Go And See 'Nymphomaniac' This Weekend, Because It's Really Good


Charlotte Gainsbourg Lars Von Trier Shia LaBeouf

This weekend sees the limited release of Lars Von Trier’s latest mindbender: Nymphomaniac. Fans of the enigmatic Danish director will relish the chance to see both volumes back to back with this one-day (Saturday Feb 22) release, but if you need convincing to see 4.5 hours of Lars then read on.

Charlotte GainsbourgGainsbourg gets up to some raunchy stuff in Nymphomaniac

The film, like many of Von Trier’s, sees Charlotte Gainsbourg take the lead role. She’s a troubled nymphomaniac who provides the film’s plot by recounting her life after Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård) finds her beaten in an alley.

It’s split in to two parts – Volume I and II – and both parts are playing tomorrow in London as a double feature. The reviews, however, seem to focus on individual volumes, with the first achieving 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, and the second, 83%.

“A provocative, engrossing, often hilarious, frequently tough picture. Not for all sensibilities but it's among von Trier's more playful, purely entertaining films, with insight and humour in even the horrors,” wrote Empire’s Kim Newman in his review.

“By the end of four hours the concept "picaresque" has been serially used and abused, much like the film's heroine. There's a vision here, even so, that shapes the film's prolix, promiscuous ends,” said Nigel Andrews in The Financial Times.

“For the most part Nymphomaniac is compelling and achieves exactly what von Trier set out to do: a multi-faceted exploration of sexuality, in all its bizarre, twisted glory,” writes James Mottram for The List.

And here, at Contact Music, Rich Cline awarded Nymphomaniac (both volumes as one film) 4/5, writing: “For the most part Nymphomaniac is compelling and achieves exactly what von Trier set out to do: a multi-faceted exploration of sexuality, in all its bizarre, twisted glory.”

If one thing’s for sure, it’s that Lars Von Trier will take you out of your comfort zone with Nymphomaniac, and it’s something you should experience in its enterity. So what are you waiting for, pick up the phone and start dialing! Oh wait, that’s a different film.

Nymphomaniac Review


Excellent

At four hours long, this drama is as confrontational as anything we've seen by Lars von Trier (Melancholia), but it's also perhaps his most humane and hopeful film yet. This is a challenging, complex exploration of human sexuality, but it's told with a surprisingly light touch, allowing humour and warmth to seep in around the edges. So even if it's darkly haunting and occasionally shocking, violent or sexually explicit, it's so recognisably honest that we can't help but be moved.

This is the story of Joe (played as a teen by Martin and as an adult by Gainsbourg), who is found near death in an alleyway and nursed back to health by the kindly Seligman (Skarsgard). While she recovers from her injuries, she tells him about her life, which has been defined by sex since she was 2 years old. She loses her virginity as a teen to the greasy biker Jerome (LaBeouf), who will re-enter her life two more times over the following decades. Through the years she struggles to understand love, which she sees as lust plus jealousy. Then when she suspects that love might be the secret ingredient for good sex, her subsequent experiences take her down an unexpected road.

Flashbacks to Joe's life are sequential, so as she narrates her story we experience it along with her. This includes her riotous teen years preying on men as a game, protesting with her friends against a love-fixated society. Getting sex is easy, but making sense of it is something else. She tries being randomly cruel to men, and having a master (Bell) physically abuse her. She experiences love and motherhood, and eventually finds a career as an enforcer for a loan shark (Dafoe). Along the way, Martin and Gainsbourg deliver unflinching performances that let us see Joe's soul. And Skarsgard takes our breath away in an unusually introspective, wrenching role.

A Week In News: America's Darling Dies, Samuel L Jackson Feels The Fury, Flappy Bird Meets Its Maker


Shirley Temple Samuel L Jackson Shia LaBeouf Julia Roberts Drake Philip Seymour Hoffman Billy Ray Cyrus Vivienne Westwood

Shirley Temple

RIP Shirley Temple: For younger generations, the death of Shirley Temple may not be as heart-rending as for those who grew up with the adorable, depression-era actress and watched her help pull America out of its slump. Temple died peacefully at home aged 85 on the 10th February after a life of reinventing herself and bringing joy to others through her many talents. You may or may not know that Temple was huge in China, but why? Find out here. Shirley Temple: 1928-2014.

