Favorite character in the Mad Max universe. Only slightly behind Assless Chaps Raider #3.

So they dumped Charliz for a younger girl and made it a prequel.  Pass.

Can we clock out her 15 minutes?
Blank stare underbite is not an actress.


/I like her, in fact
//but someone else, please?

I'm not particularly interested in a Mad Max prequel.  Because things continually get worse in that world, there's not much point in jumping back to watch the decline prior to the most recent story.

If it's still getting rave reviews a month after it's 'in the wild', I'll eventually watch it somewhere, but it's not going to get me to part with any extra cash.

Given her eyes are almost on the side of her head and her chin is about as dainty as it could be without coming to an actual point... I have to wonder if one of her parents was a deer.

Dammit, there goes my studman69-esque comment.

That is what makes it a brag/show of wealth and power.

That and it might not be fuel grade material. Not certain as I do not know how to compare the flames to tell the difference.

Does Miller have some kind of personal grudge against Theron? It just makes no sense to make a sequel/prequel and ditch the star who everyone loves.

The anticipated budget increase for her salary for starring in the follow-up might have ended negotiations before they started.

Or it could be scheduling.

I can't imagine a lot of have a grudge against Theron, especially compared to her bankability.

This was always going to be a prequel. Almost as soon as Fury Road was doing well he said he wanted to do a prequel and ATJ has been attached for ages.

Taylor-Joy is a lovely woman but the way she and/or her makeup people feel the need to make her cheekbones look like...*that*... is downright weird.

Reading the headline, I thought maybe another Riddick movie was coming out. But that would have been Furya.

The guy ditched Gibson and proceeded to make maybe the best action movie ever.  I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

/also made the 2nd greatest action movie, and did with this guy as his star:

It's coming. And I'll see it, kind of a guilty pleasure but Riddick movies are fun.

I was hoping for a Hermione Granger meets Carrie sort of pitch after Harry and Ron dissed her at prom... FurioSAH!

Whenever Max helped a group start on the path to rebuilding civilization, he always got left behind or moved on. Miller's never been interested in showing the world get back on its feet again. He revels in the chaos of the post-apocalyptic collapse, and that's always been the setting where he wants his characters to remain. He also likes his protagonists to be loners and misfits, participating in others' schemes for as long as it suits their needs, but always wanting to break free afterwards and live on their own terms. But a sequel with Furiosa would have to show her as the boss, dealing with governmental restructuring, resource management, gardening and farming, and just generally cleaning up the mess. That's not Miller's thing at all. He only likes structure when it means he gets to blow it up at the end. (Eat it, Bartertown!)

A Furiosa prequel keeps her in a broken system, chafing against its madness. It makes sense he'd rather go that route, because the only other likely choice is to follow Max as he stumbles into some other fresh mess that demands a wild car chase. But besides wanting to bring back Furiosa, I think Miller's very fond of Immortan Joe and the War Boys, and instead of trying to create a new bunch of comparable wasteland maniacs, a prequel lets him get the whole gang together again.

I wonder if that's intentional to give her a unique "look".  Because it really isn't necessary, her face is borderline asymmetrical and those big eyes just grab you.

I liked The Chronicles of Riddick because it was a high concept sci-fi story but most people didn't dig what they were laying down so the next film was simply called "Riddick" and they went back to the Riddick fighting monsters well.

It's set decades before the last movie and Theron is 46 years old.

Effects and stunt wise, it was very good.

As a movie, they drove out for a day and drove back in. it's like an nes game plot
