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.

With all the hullabaloo of San Diego Comic-Con, there’s so much to see and do that we don’t even have time to cover every single show we love. One of the programs that fell by the wayside for us over the weekend was Adult Swim’s incredible animated series Rick and Morty. It’s one of my favorite shows on TV right now and it killed me to miss it since the /Film crew had so much more to cover.
Thankfully, the internet is a helpful place, and you can pretend that you were at Comic-Con yourself by catching up on all the big updates that came from the Rick and Morty panel. That includes a new sneak peek behind the scenes of an episode that will take the titular duo to the Wasteland of Mad Max, details on some of the guest stars coming this season, and the triumph of co-creator Justin Roiland finally getting his hands on the retired McDonald’s Mulan Szechuan sauce.
Find out all the new details about Rick and Morty season 3 below. Read More »

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.

Foreign filmmakers blatantly ripping off Hollywood movies is a tradition with a rich and storied history. Name an American film that had a sizable cultural impact over the past fifty years and you are guaranteed to find an unofficial Turkish or Italian remake lurking somewhere on the fringes of the industry. While modern copyright laws have forced these low-budget rip-offs to get a little more creative in how they steal from larger movies, they still exist, offering a fascinating look at how other cultures absorb and interpret American cinema.
Now, China is adding to this glorious tradition with Mad Shelia, a Mad Max: Fury Road rip-off so shameless that it steals the original’s poster as well as its aesthetic and title.

Mad Max: Fury Road has reignited an interest in the post-apocalyptic desert setting of the Wasteland.

Wasteland Weekend has been running since 2010, combining the aesthetic of the Mad Max movies with the festivities of the desert insanity known as Burning Man. See the party in action after the jump. Read More »
The future of the Mad Max franchise has been a little uncertain at Warner Bros. Pictures. Even though the film was a massive critical success, it wasn’t a runaway hit at the global box office, only earning just over $378 million. Home video releases may have helped earn more, and Warner Bros. is already double dipping to maximize their profits by releasing Mad Max: Fury Road: Black and Chrome Edition. but there’s been no indication that the studio has gained more confidence in a sequel, However, a new rumor says a follow-up to the 2015 hit film may be coming sooner than we thought.
Straight out of Australia, a new report indicates that a Mad Max Fury Road prequel is currently in pre-production in Australia with filming potentially beginning before the end of the year. Find out more below. Read More »
