‘John Wick’ Directing Duo Chad Stahelski and David Leitch Split for ‘John Wick 2’ and ‘The Coldest City’

by Britt Hayes 7 days ago
John Wick’s success is largely owed to the directing power of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, the duo who used their years of experience as stunt coordinators to really amp up the action. The guys have two upcoming action films — John Wick 2 and The Coldest City — but only so much time for both, so Stahelski and Leitch have decided to divide and conquer, with each of them taking on one project instead of two.

‘Dark Places’ Trailer: Charlize Theron Survives a Massacre and Joins the Kill Club

The first U.S. trailer for Dark Places has finally arrived, featuring Charlize Theron in the latest film adaptation of one of best-selling author Gillian Flynn’s novels. Flynn also wrote the novel (and subsequent screenplay) for last year’s Gone Girl, though it doesn’t seem like Dark Places is going to be as big of a hit — the film is currently available on DirecTV almost two months ahead of its theatrical release.

Within hours of Mad Max: Fury Road hitting theaters, Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram exploded with fan art featuring the neon wasteland desert and its high octane inhabitants. One character, though, inspired artists like no other --- Imperator Furiosa, the steely warrior of Immortan Joe's army. ComicsAlliance has compiled a collection of our favorites, including a brand-new piece by the talented Greg Ruth, and an exquisite black and white sketch by Jamie McKelvie.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Feminism Upsets Men’s Rights Activists, and That’s a Good Thing

by Britt Hayes May 13, 2015 @ 1:34 PM
Men’s Rights Activists (aka MRAs) are a quaint, primitive little group, one that preaches insidious ideals about oppressing women and rejecting social justice. Their latest crusade targets Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller’s long-awaited new installment in his beloved Mad Max franchise. It appears that the MRAs have fallen victim to a bait and switch: this film isn’t the explosive action flick they were promised (but it is); instead, it’s a movie with a feminist propaganda.

10 Facts You Might Not Know About ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

It’s been almost 30 years since the last Mad Max movie (Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome) hit theaters in 1985, and almost ever since then director George Miller has been working on a sequel. That sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in the works for over 25 years and started filming over three years ago. In the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, we take a look at Fury Road. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Review: The Ultimate Car Chase Movie

“This is a movie that strains at the leash of the possible, a movie of great visionary wonders.” That lovely sentence concluded Roger Ebert’s 1985 review of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Thirty years later, Mad Max is finally back in a new sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Ebert’s words feel truer than ever. Fury Road is an incredible achievement, one that strains so hard at the leash of the possible that it eventually breaks free and barrels headlong into the realm of insane genius. Forget Max Rockatansky; director George Miller, the guy who co-conceived and shot this gorgeous, glorious lunacy, is the true madman here. And the true hero for having pulled it off.

Looks like Charlize Theron wants to get in on some of that John Wick action. The Mad Max: Fury Road star has lined up another thrilling action project, this time with Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, the directing duo that delivered one of the best action films (if not the best) of 2014 with John Wick. And now they’re teaming up with Theron for a new spy thriller based on the graphic novel The Coldest City.

Charlize Theron Likely Not Returning For Any ‘Mad Max’ Sequels

When Mad Max: Fury Road was announced, it was reportedly the first in a new series of films that would be followed shortly thereafter by Mad Max: Furiosa, a new sequel focused on Charlize Theron’s character. This was before the production fell behind schedule, went way over budget and reports surfaced that Theron and co-star Tom Hardy weren’t even speaking to each other on set. Now, with the benefit of hindsight, Charlize Theron isn't so sure she wants to take another ride on Fury Road.
