There's one person who's pretty much inescapable in movie theaters at the moment, and that's Charlize Theron. Last weekend, she was the evil queen Ravenna in "Snow White And The Huntsman," and this weekend, she's the biggest name (although not the biggest part) among the ensemble cast of "Prometheus" -- a film that she was originally pegged to play the lead in. And in a few weeks, she'll start filming on the long-gestating "Fury Road," George Miller's return to the "Mad Max" world. Between those three, she's become the queen of the blockbuster world, and with a performance in "Young Adult" that might have been her most widely acclaimed ever, Theron's as big a star as she's ever been.

After directing one of the biggest surprises both commericially and critically last summer in "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," Rupert Wyatt hasn't rushed into his next gig. Oh sure, there is the inevitable 'Apes' sequel which he is slated to direct, but with Andy Serkis busy on Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" -- not only starring, but doing second unit work as well -- Fox will have to wait until he returns from the Shire. Until then, Warner Bros. has set up Wyatt with the spy thriller "Londongrad" and now he's got another hot project that is sure to start a bidding war.
