With four Academy Award nominations to his credit, it’s rather shocking that Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t have an Oscar statue on his mantle yet. The 40-year-old is one of the finest actors of his generation without his doubt. Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman) could be his ticket to Oscar glory.

The Revenant is inspired by true events experienced by a 19th century frontiersman who is mauled by a bear and left for dead by his expedition crew. The first teaser trailer is beyond tense with its beating drums and heavy breathing.

Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Lukas Haas, and Will Poulter also appear in the film. Christian Bale was originally tapped to play the lead before DiCaprio stepped in. The Revenant heads into theaters on Christmas Day, just in time for Oscar consideration.

The Revenant Movie Synopsis

In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.

Disney Developing Live-Action Aladdin Prequel

aladdin-live-action-prequel

At least this time, it isn’t a flat out live-action copy of an existing animated classic. There’s actually a bit of originality involved this time around.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is developing a live-action prequel to the 1992 Arabian animated hit, Aladdin. Tentatively titled Genies, the new adventure will explore the world of genies and give a backstory to the character voiced by Robin Williams in the original. Exactly how he became trapped in the magic lamp.

Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been given the task to write the screenplay. Reportedly, this project will eventually lead up to live-action adaptation of Aladdin. No shock there.

This news comes on the string of numerous previously announced live-action remakes of Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Winnie The Pooh and Pinocchio. Not to mention the already released Maleficent and Cinderella.

What are your thoughts on a prequel? Excited that at least it’ll be somewhat of an original concept? Weigh in below.

With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes the past three years, it hardly feels like seven years since they starred in Baby Mama. But it has. The two Saturday Night Live alums reunite on the silver screen for the upcoming comedy Sisters.

They play estranged sisters who come together after being summoned by their parents. Turns out, their childhood home has been sold. While cleaning out their bedrooms, they come up with the brilliant idea to throw one last rager and invite their former classmates with the exception of Maya Rudolph.

Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest, John Cena and James Brolin round out the cast. Sisters rages into theaters on December 18, 2015. The movie is rated R for “crude sexual content.” Once you watch the full trailer, you’ll see why. Poor music box never saw it coming ;)

The only thing missing from Miss You Already is Bette Midler’s epic ballad “Wind Beneath My Wings” playing in the background. The tearjerker is practically Beaches but with Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette filling in for Barbara Hershey and Midler.

Barrymore and Collette play childhood best friends living in London. Rachel Weisz was originally tapped to play opposite Collette before Barrymore stepped in. Their relationship goes through the ringer when Drew faces fertility issues and Toni is diagnosed with breast cancer. They’re supported by a solid cast, including Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine as their love interests.

The dramedy is somewhat of a departure for director Catherine Hardwicke who’s known for films like Red Riding Hood, Thirteen and Twilight. Check out the trailer for the tearjerker below. Be sure to have some tissues handy.

“Love, Revenge and Haute Couture.” Best.Tagline.Ever!!!

The Dressmaker is an upcoming Australian revenge comedy drama film based on Rosalie Ham’s novel of the same name. Kate Winslet plays the titular role who returns to her small Australian hometown to take care of her ailing mother. She causes a stir because of the rumors surrounding why she was sent away when she was just a child.

Liam Hemsworth plays a young man that Winslet falls in love with. Who can blame her? I’ve always admired Winslet for her acting and now I’m officially jealous. I wonder how many takes it took to film that scene where they make out while Hemsworth is shirtless. Lucky gal.

Judy Davis and Hugo Weaving round out the cast. Director Jocelyn Moorehouse (How to Make an American Quilt) describes the movie as “Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven with a sewing machine.” Love it!!!

The film is set to open in Australia on October 22, 2015. No US date has been announced yet. Check out the trailer below.

The Dressmaker Movie Synopsis

Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet), a beautiful and talented misfit, after many years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, returns home to the tiny middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly (Judy Davis) and unexpectedly falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy (Hemsworth), but armed with her sewing machine and incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.
