Elektra

(2005)

From the pages of Marvel Comics, creator of "X-Men" and "Spider-Man," comes "Elektra," the first action event movie of the year. In the ultimate battle between good and evil stands a warrior who makes the choice that tips the balance.

Jennifer Garner stars in the title role as a strong, mysterious and sexy action heroine – a lethal synthesis of grace and power. Not long after recovering from seemingly mortal wounds, Elektra has severed all ties with the world, living only for her next assignment. But in an unexpected turn of events, she is forced to make a decision that can take her life in a new direction – or destroy her.

Key players in Elektra's journey are Stick, a blind martial arts master responsible for Elektra's "resurrection," and Mark Miller and Abby Miller, a father and daughter on the run from The Hand, a powerful syndicate whose members practice the dark martial art of ninjitsu.

One-on-one with Terence Stamp on ‘Elektra’

Terence Stamp is no stranger to comic books. In Elektra, he stars as the title character's mentor, a blind, mystic, sort of sage-warrior named "Stick," an old man that can see the future and raise the dead. All in a day's work. Before Elektra, of course, Stamp turned in one of the greatest villain-performances in comic book movie history, stealing each of his scenes in Superman II as the black-clad General Zod.

Even over the phone, from Switzerland, his voice rings loud, clear, and incisive. A polite English accent flutters through each word, and it's easy to visualize his patented imperial stare. Given his omniscient-sounding voice, it came as a shock to me—and to him—that before today, he hadn't yet heard of the new Superman film [due for Summer 2006]. But, now that he has, he's intrigued by the idea of again waging battle with the son of Jor-El...