Samuel L Jackson Makes Himself Clear: Samuel L Jackson has been involved in what was arguably the biggest foot-in-mouth moment of the year so far. In an interview with KTLA's so-called "entertainment reporter," Sam Rubin, Jackson was asked about his recent Super Bowl commercial...only, the Robocop actor didn't have a Super Bowl commercial, leading to quizzical stares and the immortal quote "what Super Bowl commercial?" as it dawned on the star that Rubin had him confused with fellow black actor, Laurence Fishburne. Read about the fall-out and watch the toe-curling video here.

Amanda Bynes And The Curse Of The Child Star


Amanda Bynes Britney Spears Shia LaBeouf

The Amanda Bynes saga was funny at first. When she started dressing like Nicki Minaj, pierced her cheeks and began tweeting strange messages to rapper, Drake, it all just seemed like harmless Miley Cyrus attention seeking. But then things took a turn for the worst when Amanda’s behaviour became increasingly erratic, culminating in her attempting to start up a fire in a neighbour’s driveway before accidentally covering her puppy in gasoline.

Amanda Bynes Troubled Star Amanda began behaving strangely, emerging from court wearing a knotted blonde wig

The actress’ problems didn’t seem to really start until 2012 when she received a DUI and later that year she was charged for two more alleged hit and run incidents. By 2013 she had been arrested for possession of drugs and her hard partying seemed to be a symptom of something a little more sinister. When things finally came to a head with the fire incident, it was clear that Amanda wasn’t high on drugs or ‘acting out’, this was somebody with mental health issues.

Shia LaBeouf Competes With Jerry O'Connell's Rival "#IAMSORRYTOO" Art Installation


Shia LaBeouf Jerry O'connell

So Shia LaBeouf isn't famous anymore? Why then, if the 27 year-old Nymphomaniac actor is so averse to a bit of spotlight, has Shia embarked on a trail of most bizarre incidents, starting will his plagiarism of a graphic artist's work, followed by over-apologising, declaring his retirement, walking out of a Nymphomaniac press conference, wearing a paper bag with "I Am Not Famous Anymore" and leading up to his LA art exhibition.

The list of weirdness was long enough without the art exhibition, entitled "#IAMSORRY." Visitors are reported to have been scanned by a security guard before they were allowed in one at a time to "see" Shia. They were expected to pick an implement from a table, which apparently included a Daniel Clowes graphic novel, a wrench, and some Hershey Kisses, before going into a room where Shia sat silently with a bag over his head.

That Eric Cantona Kronenbourg Advert? Yeah, It's Been Banned


Eric Cantona Shia LaBeouf

While Eric Cantona is no stranger to being banned, his latest is not really his fault. The advert in which he stars – one for Kronenbourg 1664 – has been pulled for misleading customers.

Eric CantonaEric Cantona's parody ad is not cool

The misleading part comes from the assertion within the advert that the beer is brewed in a particular French town, Alsace. But it’s not: it’s brewed in the rainy British city of Manchester. Which isn’t quite as glamorous. The ad sees Cantona parody the treatment footballers get, from fan adulation to superstar treatment in various establishments.

Tearful Shia LaBeouf Brings Out The Paper Bag For Performance Art Piece


Shia LaBeouf

Is Shia LaBeouf a misunderstood genius of our time? The actor went from cryptic tweets to deliberate plagiarism, to storming out of a press conference and wearing a paper bag on his head and finally, to a performance art piece. LaBeouf brought out the “I Am Not Famous Anymore” paper bag for a performance art piece, which will run Tuesday through Sunday at the Cohen gallery in Los Angeles. The piece is called “#IAMSORRY” and it was announced via press release from the gallery.

“Shia LaBeouf is sorry. Sincerely sorry. He will be in situ at 7354 Beverly Boulevard for the duration. Implements will be provided. Free admission,” the announcement said.

