After battling Batman will Henry Cavill’s next role be opposite Christian Grey?
He’s about to return to our screens as Superman in the upcoming Dawn of Justice, but the current Man of Steel Henry Cavill is rumoured to have signed on to another big franchise, but this one’s a lot kinkier. The British hunk is said to have joined the cast of sequel Fifty Shades Darker, playing Anastasia Steele’s sexy boss Jack Hyde.
Will Henry Cavil be starring in Fifty Shades Darker?
But while nothing’s been confirmed, Cavill didn’t do much to put an end to the rumours during a recent interview with E! When asked if he really had signed up for Fifty Shades Darker the actor replied, "Basically, what I can say is I can't say anything about it right now.”

The actress revealed her disastrous exchange with the President on Jimmy Kimmel's show
Charlize Theron: world class actress; style supremo; perfect interviewee; and pusher of strip clubs to Presidents. That’s what the 39-year-old Mad Max star told Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week when revealing what she had said to President Obama when they both appeared on a previous Kimmel episode.
Even actresses get star-struck and say the wrong thing
The President of the United States had specifically waited to meet Charlize backstage and told her he enjoyed being on a show where he could reach a younger demographic.
Lucy Lawless says it's just a rumour, but we can dream.
So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?
In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

Soon though she meets Lyle Wirth, a member of a ghoulish group named The Kill Club, full of crime obsessed wannabe detectives who enjoy solving vicious crimes.

She's sure it was him, but now she's forced to return to that time in her life and remember exactly what happened in the moments leading up to the tragedy - and that gets even more complicated when she finally visits Ben in prison.

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron have separated, multiple sources confirm.
Sean Penn and Charlize Theron are no longer a couple, sources claim. The news was first reported on Wednesday by a US entertainment website. Their split has come as a shock for many as the former couple appeared incredibly happy and very much together at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere in Los Angeles only last month.
Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have reportedly split up.
Looks like George Miller isn't done with Mad Max yet...
It's been 30 years since George Miller completed his trilogy of movies starring Mel Gibson: Mad Max (1979), The Road Warrior (1981) and Beyond Thunderdome (1985). In the intervening years he's kept busy with the Babe and Happy Feet franchises. But now he's back with Mad Max: Fury Road, which he refuses to call either a sequel or a reboot. He's just freshening the franchise, like the James Bond movies do every few years.
Tom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road
And he said this week that he has "other stories and other scripts" ready to go if Fury Road is a box office success. "It really depends on whether everyone, particularly me, has an appetite to go back into the wasteland," he says of the post-apocalyptic desert setting. "It's like asking a woman who's just given birth, 'You wanna try it again?'"
Continue reading: Mad Max: Fury Road Returns George Miller To His Roots
Leave it to a veteran to show the young sparks how to do it: it's been 30 years since George Miller last visited his post-apocalyptic hero Max Rockatansky, and now he's back with the best-staged action thriller of the year, a blockbuster that dares to have meaningful themes and complex characters. He also recreates Mad Max as a kind of James Bond franchise with a story that sits alongside the earlier films, not before or after, and an actor who brings a new energy to the role.
In a desert wasteland where people trade water and oil to survive, Max (Tom Hardy) is a loner haunted by the death of his family. Then he's captured by a gang from the Citadel, a towering rock city run by the tyrant Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), who has positioned himself as a god who keeps his enslaved people on a short leash. On a mission to collect oil, Joe's top imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) veers her war-rig off into the desert. So Joe sends a gang after her. Leading the charge is the gung-ho Nux (Nicholas Hoult), who uses Max, strapped to his car like a grille ornament, as a blood-bag to supply energy. But after a series of clashes involving three other gangs of desert marauders, Max and Nux end up on board Furiosa's rig, in which she is hoping to smuggle Joe's five young wives to safety.
The plot itself is fairly blunt, which means that the film requires very little dialogue (Max doesn't speak at all for the first 45 minutes, mainly because his houth is actually bolted shut). Even so, Miller fills every shot with telling details that strengthen the characters and provide insight into what they are doing, building more intriguing relationships with suspicious glances than most filmmakers do with endless conversation.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' is out this week, and its star Theron used a promotional interview to praise the film for its unusual attitude towards its female characters.
Charlize Theron has spoken out about what she believes is the tendency of sci-fi movies to misrepresent female characters. She is currently one of the stars of Mad Max: Fury Road and claims that the film is an anomaly in that it does contain strong female lead characters.
The 39 year old actress, who portrays Imperator Furiosa in George Miller’s re-boot of his own original imagining of a post-apocalypse Australia, was speaking on ‘Live! With Kelly and Michael’ on Monday, and she vented her frustration at the typical depiction of women in science fiction films.

"We’ve been friends for twenty years,” Charlize told the magazine. "He was married [to ex-wife Robin Wright], I was in a long-term relationship [with Stuart Townsend], our spouses—not regularly, but we were in each other’s lives. I think our friendship stemmed from mutual respect—more on my end, because I really didn’t have a body of work twenty years ago, but my love and passion for making films—that was our common ground.”

