Director David Leitch said he’d “really wanted to try some provocative things with action,” as Deadline reports, and he seems to have gotten his wish. In fact, she’s still dealing with the physical effects. Eesh.The silver lining, perhaps, is that from what we’ve seen in the trailer, the actress throws a mean-looking punch. She shared that she has more surgery to go. Theron recently revealed during a SXSW Q&A session that her teeth are “in bad shape” because she cracked two of them.The injury came during her extensive training for the role, a months-long process that involved a team of eight trainers, hours of gym time, and even sparring with Keanu Reeves, who was training for “John Wick: Chapter 2.” Unfortunately, though, that didn’t save her from injury.”When I trained, I cracked two teeth in the back of my mouth, clenching while fighting, because apparently my arm strength wasn’t strong enough,” she said, according to Variety.Theron had to undergo oral surgery at the time, but that still wasn’t enough. If only it hadn’t been at the expense of Theron’s teeth…”Atomic Blonde” opens in theaters on July 28.[via: Variety; Deadline] Posted March 13, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongNever let it be said that Charlize Theron won’t suffer for her craft.The “Atomic Blonde” star put up with more than a little pain while pulling off the stunts needed for the upcoming spy action thriller.

Posted March 13, 2017 by Kelly WooWhat if “Breaking Bad” was a movie?That’s the question two fans, filmmakers Lucas Stoll and Gaylor Morestin, decided to answer by editing down the entire series into one two-hour movie.

Harington plays Samuel, a wounded cowboy running from trouble, who receives shelter from the 14-year-old Liz (Emilia Jones) and leaves a lasting mark on the girl as her life descends into horror.Once again, Harington treads into territory that unflinchingly explores violence, brutality, and their aftereffects, much like the HBO fantasy series he’s best known for. Obviously, he’s a thief and he’s in with a bad crowd, and yet he finds his own redemption through helping this young woman. I’m lucky in that I get options and offers. There could be people who would help her, who could help her. I had very little time. It was so interesting. You’re not quite sure where he is. It went to Robert Pattinson. It’s always on when you read a script — is there something that grabs you?I read so many scripts that I love and I think are brilliant, but I just know I can’t do the character. After wrapping filming on the upcoming seventh season, he admits that he’s still marveling on how the show has moved forward so strongly, without a new volume in the epic A Song of Ice and Fire” series to shape it.Moviefone: “Brimstone” is quite an amazing piece of filmmaking, and I imagine it was a very easy “yes” for you to get involved. Posted March 13, 2017 by Scott HuverReady to see Kit Harington play a different kind of unlikely hero? The film slowly, over the course of four in-film “chapters,” unveils the grim circumstances in which a young, mute frontier midwife and mother (Dakota Fanning) finds herself the target of an obsessed and unrelenting fire-and-brimstone preacher (Guy Pearce). He’s dear to me. I know the character -– even if it’s not for me, they think it is. Then, as sometimes happens, the role went to someone else. It’s really exciting to me not knowing, genuinely having no idea where it’s going to end, what they’ve got in their heads, and being the first to find out. Next season will be next season, he might go through a big change, I don’t know. Obviously, the schedule realities are important, but are there kinds of roles, or types of genres, that you’re especially looking for?I’m so greedy in that way! But what were the specific motivators for you? Then whatever happened happened, and I came aboard very late.I think first and foremost, I really wanted this role from the get-go because the script was so strong. Martin book already laying down a road map, and knowing where you left it.It’s just amazing, in some ways, having no book to go on, because the scripts come through and you’re completely in the dark about what they’re going to do. He’s written it, and he knows it so well, and he knows very much what he wants to do. Believe me, I just finished Season Seven, and I am already counting down the days until I get the Season Eight scripts.Everyone’s been wondering how it’s going to end, and what’s going to happen right from the get-go, and theorizing about it. It wasn’t really specific to any kind of genre.It takes a pretty unflinching look at violence and its consequences, and also very dark elements of sexuality, and both are things that you’re also familiar with from “Game of Thrones.” Why are these things, do you feel, important to explore artistically for you right now?I think I’ve always been an advocate of going to really disturbing places in the dramas that we see, and to places of real violence. I think that was interesting playing a memory in some ways, like coming in to play a memory of the lead character.This marks a major arrival of a filmmaker in Martin Koolhoven, working for the first time in an English language film. He’s one of those directors who knows his piece fully. I think I’ve come into a place of felling quite emotional about him, actually, knowing that I’m not going to get to go back to him after next year.I’m really trying to just take stock of having lived this sort of dual life with this character, and being through so much with this character. It was so surreal. Tell me about your experiences working with him. I had to, like, get on a flight the next day and just do this part -– which, usually, you’ve got a couple of months maybe — at least — to kind of get your head into a role. Only this time, there are no dragons, dire wolves, or White Walkers in sight.The “Game of Thrones” star has a key role in “Brimstone,” the bleak, violent and uncompromising Western from Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven. What were the things you saw in the character and in the story that really got you excited creatively?Kit Harington: I’ll be honest: I read the script a while before I joined it. So I would look at something away from that, but other than that, it’s always on the scripts and the filmmaker. I kind of put it to bed in my head. It’s been a strange journey, but I’ll always be fond of it. So, I had to make some very quick choices on the character, and that was challenging.But I like the antihero-ness of this man. Sometimes you’re turning things down that are really great. It could be a very controversial and very difficult subject to tackle on film, especially violence against women, and making sure that we’re not trying to use it as just a plot device.And I think this piece was really about a young woman’s fortitude, and her journey through very tough and difficult and brutal things happen that in her life, and I feel that was a story that was worth telling.Once you showed up to play the part, what was the interesting twists and turns for you as an actor in portraying this character?It was strange because it was offered to me and I had, like, a day to prepare. You have obviously a limited amount of time to shoot movies in between working on “Game of Thrones.” Are there certain things that you kind of look for? I was quite drawn into trying to tell that story quickly.Despite that small arc, he’s very pivotal to the overall story, so that must have been an extra bit of fun trying to keep that in mind, how large he looms in her life.We go through life, and some people are in our lives for a very short space of time, but they can have great impact. I always want to try and do something different from “Thrones,” if I can; a character that’s not a sword-wielding hero, because I do that for half the year. I think it’s a very short journey that my character takes in the film. You could see the people he works with really, really have a lot of care for this man, and they like him. There was no guessing involved with Martin, and there was no shirking what his vision was.He’s very direct, and also very kind and very loving, and he kept a set that loved him deeply. He’s one of those chapters as someone who tried to help her see there could be goodness in this world. This movie is about different periods of this woman’s life, which have taken on great importance. I’ve lived with him for so long. It’s in one chapter. Tell me what it was like for you all coming back together, again sort of in that uncharted territory without an existing George R.R. Do you feel protective about him at this point and keeping his nobility intact, or are you looking for more evolution?I sort of know where he is now. At this point, having evolved him over all these seasons, what do you still love about Jon Snow? He’s one of those memories. You just know you won’t do it justice.As you left last season at “Thrones,” the bar was higher than ever -– and congratulations on what a phenomenal season that was. I really got on with Martin.

