A Few Words From Us….

Posted by G in Apr 23,2014 with 9 Comments

Dear Friends and Fellow Fans,

We would like to take a bit of your time to talk to you about a few things but first, we’d like to express our deepest gratitude for the support that you’ve been showering our way. You are clearly the greatest fans!

A lot of you have been sending us various Eva Green related articles, clips, pictures, scans,  etc. and you may have noticed that some of them have not been uploaded to EvaGreenWeb.com. This is in part of the sudden influx of materials that are being sent everyday to us. Between the successful release of 300: Rise of an Empire and the much anticipated upcoming premiere of Penny Dreadful, Eva’s prominence has skyrocketed and consequently EGW’s, being the oldest and largest resource for Ms. Green and her career. We greatly appreciate all the contributions that all of you have been sending and we would like to let you know that we do receive them and we will be adding them, with proper credit, to the website as time goes by. Sifting through all of them and uploading them takes time. Everything must be double checked, keeping in mind everything that goes along with such materials: finding the best pieces, fact checking, crediting and following Copyright Laws. If there has been a delay in updating, we apologize for it and be assured that we are doing our best in keeping you updated as fast as we can.

EGW is a non-profit fansite and we, the people who runs it, all have lives outside of EGW. We love working on the website and providing fellow fans the opportunity to follow Ms. Green’s career as close and extensively as it can be. It is both a hobby and a passion. We don’t see it as a job and we would like to keep it this way.

2014 is set to be a great year for Ms. Green. Four films and a television show all in one year is an unprecedented achievement. We’ve never had this busy of a year. With her further prominence, we too must evolve and this is why we have decided to engage more in social media. Our Twitter account has been more active and we are happy to see that interacting with you more has been a success. This recent development in our diversity has not been met with open arms by some of you. There have been doubts if it is the website’s official Twitter account which we find inane. M has done a post about this and there is a link on the sidebar of the website. Our Twitter account is for Eva Green fans who use the Twitter social media platform and would like to directly interact with us. No one is forced to follow us on Twitter. There may be things that are being talked about, posted, retweeted or cleared up there and that is because Twitter is an immediate social media tool. As for the people who still thinks that it’s Ms. Green using the EGW Twitter account, we have nothing to say. We have repeatedly reminded everyone that she is NOT in any social media platform and we would like to reiterate it again: Eva Green DOES NOT have a personal Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, or other social media account. She has stated this in one of our exclusive interviews with her. It is posted on EGW. If the day comes that she has decided to join any social media platform, we would let you know. We have never claimed that we speak for her. We are approved and recognized by Ms. Green herself and her management but we are not her official website.

As for those asking why there are photoshoots or videos missing in our galleries, it is because there are legal and copyright laws behind them which are beyond our control. We respect the law and we make it a point to follow them. There have also been inquiries on why we never post rumors, paparazzi pictures and personal pictures and information on Ms. Green. We have always shied away from such materials as we greatly respect Ms. Green and her family and friends’ privacies. We are not the place to look for with these kinds of materials. We may debunk rumors and release certain information from time to time but this is all because Eva herself, her management and us, deem it necessary.

A lot of you has been suggesting and inquiring about a birthday project for her. We would like to state that we are not doing one. In the ten years of existence of EGW, we have made it a point to post a birthday message on the website on the day itself and we strongly suggest that you post your birthday messages to her (and her twin sister Joy) on that post. Eva checks the website and she would see your messages.

Lastly, we would like to thank you all for all your sweet messages of gratitude and support to us, whether be it via the comments section on the website, via email or through tweets. We read them all and we greatly appreciate them! It is real and respectful fans like you that we find joy and inspiration in continuing to work on the website.  We encourage you to continue to contribute. After all, this is a group effort and you are all part of our growing EGW Family. We have done surprises and contests before wherein fans have won signed pictures and DVDs. We plan to do these kinds of contests again for fun and to show our gratitude to you all for your continued support so keep checking the website. Post a message on the comments section and interact with other Eva Green fans or send us a tweet. We’d love to hear from you!

 

Cheers,

EGW (M, Stef and G)

SXSW 2014: PENNY DREADFUL 1.01 Pilot Review

Posted by G in Apr 19,2014 with 2 Comments

Get a look at Showtime’s upcoming series featuring legendary literary beings like Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and Dracula.

By Katrina Hill

Penny-Dreadful-101

Showtime has gathered up a superb group of actors, directors, and writers to bring to life a new series mixing all kinds of iconic old-school horror creatures in “Penny Dreadful.” The series’ name may strike you as odd, but it refers back to old British publications featuring garish horror serial stories that would only cost – you guessed it! – one penny. While this phrase may have originally represented a form of cheap entertainment, but “Penny Dreadful” is no such thing.

There’s More to “Penny Dreadful” Than Meets the Eye

Posted by Stef in Apr 14,2014 with 12 Comments

There will be blood flowing down the aisles in theaters soon thanks to Eva Green’s menacing turn as the ass-kicking Artemisia in 300: Rise of an Empire; and for fans of the French-born beauty, they’ll get a chance to see even more red come May in her hotly anticipated Showtime horror thriller Penny Dreadful.

In a phone interview Tuesday, Green told me that, while the trailer for the series released last month promises a bloody affair, there’s much more to the show than the clip is letting on.

