Eva Green does not get the fuss.

“I mean…the poster, you don’t see anything!” the French actress exclaimed to E! News, her response in a nutshell to the hullabaloo over what was deemed to be a too-sexual teaser image for the upcoming sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, featuring Green’s Ava Lord in a flimsy white robe, gleaming pistol in hand.

The none-too-subtle hint at what’s underneath Green’s robe was considered too naughty for public display by the Motion Picture Association of America, prompting Dimension Films to release an edited version of the poster. ABC later refused to air the trailer that was initially made for broadcast because Green “appear[ed] to be naked.”

“Just wait for the movie then. It’s in 3-D as well. Enjoy yourself, you know!” Green said, laughing. “It was nothing on the poster, it was lots of noise for nothing.”

She marveled over how the violence in the film, implied by her brandishing a weapon, was fun with the MPAA but the hint at nudity was being censored.

“I’m holding a gun on the poster—no big deal about the gun, it’s all about my t-ts?!”

The gorgeous Sin City 2 actress talks her favourite restaurant, wine, and what you should be wearing.

Sultry blue eyes, Bond girl pedigree and a recent US ban for an overly sexy film poster: it’s no wonder Eva Green is a woman we love.

Her latest incarnation, as Ava Lord in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For, might just be her most impressive role yet, as she takes on mantle of the ultimate femme fatale in Frank Miller’s graphic novel sequel.

We caught up with the French native to get her thoughts on London, wine, and what she thinks you should be wearing.

By Jonathan Broxton

Penny Dreadful is a Gothic horror/drama series on the American Showtime network, set in Victorian London at the turn of the 19th century. Taking inspiration from the classic writings of Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and others, as well as the “penny dreadful” magazines which told lurid tales of serial killers, highwaymen and cowboys, creator John Logan re-imagined these classic characters in a new setting, interacting with each other, and working together to defeat an ancient evil. The story follows Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), a charming American gunslinger sojourning in the motherland, who is recruited by the mysterious Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) to help Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton), a famed African explorer, rescue his daughter Mina, who he believes has been kidnapped by a vampire-like creature. Needing help of a medical nature, Sir Malcolm also obtains the help of Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), a brilliant young surgeon, who has a problem of his own: unknown to the others, Frankenstein has been conducting experiments involving death and resurrection, and one of his creations, the fearsome Caliban (Rory Kinnear) has come looking for his father…

The world is in a Golden Age of television at the moment. With massively popular shows such as Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, True Detective, Homeland, Fargo and others airing to enormous critical acclaim, it is currently de rigeur for major movie stars to feature in episodic series where, before, working in TV was considered ‘slumming it’, a step down from theatrical motion pictures. Similarly, television music is undergoing a renaissance of its own, with composers like Bear McCreary, Ramin Djawadi, John Lunn, Nathan Barr and Jeff Beal re-defining the quality of TV scores, and in many cases rivaling the best film music in the 2010s. Now you can add Abel Korzeniowski’s sumptuous music for Penny Dreadful to that list. Korzeniowski has slowly but surely been making a name for himself over the past few years as a composer to be reckoned with, him having received Golden Globe nominations for his scores for A Single Man and W.E. in 2009 and 2011 respectively, and having been the recipient of significant critical acclaim for his work on Romeo & Juliet and Escape from Tomorrow last year.

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…..
