Has Wonder Woman opened the floodgates for female action heroes?

7 August 2017 1:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The release of Charlize Theron spy movie Atomic Blonde is the first test of whether we are heading into a new era of kick-ass equality

If Jean-Luc Godard really meant it when he said “All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun”, how come he never made a movie with just a girl and a gun? Vivre Sa Vie might just about scrape through, but Godard basically took it as read that there would be a guy in the mix.

Hollywood, on the other hand, has started to take Godard’s maxim literally. We have had countless “girl and gun” movies recently, and virtually none have stuck. It’s as though the studios looked at Bourne, Bond, John Wick and all the other franchised-up action heroes and all had the same bright idea: “Make the hero a woman!” Often that becomes a woman wearing next to nothing, »

‘Atomic Blonde’ Review: Charlize Theron Kicks Ass, But Spy Action Thriller Has More Fight Than Bite

25 July 2017 3:32 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Move over Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson, there’s a new kickass woman ready to deliver a knockout punch to any man in her way. In the spirit of female action-driven movies like Lucy, Wanted, Salt and La Femme Nikita comes Atomic Blonde. Of course Charlize Theron, recently in Mad Max and to a much lesser extent in The Fate Of The Furious, has displayed a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners attitude in proving she can serve up this kind of entertainment as well as any… »

Coming Distractions: Noomi Rapace does the badass CIA agent thing in the Unlocked trailer

24 July 2017 3:26 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

She’s fought aliens, abusers, and Rachel McAdams, but at long last, Noomi Rapace finally gets to shoot some guns while looking cool. (In a movie, anyway; maybe she does that all the time in real life.) Unlocked, the new action thriller with a deeply generic title, gives Rapace the chance to do a bunch of badass stuff that one would usually find in an Angelina Jolie vehicle. The actor stars as a disgraced CIA agent who gets called back into service to help figure the details of a suspected imminent attack in London. Unfortunately, while interrogating a suspect, she suddenly realizes the entire situation is a setup, and the CIA’s security has been compromised. Soon, she’s dodging bullets, tracking down the real bad guys, and somehow working with Orlando Bloom’s fellow ass-kicker.

It all looks like silly good fun in a Salt kind of way, with »

‘Proud Mary’ Trailer: Taraji P. Henson Is the Ass-Kicking Action Star Hollywood Needs Right Now

20 July 2017 8:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Action movies are not usually star vehicles for Hollywood actresses. Charlize Theron in “Atomic Blonde,” Angelina Jolie in “Salt” and Scarlett Johansson in “Lucy” are anomalies when they should be the standard, but Hollywood is slowly coming around to this fact. Case in point: “Proud Mary.” Never in a million years would the old Hollywood guard let the amazing Taraji P. Henson lead an action vehicle as a butt-kicking assassin, but it’s 2017 and we’re more than ready for this.

Proud Mary” stars Henson as the titular character, a ruthless professional hit-woman for the Boston mob who breaks good after she meets a young boy who awakens her maternal instinct in her that she never knew she had.

Angelina Jolie Brings Her Kids to Dinner with Dad Jon Voight

13 May 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Angelina Jolie is keeping her family close — and that includes having dinner with her formerly estranged father Jon Voight.

On Wednesday, the two were spotted together at a sushi restaurant in Beverly Hills, along with four of her children with Brad Pitt: Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, according to E! News.

“The kids had gifts for their granddad. Angie hugged her dad. They were all very happy,” a source tells People. “They sat at a table inside for about two hours.”

Unlocked review

25 April 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Noomi Rapace stars in Unlocked, a new spy thriller from director Michael Apted. A new franchise in the offing? Ryan takes a look...

Are filmmakers having trouble titling their spy thrillers? Think about the names of classic examples of the genre: The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. The Ipcress File. Three Days Of The Condor. The Day Of The Jackal. Cool. Evocative. Enticing.

See related  The Handmaid's Tale episodes 1-3 spoiler-free review The Handmaid's Tale: watch the first full-length trailer

Now consider the following: Salt. Spectre. The Double. Unlocked. Don’t exactly get the pulse racing, do they?

Still, there’s plenty of tension and paranoia to go around in Unlocked, even if its name slips from the mind as soon as you’ve looked at the poster. Noomi Rapace stars as Alice Racine, a former CIA interrogator who’s reluctant to return to the fold after »

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today

4 April 2017 4:12 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Way back in 1979, Ridley Scott’s “Alien” brought us our first genuine female action hero in Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Despite the three sequels that followed, Ripley proved to be something of an outlier. Until fairly recently, a woman could kill someone in a movie only if she faced brutal punishment afterward, as in Scott’s “Thelma and Louise,” or in the inevitable fates of Bond girls: They could dole out lethal action, but rarely survived.

