Fasten your seatbelts: 'Mad Max: Fury Road' trailer is delightfully bonkers

Director George Miller has described his 2015 remake of Mad Max/The Road Warrior as one long, glorious action sequence that plays as “[visual] music for deaf people.” But the newest trailer for the film, which stars Tom Hardy as the titular post-apocalyptic hero, is brilliantly enhanced by an operatic score that makes horror and mayhem… well, beautiful.


First 'Mad Max: Fury Road' trailer finds Tom Hardy in captivity


Thirty years after the final film in the Mad Max trilogy came out, Max is back and madder than ever.

Tom Hardy plays Max in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, a re-imagining of the original 1979 Mad Max that starred (and launched the career of) Mel Gibson. After the success of the first in the trilogy, director George Miller went on to make Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981 and then Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in 1985 before hitting a wall in the development of a fourth film.

New 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer: Charlize Theron gives Seth MacFarlane shooting lessons -- VIDEO


The latest trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West confirms what we always knew to be true: Fairs are dangerous and terrible.

In Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming film, lots of people die — maybe not quite a million, but lots. There’s blood! There’s the sound of a human being crushed by a giant block! There are gunshots! But there’s also Charlize Theron playing MacFarlane’s love interest, which is a plus.


Casting Net: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may share the screen again; Plus, Lauren Graham, more

They sizzled in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and now Hollywood’s most famous couple may share the silver screen once more. Angelina Jolie is reportedly in early talks to star with Brad Pitt in a film that she wrote. According to Deadline, the film doesn’t have distribution yet. Very few details are currently available, but let’s take the opportunity to remember the time they did THIS. [Deadline]

'A Million Ways to Die in the West' red-band trailer: Is this Seth MacFarlane's 'Blazing Saddles'? -- VIDEO

Like Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles, Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West is a gleefully profane, proudly anachronistic Western spoof set in the mid to late 19th century that features an unlikely hero, a gorgeous blond love interest, at least one big campfire scene, cartoonish violence, jokes about sharpshooting, jokes about promiscuous frontier ladies, jokes about Native Americans who just might be Members of the Tribe (“Mila Kunis” is the new “Loz im geyn!”), and lots — I mean lots — of slapstick humor.

And unlike the classic 1974 comedy, A Million Ways probably won’t break any new ground — though it is pretty cool to see major talents like Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman, Liam Neeson, and, yes, MacFarlane himself united in the same goofy joke factory. (Another Brooksian touch: The Family Guy creator is the film’s director, co-writer, and star.) Though be forewarned: Given the graphic nature of a few scenes in the following restricted trailer, you might want to wait to watch until after you’ve eaten lunch. And the language is obscene enough to make Mel himself proud. Hosti gezen in dayne lebn?

'Dark Places' preview: Charlize Theron on playing the 'complicated' Libby Day

Gone Girl isn’t the only Gillian Flynn novel headed to the big screen. A film based on Flynn’s 2009 thriller Dark Places also promises to deliver some creepy surprises. Charlize Theron stars as Libby Day, the traumatized survivor of the brutal murder of her mom and sisters who teams up with a band of murder-obsessed amateur sleuths (self-dubbed the Kill Club) to uncover unsettling secrets about her family.

In her career, Theron has played a murderous prostitute and a narcissistic young-adult author, yet playing a woman as emotionally removed as Libby still posed a challenge. “I like complicated characters,” she says. “And there’s something about Libby — she doesn’t make it easy.”

And Theron didn’t make the role easy on herself. She spent much of a summertime shoot in Louisiana wearing a leather jacket. “Not the smartest!” she jokes. But Flynn, a former writer for EW, gives Theron total props for her transformation as Libby. “She’s mind-bogglingly beautiful in her natural state, and to watch her assume the posture of Libby was really spectacular,” says Flynn.

Flynn even had the opportunity to share a scene with Theron in a brief cameo. “In my cameo, she and I exchange a little glance,” says Flynn. “I’m pretty sure she gave me respect for my acting chops — the look you’ll see in the film is, ‘Wow, Flynn. You’re pretty awesome.'” She’s quick to add, “Not really!”

Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron find 'A Million Ways to Die in the West': See the first photo

And now for something completely different: Seth MacFarlane wrote and directed a western! Starring Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried… and himself!

A Million Ways to Die in the West, or Sausage Curls: The Movie, casts MacFarlane as Albert, a humble sheep farmer who finds himself humiliated when his girlfriend (Seyfried) leaves him for the dapper gent who runs their town’s local “moustachery” (Harris, natch). Luckily, he learns to find his courage when he meets a more age-appropriate love interest (Theron), the mysterious wife of an infamous outlaw.

Check below to see all four members of the film’s main love square in character. If we know MacFarlane — and we think we do — it’s safe to guess that this confrontation leads into a lavish musical number, right? (Perhaps an updated version of “The Farmer and the Cowman Should Be Friends”?)
