For many people, a new year means a time for new habits, resolutions, and fresh starts. For myself though, it’s always been about one thing and one thing only: 365 days of brand-new films!
And of course, Hollywood being Hollywood, there’s the usual litany of sequels, super-hero spectacle, remakes, and state-of-the-art Hollywood summer craziness filled with all manner of digital monsters and explosions. But there’s also new films from Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, and - most intriguing of all - a ballet thriller from Darren Aronofsky. Come on, admit it - you know you got excited when you heard the words “ballet thriller!” All that, and we also see the return of Michael Douglas in his seminal role as Gordon Gecko.
Read on after the jump for my list of the ten films that - for reasons both good and bad - I’m most looking forward to seeing in the new year. »

So the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception recently appeared online, but I’m still hearing some people say that if the trailer wasn’t stamped with “from the director of The Dark Knight” they would have little motivation to actually care about the movie.
Now granted, Inception has maintained an air of almost total mystery every since we first learned of its existence, but with the clues that have been carefully sprinkled here and there, we here at Screen Rant think there’s enough potential for this to be a breakout film in 2010. We’ll explain why, with some hi-res photos helping to paint the picture (click on any still image below for a hi-res version).
So let’s take a crack at the most obvious question – What is Inception all about?
In past coverage of the movie, we’ve learned that Leonardo DiCaprio stars as “a CEO »

We had “Inception” originally pegged as a sci-fi film, but let’s face it, this thing isn’t really all that sci-fi. So, we’re going to start covering it on BeyondHollywood.com more often now as a result. The latest — a brand spanking new trailer for “Inception”, which reveals more of a plot, complete with voiceover narration by Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a high-tech thief named Cobb in the movie. He’s joined by Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine, and Lukas Haas. “Inception” tantalizes July 16, 2010. And here’s a fresh poster from the movie released a week or so ago. Looks like Warner Bros. is trying to ape the success of Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” by way of posters. »
The film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine, and Lukas Haas, is said to be a thriller which takes place inside someone's mind and that mind is pretty twisted to be coming up with some of these images. I'm still not sure what to make of this story but I'm more than happy to keep watching these trailers until the movie comes out. At this rate, I doubt anyone will know what the thing's about even after seeing it once never mind trying to piece things together from the bits they're giving us.

The Inception trailer that created a crime scene in my mind is now online in English after being released last week in French. So what is the plot of Inception? Damned if I know. Who are the characters? No clue. If I go through frame-by-frame, can I gleam a better understanding? Not really, although I can spot Cillian Murphy and Lukas Haas.
Again, good job Warners on trying to intrigue its audience rather than spill everything seven months ahead of the film’s release date. Inception hits theaters on July 16, 2010.

Up until now, we hadn’t seen much on the movie since August when we got a look at the Inception teaser trailer. The teaser didn’t show much other a few intense Leonardo DiCaprio shots and a few strange visuals. The notable part of the teaser was the brief look at a Matrix-style hallway fight sequence which looked pretty cool but there was little revealed in the video.
The long-awaited full trailer for Inception comes out this week attached to Sherlock Holmes and here finally is a full trailer for the film. There is no lack of intensity and it reveals more of the story than the teaser. We had the international trailer here briefly until the studio asked us to remove it, »

I'm half asleep so I'll keep this brief. I remember a story a friend told me about walking through the city after dropping a few tabs and waching the buildings lean over. Intrigued? Whatch the trailer!
A thriller set within the architecture of the mind about a CEO who is involved in a blackmailing scandal.
Also, check out this cast for Christopher Nolan's fifth effort: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine, Lukas Haas. Bring it!

France's first lady has agreed to be in a Woody Allen film. She's such an obvious choice, we should have predicted it
Why on earth didn't we predict it long ago? France's first lady, Carla Bruni, has revealed that Woody Allen has asked her to be in one of his films, despite her complete lack of acting experience. And she has said yes.
Bruni – of course! She is a quintessential Minor Woody Allen Character: sexy, wealthy, European in that luxury-hotel sense that he adores, liberated in a pre-feminist sort of way, with creative aspirations that are preposterous but which powerful, besotted men might well indulge in the hope of getting inside her exquisitely tailored culottes.
Bruni is the classic unattainable woman from a golden-age Woody Allen picture: the sort who might get a party-scene cameo, towering sexily over him while giving her deadpan opinions on literary or artistic topics – opinions with which he, »

Leonardo DiCaprio turns 35 today and to celebrate the milestone we put together this slideshow of some of Leo's biggest moments! He's been in show business for almost 20 years and has grown up so much along the way. From his best friends like Tobey Maguire, Lukas Haas and Kevin Connelly to his bikini-loving model girlfriends like Gisele Bundchen and Bar Refaeli, Leonardo has gone from heartthrob to leading man. He's still the star of the highest grossing movie of all time, Titanic, but he also makes time for his passions in life, like the environment as well as the most important people, like his mom. Happy B-day, Leo! View Slideshow › »

