atomic blonde trailer

One of the panels that went overlooked at San Diego Comic-Con amidst all the major news and trailers from the rest of the convention was Entertainment Weekly‘s own “Women Who Kick Ass” panel. Usually, the panel features an ensemble of tough, badass women from movies and television, but this year’s panel focused on just one: Charlize Theron.

With Atomic Blonde in theaters this weekend, Charlize Theron continues to proved that she’s a certified action star. As Theron said during the panel, she sought out the movie herself because she wanted a very specific movie to play with, a movie where she could play a character who was “unapologetic and can play by the same rules as men.” Atomic Blonde is definitely that movie, and it opens up a possible franchise where Charlize Theron can keep returning as the secret agent over and over again.

Along with discussing the future of Atomic Blonde with Entertainment Weekly senior writer and panel moderator, Sara Vilkomerson, the actress also talked about a possible follow-up for Mad Max: Fury Road, what she thinks of the suggestion that she be the next James Bond, one of her proudest moments on screen, and what she wants to see from future female characters in movies.

fate of the furious movie connections

(Welcome to Movie Mixtape, where we find cinematic relatives and seek out interesting connections between new releases and older movies that allow us to rethink and enjoy what’s in our theaters as well as the favorites on our shelf. In this edition: F. Gary Gray’s The Fate of the Furious.)

The amount of movies you could watch alongside The Fate of the Furious is insane. The franchise has shifted drastically since its humble beginnings in 2001 as a street racing action flick where the biggest thing at stake was a warehouse filled with VCR/TV combos. So drastically, in fact, that the family has crossed a half-dozen genre lines, dropped cars from planes, and winked so thoroughly at superhero status that they belong in a Marvel cross-over.

The eighth incarnation of the Vin Diesel-fueled, Rock-improved series is either the best or worst of the films so far. It features Dominic Toretto (Diesel) being blackmailed by Cipher (Charlize Theron) to work against The Family (gasp!) and the rest of the world. The crew gets all the sexy vehicles and high tech gadgets they need to save us all, but will Dom ever be invited back to the family barbecue?

Hard to say. So let’s find some gems to binge alongside F8.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

mad max 5

Back in 2015, /Film stopped being a movie site and started being a Mad Max: Fury Road fan site for a little while. But can you blame us? Our favorite movie of that year struck a chord with movie fans all over the world, managing to appeal to action movie junkies and cineastes alike with its inventive filmmaking, wild performances, and rich attention to theme and detail. It remains one of the best movies I’ve seen in a theater in the past decade. So yeah, we’d welcome another entry in the series…and so would star Tom Hardy, who says he’s just waiting for someone to call him.
