Meet Queue: Eva Green’s 5 Biggest Stream Roles
Let’s just say that Sin City: A Dame To Kill didn’t do well last weekend. The film debuted eighth at the box office, was panned by critics, and earned a meager $6.5 million. That said, there is one thing about the movie that people loved: Eva Green.
Eva Green has wowed audiences with her poise, glamor and intellectual appeal since appearing in the controversial film The Dreamers in 2003. She was quickly snapped up by Hollywood and over the years made a name for herself for herself playing sympathetic femme fatales. So you don’t have to go pay to see Sin City: A Dame To Kill to see Green playing a hypnotically seductive seductress. We’ve compiled the five streaming titles that are guaranteed to take your Eva Green obsession to the next level. It’s kind of like a “cute date” in a romance movie, but since it’s all streaming, we call it your “dating queue.”
Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
Ridley Scott was the first Hollywood heavyweight to cast the French actress in a major role. He made Green the beautiful, but sad, Christian princess Sibylla in his sumptuous reflection on the crusades, the kingdom of heaven.
Casino Royale (2006)
Eva Green cemented her place in movie history when she played the original Bond girl, Vesper Lynd, in the franchise’s glorious reboot, Casino Royale. Like all great film noir vixens, Green is able to combine strength and vulnerability to such an intoxicating extent that you never know if you can trust her or not.
Cracks is one of Green’s lesser-known films, but if it’s worth watching if you’ve ever wanted to see Eva Green play a glamorous teacher at an all-girls boarding school who may or may not sexually prey on a of his students. It is also streaming on Netflix.
Dark Shadows (2012)
Eva Green took on Johnny Depp in the wonderfully wacky remake of Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows – a film my colleague, Tyler Coates, describes as “The Ice Storm but with vampires, werewolves and witches”.
Terrible Penny (2014)
Everyone who’s famous should have at least one high-profile premium cable drama on their resume by now and Eva Green is Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. You can watch the entire first season of the gothic thriller on Showtime’s app, ShowtimeAnytime.
