Green’s Artemisia is an instant icon: hard as nails, brilliant brain, sexy as hell, and bloody bonkers. When she’s not scheming, she’s fighting — and her sword-in-each-hand technique is enough to make Butler look like a wuss. “She’s the most ruthless character I’ve ever played,” nods Green. “I always say, ‘I can’t go darker,’ but I always do! She’s like a man. That’s what I liked about it. I don’t like ‘girlfriend rules’ and all that shit.”

These are admittedly small bits, but offer cool new looks at the Athenians and the Persians who will fight it till the death much like the Spartans and the Persians in the first film. These videos are a few seconds long each and appear as “intros” to the various sections on the official website. I have embedded them all below for your express enjoyment so that you don’t have to navigate from section to section on the official site. They contain no sound.
The action here looks grittier than the highly stylized one presented in 300. It looks more rain soaked, blood drenched and mud splattered and there seem to be more soldiers fighting on either side in bigger battle fields (and on ships of course). It also looks like Sullivan Stapleton, in a departure from his predecessor Gerard Butler, will use the bow and arrow too to slaughter the Persians rather than just a sword and spear. Bring on the action!

Apparently, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has a new title. While at American Film Market 2013, Bloody Disgusting snapped a photo of some Frank Miller teaser art for the film, with a slightly altered title:
Now known as Sin City: A Dame to Die For, the Robert Rodriguez-Frank Miller film features Josh Brolin taking over the role of Dwight from Clive Owen and getting entwined with Ava Lord (Eva Green). Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert will also appear. It opens Aug. 22, 2014.

Araki is now in the editing stage of his next film, “White Bird in a Blizzard,” which stars Shailene Woodley as a girl whose mother disappears.
“That’s really the movie I’m very focused on at the moment,” Araki said. “It’s a period piece, it has an amazing soundtrack, it’s set in the late ’80s, so it has all of my favorite music in it. And the cast is really amazing.”
“It’s very kind of a Gregg Araki movie, but it’s also kind of got a lot of other things that I think will surprise some people,” he said. “I can’t wait for it to be finished. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
