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!

Great strength, astounding beauty and real vulnerability in one role; perhaps that’s why so many fell for Eva Green in Casino Royale. But she’d already made us weak at the knees with a risqué performance in The Dreamers and we’d seen her tough side in Kingdom Of Heaven‘s Sibylla. Green has also proved the best thing in movies that don’t necessarily work, chewing the scenery in Dark Shadows and out-weirding Johnny Depp in a Tim Burton film. Who knew that was possible?
She sizzles with Ewan McGregor in Perfect Sense.

Sexy. And she loves her dog, too. (link)

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.

“Nudity is just another costume. Perverts might think otherwise.” – Eva Green
Let us rephrase it… “Banana is just another fruit. Perverts might think otherwise.” – Eva Green Web Staff
If that’s not enough, let us quote Freud: “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.” And the same goes for a banana.
Eva’s just having a snack. These photos were taken on-set. We don’t post paparazzi pics of her walking down the street. She clearly knew that she was surrounded by dozens of people and that she ran the risk of being photographed. We’re more interested in the period costumes and the locations. Plus, at least she’s eating and not starving herself. Would you feel the same way if that was a sandwich instead of a banana?
PS: These photos have hit the web long before we posted them. We got them thanks to Sebastian who, we’re sure of it, meant no harm, only saw them for what they are, and would never think of disrespecting Miss Green. He’s a regular contributor.

Thanks to Astrea and edenLiao for the new additions. Enjoy!
Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” is filming as we speak, and the first paparazzi images have hit the interwebs.
Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. Dalton will be playing African explorer “Sir Malcolm,” while Carney has snapped up Dorian Gray. Hartnett will play the role of “Ethan Chandler,” a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Green will play “Vanessa Ives,” a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger. Treadway will stitch to life Victor Frankenstein. Juan Antonio Bayona will helm the first two episodes of the series.
“Penny Dreadful” is created, written, and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street’s Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call the Midwife). Bayona is an acclaimed and award-winning director, best known for his work on the hugely successful 2007 horror film The Orphanage and the 2012 Oscar contender The Impossible.
“Penny Dreadful” is set to premiere on Showtime in spring 2014. For more info in the meantime, visit “Penny Dreadful” on Showtime, “like” “Penny Dreadful” on Facebook, and follow @SHO_Penny on Twitter.
Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. “PENNY DREADFUL” is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
