Jessica Chastain’s upcoming movie The Huntsman: Winter’s War hit theaters today, April 22. And, judging by the movie’s trailers, we believe Jessica Chastain is getting back into action with this fiction thriller. The Huntsman: Winter’s War is promising to be the best action movie out of all the Jessica Chastain movies so far. Starring opposite action stars like Thor actor Chris Hemsworth and Mad Max: Fury Road star Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain’s “hot” image is soon changing to “fierce.”
The Academy Award-winner recently promoted her new movie on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and while promoting The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Jessica Chastain and Jimmy Kimmel played a game in the show’s segment of “Who’s High On Hollywood Blvd.?” Chastin was totally in with Kimmel celebrating April 20, a day observed by many as a day to smoke marijuana. As the 39-year-old actress will be seen in action in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which is out today, these five movies will show why Jessica Chastain is different in every movie she does.

In the Christopher Nolan blockbuster, Jessica Chastain played the adult daughter Murphy “Murph” Cooper of astronaut Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), who’s lost in space and time travel. The gripping and confusing premise has Chastin playing the daughter who tries desperately to get her father back to earth.
This is one of the best horror flicks of last decade and it stars Chastin as Annabel, the live-in girlfriend of Lucas Desange (Nickolaj Coster-Waldau). As two distraught and scared girls come in Annabel’s life, they come with a ghost they call “Mama.”
The Martian (2015)
Starring opposite Matt Damon in the award-winning movie is a credit itself. But, Chastin’s acting in the movie really boosts how she brings calmness to characters that are in intense situations. She plays Melissa, a geologist who wants to help Mark Watney (Damon) get out of Mars alive.
