Posted by Stef in Mar 23,2012 with 6 Comments

Warner Bros. has updated their release calendar, announcing 300: Battle of Artemisia (which is rumored to soon receive a new title) for August 2, 2013.

A sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300, in turn based on the graphic work by Frank Miller, will be directed by Noam Murro and is slated to star Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton and Jamie Blackley. The film is expected to tell, in part, the story of Greek General Themistocles, who lead Athens against Persian invaders in a battle that played out simultaneously with the Battle of Thermopylae (depicted in the first film).

Green plays the title role of Artemisia while Stapleton has been cast in the lead role. Blackley plays Calisto, who is inspired by his father to lead a band of soldiers to war.

The release date puts the film up against Columbia Pictures’ Smurfs 2 and Dean Parisot’s comic book sequel, RED 2.

Eva Green talks Dark Shadows with Total Film

Posted by Stef in Mar 17,2012 with Comments Off

Dark Shadows released a trailer to near-unanimous applause yesterday, and if it has left you hungry to know more about Tim Burton’s latest, look no further than the new issue of Total Film magazine.

We went on set of the gothic soap opera, and you can read a full report in the new issue.

To tide you over though, here are some tidbits from our chat with Eva Green who makes her Burton debut as Angelique, one of the most seductive screen witches in some time.

On her character, Green told us: “Tim never real treated her like a ‘baddie’ baddie. She’s kind of a damaged character. I think I could identify with her because all the bad things she does comes from the incredible love she has for Barnabas, who broke her heart.

“She’s a great character: very sarcastic, very irreverent, a great, dark sense of humour. I called her a ‘ballsy Barbie’.”

And when we asked about working with Johnny Depp, Green said: “He’s a gentleman. He’s intense in a nice way – he has very intense eyes in this film. They see right through you.

“He’s not afraid of taking risks, you know… He’s not afraid about going over the top.”

How Eva Green Made Perfect Sense

Posted by Stef in Feb 06,2012 with 7 Comments

It’s a vision of the end of the world unlike anything we’ve seen before. Perfect Sense, directed by David Mackenzie, takes place in a world struck by a mysterious disease that feverishly knocks out the senses, one by one, from the human race. This is the backdrop for the love story of Susan (Eva Green), a wounded-in-love epidemiologist, and Michael (Ewan McGregor), the chef in the restaurant downstairs from her apartment who occasionally bums smokes off her and admires from afar. Together, they navigate the new world, struggling to stick together as society is crumbling around them.

Interview spoke with Eva Green about the normalcy of her character, the gallows humor of biologists and epidemiologists, and her electric character in the upcoming Tim Burton film, Dark Shadows.

CRAIG HUBERT: Initially, what interested you in the character of Susan?

EVA GREEN: I thought, first of all, that it was a very romantic movie, very sentimental; a thought-provoking film. Susan is a nice character, kind of damaged, her heart is broken and she doesn’t want to fall in love. It was a nice love story.

Lucky interview with Eva Green

Posted by Stef in Feb 06,2012 with Comments Off

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 in the Crusades-set Kingdom of Heaven and entranced us as a powerful witch in the fantasy flick The Golden Compass. Of course, she has also notably kicked butt as a Bond girl (in Casino Royale).

We recently got to chat with Green about her current role as a scientist investigating a mysterious disease in the very modern, no-costumes-necessary Perfect Sense, which opens today. It’s a far cry from those femme fatale roles that Green is so known for, yet her trademark intensity is palpable in every frame. “There is a bit of a darkness in the background, but Perfect Sense is an uplifting movie and a metaphor for falling in love,” says Green. Working with Ewan McGregor, who plays the the chef she falls for, wasn’t bad either. “He’s an instinctive actor. He’s a beautiful person and doesn’t behave like a big star. He’s down-to-earth and charming and pure.”

ELLE interview with Eva Green

Posted by Stef in Feb 06,2012 with Comments Off

In the film Perfect Sense, Eva Green plays a pretty scientist who meets a handsome, talented chef (played by Ewan McGregor)—but it’s not quite a perfect love story. While they’re falling in the love, the world is falling victim to a global pandemic characterized by the steady destruction of the senses. As Susan, Green—who you’ve seen as the sexy sister in The Dreamers, the evil sister in Camelot and a Bond Girl in Casino Royale—masterfully interprets life without sight, sound, smell, or taste. ELLE.com spoke with the actress about what would happen if she lost her senses in real life, and why Tim Burton’s a pleasure to work with, even though he’s “cuckoo.”

ELLE: Living with all of your senses, the idea of losing them seems unthinkable. How was it to prepare for the role?
Eva Green: It was more an emotional thing, an emotional crisis. The most difficult scene was the loss of hearing, because it was kind of more anxious, and anxiety feelings. But there was no specific preparation for the part.

ELLE: Which sense would be the one you’d most be willing to give up?
EG: My eyes, maybe…but I hope it never happens!

ELLE: Is there a sense you’d miss the most?
EG: The sense of smell. Without that, [you lose your] sense of taste—and I love foie gras, so that would be really bad.

‘Perfect Sense’ review by filmequals.com

Posted by Stef in Feb 06,2012 with Comments Off

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 two of them seem to connect instantly on a level they haven’t been able to with other people before.

But with the entire world’s population affected by a strange disease that first depresses you then takes away your sense of smell, we are left wondering if this is only the beginning to the disease and at which point it will stop.

As the audience, we are told the story through Susan and Michael’s eyes. We see the evolution of the disease and how they experience this new world. It’s quite fascinating actually and will definitely make you think.

Eva Green plans the perfect sensory tour of NYC

Posted by Stef in Feb 06,2012 with Comments Off

If you only had one day to live before losing your senses, how would you use them?

Actress Eva Green would take a bite out of the Big Apple.

“The best way to explore your senses in New York City: I love Le Bernardin French restaurant,” says Green, who plays a Scottish epidemiologist investigating a pandemic that’s wiping out the human race’s sensory perceptions in “Perfect Sense,” opening Friday.

“It’s kind of a fusion of Japanese and French cuisine,” raves Green. “It’s one of the best restaurants in New York. It’s a real treat, kind of an old-world beauty.”

After treating her taste buds, the French actress would indulge her eyes and ears with the city’s most iconic green space.

MTV at the Movies interview with Eva Green

Posted by Stef in Feb 06,2012 with 1 Comment

‘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: ‘Perfect Sense’ is not your typical, Biblical end-of-days film. Since it offers a new angle as to how mankind could end, did you walk away with any new fears or ideas on how the world might end?
A: Oh my God, I’m not a medium [laughs]! But the planet and the pollution is really bad. It’s scary. The past century has been quite nasty to our planet, we’ve just been killing it. But that’s a tricky question… I’ll have to think about that.