Forget Shia LaBeouf's Diva Act, 'Nymphomaniac' Is A Runaway Berlin Hit [Trailer + Pictures]


Shia LaBeouf Lars Von Trier Stellan Skarsgard Charlotte Gainsbourg Willem Dafoe Jamie Bell Uma Thurman Christian Slater

Lars Von Trier's controversial new movie Nymphomaniac has gone down a storm with critics after having premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. However, cast member Shia LaBeouf, who has been doing a lot of bizarre things recently in the name of performance art, drew unnecessary attention to himself by walking out of the press conference and appearing with a paper bag on his head on the red carpet.

Shia LaBeouf Paper Bag
That There, That's Shia LaBeouf...Promise!

After being asked about the movie's explicit sex scenes, of which apparently there are many, Shia quoted footballer Eric Cantona's famous 1995 line: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea" before making his exit, according to BBC News. He later appeared on the red carpet for the premiere screening wearing a brown paper bag with the words "I am not famous anymore" written on it with two eye holes.

Shia LaBeouf: His Five Weirdest Moments


Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf managed to out do even himself in the bizarre stakes yesterday, by storming out of the press conference for Nymphomaniac after quoting Eric Cantona and then appearing at the premiere with a paper bag over his head with I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" written across it. Crazy stuff but this is all what we've come to expect from Shia who’s created his own Beouf-ometer of weirdness in recent years with these 5 moments alone:

1. Dropping acid for a role.
For his role in Charlie Countryman, Shia dropped acid in front of several cast and crew members including Ron Weasley, I mean Rupert Grint. Grint later described how LaBeouf “smashed the place up, got naked and kept seeing this owl,” wow, however if the owl was Pigwidgeon it’s understandable.

2. The Sigur Rós video
Shia starred in the video for Icelandic band Sigur Rós’ single 'Fjögur Píanó', where his performance inclduing doing some weird interpretive dancing and then stripping off, unsurprisingly the video became a viral hit. Warning NSFW:

Seagulls, Sardines And Paper Bags - Is Shia LaBeouf Pulling A Lady Gaga?


Shia LaBeouf Christian Slater Lars Von Trier

Given Shia LaBeouf’s recent antics, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the man is a bit... err… eccentric. He’s also very self aware though, just take a look at his outfit for the “Nymphomaniac Volume I” premiere at the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival.

Shia LaBeouf, Nymphomaniac Volume I Premiere
Even if he isn't famous, LaBeouf can always rely on his fashion choices to make a stir.

LaBeouf’s look included a sharp black tux, white shirt and a brown paper bag. Say what you will about LaBeouf, but he obviously knows how to make a statement. In this case, he made it in black marker on the paper bag on his head. The message read: “I am not famous anymore.” – a statement he has been tweeting repeatedly since January 13, as USA Today notes.

Retire? No Way: Shia LaBeouf Is Rocking The Kasbah With Bill Murray And Bruce Willis


Shia LaBeouf Barry Levinson Bill Murray

Shia LaBeouf’s antics over the past year have been attributed to a wider ideal: a performance art piece produced with the help of several other artists. Whether that’s true or not, the mercurial actor claimed he was retiring ‘from public life’ – a claim that has just been confirmed as boohocky with the announcement of his role in Rock The Kasbah. (Casbah? Some say K, some say C)

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf doing some sort of work - proper work

LaBeouf – who made his name as a child-star in Even Stevens, and enjoyed a successful turn in Holes - will star alongside Bill Murray in Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah. Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Zooey Deschanel also share the screen. Brian Grazer and Tom Freston are stepping in to exec produce Kasbah, while QED International will be looking for buyers at Berlin's upcoming European Film Market.

