Charlize Theron Has a Fuller Figure for New Film Role as Mother of Three

3 hours ago | | See recent news »

Charlize Theron is known for her slim frame on the red carpet, but the actress has a curvier figure on the set of her new film. In photos taken during a shoot of Tully in Vancouver, the blonde beauty appears to have gained weight for her role as Marlo, a mother of three including a newborn. Instead of a glamorous fitted gown, her apparel consists of baggy jeans, a T-shirt and a plaid flannel. It's not clear if Theron, 41, is wearing a bodysuit for some extra padding or if she's gained the weight for the Jason Reitman-directed flick, although »

"Wonder Woman" - Enter Gal Gadot

3 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take a look @ more footage and images of actress Gal Gadot as 'Diana of Themyscira', in the upcoming live-action 'Wonder Woman' solo feature from "Monster" director Patty Jenkins:

The original 'Wonder Woman' was created by William Moulton Marston, (aka 'Charles Moulton')...

...who saw the educational potential of comic books...

...and in 1941 was hired as a consultant for "National Periodicals/All-Winner Comics" (DC Comics). 

He created his female superhero, in a field dominated by male characters, inspired by his mistress Olive Byrne, who lived with him and his wife in a 'polygamous, polyamorous' relationship.

Having 2 children with both women, Marston said that his women served as independent exemplars for Ww, whose comic book adventures would be illustrated by 'Harry Peter'.

"Wonder Woman is psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should, I believe, rule the world," Marston said, defending his character's look. »

Charlize Theron Captivates in ’93 Martini Commercial

23 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Before “Mad Max: Fury Road,” before her Oscar-winning turn in “Monster”—even before “The Cider House Rules,” Charlize Theron was a working actor like any other. Born in South Africa, she modeled in Italy, studied ballet in New York City, and after a knee injury shut down her dancing career, moved to Los Angeles to get into TV and film. It was around that time that Theron appeared as a European bombshell in the martini commercial below, exhibiting a sultry charisma that surely foretold her later success. Read: “How to Nail Every Shot in a Commercial Shoot” With artfully swept blonde hair and a little black dress that ends up stealing the show, Theron captivates even in a simple 60-second spot. The actor’s later roles rarely demanded this level of glamour and magnetic sexiness, but it’s clear—as with all of her subsequent screen performances—she can fit the part. »

Lights, Camera, Murder: Check Out the Most Notorious Criminals of All Time Portrayed in Cinema

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Lights, camera, murder.  Serial killers, ruthless mobsters and sneaky con artists alike have long fascinated the general public, so it's no wonder some of Hollywood's most iconic films have drawn inspiration from the twisted minds of history-making criminals.  From Charlize Theron's bone-chilling performance of since-executed murderer Aileen Wuornos in Monster, to Johnny Depp's portrayal of notorious organized crime leader Whitey Bulger in Black Mass, movie buffs just can't get enough true crime on the big screen.  Click through the gallery below to relive our favorite actors' gripping transformations into »

Wonder Woman: Has The Villain For The DC Epic Finally Been Revealed?

20 September 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's funny. People always talk about the importance of great villains in genre films, and how certain movies fall completely flat because of their seemingly toothless antagonists. Yet, sometimes, villains are treated as an afterthought by fans and marketers in the lead-up to a film's release. When it comes to DC's Wonder Woman, so much focus has been placed on the casting of Gal Gadot, the hiring of Patty Jenkins (Monster), the period timeframe of the plot, and how it will fit into the grander landscape that leads us to Justice League...that practically no one is thinking about the film's big bad villain.

Similar to Suicide Squad, WB/DC seems to be placing the bulk of the focus on the protagonist(s) of the movie and hardly making mention of the villain. For the David Ayer flick, people didn't really know for sure who the villain(s) would be »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ‘The Iron Giant,’ ‘Love & Friendship,’ ‘A Bigger Splash,’ and More

6 September 2016 6:51 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds. Based on the 1969 French drama La piscine (The Swimming Pool »

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten White People Doing The Right Thing

30 August 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I think everyone in this country should be aware by now that our race relations are at an all time low.  It seems every time we hear the news another black citizen has been shot by the police or police have been shot by someone angry about these shootings.  It cannot continue.  We as a nation cannot keep going down this road.

I have always sympathized with Black Americans.  In fact as a Scot and Irish American I have always sympathized with anyone who ever got pushed around, starting with Native Americans, Asians, Jewish immigrants, women of any ethnic group, Hispanics from any country.

