Tim Burton And Eva Green Feel Like They Were Made For Miss Peregrine


Tim Burton Eva Green

So he was clearly a perfect fit to direct the adaptation of Ransom Riggs' bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. "One of the things that I loved about the story is that I think a lot of us are deemed as weird or peculiar," Burton says. "The fact is, while all these kids have their peculiarities, if you didn't know what those peculiarities were, they'd just be viewed as normal kids. That's something I really felt close to, and it was an interesting dynamic in the story."

Burton says that he fell in love with Riggs' book on first sight. "It was the first time I looked at a book and loved it before I read it, and that was because of the old photographs," he says. "There's something quite mysterious, haunting and poetic about old photographs. The way he constructed a story around these photographs was quite clever. That idea was inspiring, just on its own. It was an interesting kind of way to create a story. It made it feel like a weird old fable."

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Trailer


Jake has always been an ordinary boy but when he finds himself on a small island, things begin to happen that few people would be able to explain. His new friend, a beautiful young girl named Emma seems to be able to perform miraculous occurrences start to happen. 

Things become a little clearer - yet utterly more baffling - when he's taken to meet Miss Peregrine at her exceptional orphanage for children. As Jacob is quick to learn, each of Miss Peregrine's kids has a special ability, something unique to them. Emma can control oxygen and must wear hefty boots to keep her feet firmly attached to the ground, whilst Bronwyn is a little girl with incredible physical strength. 

Miss Peregrine is the protector of the children and acts as their matriarch. To keep them safe she's formulated a way of manipulating time to keep the kids away from dangerous monsters who hunt them down - however, as the dark forces become stronger the Children are placed in more and more danger - unbeknownst to Jacob, perhaps he holds the key to keeping his new friends safe. 

Unfortunately, 'Sin City 2' Looks Like A Flop


Eva Green

A week after it opened in the US and UK, pundits are already calling Sin City: A Dame to Kill For a major box office flop. The last big blockbuster of the summer, the film scored $6 million at the American box office when everyone predicted it would earn at least $10 million.

But there are a few things to consider: first, audiences are enjoying it, as demonstrated by its 72% positive IMDb rating. And second, it's still opening around the world. The film previewed in limited UK cinemas last weekend, but the receipts won't be added in until it opens wider this weekend, and its global total is at £13 million and counting.

'Sin City 2' Goes Deeper, Darker, Meaner


Eva Green

It's been nine years since Frank Miller brought his noir-thriller comic book Sin City to cinema screens in a groundbreaking movie co-directed with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. It was the first time a film looked and sounded exactly like its source graphic novel, complete with spot-colour, silhouetted action and intense violence and sex.

Rodriguez calls these films a "translation" of the comic book rather than an adaptation, giving Miller full screenwriting credit because essentially the book is the script.

"Sin City" Stars Talk A Big Game Of Female Empowerment, But Will The Movie Deliver?


Jessica Alba Eva Green Rosario Dawson Joseph Gordon-Levitt Josh Brolin Bruce Willis

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For isn’t out until this coming Thursday, August 21, but promotion has been going on for months. Maybe you’ve noticed that this time around, it’s mostly (if not all) focused on the ladies – from Jessica Alba’s no-longer damsel-in-distress Nancy, to Rosario Dawson’s dominatrix with a deadly attitude Gail, to the Dame herself – Eva Green as Ava Lord. These are no-nonsense, cliché-free female characters. Well, technically they’re all cliché, but that’s the point – it’s all very post-modern and ironic and noir-inspired, etc.

Jessica Alba
Yes, ok, the women are still strutting around in their underwear. But this time they are empowered, apparently.

Will '300: Rise Of An Empire' Conquer Another Weekend? What's In The Way?


Eva Green Sullivan Stapleton

‘300: Rise of an Empire’ dominated the international market last weekend, topping the post-Oscars box office in both the U.K and U.S. And without any blockbuster competition this weekend, the Greek fantasy epic could be set to dominate once more.

300 Rise of an Empire Eva Green in '300: Rise of an Empire'

Starring Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton, ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ stormed to success with £2.7m and $45m in the U.K and U.S respectively, despite garnering a lukewarm response from the critics.

'300: Rise Of An Empire' Trumps Box Office Competition, But Falls Behind Original


Zack Snyder Eva Green

Meet your new box office champion – Zack Snyder’s 300: Rise of an Empire. Considering everything, the odds were pretty much stacked against Rise, what with its March release and the seven-year gap between Rise and the original. But in the absence of any real competition, the CGI-fueled action flick easily rose (get it?) to the top of the box office. It’s $46 million opening weekend was on point with predictions.

