Alexander Skarsgard Gives Good Face At ‘The East’ Premiere

May 21st, 2013 // Leave a Comment

Alexander Skarsgard attended the premiere for his film The East at Sunshine Landmark last night (May 20, 2013) in New York City. He was joined by his co-stars Ellen Page, Brit Marling, Patricia Clarkson and director Zal Batmanglij for the event.

The 36-year-old Swedish-born actor looked dashing as usual, wearing a black button-down and charcoal grey jeans. Be still my heart.

In the film, which officially is released on May 31, Brit Marling stars as an operative, tasked with helping her multi-billion dollar corporation clients fight the anted-up, Occupy-Eco-Terror-esque group of anarchists called The East. 

It is The East‘s plot to get justice for the environment at any cost — a cost mostly paid by the corporations for which Marling’s character Sarah works.

Sarah infiltrates The East’s ranks in order to bring them down from the inside — but things get complicated when she starts to fall for the group’s charismatic leader, Benji (Alexander Skarsgard). Sarah must decide where her allegiance lies: with the man she’s developing feelings for, or the people that pay her salary.