Rotten Tomatoes currently has “Iron Fist” at just 14 percent fresh, with critics ripping it apart as the worst of the four Marvel/Netflix shows leading up to “The Defenders.”Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist) is working to promote the show, and Metro.co.uk asked him about the rough early reviews. They’re not just bad, they’re Walter White bad. Like us on Facebook. Posted March 13, 2017 by Gina CarboneFinn Jones is in a tough spot. I think it’s a fantastic show which is really fun and I think it stands up there with the other Defenders’ shows without a doubt.”The fans will be able to judge for themselves soon enough. I also think some of the reviews we saw were seeing the show through a very specific lens, and I think when the fans of the Marvel Netflix world and fans of the comic books view the show through the lens of just wanting to enjoy a superhero show, then they will really enjoy what they see. What I will say is these shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans. His “Marvel’s Iron Fist” arrives on Netflix this Friday, and there’s no ignoring the reviews.

So it would be impossible to tailor any show to what the “fans” want, and the loudest voices in the room should never dictate the story.The Powers That Be do have a vision for how this will play out, based on Robert Kirkman’s comic books, and if they follow that story fairly closely, Season 8 should naturally have more of the action and urgency that (many) fans tend to prefer.”The Walking Dead” Season 7 is still airing Sundays at 9 p.m. Like us on Facebook.

And [showrunner] Scott Gimple would jump for joy knowing you asked that question because there are some people who actually think we read the reviews and tailor the show to what the fans say. Put 10 fans in a room and you’ll get 10 different ideas of what should happen next. Whether you’re loving it, hating it, or somewhere in between, The Powers That Be are blissfully ignorant. That’s just the color they went with, it’s not up for a vote.The Powers That Be should be thrilled that fans are so invested in TWD that they have strong opinions, and want certain things to happen. It would be worse if fans didn’t care. Never. Nicotero’s answer was very candid:”Nope. on AMC.Want more stuff like this? It’s not like they’re taping a show in their backyard with friends; they should care at least a little bit what the viewers want to watch. It’ll never change what any of these actors do if somebody goes, ‘Oh Daryl should do this.’ It doesn’t mean that he would do it. But “fans” is a huge group — there is no one “fan” opinion. (Someone must’ve said “earmuffs.”)TWD producer/director/special effects guru Greg Nicotero had a roundtable interview with Metro.co.uk, and the site mentioned Season 7’s falling ratings, and fan complaints of a slow pace, among other things.Will those concerns affect what they do in Season 8? We are going to write the show we want to write, and if people react to it or they don’t like it – it’s not going to change. We’re absolutely dedicated to telling the story we want to tell.”He compared it to an artist being told he or she used the wrong color for a painting.

Plec told Deadline there’s no spinoff in the works, but she does have spinoff ideas on her mind. I’ve always wanted Klaus and Caroline to have another moment, another storyline, another some sort of future. Will there be another TVD spinoff around that boarding school for gifted children?Here it is! That being said, it is during that window where the timeline would line up with what’s happening in ‘The Originals,’ and so I think that certainly there’s an opportunity, not yet planned, but an opportunity to bring some of those stories forward over into what’s happening in the land of the ‘Original’ family.””The Originals” Season 4 is starting March 17, and Deadline asked if fans can expect some seeds to bloom in this new season. yes klaroline!! “I don’t see any reboot or spinoff opportunities right now. There’s lots of opportunity, and now it’s all a matter of which roads we should go down.”Williamson added, “Look, Caroline and Alaric opening up the school for special children is one avenue we could go down for potential storyline for its own series – maybe. Plec laughed and answered, “There are seeds planted to bloom inside ‘The Originals’ should opportunity present itself. Our #Klaroline letter. “Two, because while I love the world of the boarding school and all that it represents, that would be an entirely new show that I haven’t even begun to think about, but the doors were not left open unintentionally. There are seeds planted for a new version of a show that tells a different story than the story that’s been told so far with different people. Will Caroline head over to “The Originals” now? I think the point of the finale was to say goodbye. It was teased as “the beginning of another story,” so what story and will fans ever see it? They’re open with a hope, not a promise.”Got it.