Shia LaBeouf Does A Joaquin, Explains Confusing Incidents As "Meta-Modernist Performance Art"


Shia LaBeouf Joaquin Phoenix

Shia LaBeouf has pulled what is known nowadays in showbusiness as a "Joaquin Phoenix," whereby one goes undercover, creating a series of provocative stunts to make the media believe that one's marbles have truly been lost then claiming it was all for art. The actor confused fans recently with a string of bizarre and out-of-the-blue incidents which included ripping off artist Daniel Clowes' work, apologising via a sky-writer, and a string of weird tweets over-apologising for his actions.

Many probably assumed that LaBeouf, the former child star of Even Stevens, had simply gone off the rails a bit, as the Macaulay Culkins of the world have done before him. The media scratched its collective head and decided to laugh about the Transformer star's weird happenings. The chain of incidents seemingly ended a few weeks back with LaBeouf announcing that he was "retiring from all public life" after all the negative attention he was receiving.

'Selfie' Is The Word Of The Year: Charting Its Rise To The Top


Kim Kardashian Jennifer Aniston Mariah Carey Prince Geraldo Rivera Shia LaBeouf

2013 is the year of the 'selfie,' the Oxford English Dictionary reckons at least, as the word used to describe a self-shot photograph has been named as the word of the year by the established dictionary authority. According to the Oxford English Dictionary web page, the decision to adopt selfie as word of the year was a " unanimous" decision, noting a 17,000 per cent increase in the usage of the word over the past 12 months.

Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is one star who has helped boost the 'selfie' craze

The powers at the Oxford English Dictionary have gone on to chart the rise of the word selfie, tracing its origins to a 2002 ABC Online forum posting. The word experts noted the wider use of the word in 2003 and its adoption into common usage by 2012, but it isn't until 2013 that selfie has become worthy of the Word of the Year title. It beat such buzzwords as 'bitcin,' 'showrunning' and the ever popular 'twerk' to emerge victorious, but what is it that has made 2013 the year of the selfie?

Just How Bad Is 'Charlie Countryman'? Also, Shia LaBeouf Took The Wrong Drug!


Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf is an egg. That basically means he’s a bit silly, which we’re pretty sure we can say without being sued. But just in case: Shia LaBeouf is NOT silly. He is however, an idiot. He’s in a really bad film called Charlie Countryman, and to prepare for said bad film, he took the wrong drug.

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf looking sullen in Charlie Countryman - don't read the reviews mate

Charlie Countryman has amassed 30% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty bad. But it’s not the worst film ol’ LaBeouf has ever done. The Holes actor has some pretty shoddy scores on the review aggregator site. Countryman is below his average of 50% (of the 22 films with ratings, that is).

Brad Pitt's 'Fury' Faux Pas: Filming Nazi Scenes On Remembrance Sunday


Brad Pitt David Ayer Shia LaBeouf

Remembrance Sunday is primarily a day to mourn, commemorate and celebrate the efforts of solders in World War I, but that doesn’t totally excuse Brad Pitt and his WWII film Fury for filming Nazi scenes on November 11th.

Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeoufBrad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf film scenes for 'Fury.'

David Ayer is probably facing the biggest backlash; filming for his WWII tank epic kicked off at 4am this morning, with gunshots, explosions and a hundred extras dressed as both allied and Nazi forces rampaged through fields. And it’s not as though he wasn’t warned: emotional pleas to delay the filming during remembrance Sunday fell of deaf ears as Ayer pushed on with his schedule.

Shia LaBeouf isn't scared to show a little (or a lot) of skin, as he has shown with his increasingly sordid roles. After baring all for the Sigur Rós' music video for the song 'Fjögur Píanó,' before stripping off completely and getting steamy for the screen with his Nymphomaniac co-stars, Shia this time took to Twitter to flash his bits.

Charlie Countryman comes out next month

Sharing an image from his upcoming film, the rom-com meets action adventure Charlie Countryman, Shia told his followers to check out the upcoming film and gave them at least one reason to check it out with the racy image. Early on Sunday (hey what else are you going to do on a Sunday morning), 20 October, Shia uploaded the image to his Twitter account, along with the caption; "tune in, turn on, drop out - #CharlieCountryman 11/15."

