Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review


Very Good

It's taken nearly 10 years for filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and graphic novelist Frank Miller to get around to making this sequel, but it was worth the wait because the technical advancements make this second triptych of stories even more visually stunning, and the emotional resonance is even stronger. This is a lean, mean noir thriller that doesn't waste a single moment as it rips through three interlocking plots that centre on revenge for the events of the first movie.

Two people are out to get even with the ruthlessly nasty politician Roark (Powers Booth). Watched over by the hulking Marv (Mickey Rourke), gun-toting stripper Nancy (Jessica Alba) is still heartbroken after Roark killed her beloved Hartigan (Bruce Willis), who appears to her as a ghostly apparition. And Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is determined to bring Roark down by humiliating him at his own high-stakes poker game, even though merely having uncanny good luck might not be enough. But the main story centres on private eye Dwight (Josh Brolin), who is stopped in his tracks when he encounters his old flame Ava (Eva Green), a bombshell who has power over most men she meets. She asks for help with a domestic problem, and Dwight is powerless to walk away even though he knows something is fishy.

As before, these stories unfold exactly as they would in a graphic novel, with blunt dialogue and strikingly visual imagery black and white that's spotted with flashes of colour. Aside from Ava's blue coat, that colour is usually red: hair, nails, lips, but not blood, which splashes in glaring white. It looks fantastic in (ahem) eye-popping 3D. And it's fiercely violent as death hovers around the residents of Basin City, especially the lawless Old Town district. But there's just as much emphasis on surging passion, including some surprisingly graphic sexuality that plays up how helpless men are around a scantily clad woman. Indeed, it's rare to see an action film in which the women are so resolutely in charge.

Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For - International Trailer


It's all about revenge in Sin City now as the wounded (both physically and mentally) set out on a trail of death and destruction in a bid to make sure justice is served in their town. Dwight McCarthy is on another rescue mission to save an abused wife as Ava Lord claims she is a prisoner at the hands of her wealthy husband Damien. Unfortunately, it seems her intentions are of the dishonest kind. Thought to be have been executed, Marv wakes up among several corpses with little memory of his alleged crimes, but a strong desire for vengeance. Nancy is heartbroken to the point of insanity following  police officer John Hartigan's suicide, and there's no stopping her when she decides to sentence the father of child-killer Roark Junior, Senator Roark, to death. Notorious gambler Johnny is a newbie in the town with his own scores to settle, but it isn't long before he realises he's messing with criminals much bigger than him.

The second instalment of the 'Sin City' film franchise 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' is due for release nearly ten years following the 2005 original. Author of the original graphic novel Frank Miller ('300', 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns', 'Daredevil: Born Again') has adapted the screenplay and co-directs the movie with Robert Rodriguez ('Machete', 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico', 'From Dusk Till Dawn'). 'Sin City 2' is set to hit UK screens on August 25th 2014.

Here's Why We Love 'Sin City 2' Actress, Eva Green


Eva Green

Eva Green may be considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the world, but that’s not the reason we love her. Surprisingly, Green’s acting career only began 11 years ago, when she landed a part in 2003’s The Dreamers. Since then she’s enjoyed vast success in a string of blockbusters, including her breakout role as Vesper Lynd, the vixen who snares Bond, in 2006’s Casino Royale.

Eva Green Praise Eva has been accused of being quite gothic due to her love of black clothing, it's just "easy," she says

The same year that Casino Royale was released she won the BAFTA Rising Star Award, an award won by James McAvoy the previous year and Shia LaBeouf the following, just incase you doubted BAFTA’s ability to pick potential superstars.

The Outrage: Seth Rogen has been forced to abandon his goofy bear act this week to stand up against Washington Post critic Ann Hornaday, who wrote a controversial column implying that the "frat-boy" style movies comedians Rogen and Judd Apatow produce could have fuelled Elliot Rodger's horrific mass shooting last week. Rogen and Apatow let Hornaday have it...and it wasn't even slightly funny. Read more.

MPAA Pulls Eva Green's "Sin City 2" Poster, Because Human Breasts


Eva Green

Once again, the MPAA has deemed human female anatomy unfit for public display. This week, it’s Eva Green’s breasts. Specifically, Eva Green’s breasts as seen on a new Sin City: A Dame To Kill For poster. According to Deadline, the Hollywood studios’ trade group has deemed the poster, showing Green draped in a sheer white gown (and rocking a killer red lip, may we add) too risqué and voiced its disapproval. The official reason being given is “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.”

Eva Green
The lovely Eva Green might not have a problem displaying her physique.

It sounds like someone has been looking a little too closely. However, Deadline also reports that the association is working closely with the studio to reach some sort of compromise and release an edited version of the poster. Dimension Films reportedly had no comment but confirmed that the poster was being reworked. Which begs the question, are they going to remove the “under breast” or the “areola”? That much has not been revealed yet (pun intended), But if they're making compromises...

Eva Green Josh Brolin

A promo poster for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For featuring Eva Green has been rejected by America's movie classification board MPAA because it has been deemed too revealing. The stylised film poster shows the actress holding a gun whilst dressed in a diaphanous white night robe with the silhouette of her body visible.

