    I’m not that excited about Penny Dreadful honestly and this trailer didn’t change my mind…

    By the way, I just saw a whole new batch of photos from 300, on imdb. Eva looks fierce and the movie seems to be better than everyone anticipated, I really hope it does well, both critically and financially.

    For me, Penny dreadful is the only project with Eva in it that I’m actually excited to see. White bird in a blizzard wasn’t such a great film ( or so the reviews say. I haven’t seen the movie, but I really want to, but is so hard to find it). 300 is a little bit to cheesy for me and I’m not a fan of Sin City. I don’t know if this is going to be a good year for Eva. I wished she changed her team.

    @spot You’re welcome. :) You can see the article on their official site.

    There’s some positive critical feedback of Rise of an Empire on twitter – from critics who seem to have seen advance screenings – At least of Eva’s performance. More than I expected. Penny Dreadful also looks far better than I expected, or maybe John Logan is just a good salesman!

    The White Bird in a Blizzard negative reviews are really a bunch of downers but I’m happy and still looking forward to watching it since everybody keeps mentioning that Eva is the only bright side/most positive thing to come out of the film. I’m honestly very intrigued.

    I’m most excited about Penny Dreadful since it’s 1) Created and developed by credible industry people, 2) Eva will be in her ~niche~ so to speak, 3) Eva will certainly get a lot of exposure out of this hence, more people will be able to enjoy her performances and 4) I don’t know about you guys but 8 (or 13?) weeks of new Eva stuffs….I don’t think I have any right to complain (especially if y’all, like me, went through that period of her not doing anything for 1-1 1/2 year :lol: )

    I’m not THAT excited for 300: Rise of an Empire and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For but you can count on me to participate on any chance I can BOW to this Queen. Get them paychecks, exposure and new fans gurl! ;)

    spot, I agree with everything you said. In addition to all of those positives about Penny Dreadful, I’m looking forward to it for another reason. Her last 4 high profile roles actually have been very similar (Camelot, Dark Shadows, 300, and Sin City 2) – all seductive, ambitious straight-up villains. Honestly, it’ll be nice to see her in a role with more to do than play the evil vamp. As positive as those WBIAB reviews sounded, her role sounded a lot like a lot of these recent villain roles. Penny Dreadful will hopefully remind casting directors that she can do a lot more than that.

    @ spot I have a friend who went to the Sundance festival and she told me the movie was bad. She is a big Greg Araki fan and she was really disappointed with this movie. She also told me the audience laughed because of the acting . I still want to see it. To make an opinion out of it.

    Guys, everybody has a outher Movie taste. Everybody enjoy yourself at your personal favourite Eva Movie or TV Series.
    And don’t forget Eva will play in Movies and Series that they would like to. Not what you want or other.
    Don’t argue.

    Cool exchange of opinions here :D
    I haven’t seen White Bird in a Blizzard as well, but like any other Gregg Araki movie you’ll probably either love or hate it. From what I have seen from him, the acting is always over the top and the films are a bit campy overall. Mysterious Skin was the only exception, it was a really sober movie despite the craziness of the plot sometimes. What I think most critics fail to understand when they criticize the acting and say that it is overdone and gaudy, is that sometimes that is way the director wants his actors to perform. The same thing happened with Cracks, in which her character was supposed to be over the top, because Miss G was an act, a façade, an exaggeration of herself.

    Also Eva can play discrete and brooding characters very well, I found Perfect Sense to be a treat because of that. Her character was really sweet and normal, very different from what she had played in the past. Penny Dreadful honestly doesn’t look that different from her previous projects… The Salvation yes.

    Out of all her upcoming projects I’m really excited about Sin City, because I’m a big fan of the first one and Ava Lord is a great character. I just hope Eva gets enough screen time to be able to show that. She was cast fairly late…

    @daphne That’s what my friend who went to Sundance said too. Most people who saw it and read the book didn’t like the fact that Araki changed the ending. I’m still going to see it since I make it a point to see all of her works but of course, to make my own opinion about the whole film.

    @nausicaa Yeah they really are alike on some degree and yes, I do wish that she would venture out more (a comedy wouldn’t hurt! She has some timing!) but I do respect her choices. I think she really likes and feels comfortable playing these dark manipulating villains and SHE DOES excel in it but I don’t want casting directors to see that this all that she can do. I, with all honesty, wish that her team would play out more on the idea of getting her projects that would really make her versatility shine. I mean, a political thriller, a quirky comedy and a straight out epic period film would not be bad at all. She has the face and the acting range to do all these. I wish her team would push more to get their hands on these kinds of scripts and projects because her fans deserves to see more of her versatility on any medium (I’d make the trek to NYC or London just to see her on a play to be honest :p ) and Eva herself deserves more to showcase her acting prowess :D

    @sebastian Nope, we are not arguing. We’re just making some exchanges of opinions and preferences. Just a normal day here in EGW ;) No matter what our opinions and preferences are, we all know and respect that it all comes down to Eva’s choices. As a fans, we all want the best of her and I think it’s just normal to voice out these opinions because who knows if her team (or her! *shriek*) reads these comments then made they will have an idea on what us fans, who has always been here for her and followed her career likes to see more from her.

    @johnny That is very true. Araki has a certain style and it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. I think most of the backlash on Cracks is mainly on the editing and the whole incident about Miss G & Fiamma that a lot of people are not comfortable with. Otherwise, I think it was well-received?

    I like Eva’s acting more whenever she plays those discrete and brooding characters because she has that uncanny ability to act with her eyes and me, as an audience gets it right away. The Dreamers is one exemplary example. As do Perfect Sense and Womb. Although I totally enjoy all her diva and darker characters so much because she’s just hands down good at playing them.

    The Salvation sounds really interesting. I’m most excited to see it on all of her upcoming movies but we know very little of it. I wish we’d know more soon. The way that I understand it, she gets her tongue cut off in it right? So that should be very interesting acting-wise. Not to mention she’s acting alongside Mads Mikkelsen again :)
