Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Julianne Moore -- our five most recent winners in this category -- all have extremely baiting new films coming out this year, and it's entirely possible that they all come back and make this an epic race of almost all very recent winners. Could they be joined by a slightly less recent winner if Charlize Theron pulls a Sigourney Weaver and gets an all-too-rare (and extremely deserved) nomination for an action film with "Mad Max: Fury Road." Of those six potential nominees, two of them are in films we've already seen at either festivals or in theaters, and they join a very impressive roster of other lead performances that have already seen the light of day (or dark of the movie theater, as it were). There's actually considerably more contenders here that we've already seen than in the Best Actor category, »

After her iconic performance in Mad Max: Fury Road, it doesn't surprise me to see the fantastic Charlize Theron take on another challenging role. And you can't get much farther from "Furiosa" than her character "Libby Day" in Dark Places. Based on the bestselling book by Gillian Flynn, the film takes a look at the effects of a horrible crime on the... Read More »

A few days later, SpectreVision’s The Boy arrives on VOD and one of my personal favorite films of 2015, the spunky post-apocalyptic action adventure tale Turbo Kid, will be released on August 28th. »

It’s impressive enough that most actors can go from role to role in quick succession. But the world likes to freak out when that transition is visible. With the release of the new boxing film Southpaw last weekend, the internet has been filled with videos and gifs of Jake Gyllenhaal’s transformation into a boxer. It took five months of training for Gyllenhaal to go from his skinny, un-muscled frame that we saw in Nightcrawler to his extremely toned and six-packed self in Southpaw. An impressive feat, but that doesn’t totally explain the complete awe and fascination. Sure, it is Jake Gyllenhaal we’re talking about. Attractive: yes. A talented actor: heck yes. So why are people really only talking about the physical transformation and not so much the mental?
Obviously this isn’t the first time people have fawned over an actor who has gone through such »

And baby makes two! Charlize Theron has adopted her second child, an African-American baby girl named August, who was born in the United States in July, a source confirmed to E! News Saturday. August joins big brother Jackson, 3, who is also African-American. Theron, who was born and raised in South Africa and lives in Los Angeles, adopted him in 2012. Theron, who is notoriously private about her personal life,had opened up about the lengthy wait before she was allowed to bring Jackson home, in an emotional interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "My mom said the most beautiful thing. I'm going to cry," Theron said. "She said…'It took me nine months to »
Wow! Have we seen some unexpected things at the cinema this year! Shocking movie scenes are the things of legend. When they happen, they can make the film a "must see" or a "must leave." Quite simply, they are the thing that oftentimes get us to fork over our hard earned loot. And other times, they have us closing our eyes, squirming in our chair, or reaching for that empty popcorn bag to use as a vomit catcher!
Despite how many times we see a shocking scene, we never grow tired of them. Sure, not every movie can be The Crying Game or The Sixth Sense, but many times we will settle for merely a 'good' shock simply because so few films have them. As any discerning movie watcher will tell you, a shocking moment in and of itself isn't enough to make a movie good. However, if it works »
Charlize Theron has become a mom for the second time, according to reports. In July, the actress adopted an African-American baby girl born in the United States. As for the new bundle of joy's name, Charlize chose a seasonal favorite: August. The news means Charlize's son, 3-year-old Jackson, is now a big brother. It's been more than three years since Charlize adopted Jackson, which she announced in March 2012. This isn't the first time Charlize's personal life has grabbed headlines in recent months - she reportedly split from boyfriend Sean Penn in June. The former couple reunited in South Africa on Wednesday to film reshoots of their upcoming movie, The Last Face. Congratulations on your new baby, Charlize! »

