We've known since May of this year that Ridley Scott was going to be at the helm of The Martian, an adaptation of Andy Weir's book of the same name, adapted for the screen by Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. However, since the director always has a slew of projects on his plate, we weren't sure if he would get around to making it sooner or later. But now it seems the project will actually be the director's next film, because Fox has just set it for release on November 25th, 2015. That's disappointing for anyone who was hoping for Prometheus 2, which was presumed for a March 2016 release, and now lies in limbo. So what's happening with that March 4, 2016 release date that Fox already staked out? Well, that's where they're moving their adaptation of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. The Tim Burton film just recently added »

Initially set for release on March 4, 2016, The Martian has been moved to November 25, 2015, where it will go up against Pixar's The Good Dinosaur and Warner Bros.' Midnight Special. The project is based Andy Weir's e-book of the same name, which follows an astronaut (Matt Damon) who becomes stranded on Mars.
The studio has also moved Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children from July 31, 2015 to March 4, 2016, where it will go up against an unspecified Disney Animation project. Tim Burton is attached to direct this adaptation of Ransom Riggs' novel, centering on a 16-year-old boy who is mysteriously transported to an island where he is tasked with protecting a group of orphans. We reported earlier this week that Eva Green is in talks to play the title character. »
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 »

August brings with it numerous follow-ups to previously successful films, making it a pretty sure bet that they will deliver again. This month's releases are largely dominated by classic 'good vs. evil' storylines, but also include UK comedy and futuristic worlds.
Digital Spy rounds up the 5 must-see movies for August below...
Release date: August 6
Why you should see it: As the title suggests, it's the sequel to the first Inbetweeners movie, which set the record for the biggest opening weekend for a comedy film in the UK, back in 2011. Based on the original E4 sitcom, the boys have gone their separate ways a year on from their debauchery in Crete. Jay, who's staying with an uncle in Australia, emails the boys announcing that he's the biggest DJ in the country. Will, Neil and Simon, all stuck in the UK, need no encouragement in jumping on a plane »
The sun has set on another exciting Comic-Con and as the weary conventioneers pack up their new-found collectables and panel swag, we’re already looking ahead to a number of films that had a big presence during the four day convention.
From exciting mega-cast panels from studios like Warner Bros. which trotted out The Hobbit cast and debuted the firsttrailer for The Battle of the Five Armies and the mother of all studio panels, Marvel, who closed the show with everyone from Captain America to Iron Man and newcomers Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
It’s not all Middle Earth and superheroes. We’re excited about everyone from the fake cops in Let’s Be Cops and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, The Boxtrolls, those stop-motion underground dwellers of Cheesebridge, and not to the mention those adorable masterminds, The Penguins of Madagascar (and their super secret spy recruiter Classified the wolf voiced »

Following on from the Sdcc red band trailer, three new character images for the long-awaited Sin City: A Dame to Kill For have arrived online, featuring new cast addition Eva Green (Ava Lord) and returning stars Mickey Rourke (Marv) and Jessica Alba (Nancy). Take a look…
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

A new red band trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' has made its way online once more bringing to vibrant life the pages of Miller's original graphic novel. Highlights include a well shadowed Eva Green in the nude, a sword slicing happy Jamie Chung, Jessica Alba's shuddering buttocks, and plenty of shooting, explosions, stripping and other noir goodness. 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' stars Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin ('Oldboy'), Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), Jaime King, Juno Temple ('Magic Magic'), Dennis Haysbert, Alexa Vega, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Joseph Gordon-Levit ('Looper') and Jeremy Piven ('Entourage'). »
Eva Green is apparently too hot for ABC. The network has rejected an ad for the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” because of two scenes in which the “Penny Dreadful” actress appears to be naked, a spokesperson for Dimension Films, the movie's distributor, told TheWrap on Tuesday. Dimension is appealing the network's decision not to run the ad, the spokesperson added. See video: ‘Sin City’ Women Kick Ass in ‘A Dame to Kill For’ Red Band Trailer In the film, based on Frank Miller‘s “Sin City” graphic novels, Green portrays Ava Lord, who's attempting to escape. »

