Chris Pine may not be the first and only white man to aid in the continual evolution of onscreen masculine identity, but in 2017, he appears to have gotten further than most. — Sheryl Oh, FSR. Read more:
I love this idea that you’ve got a sword in one hand and a baby on your hip. You had to keep up with the men because there’s no room on a ship for ornaments—but we only know about the ones they caught. There may have been scores of pirate women who lived and died that we just don’t know about. — Laura Sook Duncombe with Lorraine Boissoneault, Smithsonian. (Thanks to Lulu Jemimah) Read more:
If Wonder Woman does well on opening weekend, it sets a precedent for female-centered action films and female directors and we’ll see more of these stories on screens soon. Hollywood is a business that responds to box office. – Kirsten Schaffer, Women in Film. Read More:
A terrifying new civilization is being conceived, founded on strongmen like Immortan Joe, who has carved out an empire inside a mountain fortress called the Citadel… It appears that Miller has looked out at the world at this moment and distilled its darkest truths into a cinematic nightmare. – Bilge Ebiri, LA Weekly.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy: “I think the character of Rey, the character of Jyn, these are empowered women that are not necessarily just taking on male characteristics. These are genuinely female heroines. I think that’s really important, and I think it will make a difference.” – Lucas Siegel, comicbook.com. Read more:
Must have been so much fun for Margaret Sixel to edit Fury Road ! Won an Oscar for editing 470 hrs of raw footage into Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), tho she’d never cut an action movie before.
See Raw Action Footage here: (no CGI). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfm4gvxNW_o
Sixel’s edited many films, including Babe: Pig in the City (1998) & Happy Feet (2006). Props to the stunt men & women, & the production team!
Female hero, Jyn Erso, to be featured in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” toy line.
“People aren’t born sexist — they are raised to be. So when you give boys toys and T-shirts that lack female representation, you’re telling them that women don’t deserve to be represented in the culture. But give them a female action figure at an early age before all of that bullshit has been implanted in their heads, and not only will they play with the damn thing, but they might just grow up thinking women are equal to men. Take them to see movies with women saving the world, and they’ll want a T-shirt with her picture on it.” – Casey Cipriani, Women and Hollywood. Read More:
More than a century ago, before women could vote in many countries, women dominated popular and successful action movies in the ‘serial’ or ‘chapter’ film genre, with its extraordinary emphasis on female heroism. What happened to the film industry’s tolerance of greater female involvement at all levels of the filmmaking process?