Brad Pitt Shia LaBeouf David Ayer Scott Eastwood Logan Lerman

A stuntman on Brad Pitt's World War II movie Fury was stabbed in the shoulder with a bayonet and air lifted to hospital in Oxford this week. The 35-year-old was accidentally injured during a rehearsal at the movie's set in Pyrton, Oxfordshire. Not familiar with this movie? Read our 'Everything you need to know about Fury'

Earlier this month, a letter was sent to residents in the community on behalf of Pinewood Studios, warning them to expect "intermittent controlled gunfire and explosives" during the shoot for the movie.

A spokesman for the movie confirmed the stabbing happened as two stuntmen were filming at a converted farm.

Charlie Countryman Trailer


Charlie Countryman is a regular guy who is prompted to travel to Bucharest in Romania after experiencing a vision of his deceased mother. However, along the way, fate intervenes when a middle-aged man dies in his sleep while seated beside Charlie, and he is suddenly embroiled in the case of his death. He meets his striking musician daughter Gabi who he vows to help find out what happened to her father, while getting involved with her party-hard, drug-taking friends. The pair begin to fall head over heels in love with each other, but when her crime boss husband Nigel appears, things take a turn for the worst for Charlie. Attempting to stand up for himself and protect his new lover, he endures several emotional and physical attacks from the ruthless Nigel before realising the only way he can save Gabi; he must die for her.

Stuntman Bayonetted On Brad Pitt's 'Fury' Film Set In Oxfordshire


Brad Pitt Shia LaBeouf

Fury director David Ayer is looking to make his new movie as realistic as possible, sending his cast to the woods to get them into the mindsets of a WWII troop of soldiers, helping them bond as a unit left to fend for themselves. Then there was the Pinewood Studios notice sent to residents of Shirburn, Pyrton and Watlington in Oxfordshire that they should expect to hear "intermittent controlled gunfire and explosives" during the making of the wartime film.

However things got a little too real today on set when a stuntman was injured by a bayonet, i.e. the pointed blade attached to the end of a gun. BBC News reports that a 35 year-old was injured at around midday in Pyrton and was subsequently airlifted to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital.

Brad Pitt In Mr. Comfort’s Zone, But Not In His Consciousness


Brad Pitt Shia LaBeouf

Why is it so funny when old people don’t know who celebrities are? Jay Z’s subway friend - Ellen Grossman - made the news when she asked the infamous rapper what he did. Now, Mr. Comfort, a consultant for Brad Pitt’s new film, Fury, had no idea who the Hollywood ‘A-Lister’ was.

Brad Pitt
He had no idea who this man was: Brad Pitt

"My regiment, the Light Dragoons, got in contact with me about three weeks ago. They'd been approached by an ex-officer who worked for a film company and asked if there were any old boys left,” explained the war veteran. "Then Brad Pitt phoned me and said he wanted to speak about Sherman tanks for a film. He talked me into going and, I have to say, I was extremely well treated.”

Shia LaBeouf's NSA Surveillance Claims Proven Correct


Shia LaBeouf Jay Leno

Shia LaBeouf's NSA worries were essentially proved correct over the weekend as further details emerged of technology giants' co-operation with US spy agencies. Apple, Facebook and Google issued strongly-worded denials that they had 'knowingly' participated in a scheme with the National Security Agency, providing emails, conversations, documents, photos and other materials from agents.

29-year-old former technical assistant to the CIA Edward Snowden is the individual responsible for leaking one of the most significant cover-ups in US political history, though was Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf the first to publically air his fears of the NSA on a mass scale? During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2008, LaBeouf - the star of the Transformers movies - told the American public that "one in five phone calls which you make are recorded, and logged."

"I laughed at him [FBI agent who told Shia about the surveillance], and then he played back a phone conversation I had had two years prior to joining the picture [Eagle Eye]... And it was one of those 'What are you wearing?' kind of things."

Is Cannes Really Cannes Without Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac'?


