Rebel Moon – Release Date, Cast, Plot, Director, And More Info

Leading the charge in “Rebel Moon” as Kora is Sofia Boutella, herself no stranger to playing in big-budget sandboxes after her roles in “Star Trek Beyond” and Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy.” That goes double for just about everyone else in the cast, beginning with Michiel Huisman (“Game of Thrones”) and Charlie Hunnam (“Pacific Rim”), who co-star as Gunnar and Kai (the Luke Skywalker and Han Solo to Boutella’s Kora). As for Snyder’s magnificent seven and friends, their ranks include Djimon Hounsou (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) as the former Imperium general Titus, Doona Bae (“Sense8”) as the sword-swinging cyborg Nemesis, Ray Fisher (“Justice League”) and Cleopatra Coleman (“Cobweb”) as the siblings Darrian and Devra Bloodaxe, Staz Nair (“Supergirl”) as the blacksmith Tarak, Anthony Hopkins as the voice of the aforementioned Jimmy, Jena Malone (“Sucker Punch”) as the spider-lady Harmada, and relative newcomer E. Duffy as the refugee Milius.

In the opposing corner, there’s Fra Fee (“Hawkeye”) as the Mother World’s sadistic ruler Regent Balisarius and Ed Skrein as the Imperium’s vicious leader, Admiral Atticus Noble. Skrein, in particular, has shown a knack for playing these sorts of diabolical types with his previous roles in “Deadpool” and “Battle Angel Alita” (although, if you want to see him play a truly deplorable character, you should check him out as the racist cop in “If Beale Street Could Talk”).
