  1. Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel Is Actually a Prequel, Will Focus on the Huntsman and Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen

    Not sure if want.

    We heard last month that Frank Darabont might be directing a Snow White-less follow-up to Snow White and the Huntsman, and lo and behold, Universal just confirmed it. But what's that? It's a prequel? And there'll be more of Charlize Theron's evil queen who, according to most people who saw Snow White, was its best part? I'm listening.

  2. The Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer Is Here, Predictably Dirty/Insane

    Rosie Huntington-Whitely is squishing your head!

    The first trailer for the reboot of George Miller's 1979 Mad Max is here, and damn. Water wars, body horror, Theron's Furiosa riding through the night like a dirty desert queen...I don't know exactly what's going on, but it's captivating. Hopefully the actual film will live up to some of this footage, although Theron's shaved head has probably set an unfair precedent. Good luck topping that, Warner Bros.

  6. Just In Time for Doctor Who Day: The Mary Sue Interviews Matt Smith!

    Interview

    He's the Doctor. He's cool. And yes, we got the opportunity to speak with him recently at the New York premiere of BBC's Doctor Who Season 7 along with Karen Gillan and new Executive Producer Caroline Skinner. Matt Smith is a delight to speak with, he's got lots of energy and is constantly thrilled at questions he's probably been asked hundreds of times. So, are you curious what we asked the actor and...wait a minute, did he just tell us what was going to happen to the Ponds??

  7. Amanda Reviews Prometheus and Snow White and the Huntsman

    Review

    Editor’s note: we asked contributing writer Amanda LaPergola to write up a review on either Snow White and the Huntsman or Prometheus. We told her it did not matter which movie she chose, just as long as she got in a review within a few days of the movie’s opening. Clearly, we never learn our lesson.

  8. Gods, Monsters, and Viewer Expectations Battle in Prometheus

    Essay

    As director or audience member, it's difficult to approach a property with as much expectation built around it as the Alien series. In the 33 years since the first Alien film came out, both it and its sequels (of debatable quality) have spawned a library's worth of critical analysis and design homages. Not to mention, it's generated a lot of fan attachment. I am hardly exempt from this baggage train, considering that the original 1979 Alien is not only one of my favorite sci-fi movies, but one of my favorite movies, period. As you might have guessed, this doesn't mean I'm unwilling to call a spade a spade. Or, as is more apt in this case; a near-xenomorphic-mess is still a near-xenomorphic-mess. Unlike his Robin Hood-turned-Republican-allegory, Ridley Scott's Prometheus is by contrast daringly liberal, atheistic, and, dare I say it, pro-choice. This modern vehicle is an existential space horror flick packed with body horror, dazzling imagination, and little rational sense. Like the molecular structure of the self-sacrificing Space Jockey that kicks off the puzzling proceedings, the longer you watch Prometheus, the more it comes apart. It should go without saying, but this entire discussion is rife with spoilers, start to finish. It's a "discussion," rather than a "review," because I figure if you care about spoilers you won't read this until you've seen it. Even so, you've been warned, and in bold and italics, no less.

  9. Snow White and the Huntsman: Mediocrity is Equal Opportunity [Review]

    Review

    What is Snow White and the Huntsman? It's a pretty mediocre story about a hero who is more destined for the role than qualified, has a mythic journey, rallies an army with a single speech, and takes a castle back from an evil queen. But it's no more mediocre than many films bearing that description, regardless of whether the hero is a young woman or a young man.

  10. Charlize Theron Talks Joining Game Of Thrones & Mad Max In The Most Awesome Way Possible

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    I've long enjoyed Charlize Theron as an actor but I had no idea she was a legitimately cool person in real life until now. She's been on a promotional whirlwind lately thanks to two new films, Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus, and has been quoted saying some very interesting things. Hit the jump for what she has to say about another upcoming film, Mad Max: Fury Road, and the possibility of joining HBO's Game of Thrones