Check out the explosive trailer below
While Mad Max has never been a docile franchise, we were still surprised at just how ridiculous the “Western on wheels” – as creator George Miller described it – looks with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron leading the cast. Check it out for yourself below.
Tom Hardy takes on Mad Max
It’s the first trailer for the fourth Mad Max: Fury Road, and it follows a slew of new pictures and information all revealed surrounding this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Set in a dystopian future in the plains of arid Australia, Max is charged with combating crazed gangs that roam the lands on emphatically – and terrifyingly - decorated vehicles.
Max Rockatansky is a formidable traveller of the Australian outback, still fighting against the dystopian setting whereby population is low and resources are few. He is still suffering from past traumas - the loss of his family due to rogue criminals - and is scarred from his frequent rescue missions of the various tribes he has come across over the decades. This time, however, he is more prepared than ever to deal with the ever growing brutality of the ruffians out to kill him, and as usual he is prepared to be just as savage in order to survive. It's been a long time since any kind of law and order was held in the world, so sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. On his latest journey for peace, he meets Furiosa; a woman desperate to live life once again and is convinced that her childhood hometown on the other side of the desert holds the key to tranquility in her life.

George Miller, the man who first brought Mad Max to the big screen returned to helm this new installment of the beloved post-apocalyptic action series. According to Miller, the film keeps the dialogue to a minimum, opting instead for blistering action sequences and threadbare characterization. "I wanted to tell a linear story-a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes," the filmmaker told "EW."

Two Oscar winning actress have this week cause outrage with their choice of comparatives while discussing their online experiences.
While speaking to tech site Re/Code on Tuesday (25th), Gwyneth Paltrow chose to liken reading negative comments about herself online to war. Then, days later, Charlize Theron caused outrage when she compared her experiences of Googling herself to rape in an interview with Sky News. Unsurprisingly both actresses' comments have been met with a furore of online backlash with many asking how the two women could be so insensitive.
Charlize's comments have caused outrage in recent days
Paltrow said on Tuesday,”You come across [online comments] about yourself and your friends, and it’s a very dehumanising thing.” Adding “It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanising thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience."
The 38 year-old actress made an inappropriate comparison when talking about the photographers and press trying to exploit her personal life.
Charlize Theron may have gone too far with her most recent derogatory comments.
The 38 year-old actress is feeling the backlash of making a very inappropriate comparison while speaking with Sky news.
Press are known for being intrusive, but according to Theron, being subjected to the media's scrutiny is the same as being raped and that "every aspect" of her life is just "fodder for an article."
The actress doesn't enjoy the constant glare of the media spotlight.
Charlize Theron has spoken out on the subject of the media and how she is tired of being pursued and scrutinised by the press at her every turn. The South African-born actress likened the media's feverish interest in her personal life to rape and didn't back down when challenged about the strong comparison she had just made.
"I don't [Google myself] - that's my saving grace," she told Sky News in a video interview as the conversation moved on to her portrayal in the gossip media. "When you start living in that world, and doing that, you start feeling raped," she added sternly.
When quizzed as to whether she meant to use rape as a comparable sentiment, the actress replied: "Well, when it comes to your son and your private life. Maybe it's just me. Some people might relish in all that stuff but there are certain things in my life that I think of as very sacred and I am very protective over them.
After the success of Ted, Seth MacFarlane gives himself his first leading-man role in this hilarious but overlong comedy-Western. The film is clearly a passion project, as it reveals MacFarlane's love of the genre with knowing jokes in between the usual gross-out humour. But it also feels stretched rather thin, and would feel even funnier with a zippier pace and tighter story.
In 1882 Arizona almost anything can kill you. Albert (MacFarlane) is a sheep farmer who has very little respect in his tiny frontier town. His girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) has just dumped him and taken up with smug Moustachery manager Foy (Neal Patrick Harris). And his best pal Edward (Giovanni Ribisi) has issues of his own, determined to wait until marriage to have sex with his fiancee, the town's most popular prostitute Ruth (Sarah Silverman). Then a stranger rides in: Anna (Charlize Theron) is trapped in a marriage to the local outlaw Clinch (Liam Neeson) and needs a place to hide. And in Albert she finds the kind of nice guy she thought didn't actually exist in the West.
MacFarlane's most clever decision was to surround himself with terrific actors who can effortlessly play both comedy and drama. As a result he just about gets away with a performance that doesn't stretch him at all. Theron is especially good, bringing an offhanded humour to her scenes that grounds the entire film. She may roll her eyes at the bad jokes while laughing openly at the good ones, but she stays firmly in character, which makes her scenes with MacFarlane and Neeson crackle with all kinds of romantic energy.
Continue reading: A Million Ways To Die In The West Review
Albert is a rather introverted sheep farmer who tries at all costs to avoid confrontation with the occasional gun-toting outlaw who may pass through the small Arizona town in which he lives. His reluctance to engage in any kind of combat has cost him his girlfriend, but on the upside, he's still alive - which is more than can be said for a large percentage of townspeople. There is danger is every turn and Albert is feeling a little low in confidence - that is, until the arrival of the town's feisty new resident Anna. She wants to show him how to aim and fire a loaded pistol and, generally, how to win a fight, which is just as well because one man is on his way over with the intention of dominating the town with his formidable reputation. Unfortunately for Albert, he's Anna's estranged husband and, with Albert having spent so much time with her, it is starting to look like he's finally run out of luck.
