Charlize Theron, who is having a pretty nice comeback year after spending a little time on the sidelines, is looking to take a break from the steely antagonists she's recently played in 'Prometheus' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman.' Theron's next movie will have her moving behind the camera for a serious project based on the life of war journalist Marie Colvin, who died earlier this year in Syria. But will she also being portraying the project's title character?
With ratings that soared to upwards of 4.2 million viewers for the season 2 finale of 'Game of Thrones' "Valar Morghulis." it's safe to say that just about everybody wants a piece of 'Game of Thrones' right now. Similarly, 'Snow White and the Huntsman' managed to top the box office this weekend over 'Men and Black 3' and 'The Avengers.' Might we see a bit of a mash-up in the future?
The scenery is gorgeous. Charlize Theron looks great in close-up and her costumes are spectacular. The special effect of turning all those British character actors into dwarfs is impressive. Um. . .did I mention the scenery is gorgeous?
Yeah, I think I've said all the nice things I can think of concerning 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' a would-be epic that is merely lifeless at best and flat-out insipid at worst.
It's been a long, long time coming, but at last cameras are about to roll on 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' the much-delayed fourth film in writer/director George Miller's classic post-apocalyptic series.
