Stop what you’re doing and watch the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
After some, uh, questionable posters, the first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is finally here, so feast your eyes on the best acting Leonardo DiCaprio has ever done — at least according to the little girl at the end.

Set in 1969, the film follows Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), a former star on a TV Western who’s trying to break into movies, and his Bff and stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt).

“Actors are required to do a lot of dangerous stuff,” Dalton says at the beginning of the clip. “Cliff here is meant to carry the load.”

“Carrying his load? Yeah, that’s about right,” Booth says.

Margot Robbie Shares Her Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Character Poster

It was just yesterday that we shared with you guys the first poster for the ninth film by Jackie Brown and Kill Bill writer-director Quentin Tarantino. The movie is called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and yesterday's poster featured stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt hanging out and looking ten types of cool in front of the famous Hollywood sign. I dug that poster quite a bit, but my one issue is that I would have liked to catch a glimpse of Margot Robbie's take on the real-life actress and Charles Manson victim Sharon Tate.

While that didn't happen, today it's all good as now we have an all-new character poster for the upcoming flick which lets Margot Robbie shine all on her own outside the famed Westwood Village theater, which is showing the 1966 comedy Penelope starring Natalie Wood, as directed by Arthur Hiller.

Remembering Dan Jenkins: The ‘Hunter S. Thompson of Modern Sportswriting’

In dozens of tributes, Dan Jenkins — who died at 90 on March 7th in his birthplace of Fort Worth, Texas — was cited as the most influential and/or the greatest sportswriter, period, of all time. The author of 23 books and untold hundreds of articles and columns was at the outset most noted for his first novel, Semi-Tough (1971), a groundbreaking, raucous deep-dive into the world of pro football that became a celebrated 1977 film starring Burt Reynolds, Kris Kristofferson and Jill Clayburgh.

Jenkins left indelible imprints in journalism, particularly in his nearly 25 years at Sports Illustrated.

Exclusive Photo: In Memoriam Actor Jan-Michael Vincent, Dead at 73

Chicago – In one of Jan-Michael Vincent’s most recent photos, taken in 2016 by photographer Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com, the ex-heart throb actor is revealed as a man who lived his life hard to the end. Vincent died last month in Asheville, North Carolina, on February 10th, 2019. He was 73.

Jan-Michael Vincent was born in Denver, and after high school in Washington state he bounced around with three years of college and a stint in the California National Guard.

After doing several TV and movie bit parts, he scored in the early 1970s with high profile roles in “Going Home” (1970), “The Mechanic” (1972) and in Walt Disney’s “The World’s Greatest Athlete” (1973) as the title character.

Jan-Michael Vincent, Star of Airwolf and The Mechanic, Dies at 73

Joseph Baxter Mar 8, 2019

Former Hollywood heartthrob Jan-Michael Vincent, star the hit TV series, Airwolf, is revealed to have died last month.

Jan-Michael Vincent, former star of the smash 1980s TV series, Airwolf, has died, reportedly at the age of 73. It’s an occurrence that, in actuality, took place nearly a month ago – on February 10 – and we only just now learned.

According to Vincent’s death certificate, as obtained by THR, the actor passed away as a result of cardiac arrest at Mission Hospital's Memorial Campus in Asheville, North Carolina. His death caps off widely-reported struggles with drugs and alcohol, which led to a tumultuous personal life rife with permanent-injury-inducing accidents and shameful legal issues, notably connected to domestic violence. However, his downfall contrasts sharply with an auspicious early career.

Vincent in the 1972 film The Mechanic.

By Lee Pfeiffer

Jan-Michael Vincent, the one-time heart throb star of films and television in the 1970s and 1980s, has passed away at age 74.  He was born in Denver but had the look of a hunky surfer dude. In the late 1960s he began to get noticed in Hollywood, landing supporting roles in films such as "The Undefeated" opposite John Wayne and Rock Hudson. It was his starring role in the acclaimed 1970 TV movie "Tribes" that won him enthusiastic critical notices as a young recruit in conflict with his drill instructor. Soon, Vincent was a major star with top billing in films like "Buster and Billie" , "The World's Greatest Athlete", "Baby Blue Marine", "Vigilante Force" and "White Line Fever". He also co-starred with Burt Reynolds in the 1978 hit "Hooper". Other prominent roles include his memorable performance opposite Charles Bronson in the 1972 crime thriller "The Mechanic

‘Russian Doll’ Star Elizabeth Ashley on Her Early Stage Career
The force of nature born Elizabeth Ann Cole, and rechristened Elizabeth Ashley for stage and screen of the late 1950s, first drew the attention of critics and fans with her work in New York theater, garnering an early-career Tony Award for her portrayal of Mollie in the Broadway production of “Take Her, She’s Mine” in 1961.

Ashley’s big-screen debut in 1964, the hit film adaptation of Harold Robbins’ mega-best-seller “The Carpetbaggers,” earned her a Golden Globe supporting actress nomination and led to decades of work on screens big and small, including an Emmy Award-nominated turn in the Burt Reynolds ’90s comedy series “Evening Shade.”

More recently, Ashley appeared in the hit film comedy “Ocean’s 8” and has lit up the Netflix mind-twister “Russian Doll” as Natasha Lyonne’s unconventional therapist. Her first time in Variety was 60 years ago, when she appeared in a critically trounced 1959 summer stock production of noted

One of the staples of any awards telecast, especially a show as big as last night’s Oscars, is the In Memoriam segment. This segment is the ceremony’s way of honoring those Hollywood figures that have passed away in the previous year. And while the video (which you can watch in its entirety below) is a sweet, and emotional, look back at some of the industry’s greatest, it’s also the time when eagle-eyed viewers can find out which deceased person gets snubbed.

Oscars 2019 In Memoriam: Which people made the cut and who was left out?
For Sunday’s Oscars 2019 ceremony, producers had a difficult decision of which film industry people would make the cut and who would be left out of the “In Memoriam.” For the segment, Gustavo Dudamel and the L.A. Philharmonic performed music by Oscar winner John Williams.

Over 100 Academy members or film industry veterans died in the past 12 months. Visit our own Gold Derby memoriam galleries for the year of 2018 and the newly-started gallery for 2019.

Oscars In Memoriam: Penny Marshall and Burt Reynolds Among Those Remembered
Each year the Academy Awards pays tribute to those actors and industryites who died during the preceding year with a heartfelt montage sequence. This year’s In Memoriam segment unspooled with John Williams’s theme from “Superman” played by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by Gustavo Dudamel, over photos of actors, filmmakers and many others who died between March 2018 and February 2019. Although the montage usually features the most prominent names getting slightly longer clips at the end, this year’s segment didn’t follow that tradition.

Stanley Donen, the co-director of “Singin’ in the Rain” and director of “Two for the Road,” who died Saturday, was not included.

Those who were recognized included “Big” director Penny Marshall, “Deliverance” star Burt Reynolds and major filmmakers including Bernardo Bertolucci, Milos Forman, Nicolas Roeg, Neil Simon, Marvel legend Stan Lee and “Princess Bride” author William Goldman. Other prominent acting talents remembered in the montage were Albert Finney,
