Is that who we think it is? Matthew McConaughey exchanged his beach body for a beer belly when he filmed scenes for his upcoming movie, Gold, this past week in New York City. As cameras rolled, the Oscar-winner showed off his new costume that consisted of a dad bod, gray suit and tropical printed tie. He completed the look with a brief case, cigarette and a pocket square. For those who went straight to the face, you may have likely noticed McConaughey's new hairstyle that featured a longer look in the back but a bit of balding on the top. Don't worry, ladies. Again, it's just for the new movie. Gold, which is set to hit theaters in 2016, tells the story of Kenny Wells (McConaughey) who »
'The Martian' with Matt Damon: Box office record? 'The Martian' fights 'Gravity' for October box office record; actual winner, however, is an Earthbound comedy Released by 20th Century Fox, Ridley Scott's extremely well-received The Martian, starring Matt Damon in the title role as a U.S. astronaut fighting for his life after being left behind all alone on Mars, opened with an estimated $18 million on Friday, Sept. 30, '15, at 3,831 North American theaters, about two thirds of which in 3D.

Sandra Bullock starred as the lost-in-space astronaut and middle-American Mom struggling to »

The first official image has been released from Gold, the upcoming movie from Traffic scribe Stephen Gaghan. As you can see, it features Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez in the sweaty setting of the Bre-x Mineral Corporation mining scandal. The movie revolves around a struggling businessman who teams up with a hapless geologist to find gold in the Indonesian jungle, and while this still doesn’t reveal much, it nicely sets the tone.
Gold is one of those movies which has been stuck in development hell for a while now, with director Michael Mann and writer Paul Haggis coming close to teaming up with Christian Bale for a version back in 2011. This current iteration was penned by Patrick Massett and John Zinman and is currently set to be released next Fall.

Time for a first look - just one photo via EW.com from the new film titled simply Gold, being directed by Stephen Gaghan. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez as an "unlikely pair" who team up when they find one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. The full cast includes Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bryce Dallas Howard, but none of them are seen in this shot. The photo is just Ramirez and McConaughey, face to face, in the jungle. We'll have to wait until a trailer debuts to get a better sense of where this is going, and if it turns out these guys are trying to save the jungle or profit from it. In the meantime, take a look below and stay tuned for more on this film from Black Bear Pictures/Hwy61. The description from EW.com says Gold »

The Forest in an intriguing supernatural thriller set in the legendary Aokigahara Forest of Japan - often referred to as the "Suicide Forest" as it is a place where people seem to congregate to kill themselves. According to wikipedia: "statistics vary, but what is documented is that during the period leading up to 1988, about 100 suicides occurred there every year."
A young American woman, Sara (played by Game of Thons' Natalie Dormer), goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,&rd [Continued ...] »
Is there a dad bod under there?! Matthew McConaughey dined with his wife, Camila Alves, at NYC's Bistro Milano restaurant on Wednesday, Sept. 30. And while we're sure he isn't boasting the soft "dad bod" of Internet fame, he was rocking quite the pops-friendly ensemble. Leaving the crisp tuxes he wears so well at home, McConaughey, 45, who is, in fact, a father of three, hit the pavement wearing a loose blue button-up shirt, teamed with belted khakis, chocolate Nike sneaks, striped socks, and a baseball hat. Keeping [...] »
The Weinstein Company has released a first look image from Gold, director Stephen Gaghan’s mining drama Gold, which features Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar) and Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil)…
“Gold is inspired by the thrilling true story of Walsh (McConaughey), a modern day prospector, hustler and dreamer, desperate for a lucky break. Left with few options, Walsh teams up with an equally luckless geologist to execute a grandiose, last ditch effort: find gold deep in the unchartered jungle of Indonesia. Together, they embark on an incredible rollercoaster ride, journeying from Walsh’s sleepy mining town to the mysterious rivers banks of Borneo to the high stakes boardrooms of Wall Street, and culminating in one of the most unexpected and scandalous frauds of our time.”

It’s kind of been a minute since we’ve heard from writer/director Stephen Gaghan. The filmmaker made his name as a screenwriter, rocketing into the scene in 2000 when he won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic.” He directed a film shortly thereafter (2002’s “Abandon”), but it wasn’t until 2006’s “Syriana,” nominated for two Oscars, with a Best Supporting Actor win for George Clooney, that Gaghan broke out as a writer/director that everyone was clamoring to work with. Several projects ensued, but none came to fruition; 2006 remains the last time Gaghan directed a feature-length movie (though two TV movies did come in the interim). So now he’s finally back with “Gold,” a drama about an unlikely pair who venture to the Indonesian jungle in search of gold. Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez star and EW has the first look.