Showtime's "Penny Dreadful" Isn't That Dreadful At All


Eva Green Josh Hartnett Billie Piper Timothy Dalton

Whenever a show or movie tries to make a show out of a mix of gothic literary characters, it usually ends up, rather aptly, a Frankenstein monster of a story – hammy at best, clumsy and unwatchable at worst. But Showtime has been on the ball with it’s sex-and-violence dramas of late, and they’re setting up a pretty compelling story with their new show, Penny Dreadful.

Eva Green
Eva Green is creepily brilliant as a paranormal expert in the first episode.

So far several familiar faces have made direct or indirect appearances – Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker (nee Murray, of Dracula fame), Jack the Ripper and so on. Then there are the new faces, like Eva Greene’s endlessly enjoyable (and possibly sociopathic) Vanessa Ives, who appears to be the partner of Timothy Dalton’s Sir Malcolm Murray. And she’s about as awesomely creepy as it gets.

'300: Rise Of An Empire' Conquers Box Office, Makes 'Mr. Peabody And Sherman' Sit Down [Trailer]


Eva Green Rodrigo Santoro Arnold Schwarzenegger

300: Rise of an Empire had a storming first weekend of release during which the new fantasy action film raked in $45 million. The Zack Snyder-directed sequel battled off competition from Dreamworks' animated Mr. Peabody & Sherman, which took a rather disappointing $32.2 million, as well as the Liam Neeson thriller Non-Stop and the fantastically successful The Lego Movie.

'300: Rise Of An Empire' Has Walloped All Competition Over Its First Box Office Weekend.

300's victory may have been trumpeted but its success falls short of its predecessor's $70 million debut seven years ago and the film hasn't exactly fared well at the hands of critics. Nevertheless, the movie enjoyed a healthy opening with 3D representing 63% of all tickets sold, according to Forbes. As the only R-rated movie currently on release, 300 stands to continue its success for several weeks with only Arnold Schwarzenegger's thriller Sabotage set to pose any threat when it arrives on the 28th March.

The everlasting trail of violence, death and deceit continues with the return of several characters from the original ‘Sin City’ movie. Dwight McCarthy is back, this time running to the rescue of his ex-girlfriend Ava Lord who claims she is being abused by her wealthy husband Damien; he has his own reasons for wanting to help her, but he could be in for a nasty surprise.

Following, her near miss at the hands of serial child-killer Roark Junior, Nancy struggles to deal with the painful death of her rescuer, police officer John Hartigan. Plus, a new face shows up in Sin City, a gambler named Johnny who lands himself in mortal danger when he tries to take on the town’s most formidable villain.

"300: Rise Of An Empire" Easily Rises To The Top Of The Box Office


Eva Green Wes Anderson

It’s over, folks, we can all go home now – with $17.7 million on Friday, the weekend box office now belongs to 300: Rise of an Empire. Showing in 3,470 theaters, Rise is predicted a $45 million weekend – more than enough to land at the top of the box office charts by Monday, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Eva Green, 300: Rise of an Empire
The Eva Green starrer is a shoe in for weekend box office topper.

Early showings on Thursday put the Legendary pic ahead by $3.3 million, but with a $108 million budget, the Eva Green starrer might be hurt by its off-season release. The Dreamworks Animation’s Mr. Peabody and Sherman is likely to take second place. With $8 million earned on Friday, the flick had a bit of a slow start, but is still predicted to make around $31.5 by the end of the weekend. That’s on a $145 million budget, according to Variety. It’s not great, but the film is still on track to beat Dreamworks’ last release, Turbo, which flopped domestically with an $83 million gross. Mr. Peabody is based on characters from the 1960s TV show The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show. That’s it for the new openers this weekend.

Did '300: Rise Of An Empire' Writers Forget To Pen A Decent Script?


Frank Miller Eva Green

Based on Frank Miller's latest graphic novel Xerxes, 300: Rise of an Empire hits theaters in the U.S this weekend and continuing the blockbusting 300 saga. The latest move pits Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton)  against a massive charge of invading Persian forces, which sounds great, but did the writers forget to provide anything besides visually spectacular battle scenes?

300 Rise of an Empire300 Rise of An Empire is Visually Impressive

Our very own Rich Cline said: "...in the end, it's the limp plot and soggy fake-Shakespearean dialog that sinks the movie. Although fans of torso porn will be looking forward to another chapter."

300: Rise Of An Empire Review


OK

Fans of the 2007 Spartan war romp 300 probably won't care that this spin-off is even more chaotic and much murkier to look at. It still features armies of scantily clad muscle men grunting idiotic declamatory dialogue as they charge into cartoon-style battles against all odds. No, this isn't particularly subtle filmmaking: it's loud and brutal. And good for an unintentional laugh.

