James Franco doesn’t have a lot of down time these days. From museum art installations to directing and starring in various Hollywood features, the 35 year-old actor remains one of the most vocal performers in show business, whether his publicist likes it or not.
Enter Tuesday’s “Man of Steel” review.
“‘Man of Steel’ is great because it delivers everything it should,” he wrote after the film’s London premiere. “It made Superman cool again.”

But then he threw in a little bit of kryptonite.
In an effort to explain why Hollywood continues to make and remake these big-budget films, Franco wrote “The answer is, of course, money. We are in the film business, and the »

Taormina, Italy – The Great Gatsby’s Baz Luhrmann will be a guest of honor at the upcoming Ischia Global Film & Music Festival, which will honor him with a special ceremony at the Villa La Columbaia, once the residence of iconic Italian filmmaker Luchino Visconti.

As I’ve mentioned here before, I’ve been a Superman fan pretty much forever. Superman was my first encounter with superheroes, beginning with watching the first Christopher Reeve Superman movie when I was very small. Through the years, Superman has remained one of my favorite superheroes. Sure, I love Deadpool (obviously!), and I’ve always been a big X-Men fan… and Batman… and Spider-Man… and I could go on and on from there – but Superman, the most unequivocal and steadfast symbol of hope and ethical humanity in the whole collection, has always been there in the background, informing my appreciation of the rest of the bunch.
Some people say that Superman is a boring character. He’s too perfect. He’s incredibly powerful and can do almost anything, way beyond what most of us can fathom, and he’s constantly doing the “right” or noble thing. How interesting can someone like that be? »

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 »
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 film looks like another great Scorsese film, and it boasts an incredible cast that also includes Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bernthal, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, Jon Favreau, Jean Dujardin, and Spike Jonze.
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!

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, »

I’ll say one thing about Paramount’s official trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, the new Martin Scorsese joint starring Leonardo DiCaprio as convicted stock market manipulator Jordan Belfort: It is impossible to look away from. It’s flashy, fast, and keenly edited to include only the most theatrical arrogance. Essay question: Am I attracted to Leonardo DiCaprio? Are we? I forget.
First, the trailer.
Everyone here’s playing a souped-up version of a previous role. Jonah Hill‘s know-it-all character from Moneyball has bloomed naturally into a cocky honcho type, Matthew McConaughey’s Magic Mike guru is now a hifalutin’, ultra-confident suit, and Leonardo DiCaprio is the white-collar criminal from Catch Me If You Can as re-conceived in Gordon Gekko’s image. On paper, Leo’s upgrade is ideal. »

Fresh off his role as the titular 1920s playboy in "The Great Gatsby," Leonardo DiCaprio is back for more big spending and hard partying, '90s-style, in the first trailer for "The Wolf of Wall Street," his latest film with Martin Scorsese. After going the family route with 3D fable "Hugo," Scorsese looks to be back in "Goodfellas" territory with "Wolf," which tracks the rise and fall of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio). Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey both co-star and look to be in scene-stealing form. "The Artist" breakout Jean Dujardin is also part of the cast, but doesn't appear in the video below. "Boardwalk Empire" creator Terence Winter wrote the script. The film bows November 15. Watch trailer below. »

Leonardo DiCaprio is on a roll!From "The Great Gatsby" to his latest starring role as Jordan Belfort in "The Wolf of Wall Street," the 38-year-old is well-versed when is comes to playing a heavy hitter.

If this is truly a time of peak Leonardo DiCaprio, then let's take a moment to honor one of the 38-year-old star's go-to screen moves: the raising of a glass.
DiCaprio, who also yells a lot during his movies (when he isn't making one of these faces), has saluted audiences already this year in "The Great Gatsby"; he'll do it again in the upcoming film "The Wolf At Wall Street," because of course he does. The guy just looks cool holding a drink.
Ahead, a (very) brief history of DiCaprio toasting.

Paramount Pictures has debuted the trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s new film The Wolf of Wall Street that looks goddamn awesome! Oscar-winning director has always been able to surprise us throughout his career, and he’s able to do it again. In the vein of: Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby meets Oliver Stone’s Wall Street meets Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain, the upcoming drama-thriller is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the memoir author Belfort, a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was ‘indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.’ Three-time Oscar nominee’s »

The first trailer for The Wolf Of Wall Street has arrived, and while I can’t get the similarity of DiCaprio’s performance in The Great Gatsby out of my head, the latest movie from Martin Scorsese looks rather great! The story follows a New York stockbroker who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration. The Wolf Of Wall Street is released on January 17th 2014 (Ireland & UK) and November 15th (USA) »

Faced with a choice between a post-Apocalyptic science-fiction thriller and a broad American comedy last weekend, Australian cinemagoers chose the latter.
The Internship, the Googleplex-set caper starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, raked in $2.3 million in its opening frame, beating After Earth, the father-and-son survival saga featuring Will Smith and Jaden Smith, which made $1.8 million.
That was a reversal of their Us debuts where the M. Night Shyamalan-directed After Earth fetched $27.5 million- a mediocre result for a film that cost $130 million- and The Internship collected $17.3 million.
One Australian exhibitor had a hunch the comedy with two popular actors would resonate more strongly than the sci-fi film which he derided as boring. That.s another dud for the director after The Last Airbender.

Los Angeles — "Man of Steel" leaped over box office expectations in a single weekend.
The Warner Bros. superhero film earned $113 million in its opening weekend at the box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The retelling of Superman's backstory earned an additional $12 million from Thursday screenings, bringing its domestic total to $125 million. Original box-office expectations for "Man of Steel" ranged from $75 million to $130 million.
"They finally got the Superman formula right," said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. "Superhero movies really are the bread and butter of the summer box office. The fact that `Iron Man 3' has the biggest opening of the year so far and `Man of Steel' has the second biggest opening of the year just proves that."
