"Ultraviolet" Photo Update!

Navigate your way over to the "Ultraviolet" movie page to see stills from the futuristic actioner starring Milla Jovovich, opening this week!

"Ultraviolet" is set in the late 21st century, when a mysterious genetic mutation has created a subcommunity of super smart, super strong super people — causing a panicky government to try to eradicate them all. Enter Violet (Milla Jovovich), one such "hemophage" bent on protecting a young boy while exacting revenge on the people behind the epidemic.

Click here to see the vivid colors and action shots of "Ultraviolet," written and directed by Kurt Wimmer (whose "Equilibrium" employed a similar minimalist future setting as well as an innovative hybrid martial art style). Jovovich, of course, looks great in action (recall her performance in "The Fifth Element"), wields a samurai-looking sword (a la "Kill Bill") and sports a long, black don’t-mess-with-me hairdo (eerily similar to the one she wore in "Zoolander").

For those interested, a few intriguing details about "Ultraviolet" from the production notes:

Writer-director Kurt Wimmer envisioned "Ultraviolet" as an updated comic-book twist on John Cassavetes’ "Gloria" (1980), a mob tale about a former mobster’s girlfriend on the run protecting a young boy (remade in 1999 with Sharon Stone).

"Ultraviolet" was shot entirely in High-Definition.

According to costume designer Joseph Porro, Milla Jovovich has "a great body." Shocker.

"Ultraviolet" also stars Cameron Bright, Nick Chinlund, and William Fichtner and opens March 3.
