HBO’s loss was Netflix’s gain, or rather re-gain, as former House of Cards director David Fincher previously set his streaming return with Charlize Theron’s Mindhunter. Now, Looking and Glee alum Jonathan Groff has booked the lead role, with Fincher set to direct the pilot.

There are ordinary, everyday ripoffs and there are thefts so bold they’re almost impressive in the degree of their thievery. What I admire about The Huntsman: Winter’s War, the sorta-prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, is that very shamelessness. They basically swapped out Snow White (she’s a baby here; she grew up to be Kristen Stewart in the first movie) for Elsa from Frozen. They’re not even pretending. They just want all the little girls who loved Frozen and are now three years older to come check out this movie.

Fact: Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the best films of 2015, if not of all time. Fact: Charlize Theron is an amazing actress who’s pretty great at playing not-so-nice characters and stone cold badasses. Fact: Fury Road proved that she could be even more badass when you put her behind the wheel, leading us to daydream about seeing Theron in a Fast and Furious movie. So here’s an even better fact: Fast 8 might be making those dreams come true.

The studio behind beautiful stop-motion animated films like ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls is back this year with Kubo and the Two Strings, their most epic and gorgeous endeavor yet. As evidenced by the latest trailer, Laika's latest project is going big — really big — with a sweeping adventure set in a fantasy version of Japan, and a charming voice cast that evokes similar casting in the English-language versions of Studio Ghibli films. But what really makes this trailer sing is the artful use of The Beatles' melancholic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."

Netflix’s Making a Murderer is well on its way to some hearty true crime buzz to rival The Jinx and Serial, so why not its own True Detective as well?

The studio behind ParaNorman, Coraline and The Boxtrolls returns with the beautiful new stop-motion animated project Kubo and the Two Strings, an action-fantasy-adventure that, uh, pulls out all the stops. But seriously, the first trailer for Laika’s latest looks more epic and stunning than anything they’ve attempted before.

20 years later and most people still don’t know what to make of Paul Verhoeven’s trash masterpiece Showgirls, the film in which former Saved by the Bell star Elizabeth Berkley attempted to shed her prudish image but instead made audiences — and studios — weary of her presence According to Verhoeven, the same fate could have befallen Charlize Theron, as the director reveals that Theron auditioned for the lead role in the film but was ultimately passed over for Berkley.

By the end of summer, Mad Max: Fury Road was ranking high on nearly everyone’s Top 10 list, and was even voted the best film of the year by the International Federation of Film Critics. With such praise, Fury Road soon popped up in Oscar discussions, and now Warner Bros. is planning to campaign the film for Best Picture, Best Actress, Actor and Best Supporting Actor. So what does it mean? Does Fury Road actually have a chance this year to not only get nominated, but win in any of those categories?

Charlize Theron’s Awesomeness Inspires Gender-Swap for Action Thriller ‘The Gray Man’

It’s not unheard of for a film to change the gender of its leading role to accommodate an actor. Salt was originally intended as a vehicle for Tom Cruise before they simply changed the protagonist’s name for Angelina Jolie to star, and Sigourney Weaver’s iconic Alien hero Ripley was famously conceived as a man. You can add another cool gender-swap to the list, as Charlize Theron is in talks to join action thriller The Gray Man, playing a role that once attracted Brad Pitt.