Lars Von Trier Charlotte Gainsbourg Kirsten Dunst Willem Dafoe Shia LaBeouf

Lars Von TrierA Still From Lars Von Trier's Controversial New Movie 'Nymphomaniac'

In 2011, Lars Von Trier was the undisputed headline maker at the Cannes Film Festival, though for all the reasons. "What can I say, I understand Hitler. I think he did his wrong things ... but I understand the man," the Danish filmmaker said at a press conference for his movie Melancholia, as Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg looked for the nearest hole to swallow them up. On the occasion, Von Trier was regarded persona non grata and was essentially banished from the festival.

Now, two years later, he has another controversial movie to promote - Nymphomaniac with Gainsbourg, Jamie Bell, Shia LaBeouf and Willem Dafoe - though there is no room for the movie at Cannes. Instead it premieres four days after the festival ends, in Denmark. According to Fox, Von Trier is not banned from the Cannes and simply missed the cut-off submission date for his movie to screen there. The Guardian's critic Xan Brooks argued that Cannes without the filmmaker is simply not the same - and the blustery Riviera weather has done little to make stars, critics and filmmakers feel at home. "He transgressed and was punished and the scars, it seems, have yet to fully heal," Brooks wrote. "But Cannes and Von Trier need each other."

Megan Fox Trampoline Stunt Sets The Tone For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie


Megan Fox Michael Bay Shia LaBeouf

We know she probably hasn’t been on your mind too much lately, but Megan Fox’s trampoline studs made headlines yesterday. The Transformers starlet was caught filming a scene for her upcoming Michael Bay production, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As Fox was wearing tight clothing – a tank top and yoga pants, you can imagine how excited the fanboys got over the stills. We’ll give you a hint: very excited.

For those of you who haven’t been paying close attention, here’s a quick rundown of the Fox/Bay situation. The actress starred along with Shia LaBeouf in the first two transformer movies, before being booted off for a younger, hotter actress (who had, as you may have guessed, even fewer lines in the film than Fox had had). At this point though, everything is mended between Bay and Fox and she is back to provide the mandated dose of eye candy in the flick - which, judjing from the trampoline photos, courtesy of Us Weekly, she is doing a spectacular job providing.

In this new adaptation, Fox will be portraying TV reporter April O’Neil and she’ll be teaming up with actors Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo) and Danny Woodburn (Splinter), as well as a lot of CGI. The plot or general idea is as of yet unknown, but you can count on the fact that, in typical Michael Bay style, there will at least be lots of explosions throughout to keep you from getting bored.

Does Broadway's 'Orphans' Work Without Shia LaBeouf? [Pictures]


Alec Baldwin Shia LaBeouf Tom Sturridge Ben Foster

The Broadway production of Lyle Kessler's 'Orphans' starring Alec Baldwin, opened at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Thursday evening (April 18, 2013), after a chaotic build-up that saw lead star Shia LaBeouf walk out of rehearsals. The play follows two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. The eldest (originally played by Shia, now by Ben Foster) supports his younger sibling (Tom Sturridge) by stealing before kidnapping a rich old man (Baldwin) who becomes the father figure the boys never had.

LaBeouf departed after a highly publicized disagreement with Alec Baldwin, with private emails making their way online. "I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don't think he's in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theater is and what the theater isn't," Baldwin told Vulture.com afterwards. However, the Transformers actor showed up on the front row for the previews at the end of March and led a resounding standing ovation when it finished.

Sour Grapes? Bizarre Behaviour From Shia LaBoeuf At The Play He Was Fired From


Shia LaBeouf Ben Foster

Shia LaBeouf attended the opening performance of the Broadway play Orphans on Tuesday night, despite having been fired from the play around a month earlier. ‘How supportive and mature of him,’ you may be thinking. Well… not quite. This is Shia LaBeouf, we’re talking about here – you know, the former child actor who hasn’t quite managed to shake off the whole ‘spoilt brat’ thing that most child actors have? No, it turns out that Shia went to the effort of sitting through the entire performance of Orphans, just to make a highly sarcastic gesture at the end, thumping the stage with over-exaggerated enthusiasm as his replacement, Ben Foster, took a bow. Bitter? Um, yes, just a touch, it seems. 

Shia LaBeouf
The cast that never was...

