'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' trailer too sexy for ABC

Sin-City-2-Eva-Green.jpg

First, Eva Green was too sexy in the poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Now she’s apparently too sexy in the movie’s trailer.

According to Page Six, which first reported the news, ABC felt that the white robe Green wears in the clip—making the actress appear nearly naked—was too sheer for TV. It’s a similar complaint to the one the MPAA made with Green’s poster image, in which she wears the same white robe. As a result, the poster was reworked.

It’s yet to be seen if Dimension Films will rework the footage to make the trailer more television-friendly. READ FULL STORY

Eva Green is too hot for the MPAA: Studio reworking risque 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' poster

Sin-City-Eva-Green

Is Eva Green revealing a bit too much in her Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster?

According to Deadline, a poster for the upcoming sequel featuring Eva Green wasn’t approved by the MPAA for “nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” Though they declined to comment, Dimension Films did confirm to Deadline that the poster was being reworked prior to the film’s Aug. 22 opening. This process is nothing new for the MPAA, who meet with film executives to approve of all advertising materials prior to a film’s release and will offer any tweaks and suggestions to make any needed changes or at least a compromise. No matter the ultimate decision, all of the material is still open for the public’s view.Take a look at the full poster below and judge for yourself: READ FULL STORY

Critical Mass: Can Greece lightning strike twice in '300: Rise of an Empire'?

Artemesia.jpg

The first 300 was an uncompromising paean to glorious graphic-novel imagery, infused with music-video sensibility and CGI magic. Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Frank Miller’s bloody tale, which chronicles the Spartans’ noble defeat at Thermopylae in 480 B.C., splattered the box office in 2007, grossing $201.6 million and making Gerard Butler’s abs more famous than Gerard Butler. 300: Rise of the Empire is a prequel, sequel, and side-quel to that tale.

Butler’s King Leonidas is dead, but Athens’ general Themistokles (Strike Back‘s Sullivan Stapleton) rallies the fractured Greeks at sea against the invading Persian armada, led by Artemisia, a vengeful Greek orphan played with relish by Eva Green. The pre-se-side-quel explains her defection to the Persians, as well as her stepbrother’s (Rodrigo Santoro) transformation from heir to the throne into the giant golden god Xerxes after his father is killed in battle.

Snyder co-wrote the script, but he handed the camera to Noam Murro, a commercial actor who also directed Smart People. That 2008 dramedy, starring Dennis Quaid and Ellen Page, was short on decapitations and homo-eroticism, but he’s clearly up to speed on both for this assignment. “Murro uses 3-D to up the wow factor even further [than Snyder’s razzle-dazzle Spartan bloodfest],” writes EW’s Chris Nashawaty. “There’s so much crimson gore flying off the screen you feel as if you should be wearing a tarp like the folks in the front row of a Gallagher show.”

To paraphrase Leonidas, “This! Is! SPARTA!… Sorta.” Same splashy violence, with a dash of S&M that will surely land Green multiple MTV Movie Award nominations.

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' trailer: Eva Green gets even, Jessica Alba gets down -- VIDEO

SIN-CITY-EVA-GREEN.jpg

The sinners are back and out for revenge in the first teaser trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

The moody trailer features the original’s signature dry, dark humor, Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan slamming her forehead into a mirror, Josh Brolin’s Dwight McCarthy tearing down the road, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hard-luck gambler Johnny bloodied and screaming, and Eva Green’s Ava Lord shooting without pause — all framed by Mickey Rourke’s Marv growling “It’s just another Saturday night” (also the title of one of the tales). For fans of the first film, the teaser is a treasure trove of clues for Miller’s four vignettes — two of which are completely new stories.

'300 Rise of an Empire' trailer: Eva Green lets slip the dogs of war -- VIDEO

The first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, the sidequel to Zack Snyder’s 2007 blockbuster about the brave Spartans who died a noble death at the Battle of Thermopylae, let Lena Headey’s Queen Gorgo set the tone with her voiceover. In the new clip for the movie, the tables are turned, and Persia’s blood-thirsty naval gladiatrix Artemisia (Eva Green) explains the stakes. “Today we will dance across the backs of dead Greeks,” she says. “I will attack the Greeks with my entire navy.”

…but before that, I will make out with Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton), the dreamy Greek general who picks up his sword to avenge the fallen 300 and unite the Greeks against the Persians.

'300: Rise of an Empire' trailer: Slo-mo and clashing swords galore -- VIDEO

The first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire has hit the web, and it’s full of what you’d expect from a prequel/sequel/side-quel to the 2006 swords-and-sandals flick 300. There’s lots of CGI, lots of blood, and lots — and I mean lots — of slo-mo.

Slo-mo sweat dropping off Persians’ faces. Slo-mo sharpening of swords. Slo-mo running through mud. Slo-mo yelling. Slo-mo shooting of arrows. Slo-mo slashing of axes. Slo-mo horses leaping through fire.

In a press release announcing the news, Rodriquez and Miller said “Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City.  From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green.” Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene) will also join the large cast as a stripper named Marcy. Rodriguez and Miller are currently filming in Austin for an October 4 release. [Deadline]

Cronenberg recently directed an adaptation of DeLillo’s novel Cosmopolis. Even though he’s best known for his directing work, Cronenberg has acted in a handful of projects including some of his own (The Fly, Videodrome) and for some others too (Alias, To Die For). [Variety]
