Charlize Theron News

Review: 'Dark Places' Starring Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Christina Hendricks, Tye Sheridan & Chloe Grace Moretz Everyone enjoys a brief opening paragraph, so why don't we spend it listing all the things that "Dark Places," from director Gilles Paquet-Brenner ("Sarah's Key"), gets right. Its cast is undoubtedly committed, particularly a convincingly grimy Charlize Theron, and an enjoyably off-the-leash Chloe Grace Moretz, though it feels like they signed on to different films, and continued under that misapprehension all the way through shooting. Christina Hendricks is decent in a frumpy role that is sold from under her by the film's last-act twists.

George Miller Was Thinking About a Female Mad Max in 1985 Imperator Furiosa was the break-out character in Mad Max: Fury Road, with Max himself at times taking a back-seat to Charlize Theron’s one-armed warrior. And in a 30-year-old interview that has been published for the first time today, it seems writer-director George Miller was trying to figure out how to work such a character into the universe back in 1985. Speaking to Anne Bilson for a feature that was due to run in Time Out before being bumped in favour of an article about Orson Welles' death, Miller is asked if there could ever be a female version of Mad Max.

Because of its many strong female characters and the fact that Charlize Theron's Furiosa pretty much takes center stage from Tom Hardy's titular Road Warrior, George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road is being hailed as a "feminist blockbuster". This hasn't gone down too well with MRAs (lol), and has led to quite a few idiotic questions during the movie's press circuit. One such question was aimed at Tom Hardy earlier this month at Cannes. Skip to the 9:45 mark to hear it, and Hardy's response. Peter Howell: I have a question for Tom Hardy.

Charlize Theron plays Imperator Furiosa, a key figure in George Miller's intoxicating action fever dream, "Mad Max: Fury Road," and we sat down to talk to her about the role, the film's surprising feminist subtext, and shooting that unbelievable mayhem.http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured
