Charlize Theron is having a pretty decent month. She’s the star of Show White and the Huntsman, which opens Friday, as well as Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, which opens next Friday June 8. From there, she’s heading to Africa to shoot Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy and directed by George Miller. That’s about what you’d expect for an Oscar-winner who is sought after for almost every female role in Hollywood today.
/Film attended the London junket for Prometheus and while Theron spoke plenty about that film (we’ll run the full, spoiler-filled, interview next week) she also talked about her excitement at finally getting to shoot Mad Max, a film that has had a tumultuous time making it in front of cameras. She commented on if the script changed in that time, how violent it will be and how her character is different from anything she’s ever done. Read her quotes after the jump. Read More »

We’re less than a month away from my #1 anticipated film in a great, great year of movies: Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. The sort-of Alien prequel starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron opens June 8 and the news of its R-rating is just the latest in a long line of fantastic updates on the 3D, sci-fi epic.
The latest comes from Entertainment Weekly, the May 18 issue of which (out Friday), will be graced by the film. While the story itself has yet to come online, they’ve updated their site with 17 new looks at the sets, costumes and stars of the highly anticipated summer film. Check them out below. Read More »
I think I’m at the point where I have to stop watching new Prometheus materials. With last night’s long international trailer, the footage cut into new clips seems to have tipped from suggestive to all-out demonstrative. In other words, Fox is ready to show much more of Ridley Scott‘s hand. I’d rather see that in the full film, and so I’m shutting down my own viewing for now.
But I know there are many who want to see all they can. And so here’s the latest in Prometheus marketing: a featurette similar to one we ran last week. This time, the focus isn’t on how awesome Ridley Scott is, but more on what he and screenwriters Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof came up with for the film. Check it out below, and if the paragraph above isn’t warning enough, beware slight spoilers. Read More »
Briefly: Rupert Wyatt didn’t exactly come out of nowhere to direct Rise of the Planet of the Apes, as he already had his name on The Escapist and Subterrain. But the unlikely success of his Apes prequel definitely put him on the map for a lot of audiences. Wyatt is tapped to make another Apes movie for Fox, but he’s also making other deals.
The latest is a project called Agent 13 that, if given a green light, would have Wyatt directing Charlize Theron in a sci-fi action story scripted by T.S. Nowlin. Read More »
We’ve gone from being ravenous for every bit of footage we can get from Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus to being at a point where we might actually be sated until the film’s June 8 opening. I know I don’t want to see too much more than what we’ve been shown in the collection of footage that landed in the past week.
But I’ll take a just a few new spots, including a dire warning from Charlize Theron and a demonstration of the affection between Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green. Those bits and a couple more are part of the new stuff in the first TV spot for Prometheus, which you can see below. The other notable part of this spot is that it finally puts the word Alien right in the marketing for this movie, which acts as a prequel to the 1979 film. Read More »
Here’s the latest trailer for Universal’s version of the Snow White story: Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron as the evil queen, and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman who rebels against the queen’s wishes, and spares Snow’s life. We also finally get to see a lot more of the Dwarfs, played by actors such as Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Ray Winstone, and Nick Frost.
But the new trailer isn’t alone. There is also a five-minute extended story reel that shows a lot more than we’ve seen before, presented in a quick-cut montage. Now the film’s LotR-like ambitions are even more clear, and the suggestion that this might be an entertaining and creature-filled adventure comes through loud and clear.
Update: Evidently the current embeds are not viewable outside the US. We have no control over that, and when something better is available we’ll drop it in and remove this note.
