'Atomic Blonde' has great fights, Charlize Theron had to...dress the part? She tells Yahoo Movies action scenes in sexy clothes is 'a different reality'
David Leitch has developed a reputation for his masterful orchestration of practical stunts and fight scenes — first as a stuntman, then as a stunt coordinator, and now as the shot caller behind the new Charlize Theron spy thriller, Atomic Blonde. If you’ve ever wondered how filmmakers like Leitch choreograph high-speed car chases, the director lets us in on a few secrets in our new installment of Instant Commentary (watch it above). Leitch narrates one of the film’s most pulsating sequences, which finds MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) speeding through the streets of Berlin while baddies hunt her and the man she’s protecting (Spyglass, played by Eddie Marsan).
Charlize Theron is a fighter and a lover as butt-kicking MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton in the gritty upcoming actioner Atomic Blonde. “I was really nervous at first, but [Charlize] made it so easy for me,” Boutella told Yahoo Movies at Cinemacon in Las Vegas (watch above). The pairing with Boutella is not Theron’s first onscreen relationship with another woman.
It took a few tries to get up and running — it’s all part of the fun and unpredictability of transmitting live — but we took to Facebook Live today for a sit-down with the voice stars of Kubo and the Two Strings, Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey (watch above). The film comes to us from the stop-motion animation maestros at Laika, the studio behind Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls. It was the pedigree of those films, particularly Coraline, that lured these two Oscar winners to lend their voices.
Hollywood’s best and brightest pull out all the stops and don’t shy away from dramatic silhouettes, fresh-off-the-runway couture looks or eye-catching accessories. According to new data released by Google, the Academy Awards are the most searched entertainment awards show in Canada, and leading up to this year’s spectacle, Canada is the no. 3 country when it comes to searching for red carpet looks.
When the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War came out three months ago, it was hard to know who audiences were supposed to root for in this Kristen Stewart-less prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Did the preening, power-hungry Ravenna really kill Freya’s baby?
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’.
The sequel to the 2012 hit Snow White and the Huntsman (which made nearly $400 million worldwide), the new film returns the titular Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna, the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron). Snow White is noticeably absent this time around, likely thanks to Kristen Stewart’s affair with director Rupert Sanders during the first film’s production. Instead, Jessica Chastain, who plays a bad-ass named Sara, is playing the female warrior role in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s directorial debut. Also new for this go-round: Emily Blunt, who plays Freya, the Evil Queen’s heartbroken sister, who has the power of freezing things.
Faced with the prospect of receiving dirtification in the makeup chair every morning, Charlize Theron (who plays the rebellious Furiosa) chose another route: She rolled around on the ground.
