Charlize Theron had long since earned an Academy Award (for 2003’s Monster) when she made 2015’s already legendary Mad Max: Fury Road. But with that six-time Oscar winner all but officially welcomed into the action-movie Valhalla that hosts other perennials of the genre like Die Hard and Raiders of the Lost Ark, it seems fair to say that Theron’s Imperator Furiosa will stand as an immortal cinematic icon.
But Theron’s career has been considerably more interesting than the previous paragraph implies. She’s balanced a healthy amount of silliness (A Million Ways to Die in the West, and let’s not forget her indescribable turn in the third season of Arrested Development) with the genre fare (The Devil’s Advocate, Hancock), and she can be a fiercely acidic actor, particularly with the right script (we know it’s a bit divisive, but Young Adult absolutely hinged on her fearless and wickedly funny performance).
So we figured, now that Theron is fresh off the triumph of Fury Road and just starred in the Snow White sequel, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, why not take a look at her filmography and see where it all lands on Netflix’s many international streaming queues. Fair warning though: Fury Road hasn’t made it to Netflix just yet (nor has the movie which featured her Oscar-winning turn, Monster), but we figure it’s a matter of time before it is ready to stream.
Charlize Theron will also find herself on Netflix next year, as she is slated to star in House of Cards creator David Fincher’s second Netflix original series Mindhunter. While you are waiting for Mindhunter alongside Fury Road and Monster to pop up on the streaming service, take a gander at what is available internationally for Charlize Theron on Netflix.

And the Winner Is…
Once again, Central and South America emerge triumphant, with Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico tying with 10 Charlize Theron movies. Strictly in terms of Netflix queues, the folks in these countries have it pretty well made, as this is not the first Netflix showdown they’ve won.
Showing up in dead last is Canada, offering a paltry 2 Charlize Theron movies, but they are the only country with Ridley Scott’s Prometheus available, if that’s important to you. Sooo, at least they’ve got that going for them.
Lastly, since Netflix has become available just about everywhere, we thought we’d throw in a few new countries to see how their queues are fairing. Spain had a decent showing with 6 Theron movies, narrowly edging out Japan’s 5, and Italy’s 4. Off to a good start, we’d say!
Stream Charlize Theron on Netflix From Anywhere
Now, we’re a little more reluctant than usual to advise this, because Netflix has been cracking down on VPN usage lately. Fortunately, the outcry against this crackdown has been loud and a petition to discontinue the ban has already collected over 36,000 signatures. Something tells us Netflix may change their minds soon enough, particularly if the ban inspires a wave of illegal torrenting.
So our point is this: use VPNs to location jump at your own risk, but it is the most effective way to experience the full breadth of what Netflix has to offer internationally.
For the uninitiated, here’s what you need to know about VPNs: they are an utterly necessary component of any good wireless network, for multiple reasons. The first of which is that VPNs protect your sensitive information. Any time you sign into a VPN, all of your network traffic and data is tunneled through encrypted servers set up all over the world. Doing so adds a thick level of security between hackers/snooping governments and your sensitive info like credit card numbers and emails.
The second reason, and the one that’s particularly applicable here, is that VPNs allow you to bypass geographical web restrictions. For instance, if you’re in the US, and you’re looking to stream, say, Young Adult, all you have to do is log into your VPN and pick an encrypted server from one of the countries where that movie is available on Netflix (like the UK or Ireland). Once you pick the server, you’re assigned an IP address in the country of your choosing, and now your Internet-capable devices think you’re in that country as well, and you can stream what you’d like. It’s that simple!
Best VPNs for Netflix Instant Location Changing
Just about any VPN on our official supported provider list will give you good access to Argentina, Colombia, or Mexico, but in the interest of narrowing things down a little further for you, here’s a list of some of the best VPNs for location jumping while streaming Charlize Theron movies:
- HideMyAss – Most IP Addresses in the Netflix countries listed.
- IPVanish – The only tier-1 only VPN service for premium performance and speeds.
- NordVPN – A server in each of these Netflix covered plus virtual US & UK servers for top speeds.
- Overplay – Includes TurboDNS and JetSwitch for quick and fast Netflix location jumping without potential VPN speed slowdown.
Best FlashRouters for Netflix Instant Streaming
Of course, making sure your network is ready for location-hopping and unlimited Netflix streaming takes more than the right VPN. You need a proper wireless network, and in that department, our DD-WRT and Tomato-flashed routers are more than able to provide.
By removing stock firmware from otherwise powerful devices and replacing it with open source firmwares like DD-WRT and Tomato, we allow routers to reach their full potential, opening all sorts of new capabilities. Access advanced security options, extend your wireless range, or even control how your bandwidth is allocated (which allows you to prioritize your Netflix streaming, if you so desire), all with a FlashRouter.
We’ll even make your VPN experience smoother. If you’re subscribed to any VPNs on our aforementioned supported provider list, we’ll save you the trouble (and believe us, it can be trouble) of installing the VPN software on your own. Let us handle that nuisance because you don’t want to end up bricking your new router.

Of course, there are many more FlashRouters that we’d love for you to see. Our recent best-sellers list is a good way to get to know some current faves, and our best of DD-WRT and Tomato lists ought to give you a good sense of the current cream of the crop.
