May 9th, 2013   M. 300: Rise of an Empire 14 Comments

Thanks to Ashley for the heads-up.

Every year studios tend to overestimate their tentpoles and then end up delaying them a year or more. 2013 saw an unprecedented amount of blockbusters originally slated for 2012 get pushed back six months off their originally intended bow: “The Great Gatsby,” “World War Z,” “Man Of Steel,” “Jack The Giant Slayer,” the list goes on (we took a deeper look at these films earlier in the year, see “The Delayed Films Of 2013: Why They Were Pushed Back & Which Ones Will You Be Seeing?”). The latest casualty is Warner Bros. “300: Rise Of An Empire,” and it’s easy to see why.

Three months away from release, buzz on ‘Rise Of An Empire‘ is fairly low and its awareness rating is probably not doing much better. Coupled with the fact that WB isn’t having their best year (a string of bombs and underperformers including “Jack the Giant Slayer,” “Beautiful Creatures,” “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone“), the studio is probably thinking it’s best to hit pause and regroup with a better game plan next year. So THR reports that “300: Rise Of An Empire” is moving from its current August 2nd date to March 7, 2014. While the “300” brand does have leverage, it probably doesn’t help that its leads, Eva Green, Rodrigo Santoro and Sullivan Stapleton aren’t exactly blockbuster-known household names.

A domino effect always occurs with a major shuffle like this and so WB is now moving the Tom Cruise sci-fi vehicle “All You Need Is Kill,” from its March 7, 2014 slot to June 6, 2014; directly in the heart of the summer. The tentpole is directed by Doug Liman and co-stars Emily Blunt.

Other recent release dates of note include, for one, the sequel to “21 Jump Street.” Now that “Jurassic Park 4,” has been delayed indefinitely, Sony Pictures has jumped in and slotted “21 Jump Street 2” (“22 Jump Street“?) for the now vacant June, 13, 2014 release date. Sony has also taken their remake of “Popeye” off the schedule. Once dated for September 26, 2014, the film has now been moved to a TBD 2015 release.

CBS Films must be feeling high about their teen comedy, “The To-Do List” starring Aubrey Plaza. It’s moving off its safer August 16 release date onto a bolder July 27 bow. That’s right in the heart of summer tentpole season, but they obviously feel like they have a funny counter programmer on their hands.

My computer broke and I’ve been unable to update the site. I guess Stef has been way too busy with her offline life, but here we go. Better late than never. ;)

Yet another NEW Eva movie is in the works! It’s called The Salvation and it’s currently filming in South Africa.

Here’s what we know so far:

The English-language drama from “The King Is Alive” director Kristian Levring also features “Hannibal” star Mads Mikkelsen and Mikael Persbrandt of “In a Better World.”

French actress Eva Green and Americans Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) and Michael Raymond-James (Jack Reacher) have joined the cast of The Salvation, a Nordic saga-inspired Western from Danish director Kristian Levring (The King Is Alive), which is shooting in South Africa.

THe English-language drama stars Mads Mikkelsen, who stars as infamous psychologist/cannibal Hannibal Lecter in NBC’s critically acclaimed crime drama Hannibal, as a peaceful settler in 1870s America forced to carry out violent revenge.

Green, who headlined the Starz fantasy miniseries Camelot and appeared in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, has a full dance card at the moment, with roles in two highly anticipated sequels: Sin City 2 and 300: Rise of an Empire. Salvation reunites her with the Danish Mikkelsen following their work together on the James Bond feature Casino Royale (2006).

Other big names added to the cast include acclaimed British actor Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean); Sweden’s Mikael Persbrandt, star of Susanne Bier’s Oscar-winning In a Better World and a supporting role in the final two entries in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy; Scottish actor Douglas Henshall (The Eagle); and French soccer star-turned-actor Eric Cantona (Looking for Eric).

The film’s script was co-written by Levring and prolific Danish writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen — who co-wrote The King Is Alive as well as Levring’s most recent feature, Fear Me Not, and collaborated with Bier on In a Better World and her latest, All You Need Is Love.