300: Rise of an Empire Still
Rise is just as bloody, but maybe not quite as profitable, as the original.

According to Forbes, $6.8m of those profits came from its 343 IMAX locations (it’s their second-biggest R-rated debut). Rise of an Empire doesn’t even come close to matching its predecessor’s debut from 2007. Back then, the original 300 made $70.9 million on opening weekend, even without the additional IMAX charge. But then, few franchises ever match the success of the first movie. A successful trilogy is pretty much the Holy Grail of the film industry – things like Men in Black ($51, $52 and $54 million opening weekends) and the Matrix trilogy come to mind.

'300: The Rise Of A Franchise'


Frank Miller Eva Green

After the unexpected success of 300 back in 2007, everyone scrambled to create a sequel. Based on a battle in Greek history in which everyone dies at the end, following it up was always going to be tricky. But the film was also based on Frank Miller and Lynn Varley's comic book version of those historical events.

Eva Green 300 Rise of an EmpireEva Green in '300' Sequel 'Rise of an Empire'

So the filmmakers turned to Miller for inspiration, and he in turn wrote a new graphic novel called Xerses, centred around the battles of Artemisium. Instead of a sequel, this new film takes place at the same time as the events of 300, but on a completely different front: at sea against Xerses' military commander Artemisia (played by glowering scene-stealer Eva Green).

Critics Peg "300: Rise Of An Empire" As One Big Bloody Mess. Literally.


Zack Snyder Lena Headey Eva Green

Today is the day. After months of eye-popping, but low on story trailers, Noam Muro’s 300: Rise of an Empire hits theaters today. It was written by Zack Snyder, so regardless of which side of the Snyder divide moviegoers stand on, it’s fairly obvious what to expect from this film. Even so, early reviews are controversial at best.

300: Rise of an Empire Still
300: Rise of an Empire is little more than stylish, say critics.

Here’s the quick rundown. As much as some critics have loved the stylish, gory look of Rise,  in terms of substance it mostly fails to impress. The LA Times’ Betsy Sharkey puts it thusly: “As much performance art as movie, 300: Rise of an Empire unfolds as beautiful, bloody, slow-motion machismo.” While it lacks some of the freshness of the 2006 original, she writes, Rise’s impact is helped by “passionate music perfectly underscoring this latest round of the "beautiful death" the ancient Greeks were so poetic about.”

300: Rise Of An Empire - Battles, Blood And Brand New Characters


Rodrigo Santoro Lena Headey Eva Green Jack O'Connell

Seven years after the original 300 caused students to yell “THIS. IS. SPARTA!!!” at every beer-fueled rager for months on end, we get the trailer for the sequel – that’s not really a sequel – 300: Rise of an Empire. The film has new direction – Noam Murro, taking over from Man of Steel’s Zack Snyder – and a whole new focus and as Murro has pointed out, this will not be a sequel per se – in. It will be more of a prequel and sequel at the same time in terms of the timing, the events take place before, during and after the events of 300. Instead, this new installment will shift its focus. Based on the graphic novel Xerxes by Frank Miller, the film will open with Greek general Themistocles getting ready to battle an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes.

The Trailer Has Been Released For "300: Rise Of An Empire." No, Not Another Sequel.


Rodrigo Santoro Lena Headey Eva Green

Right on the heels of “Man of Steel’s” release, the trailer for director Zach Snyder’s new movie has been released. “300: Rise of an Empire” is set to premiere on July 3 2014. Is this a sequel to 300? No! THIS. IS. SPARTA. Apologies, we couldn’t help ourselves. Anyway, this really won’t be a sequel. MTV News quotes Noam Murro – the film’s director, who is a newcomer to the franchise - as saying that this film takes place before, during and after the events of the last one – it just has a much broader scope.

Neither Prequel Nor Sequel - 300: Rise Of An Empire Takes The Battle To The Oceans


Eva Green Sullivan Stapleton Lena Headey Rodrigo Santoro

Neither a sequel nor a prequel, 300: Rise of an Empire is set at the same time as the original movie 300 but this time, the action takes place on the sea. Once more, the stylized look of the movie takes its cue from the graphic novel by Frank Miller, USA Today reports, but the ocean setting allows for a vaster landscape in which the action can take place. The movie’s director Noam Murro explains that the new movie “is tied visually to the original,” but adds “there is a whole different choreography of fighting and war.”

