Busy actress and Hollywood mom Charlize Theron continues her promotional tour ahead of this weekend’s presumed massive box-office release of the latest film in the long-running “Fast & Furious” series. The eight film in the series, “The Fate of the Furious” stars a deep and expensive cast including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren. The films are normally runaway successes right out of the box, so a production budget of around $250 million is nothing for producers to recoup. The first seven films earned a combined $2.9 billion at the box-office following a combined production budget of roughly $1 billion, so that’s a pretty damn good return! Wow.
Anyway, here are clips from Charlize’s interview last night with Jimmy Kimmel:
Ready or not, but the new “Fast & Furious” is set for a wide release later this month! The latest film titled “The Fate of the Furious” will hit theaters on April 14 and stars a number of A-list names including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron and even Helen Mirren! The film’s producer and lead actor Vin Diesel, along with costar Charlize Theron were on hand for the premiere yesterday in Berlin.

As we mentioned yesterday, film industry trade show CinemaCon is in its final day at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. It was a star-studded affair with A-list names showing up to represent their upcoming blockbusters for various production houses. You can visit the event’s official website for plenty more photos.
These particular photos were snapped at an event held by Hollywood production and distribution house Focus Features. Charlize Theron and Naomi Watts were looking great, while Kirsten Dunst not so much.
Talk about an A-list line-up! Costars Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, and Emily Blunt were attendance at ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War‘ premiere in Los Angeles last night. The film will hit theaters on April 22.
The film, which also stars Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, is a prequel to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” and focuses heavily on the Hunstman’s battle with evil sisters. You can ready more about the plot here.

This is to compliment our two earlier posts featuring photos from the 2016 MTV Movie Awards over the weekend. The annual movie awards catering to a younger MTV-watching audience (wait, kids still watch MTV?!) was held at Warner Bros Studios in Burbank on Saturday evening & broadcast on Sunday night. This was the first time the network opted against a live broadcast.
The big winners were “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for Movie of the Year, Leo for “The Revenant” and Charlize for “Mad Max: Fury Road”. For a complete list of the “winners,” check here.
We ran out of time yesterday, so we only posted photos of Selena Gomez at We Day California. Here are a few of our other favorites in attendance. Olivia Holt is obviously killing it, but I gotta say, she’s dressed totally inappropriately for the event. Even Bea Miller is looking way too sexy, although I’m sure you guys don’t mind.
As we noted yesterday “WE Day is a celebration of youth making a difference in their local and global communities. WE Schools is the yearlong program that nurtures compassion in young people and gives them the tools to create transformational social change. Together they offer young people the tools and the inspiration to take social action, empower others and transform lives—including their own.” (Source: We Day)
Here’s Charlize Theron in attendance at the photocall event in Milan for her latest film “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” which will hit theaters in the U.S. on April 22.

Co-stars Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Chris Hemsworth were on hand at a photo call event held for their latest film ‘The Huntsman and The Ice Queen’ (U.S. title: ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’) at the Park Hyatt in Hamburg.
The producers of the latest film, which is actually a prequel/sequel to 2012’s ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, made two major changes. In light of the adulterous scandal during the first film’s production which involved director Rupert Sanders cheating on his wife with actress Kristen Stewart, both Sanders & Stewart won’t be involved with ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’. They were replaced with Cedric Nicolas-Troyan as the new director and Emily Blunt, who scored the role as The Ice Queen (the sister of Charlize Theron’s character the Evil Queen). The film will hit U.S. theaters on April 22 (European release dates are earlier).
The big winners: “Spotlight” was somewhat of a surprise in the best picture category because I was expecting “The Revenant” to sweep, but who knows, maybe the Academy was looking to make some sort of political statement? Although, Leo & “The Revenant” director Alejandro G. Iñárritu didn’t look all that disappointed, but that’s probably because the two already won in their respective categories. Brie Larson won for her role in the ultra-creepy film “Room”. The beautiful Alicia Vikander won in the Best Supporting Actress winner for her work in “The Danish Girl”. Check here for the complete list of winners.

For those of you who don’t know, Charlize Theron was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace back in 2008 for her activism through her own nonprofit, The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project. The organization was created with the goal to support African youth in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The South African beauty was on hand at the at the 2015 Social Good Summit showing her support. Here’s more about the event from the official press release earlier this year:
The sixth annual Social Good Summit, a unique convening of world leaders, new media and technology experts, grassroots activists and voices from around the world, today announced that its marquee event coinciding with United Nations Week, will take place on September 27 and 28 at 92nd Street Y in New York with a week of related activities around the globe including meet-ups hosted locally by members of the social good community, and signature events supported by Social Good Summit partners.