According to a report from New York Times, La Beouf appeared to be at the show alone and sat on the front row, on the aisle. He left his seat during the interval but returned for the second half. At the curtain call, Shia was the first audience member to stand, jumping to his feet “before any other audience member to give a standing ovation at the end.” As Foster took a bow, his predecessor “rapped his palm on the stage.” He left soon after.

'The Company You Keep' Has Hallmarks Of An Oscar Contender (Trailer & Pictures)


Robert Redford Shia LaBeouf Stanley Tucci Julie Christie Susan Sarandon Terrence Howard Anna Kendrick Nick Nolte

Robert Redford appears to be back on track. Some five years after his disappointing drama 'Lions For Lambs', the Oscar winning director has returned to similar territory with 'The Company You Keep,' a slick looking drama starring an all-star cast. And when we say all-star cast, we really do mean it.

Stanley Tucci as Ray Fuller & Shia LaBeuouf as Ben Shepard In The Company You Keep

Redford stars and directs in the story of Jim Grant, a public interest lawyer and single father living in New York. Shia LaBeouf plays a scruffy intrepid journalist who exposes Grant as a man wanted for a murder he allegedly committed in his days as an anti-war radical. When another member of the Weather Underground - played by Susan Sarandon - is arrested, LaBeouf's Ben Shepard smells an opportunity to make a name for himself with a national story. The superb Stanley Tucci plays his prickly finger-pointing editor (is it us, or was he born to play a prickly finger-pointing editor?) while the excellent Anna Kendrick plays a vulnerable FBI agent. Elsewhere, there's a gruff looking Nick Nolte, the old-hand Richard Jenkins and legendary western actor Sam Elliott. Oh, and there's Brendan Gleeson. And Terrence Howard. And Julie Christie.

Ben Shepard is a young and ambitious reporter determined to make a name for himself in the media world. When Sharon Solarz, a member of the radical left organisation Weather Underground, is arrested for her involvement in a bank robbery and subsequent murder 30 years ago, Ben smells an important story that could be his big break. Meanwhile, attorney Jim Grant, a single father of an 11-year-old daughter named Isabel who was also involved in the crime, is forced on the run from the FBI as Ben sparks a new manhunt, but on the way he changes course in an effort to expose the truth and prove his innocence. Ben discovers that the whole story is more complicated than he initially thought, particularly as not everyone appears to be who they say they are.

Shia LaBeouf Quits Broadway Play, Actor Was ‘Incompatible’ With Alec Baldwin


Shia LaBeouf Alec Baldwin Tom Sturridge

Shia LaBeouf quits Broadway play after a week of rehearsals? We can’t say we’re too surprised. The actor was to play Treat in a revival of Lyle Kessler’s 1983 play Orphans, however, it appears he ran into difficulties with co-star Alec Baldwin, who himself has had a rough week after being accused of racist slurs by the New York Post. It’s bad news for LaBeouf fans who had already snapped up tickets for the Transformers star’s Broadway debut when they were made available two days ago, though the nature of his exit looks complex.

On Wednesday, LaBeouf – who allegedly dropped acid for his turn in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman - took to Twitter to post a series of emails to and from members of the creative team. One from the director Daniel Sullivan appears to hint at artistic tensions between LaBeouf and Baldwin, both hot-headed yet talented performers. “I'm too old for disagreeable situations,” Sullivan wrote, “You're one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it.” Sullivan appears to suggest Shia tried to dissuade him from putting him in the production, saying, “This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn't get it.”

In an email to both Baldwin and Sullivan, LaBeouf apologizes for his role in the situation, saying, “A man can tell you that he was wrong. That he did wrong. That he planned to. He can tell you when he is lost. He can apologise, even if it's just to put an end to the bickering.” The correspondence paints a picture of a tense and frosty atmosphere on the set of the play, which is set to open at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in the spring. The production’s official website still features a banner with Baldwin, LaBeouf and the British actor Tom Sturridge.

