Now we’ve got your attention we’d like to talk about sex in films.
The idea of sex dominates our society. Advertising hinges on presenting an idealised life and so often that idealised life is realised through sexuality; everything, from soft drinks to hotel comparison websites use the promise of sex to get you to buy their products. Heck, it’s seemingly the only way to sell deodorant.
When films deal with sexual themes it’s less to present a idealised reality (the sort of films that do can only be shown in special cinemas) and more to either to provide entertainment for the audience or to comment on some little talked area of our society. The former sounds quite vulgar, but it’s remarkably common; can you imagine Eva Green would have spent so much of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For naked »

Shailene Woodley can afford to take risks. The actress first earned attention in Alexander Payne's "The Descendants," kept the buzz going with a tender turn in "The Spectacular Now" and proved she could sell tickets at the box office with the double whammy of "Divergent" and "The Fault In Our Stars" this year. So yes, the actress has been afforded some flexibility in her career choices, and coming up next is Gregg Araki's "White Bird In A Blizzard." The drama co-stars Eva Green, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Christopher Meloni and more, and follows a seventeen year-old girl whose life starts spinning out of control when her mother disappears. It's a dream-like movie (read our review), heavy on style and atmosphere, but also comes with a sharp, distinct tone. And you can see them in these two clips, which find Woodley and Green going head-to-head. "White Bird In A Blizzard »

The movie, which is sold by TrustNordisk and world premiered out of competition at Cannes, is a 19th-century-set Scandinavian Western starring Mads Mikkelsen as a Danish settler who is on a journey to avenge his family.
“There is no doubt that ‘The Salvation’ has found a perfect home at Upie who we are sure will give the film the best possible launch. This also strongly indicates that the international market place is more than ready for a western of Scandinavian origin”, said Wendt.

One of TV’s best surprises this year was Showtime’s deliciously scary, sexy drama Penny Dreadful, a richly imagined series boosted to must-see levels by the go-for-broke performances turned in by star Eva Green week after week. And though we won’t see a second season until next year, Showtime is already giving us more reasons to be excited about Penny Dreadful‘s sophomore run. Today, the network announced that Patti LuPone has joined the show’s cast in a key role.
LuPone, a Broadway-honed actress and veteran of the small screen who recently appeared on American Horror Story: Coven and Girls, is on board as a guest star, playing a mysterious character from Vanessa’s (Green) past. No further details on her character were made available.

Patti LuPone’s run on American Horror Story: Coven fizzled out courtesy of a rather lackluster climax for her character, but she’ll get another opportunity to go big in the realm of small screen supernatural horror soon enough because Showtime just announced that she’s joining the cast of Penny Dreadful as a guest star. It was also officially announced that season 1 vets Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale are getting bigger roles this time around, joining Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, Danny Sapani and Harry Treadaway as series regulars. Hit the jump for more on what’s coming in Penny Dreadful season 2.

To say an actor is the best part of a film is usually meant as praise for the strength of their performance, not direct commentary on the quality of that film. To say that Sullivan Stapleton is the best part of a movie is, as of now, a statement that’s cause for concern. The Australian beefcake is likely best known to North American audiences for his role as the sentient marble statue that took over for Gerard Butler in the recent, dismal 300 sequel, where pitting him against a deliriously engaged Eva Green shone a spotlight on Stapleton’s charisma vacuum. You could blame the script and direction just as well, but handsome musclemen looking to climb out of the action movie heap often prove themselves worthy by doing more with less.
Saying Stapleton is the best part of Cut Snake would be a slam, were it not for the »

Autumn has always been my favorite time of year, and for the past few years, the pleasure of the arrival of crisp air and turning leaves has been increased, because it means that London Film Festival time has come around again. Though the public festival runs for 12 days — this year it’s October 8th though 19th — for the press it runs for a full month. (Press screenings will start on September 22nd.) It is a veritable orgy of cinema, and I love it. It’s exhausting, but I love it.
Yesterday morning the full program for the 58th BFI London Film Festival was announced. I already knew that two of my most anticipated films of the fall were on the slate: The Imitation Game, Headhunters director Morten Tyldum’s film about Alan Turing and the WWII Enigma codebreaking project, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the mathematician; and Fury, »
