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.

All is not completely hopeless for Lindsay Lohan. If she’s ever in doubt about making a legitimate comeback, all she needs to do is look at Robert Downey Jr. for inspiration. There once was a time when the 48-year-old actor was considered damaged goods after a string of drug arrests, rehab stints and box office bombs. Now, he’s Forbes Highest-Paid Actor In Hollywood based on earnings from June 2012 til June 2013.

According to the publication, Downey Jr. raked in an astonishing $75 million over the past year. A massive sum bolstered by gigantic blockbuster hits like The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Both of those movies made over $1 billion at the international box office.

Coming in second place is everyone’s favorite former stripper turned Hollywood A-lister, Channing Tatum. The 33-year-old new dad’s runner up status was buoyed by the success of Magic Mike. Since he self-financed the flick, he laughed all the way to the bank with most of the film’s profits. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below. There’s a couple of surprises including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson making the cut.

Based on the memoir of the same name, The Wolf of Wall Street is a true story about Jordan Belfort. The Gordon Gekko-idolizing figure presided over a brokerage firm that operated as a boiler room which cheated investors for $200 million. He spent 22 months in jail after confessing to money-laundering and securities fraud. The film revolves on Belfort’s hard partying ways which includes, believe it or not, throwing dwarves, sinking yachts and romancing models.

Leonardo DiCaprio once again reunites with director Martin Scorsese. The 38-year-old actor is joined in the flick by a star-studded cast including Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey,Jon Bernthal, Kyle Chandler, Margot Robbie, Cristin Milioti, and Jean Dujardin.

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

In: Matt, Movies

The reviews are mixed on Baz Luhrmann’s take of The Great Gatsby, which opens in theaters today and kicks off the Cannes film festival next week. But while some critics have panned the film, I was LIVING for it the entire time.

In case you never read the book, the story is told by Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) who, while chasing success in the roaring 20s stock market boom, rents a modest cottage on long island only to find that he has moved next door to the home of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), an extravagant mansion that hosts extremely lavish parties.

Watch Five Minutes From The Great Gatsby

In: Donovan, Movies

The more footage I see from Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic novel, the more I’m itching to see it. I’m just crossing my fingers that I’m not extremely let down. Even if the story sucks, the visuals are certain to impress, especially in 3D. Luhrmann never disappoints in that department. Once again, he looks to have hit a home run capturing the glamorous roaring 20s.

Warner Bros. recently released seven clips, roughly about five minutes of footage, from the highly-anticipated film. The selection of clips give a good impression of the lavish visual style created by Baz. Most of the scenes feature several characters talking about Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), often in contradictory, elusive terms. Tobey Maguire’s Nick Carraway, the inquisitive narrator, is the one most prominently shown in the footage. Watch the video below.

The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards took place on Saturday (April 20) in Los Angeles. Drew Barrymore hosted the event at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live which featured a performance by Kelly Rowland.

On hand for the annual event were Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire, Charlize Theron, Matt Dallas with his fiance Blue Hamilton, Darren Criss, Alex Pettyfer who gave Betty White a smooch, Chris Evans with his gay brother Scott and many more including Jennifer Lawrence who debuted a brand new hairstyle. The Silver Linings Playbook actress was there to present the inaugural Advocate for Change Award to Bill Clinton for his work campaigning to legalize same-sex marriage.

“I want to keep working on this until not only DOMA is no longer the law of the land, but until all people, no matter where they live, can marry the people they love. I believe you will win the DOMA fight, and I think you will win the Constitutional right to marry. If not tomorrow, then the next day or the next day.” – Bill Clinton

In 1996, the ex-president signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defined marriage as a partnership only between a man and a woman. In recent years, he’s changed his stance and campaigned heavily against anti-gay legislation proposed in various states. He credits his daughter Chelsea and her gay friends for seeing the way. Others honored last night include The New Normal, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Days of Our Lives. Check out all the winners, Clinton’s speech and a few more photos below.

There are a couple of things to expect from a Baz Luhrmann film- great visuals and even greater music. Both Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet were masterpieces with fantastic soundtracks. With the talent on board (onscreen and off) for his big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, I expect nothing short of spellbinding.

Luhrmann just dropped a brand new trailer and it’s even better than the first one. It’s amazing how music can change the mood and help tell a story. A couple days ago, word leaked that Beyonce and Andre 3000 were covering Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” for the film. It’s not the entire thing, but we have our first listen at their remake in the trailer. Also featured in the clip are soundtrack contributions from Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine. Both are equally as promising.

I can’t wait for The Great Gatsby to hit theaters on May 10 and I’m even more excited for the soundtrack to drop. Check out the new trailer below.

Kate Winslet Is ‘Outta This World’

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

To say Kate Winslet leads a charmed life is putting it mildly. Not only is she strikingly beautiful, but she’s extremely talented as well. At age 31 she was the youngest actress to accrue five Academy Award nominations. Number six proved lucky when she finally nabbed the Oscar for Best Actress in The Reader. She’s even co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio not once, but twice. Speaking of Leonardo…

Reportedly, her Titanic co-star walked her down the aisle for her recent wedding to Ned Rocknroll. Hopefully, marriage number three will be it. Winslet was previously married to Jim Threapleton (1998-2001) and Sam Mendes (2003-2010). To congratulate the happy couple, one particular tycoon gave a very unique wedding gift. Find out below who, what and why they gave Winslet and Rocknroll this present.
