Zoe Kravitz is officially our new Catwoman for the new Batman franchise. If that doesn't excite you, we're not sure what will. This beautiful and brilliant actress's most recent project was Big Little Lies, where she plays Bonnie Carlson. However, she does have 38 acting credits under her belt (she's also a stellar singer, we might add). This actress has already made waves in Hollywood, but we definitely expect to see more. In case you're wondering what films to watch in preparation for her role as Catwoman, we've made a list. Here are her 10 best films according to Rotten Tomatoes, ranked.
10 It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) - 57%
This teen romantic comedy is heartfelt, cringy, and hilarious. When a clinically depressed teenager checks himself into an adult psychiatric ward, he meets all kinds of different people, including a distant young woman. With Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Viola Davis, and the beautiful Zoe Kravitz, this is definitely a good flick to watch with your pals or your boo on a late Friday night. Zoe doesn't have a lead in this one, but we thought it was still worth mentioning.
9 Gemini (2017) - 70%
Lola Kirke plays a Hollywood starlet boss, and Zoe Kravitz plays her personal assistant. They relationship is tested when a heinous crime comes to light, and the assistant is trying to unravel the mystery. This movie is about friendship, truth, and the celebrity life, and is full of drama and suspense. This crime mystery is an interesting watch, and we know you want to see Zoe in a leading role on the big screen, right? Plus, this movie is pretty interesting and different, and a 70% on Rotten Tomatoes is nothing to sneer at.
8 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) - 74%
We probably don't have to explain this movie to you. This the first of the prequel series to the Harry Potter franchise, which follows Newt Scamander as he comes across a world of witches and wizards. Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, and many more, this film will definitely give you that Harry Potter feel you've been craving ever since the last one came out. Zoe Kravitz plays Lestrange, who is pretty caught up with Newt and his brother. She's brilliant and gorgeous in this film, and we suggest giving it a re-watch.
7 Good Kill (2014) - 75%
This drama war thriller stars Ethan Hawke, January Jones, and Zoe Kravitz. This movie follow a pilot as he fights the Taliban by remote control drone. However, this dangerous and unethical position leads him to have difficulties at home with his wife and his kids. He questions his job, his role, and whether or not he's helping anyone in his fight. This film is a heart-wrenching war flick with some different spins, and has the lovely Zoe Kravtiz as a member of the air force.
6 Pretend We're Kissing (2014) - 83%
This romantic comedy follows Benny - a socially awkward man who works at a poster shop. He wants change, and he wants to fall in love. Finally, he meets Jordan, a woman obsessed with fate and love. However, Benny has to start believing in it too, and get out of his own head. Oh yeah, and get past his female roommate with agoraphobia. This movie is quirky and hilarious, and is definitely a feel good for everyone who thinks that romantic comedies don't resemble real life. There's some sticky situations, and some clear roadblocks to overcome, and this is a cute and different movie to tune in to.
5 X-Men: First Class (2011) - 86%
We've probably all seen this film, too, but did you know that Zoe Kravitz is also in it? She plays Angel Salvadore, and acts as one of the mutants that Charles Xavier worked so hard to find and group together. We all know this film, and Zoe is stunning and brilliant. With James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Bacon, and many, many more, you have to give this film another look so you can recognize your next Catwoman. We also like to think this movie definitely helped prepare her for the task.
4 Dope (2015) - 88%
This comedy crime drama follows Malcolm, a geek trying to survive in a tough neighborhood. Finally, he gets invited to an underground party, and him and his friends embark on a wild Los Angeles adventure. All Malcolm wants is to be, well, dope, and this fun and quirky film about young men trying to make it in the world is definitely an underrated and worthy movie. Again, Zoe isn't a lead in this one, but it's still one of the best projects she's been apart of. We recommend giving this hidden gem a go.
3 The Lego Batman Movie (2017) - 89%
If you're unsure about this bombshell playing Catwoman, what if we told you she already had? That's right, Zoe Kravitz is the voice behind Catwoman in The Lego Batman Movie. We all loved The Lego Movie, so why not one specifically about Bruce Wayne? With celebrity voices including Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis, Conan O'Brien, and Catwoman herself, this movie is a classic, hilarious, and super entertaining animated family flick. You know it's your guilty pleasure, so you might as well go re-watch it.
2 Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - 97%
This film is a critically-acclaimed, Academy Award winning sci-fi thriller. If you haven't seen it, it takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where a woman decides to rebel against their tyrant of a ruler, and begins her search for her homeland. With the help of female prisoners, a psychotic worshiper, and a a drifter named Max, there's a bunch of chaos and action to go around. Tom Hardy is Max, Charlize Theron is the rebel, and Zoe Kravitz is one of the women prisoners. Spoiler: there's a lot of driving, but it's also a magnificent visual film, and it's pretty intense.
1 Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse (2018) - 97%
This is probably the best animated film we've seen in a long time. In fact, it even won Best Animated Feature Film at the 2019 Oscars, so, we're not even lying. This version of the Spidey-verse follows Miles Morales, who in becoming Spider-Man, realizes that there's actually a whole bunch of other Spider people from other dimensions. Zoe Kravitz is the voice of Mary Jane, but other voices include Shameik Moore (who is also in Dope), Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, and Nicolas Cage. Seriously, this movie is worth your time, even if you're not a superhero fan. We promise.
