the old guard review

If there’s one thing we can all agree on in these divisive times, it’s that the sight of Charlize Theron kicking some ass is fun.

Love & Basketball director Gina Prince-Bythewood has comic book properties on the brain. For a while, she was attached to direct a Silver & Black movie for Sony about Marvel characters Silver Sable and Black Cat (that project fell apart). She recently directed an episode of the Freeform series Cloak & Dagger. Now she’s directing The Old Guard, a Netflix movie adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez‘s comic book series about “a covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when their extraordinary abilities are exposed.”

Four new clips from the film have arrived ahead of the movie’s release next week, and you can watch them all below.

fury road sequel

We’ve all been eagerly awaiting a follow-up to George Miller‘s gonzo action masterpiece Mad Max: Fury Road, and it looks like we’re finally getting it. Eventually. Miller is still set to make the drama Three Thousand Years of Longing first, but after that’s in the can, he’s ready to return to the Mad Max world. And instead of a sequel, the next film is going to be a prequel focused on a younger Furiosa. This means – sadly – Charlize Theron isn’t returning.
