Blade Runner 2049 - Announcement Trailer


The official announcement trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' is finally here and while we still know little about the plot, we do get a glimpse of Ryan Gosling in his leading role as Officer K. We see him approaching the wreckage of what looks like a blimp and then an empty building in which he comes across a gun-wielding Harrison Ford who returns as Rick Deckard. The movie is based 30 years after events in the first movie, the LAPD's Officer K is the new blade runner in town, but his job gets a lot more complicated when he uncovers the truth behind the replicants' existence and sets out to find the long lost Deckard.

Benedict Cumberbatch will make his superhero debut in next year in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. But it almost wasn’t to be for the ‘Sherlock’ actor, as his commitments to stage play Hamlet nearly cost him the role.

Speaking to Empire magazine, the film’s director Scott Derrickson said that Cumberbatch was “the only actor we seriously considered” for the superhero role. But unfortunately, Cumberbatch had already signed on to play Hamlet at London’s Barbican in the autumn of 2015.

Jared Leto To Portray Andy Warhol In New Biopic


Jared Leto

He’s already taken on the prestigious role of The Joker this year, but now Jared Leto is set to tackle the role of a real-life cultural icon, with the announcement that he’s to produce and star in a new biopic about Andy Warhol.

Leto, 44, has signed on to portray the legendary pop artist in a new biopic project simply titled Warhol. He will also co-produce the film alongside Michael De Luca, whose credits include The Social Network, Fifty Shades of Grey and Captain Phillips.

Terence Winter, best known for his writing work on hit TV shows ‘The Sopranos’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’, is adapting the script for the project from Victor Bockris’ 1989 book ‘Warhol: The Biography’.

It Sounds Like Jared Leto Is Also Disappointed About The Joker's Lack Of 'Suicide Squad' Screen Time


Jared Leto

Suicide Squad actor Jared Leto is just as disappointed as fans are about The Joker’s lack of screen time in the comic book movie. Despite being heavily featured in the film’s trailers, Leto’s Joker doesn’t appear much in the actual movie, with a lot of his scenes being left on the cutting room floor.

When asked by IGN if he was upset about any of his scenes getting cut, the actor responded: “Were there any that didn’t get cut? I’m asking you, were there any that didn’t get cut? There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn’t even start.

Jared Leto Was Honoured To Be The Suicide Squad's Joker


Jared Leto

And he decided to take on the iconic supervillain Joker in the DC Comics thriller Suicide Squad. It's a brash move, but Leto says he loved the film's originality. "You can anticipate a lot of chaos and a hell of a lot of fun," he says. "And I think it's something completely different than other movies in the genre."

Jared Leto creates his own version of The Joker in Suicide Squad

An actor who also fronts a rock band (30 Seconds to Mars), Leto says he doesn't have a master plan, even after winning an Academy Award. "My career has had a nice slow burn," he says. "I never woke up one day and all of a sudden my life changed. And I'm grateful for that, because I think it has allowed me the time and space to adjust accordingly, to find out where and how I'm comfortable doing things. A little bit has been fate. Some of it's been design. Fame has never been a target for me."

Suicide Squad Review

OK

DC Comics' villains team up for an overcrowded action movie that never quite finds its tone. Writer-director David Ayer takes a serious approach to an absurd premise, while the actors inject sparks of bitter humour. But with a thin plot and characters that are only superficially developed, the film struggles to grab hold of the audience. At least there's plenty of whizzy action mayhem.

With everyone worried that the next Superman might turn out to be a terrorist, government agent Amanda (Viola Davis) has a crazy idea to turn the most violent criminals in prison into an elite black ops team. These include gruff marksman Deadshot (Will Smith), mentally unstable sexpot Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), archaeologist-turned-enchantress June (Cara Delevingne), Aussie killer Boomerang (Courtney), fire-maker Diablo (Jay Hernandez), swordswoman Katana (Karen Fukuhara) and man-monster Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Each of these psychos has a personal weakness Amanda and team leader Rick (Joel Kinnaman) plan to leverage to keep them under control. Meanwhile, Harley's main squeeze Joker (Jared Leto) is trying to help her escape. Oh, and a meta-human wants to decimate humanity.

