August 3rd, 2014   G Article, General, Interview, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Comments Off

By Dave Lewis

For her part, Green added another deliciously over-the-top villainess to her resume (she recently stole the show as the baddie in “300: Rise of an Empire”). She said that in playing the duplicitous seductress Ava, it was a challenge to “still be believable and lie all the time…she’s so bad, so that was very fun. No conscience. No sense of right or wrong. She’s pretty evil.”

Rodriguez praised Green’s abilities, noting a scene in which she dupes a pair of cops into believing her innocence after attempting to murder someone close to her.

It’s been nearly a decade since “Sin City” hit theaters, but fans will soon be able to return to the seedy, crime-ridden cesspool known as Basin City in the upcoming “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.” 

Dimension held a press conference earlier today with stars Jessica AlbaJosh BrolinEva Green and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, where they discussed the sequel’s original storylines, green screen technique, the possibility of further “Sin City” yarns and Alba’s dance moves. 

Based on Miller’s Dark Horse Comics series, the sequel includes two chapters based on existing storylines — “A Dame to Kill For” and the brief “Just Another Saturday Night” — plus the original stories “The Fat Loss” (originally titled “Nancy’s Last Dance”) and “The Long, Bad Night.” 

It brings together characters seen in the first film — Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Mickey Rouke as Marv, among others — along with some new faces, most notably Green as femme fatale Ava, Gordon-Levitt as the new character Johnny, and Brolin as Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film). 

Since the original 2005 film’s release, some actors have been replaced (Jamie Chung took over for Devon Aoki, while Dennis Haysbert stepped in for the late, great Michael Clarke Duncan).

August 3rd, 2014   G Interview, Penny Dreadful, Site Exclusive Comments Off

Penny Dreadful has four main characters based on three Gothic literature: Frankenstein, Dracula and The Picture of Dorian Gray. At San Diego Comic Con 2014, Showtime released three hardcover Special Editions of these books. The books contain original illustrations that were commissioned and oversaw by Penny Dreadful Creator John Logan. Here, we talk to Frankenstein illustrator Louie De Martinis about his craft, working on the book with John Logan and who is his favorite character on the show.

LouieDeMartinis-Frankenstein

 First of all, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a freelance illustrator and comic book artist living in Montreal, Canada. I’ve also worked in the animation industry on background design, storyboards and development art.

 

How did you get started in art and illustration?

As a kid I always loved to draw, and I especially loved reading comic books and watching Saturday morning cartoons. I knew early on that I wanted to pursue a career in art. I began working as a layout artist on the animated feature “Heavy Metal”. I started attending comic book conventions with portfolio in hand and eventually got my first gig as a comic artist and illustrator. I never looked back as they say.

 

Who are some of your favorite artists and/or illustrators and why? Who or what are some of your influences right now?

I really love art, all forms of art. I can go on forever about this but I’ll try to keep it short…IF I can!

Here’s a quick list of artists that inspired me and are still inspiring to this day. Frank Frazetta, Gene Colan, Alex Toth, Neal Adams, Bill Sienkiewicz, Sergio Toppi, Alberto Breccia, Jorge Zaffino, Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) … I could go on and on…..

At San Diego Comic Con 2014, Showtime released three hardcover Special Editions of these books. The books contain original illustrations that were commissioned and oversaw by Penny Dreadful Creator John Logan. Here, we talk to Dracula illustrator Martin Stiff about his craft, working on the book with John Logan and who is his favorite character on the show.

 Martin Stiff-Dracula

First of all, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a writer, designer and illustrator living in London. In my day job, I’m co-director of Amazing15, a design studio specialising in books, magazines, branding and merchandise. We’ve worked on a wide range of diverse projects including Sherlock, Doctor Who and Breaking Bad, and some of our book covers have won awards. On top of all this, for the past few years I’ve been writing and drawing a big award-nominated graphic novel called The Absence which finally saw publication this March from Titan Comics. I’m also married with a couple of kids. Life is busy.