Today, ass-kicking women are no longer an anomaly or subject to automatic retribution. This weekend, we watched Scarlett Johansson lay waste to her enemies (although not the box office) in “Ghost in the Shell,” following a path blazed by the likes of Linda Hamilton (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Uma Thurman (“Kill Bill”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). These roles may strike a blow for equality and diversity, but what these women — and »

New August 2018 Release Date for Massive Shark Movie Meg

2 March 2017 6:38 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It's capable of bringing down a T-Rex in prehistoric times, so just imagine the meal it could have with a modern-day menu. The massive Megalodon shark from Steve Alten's 1997 novel, Meg, will finally come to life on film via Warner Bros., but viewers now have a bit longer of a wait to see the ultimate apex predator make its splash on the big screen.

Multiple sources, including Variety, report that Meg will now be released in theaters (in 3D and IMAX) on August 10th, 2018, moving it several months from its previous March 2nd slot.

Directed by Jon Turteltaub (Last Vegas, National Treasure) and featuring a cast that includes Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, and Ruby Rose, filming on Meg began last October in New Zealand, with shooting on the project also being done in China.

Angelina Jolie Weighing Multiple Projects, Including Maleficent 2

23 February 2017 8:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Angelina Jolie is in the midst of formulating her return to the movie scene following recent personal troubles.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the actress-producer-director is mulling over multiple projects, including the long-rumored Maleficent 2. Last we checked in on the fantastical sequel, screenwriter Linda Woolverton merely confirmed its existence – “this very minute, it’s blinking at my computer.” That was almost nine months ago, and though THR alludes to the Maleficent follow-up during its exhaustive interview, there’s no mention of a tangible update.

Beyond the realm of dark fantasy and vengeful fairies, Jolie is reportedly eyeing not one, but two large-scale Universal projects. The first is an adaptation of Simon Sebag Montefiore’s Catherine the Great and Potemkin: The Imperial Love Affair, which chronicles the fiery love affair between the eponymous Russian ruler and Prince Grigory Potemkin. There’s also mention of an espionage thriller based on »

Maleficent 2 to Be Angelina Jolie's Next Movie?

22 February 2017 12:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Angelina Jolie was at one point, not that long ago, one of the most sought-after and highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. On Disney's Maleficent, she was able to command a massive $20 million payday as well as some backend, which is no small feat. She has since turned her attention toward smaller projects and directing, but it looks like her next big role could be a return as the iconic Disney villain in Maleficent 2.

The Hollywood Reporter recently ran a pretty in-depth feature on Angelina Jolie and where her career is headed. According to the report, she currently has a few acting projects in the works after spending a few years mostly behind the camera. Her only acting gigs of late were in By The Sea and Kung Fu Panda 3. Per THR, she is now looking to get back in the game with a pair of large-scale projects currently in development at Universal, »

Angelina Jolie developing Catherine The Great, Bride Of Frankenstein still possible

22 February 2017 11:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Feb 23, 2017

Angelina Jolie is developing two films at Universal, including a Catherine The Great movie. Bride Of Frankenstein could still happen too.

Angelina Jolie arguably remains one of the most bankable movie stars in Hollywood. Granted, the last time she appeared in a live-action film was for 2015’s underperformer, By the Sea. But prior to that misfire, the combination of her marquee name and Disney nostalgia propelled Maleficent to a $759 million gross during the summer of 2014. And along with a purported Maleficent 2, many producers have sought the star to reprise roles in potential blockbusters like a now dormant Wanted 2 and the abandoned Salt 2.

However, personal life aside, she has kept a low profile in Hollywood, electing instead to direct a movie set and produced in Cambodia (Netflix has since purchased the international rights). Apparently things are changing at Universal Pictures, however, since THR is reporting she has »

Oscars: With 38 Combined Noms, Former Partners Square Off for the First Time

16 February 2017 8:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For more than a decade, sound mixers Kevin O’Connell and Greg P. Russell worked hand-in-hand on some of the industry’s biggest box office hits, movies like “The Rock,” “Armageddon,” “Spider-Man,” and “Transformers.” It was a relationship born out of an early coupling on Ridley Scott’s “Black Rain” that later took flight in the mid-1990s when the two set up shop together at the Cary Grant mixing stage on the Sony lot in Culver City. In their time together, they landed Academy recognition 12 times, quickly becoming the Susan Luccis of the Oscars — consistently nominated, but never awarded.

Ten years ago, after the first “Transformers” film, O’Connell and Russell went their separate ways. This year, they’re back at the big dance together, though for different projects: O’Connell picked up his 21st nomination to date for Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” while Russell is back in »