I also sympathize with the people who are tasked with law enforcement.  It’s a tough job.  I had some training in that area.  A couple of years ago I was hired by a Security company and was trained in unarmed, and armed, uniformed security.   I »

The Ice Queen Rises in Huntsman: Winter's War Blu-ray Preview | Exclusive

22 August 2016 3:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the success of 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, which took in $155.3 million domestically and $396.5 million from a $160 million budget, Universal Pictures decided to go in another direction for its follow-up. Instead of telling a sequel, the studio decided to go back before Snow White's story with the prequel The Huntsman: Winter's War. While fans get ready for the Blu-ray and DVD release tomorrow, we have an exclusive preview that introduces Emily Blunt's character, Freya.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment provided us with this preview, which features Emily Blunt revealing more about her character, the Ice Queen. The actress teases that villains rarely have much back story, but she was quite pleased that there was such a rich origin for Freya. We also hear from her on-screen sister, Charlize Theron, who reveals how Freya goes on a journey to discover her power, while director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan describes Freya as the "beta" to Ravenna's alpha. »

Pete's Dragon and Our Top 5 Monster Pets On FilmPete's Dragon and Our Top 5 Monster Pets On FilmJenny Bullough8/10/2016 12:31:00 Pm

Have you ever dreamed of having your own monster pet? A giant creature fiercely loyal only to you, with the power to face down bullies and maybe even fly you to school and back every day? Everyone’s had this fantasy as a kid, and with Pete’s Dragon opening in theatres this weekend, we’ve been thinking about other movies that explore the special bond between a child and a fantastical pet or creature.

Here are some of our favourites:

The Water Horse

Set in Scotland during WWII, when Angus, a young Scottish boy, finds an enchanted egg on the shores of Loch Ness, he takes it home and soon finds himself face-to-face with an amazing creature: the mythical "water horse" of Scottish lore. But as “Crusoe” begins to grow bigger and bigger, »

‘Suicide Squad’ Is a Hit, But DC Needs to Start Making Better Movies

7 August 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s an old adage that applies to the dilemma DC Comics currently faces. You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

In the case of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and now “Suicide Squad,” it can be argued that DC and Warner Bros. have pretty skillfully pulled the wool over the eyes of a lot of people. “Batman v Superman’s” marketing material promised a clash of comic-book leviathans, despite the fact that the titular standoff comprises very little screen time in what is essentially a very long throat clearing for Justice League movies to come.

In the case of “Suicide Squad,” Day-Glo posters and pop music-infused trailers touted a wry, fun-filled and thrillingly amoral romp, similar to the fourth-wall breaking hit “Deadpool.” What audiences got instead was a down-beat, »

Charlize Theron might be one of the more low-key celebrities in Hollywood when it comes to her personal life, but her work is anything but.

Charlize turns the big 4-0 today, and we’re celebrating with a list of her top movies. She’s been in a lot of films over the years, with as diverse a body of work as any of the best actors in history. Her performance in last year’s Mad Max: Fury Road was a tour de force that completely blew us out of the water, and we can’t wait to see her hop into a high-powered vehicle again in next year's Fast 8.

Wonder Woman Extended TV Spot Reveals New Footage

1 August 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Warner Bros. released the Comic-Con trailer for Wonder Woman, which was well-received by fans. Since we still have roughly 10 months until this movie hits theaters, most weren't expecting a new TV spot already, but one surfaced this weekend, which is essentially a shorter version of the Sdcc trailer. Still, we don't know when more footage will be unveiled, so this TV spot will help tide fans over until a new trailer drops.

This TV spot surfaced on YouTube, debuting just over a week after Warner Bros.' Comic-Con panel. The panel was hosted by Conan O'Brien, featuring director Patty Jenkins, who then introduced Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor) and Diana Prince herself, Gal Gadot, who expressed how it is an "honor and a privilege" to bring this iconic character Diana Prince to life on the big screen, and how she feels a huge responsibility to portray this character accurately. »

Wonder Woman TV Spot Recuts Comic-Con Footage

31 July 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comic-Con attendees were the first to see footage from Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC venture Wonder Woman, which holds the lofty distinction of being the first modern superhero blockbuster to be toplined by a female protagonist, but that initial preview has long since been released online. And now, WB is going a step further by recutting the video for a strangely early extended TV spot (remember, the pic’s not out until next year).

What the clip lacks in fresh material it makes up for in momentum and slick execution – seeing the TV spot drives home what an effective first look the studio gave this movie, from the killer action money-shots to some entertaining banter between Amazonian princess Diana Prince and her love interest, downed pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). There’s a lot riding on Wonder Woman, both as an introduction to a key player in the DC sandbox and »

The Amazonian Princess Goes To War In The First Badass TV Spot For Wonder Woman

30 July 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The first extended TV spot for Warner Bros.' next DC adventure Wonder Woman has arrived online and while, it doesn't feature much, if any, new footage, it does offer up a pretty sweet remix of footage from the recently released Comic-Con trailer. The film was helmed by Patty Jenkins (Monster) and stars Gal Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek Beyond), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Robin Wright (Blade Runner 2), and Lucy Davis (The Office). Check it out below: Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers. »

Watch the Full Wonder Woman Panel from Comic-Con

25 July 2016 5:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice turned out to be much more divisive than Warner Bros. would have liked, even most of the critics and fans who didn't enjoy the movie had nothing but high praise for Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Next summer, fans will learn even more about this iconic character when the stand alone movie hits theaters on June 2, 2017. As expected, Warner Bros. brought director Patty Jenkins and some of her cast members to Comic-Con for the studio's Hall H panel on Saturday, where the very first trailer was unveiled. Today, the studio has also revealed the full panel video, where the director and her stars offer new details about the movie.

Host Conan O'Brien brought out director Patty Jenkins, who then introduced Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor) and Diana Prince herself, Gal Gadot. After the trailer was shown to »
