When we think of Eva Green, adjectives like “regal,” “evil” and “French” come to mind. Not that she’s wicked in the slightest, of course, but the acclaimed actress just seems to get those uber-dramatic and slightly scary roles—the sort that require elaborate period costuming and an intimidating glare. She’s been seen recently as the ruthless heir to her father’s throne on Starz’s Camelot, donned amazing headgear and romanced Orlando Bloom
One thing to be said about Perfect Sense is that while it was not what I expected (in a good way), it is an original and beautifully crafted film. Starring Ewan McGregor and Eva Green, the film follows scientist Susan (Green) working on finding a cure to a strange disease affecting the whole world. She meets Michael (McGregor), a talented chef working at a restaurant located below her apartment. The
‘Perfect Sense’ is a highly original film portraying the end of the world as we know it, and it forces us to think about something most of us probably never have considered: what it would be like to slowly lose all of our senses. We caught up with the film’s female lead, Eva Green, after ‘Perfect Sense’ was screened at Sundance. Here’s what she had to say about it. Q:
Losing yourself in love makes plenty of sense to Eva Green. The actress compares going blind and deaf in her moody apocalyptic drama “Perfect Sense,” opening Friday, with embarking on a whirlwind romance. “It’s a love story with the background of a worldwide epidemic,” explains the 31-year-old stunner, who steps away from her recent femme fatale roles to play a Scottish epidemiologist trying to stop a mysterious pandemic that’s wiping
Eva Green is best known to audiences as the mysterious femme fatale Vesper Lynd in the James Bond-reviving Casino Royale (although some hot-blooded males might best recall her revealing star turn in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers). Since then she’s appeared mostly in small, thoughtful, and British films, and her latest, Perfect Sense, continues the trend. A small-scale doomsday romance, the film follows Green’s scientist , who falls in love with
She can put “Bond girl extraordinaire” on her resume and describes her character in the forthcoming Dark Shadows as a “bawdy Barbie,” but between those two roles Eva Green is a woman holding on for dear life during a global pandemic in Perfect Sense. In David Mackenzie’s romantic drama, Green plays an epidemiologist struggling to track and contain a series of mass-scale maladies. Acute emotional states like unexplained sadness cause
When it comes to difficult decisions, choosing which of the best-known apocalyptic scenarios—post-nuclear, zombie, viral, alien invasion, natural disasters, the rise of the machines, and so on—you’d rather deal with is probably about as difficult as they come. None of those sound very fun at all. Unless of course you’ve seen too many movies or played too many video games and think that you could flourish in such an environment,

In David Mackenzie’s “Perfect Sense,” which premiered at Sundance last year, “Casino Royale’s” Eva Green plays a scientist who falls in love with Ewan McGregor whilst discovering a worldwide epidemic. The disease, which is “so powerful they don’t even have time to give it a
Tim Burton is one busy fella. Not only is the director putting the finishing touches on the big-screen adaptation of Dark Shadows, but he’s also helming a stop-motion, 3D expansion of his short Frankenweenie and serving as executive producer on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. MTV caught up with Burton and got the details on the projects he’s working on this year. He said that not every member of the Dark
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ 300 prequel hasn’t found its male star yet, but the movie is zeroing in on its female lead. Warner Bros. Eva Green has entered negotiations to play Artemisia in the movie, which is currently working with the title 300: Battle of Artemisia. Noam Murro (Smart People) is directing. The epic follow-up to 2006’s Gerard Butler action pic 300 sees the Persian king-turned-god Xerxes lead an
