Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" may have missed out at the Oscars, but it has earned a different kind of honor this year - it was the most pirated movie of 2014. Both the Leonardo DiCaprio-led film and Disney’s animated smash "Frozen" topped this year's list with each title downloaded about 30 million times by torrent users worldwide in 2014.
Piracy-tracking firm Excipio revealed the full list which understandably deals with films that have been released on home video during the calendar year and ripped to the internet (films recorded with a camera inside a cinema rarely pull in big numbers). As a result the list mostly consist of films which scored a theatrical release in the last third of 2013 and the first two-thirds of 2014.
There were two surprises on the list - the remake of "RoboCop" fared surprisingly better than either "Gravity," the "Hobbit" sequel and three »

Miley Cyrus has fired another breast photo at Instagram in a continuing protest over the social media site’s ban on nudity, which pulled down the photo almost as soon as it was posted, but did not suspend Miley’s account. Cyrus and celebrities like Lena Dunham, Rihanna and Scout Willis have all protested in support of “Free The Nipple,” a grass-roots movement to promote laws allowing women to show their breasts in public. You may recall, Scout, the 22-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, was photographed in May walking down a New York City street topless. Models Soko, Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne, Dree Hemingway and Kendall Jenner are also advocates along with with actors Adrian Grenier, Kellan Lutz and music mogul Russell Simmons. ...Read More »
Kellan Lutz's new girlfriend has posed nude for Playboy. Brittny Ward, who started dating the 'Twilight Saga' star in October, has been named the Miss January 2015 Playmate by the magazine and says she hopes to have ''great sex'' throughout next year. The 24-year-old beauty claims she felt like Angelina Jolie during the risky photo-shoot, explaining: ''I felt very badass when shooting this pictorial--a bit like, say Angelina Jolie. I felt like a hyper confident, kick** woman.'' Asked if she has a mantra, she said: ''Have fun. Regret nothing, and don't let people judge or bring you down.'' Meanwhile, Brittny claims she recently ''turned to the dark side'' after originally starting out as a beauty queen 12 years ago. She said: ''I'm so different from when I was in the pageants, putting on that smile. Now I'm into trying things that scare me, like skydiving and playing with wild animals. »
Kellan Lutz is obviously a fan of girlfriend Brittny Ward, and it appears Hugh Hefner is, too! Brittny is Playboy's Miss January 2015, the mag announced Tuesday, which means the 24-year-old brunette beauty is the first Playmate of Playboy's 61st year! "Starting a new year is like hitting the refresh button. I love that this inaugurates a new chapter in my life." Britt tells Playboy, adding, "Happy New–I wish everyone 365 days of great sex!" How—charming! Britt, who has reportedly been dating her Twilight hunk since October, modeled for 12 years prior to this R-rated gig. As a teen, she even entered into beauty pageants, but since then she says she's "turned to the »

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind »

Viola Davis, Jennifer Lopez, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, Greta Gerwig, Jesse Eisenberg, Saoirse Ronan, Ryan Reynolds, Peter Sarsgaard and Lily Tomlin — as well as directors Noah Baumbach, Michael Almereyda, Rodrigo Garcia, James Ponsoldt, Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman — are among the big names in the Premieres lineup at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, unveiled today along with Documentary Premieres and a new Special Events section.
Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City, “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”
By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.

The Sundance Institute effectively filled out its slate for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival with the announcement of the always star-friendly premieres category.

Wentworth Miller made his first red carpet appearance in over four years at the 2014 TrevorLIVE La annual event for The Trevor Project on Sunday at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The 42-year-old actor recently returned to television to play the iconic DC villain Captain Cold -- aka Leonard Snart -- on "The Flash." He took a long break from the small screen after starring on Fox's "Prison Break" for four seasons and working behind the camera on 2013's "Stoker." Miller came out as a gay man in 2013.Monica Lewinsky also made a rare appearance at the event, showing off her slim silhouette in a long black gown with cascading ruffles.The famous White House intern has been making the media rounds to reveal her plan to launch a "cultural revolution" against the kind of bullying she was the victim of after her affair with Bill Clinton.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
David Letterman and Seth Meyers are on repeats this week, but Jimmy Fallon is still keeping the holiday spirit alive. On Tuesday night, he and Reese Witherspoon sang "Random Phrase Carols," where classic holiday song lyrics were replaced by random words. For example, "Jingle Bells" became "Small Old Man." (Now "Small old man, small old man, small old man named Tom..." is in our heads forever.) Reese didn't quite nail her solo song, but then she and Jimmy did a little duet. The whole thing was pretty random, but after hearing the same Christmas carols a thousand times a year it's nice to have new lyrics.
Anyway, Reese was »

