Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to star in The Crowded Tale, the story of Billy Milligan, the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense in a court of law.

The film is an adaptation of Daniel Keyes' nonfiction "The Minds of Billy Milligan, which tells the story of Milligan and his 24 personalities as well as his court trial in the late 1970s in Ohio after being charged with robbery and raping three women on the Ohio State University campus. amz asin="0553263811" size="small"In preparation for his defense he was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder and would later become »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. »

With the 2015 Oscars almost here, Moviefone will be releasing a set of staff predictions each day this week (in countdown fashion) for the four major categories. We kicked it off yesterday with Best Actress, and now turn our attention to a hotly-contested race: Best Actor.
We've already given you the beat on the 2015 Oscars race, so now let's break down our favorites to win the award. Here, we've listed the actors we expect to win, and then, more importantly, who we think should win.
Who Will Win: Eddie Redmayne. The actor's transformative performance as physics genius Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything" is, perhaps, the most talked about of the year, and it's already earned him a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award. The only person who could possibly upset the race at this point is Bradley Cooper, whose performance in "American Sniper" has been celebrated »

John Davis has set up a new Shaft movie at New Line. A lot of the tropes of 70s blaxploitation movies are quite embarrassing, and more risible than ever after films like Black Dynamite, Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood and Hollywood Shuffle, but there’s no reason for a new Shaft to keep any kitsch trappings.
In their story, The Wrap are calling the new picture a reboot rather than a remake, which is fair enough as the last sort-of remake of Shaft was actually a sequel: Samuel L. Jackson’s Shaft was the nephew of Richard Roundtree’s original. That might be the case this time, or maybe not. Heck, they might even be planning a period movie for all we know.

We weren't kidding back in December when we wrote about how this year's Best Actor pool may have been the greatest ever. Two months later, and we seemingly have the tightest race in this category in at least 12 years. And let's put an emphasis on "seemingly." From a pundit, industry and Oscar fan perspective, it appears as though three of the five nominees have a legitimate shot to celebrate on Oscar Sunday. First up is "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne. The 33-year-old Brit has already won a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and, as expected, the BAFTA Award in this category for his incredible portrayal of Stephen Hawking in the popular biopic. Redmayne's main competition for most of awards season has been "Birdman's" Michael Keaton. The veteran actor was the apple of critics groups' eyes, earning honors from the National Board of Review and, by our count, »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...
It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.
This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
This Sunday, over 3,000 dolled-up guests will traverse 500 feet of red carpet on their path into the 87th Annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre (where it’ll be hosted for the 14th time). But before they reach for that first glass of Piper-Heidsieck brut during the ritzy Oscar cocktail hour, a series of events, benefits, award shows and gifting suites will properly launch the festivities. Here’s where the industry’s brightest will be primping, prepping, donating and gallivanting in the days leading up to Hollywood’s biggest night.

Think that winning an Academy Award provides an actor with a surefire path to unlimited great roles? Think again. Oscars history is filled with stars who've taken home a gold statue only to see all their hard work undone in seconds with a stinker of a follow-up movie.
Digital Spy takes a look at 10 of these instances below...
A piercing performance in Monster's Ball won Halle Berry an Oscar in 2002, but a rocky road lied ahead. She followed it up with disastrous Bond movie Die Another Day, hardly any screen time in X-Men 2 and turgid horror Gothika. Oh, and Catwoman... how could we forget Catwoman (believe us, we've tried)?

The 2014 Annie remake movie starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz will make its home video debut March 10 with an early release of the film on Digital HD. The Blu-ray and DVD versions arrive a week later on March 17 including a Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD combo pack.
Annie was an unfortunate victim of highly publicized hack of Sony Pictures in November, 2014, which resulted in numerous as-of-yet released films leaking onto the Internet, including Annie. Despite the leak, Annie still managed to accumulate $121.9 million worldwide over the Christmas break at the holiday box office, the majority of which came from North America.
The Annie remake Blu-ray combo pack comes with a wide selection of bonus features and the majority of which are exclusive to Blu-ray. Only the first three listed below will also be available on the Annie remake DVD.

Fanboys and -girls around the globe are no doubt still celebrating last night's surprising announcement that Sony and Marvel would partner to produce new Spider-Man films, and integrate the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what does that mean for what was to be Sony's first "Amazing Spider-Man" spinoff, "Sinister Six"?
According to the Wall Street Journal, "Sinister Six" will remain in development at Sony, but it's been delayed indefinitely. WSJ writes that the studio is "rethinking" its plan for the flick, and it has been pulled from its initial release date of November 11, 2016.
While that's never a good sign for a movie, WSJ's report indicates that Sony still wants to move forward with the film, and so far, Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods") is still on board to write and direct. Still, not knowing when the movie may come out may cause some of "Sinister"'s high-profile »

Nobody puts Paul McCartney in a corner. At Sunday night's Grammys, Paul stood up to rock out during Elo's performance of "Evil Woman," clapping and singing along. Soon, though, he seemed to notice that the camera was capturing his solo dance party, and he threw up his hands before quickly sitting down. Did he suddenly feel shy? What happened? In any case, Paul had a great night, hitting the stage with Kanye West and Rihanna for their new hit "FourFiveSeconds" and later posing with Jamie Foxx's adorable daughter. Go inside the show with these can't-miss Grammys moments that weren't on TV, then let's relive Paul's glorious Grammys moment in GIFs and pictures, shall we? »
