In 2002, Leonardo DiCaprio was at a career crossroads.
His floppy blond mane and soulful blue eyes had threatened to stop teenage hearts around the globe as he slipped from Kate Winslet’s grip and slid into an icy ocean in “Titanic.” The unprecedented box office returns for the romantic drama transformed DiCaprio into a pinup with few equals, but it had also made him a prisoner of its success, hounded by paparazzi and dismissed as a party boy, whose dalliances with models were drawing more attention than his performances.
It didn’t help that DiCaprio’s post-“Titanic” roles as an American traveler in “The Beach” and as a French monarch in “The Man in the Iron Mask” left critics cold and were only modest box office performers. He seemed burdened by fame and risked being written off as a supernova who frittered away his talent in the white hot »

How badly does Leonardo DiCaprio want that Oscar? Three words: raw bison liver. That's right, the actor munched on a real bison liver for a scene in The Revenant, opening wide on Jan. 8.

While he’s certainly known for his comedic side with his Saturday Night Live background and crop of studio comedies, Jason Sudeikis has been making a bit of a shift recently. With last year’s Sleeping with Other People and a few upcoming films (notably Colossal), he’s been shifting a bit closer to drama. This is also true when it comes to Tumbledown, a new romantic drama which premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Directed by Sean Mewshaw (who is finally making his debut after a career which even includes being a production assistant on Gangs of New York), the first trailer has now landed. The story follows Sudeikis’ character befriending a widow (Rebecca Hall) to co-write a biography of her late biography of her late singer husband. Also starring Blythe Danner, Joe Manganiello, Dianna Agron, Griffin Dunne, and Richard Masur, check out the trailer and poster below. »
