Casino Royale, A Poker Movie Starring Eva Green, Opens Today

Evagreen4_1Long before Wicked Chops Poker temporarily changed its name to Wicked Chops State Lotteries and subsequent to our difficult internal deliberations over renaming our site “Wicked Chops Trannies and Furries” (a transitional time in our lives), our site was called “Wicked Chops Baccarat,” albeit for only a few minutes (captured here) and only because we wanted to get a jump on the competition after hearing that the new Bond film starring Daniel Craig would be a remake of the first 007 book, Casino Royale, which centered upon a high-stakes game of Baccarat.

But as we’ve covered ad nauseam-ily–both here at WCP and last month in Bluff Magazine–the filmmakers behind the new Casino Royale went with No-Limit Texas Hold’em instead of Baccarat, because Baccarat is so yesterday, like Charles VIII France yesterday. And no doubt the change to poker would get people talking about the movie, like we did.

What really got us talking about the new Bond film though was not the poker part but the fact that French actress Eva Green is in it. Because she’s so pretty. Like Michelle Theaurieu, but with less vowels in her name, talk-to-us-in-French-baby-even-though-we-hate-the-way-French-people-sound-when-they-talk kind of pretty or perhaps you could say it’s a we-loved-you-in-the-movie-The Dreamers-and-not-just-because-you-were-naked-for-two-hours kind of way. Either way, we’re infatuated, and we’re going to see Casino Royale, which comes out tonight and set Bond records already in the UK (that’s where James Bond lives), solely because of Eva Green.

And yes, the poker scenes don’t hurt either because no matter how contrived they may be and how much the characters may look like avatars straight from PokerRoom.com, we’re betting they won’t seem nearly as contrived as the poker scenes in Lucky You, which we predict we’ll have a woman president and, dare we say, a woman major poker tournament winner before that film hits theatres.

But don’t just take our word for it though, especially considering we’re compromised parties because of our infatuation with Green. As the BBC America “Anglophenia” blog points out, critics are also gushing over the new Bond girl.

Eva_green2_1_1Consider the following from Anthony Lane of New Yorker:

“Vesper is played by Eva Green, who retains from her role in Bertolucci‚Äôs The Dreamers an unnerving blend of the fleshly and the spectral, and one thing she definitely is not is a Bond girl. Vesper is a Bond woman‚Äîa Bond Lady of Shalott, I would say, with all the sufferings of the world reflected in her dark-shadowed eyes.”

Yeh, that’s exactly what we were trying to say above about Eva.

And then there’s Todd McCarthy of Variety, who said:

“Shrewd and smart as well as gorgeous, Vesper Lynd is hardly the typical Bond girl (she never even appears in a bathing suit)”

And if you’re disappointed with the absence of such a scene, the NSFW video below of Eva from The Dreamers should make up for it.

And for photos of Eva from the new Bond film and the trailer for Casino Royale, check out our post here.