Ayer introduces each character with his or her own mini-montage, including snippets of back-story and cameos from the likes of Batman (Ben Affleck). These flashbacks continue throughout the movie, stirring emotion into various characters' decision-making processes. But that's about it as far as depth goes, and the script never imagines anything more original than pining after a lost love, missing a child or feeling guilty about past mistakes. While this adds a bit of interest, it never generates any proper connections, either between the characters or with the audience.

Jared Leto has apologised to Taylor Swift after a video emerged online of him critiquing tracks from her album 1989.

In the video, a pink-haired Leto is first played ‘Welcome To New York, the opening track from 1989. ‘Oh I don’t like this at all. Next,’ Leto says. The Oscar-winner is then played mega-hit ‘Blank Space’, which he seems more positive on.

Jared Leto Suggests Jennifer Lawrence Is Fake: Did He Say What We're All Thinking?


Jared Leto Jennifer Lawrence

Jared Leto has caused shock after he suggested that the typically goofy personality of actress Jennifer Lawrence might all be an act designed to create publicity and warm the public to her. The 42 year-old Dallas Buyers Club star was asked by Access Hollywood what he thought of Jennifer's Oscars stumble (her second to date) to which he replied "You know, I'm starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act."

Jared Leto Vanity Fair Oscars
Jared Leto Has Implied That Jennifer Lawrence's Fall Was Fake.

He described the scene where she gingerly climbed the stage to present the award for Best Actor at the ceremony last Sunday whilst Ellen DeGeneres mimed behind her back: "Why are you laughing? What, is this funny? I'm still watching you!" said Lawrence as she tried not to trip for a third time. Jared explained: "But what [J-Law] didn't know was that Ellen was on the side.making, pantomiming 'don't fall, don't fall!' - and my mom and brother are all cracking up."

Jared Leto Linkin Park AFI

Jared Leto isn’t like most Oscar winners. He’s been criticised for his role as the transgender character Rayon, and not 48 hours after his Best Supporting Actor win for the role, it has been announced that he and his band – 30 Seconds to Mars – are off on a massive tour with Linkin Park.

Jared Leto’s Oscar win may have seemed unlikely a few years ago, while the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman was taking a break from the big screen and concentrating on his music, but he was very much the favorite to pick up Best Suuporting Actor for his role as Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club on Oscars night – an award that has attracted criticism from certain transgender groups.

While DBC is celebrated for its overarching message, celebrated by its peers in a cinematic context and saw Matthew McConaughey pick up Best Actor for his portrayal of Ron Woodruff, Leto’s role, many feel, could have been played by a transgender actor.

One way to view the Academy Awards last night was through the eyes of the stars themselves, as many of them took to Instagram and Twitter to keep us up to date with their Oscar night happenings.

Some stars started their picture taking before they even got to the ceremony, like Joseph Gordon-Levitt  who tweeted a pic of himself literally on his way to the awards, taking a selfie in his limousine.

Matthew Mcconaughey may have pulled off the performance of his career in Dallas Buyers Club but the actor apparently had to convince the movie's directors that he was the right guy to take on the role of entrepreneurial AIDS victim Ron Woodroof.

Matthew McConaughey Was Far From First Choice To Play Ron Woodroof.

Looking at the series of cheesy rom-coms that McConaughey has padded out his career with, it's fairly easy to see why director Jean-Marc Vallee was at first sceptical about casting the classically handsome, all-American beefcake actor. "I wasn't sure about Matthew at first," said Vallee to THR. "Mr. The Most Handsome Man With Muscles? Then I met him and found a man who really wanted to change perceptions and have new challenges in his career."

The Evolution Of Jared Leto: Teen Idol, Rockstar, Oscar Nominee


Jared Leto

Actor, rockstar and perhaps future Oscar winner, Jared Leto has gone from early 90s teen idol status to one of Hollywood's most dedicated, critically acclaimed actors. The now 41 year old star has had a career evolution over the past 20 years with more than a few surprises along the way.

