Eva Green’s Banned Promo Poster May Benefit Her Career
The Orlando Sentinel has an interesting take on the controversy that started when the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) blocked producers of the sequel to the film “Sin City” from using a poster featuring actress Eva Green. The poster in question shows the French actress revealing the curvature of one of her breasts through a sheen covering while her areola is clearly visible on the other breast. The temperature rising photograph proved too much for the MPAA and they banned the use of the image altogether.
The Orlando Sentinel believes that the increased attention Green has received will boost viewership for her current role in the Showtime series “Penny Dreadful”. The show airs on Sundays at 10:00PM local time and is an adult horror period piece set in Victorian England. Other famed legends of the macabre are represented in the series including Dorian Gray of the aging portrait and Dr. Frankenstein. For her part, Green plays the role of Vanessa Ives, a psychic of extraordinary clairvoyance whom dark forces seek to exploit. The series is currently in its fourth episode and Green is said to be riveting in the role.
The unknown “cruel spirit” that is increasingly manifesting itself in Ives made for a chilling séance during episode two as it took a very physical toll on the psychic. “Penny Dreadful” is a new take on familiar characters with a new twist. The series rolls on with the dark secrets held close by each character are slowly revealed. The main take of the Orlando Sentinel is that Eva Green is a top-notch actress. Perhaps she has been underrated since starring in the 2006 blockbuster “Casino Royale”, but her starring role in the sequel to 300 earlier this year proved she is A-list material. Nobody doubts her sex appeal and it looks as if the banned poster will help turn people on to her acting skills.
