Written and Directed by Paul Feig.
A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.
Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »

In a mansion-sized tent at the Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc outside Cannes, Tom Ford and Eva Longoria were trying to sell a collection of dresses to the highest bidder. The garments up for grabs at the Thursday night’s amfAR Cinema Against AIDS auction had just been showcased in a fashion show on steroids, which featured 40 models strutting up and down the runway and then returning onstage for an impromptu dance. The crowd of A-list celebrities, oligarchs and other rich-and-famous were impressed.
But nobody seemed to love the spectacle more than “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke, 38, who sat a table close to the action. He kept standing up, sitting down, standing up and clapping, like he was cheering on his favorite sports team. His date, 20-year-old April Love Geary (also a model), didn’t seem to mind.
This annual amfAR event feels like the Golden Globes (or the Met Gala) of France. »

Some of these may also have previously been on Netflix, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.Orange Is the New Black (season 3) (available June 12) The ladies of Litchfield return for a third season full of naked catfights, lesbian sex, and even more award-winning drama.

The Aviator (2004) The second in Martin Scorsese's long and fruitful pairing with Leonardo DiCaprio finds Leo inhabiting the persona of eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, who romanced starlets, designed planes, and produced some of Hollywood's earliest blockbusters before transforming into an obsessive-compulsive »

The final episode of Late Show With David Letterman aired Wednesday night. Throughout David's esteemed 33 years on late-night television, he has seen numerous guests and musical acts. It is amazing to see some of today's stars appear on his show when they were in the early stages of their careers, from a baby-faced Justin Bieber to teenage Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio. »
No Leo, no bra, no problem! German supermodel Toni Garrn took a daring risk in a sheer jumpsuit on Wednesday, May 20, at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France. The black jumpsuit had vertical black stripes and a deep V-neck. Garrn, 22, wore a bright white thong and skipped a bra, accessorizing the look with just a gold clutch. The bright lights of the photographers’ cameras captured Garrn’s unmentionables as she exited the Hotel Martinez following an afterparty at the film festival. Leonardo DiCaprio and Garrn split in [...] »
Leonardo DiCaprio is a regular in the South of France during the Cannes Film Festival, and this year is no different. On Monday, he made headlines when he outbid Paris Hilton for a Chanel purse during an auction at the Heart Fund's Generous People Dinner Gala. The next day, Leo met up with a group of friends, including Juliette Lewis, to relax on David Geffen's luxury yacht, Rising Sun. Leo also got a visit on deck from another female friend, though there were far less women on board than there were in 2013, when he entertained at least six ladies in the sun. He made up for it on Wednesday night when he and Robin Thicke were surrounded by women at the Gotha nightclub. Take a look at Leo's latest Cannes visit and then see how he and his former girlfriend Toni Garrn lived it up during the festival last year. »
The 22-year-old supermodel was at the De Grisogono bash at the Hotel du Cap with her new girlfriend, St Vincent, 32, but as soon as Cara heard her ‘Fast and Furious’ star ex – who she broke up with after six months together in June 2014 – had arrived, she made a swift exit, telling friends, “I can’t face seeing her”.
Sources said: “Cara and Michelle haven’t spoken since the split and they aren’t friends anymore. Cara was with her new girlfriend and she couldn’t face any kind of awkward confrontation.
“As soon as they heard Michelle had arrived they left. Cara was telling her pals she just didn’t want the hassle. She left the bash at about 1am and headed back to her hotel. Very tame behaviour.”
Leonardo DiCaprio was also at the party, »

Leonardo DiCaprio is a mama's boy! The Oscar nominee dropped more than $13,000 on a Chanel purse for his mom while attending the Heart Fund Gala in Cannes. A blue Neoprene flap bag with embroidered flowers, the purse was sold as part of an auction to benefit the charity. Leo told reporters that he purchased the accessory for his mom. Cue the awwws. But the Inception star, 40, didn't win it too easily. He was in a bidding war against Paris Hilton, 34, who was just as anxious to take home the bag as he was. Even though she didn't win the coveted bag, she didn't play the role of a sore loser. A source told People that both she and Leo were enthusiastic members of the auction all night »
Leonardo DiCaprio got into a bidding war with Paris Hilton for a designer handbag last night (18.05.15). The 'Wolf of Wall Street' star, who is rumoured to be secretly dating Rihanna, reportedly outbid the 34-year-old DJ and secured a blue Chanel Neoprene flap bag embroidered with flowers for €10,000 at the the Heart Fund Gala at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes, France. The 40-year-old star ''bought the bag for his mom,'' Irmelin Indenbirken, after fending off stiff competition from the former reality TV star and two other bidders, according to the New York Post's Page Six. Another insider told People.com: ''Paris was great. She bid on many things, and Leo did too. Both her and Leo were so active during the entire auction. It was really nice to see.'' However, the Oscar-nominee lost out on on two other lots at the auction, including a vacation at one of the luxurious Nikki Beach resorts worldwide. »