In 300:Rise of An Empire, the Greek general Themistokles (played by Sullivan Stapleton) and his “common-man troops” fight the Persian army out at sea. Murro explains that the action takes place over a number of locations: “The opportunities for the six distinct battles are even greater with different locations and tactics.” The ‘few against the many’ arc is still present though, as it was in the first 300 movie. “It's hundreds vs. hundreds of thousands. It's about taking on the mightiest power of all with wisdom and tactics.” The mightiest army, in this case is led by Eva Green’s Artemesia, second-in-command to the mortal turned god leader Xerxes. “She does most of Xerxes' dirty work in this film. She's seeking revenge, and she does it well," Stapleton explains. "She's a force to be reckoned with."  

Also starring Games of Thrones actress Lena Headey and Rodrigo Santoro, the movie is due to open on August 2, 2013.

Gadgets And Girls: The Added Extras That Make Bond Movies Great


James Bond Daniel Craig Beyonce Knowles Eva Green Berenice Marlohe Olga Kurylenko Rihanna

Aside from the riveting plot lines, unbeaten chase scenes, sickeningly suave dialogue and general brilliance that is James Bond himself, the movies also have some other excellent features, namely: gadgets and girls. 

Classic gadgets have always been provided by resident technological genius Q, and they include the rigged attache case that makes an appearance in many of movies, the golden gun from The Man With the Golden Gun, the cigarette that appears in You Only Live Twice which contains a rocket, and the ring that Q provided Bond with which ensures a jackpot at any slot machine. Useful, eh? The Bond gadgets aren't limited to the fictionalised world within the films, but even creating the movies requires a variety of 'gadgets'. Skyfall's most impressive gadget is the enormous 3D printer that was used to recreate an Aston Martin DB5, recreating the classic car driven by Sean Connery to scale. According to NY Daily News there were three replicas made, each built of 18 perfectly made parts, to enable cars doors, boot and hood to move exactly as the original would have done, among other features. Incredible! 

Bond girls, are an entirely different kettle of fish. Names, so shamelessly innuendo fuelled that one barely even bothers to blush, must be beautiful, glamorous, exotic and powerful. Despite the British trademark, Bond girls are often not. Octopussy, played by Maud Adams (in Octopussy), was Swedish, Judy Havelock portrayed by Carole Bouquet (in For Your Eyes Only) was French, Michelle Yeoh's Wai Lin (in Tomorrow Never Dies) was Malaysian and the past three Daniel Craig movies have all had a distinctly French twist, with Eva Green (Casino Royale), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Berenice Marlohe (Skyfall) all French and all portraying a Bond Girl. Now talk has turned to future Bond girls and Craig has backed Rihanna over Beyonce for the post, according to NY Daily News, because 'she's dirtier'. 

Dark Shadows Review


OK
There were 1,245 episodes of the gothic soap Dark Shadows between 1966 and 1971, so adapting it into a movie was never going to be easy. The script is an odd mix of smart dialog and random plot-strands, and while Burton gets the style right he never quite finds the tone.

After spending nearly 200 years trapped in a coffin, Barnabas Collins (Depp) is released to rejoin what's left of his wealthy New England family in 1972. The matriarch Elizabeth (Pfeiffer) now lives in the falling-down manor Collinswood with her brother Roger (Miller), her daughter (Moretz) and his son (McGrath), as well as a live-in shrink (Bonham Carter), a caretaker (Haley) and a new governess (Heathcote). But Angelique (Green), the witch who turned Barnabas into a vampire, is still trying to destroy the family.

Kingdom Of Heaven Review


Weak

For almost five years now, Hollywood studios have beentrying to duplicate the success of "Gladiator"by making the same big-budget historical battle epic over ("TheLast Samurai") and over ("Troy")and over ("KingArthur") and over ("Alexander").

Each movie has re-imagined history from a modern, let's-keep-an-open-mindperspective and hewed to a shopworn formula in which the hero rallies hismen against great odds and for a greater good. He invariably leads theminto the same blood-and-mud war scenes, which are always shot in the samestaccato slow-motion that characterizes the chaos of combat but forgetsthe audience needs to be kept abreast of who is winning. The hero alsoalways finds time to romance a beautiful woman from another culture.

Aside from having different casts, the only significantvariations between these films seem to be 1) whether the hero was of noblebirth or came up from nothing to become a great leader, and 2) whetherthe battlefields are green and forested or brown and sandy. One thing mostof them definitely have in common is that they've bombed at the box office.