Jared Leto star of Dallas Buyers ClubJared Leto star of Dallas Buyers Club could take home the Oscar next month

Leto’s breakthrough role was opposite Claire Danes in the 1994 TV show ‘My So-Called Life’. Although the series was short lived, running for only one season it was critically acclaimed and would later gain a cult following. He landed his first big screen role in 1995 ensemble cast drama’ How to Make an American Quilt’. After ‘My So-Called Life’ ended Leto was inevitably painted as a teen heartthrob, and although his film choices weren't always obvious, such as 1996’s 'High Kings ‘ and ‘Switchback’ in 1997, he was stil yet to land a major film role.

Dallas Buyers Club Review


Excellent

In telling this remarkable true story, director Jean-Marc Vallee (The Young Victoria) and his gifted cast keep the characters and events so grounded that we can't help but get caught up in their story. The film never asks for our sympathy, but it earns it over and over again as it explores a disgraceful period in American history when businesses and the government essentially condemned millions to death by withholding proper treatment for HIV and Aids.

It begins in 1985, when homophobic womaniser Ron Woodroof (McConaughey) is told that he has just a month to live. Refusing to believe that he has the same disease that has just killed Rock Hudson, he ignores his doctors (Garner and O'Hare) to find his own supply of AZT, which makes him even more ill. So he heads to Mexico to find a range of treatment the US government has refused to approve, and he imports them himself, creating a members' club to subvert the law. This requires that he set his deep-seated prejudice aside so he can work with the transgendered Rayon (Leto). But a government lawyer (O'Neill) is determined to shut him down.

Yes, it's deeply infuriating to watch the American system try so hard to stop Woodruff from saving lives. Government officials continually outlaw his effective treatments so they can pawn off the toxic, over-priced AZT instead. So Woodruff travels the world in search of new medicine, and his business of course takes off. Vallee cleverly cuts through the 1980s period details to reveal Woodruff's earthy tenacity and an overpowering sense of humanity.

Leto has recently appeared in Dallas Buyers' Club as Rayon, a transgender woman. The hecklers, when Leto asked what they meant, stated Leto didn't "deserve to play a trans woman." Leto was, understandably, perplexed and asked the woman why. He said, as PEOPLE reports, "Because I'm a man, I don't deserve to play that part. So you want to hold a role against someone who happened to be gay or lesbian, they can't play a straight part?"

Jared Leto and Michael Douglas each won a Golden Globe award last night for their stand-out performances in very different films.

With such high profile awards for what would have traditionally been controversial roles, the actors' wins mark a great leap forward for the portrayal of LGBT characters in movies and a move to eradicate homophobia and stereotyping in cinema. Whilst these positives cannot be denied, it has been noted in the wake of the initial glow and glamour of the awards that not every aspect of Leto and Douglas' win is cause for celebration.

Nevertheless, Steve McQueen's slavery drama took home the award, seeing of some admittedly strong competition from Nebraska, Philomena, Rush and Gravity.

Matthew McConaughey Completes U-Turn As 'Dallas Buyers Club' Stuns The Critics


Matthew Mcconaughey Jared Leto

It’s official, Matthew Mcconaughey’s days as an up-and-coming, comedy actor are over. Mud and Dallas Buyer’s Club have seen to that, with what looks like a sterling performance in True Detectives coming in January to boot. But it’s the 44-year-old’s performance as Ron Woodruff that has the critic’s heads in a spin.

Woodruff was a cowboy unfamiliar with the quieter side of life. Always living as he pleased, his stormy existence came into serious doubt when he was given 30 days to live after being diagnosed with the AIDs virus - a death sentence in the 80s, when the film is set.

