Talk about a surprise attack.
Vikander says director Guy Ritchie pulled her aside and whispered that she should hit him. "Guy was like, 'Go over there and slap him,'" she told me at Comic-Con. "I was like, 'Can I?'"
So she did.
"[Armie] got a bit surprised the first time I did it," Vikander said. "The first time I did it, I was like, 'I'm sorry.'"
What transpired is a highly stylized fight between the two in an ostentatious hotel suite. "I think every scene we have in this movie has a certain flair and style to it that really only Guy Ritchie can bring to it," Hammer told me. "Even that scene, it's not just a tussle in a hotel room. It has a great beginning, a great development and a great end."
