Charlize Theron movies: 15 greatest films ranked worst to best
Charlize Theron returned to the Oscar race this week with a Best Actress nomination for “Bombshell.” The Academy Award winner earned raves for her eerie embodiment of former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, but where does the role fall into the rest of her filmography? Tour through our photo gallery of Theron’s 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Success came pretty quickly for the South African born actress. After one uncredited role in a horror film, Theron burst onto movie screens in the film “2 Days in the Valley.” That film launched her into a series of roles usually as the wife or girlfriend and ones that capitalized on her stunning beauty. That all changed in 2003 when she took on the role of Aileen Wuornos, a Florida prostitute who became a serial killer and was put to death for her crimes. The film

Charlize Theron Receives American Cinematheque Tribute And Gets Roasted By Two Seths – MacFarlane And Rogen
Charlize Theron became the 33rd recipient, and 7th woman, and first South African to get the American Cinematheque Award on Friday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Created in 1986 as a sort of antidote to the AFI Life Achievement Award it is meant to honor someone in the middle of their career, not the end as so many of these life achievement awards tend to do. In terms of staying alive and active , the Cinematheque has made some remarkably durable choices with only one winner, 1988 honoree Robin Williams no longer with us, and the other 32 beginning with Eddie Murphy in 1986 still alive and thriving, presumably continuing to fight the good fight as the Cinematheque honor is designed to encourage. Unlike the AFI honor which comes in the spring, this one is presented right in the heart of the Hollywood awards season and thus often goes to people who may be

Charlize Theron’s Badass Collaborators Give Spark to Cinematheque Tribute Event
A mathematical calculus goes into attending a movie star tribute. Truth is, most people would rather be home in their pajamas on a Friday night. So why turn up in black tie for salty Beverly Hilton salmon at the American Cinematheque Awards?

If you’re a big enough name, you don’t have to. “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins, who also helmed Charlize Theron’s Oscar-winning “Monster,” and Theron’s “Bombshell” costars Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, delivered video tributes, along with Tom Hanks, who starred with Theron back in 1996 in “That Thing You Do!” “The more famous people Skyped in,” observed Seth Rogen, who showed up to present Theron with the 33rd American Cinematheque Award.

Here’s why these Hollywood folks agree to participate in these fundamentally fake events.

‘In the Tall Grass’ Trailer: Patrick Wilson in Netflix’s Stephen King Thriller Adds to His Horror Bona Fides

‘In the Tall Grass’ Trailer: Patrick Wilson in Netflix’s Stephen King Thriller Adds to His Horror Bona Fides
Stephen King’s very good year is still in full swing. The master of horror’s oeuvre has been mined for countless screen adaptations over the years, to varying degrees of success. But these days, with horror more popular than ever, anything with King’s name on it is the closest thing to a surefire success Hollywood has. This month saw the release of “It: Chapter Two,” the sequel to last year’s surprise blockbuster “It.” November brings rising horror star Mike Flanagan’s “Doctor Sleep,” a sequel to “The Shining” which pulls from the eponymous 2013 King novel and sets Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Danny Torrance.

Smack in the middle of the two major theatrical releases, Netflix will premiere “In the Tall Grass,” based on a lesser-known novella written by King and Joe Hill. The newly released first trailer promises a setup ripe with tension as well as strong

‘Jennifer’s Body’ Turns 10: Megan Fox, Diablo Cody and Karyn Kusama Reflect on Making the Cult Classic
Months before “Jennifer’s Body” hit multiplexes on Sept. 18, 2009, writer Diablo Cody had a feeling the edgy horror-comedy would tank. And flop it did, despite the screenwriter taking home an Oscar for her debut film “Juno” a year earlier. Cody easily found a studio to finance “Jennifer’s Body” after the success of the Ellen Page-led teen pregnancy comedy, but the disappointing marketing strategy and pans from focus groups and critics seemed to be a sure recipe for box office collapse. Fast forward a decade, and now, the film is regarded as a cult classic.

“Jennifer’s Body” grossed a lackluster $31.6 million worldwide on a $16 million budget and was significantly beaten out by 2009 horror flicks “Paranormal Activity,” “Zombieland,” “The Final Destination” a remake of “Friday the 13th.” Megan Fox — who became a Hollywood sex symbol after her depiction of Mikaela Banes in the 2007 film “Transformers” — starred, and Cody said that because of her image,

August 7, 2019, will mark the 44th birthday of Charlize Theron, an actress who has made huge transformations throughout her career. Success came pretty quickly for the South African born actress.

That all changed in 2003 when she took on the role of Aileen Wuornos, a Florida prostitute who became a serial killer and was put to death for her crimes.

Veronica Mars: Everything You Need to Know About Patton Oswalt's Role in Season 4

  • Popsugar
Hulu's reboot of Veronica Mars comes with a cast of colorful characters, including one quaint true crime connoisseur named Penn Epner played by none other than comedian Patton Oswalt. Besides delivering pizza to Neptune's partiers, the self-proclaimed Murderhead will pretty much do whatever it takes to get his 15 seconds of fame, and if he looks familiar, it's because you've definitely seen the actor behind the character before if you've tuned into pop culture at some point over the last two decades.

Known for his hilarious television characters, Oswalt has deep roots in the stand-up and sitcom worlds. In fact, his first acting gig was on the Seinfeld episode "The Couch." His TV career has been a widely successful one, as he starred as Kevin James's nerdy best friend on King of Queens from 1998 to 2007. Besides countless guest appearances on your favorite series, he also currently appears on NBC
