We approve of this casting. Boy howdy, do we.
It's been swell and all hearing that Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and even Bruce Willis will be back for the "Sin City" sequel, and it's been nice to hear about new cast members like Josh Brolin, Jamie Chung and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But none of that makes for the casting news we've really been waiting for.
Now we have it. Eva Green, the impossible gorgeous Bond Girl of "Casino Royale" and the oft-naked cinephile of "The Dreamers," has been cast in the title role of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," according to Variety. Get More »
This week: The latest collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp is a remake of the '60s soap opera "Dark Shadows" with Depp playing the centuries-old vampire Barnabas Collins, who is having an amusingly difficult time adjusting to the weird and wonderful '70s.
Also new this week is the family drama "People Like Us" with Chris Pine, the Blu-ray debut of Disney's animated "Cinderella," a Blu-ray collection of the first seven "A Nightmare on Elm Street" movies and "Universal Monsters: The Essential Collection" in high definition for the first time.
By this point in our ongoing national recession, when most people see or hear words associated with finance, their eyes glaze over and they reflexively put their fingers in their ears. "Abritrage?" La la la, we can't hear you.
But before you do that this time around, there are a couple other things you'll want to know about the "Arbitrage" trailer before you go to your happy place: it features Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth, Brit Marling and Eva Green.
Hey, that finance stuff suddenly doesn't seem so boring, now does it? Get More »
Agent 007 sure knows how to pick 'em.
Eva Green was the Bond babe in "Casino Royale" who stole our hearts with that smoldering glare alone.
The raven-haired beauty switches it up with a retro blonde hairdo in "Dark Shadows" as Angelique, a magical temptress who just wants Johnny Depp's Barnabas to fall for her. Barnabas turns her character down harshly, so she gets revenge by cursing him to be a vampire. Ouch, but seriously, who would turn this lady looker down?
Check out our gallery of the French femme fatale's best looks and try to withstand her bewitching beauty.
Oddball director Tim Burton continues his association with mancrush Johnny Depp in "Dark Shadows," their eighth collaboration together.
Based on the late-'60s TV soap opera of the same name, the story follows 200-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp) as he awakens in the 1970s to find his family on the verge of ruin. This campy take on the cult series should be ghoulish fun in an "Addams Family" vein.
Even immortal vampire Barnabas Collins himself would find it a Herculean task to wade through all 1,225 episodes of the original "Dark Shadows" TV series. To put it in perspective, a new complete coffin-shaped DVD box set boasts a runtime of 30,000 hours, and that's without bathroom breaks.
The supernatural soap opera, which ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971, is now getting the full-on feature film treatment. "Dark Shadows" (the movie) has all the big-budget trimmings courtesy of director Tim Burton and his muse Johnny Depp as Barnabas. Before you devour the May 11 release, we've created an easy-breezy introduction to all the things you'll find lurking in the "Shadows." Get More »
Eva Green as a goddess? Talk about typecasting!
The former Bond Girl and all-around stunning beauty is in talks to play the heavenly female lead of "300: Battle of Artemisia," according to Heat Vision.
Green would be playing the role of Artemisia herself, the ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades king-turned-god Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead the charge against the Greek forces. The giant battle at the center of the film is said to be happening simultaneously with the events of the original "300." Get More »
When paparazzi shots of Johnny Depp in full costume and make-up on the set of "Dark Shadows" surfaced last week, fans of the spooky soap opera were aghast -- and not in a good way.
Most of us know it's totally uncool to judge anything from a lurker with a long distance lens, especially sneaky shots of a movie in progress that will certainly look different on screen and be tweaked in post-production. Still, it was hard not to be a little alarmed by the Michael Jackson-y figure shambling along with Chloe Moretz. Get More »
What's scarier, a crazy contagious virus spreading through the world that no one knows how to stop or cure, or falling in love?
For Eva Green and Ewan McGregor's characters in "Perfect Sense," both are equally distasteful, but too bad for them because that's just what's happening -- at the same time. She's an epidemiologist wary of men and he's a cook giving commitment the old side-eye, but if the end of the world doesn't screw everything up, they might have a chance at love. Talk about bad timing! Get More »
Yes, we know, Tim Burton's upcoming project will bring us yet another vampire flick.
But before you go running for Edward and Bella's love shack, however, hear us out — because one of Hollywood's newest heartthrobs just landed one of the film's pivotal roles, which could definitely bring some new life into this popular genre.
Thomas McDonell, the breakout star from Disney's "Prom," has just signed on to play a young Johnny Depp in "Dark Shadows," Burton's big-screen take on the 1960s Gothic vampire TV soap opera.
(Wait — there were vampire shows back in the '60s?!) Get More »