The upcoming fifth film from perfectionist director Terrence Malick has been pushed back to an undertermined release date in 2010. Tree Of Life stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn in a heartfelt story about the loss of a son's innocence and the struggle to come to grips with it into adulthood. Other than that, details on the film have remained a mystery, as the director has managed to keep a tight lid on the whole thing. Already, Malick has been in the editing room for nearly a year.
The information was released by new distributor Apparition, whose new head Bob Berny said, "It's definitely not going to come out this year... I can't tell you when it will come out."
Leonardo DiCaprio took a break from filming Inception to hit the Abbot Kinney street fair in La yesterday afternoon. He had his hands full toting around his doggy, and Leo was also joined by Bff Lukas Haas. Leo's back in California after his Summer of traveling and flirting around Europe, and now he's able to enjoy the comforts of home without commuting too far for work. View 3 Photos › »
Is it just me or is it hard to picture these two acting together onscreen? What is it about Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page that give me that ole' oil and water feeling? They seem to be kindred spirits of drably dressed boredom in this photo so perhaps I'm wrong. Speculate with me in the comments...

The movie in question is Inception, due for a teaser trailer any second now, which is Christopher Nolan's sci-fi follow up to The Dark Knight. For all I know -- the plot is closely guarded -- they're playing brother and sister. Unlike James Cameron, who seemed spooked after Titanic, Nolan is just getting back to work. That's always the best move when you've just made a game changer. Get your follow up out of the way and bring your career back down to earth... even if you're still »

I hate going on the IMDb message boards because I always seem to get sucked into flame wars, but the good folks over at Slashfilm have waded through the mud to find some terrific -- if not exactly confirmed -- info about Inception, Christopher Nolan's ultra-secret follow-up to The Dark Knight that stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Lukas Haas, and Ken Watanabe. So file these under "rumors" for now... And IMDb user named "WiiMovies" has posted a full breakdown of the Inception teaser that's supposed to come out attached to Inglourious »

Leonardo DiCaprio continued the good times in Ibiza yesterday, hitting the beach alongside Lukas Haas and other friends. While Leo has many new projects in the works, he's currently all about enjoying some R&R with his bikini-clad model companions. His abs are becoming a usual sight, and his fine form has brought him into the second round of our Hottest Shirtless Guy contest. He's now facing stiff competition in Ryan Phillippe, so make sure to cast your votes for Leo if you want him to stay in the race. View 10 Photos › To see more of shirtless Leo, just read more.

Buckets of blood, violence, foul language and mother-lovin' Danny Trejo aside, "Machete" boasts some serious assets in the form of its impressive ensemble cast. Some of the actors lining up for the Robert Rodriguez-produced "Grindhouse" spin-off include Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal. Seriously -- Steven Seagal! The same martial arts genius that brought you "Above the Law," "Hard to Kill" and my personal favorite, "Under Siege 2: Dark Territory"! Not to mention this little gem...
Assuming that all goes as it should, "Machete" is in a position to become one of the most enjoyable ensemble films of all time. The giddier I get about the news, the more and more I think about other classic ensemble movies that "Machete" will one day measure up to. For your reading pleasure, here are five slices from the never-ending ensemble movie pie.

During World War II, a Jewish woman (Jacqueline Bisset) saves her life thanks to a love affair with a doctor in charge of human experiments in a Nazi concentration camp. The woman then marries and moves to New York, where she raises two emotionally stunted sons. The eldest son (Josh Lucas) battles his sense of disconnection from life while working at a scam modeling agency, where he befriends a charming young co-worker (Adam Brody) who begins to restore in him a sense of excitement and purpose. The neurotic younger son (Lukas Haas) is locked in a compulsive, co-dependent relationship with his mother. This is Death in Love, Boaz Yakin's latest film, a stirring family drama that will both shock and surprise you. We recently met up with actor Adam Brody to talk about the meaning behind the film's rough imagery. To watch our exclusive video interview, click on the »
Holocaust porn in the tradition of "The Reader," Boaz Yakin's ultra-pretentious and loathsome "Death in Love" opens by cutting between sex and stomach-churning footage of concentration camp experiments.
A young Jewish teenager who grows to be Jacqueline Bisset saves her own life by giving herself to a doctor conducting these atrocities. Her two grown sons pay for this decades later.

Chicago – How does a show about the “next big thing” in Hollywood age? Do we really want to see the boys of “Entourage” grow up? The first two seasons of Creator Doug Ellin’s incredibly clever show crackled with wit rarely seen on television and stood with the best comedies. But season five, now on DVD, shows a series with a slight identity crisis, a comedy that is still entertaining but missing the spark that once defined it.
DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0 If there was a “jump the shark” moment for “Entourage” it was, ironically, the same disastrous event in the fictional career of Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) - the fictional epic “Medellin”. The writers and producers spent so much time on the project that they lost a lot of the creative energy from the first two seasons in the story of an ambitious film gone disastrously wrong.
