fast 8 charlize theron

UPDATE: Variety says Charlize Theron has also been confirmed for the Fast 8 cast, in the role of a villain. Read our earlier report on her (then unconfirmed) casting here.

Dom Toretto and his “family” have generally come out on top against every foe they’ve faced, but the next Fast and Furious villain may not be shaken so easily, considering he’s faced down much worse. Like magical ice zombies and humorless brothers in black. Yep, it’s another Game of Thrones alum snagging another big splashy action role. Kristofer Hivju has been recruited to play a bad guy in Fast 8, making him the first new addition to the cast.  Read More »

Young Adult

Charlize Theron has had some pretty great roles in her time, but one of her best was in Jason Reitman‘s Young Adult. She was mesmerizing as as selfish and troubled writer Mavis Gary, with help from some sharp dialogue written by Diablo Cody. So it comes as fantastic news to hear the team’s thinking of getting back together again. Theron is reportedly eyeing a new project written by Cody, which Reitman will direct.  Read More »

the huntsman winter's war clips

The most important thing about The Huntsman: Winter’s War is that there is at least one scene where Emily Blunt rides a polar bear. This was true when the first trailer arrived last month and it continued to be true when the second trailer arrived last week. This film seems to offer its fair share of pleasures for all kinds of people – the astonishingly handsome Chris Hemsworth strutting about with just enough chest exposed, the lovely Jessica Chastain kicking all kinds of ass in black leather, the incredible Charlize Theron vomiting black goo all over the place – but I’m buying a ticket because Emily Blunt is a literal ice queen who rides a fantasy polar bear. How did this movie gain access to the darkest corners of my brain?

Anyway, a batch of new The Huntsman: Winter’s War clips have arrived and one of them is entirely about Emily Blunt and her polar bear. Be still, my pounding heart.

Huntsman Winter's War trailer

Sunday was the first official day of spring, so naturally Universal is celebrating with a trailer that’s all about winter. The Huntsman: Winter’s War takes Eric the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) back before they met Snow White, to a time when he got caught up in the battle between Ravenna and her sister Freya (Emily Blunt).

As one of Freya’s loyal protectors, Eric is forbidden to fall in love with a fellow Huntsman — but that rule becomes awfully difficult to follow when he sets eyes on Sara (Jessica Chastain). Watch the Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer below.

Kubo and the Two Strings Trailer

The sheer beauty and wonder of stop-motion animation from LAIKA will never cease to amaze me. A new trailer for their latest project, Kubo and the Two Strings, has just arrived, and as the animation studio’s first epic, the visual are truly stunning. The intricacy of the animation makes you wonder why LAIKA takes the time do make these movies in stop-motion animated, but if you’ve seen any of their movies, you know that it gives it a certain homemade quality that makes it that much more special.

the huntsman winter's war trailer

The most important thing to understand about the new The Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer is that there are at least two shots where Emily Blunt, playing a literal ice queen named Freya, rides a polar bear. Now, I’m not sure what you value in life, but Emily Blunt as an ice-blasting sorceress sitting astride a polar is the kind of thing that can get us through a dark and lonely day. That’s some serious D&D shit right there.

The rest of the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War isn’t nearly as inspiring, looking like a half-baked rehash of the already half-baked Snow White and the Huntsman. And yet it’s hard to find too much to hate about a movie that somehow managed to wrangle Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chasten, and Emily Blunt (on a polar bear!) into the same ensemble.

fast 8 charlize theron

There is nothing the Fast and Furious series loves more than squeezing more big names and memorable faces into its already jam-packed ensemble. Fast Five brought an impossibly sweaty Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into the testosterone-heavy mix. Furious 7 introduced Jason Statham as a vengeful villain who managed to beat the stuffing out of our seemingly unstoppable heroes. Now, in a display of good taste that may be just a little too obvious, Fast 8 is currently wooing Oscar-winner Charlize Theron for a new role.

Kubo and the Two Strings trailer

After CoralineParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls, in LAIKA we trust. The animation studio made three ambitious, distinct stop-motion animated movies, films that aren’t always afraid of scaring children. They trust kids to be brave as their protagonists, which is rare for anyone making family movies. As proven by the this wonderful full-length Kubo and the Two Strings trailer, the company hasn’t changed their ways and this looks to be their biggest film to date.

Mad Max Fury Road Honest Trailer

Will George Miller make another Mad Max sequel? What will it be called? When will it happen? This Mad Max story has nothing to do with all of that hoopla.