The story centers on John (Mikkelsen), a settler whose family is brutally murdered. John kills the killer, drawing the wrath of local gang leader Delarue, and the peaceful farmer is forced to fight the outlaws to save his town.

April 13th, 2013   Stef Gallery, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 27 Comments

Synopsis: Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez continue to adapt Miller’s “Sin City” graphic novels, this time with the second book “A Dame to Kill For,” an earlier story of Dwight McCarthy, whose life is turned upside down when Ava, a woman from his past returns, saying she loves him and causing all sorts of problems for him.

It was another dark night in Basin City when lovers Dwight and Ava Lord were reunited. But in Sin City, a reunion is never good news. And Ava has plans for Dwight…

It’s one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things. Dwight’s thinking of all the ways he’s screwed up and what he’d give for one clear chance to wipe the slate clean, to dig his way out of the numb gray hell that is his life. And he’d give anything. Just to cut loose. Just to feel the fire. One more time.

We also have a gorgeous new springy design in the gallery which was created by the very talented Flor. We hope you will all enjoy it as much as we do. Now on to the new photo and information on Eva and her new film…

Here’s a first look photo of Eva Green in the upcoming film “300: Rise of an Empire) by director Noam Murro and starring Eva Green (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Camelot), Rodrigo Santoro (300, The Last Stand, Rio 2) and Sullivan Stapleton.

Film Synopsis: After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.

Eva Green is ready for battle — “She has some balls, that’s for sure,” declares Eva Green of her weapon-wielding warrior in 300: Rise of an Empire. (…) “It’s my first action movie,” says the Bafta-winner. “Artemisia’s like an Amazon… She’s a very, very strong woman.”

Who’s ready for battle??? :D

February 22nd, 2013   Stef Gallery, Movies, White Bird in a Blizzard 16 Comments

Official Synopsis:
Kat Connors is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve, a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears – just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. In fact, it’s almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve’s disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother’s departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it…

Studio Ciné Live (France) – February 2013

The French actress is pursuing her rich international career by filming White Bird in a Blizzard under the direction of Gregg Araki. It’s the story of a young woman (Shailene Woodley, The Descendants), whose life is turned upside down by the disappearance of her mother. Today, Eva Green shoots, in Los Angeles, a scene in which she gets married… in the same church where Elvis and Priscilla Presley tied the knot in 1967. “It’s the first time that I get married on screen. And I shoot, the same day, my wedding and my funeral!”, she confides.

January 30th, 2013   Stef Movies, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 18 Comments

Eva Green has been tapped to play the femme fatale of Dimension Films’ Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, being directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Green’s casting marks the end of a long search for an actress to take on the role of Ava Lord, who is at the center of the pulpy story first published as a comic book in the 1990s.

The story told of a photographer who falls back into the life of a beautiful woman (Green) who had left him years earlier for a wealthy man, only to see himself set up for the murder of her husband.

Josh Brolin is playing Dwight, the photographer.

Returning for the sequel are Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King. New additions include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Julia Garner.

“Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City,” Rodriguez and Miller said in a statement. “From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green.”

Green, repped by UTA, last year appeared alongside Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and will next appear in Warners’ 300 sequel 300: Rise of an Empire.

January 6th, 2013   M. 300: Rise of an Empire Comments Off

300: Rise of an Empire will feature some crossover with the original film.

Actor Rodrigo Santoro – who plays Persian king Xerxes in both films – has said that Zack Snyder’s influence can be felt throughout the upcoming sequel.

Snyder was replaced by Noam Murro as director for the follow-up to the Frank Miller adaptation.

“I think it will match, because the idea is matching – characters and style and all that,” Santoro told Comic Book Resources.

“Especially because they’re calling it like a spinoff, you get bits of the first movie. There’s a place where they meet, the first movie and the second movie, but it’s a different director.

“I didn’t see the movie yet, the final result, but the experience – I mean, Zack was pretty much involved because he wrote it and he’s producing it. His hands are there, but Noam will have his own take on directing it. I think it’s going to be pretty awesome, and the fans are going to be pleased.”

Santoro will share the focus of the film with Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green’s characters.

The actor will next be seen in The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnny Knoxville.

300: Rise of an Empire will debut on August 2, 2013.
