At this moment in time, very little is known about the upcoming 007 movie other than the principal talents involved. Daniel Craig is making his fourth appearance as the man 007, and Sam Mendes is once again directing, though without the incredible work of cinematographer Roger Deakins. Another key ingredient returning is screenwriter John Logan, who recently sat down with the good people over at Empire and discussed the movie. “Right now the first draft is almost done,” he told the outlet about the sttus of ‘Bond 24.’ “I’m terrifically excited about it! I’ve been working very closely with Sam (Mendes), and it’s been joyous to pick up from our work on Skyfall and just continue on with the storytelling. The new movie continues the themes of Skyfall. Some of the characters and themes that we began to introduce in Skyfall will play out, I hope successfully, in the next movie.”
Providing us with new look at Angelina Jolie as Disney’s self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil”, EW has revealed their ‘Maleficent’ cover and a new still from the film. ‘Maleficent’ co-stars Elle Fanning as Aurora, and Sharlto Copley as Stefan, the half-human, half-fairy bastard son of the human king. In the film, Miranda Richardson plays Queen Ulla, a fairy queen who is Maleficent’s aunt – and dislikes her niece. Kenneth Cranham plays the human king who plots to conquer the fairy kingdom. Sam Riley takes the role of Diaval, a raven who changes into human form and is Maleficent’s right hand. Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville play the three pixie fairies in the tale.
Set for release on May 30th, the film explores the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent and what led her to curse Princess Aurora in Disney’s animated classic ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ Academy Award-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful) directs from a script by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Alice in Wonderland).
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel ‘Xerxes,’ and told in the striking visual style of the blockbuster ’300,’ this new chapter of the saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield – on the sea – as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. ’300: Rise of an Empire’ pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemesia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy. Penciled in for a March 7th release, ’300: Rise of an Empire’ stars Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, Eva Green as Artemisia, Jack O’Connell as Calisto, Hans Matheson as Aesyklos, Callan Mulvey as Scyllias, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, David Wenham as Dilios, and Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes.
For me, Artemisia is one of the most memorable villains I’ve seen in a very long time. She’s a bit nuts…..?
Eva Green: Just a bit (laughs)!? She’s the baddie. I love playing evil characters, you know? It’s always more interesting, and especially those villains who are complex and have a reason to behave in such a way. Artemisia is very ballsy, she’s very tough, she’s fearless, and we find out through the film that her whole family got killed by mutinous Greek soldiers. That tragedy explains her obsessive need for revenge and hatred towards the Greeks. But honestly, she’s just… mental. She finds jubilation in killing people. She has no conscience and she can’t tolerate incompetence, and anybody who doesn’t follow her orders, she just snaps, “Off with his head!”
