Believe it or not, Margot Robbie says she wasn't always the hot property she is now.
The actress, who stars in thriller Z for Zachariah alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine, told The Guardian that she had to fight for her role - because she "didn't have enough international value".
"I was actually trying to get the role of Ann in Z for Zachariah before I had done Wolf (of Wall Street)", she said. "But because I hadn't done a large film, I didn't have enough international value to my name to get the film funded.
"So another actress was attached who had been in more bigger budget, commercial films. Ironically, you have to do the bigger films in order to make a small film."
Robbie, who has just wrapped filming on Suicide Squad, said that she considers all actors to have a "price tag".

There’s a reason audiences can’t get enough of the apocalypse. Stories about the end of days, about how men and women would fare in the face of societal collapse, compel for reasons both modern and ancient. How would people raised on easy access to technology survive if the power went out? Would a new stone age be the death of us, or would we resentfully learn to readjust? And what would that loss of connectivity mean for the fabric of civilization itself? Would humanity in isolation regress into savagery, or would we cling to our moral compasses with all our might?
Director Craig Zobel’s meditative, mesmerizing Z For Zachariah may not be the most action-packed of post-apocalyptic tales, but it has all these questions on its mind and more. Set in an Edenic valley that’s been mysteriously spared from the unexplained calamity that irradiated the rest of the planet, »

Read More: Review: Craig Zobel's 'Z for Zachariah' is Not Your Typical Post-Apocalyptic Romance With three feature films under his belt, filmmaker Craig Zobel isn't quite a veteran, but he's no longer a newbie. Zobel's first two features played to strong acclaim on the festival circuit — 2007's "Great World of Sound" played at New York's New Directors and New Films Festival and also earned Zobel the Breakthrough Director Awards at that year's Gotham Awards, while "Compliance" premiered at Sundance in 2012, going on to screen at Locarno, Deauville and BAMcinemaFest, among others — but neither rocketed the filmmaker to the top of blockbuster wish lists, as has become far more commonplace over the years. But the cast for Zobel's new film, "Z for Zachariah," comes complete with three big names from the blockbuster world, including Margot Robbie (soon to be seen in DC's "Suicide Squad"), Chris Pine of »

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.
“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”
Meanwhile, speaking to The Telegraph, Quinto revealed that Spock won’t share many scenes with Chris Pine’s Kirk in Beyond, »

The phrase “everything old is new again” takes on new meaning with the release of the three-hander Z For Zachariah, a post-apocalyptic story in which a nuclear war appears to have wiped out everyone except for a young Southern woman (Margot Robbie), a black man (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and a mysterious white man (Chris Pine) — seemingly the last three people on Earth, or at least in this corner of it. As I say in my video review (click the link above), I am not accusing writer… »
Much like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, plot details for Star Trek Beyond are still largely under wraps. Though we know the crew of the Enterprise will voyage into deep space, we don’t know what will happen to them. With the new day comes a new tidbit about the third installment of the rebooted franchise, and it looks like this one will be different than the previous installments, even if it’s only in terms of Spock and Kirk. Star Trek and Stark Trek Into Darkness honed in on Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto’s Spock, even though most of the characters got at least some time in the spotlight. For Star Trek Beyond, however, the Vulcan won’t be spending a lot of time with his buddy, turning his attention to Karl Urban’s Dr. Leonard "Bones& »
Following the success of his galvanizingly uncomfortable 2012 film Compliance, director Craig Zobel teases his way into genre with subtle sci-fi in Z for Zachariah, based on the novel from Robert C. O’Brien, author of the text that provided the basis for the children’s classic The Secret of Nimh (1982). Zobel’s third film, his meditative take on an oft explored scenario is an intriguing change of pace, and along with screenwriter Nissar Modi, the film retains a low-key, vintage flavor that belies the origins of the source material. Racial identity and issues of science vs. faith break the peaceful lulls of three individuals warped into the death throes of a dying species, but despite the allegorical possibilities, Zobel prefers a slow burn of tenuous desire to simmer into a sometimes underwhelming broth. And yet, it’s exactly the type »

Zachary Quinto, the "new" Spock, narrated a new Omaze video for the last week of the cast's charity campaign, with the winner landing a role as an extra in "Beyond." The lucky fan will be randomly chosen from the pool of donors, and funds will be split among nine organizations chosen by cast members, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
Leonard Nimoy was "passionate about" St. Jude's, Zachary noted in the tribute video, which honors the late star and asks for donations in his name:
Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the cast included. It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to call him a friend. Leonard's love for the human spirit showed in everything he did. »

Filmed on the bridge of the USS Enterprise, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba and stars of the blockbuster offer up a Vulcan salute to their co-star, who played Spock across TV and film over the course of five decades.
Quinto, who played a younger version of Nimoy's iconic character, led the video tribute by calling him "an actor, a champion of the arts, and a true inspiration to so many".
"Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists - myself and the rest of the cast included," Quinto said.
Omaze is a campaign supporting nine charities chose by the stars of Star Trek Beyond. St Jude Children's »
Last month, fans got an early look at Star Trek Beyond through a series of videos for the sequel's Omaze campaign. This initiative highlights nine worthy charities, each hand-picked by cast members, while giving a few lucky fans a chance to win a trip to the set. Since this is the final week of the campaign, star Zachary Quinto put out one last video, which pays tribute to the late Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy.

Captain Kirk and Spock are pretty much inseparable in any incarnation of Star Trek. But after two films in the new reboot series, it looks like director Justin Lin is ready to shake things up. Zachary Quinto told the UK newspaper The Telegraph that Spock spends the most time with Karl Urban's Dr. McCoy in Star Trek Beyond, not Chris Pine's Captain Kirk. "Those characters are so diametrically opposed that it’ll be nice to see them interacting." Quinto went into much greater detail about the change in director (J.J. Abrams departed for Star Wars: Episode VII) with MTV . Apparently, Justin Lin brings quiet energy and a clear vision to the set. "Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J., but Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that »
Chiwetel Ejiofor has left us speechless with his performances in 12 Years a Slave, Children of Men, Dirty Pretty Things and Kinky Boots, and now he’s done it yet again in Craig Zobel’s Z for Zachariah.
Based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien, Ejiofor plays a John Loomis, a distraught scientist who struggles to survive in a dystopian future where a radioactive disaster has wiped out most of civilization. One day, he comes across a farmer named Ann Burden (Margot Robbie), who may be the last woman on earth.
She takes him in and they eventually build a strong level of trust between one another. But that bond is tested when they come across another man, Caleb (Chris Pine), who arrives in town and starts gaining Ann’s favor. Soon, the bond between them starts to unravel to the point where things between the trio become increasingly precarious. »
