atomic blonde review

In a nutshell: Atomic Blonde is about a badass, bisexual British secret agent who fights like John Wick and seduces like James Bond who travels to Germany days before the fall of the Berlin Wall to recover some stolen intelligence. She wears a number of amazing outfits, kills a whole bunch of bad guys, and just looks terrific as she struts through noisy nightclubs and desolate alleyways to a soundtrack of ’80s synth pop. It is excellent, two-fisted entertainment and further proof that Charlize Theron is one of our great modern action heroes.

In a smaller nutshell: Atomic Blonde is one of the most purely entertaining action movies coming out this year.

In Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron created one of the greatest action heroines of all time with Imperator Furiosa. So, no pressure on secret agent Lorraine Broughton, her character in the new Cold War spy thriller Atomic Blonde. However, if Theron is going to create another truly great cinematic badass, teaming up with one of the minds behind John Wick is a great start.

The first Atomic Blonde trailer has arrived ahead of its debut at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend and you can watch it below.

Deadpool 2 Domino

UPDATE: Well, that was fast. Deadpool and Deadpool 2 writer and executive producer Rhett Reese says there is no truth to this one:

Move on. Nothing to see here. The original rumor follows below.

Conversations and rumors surrounding who might play Domino in Deadpool 2 have been going on for months now. A new name in the mix for director David Leitch‘s (John Wick) sequel? Singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe, who starred in last year’s Moonlight and Hidden Figures, is now rumored as the frontrunner for the role.

Below, learn more about the Deadpool 2 Domino role.

I remember being a little bummed out that David Leitch and Chad Stahelski parted ways after co-directing John Wick, with the latter going on to tackle the incredible sequel on his own. However, Leitch is doing quite well for himself. He’ll be calling the shots on Deadpool 2 (he directed that teaser trailer that played before Logan), but before that, he’s delivering a thriller starring Charlize Theron as a British spy kicking ass during the Cold War.

Atomic Blonde will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend and the first trailer is set to arrive this Friday. But for now, we’ll make do with a new batch of photos and two new trailer teases, which feature Theron James Bond-ing (or is that John Wick-ing?) her way across Berlin on the eve of the Soviet Union’s collapse.

Last week, 20th Century Fox surprised us with a Deadpool 2 teaser trailer attached to Logan. Entitled “Deadpool: No Good Dead,” the three and a half minute short film follows Ryan Reynolds, reprising his role as Wade Wilson (AKA Deadpool), as he tries to save someone being robbed in an alley. You might have missed some of the fun references that filmmaker David Leitch and crew helped hide in the video, so let’s run down the Deadpool 2 teaser trailer easter eggs.

Secret Logan Trailer

It’s finally time for Logan to hit theaters, starting with sneak preview screenings tonight before playing everywhere tomorrow. Leading up to the release of the movie, there were rumors about a post-credits scene being included. That rumor seemed to be confirmed by an extension of the film’s running time by just a few minutes, and that was after it had already screened for press without and credits scenes present. But we learned that it would be something that played before the movie started instead of during or after the credits.

Now we have exclusively learned what the details of the secret teaser is that will be playing before Logan. If you want to avoid any spoilers for this secret Logan trailer, do not read after the jump. Read More »

Deadpool 2 Script

Last night, our friends at Collider landed a big scoop about The Grey and A-Team director Joe Carnahan being brought in to write the developing X-Force movie at 20th Century Fox. The mutant team includes Deadpool at the heart of the crew, and he’s frequently accompanied by characters like Cable and Domino, who are supposed to be part of Deadpool 2. So it should come as no surprise that they have the inside track on the development of the Merc with a Mouth’s anticipated sequel.

The studio has been pretty quiet about the development of Deadpool 2, aside from confirming John Wick co-director David Leitch as the replacement behind the camera for the departed Tim Miller, and that appears to be because co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are still hard at work on the script. In fact, they’ll be getting some help from another writer with comic book adaptation experience to finish the Deadpool 2 script. Read More »

‘John Wick 3’: Everything We Know So Far

John Wick 2 Shoot Date

Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014. I went into John Wick: Chapter 2 expecting to be amazed with the fight scenes (which I was), but I has not anticipated that I would walk out of the theater talking about the worldbuilding of this new film. John Wick 3 is already in development, and I’m very excited to see more chapters in this world.

Lets take a look at what may await us in John Wick: Chapter 3, pieced together from interview comments from director Chad Stahelski, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, actor Keanu Reeves, and more.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the batman director

Yesterday, Ben Affleck stepped down from directing The Batman. One day, someone is going to write a book explaining exactly what was going on behind-the-scenes at Warner Bros. that led to this revolving door of filmmakers on all of their projects. We’ll surely know someday. But not today.

So today is a day of speculation. As Matt Reeves and Mat Ross emerge as apparent frontrunners, it’s time to do that thing where we make a list of people who should direct the next Batman movie. Some of these names are totally plausible. Some are wishful thinking. Others are here just because the thought of them directing a big-budget superhero movie makes me giggle uncontrollably. Most of all, this an excuse for us to just goof off and daydream while Warner Bros. figures everything out.