Ja from Mnpp here. My boyfriend likes to tease me that he loved Eva Green first, and he did - he loved her the first time she showed up on some red carpet wearing long glamorous sleeves in a sea of bared skin. It's not that you can exactly call Eva Green demure - the first time any of us saw her she was taking a bath with her on-screen brother while pawing at Michael Pitt's genitalia after all, and earlier this year she toplessly mounted Sullivan Stapleton while swinging around a sword for god's sake. Not to mention the bizarre throwback moral brouhaha that's currently been greeting every piece of art-work associated with her Sin City: A Dame To Kill For character - hide the children, there are breasts!
So no, demure's not really the word for her. But dive as she does, time and again, into these depths of gorgeous depravity, »
From the haunted Vanessa Ives of Penny Dreadful to the fearless warrior Artemisia of 300: Rise of an Empire and the psychotic sexpot Angelique Bouchard of Dark Shadows, Eva Green is an actress who revels in the dark dance of macabre characters. So it should come as little surprise that she's said to be circling the title role in Tim Burton's in-development adventure Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Variety reports that Eva Green has entered into talks to headline Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which Chernin Entertainment is producing. Adapted from the novel by Ransom Riggs, this movie is eying a production start date of February 2015. So Burton and his producers are likely eager to start locking down talent. Should she sign on, Green would be reteaming with Burton for the first time since Dark Shadows. While critics appreciated her willfully campy portrayal in »
When Eva Green appeared in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows it was one of those ‘How has this not happened before?’ moments. Burton was probably under the same impression, for he’s now looking to cast her as the lead in his adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. The story is a striking blend of narrative and archive photography and should make an intriguing project for the director. The maker of Edward Scissorhands shooting a movie about a group of dispossessed orphans being chased by monsters on a Welsh island? The idea could have been extrapolated from the sweat in his thinking cap.
Green is in talks to play Peregrine, a transmogrifying woman from the 1940s who watches over the younglings of the title. If everything is ironed out it’ll be another eye-catching role for this lovely yet unsettling actress, who is also due »

The latest UK quad poster for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' has been unleashed once more featuring the gang of main characters from the crime noir comic book follow-up. From left to right we have the taut buttocks of Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), the chrome domed Josh Brolin ('Oldboy'), the chisel chinned Mickey Rourke, the beautiful Eva Green ('Dark Shadows'), the stunning Jessica Alba, the beaten mush of Joseph Gordon-Levit ('Looper') and the sour faced Bruce Willis. 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' will slickly slip into theatres late this August. Check out the new poster below. »
French starlet Eva Green – fresh off her appearance in Robert Rodriguez’ latest Sin City chapter – is currently in talks to reunite with her Dark Shadows director Tim Burton for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The movie – which is an adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ debut novel – tells the story of Jacob, a young boy who following a horrific family tragedy follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island, where he must protect a group of orphans with intriguing powers.
The book – originally published in June 2011 – has been listed on the New York Times bestseller list. Eva Green is set to play the titular role, who is somewhat of a guardian to the orphans in their struggle against strange creatures hell bent on destroying them.

San Diego - When we last left "Penny Dreadful's" most eligible bachelors things weren't necessarily coming up roses. Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) had transformed into a werewolf type creature (although it turns out he isn't aware of what happens to him when he "blacks out" and goes wild) and suffered through the death of his lover, Brona Croft (Billie Piper). Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) had his heart unceremoniously broken by Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and found himself once more immortal and alone. Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) couldn't kill the Creature (Rory Kinnear) he created that was threatening to destroy everyone around him. Instead, he took Ms. Croft's life earlier than her terminal sickness would have allowed so that he could properly transform her into a "bride" for his monstrous creation. These gentlemen of questionable morals and virtues are three reasons why John Logan's Showtime series is so fascinating. »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has released a new red-band trailer online, demonstrating just how little has changed in the moral cess-pool from which the film takes its name… In terms of plot, the new trailer establishes Powers Booth’s crooked senator as the big bad of the piece, before hurtling off into an orgy of severed limbs, push-up bras and badass one-liners. Eva Green looks more than likely to steal the show here as Sin City’s latest femme fatale, while there’s also a first look at Lady Gaga, seen here helping Joseph...

After scaring the pants off us throughout Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, Eva Green is heading back into spooky, supernatural territory, with news that she’s in talks to topline Tim Burton’s upcoming Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Adapted from the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children follows a teenage boy who travels to a mysterious island following his grandfather’s unexpected death. There, he finds a group of orphans with extraordinary powers, individuals who his grandfather told him stories of but whom the boy never believed to be real. After meeting the orphans’ enigmatic headmaster (Green), he works to protect his new acquaintances from creatures out to destroy them.
As a fan of the novel, I’m excited to hear that Green is coming aboard. She’s a terrific character actress, and her ability to unsettle and beguile »

One of Eva Green's most memorable outfits is causing controversy…again! The actress is getting heat for the sexy look she pulls off in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. ABC believes the sheer white robe worn by the actress in movie trailers and teaser posters makes her "appear to be naked" in two quick scenes. As a result, the network has rejected the trailer from airing on its stations. Their decision comes after the Motion Picture Association of America decried a similar poster featuring Green's sexy look. The movie's marketing team tried to stick to its guns, but ultimately made Green's robe somewhat more modest in an edited version. According to ABC, »
