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?

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.

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.

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.
