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.

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 15 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!

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.
