Review: Nicole Kidman as a hardened LA cop in ‘Destroyer’
A different Nicole Kidman stares out at us under the harsh Los Angeles sun of the neo-noir "Destroyer."
The actress who famously donned a prosthetic nose for "The Hours" has here gone to greater and grittier lengths of transformation. Her eyes are sunken. Her skin is hardened. Her stare is provocatively hollow. She looks dead inside — nearly so on the outside, too.
Theron, Heard, Kendrick celebrate ‘incredible women’
Heard, Malek, Theron, more, support HFPA’s charity work
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Avengers: Infinity War" did even better than expected in its second weekend in theaters, grossing an additional $114.8 million and bringing its domestic total to $453.1 million.
In a distant second was "Overboard," a remake of the 1987 comedy starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris, which earned a solid $14.7 million in its first weekend — more than the film cost to produce.
Q&A: Theron, Davis on kinship, Netflix and supportive actors
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlize Theron had wanted to work again with screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman since the movie "Young Adult," in which Theron got to play a true mess of a character — alcoholic, all-around stunted and viciously hilarious.
Review: In ‘Tully,’ a rare close-up of postnatal motherhood
NEW YORK (AP) — The title character of Jason Reitman's "Tully" descends not from the clouds, carried by an umbrella in the wind, but glides cheerfully through the front door on a black night. She arrives just as Marlo (Charlize Theron), the mother of two plus an unplanned-for newborn, is reaching the limits of exhaustion.
Theron ‘empowered’ by choosing when to have kids
Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody continues to explore the travails of being a mom
In “Juno,” starring Ellen Page, Diablo Cody wrote an Oscar-winning screenplay about a snarky, expectant 16-year-old girl reaching parenthood before she reached high school graduation. With “Young Adult,” starring Charlize Theron, Cody focused on a depressed, divorced 30-something hellbent on winning back her former boyfriend whose wife just had their first child. Her dramatic focus in “Ricki and the Flash,” starring Meryl Streep, was a self-centered woman who abandoned her children to chase a dream of becoming a rock star. Her Emmy-winning Showtime series “United States of Tara” starred Toni Collette as a suburban mom with multiple personality disorder.

Billy Summers: ‘Red Sparrow’ has the makings of a good spy movie, but it’s much too slow
I can't wait for the new Francis Lawrence ("Water for Elephants," "I Am Legend," "The Hunger Games" franchise) adaptation of "Red Sparrow" to come out on DVD!
Then I can speed it up to about 125 percent and watch a very good movie.
Review: Throwback crime caper ‘Gringo’ has holes
David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton star in mid-level kidnapping comedy
"Disfruta Mexico" — translation: enjoy Mexico — a prominently placed billboard reads in the background of a scene near the end of "Gringo." The kidnapping comedy isn't exactly a tourist ad for our neighbors to the south. There are scant pleasures to enjoy in this twisty caper, in which a web of characters — most of them seedy, a few of them pure, all of them dim — see their lives intersect in a trip to Mexico.
Film Review: A good cast can’t save contrived ‘Gringo’
The good news is David Oyelowo is a terrific comedic actor (who knew!).
The bad news is that the vehicle for discovery, Nash Edgerton's "Gringo ," is a contrived action-comedy that is trying its hardest to shock and offend, but, you know, in a funny, cool B-movie way that involves someone's toe getting cut off with wire clippers and Charlize Theron, a seductress in a corner suite, talking a lot about sex.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Even at 68, Pam Grier looks like she can still kick butt.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Emoji Movie" has a happy face after overcoming bad reviews to debut in second place at the weekend box office, but not the big grin "Dunkirk" has after claiming the top spot for two weeks in a row.
The Christopher Nolan World War II drama added another $26.6 million to its haul over the weekend, bringing its domestic ticket total over $101 million in just two weeks. The riotous R-rated comedy "Girls Trip" also maintained its momentum in its second week of release.

Movie review: ‘Atomic Blonde’ finds Charlize Theron in kick-butt mode as Cold War spy
Strong, tenacious and tough as nails, Charlize Theron put the Furiosa in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” the best movie of 2015 and groundbreaking in the way it framed females in the male-dominated action-blockbuster genre.
At the time, I couldn’t help but think: When is someone going to give this woman her own action movie?
The answer is now, the movie is “Atomic Blonde,” and Theron is savage and sexy and unafraid of stunt-work that calls for her kicking guys’ butts.

Review: In ‘Atomic Blonde,’ Theron heats up the Cold War
People don't usually move very fast in Cold War thrillers. Mostly, the only time anyone runs is right before they get shot in the back. Most of the "action" happens in a film cabinet, down a back alley or with a silencer. The classic Cold War tale — which is to say a John le Carre one — is characterized by a deathly stillness: grave faces meeting under gray clouds.
Theron: Women treament in action genre unfair

The Academy Award-winning actress has admitted to sexually experimenting earlier in her life - but Charlize insisted she "really like dudes".

"I always say to studios, 'Make more female-driven movies,' " Theron said. "They said, 'We would if people go and see them.' So go see those movies!"
Charlize Theron initially pretended her father's death "didn't happen."
The 41-year-old actress was just a young girl when her mother Gerda shot dead her alcoholic dad Charles in self-defense after he threatened them both while drunk and, although she's now come to terms with the incident, she initially found it easier to block it from her memory rather than dwell on it and feel sorry for herself.
Charlize Theron rejected a role in 'Wonder Woman'.