Sorry, ladies: Kellan Lutz is officially off the market—and his new girlfriend is smokin' hot! E! News confirms that the 29-year-old hottie has coupled up with model Brittany Ward. "Kellan and Brittany are dating," a source tells us, adding that the two are "very close and have been for some time." The insider also revealed that the good-looking pair began seeing each other in October. "They are super cute together." The Hercules hunk and the brunette beauty first sparked romance rumors when the two were photographed biking around Marina Del Rey, Calif. together over Thanksgiving weekend. They also attended Halloween »
The Expendables movies feel like they shouldn’t exist outside of a fever dream. Even watching one, they’re just the sugar-fueled stories of a kid who’s brought in all his toys to fight each other. The first two weren’t great, but had moments of charm, and the third film might be the best of the bunch, even if it often feels like the cast are brought in based on their days available. Sylvester Stallone leads The Expendables 3 cast that includes Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Ronda Rousey, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer and more and my review of the film on Blu-ray follows after the jump. The film starts as Stallone’s Barney Ross leads a rescue mission to retrieve original expendable Doc (Snipes), who’s been in prison for – as he says – “tax evasion” (wink wink). After the big opening set piece which »

Stars are coming out in droves to support a good cause.
The Trevor Project’s annual TrevorLIVE Los Angeles event, an evening celebrating the entertainment industry’s biggest Lgbtq advocates and supporters, has booked Jennifer Coolidge to host the star-studded gala on Dec. 7, ETonline has learned exclusively. And that’s not all!

Before Darren Criss returns to the final season of Glee, which kicks off Friday, Jan. 9 on Fox, he’ll join The Voice season-seven finalist Mia Pfirrman, who was eliminated from Team Adam in the first round of the live playoffs, on the performers’ lineup. And less than two weeks after country star Ty Herndon officially came out as gay in an exclusive interview with Et, he’ll take the Hollywood Palladium stage, along with singer Anita Cochran.
The Expendables 3 didn’t do too well at the box office, saved only by international takings. It didn’t do too well with us here at Flickering Myth either, and you can see why here and here. And it seems that the big man himself, Sylvester Stallone, agreed. In an interview with Crave Online (which you can read here), the action star is asked if future instalments will be R-rated:
“Absolutely unequivocally yes. I believe it was a horrible miscalculation on everyone’s part in trying to reach a wider audience, but in doing such, diminish the violence that the audience expects. I’m quite certain it won’t happen again.”
Phew. Lets hope that he sticks to that when EX4 rolls around. At least he lost that awful moustache.

This past summer Sylvester Stallone made a return to the action franchise he started in 2010 with an entry that brought in a nice batch of old dogs and a group of newbs that added some flair to the series. With so many action gods running around the set, it had to be a crazy experience for the young guns that joined in the fun, including Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Kellan Lutz, and Glen Powell. In this exclusive featurette from the upcoming Blu-Ray we explore just that, as the young guard »

There was a lot of backlash when The Expendables 3 was rated PG-13 in order to garner a wider audience. Between that move and the unfortunate leak that occurred several weeks before the film's release, the sequel didn't really hit the box office with its best foot forward. And now franchise creator Sylvester Stallone is weighing in by saying that rating the film for more family friendly audiences was a "horrible miscalculation." Incidentally, he says this on the eve of the film's Blu-ray release, which will feature an unrated version of the picture. He also promises that The Expendables 4, should it happen, will be more violent. Hit the jump Stallone's comments on The Expendables 3 rating. The film (along with the unrated cut) arrives in a Blu-ray combo pack (with Digital HD) on November 25th.

In the words of the big man himself, Dwayne Johnson was born to play Hercules. With apologies to Kellan Lutz, there's only one man in Hollywood these days that could convince audiences that he bested the Nemean Lion, beheaded the Lernaean Hydra, and beat back the Erymanthian Boar, and that man is The Rock. Unfortunately, Brett Ratner's take on the Hercules legend chose not to explore the hero's twelve labors, but to adapt Steve Moore and Admira Wijaya's graphic novel, "Hercules: The Thracian Wars." Perhaps if that had been communicated more clearly in the film's marketing, audiences (and maybe even critics) would have given Hercules more of a chance, since it's a surprisingly fun action-adventure film that lets Johnson swing away while surrounding him with a strong supporting cast. Now that the film's available on Blu-ray, you can check it out for yourself. Hit the jump for our Hercules Blu-ray review. »