Matthew McConaughey Wins Over His Critics With Remarkable 'Dallas Buyers Club' Performance


Matthew Mcconaughey Jared Leto Jennifer Garner

Matthew Mcconaughey has been the butt of many a joke over the course of his career, with his acting ability often brought into question by critics and jokers alike thanks to his largely uninspired choice of roles. His latest film, however, is a major departure from his usual rom-com venture and has even had people crying out for him to be awarded an Oscar, or at least get a nomination for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.

Matthew McConaughey
McConaughey is exceptional in the film

McConaughey stars as Ron Woodroof in the true story of the former Dallas Cowboys star who is stricken with the still-largely unknown and misunderstood HIV virus in 1986. Abandoned by his friends and acquaintances and given just 30 days to live by his largely unhelpful team of doctors, Woodroof is forced to take matters into his own hands and ships in various 'cures' and treatments from across the globe. Soon he begins to build up a surplus of supplies and begins distributing them among the largely ignored HIV-suffering population, meeting like-minded people on his trip, including Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto, both of whom have also been widely praised for their performances.

Critics have been stunned by Matthew Mcconaughey's performance in Dallas Buyers Club, which has been the central focus of reviews about the upcoming film.

Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughey stars in Dallas Buyers Club as HIV positive Texas Cowboy, Ron Woodroof. The film is based on the true story of Woodroof and the early days of the AIDS epidemic. When Woodroof was diagnosed with HIV he was given 30 days to live and, receiving little help from the government or his acquaintances, attempts to find treatments from across the globe. Along the way he encounters other HIV positive people and discovers a way to ensure these people could buy treatment.

The Movies Beckon This Weekend: 'Last Vegas', 'Enders Game,' 'Dallas Buyers Club' [Trailers]


Robert De Niro Matthew Mcconaughey Jared Leto Morgan Freeman

We've been spoiled by great films all year and this first week of November is no different with a cornucopia of cinematic excitement headed towards US shores.

'Last Vegas' - Out 1st Nov.

Arguably the most entertaining release of the week will be Jon Turteltaub's new comedy, Last Vegas. The movie has assembled a sterling cast of older actors, including Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline. To call the movie the grandpa's version of The Hangover would not be giving the film credit for its compelling premise which makes for a hugely watchable film with a driving force of solid acting talent.

Alexa Chung Opens Up About Her Break-Up With Artic Monkeys Frontman Alex Turner


Alexa Chung Alex Turner Jared Leto

English television presenter Alexa Chung was reportedly ''bored and sad'' following her break-up with Alex Turner, the frontman for the Artic Monkeys. Chung has spoken out for the first time since her four-year relationship with Turner ended in July of 2011, stating that she didn't know what to do with herself. The 29-year-old model and presenter apparently started a new project instead of wallow in heartache, apparently, which led to the writing of her new book, 'It'. 

In a discussion about the time after her relationship ended, Chung said: ''I was approaching 30, and reflecting on how a lot had happened in such a short space of time ... And I was bored - really bored. Bored because I didn't have my fuse gig yet. Bored and sad. I shouldn't have said that. But, well, it's the truth. I was heartbroken and I didn't know what to do, so I decided to throw myself into a project.''

Has 'Dallas Buyers Club' Entered The Oscars Race? [Trailer + Pictures]


Matthew Mcconaughey Jared Leto Jennifer Garner

The 2014 Oscars will be dominated by films based on a true stories, and a worthy addition to that lengthy list is Dallas Buyers Club, the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who went to war with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies after being diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1986.

Matthew McConaugheyMatthew Mcconaughey as Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club

Playing Woodroof is Matthew McConaughey, and the chain-smoking, whiskey-downing cocaine-sniffing rodeo cowboy is masterfully portrayed in Dallas Buyers, or so says the reviews. Now we’re looking at another Oscar contender.

Matthew McConaughey Sparks Oscars Buzz With 'The Dallas Buyers Club' Trailer


Matthew Mcconaughey Jared Leto

Matthew Mcconaughey has a very real chance of scoring his first ever Oscar nomination for The Dallas Buyers Club. Before this week, we'd only been treated to stills from the drama - showing the Hollywood actor playing a dangerously thin AIDS patient - though now we have the trailer, and the 38-year-old's performance comes across very, very well.