David Letterman is going out with a bang, getting heartfelt and funny farewell visits from the likes of Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, and more stars this week. As we prepare for the end of Dave's 22-year run as host of the Late Show on Wednesday, we can't help but look back at some of his cutest interviews, including his chat with a 19-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio in 1995. Back when Leo was promoting The Basketball Diaries two decades ago, he was a boyish actor on the rise with a bowl-cut. Not only does his appearance remind us of all the reasons we fell in love with Leo - those eyes! - but it also captures Dave's unpredictable style. Case in point: when he randomly asks Leo if he wants a steak dinner or somehow makes bowling shoes sound naughty. Get nostalgic when you watch Leo's first visit on the Late Show above, »
John Oliver has been building momentum for Last Week Tonight by exposing the hypocrisy with which America treats its most beloved institutions. A week after his Mother's Day diatribe against the nation's appalling family leave policies, Oliver took on the poultry industry's exploitation of the farmers that raise the nation's favorite meat.
As a National Poultry Council Board Member boasts, the industry currently produces about 160 million chickens a week. "160 million chicks a week! Those are Warren Beatty numbers!" Oliver exclaims. "Those are Rob Lowe at the St. Elmo's Fire premiere numbers. »
For a while now, talk has been burbling about Martin Scorsese doing something with Kenneth Branagh's immersive stage production of "Macbeth," that takes place inches away from the faces of the audience (at least those in the first few rows). It hasn't been clear what Scorsese and Branagh would do or if it would even happen, but it seems something is percolating and it won't be quite as cinematic as you might've hoped. Read More: Leonardo DiCaprio Talks His Work With Martin Scorsese, Says He Wants More Movies Like 'Wolf Of Wall Street' & More The Telegraph reports that the "Macbeth" project will actually be more like a documentary, with Scorsese tracking Branagh and his team as they perform Shakespeare's work at the Second World War Leavesden Aerodrome. Branagh will reprise the title role, with other cast members to be determined, though the actor is hoping to reunite many of »

Two years after Ashton Kutcher's Jobs was released, a trailer for Steve Jobs, the next film about the late Apple founder, has been unveiled. This time, Michael Fassbender is playing the tech legend. There isn't a ton of footage in this first teaser, but we do get to see Fassbender as Jobs. He basically looks like Michael Fassbender, just with glasses and a black turtleneck. So much for an epic transformation. We also get glimpses of costars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels. I'm curious to see more of the film, directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, which will follow Jobs through various stages of his career. The movie will be released on Oct. 9. Stay tuned for a full trailer, and while you're watching the teaser, below, try to picture Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, or any of the other actors who were rumored for the »

Dashing, refined and articulate, 26-year-old French actor Pierre Niney gained mainstream popularity in France with EuropaCorp romantic laugher “It Boy,” and broke out last year on a larger stage in Jalil Lespert’s “Yves Saint Laurent.” His performance as the famed fashion designer earned him a Cesar award for best actor.
Niney trained at the prestigious Comedie-Francaise, and started his acting career in theater, but he has a soft spot for silent film comedy. “I grew up watching Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton,” he says. “When preparing a role, I work first on the body language and physical aspects of the performance; the psychological dimension comes naturally, once I’m in character.”
Niney wowed the crowd with his versatility at the recent Colcoa fest celebrating French films in L.A., playing a troubled writer in Yann Gozlan’s Alfred Hitchcock-influenced thriller “A Perfect Man” (which »

Best Actor could once again (as it almost always is these days) be an ultra-competitive race full of some of major A-listers. Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender (with three juicy roles), Jake Gyllenhaal (with two) and Don Cheadle -- all of whom have never won -- have films coming out this year that scream Oscar (at least on paper) and all of them are due. They might have to compete against someone who is definitely not due, though, as Eddie Redmayne could be in the running again for his role as a transgender artist in Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl." Could Eddie Redmayne be the next Tom Hanks or Spencer Tracy, winning back to back Oscars? Check out predictions in other categories here. Strong Contenders (At Least On Paper): Don Cheadle, "Miles Ahead" Leonardo DiCaprio, "The Revenant" Michael Fassbender, "Steve Jobs" Jake Gyllenhaal, "Demolition" Matthew McConaughey, "The Sea of Trees" Eddie Redmayne, »

Frieze New York is a very serious art fair, where the top dealers in the world sell late-model masterworks by the greatest artists of our time, and where the VIP preview (on May 13) attracts the most discerning collectors, curators, and aesthetic thought leaders, where...—oh my God, is that ... you know she was in that movie — she's over there, in that dress? Isn't that the guy who had Koolhaas build a personal art museum in Manila? Did you pose for the Times "Styles" section reporter? How long is the line to get a Pia Camil art-cloak?

Okay, so, while there's a lot of buying and selling and advising going on, sometimes the first day of Frieze can be a veritable collector-class catwalk. So we sent our roving »