Two films we’re looking forward to recently kicked off production and seemingly in an effort to combat low-quality unofficial set photos, they’ve already released their first images. First up, Syriana helmer Stephen Gaghan is finally back in the director’s chair with Gold. Led by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez, seen above (via EW), the story follows a geologist and prospector who venture into the Indonesian jungle where they start mining and a scandal erupts. Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Bruce Greenwood, and Toby Kebbell, The Weinstein Company will likely distribute it next fall.
Next up, Mel Gibson is also back in the director’s chair for the first time since 2006’s Apocalypto. Hacksaw Ridge is a World War II drama which features Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, “a medic and the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor after saving dozens »

"Yelp, but for people" sounds like a terrible idea, but when we did some research and read up on what the creators were doing… Nope. It still sounds like a terrible idea. Peeple, an app being developed by Nicole McCullough and Julia Cordray, is causing some big waves online, but not the chill, gentle waves that someone like Matthew McConaughey probably surfs. These waves are giant, relentless and made of liquid hot magma. It's basically a Yelp for humans, which means users can rate people like they do restaurants, businesses and schools. "Peeple is an app that allows you to rate and comment about the people you interact with in your daily lives on the following three »

Stay on the path! Gramercy Pictures has debuted a trailer for the supernatural horror thriller The Forest, starring Natalie Dormer as a young woman who goes searching for her twin sister in the mysterious Aokigahara Forest in Japan. There is another film about this same forest in Japan, titled The Sea of Trees with Matthew McConaughey from director Gus Van Sant, which tells a more dramatic tale. This is the more creepy, horrific one with ghosts and weird things happening to her. The cast includes Taylor Kinney, Eoin Macken and Yukiyoshi Ozawa. I'm not so sure about this, seems a bit wacky to me. Give it a look below. Here's the first official trailer for Jason Zada's The Forest, on MTV's YouTube (via The Playlist): A supernatural thriller set in the legendary Aokigahara Forest in Japan.

Japan’s notorious “suicide forest,” Aokigahara, which lies at the base of Mt. Fuji., has become quite the source of movie inspiration lately. Maybe Westerners are finally waking up to its existence. Earlier this year there was Gus Van Sant’s “Sea Of Trees,” starring Matthew McConaughey, which was based on that very subject — a man wanting to die within the borders of these legendary woods. But “Sea Of Trees” was possibly the worst reviewed film at Cannes this year — here’s our none too impressed review — so perhaps filmmakers have realized its time to take another kick at the can. That’s not entirely true though as, “The Forest,” the supernatural thriller starring Natalie Dormer (“Game Of Thrones,” and “The Hunger Games”) and Taylor Kinney, has been in the works for some time. Directed by Jason Zada and based on an original idea by David S. Goyer, principal photography began earlier this year. »

On Wednesday, Septmeber 30, Gramercy Pictures will release the first full-length trailer for their upcoming thriller The Forest, which arrives in theaters January 8, 2016. To get fans ready for that footage, Fandango has released a 15-second trailer preview, featuring Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer. Be sure to check back in just two short days for The Forest full-length trailer. This brief teaser gives you a tiny glimpse at this terrifying story.
The Forest, which is set in the Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, tells the story of a young American woman named Sara (Natalie Dormer) who goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared.  Despite everyone's warnings to "stay on the path," Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister's fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders into the forest. »
Little Accidents, 2014.
Directed by Sara Colangelo.
In a small American town still living in the shadow of a terrible coal mine accident, the disappearance of a teenage boy draws together a surviving miner, the lonely wife of a mine executive, and a local boy in a web of secrets.
As far as exceedingly downbeat suburban dramas go, Little Accidents feels particularly grim. Writer/director Sara Colangelo’s film, derived from her own 2010 short, is set in the wake of a tragic mining collapse in a sleepy American town, which has seen an inquiry launched to determine whether it was an accident or foul play – placing the one reluctant survivor, Amus, right at the centre of both the investigation and a town tearing itself apart with secrets and lies. Meanwhile, following an altercation in the woods fuelled by illicit alcohol, »

Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead (Douglas Tirola)
While the last few decades or so of National Lampoon’s output has been less than stellar, their influence through their humor magazine and films such as the original Vacation and Animal House can still be felt today. For those curious about the formation of the group and their rise to ubiquitous status, a new documentary looks to provide the behind-the-scenes story. »

When I'm out of town, mail tends to pile up, and when I get back, it's hard to sort the pile and figure out what to watch or read first. It was not difficult to figure out what to read first when I got back from Toronto, because one of the packages I had waiting for me contained "The Act Of Seeing," a new book curated by Nicolas Winding Refn and written by Alan Jones. That's all I knew about it before I sat down with it, but I immediately lost two full hours to just slowing paging through, taking in all the remarkable sleazy detail of each of the posters reproduced inside and getting lost in the crisp, engrossing text that Alan Jones has put together for each of the films. What posters? What films? When I got Refn on the phone to talk about the book, my first »