 

How did you get started in art and illustration?

I don’t think I was ever not in art or illustration. Since I’ve been able to hold a pencil I’ve always enjoyed drawing and even from a young age it was always my intention to somehow make a living out of it. I’m lucky enough to have managed to make that happen. I studied illustration at university, spent a few years working in theatre set design and then kind of ended up as a graphic designer which is where I’ve been for the last decade or so. I’m a massive nerd so to be able to work on books and comics and get paid for it is like some kind of crazy dream come true.

 

Who are some of your favorite artists and/or illustrators and why? Who or what are some of your influences right now?

I like a wide variety of artists, but I guess primarily my main influences come from comics. Artists like Dave McKean (Arkham Asylum, Cages) had a huge effect on me when I was a teenager and really beginning to ‘learn’ about art. His use of collage and mixed media to tell the story was massively influential. I’ve always been a big fan of the anthology science fiction comic 2000AD, and the range of artists working on it was hugely inspiring. I tend towards artists that have a lot of energy and movement in their work so love people like Jock and Sean Phillips, Duncan Fegredo and Alex Maleev.

 IanBass-ThePictureofDorianGray

First of all, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I live and work in London which is the best city in the world. I speak French. I am a total geek, I love comics, cartoons and computer games. I was a geek a very, very long time before it was fashionable…I’m also part of a comedy group called Scales of the Unexpected (we won a TV talent show and everything).

 

How did you get started in art and illustration?

I have always loved drawing and have done it as a hobby forever. Professionally it was because a friend of mine needed a concept sketch done of how he wanted his book cover to look. It turned out that his editor really liked it and I got the gig to do the cover and some interior illustrations. That cover went on to win an industry award which was a fantastic start and really encouraged me to pursue illustration as a career.

With a February start date line up, Tim Burton is going with a familiar face to lead the away in his next pic.

Eva Green is in negotiations to star in the Fox pic “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” which Burton will direct.

Based on the Ranson Riggs’ novel about a teenager who finds himself transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them. Green would play the title character, who acts as a guardian for these orphans.

Chernin Entertainment is producing the pic.

If the deal closes, the film would be a step closer to giving Burton another supernatural feature to tackle. Green and Burton had previously worked together on “Dark Shadows” and Burton has always enjoyed reteaming with thesps he has worked with in the past.

Green, who is repped by UTA and Tavistock Wood Management, was last seen in “300: Rise of an Empire” and can be seen next in Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”

She has also stayed busy on the TV front with her Showtime show “Penny Dreadful,” which was recently renewed for a second season.

Penny-Dreadful-Blu-ray

Following the Penny Dreadful panel at Comic-Con where John Logan and the cast answered questions on the making of Season 1 and teased what’s ahead, Showtime announced that the first season will be making its way to Blu-ray and DVD in October:

The acclaimed SHOWTIME® original series PENNY DREADFUL – SEASON ONE will arrive on Blu-ray Disc and DVD October 7, it was announced today during the PENNY DREADFUL panel at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014.

From Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution, the Blu-ray and DVD collections will include every episode of the series’ first season, celebrated by critics as “scary, seductive, surprising, and smart” (NPR) and “solidly entertaining, well cast and oozing with atmosphere” (Variety). Both Blu-ray and DVD collections also boast extensive special features that delve into the gripping thriller.

From three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Skyfall, Hugo, Gladiator) and Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall),PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychosexual drama that weaves together classic horror origin stories into a gripping series that is “moody, mystical and wonderfully twisted” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). PENNY DREADFUL, starring Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights) and Eva Green (Casino), completely reinvents literature’s most famous characters. Icons of terror such as Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul – even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations.

The series also stars Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Danny Sapani (The Bill) and Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger). A co-production of Sky Atlantic, PENNY DREADFUL was created, written and executive produced by John Logan and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions, along with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street.
