be hard pressed to figure out which one is fighting for their lives at any given point.

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…
