Exclusive: Jonah Hill has taken on management. He has signed with Lbi Entertainment, where he will be repped by a team headed by Ian Montone and Rick Yorn. They will rep him in all areas, along with Wme and attorney Karl Austen. Hill continues to surprise as he evolves from the fro-headed kid in Superbad to a lead in ribald stoner comedies like This Is The End, to serious roles like his Oscar nominated turn in Moneyball, and the upcoming Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf Of Wall Street. In the Rupert Gould-directed Plan B-produced True Story, Hill next plays disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel, who was sacked just as a suspected killer on the FBI’s Most Wanted List who was using his name got caught, and would only talk to the journo at a time his life was crashing down around him. James Franco plays the killer. »

Man of Steel box office to reach $150 million in North America today (photo: Dylan Sprayberry as the young Clark Kent in Man of Steel) Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill in the title role, Man of Steel will undoubtedly pass the $150 million milestone at the North American box office on Tuesday, June 19, 2013. Partly boosted by 3D surcharges, after about four and a quarter days (including $12 million from Thursday evening screenings), Warner Bros.’ $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel has taken in $141.26 million from 4,207 Us/Canada locations, including $12.58 million on Monday as per Box Office Mojo. For comparison’s sake: From Friday-Monday, without the advantage of box-office-inflating 3D surcharges, Jon Favreau / Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man earned $105.55 million, or about $117 million today. So, if the 3D surcharges* are deducted from Man of Steel‘s Friday-to-Monday total, the 2013 Superman reboot would be left with $116.34 million. In other words, the $140 million-budgeted Iron Man »

Who knew the end of the world would be so funny? Seth Rogen stars as Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill plays Jonah Hill, James Franco is James… You get the idea. A team of comedy all-stars play exaggerated, vapid, and obnoxious versions of themselves who must band together when the Apocalypse hits. This Is the End might [...]

When we first heard about Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's directorial debut This is the End, we were on the fence about how it would turn out. With a cast that includes Rogen and recurring collaborators James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Michael Cera, it seemed to have a solid start. Plus Rogen and Goldberg showed their sharp skills at crafting an outrageous but heartwarming (in a bromance-way) narrative with Superbad. But with all these stars playing themselves, would this be an entertaining comedy that pokes fun at their celeb personas against the backdrop of the apocalypse? Or would This is The End be a series of in-jokes that would only be amusing to Rogen's circle of friends? We were thrilled to report it's the former, a fearless and funny movie that gets celebrity schadenfreude right. And among its many virtues is a finale »
In an interview with Flicks and Bits, McBride described his reaction when Rogen first asked him to appear in This Is the End.
"It was one of those ideas that when Seth pitched it to me I was like, 'That's great, but no-one will ever make that movie'," he recalled.
"And then when they did I thought it was amazing that we would have the opportunity to do something like this."
He went on to say: "I had heard they were working on this movie, and it was one of those movies that the idea sounded so crazy that you never really knew if it would come to fruition. »
The trailer for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill among others, sent a shock wave last night when it finally dropped. Set to the pulse of Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" (releasing tomorrow as part of the rapper's already-leaked sixth studio album, "Yeezus"), it announced a whole new shade for the filmmaker that has brought us delicious bite in a wide array of films, from "Taxi Driver" to "Goodfellas" to "The Departed." Will this take on capitalism's great shame, coming at just the right time, stand shoulder-to-shoulder with those classics? Time will tell. Will »

