By Aleigha Spinks Eva Green Sorry, ladies! It is the year of Eva Green! This French beauty is WERKIN’ in 2014, pumping out four films and a hit TV show! Although Green tries to stay out of the eye of the public, no one can help but take notice of this woman being everywhere! ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” was just released in the U.S. this past Friday,
By Jason Shawhan A Dame to Kill For is the sequel to 2005’s Sin City in the most literal way. Thematically, it’s part of a chain of adolescent, hyperviolent misogynist fantasies going back to 1980’s Heavy Metal: hard-boiled men who know the languages of violence and betrayal, and an assortment of noble virgins and streetwise whores to pepper the narrative with occasional frissons to distract from the murder and double-crossing.
Our friend Thomas Perillon of Le Bleu du Miroir recently got to interview The Salvation’s director Kristian Levring and its main protagonist and Eva Green co-star Mads Mikkelsen in Paris. Here are what they have said about Eva and her participation in the film: THOMAS PERILLON: Mads Mikkelsen was an obvious choice for the main part. What about Eva Green who probably has the most complex and enigmatic part of the
Eva Green Being pretty and talented is barely enough to cause a ripple in Hollywood. And if you want to really make waves, to take roles for the art instead of just the paycheck, you need to be a part of that magical Five Percent—that group with a maddening alchemy of good looks, preternatural skill, and mysterious intangibles that elevate them above us mere mortals. Eva Green is one of those people.
Eva Green first made a splash as an actress by appearing nude in Bernardo Bertolucci’s sexually-charged 2003 film, The Dreamers. Now, just over a decade later, the former Bond girl (she played Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale) is again making waves as the oft-naked femme fatale in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to the original 2005 film. Even the poster for the film was banned
Here are some more reviews on Eva’s performance in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Click on the Source links for the full film review. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is more low-key than the first Sin City, but it’s also a more enjoyable romp thanks to another grand Eva Green star turn….For reasons I cannot entirely justify, I was less annoyed by both factors this time around.
By Alison Willmore How the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For actress walked away with the year’s most macho sequels. Most of the thrill of the original Sin City is gone in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s follow-up to their innovative 2005 graphic-novel adaptation, set in a stylized, digitally engineered world of black and white with splashes of color. The movie, which floundered at the box office
By Susan Wloszczyna “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” did little to add sizzle to the late-summer box office this past weekend after collecting a slim $6.5 million and dismissive reviews. But it’s not from lack of trying on the part of Eva Green. This casting addition to the stylized babes-brutes-and-bullets sequel based on Frank Miller’s lurid comic-book series steamed up more than a few critics’ 3-D glasses as
Much as she did with 300: Rise Of An Empire, however, Eva Green holds up the mid-section with great gusto. Pouting with just the right amount of vamp and camp, Green’s titular dame pushes this Sin City firmly into farce where it belongs. As a seductress extraordinaire, Green is having fun, which is more than can be said for the sour-faced fellows in her thrall. Watching her play the victim and
By Emily Zemler Eva Green is impressively terrifying in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In the film, out August today, the French actress embraces the role of Ava Lord, a dangerous femme fatale set on revenge and murder. It’s an impressive and powerful performance from Green, who also recently appeared in 300: Rise of an Empire and currently stars on Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. The role also meant that Green spent much

Of greater interest in any event is anything and everything involving Ava (Green), a spider woman so fatally gorgeous and seductive that no man can resist her. …….Pulp and noir were often built on the beautiful shoulders of such characters as Ava, and the main
By Kyle Buchanan “You cannot defeat the Goddess,” says one character in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. “She cannot die.” He’s referring to Ava Lord, the seductive black widow who gives the film its title, and when she’s played by Eva Green, who can blame him for using heavenly superlatives? There’s always been something otherworldly about Green, who first impressed (and undressed) in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, won best Bond
