"I'm a woman and can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I."
Robert Rodriguez made us wait an agonizingly long seven years before he felt that the script for the follow-up to Sin City was good enough to go into production, but the extra three months it took for him to choose the actress to play the femme fatale in the movie were almost unbearable. It was recently revealed that Eva Green has been selected to play Ava Lord in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, inspired casting that already has fans of the original movie and of the comic books created by Frank Miller salivating for opening day.
You can't have a great hero without a great villain. After all, it's the dastardly actions of the villains that provide the necessary obstacles for the heroes to overcome to achieve their greatness. But, just because a villain is evil to the core, that doesn't mean that she can't also be incredibly sexy. Help us choose the movies that have the hottest, the sexiest, the deadliest female villains.

Mirror Mirror has one of the best.
Can Armie's jacket beat all the rest?
By in large, women in the 21st century have more opportunities to wear fancy and elaborate clothing than men have.

Fans of high fantasy — fantasy that takes place on an epic scale in an imaginary world in which otherwise supernatural creatures and forces are simply a part of the natural environment — were all but left out in the cold in 2012, while superheroes, aliens and secret agents were free to run amok on the big screen. Where were all of the wizards, dragons and elves? Except for animated movies and the pair of Snow White adaptations, high fantasy movies have been noticeably absent from the Cineplex of late.
Thankfully, fans of the fantasy sub-genre will not have to wait much longer with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opening in only a matter of days and Russian director Sergei Bodrov's (Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan) new fantasy adventure, Seventh Son — that's a begrizzled Jeff Bridges in the hood and cloak above, playing an aging knight who must train a new apprentice (Ben Barnes) to help him battle a malevolent witch (Julianne Moore) that seeks to destroy him — debuting next year. In anticipation of the return of magic to movie theaters, help us rate the best high fantasy movies of all time (beyond time).

Bringing fairy tales to life is the new obsession in Hollywood, evidenced by the release of two live-action Snow White movies in 2012. The first, Relativity Media's Mirror, Mirror, will open at the end of this month, with Tarsem Singh (Immortals) directing a silly, candy-colored slapstick version while Rupert Sanders is directing the grittier and more action-oriented Snow White and the Huntsman, set to open in June. After Mirror, Mirror won the scheduling battle between the two movies last year, Singh publicly claimed that "two Snow White movies do not exist in this [movie] market," inferring that Snow White and the Huntsman's later release date meant that only Mirror, Mirror would succeed at the box office. In a recent interview with Collider, Sanders had the opposite reaction, seeing the competition as a possible benefit.

We’re probably both getting a lot more publicity because both films are out there, but they’re very different. I think there’s room for both of them. I hope we both succeed, and I hope that people want to see two versions. People love to go, "Oh, Hollywood is making two movies about the same thing. They’re so dumb." So, everyone talks about it and I think it helps the awareness of the projects.
Disappointed after watching the trailers for Relativity Media's Snow White adaptation of Mirror Mirror? You're not alone. Director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) is also unhappy with the bubblegum tone of the movie's promotional footage, which so far has revealed, amongst other transgressions, Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew falling subject to a "puppy love" potion given to him by the evil Queen (Julia Roberts) and one of the seven dwarfs declaring, "Snow White? Snow way!" as examples of the movie's humor. In an interview with Digital Spy, Singh expressed his anger over Mirror Mirror's trailers.

I'm really angry at the trailers. I'm a director, I guess, so I always get pissed at them! The movie looks fantastic and the trailers look so hammily off.
Based on the look of his last movie, the swords-and-sandals epic Immortals, you would think that the Snow White adaptation directed by Tarsem Singh would be the gritty, militant Snow White and the Huntsman and not Mirror Mirror, with its ethereal landscapes populated by whimsical characters with cotton candy hair. But proof that Singh is the man behind the fairy tale look of Mirror Mirror can be found in a collection of new images released by Relativity Media that includes several high-resolution stills from the movie and two behind-the-scenes shots of Singh offering direction to a beetle carapace–attired Nathan Lane and six of the seven dwarves that try to protect Snow White (Lily Collins) from the Evil Queen (Julia Roberts) who covets her youth, beauty, and throne. see the new images >> Posted 02.18.12 by BrentJS
We wouldn't be the first to admit that the first trailer for Relativity Media's Mirror Mirror was a little disappointing. More of a comedic adventure than its live-action Snow White rival, Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman, the jokes in Mirror Mirror's trailer seemed mostly stale and uninspired and the movie lacked the visual feast usually associated with director Tarsem Singh (Immortals).
After releasing a sneak peak featurette only days ago (and pushing the release date back two weeks), Relativity is looking to improve on its previous effort with a new international trailer, which focuses more on the adventure aspect of the movie as Snow White (Lily Collins) learns some fighting techniques from the seven dwarves (Mark Povinelli, Jordan Prentice, Danny Woodburn, Martin Klebba, Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark, and Joey Gnoffo) in order to battle the Evil Queen (Julia Roberts). watch the trailer >> Posted 01.29.12 by Ryan
Relativity Media drew first blood in the battle of the live-action Snow White movies by winning a scheduling chess match last year and grabbing a March 16 release date for Mirror, Mirror — months before Universal will release its Snow White and the Huntsman. Now, it appears Relativity wants a little bit more time, granting director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) another couple weeks and rescheduling Mirror, Mirror for March 30.
While Singh started shooting the movie last June, the move may have been more of a marketing decision. Previously, Mirror, Mirror, a comedic take on the Snow White story, was set to compete against the two other comedies — 21 Jump Street (which has been receiving good online buzz) and Butter — but will instead go up against against action sequel Wrath of the Titans and the animated The Pirates! Band of Misfits. see the new photo of Kristen Stewart as Snow White >> Posted 01.26.12 by Ryan
The battle of the Snow Whites continues to rage on. Two new posters were released for the Tarsem Singh-directed Mirror Mirror and they could not be more different from the posters that have been released for the rival Snow White and the Huntsman. From the posters and trailers, these two movies look about as similar as 28 Days and 28 Days Later.
While the posters for Snow White and the Huntsman are dark and dramatic, these posters for Mirror Mirror are light and pretty. Evil Queen Julia Roberts gives a cold and conniving, side-long look at Lily Collin's Snow White in one poster, and she's described as "One Bad Apple" in the other, but she certainly doesn't look like she's about to consume Snow's heart as part of her beauty regimen. Even though Robert's character isn't the most evil queen on the block, it turns out she almost didn't do the movie. More on what convinced Roberts to take on the role Posted 12.23.11 by Mandy