Leonardo DiCaprio's 2013 seems to be full of rich men doing wild things. Fresh off his turn in "The Great Gatsby," the actor's tackling another era full of outrageously rich behavior in "The Wolf of Wall Street."
In the new film, directed by Martin Scorsese, DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, a real-life, and hard-partying, stockbroker who -- alongside fellow brokers played by Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill -- lived the high life in the '80s and '90s: avoiding the feds on yachts, taping money to women's bodies, throwing wild parties in the office. (That avoiding the feds thing? Spoiler alert: Belfort spent 20 months in prison for market manipulation.)
Be sure to check out the trailer above. "The Wolf of Wall Street »
We haven't seen an edgy Martin Scorsese film since The Departed 2006, but all that's about the change with his new movie, The Wolf Of Wall Street starring his muse Leonardo DiCaprio. Take a look at the wacky preview of crooked Wall Street honchos.
Martin Scorsese has been pretty tame in his latest movies such as Hugo and Shutter Island, but with The Wolf Of Wall Street, Scorsese returns to quirky characters and wild scenarios. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Matthew McConaughey, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Jon Favreu, Margot Robbie and Spike Jonze star in the film about a wealthy New York stockbroker, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who refuses to cooperate with the FBI in a securities fraud case on Wall Street. And in Martin Scorsese fashion, the mob is involved.
Matthew McConaughey is a hoot in the

"Is all this legal? Absolutely not"
A first trailer has been released for Martin Scorsese's new movie, The Wolf of Wall Street, based on ambitious stockbroker Jordan Belfort's memoir of the same name. The billionaire's lavish lifestyle soon turned upside down when he was caught in the middle of a securities fraud, but this first look is definitely more about the dollars. Beginning with "The year I turned 26, I made $49 million," we get a glimpse of what "more money than I know what to do with" entails as green bills fly left, right, and center, along with a whole lot of other crazy: Strippers wearing money, walking chimpanzees, a flying dwarf, and, Matthew McConaughey, channeling Christopher Walken, treating us to a surprisingly endearing dinner tune.

Warning: Spoilers, Spoilers, Everywhere...And Not A Drop To Drink.
Theater-goers who checked out "This Is the End" this weekend were not surprised to find a gaggle of comedy's finest playing themselves in a post-apocalyptic fight for survival — with Milky Ways. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride form the end of the world version of *Nsync and try to maneuver through their sea of troubles with unity in tact. When McBride is banished from the group, he emerges later with his own army. A cannibal army. An angry cannibal army. S**t just got real.
But the craziness doesn't end there. McBride has casually kidnapped himself a sex slave that he keeps on a leash close to his leg. Donning an S&M-esque mask at first, McBride eventually unveils his captive. He is no other than Magic Mike himself: Yes, Channing Tatum is Danny McBride »

Paramount Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Martin Scorsese's new film The Wolf of Wall Street. The movie follows a young New York stockbroker named Jordan Belfort played by Leonardo DiCaprio, "who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration."

The movie hits theaters on November 15th, 2013. It almost seems like this is an alternate 1980s set version of The Great Gatsby. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think!

A new red-band clip from This Is the End has been released.
Written and directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the comedy stars Franco, Rogen, McBride, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Emma Watson, all playing fictionalised versions of themselves.
The group assembles - along with a host of other celebrities - at a house party hosted by Franco, but are forced to fend for themselves after a global apocalypse occurs.
Franco recently discussed the experience of playing himself, explaining that the fictional Franco's obsession with Seth Rogen is an exaggeration of the pair's real-life bond.
This Is the End is currently on release in the Us, »
It's hard not to immediately think of Goodfellas while watching the deliciously hip and happening first trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. It begins with a fast-talkin' voiceover from Leonardo DiCaprio, who at one point also breaks the fourth wall and addresses the camera -- signaling Scorsese is returning to one of his most familiar storytelling devices. The film, like Goodfellas, is also based on a real-life story -- the '90s-set rise and fall of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort -- and, like Goodfellas, The Wolf of Wall Street appears to have a trio of male actors taking the lead with DiCaprio, Jonah Hill (playing comic relief, much in the same way Joe Pesci did in Goodfellas) and Matthew McConaughey, who, like Robert De Niro, seems to be in...

Fresh off The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio is rolling in the dough again - but this time it's the 1990s, baby. The brand-new trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, which reteams DiCaprio with director Martin Scorsese for the fifth time, shows the star partying hard with his shady stockbroker buddies - while the FBI is sniffing around. DiCaprio's voiceover kicks things off with a Goodfellas vibe: "The year I turned 26, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week." Matthew McConaughey looks to be continuing his scene-stealing streak as DiCaprio's boss, »