“The trailer for Penny Dreadful has to have an impact straight-away, so there’s sex and blood in it,” Green told me. “It’s definitely bloody, but there’s also a lot of complex psychology involved with all the characters.”

Created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan, Penny Dreadful is set in the Victorian Era, where such literary icons as Dr. Frankenstein, his monster, Dracula and Oscar Wilde’s age-defying creation Dorian Gray are all woven into a new narrative.

Green plays London psychic Vanessa Ives, who invites the likes of Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) and Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) to “a shadow world full of sex, drugs and monsters of all sorts,” Showtime says.

“All the characters have secrets that make them special and alienate them from society,” Green said. “The show asks the question, ‘Do you want to be normal or not?’”

Penny Dreadful premieres on Showtime May 11. In the meantime, fans will get more than their fill of the gushing red stuff in 300: Rise of an Empire, Green says.

“There’s lots of blood and lots of dead people,” Green says, laughing.

The film, which tells a story parallel to the perilous journey of the 300 Spartans in the 2006 original starring Gerard Butler, opens in theaters and on IMAX screens Friday.

Green is also reteaming with 300 creator Frank Miller when she stars as the “dame” Ava Lord in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” due in theaters Aug. 22.

“Travail” premiere a success

Posted by Stef in Jul 20,2012 with 5 Comments

A big congratulations to Nick (aka Nikos), Raymond Deane, Phill Hammond and everyone else involved in the making of the film Travail. The film premiere was a success and we couldn’t be happier for everyone, especially Nick. It’s not every day one of our very own gets to walk the red carpet of their own film premiere! We wish the filmmakers, cast and crew continued success on this film and the others in the series.

Here are a few photos and some of the feedback the film received which Nick was kind enough to share with us:

Robert LaMonica
Travail was a thought provoking and quite disturbing movie…..riveting performances by Nick and Jamie….all in all “outstanding” see you in Cannes.

Ingredients Callinonme
After viewing the film Travail “Dawn of a New Day” I find that all of the participants gave a gripping performance.

I was truly impressed with the intricate method used by the director developing an appeal to various types of moviegoing experience. There were elements such as gore/violence to make us squeemish & cringe in our seats, romance/lust, deception, action/suspense, as well as some comic …relief, and even a bit of science fiction.

The lead character played by Mr. Nick Dubanos was well executed, I had to refrain from booing at his character from my seat, I was completely caught up in the moment watching the film. – I hands down give this film a Ebert & Roeper’s 2 Thumbs Up.

Kudos to Raymond Deane & Phillip Hammond I look forward to seeing future projects on the Big Screen. I wish continued success to all who were involved -Cheers!

Note regarding our bubble

Posted by Stef in Jun 26,2012 with 4 Comments

Just in case you hadn’t seen the notice we posted on the bubble today, we wanted to post about it here for you as well. Mariana and I will no longer be posting or checking updates via the bubble. Due to our busy summer schedules we don’t have the time to double post both here and the bubble so we’re just going to be making updates here on the site only going forward. If you have any photos, scans, fan art, videos, etc. you’d like to send in, please feel free to send them directly to us at evagreenwebcom@gmail.com and we’ll add them as we make future updates.

We do apologize for this but, as I’m sure you all understand, real life priorities always take precedence over online things and right now we both have a lot to deal with offline so we need to shift our focus a bit. The site will continue to be updated, just maybe not quite as frequently has it has been over the past couple of months. But have no fear, EGW will remain alive and kicking!

Even though we won’t be active members in the bubble anymore you guys are more than welcome to continue posting here for the time being if you like. Do keep in mind though that we will not be checking for any new content you guys might share there so if it’s something that you’d like to see posted on the site in the future, please email it to us at the email address above.

Thanks for joining and continuing to support us and the site. We both really appreciate it. :)

Lastly, the contest is still going on as it’s an EGW initiative. We wrote down your nicknames and will post here on the main site if we need to contact any of you. Good luck to everyone!

Are you an aspiring writer? (Reminder)

Posted by M. in May 13,2012 with Comments Off

I received an email from Ms. Elisa Favreau from StudioCanal on March 20th and this might be really interesting to many of you.

Are you an aspiring writer? This might be your chance! StudioCanal is looking for a brand new novel written by an unknown, unpublished writer. If you wrote an original, unique, interesting, captivating, well-written novel that’s not available on the interwebs or in print, keep reading. Plagiarism won’t be accepted! The novel must be original and you musn’t be a published writer. StudioCanal wants to encourage new writers. They want to adapt and eventually co-produce the best novel in partnerships with small independent production companies from the UK and Italy. Nobody is looking for the new Twilight!

If you think you have a chance, please submit your full name, place of birth, city of residence, resume, synopsis of your novel (they’ll probably receive many submissions that they’ll need to read a synopsis before reading the entire novel), your major inspirations behind the novel, favourite books and authors, what made you want to be a writer, and, finally, a pdf file containing your novel. By submitting your novel, you give you on rights to it, meaning that they’ll belong to the database of StudioCanal now. You may be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. Languages accepted are English, French and Italian.

You must be older than 18.

Your deadline is up until June 1st, but, in case this is a success, the deadline can be extended.

The email you have to use is Elisa Favreau favreau.elisa [REMOVETHIS] @ [REMOVETHIS] gmail.com

All legal stuff, payment and detailed info will be then discussed via them. I’m just passing the news forward.
