Eva, your character Ava Lord is sort of the classic femme fatale. And I can imagine she was a lot of fun to play, especially considering how many facets there are to her and the various fronts she puts on for different people?
Eva Green: Definitely. It’s such a multi-dimensional role. Ava is like an enchantress, a siren, she casts spells over men. She can read men’s minds and she can become whatever they want her to be. With Josh Brolin’s Dwight, it’s very interesting because there’s a true connection – he’s different from other men. He’s probably the only man she ever loved. But the thing with Ava, she’s sort of caught up with her own demons. And like you said, Ava has so many facets… she can be a damsel in distress for Dwight, with Manute she’s a goddess and with Mort, she’s the sexy kitten. As an actor, it’s great because you can show so many colors.
Sony Pictures has set loose this new UK trailer for the upcoming musical drama ‘Annie,’ which is directed by Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) and produced by Jay-Z, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith.

Set to hit the big screen on December 19th in the US and December 26th in the UK, the stellar supporting cast for the film also includes Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Tracie Thoms and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning ‘Sin City’ graphic novels back to the screen in ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.’ Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants. ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ is the follow up to Rodriguez and Miller’s 2005 groundbreaking film, ‘Sin City.’
The main cast for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long awaited sequel includes the original ‘Sin City’ cast members: Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy. New cast members for the neo-noir crime action thriller include: Eva Green as Ava Lord, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Dennis Haysbert as Manute, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Jeremy Piven as Bob, Stacy Keach as Wallenquist, Jamie Chung as Miho, Ray Liotta as Joey, Juno Temple as Sally, Julia Garner as Marcy, and Josh Brolin as Dwight.

One of the new stories in this film, “The Long, Bad Night,” features your character Johnny, a young, cocky gambler. And unlike any story in the first movie, Frank Miller wrote “A Long, Bad Night” and Johnny distinctly for this film, without any preexisting graphic novel. What was is it like to collaborate with Miller and Robert Rodriguez on the development of his character.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: I absolutely love that. The character of Johnny, who’s not any of the books, has sort of been a collaborative creation. I mean, it was written in the script but there weren’t any drawings and so it didn’t have as much specificity as really all the other characters in this world. So Frank was re-writing as we were going, and it’s sort of an actor’s dream to be working with filmmakers who are so collaborative and so open and eager to incorporate my creative contributions into the movie. And Johnny’s an interesting character. Johnny loves a game fo chance. He’s good with the cards and the coins. His “sin” is gambling, although there’s a lot of other “sin” that comes into play on this long, bad night (laughs).
With an October 17th release in place, IFC Films has unveiled this first poster for Peter Sattler’s ‘Camp X-Ray.’ In the film, a young woman (Kristen Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots, but ends up as a rookie guard at Guantanamo Bay. Her mission is far from black and white, as she is surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive male squadmates. When she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees (‘A Separation’ star Payman Maadi), both of their worlds are forever shifted. The film, with a screenplay by Sattler, also stars Lane Garrison, J.J. Soria and John Carroll Lynch.
Hot on the heels of the news that Sigourney Weaver has joined ‘A Monster Calls,’ a new report brings word that Toby Kebbell has also joined Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones in Juan Antonio Bayona’s adaptation of the award-winning children’s fantasy novel by Patrick Ness (the “Chaos Walking” trilogy). One of my favorite young actors working today, Kebbell was recently seen as Koba in ‘Dawn of The Planet of the Apes.’ Next up he’ll be seen in ‘Buddha’s Little Finger,’ Duncan Jones’ ‘Warcraft’ and as Doctor Doom in ‘The Fantastic Four’ reboot.
‘A Monster Calls’ follows the unexpected bond that develops between a young boy and a beast that visits him in nightmares. Thirteen-year-old Conor O’Malley is troubled by his mother’s declining health, school bullies and the yew tree in his backyard that transforms at night into a monster that narrates strange stories. Over time what the terrifying visitor tells the boy enables him to come to terms with life’s truths. Toby Kebbel will play the boy’s father, a man with a history of not being there for his son. Felicity Jones is on board as the mother, while Liam Neeson is playing the titular monster. Sigourney Weaver is playing the boy’s no-nonsense grandmother.
