Director David Leitch says the studio pleaded with him to cut back the iconic 'Atomic Blonde' stairwell fight because it was too violent.
From “Children of Men” to the opening scene of “La La Land,” so-called oners are all the rage these days, as directors design scenes (or entire movies, a la “Birdman”) to look as if they were filmed in one continuous take. But surely none has been more complicated than the nearly 10-minute, “single-shot” action scene in... Read more »
In this week’s cover story, Charlize Theron tells Variety she hopes that her new action thriller “Atomic Blonde” spawns a multi-film franchise. But she’s also eager to trek back through the desert as the one-armed Imperator Furiosa in a prequel to “Max Mad: Fury Road.” “I’d love to,” Theron tells Variety. “There were three scripts.

Get your first look at the "Chemistry" featurette, one of the extras from the upcoming home video edition of 'The Fate of the Furious,' released on July 11
Zoe Kravitz candidly admits the leads of George Miller's acclaimed 'Mad Max' sequel "didn't get along."
Not too long ago we saw Charlize Theron battle alongside Tom Hardy in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ and next month we’ll see her lead Vin Diesel to the dark side in ‘Fast & Furious 8’ – but it’s been some time since she’s headlined an ass-kicking action epic of her own. An adaptation of 2012 graphic novel ‘The Coldest City,’ this high-octane spy movie casts the ‘Monster’ Oscar-winner as MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton, who – as Toby Jones tells us in the trailer (not that it isn’t already self-apparent) – is quite the expert in hand-to-hand combat.
Whatever way you look at it, the 2017 Oscars has fast become the most bizarre ceremony in the Academy’s 89-year history. Everyone has already heard about Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway reading out ‘La La Land’, and not ‘Moonlight’, as the Best Picture winner, while Jimmy Kimmel also unknowingly invited a man that had just been released from prison to mix it with the Hollywood glitterati.

The eighth episode in the fuel-injected blockbuster franchise ‘The Fast and the Furious’ is just over four months away – and now we have our first brief glimpse of the action. The troubled seventh film in the series managed to rise from the tragedy of star Paul Walker’s untimely death to become the biggest ‘Fast &Furious’ by far, grossing $1.516 billion worldwide (making it the sixth highest grossing film of all time at present). Naturally this very brief glimpse of the eighth film doesn’t give us any huge insights plot-wise, but we do get brief glimpses of most of the key stars – Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and the new villain of the piece Charlize Theron.
Here’s a bit of a casting curveball… Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron is reportedly circling the role of the villain in ‘Fast & Furious 8’.
