Charlize Theron was too young to remember George Miller’s first Mad Max film, but she vividly remembers hearing about the franchise in her native South Africa, and first seeing Miller’s post apocalyptic world in Tupac’s “California Love” video.

Thats right. Theron admitted to HipHollywood that the song and the Hype Williams directed video were pretty popular in South Africa and she was a huge fan.

“I know that video very well,” said Theron with a smile. ” For some reason Mad Max resonated with people in South Africa and South African culture, and my parents loved the Mad Max films, so I got the Tupac connection. ”

Now some 20 years later Theron is starring alongside Tom Hardy in Miller’s third film from the franchise, Mad Max: Fury Road, and she’s pretty kick ass.  Check out the video above to hear her talk about her role as Furiosa, and also Zoe Kravitz, who plays Toast, open up about her love for the franchise.

Mad Max: Fury Road is in theaters May 15.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
