Telluride — "Birdman" has arrived stateside and made as significant an impact as it did at the Venice Film Festival last week. You won't run into too many people who have managed to catch it at one of its packed screenings who weren't completely blown away by the accomplishment, and for director Alejandro González Iñárritu, it was clearly a much-needed exercise in self-reflection away from the somber fray of his filmography to date. From "Amores Perros" to "21 Grams," "Babel" to "Biutiful," González Iñárritu has marinated in heavy drama. And it's not that "Birdman" is without its own profound gravity — quite the opposite, in fact — but it gave him an opportunity to finally have fun and get outside his own head a bit, albeit through a film that very much exists as an exploration of his own midlife considerations. That made sitting down with him all the more enjoyable. Jet-lagged from Venice »

The veteran director is working on the promotional video for casino and resorts brand Melco-Crown Entertainment, reports Deadline.
The film will premiere at the opening of Melco-Crown's newest movie-themed resort Studio City in Macau in 2015.
De Niro and DiCaprio are frequent collaborators with Scorsese. Pitt was a producer on the director's The Departed.
The short film is being viewed as a potential warm-up for Scorsese and DiCaprio's Frank Sinatra project. »

Packer has become best buddies with filmmaker Brett Ratner, the pair are behind RatPac Entertainment which is slated to produce the effort.

The good news: Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro are teaming up to star in a new film from Martin Scorsese. The disappointing news: It’s for a short film promoting a casino. According to Deadline, RatPac Entertainment is producing a short film that will be used as a campaign for Melco-Crown Entertainment, a global resorts and casino brand. In addition to nabbing three movie stars and a legendary director, Terrence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street) will handle the script. The film will premiere next year at a new movie-themed resort in Studio City, Macau. I assume it will be about how casinos are awesome as opposed to Casino, which shows a glamorous world of delights masking a seedy, violent underbelly. Despite the short's purpose, I’ll still watch it if I get a chance. It’s too exciting to see this kind of talent align for any project. »

We better get used to seeing a little extra bling on that finger. Brad Pitt couldn't help but show off his new piece of jewelry while walking the streets of New York City Saturday afternoon. While carrying a folder filled with paper, the 50-year-old actor gave fans a clear view of his new wedding ring as he wore jeans, a V-neck shirt and a long-sleeve button down.

I’m seeing all these trade dispatches on a movie about The Ramones with Martin Scorsese, which came out of a Billboard story where the family mentioned various possible projects timed to the seminal punk band’s 40th anniversary. Here’s the truth: there is no script. Scorsese has an attachment, but he has also so many obligations, he might want to be sedated.
Scorsese is posting the pilot he directed for the HBO ’70s rock and roll series he’s doing with Mick Jagger and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter; he next directs Silence, an adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel that has taken Scorsese about two decades to finally get to, and is the kind of movie that takes a lot of time. He’s also going to direct the pilot for Ashecliffe, the Dennis Lehane-scripted series based on Shutter Island. Then there are many other projects he’s percolating, »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] And then there were only two. Day 8 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon takes us from "The Regina Monologues" to "The Italian Bob," or from early in Season 15 through to early in Season 17. Honestly, I think that some of these are mighty funny installments for a show that went past its 350th episode in this period, but there's no question that a fair amount of repetitiveness had set in here and an impressive number of plots feel either cribbed from earlier shows, or at least siblings to earlier plots. I mean... Homer gets an Rv again! Sideshow Bob tries to kill Bart a couple times! The Simpsons go to... Italy and England and China! Perhaps that's why we're now just down to me and Sepinwall and Katie Hasty giving recommendations. But don't worry, we offered five up good episodes and I added two episodes that you can skip, though I »

Recently taking stock of his career, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu began to wonder if he might have gotten stuck in a creative rut of his own making.
“It was like I was on a ladder, and I was getting a little too comfortable,” says the 51-year-old filmmaker as he holds out two clenched fists, miming the grip on that ladder. “I was just doing my work. It was a habit. I was stuck, half out of fear and half out of safety. And I said to myself, ‘I’m going to let go of the ladder.’ ”
For Inarritu, letting go meant taking a stab at his first full-fledged comedy, albeit one with a strong undercurrent of existential despair. In the director’s self-reflexive “Birdman,” Michael Keaton stars as an actor once famous for playing a superhero, now trying to save his »

Summer is coming to an end, which means there are only a handful of days left to wear white pants and strike up a romance with someone you don’t see a future with. If you managed to get away to the beach, congratulations! You certainly know how to take advantage of the extra daylight, but you’ll never have as much fun as these celebrities did.
Leonardo DiCaprio‘s lustrous man bun seemed to hit every exclusive beach on the map, while Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez’s European jaunt went on for so long we almost sent out a missing persons report. Summer love doesn’t always last, but at least it gives us wonderful shirtless horseback riding photos.
In order to make the most of the days we have left, we’re looking to those who gave us vacation envy in order to learn how to do better. »

This 2-year-old just dominated the Ice Bucket Challenge. Though it's not quite as cute, Leonardo DiCaprio's Ice Bucket Challenge is proof that the actor knows how to rock some serious scruff (and a man bun!). Who was the hottest guy at the Emmys? Well, if you ask almost every straight woman who was following along on Twitter, it was director and man-braid enthusiast Cary Joji Fukunaga. Speaking of the Emmys, if you thought the stars looked hot on the red carpet, wait until you see the behind-the-scenes snaps. This is what Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" sounds like on a recorder. (Spoiler: it's terrible.) This Parks and Recreation star put one seriously annoying Emmys seat-filler in his place and made us laugh in the process. Watch Matthew McConaughey's Emmy dreams break apart right before his eyes. The new music video for Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, and Jessie J's "Bang Bang" is here, »

Since Jared Leto didn’t walk the red carpet at Monday’s Emmys, another man’s locks had to be an object of obsession. Thank goodness True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga was on hand—and donning some excellent braids. Fukunaga won an award last night for directing the episode “Who Goes There,” but his hair emerged as the most talked about element of his appearance on the broadcast. Has the man bun given way to man braids?
The former has been around for longer than you think—The New York Times had a man bun trend piece back in »

The Als Ice Bucket Challenge continued sweeping Hollywood by storm this week, with stars like Jennifer Aniston getting her hair wet and Leo DiCaprio getting soaked all the way in Alberta, Canada. The charitable trend has provided a win-win situation for all of us for weeks now: we get to see soaked (and often shirtless) stars and models, and they get to pay it forward. Here's how it works: people are nominated by their friends to go through with the stunt and share the video proof on social media. If they don't follow through, they're encouraged to at least make a donation. In the process, everyone raises awareness and money for the Als Association to find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Als. Keep reading to see the best videos of stars getting drenched!

HBO and Paramount Television are teaming up to turn Martin Scorsese's 2010 film "Shutter Island," that starred Leonardo DiCaprio," into a TV series. The show is tentatively being called "Ashecliffe" and the plan is to bring back Scorsese to direct the pilot episode from a script by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the best-selling novel that the film as based on. Ashecliffe is the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place, and the series begins before the events of the film. The focus is the past of hospital, and the secrets and misdeeds perpetrated by its founders who erected the hospital in the early 20th Century and developed the methods of treatment use for the mentally ill. »
