The image you see above is the first look at Amber Heard as she appears in the Robert Rodriguez film Machete Kills. The movie is, as you likely know, the sequel to 2009′s Machete, which was itself an expansion of the very entertaining “fake” trailer that appeared in the Rodriguez/Tarantino effort Grindhouse.
After the break, we’ve got more info on Machete Kills, as well as:
- Tyler Perry will get another film as Alex Cross,
- Warner Bros. sends a new corporate overseer down to keep tabs on Mad Max: Fury Road,

That’s a new banner for The Expendables 2, above, and it does just about as good a job as it could possibly do informing audiences of who is in the film. Click for a larger version, and break out the measurement tools to check out the photoshop work that seems to have re-sized a few of the heads. I wonder if those with a proper head-to-body proportion got paid more? Probably. That could be a good new metric for evaluating movie posters.
In addition to that, after the break you’ll find:
- Trivia about Donnie Yen passing on The Expendables 2
- Jack O’Connell joins the 300 prequel/sequel
- Alex Garland considers two sequels to Dredd
- A few basic set photos have hit from Mad Max: Fury Road
- and we’ve got three new TV spots and a poster for The Bourne Legacy.

In a move sure to start some controversy, George Miller has decided not to shoot his new film Mad Max: Fury Road in 3D. Instead the film, which stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theorn, will be post converted from 2D to 3D. Production just began in Nambia. Read more after the jump. Read More »
It looks like this new Mad Max film is really happening, at long last. George Miller wrote and has planned to direct Mad Max: Fury Road, but the production has been delayed to the point where we wondered if it might evaporate in the African sun. The film has been discussed as the possible kick-off of a new trilogy, but first it has to shoot.
Stars Tom Hardy (who plays the new Mad Max) and Charlize Theron have both said shooting starts within weeks, and Theron has been spotted sporting a closely-cropped haircut, presumably for the role.
Now Fury Road has added another actor: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who made the jump from Victoria’s Secret model to actress thanks to Michael Bay and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Read More »
Last week in London I had the opportunity to sit at a table with other journalists and interview Prometheus star Charlize Theron.
Charlize talks the evolution of the script from when she first read it to shoot, the secrecy of the production, the brilliance of working on practical sets vs. cg, the extent that Ridley Scott went to make everything feel real, gives a little bit of insight into the backstory of her character, being frightened by the unknown, deciding not to rewatch the Alien films before shooting, having fun with Fassbender in between takes on set, theories about her character, the delivery of dialogue, preparing for Mad Max: Fury Road, making big movies vs. making smaller movies, producing tv projects with Ridley Scott and David Fincher, the attraction to do tv over films, her obsession with HBO and Game of Thrones, finding time to take a vacation, and much more.
Read the entire interview after the jump. It contains only very minor spoilers (I have made any mild spoilers invisible, you need to highlight to reveal).
