Let's face it: If you had to pick five Hollywood starlets to become your wives in a post-apocalyptic future, chances are you would at least consider giving one of those slots to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. It's just simple logic.
And that's why today's announcement that Huntington-Whiteley has officially joined the cast of "Mad Max: Fury Road" as one of the film's "five wives" makes so much sense.
Hey, if she's tough enough to face off against the Decepticons, chances are she can handle a few mutants on motorcycles, right? Get More »
He may have gone "Beyond Thunderdome," but Mad Max has gone way beyond his scheduled return to big screen post-apocalyptic ass-kicking, with a 27-year gap between the Tina Turner-tastic previous film and his latest assless chaps odyssey.
Now Max is done with his pit stop and back on the "Fury Road," at least according to The Daily Telegraph (via The Playlist) who claim that the blockbuster will begin shooting in Namibia this month and is taking supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw along for the ride.
A native of Melbourne, Australia, home of the original trilogy and director George Miller, Kershaw's gap-toothed, piercing princess look is perfect for wandering the wastelands as "part of a convoy known as the 'Five Wives' being pursued by the bad guys." The role was originally intended for Theresa Palmer, who had to back out when the shoot for the first in a planned trilogy got indefinitely delayed last year. Get More »
Considering how badly "Happy Feet Two" has tanked at the box office so far, having earned just $44 million compared to a $135 million budget, you might forgive director George Miller for feeling like the film was his own personal apocalypse.
But according indieWire, Miller has already moved on to the post-apocalyptic stage -- the post-apocalyptic world of "Mad Max," that is.
After nearly a full decade of development, the "Mad Max" reboot "Fury Road" is back on track and Miller is so stoked about it that he's already talking trilogy. Guess the apocalypse isn't quite so bad as we thought after all. Get More »
With more than 130 signature (i.e. crazy) vehicles built and some minor sequences already shot, things were looking good for the planned 2011 shoot of the long-awaited "Mad Max: Fury Road" until it became "Mad Max: Wet & Soggy Road" with the arrival of rain in the Broken Hill Region of New South Wales, Australia.
The serious rainstorms turned the production's specially chosen barren wasteland into a Garden of Eden bursting with flowers –not exactly an appropriate setting for leather-clad S&M motorcycle mutants who murder for gasoline. Get More »
Between starring in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" last year and a gig opposite Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe (in "December Boys"), some sort of magic must have rubbed off on Teresa Palmer.
For starters, the 24-year-old Australian will soon have two buzzworthy performances in theaters. She's already kicking major alien butt in "I Am Number Four," and follows it up Friday as the '80s-era romantic heroine of "Take Me Home Tonight." While it's debatable which outfit the blond looks better in – her leathers and sunglasses as Number Six or her big hair and gold lamé dress for Tori – one thing is certain.
She's kind of awesome.
When we sat down with her to talk about her trip back in time, it was her frankness, humor and self-deprecation (in true Aussie style) that impressed us even more than her killer bod and gorgeous face. See for yourself… Get More »