Early reaction suggest The Dallas Buyers Club could be McConaughey's strongest role yet and the first footage appears to corroborate with that line of thought. The thing is: if McConaughey is going to score a lead actor nomination, then Jared Leto may get the nod for supporting actor by default. He plays fellow AIDS patient Rayon, who weighed just 116 pounds during filming, evoking memories of Christian Bale's chilling appearance in The Machinist.

Based on a true story, The Dallas Buyers Club sees McConaughey play Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, a man who found himself in a life or death battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies.

Sacha Baron Cohen Steps Out Of Freddie Mercury Biopic: Who'll Play The Queen Frontman Now?


Sacha Baron Cohen Freddie Mercury Queen Jared Leto Eric Bana Ezra Miller Johnny Depp

Sacha Baron Cohen AKA Ali G AKA Borat AKA... you get it, was an example of a truly fitting casting decision when it was announced he'd be playing Freddie Mercury in a biopic about the late Queen lead singer's life, with even Brian May and Roger Taylor on board to contribute a few tunes and make sure the film was headed in the right direction.

Brian May
Strong-Willed Guitarist Brian May Is On Board For Queen Movie.

It's true, there's few more perfect to play iconic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury than British comic Sacha Baron Cohen: the looks, the eccentricity, the infectious energy and the unquestionably self-confident flair. However, the 41 year-old actor has pulled out of the planned biopic due to "creative differences," confirms Baron Cohen's manager via Variety. According to Deadline, the band were after a more PG-ready film whilst Baron Cohen pushed for a grittier tell-all R-rated version that would take a deeper look at the talented singer's life both on and off the stage.

Jared Leto Is All Dolled Up In Pink Wig And Fake Lashes


Jared Leto Katy Perry Zooey Deschanel

The latest pressing question on people’s minds – does Jared Leto resemble Katy Perry or Zooey Deschanel? Not in his natural state of course, then he mostly resembles a moodier version of Jake Gyllenhaal (by popular opinion). But put a pink wig and some cherry red lipstick on that man and you’ve got yourself a Katy Perry lookalike, apparently. You can see where we’re going with this. right? Leto donned the drag getup for the cover of Candy magazine – no special reason, presumably because he just felt like wearing a pink wig that day. According to MTV, the cover was shot by Terry Richardson, whom you may recognise from Kate Upton’s infamous Cat Daddy video, or most other things Kate Upton has done, really.

Leto ditched the black in favor of a cotton candy pink getup.

Ok, the 30 Seconds To Mars vocalist does, in fact, have a movie to promote these days. Leto tends to go for the quirkier roles out there and his part in The Dallas Buyers Club follows the same pattern. In DBC, the singer/actor plays an AIDS-afflicted transsexual. According to the Candy article, he was forced to lose 30lbs for that role.

Black And White (1999) Review


Good
A very unique and brutal subculture exists in America these days. It's a strange juxtaposition of harsh street life and uber-materialistic greed tempered with a sense of justifiability from a code of unwritten ethics. The world is that of the gangsta rappers, the ghetto boys, and the thug-life advocators that dominate the world of hip-hop and rap music. Black and White, the latest film by James Toback, explores this subculture that grows stronger with every new generation it affects.

The hardest thing about an outsider trying to infiltrate a subculture and explain it to the masses is that the truth is often lost in the translation. Toback throws together a huge canvas of characters and actors in attempt to create a clear picture of why white kids are motivated to impersonate black rappers' lifestyles and why rich whit guys treat black rappers like Arnold and Willis from Diff'rent Strokes.

Cool And The Crazy Review


Terrible
Bleargh.

Ever wonder what became of Ralph Bakshi -- who made those weird Lord of the Rings videos in the '70s along with Fritz the Cat? Well, among other atrocities he's responsible for this film, Jared Leto's first film and one of Alicia Silverstone's earlier appearances, too.
