As the main villainess of the video game film adaptation, the Swedish-Canadian Billions actress made sure to arrive in one of the biggest looks of the night.

Not based on a true story, the movie is inspired by the video game series of the same name by Midway Games. The science fiction monster film was filmed in Chicago, Illinois, and at Third Rail Studios at Doraville, Georgia.
“It was something different, I’ve never played a villain before and I love a good challenge – this definitely was a challenge,” Malin told The Evening Standard about her role as Claire Wyden, the CEO of Energyne responsible for the infection and mutation of George, Ralph, and Lizzie with the mutagenic serum for Project: Rampage.
“I had to try to not smile, to not be friendly, to not be nice. But that was quite a freedom to drop into something completely different. It was actually easier to get into character as it’s so different to how I normally am,” she added.

And what a look it was, all right. Malin’s black Johanna Ortiz dress had head-high ruffles on one shoulder, a one-shoulder style on the other, a twisted bodice, a flesh-baring belly cutout, a high waist, and an eruption of tiered ruffles on the flamenco skirt.

The blonde beauty piled on even more pieces to her already costume-y look and accessorized with an Emm Kuo “Guggenheim” pearl-and-marble clutch and Le Silla “Borgia” studded-strap black-velvet pumps.

Malin might’ve overdone her “Rampage” premiere look but she did look like was having a lot of fun in it. And that’s what matters, right?
