Plans for a fourth Max Max film have long been in the works but the project spent years in development hell. Eventually, Mel Gibson lost interest and walked away forever. Three decades later, a new installment is finally here. Substitute Tom Hardy for Gibson and Namibia as the new backdrop instead of New South Wales and we have Mad Max: Fury Road.
An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max (Tom Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
Joining Hardy and a bald Theron are Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. George Miller who’s directed all the previous Mad Max films returns to the post-apocalyptic franchise.
Mad Max: Fury Road rides into theaters on May 15, 2015. If the action-packed footage doesn’t lure you to watch it opening weekend, rumors have it that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to debut before the film. How’s that for an incentive.
Did you love Gone Girl? If so, definitely check this out.
From the author who gave us that thriller, comes another movie adaptation based on one of Gillian Flynn’s books. Dark Places stars Charlize Theron as a woman who survived a brutal killing of her family when she was a child. She revisits those horrendous events when she is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club who want to uncover the truth about what happened.
A still of Dark Places was actually released long before we got out first look at Gone Girl. Not sure the reason for the release delay. In fact, it still has no US date and only scheduled to premiere in Paris on March 30. Is it that bad?
The film boasts a stellar cast including Nicholas Hoult, Chloe Grace Moretz, Corey Stoll, Christina Hendricks and Tye Sheridan. Check out the trailer below.
Bryan Singer has kept fans updated with the film’s progess by tweeting photos from on set. With X-Men Days of Future Past filming in Montreal wrapped up, the director decided to treat fans with an actual promotional image.
It features Nicholas Hoult in human form as The Beast, James McAvoy wheeling around as Professor X and Hugh Jackman being his beefy self wearing distinctively 70s-era clothing while hanging out in a really shiny hallway. Groovy, don’t you think? I can’t wait for the sequel to hit theaters. How about you? Sound off below.
British actor Nicholas Hoult appears in the latest issue of Flaunt Magazine. After checking out his editorial in the publication’s Fabrication Issue, it’s easy to see how Jennifer Lawrence fell for him. His blue eyes are intoxicating. She’ll definitely have to restrain herself as the two reunite to film X-Men: Days of Future Past in Montreal.
Photographer Thomas Giddings snapped the 23-year-old for a beautiful fashion spread. In the accompanying interview, Hoult discusses his work in Warm Bodies and Jack and the Giant Slayer, and his role in the upcoming X-Men sequel. He also defines honesty, shares his thoughts on family and talks dropping trou’ at the photo shoot. Check out the photos below. For more Nicholas Hoult, head over to Flaunt magazine.
The first four minutes of an upcoming movie called Warm Bodies has been released and it’s definitely worth checking out! The film stars Nicholas Hoult, whom we first got to know in About A Boy, and later in A Single Man. He’s also the star of Jack The Giant Slayer and will also be reprising his role as Hank McCoy / Beast in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
In Warm Bodies, Hoult stars as R, a zombie who becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims. Their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world. The first four minutes sets the scene for the film and gives you a good feel for what to expect. I wasn’t expecting to like it, but I was pleasantly surprised.
In addition to Hoult, the film also stars Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco and Cory Hardrict. Check out the first four minutes of the film below!
It’s been almost a year since the first teaser trailer for Jack The Giant Slayer (which used to be called Jack the Giant Killer) first debuted. Now the first full trailer has been revealed and it looks like it’s going to be “Fee-fi-fo-fun!” That was cheesy, but you catch my drift.
The premise of the story that an ancient war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway (via a magic beanstalk) between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Now that the giants are unleashed onto Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants aim to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing Jack into the battle of his life to stop them. He fights for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess. He comes face to face with creatures he previously only knew as legends, but in the process, he becomes a legend himself.
The Bryan Singer-directed film has Nicholas Hoult in the role of Jack, and also stars Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci. The film comes out on March 1, 2013 (my birthday!) In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
There have been so many fairy tales coming to life in both television and movies that it comes as no surprise that we’ll be adding another to the list in 2012. Bryan Singer (X-Men) is directing ‘Jack and the Giant Killer,’ the modern telling of a the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and the accompanying terrifying giants he encounters. The storyline reads, “A long-standing peace between men and giants is threatened, as a young farmer leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom in hopes of rescuing a kidnapped princess”
When I first saw the title, I thought to myself, “Oh yeah! I forgot about Jack and the Beanstalk!” I loved this story as a kid and feel that this is actually the perfect story to have turn into a movie. The film stars the handsome Nicholas Hoult as Jack, along with co-stars Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGreggor.
Get your first look at the trailer below. This movie could be epic! The film hits theatres in June 2012.
In spite of much controversy revolving buzz words like “child pornography”, “drug propaganda” and “offensive expletives”, SKINS has finally made its way across the pond and into MTV’s anticipatory lap… much to my chagrin. “Skins” is based in the UK and has made its way through four amazingly successful seasons on Channel 4, tracking the lives of a close-knit group of friends in their mid-to-later teens who barely attend class, take every drug under the sun and truly corporealize the concept of “screwing like bunnies”. Basically, living their Id’s (note: I’m talking Freud, not driving permit here) to the fullest and skirting society at every step, these kids draw you in and make you care about every misstep and tragedy that befalls em’. Without harping on the amazingness of this original series too much as it’s been 3 years since it’s been out and there’s plenty of praise out there for it, what I will tell you about is how the American version of this show rates in comparison after having seen their first and second episodes these past two weeks.
Long story short, “Skins” (US) will never, ever be what “Skins” (UK) was and is. Thus far the opening to American episodes have mirrored how the Brits began- just like was done with past exports like “The Office”- thus making it perfect for a comparison. Though the US decided to turn the lispy blond gay character into a snappy, sultry lesbian as they adapt the show, the rest of the first episode is a dead parallel, though likely as things progress it will diverge more and more… likely in sad accordance with whatever focus groups tells MTV they want to see more and less of. Basically, the US version is severely lacking in so many damn ways, that said, I’m gonna focus on the big three as I see it- I being the self-proclaimed “Skins” expert of Homorazzi ;)
