From his ripped torso in Magic Mike to his skeletal frame in Dallas Buyers Club, Matthew McConaughey has undergone yet another body transformation for his next movie Gold. That, or his character from The Wolf of Wall Street ate too much cocaine.
The movie is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and is written by Patrick Massett & John Zinman (The Blacklist). It also stars Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man) and Toby Kebbell (Fantastic Four). The film will be released in 2016.

Matthew McConaughey is really committing to his new movie. Though it's not the first time he has completely transformed for a role (see: Dallas Buyers Club), he's never quite looked like this. The Oscar winner put on some weight, lost some hair, and got a new set of teeth (through the wonders of the hair and makeup department) to star in Gold, in which he plays a man who goes to the Indonesian jungle in search of, you guessed it, gold. The story is loosely based on the Bre-x mining scandal of 1993. Bryce Dallas Howard and Édgar Ramírez are also on the set, though they don't look nearly as crazy as McConaughey. »

Bald, pot-bellied and sporting a suit that would make a Savile Row tailor cry, this is Mm as you've never seen him before.
He's previously lost a lot of weight for Dallas Buyers Club, but this is something quite different.
Gold In Manhattan is set for release at some point in »

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 »

Any McConaughey is good McConaughey and if you thought his treasure hunting days were over, we have a new picture courtesy of Entertainment Weekly that proves otherwise.

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 »

Today the first photo has been released from the project, once marked as a Michael Mann/Christian Bale vehicle, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez and has been penned by Patrick Massett and John Zinman.
The true story tale deals with the Bre-x Mineral Corporation mining scandal and follows a struggling businessman who teams up with a hapless geologist to find gold in the Indonesian jungle. The film is targeting a Fall 2016 release.

The latest Point Break trailer makes it clear that the new cast and crew are not just trying to remake the early 90s surfers and robbers movie. They’re trying to up the ante. More stunts, bigger thrills, and an even thicker plot line look to come with this updated version.
What seemed at first to be a laughable remake project is shaping up to be a better-than-average action film. When the project was announced last year, many industry observers scratched their collective heads. How is it a film that made less than $100M globally and finished #29 of top grossing films for 1991 becomes the basis for a high budget reboot/remake? The original film was essentially an empty box action film designed as a vehicle for two rising stars in Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. The film has easily picked up more audience from late night cable syndication runs than »

Today we have a new trailer for the upcoming "Point Break" remake, starring Edgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum) as Bodhi (played by Patrick Swayze in the original) and Luke Bracey (GI Joe: Retaliation) as Johnny Utah (played by Keanu Reeves in the original). Check it out below. Plot: A young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string of staggering crimes that kill innocent people and send the world's economy into a tailspin. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the callous architects of these inconceivable crimes. The new movie is directed by Ericson Core (Invincible) from a script by Kurt Wimmer (Law Abiding Citizen). It co-stars Ray Winston (playing Gary Busey's role from the original) and is set to hit theaters on December 25th. »
"...the film follows four generations of 'Joy Mangano', a single mother of three children, as she builds her business empire after creating the 'Miracle Mop'..."

"What are you doing here, Utah?" Warner Bros has debuted another new trailer for Ericson Core's remake of Point Break, the extreme action heist movie from years ago starring Keanu Reeves. Don't worry, this doesn't look any better than it did in the first trailer did, and we highly recommend ignoring this and just renting/rewatching the original Point Break multiple times instead. In the new one, Luke Bracey stars as Johnny Utah, recruited by the FBI to infiltrate and expose a team of criminal extreme sports junkies. The cast includes Teresa Palmer, Ray Winstone, Édgar Ramírez & Clemens Schick. Watch out for this. Here's the new trailer (+ poster) for Ericson Core's Point Break, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube: In this fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller Point Break, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez »

A new trailer for the Point Break remake has been delivered. This one provides an extended look at the upcoming movie, though I’m still not convinced. The film will open this Christmas in the Us, and the UK shortly afterwards.
The new trailer is slightly better than the last one that we saw, and we get a good look at Ray Winstone’s character and the new ‘dead presidents’ masks, as well as the high-octane stunts.
Here’s the plot.
In the fast-paced, high-adrenaline “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Édgar Ramírez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways. »

We’re still not detecting, between you and us, a fat lot of enthusiasm for the upcoming Point Break remake. Given how strong and loved the first film is, that’s hardly a surprise. That said, Warner Bros is pressing ahead with the new take, and not being shy about it. It arrives in cinemas at the end of the year.
A brand new trailer for the new Point Break landed overnight, in an attempt to win a few more people over. Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez and Ray Winstone star in this one, with a bit of the mighty Delroy Lindo thrown in for good measure. Ericson Core is directing.
Here’s the new trailer for the movie. Has this one won you over?

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for its reboot of “Point Break,” highlighting extreme sports such as surfing massive waves — plus millions of stolen dollars tossed out of an airplane into a poor village.
The trailer shows the new version of FBI agent Johnny Utah, played by Luke Bracey in the Keanu Reeves part, coming to the realization that the robbers are committing the crimes in order to honor the forces of nature. The first trailer for the reboot hit the web in May.
Alcon Entertainment began developing the project in 2011, when it acquired rights to the 1991 film property with plans to set the reboot in the world of extreme sports.
“Point Break” opens on Christmas Day, which will »