At the same time as Spartan King Leonidas (a briefly glimpsed Gerard Butler) is leading his 300 men to battle against Xerses (Santoro), Greek General Themistocles (Stapleton) approaches Leonidas' wife Gorgo (Headey) for help facing Xerses vengeful military commander Artemisia (Green) on another front at sea. Themistocles' main officers are Aesyklos (Matheson) and Scyllias (Mulvey), whose son Calisto (O'Connell) secretly joins the army as they set sail for an epic ship-based battle against Artemisia's fearsome forces. And there are two more watery conflicts to come, each more outrageous than the one before, as Artemisia taunts Themistocles seductively while dispensing fiery death and destruction at every turn.

The addition of two strong women adds a bit of interest here, but the focus is still on the bare-chested men, even if only three or for of them actually emerge into proper characters. Headey's chief contribution is a rambling voiceover narration explaining everything for us, while Green's wry smirk and momentous glower let her steal every scene. By contrast, the men seem rather feeble. Stapleton is manly and commanding, but not hugely charismatic. Rising-star O'Connell barely gets two decent scenes. Santoro is hilariously grouchy eye candy. And everyone else is clearly expendable.

When Leonidas and his valiant army of 300 Spartans were wiped out by the vast forces led by Persian God King Xerxes, the rest of Greece now feel that their country has gained honour following their tragic loss. However, their battle is not over yet as Persia is rapidly sailing in for another invasion. Rival cities Sparta and Athens are forced to set aside their bitterness towards each other if they have any hope of victory - though with Xerxes on their tail with immortal power, their lives teeter on the edge. Nonetheless, the Greeks remained filled with a fierce determination following Leonidas' heroism and so Themistocles of Athens leads his naval fleet to war while Sparta's army prepares for another fight. How can they survive against a seemingly impervious God King and his female ally, the just as ruthless, sword-wielding Artemisia? Outnumbered and overpowered once again, there is still hope.

A Week In Movies: Dame Judi In Star Wars? Jack Ryan And Milla Jovovich Hit London, While Trailers Promise Vampires, Spies, Aliens And Hunks

Star Wars

The best rumour this week is that Judi Dench may play Mon Mothma in Star Wars Episode VII, which director Jj Abrams starts shooting in the UK this spring. The character is a rebel leader in both III: Revenge of the Sith and VI: Return of the Jedi, but there's no foundation to this story. Rumours have been rampant over recent weeks and are bound to get even more inventive in the coming months. The original Luke Skywalker Mark Hamill has been keeping his lips tightly sealed when being quizzed about 'Star Wars VII'.

The year's first blockbuster, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, held its UK premiere this week before the spy adventure's British opening this weekend. Stars Chris Pine, Keira Knightley and Kenneth Branagh (who also directed) were joined on the red carpet by an array of local almost-celebrities. Browse through our 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' UK premiere' photo gallery.

Following Leonidas' honourable though inevitable death alongside his Spartan army of 300 at the hands of Persian God King Xerxes, the rest of Greece cannot help but feel a certain pride at the valiant effort. Now, with Persia quickly threatening invasion, rival cities Sparta and Athens must throw aside their differences and rally together to defeat their forces - but with an all-powerful king like Xerxes, their chances of survival look minimal. Nonetheless, filled with a newfound determination after Leonidas' heroic venture, Athens' naval fleet led by the admiral Themistocles set out to bring Persia down, as Sparta's army prepares another brave attack. They may be outnumbered yet again, but hope is the last thing Greece is going to give up.

Lena Headey And Eva Green Ensure '300: Rise Of An Empire' Has A Strong Female Presence [Trailer]

300: Rise of an Empire promises to have a stronger female on-screen presence, which isn't exactly a difficult feat considering 300, released in 2007, was nothing but wash-board abs and a host of handsome men.

Lena Headey

The sequel's list of equally butch men includes Jack O'Connell (Skins); Sullivan Stapleton (Gangster Squad); Hans Matheson (Sherlock Holmes) and Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty). David Wenham, Andrew Tiernan and Rodrigo Santora are reprising their roles from 300.

300: Rise Of An Empire Trailer


After a valiant but ultimately unsuccessful attack by Leonidas' army of 300 Spartan men on Persia's much larger army led by the 'God-King' Xerxes, the rest of the Greeks are at war with Persia determined to end their invasion and bring down their so-called God once and for all. Athens and their strong naval fleet, led by the admiral Themistocles, are forced to team up with Sparta, their civil rivals, and their formidable army though the Greeks are still ultimately outnumbered on a massive scale by Persia. However, with a determination instilled by a national pride in the sacrifice of Leonidas and his men, the Greeks enter in their new battle gladly and with a significantly reduced fear of their enemy.

'300: Rise Of An Empire' is the gritty, action-fuelled follow-up to 2007's '300' directed by Zack Snyder ('Dawn of the Dead', 'Watchmen', 'Man of Steel'). This sequel has been adapted from the graphic novel 'Xerxes' by Frank Miller and directed by Noam Murro ('Smart People'), though Snyder does make his return alongside Kurt Johnstad ('Act of Valor') on the screenwriting credits. With a multi-award winning epic to beat, 'Rise Of An Empire' looks to be a thrilling addition to this war saga and it is set to hit screens in the US on March 7th 2014.