Ever since Marvel announced their massive Phase Three slate back in October, there has been plenty of speculation about who will play Captain Marvel. A number of actresses have been rumored for the role, such as Vikings star Katheryn Winnick, Jessica Chastain, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Blunt. As of now, the project doesn't even have a director attached yet, but Marvel did bring on Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) to write the script. Today, a new rumor surfaced from Meet the Movie Press, that claims Emily Blunt has in fact signed on as Captain Marvel.
This hasn't been confirmed yet, but Heroic Hollywood's El Mayimbe believes that Marvel is "aiming higher" for the role of Carol Danvers. Back in April, a report surfaced that the studio wanted Charlize Theron to star as Captain Marvel, with Angelina Jolie eyed to direct. The report was never confirmed, »
After two straight weeks atop the box office, Marvel's Ant-Man will surely be dethroned this weekend, with the arrival of two new releases, Paramount's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and New Line Cinema's Vacation. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation will easily take the top spot, somewhere in the low $50 million range, in its first week in theaters. The fifth installment of the lucrative Mission: Impossible franchise is heading into theaters with a strong wave of critical buzz, with a 93% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though Vacation debuted on Wednesday, and the reviews haven't been favorable (25% "Rotten" rating), it should still easily take the second place spot.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opens in 3,956 theaters today, with action icon Tom Cruise reprising his role as Ethan Hunt for the fifth time. He is joined by stars of 2011's Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, along with a »

Gone Girl, David Fincher’s 2014 adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name, was among my favorite films of last year. Although the performances were strong and Fincher proved why he’s one of the best in the business, the real star was Flynn: she wrote the screenplay, and her fast and funny dialogue was what made the film tick. The narrative was a compelling and sordid tale, but the witty barbs the characters constantly offered up were what best propelled Gone Girl through its two and a half hour running time.
By contrast, Flynn didn’t write the screenplay for Dark Places (French filmmaker Gilles Paquet-Brenner, who also directed it, did), and her gallows humor is sorely lacking throughout the film. On the surface, the plot sounds no less intriguing than the twisted yarn at the heart of »

Well this could've been awkward. Exes Charlize Theron and Sean Penn were spotted looking fairly tense while filming re-shoots on the South African set of their flick, The Last Face. The duo has been hard at work on the future flick since last year, where they were seen together in Cape Town shooting an action scene. Penn is directed the movie, while Theron stars alongside Javier Bardem and Blue Is the Warmest Color's Adele Exarchopoulos. The photos mark the first time that the two have been spotted together since the news of their split went public mid-June. At the time, multiple sources confirmed to E! News that the two Oscar winners had ended their »
Sean Penn and Charlize Theron started dating in late 2013, got engaged in 2014, and broke up last month after she reportedly ghosted the hell out of him. Now they've reunited for reshoots on the Penn-directed, Theron-starring The Last Face, which means both of them are forced to spend uncomfortably long hours literally reenacting things they once did together as a happy couple. Look at their faces: This is the darkest breakup time line. »

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron were back together Wednesday after they were forced to reunite in South Africa for re-shoots on the set of their movie ... six weeks after they ended their engagement. To make matters worse ... Penn's the director of "The Last Face" and Theron's the star ... so he's her boss. Not awkward in the slightest. Theron and Penn broke things off back in June after getting engaged in December 2014. Read more »

Diablo Cody, a.k.a. Brook Maurio, won an Oscar for writing "Juno" in 2007, but since her hailed debut, she's delivered more complicated, unconventional, and hair-raising movie scripts featuring women in starring roles. "Jennifer's Body" gave us Megan Fox as a zombified cheerleader; "Young Adult" offered up Charlize Theron as a jaded, sociopathically self-absorbed writer who pines for her high school boyfriend. Even 2013's "Paradise," Cody's directorial debut starring Julianne Hough, focused on a religious woman who rebuilds her life in Las Vegas following a traumatizing accident. Now, Cody's giving us yet another antiheroine with "Ricki and the Flash," her new film starring Meryl Streep as a rocker and wayward mother who returns to her Midwestern roots when daughter Julie (Mamie Gummer, Streep's real-life daughter) experiences a devastating breakup. With director Jonathan Demme at the helm and a spellbinding cast (Streep, Gummer, Kevin Kline, Rick Springfield, Audra McDonald, and more »

The show must go on! Charlize Theron and Sean Penn were forced to reunite following their June 2015 split for reshoots of their upcoming flick, The Last Face, on Wednesday, July 29, in South Africa.

Us Weekly exclusively revealed the 39-year-old actress and 54-year-old actor called off their engagement this past June. The pair, who first stepped out together in [...] »