Not Even Acid Can Save Shia LaBeouf's 'The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman'


Shia LaBeouf

It seems most of the publicity for Shia LaBeouf's 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman' has focused squarely on the lead actor's drug taking in preparation for a scene in the movie. At Sundance this week, LaBeouf confirmed he dropped acid for a sequence in which his character Charlie is tripping on LSD.

The movie - by newcomer Fredrik Bond - follows the story of a young American who travels to Eastern Europe with no plans or ambitions. He lands in Romania, a place more foreign than he could have ever imagined. Charlie finds himself pursuing an equally lost girl named Gabi, a mysterious woman with a dark past. The film generated plenty of buzz at Sundance, though after wading through the tales of acid and method acting, is The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman really that necessary?

The critics don't think so.

Forget Stars Wars' Future: What Happens To Indiana Jones?


Steven Spielberg Shia LaBeouf Harrison Ford

With speculation about forthcoming Star Wars movies reaching boiling point, we think it's time to sit back, take a breath, and ask, "WHAT ABOUT INDIANA JONES?" As has been widely reported, George Lucas has handed over his brainchild LucasFilm to Disney for a cool $4 billion, with the studio giant signalling itself intention to go ahead and make further the Stars Wars saga.

Of course, the sci-fi franchise will be Disney's main priority in terms of what they've got for their money, but they now own the rights to Indiana Jones too, which has pulled in nearly $1.9 million at the domestic box office. Despite scathing reviews, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull still pulled in $786.6 million in 2008, proving demand for the franchise is anything but dead. Disney already had two hugely popular Indiana theme parks, the Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland in California and the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando. On paper, a new movie appears to be a no-brainer, though things are a little more complicated in reality. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Disney chief Bob Iger said there were "some encumbrances" to monetizing Indiana Jones and Steven Spielberg isn't exactly jumping at the chance to direct adventure-action films at the moment. During a recent interview in promotion of his Lincoln biopic, he explained, "I knew I could do the action in my sleep. At this point in my career, in my life, the action doesn't hold any - it doesn't attract me anymore." Should Lincoln go on to win Golden Globes and Oscars, we could probably rule a new Indiana Jones movie out, straight away.

Video - Shia LaBeouf And Robert Redford Hit The Red Carpet For The Company You Keep Premiere


'The Company You Keep' star Shia LaBeouf, director Robert Redford and his wife Sibylle Szaggars are snapped on the red carpet for the movie's premiere at Italy's 69th Venice Film Festival.

LaBeouf is also starring in the new true-story based Western 'Lawless' in which he plays Jack Bondurant; the youngest, smartest and most reserved of a set of outlaw brothers. That's not to mention the upcoming erotic drama 'Nymphomaniac' in which LaBeouf insists will contain 'real' sex scenes. 'Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images', he insisted after revealing the disclaimer on his script

Lawless Review


Extraordinary
Director Hillcoat and musician-turned-screenwriter Cave previously worked together back home in Australia on the dark Western The Proposition, and now they have reunited in America for this true story set during Prohibition in the early 1930s. Unsurprisingly, it plays out like a Western. And it also features two of The Proposition's memorable actors, Pearce and Taylor.

The story centres on the three Bondurant brothers in rural Virginia. Eldest sibling Forrest (Hardy) runs the family moonshine business with middle brother Howard (Clarke). But the younger Jack (LaBeouf) wants in on the action and secretly teams up with whiz-kid Cricket (DeHaan) to speed up production and sell their wares to a big-city gangster (Oldman). Then slimy city-slicker Federal Agent Rakes (Pearce) arrives, determined to stop bootlegging no matter who he has to torture and kill. Meanwhile, a sexy barmaid (Chastain) with a shady past arrives to distract Forrest, while Jack daringly woos the rebellious daughter (Wasikowska) of the local preacher.

Continue reading: Lawless Review

Lawless Trailer


The Bondurant Brothers, Forrest, Howard and Jack, take up lawless methods of achieving the American Dream during the Depression in Franklin County, Virginia. Soon their illegal money-making schemes, including selling their home brewed moonshine in their saloon, attract the attention of the local law enforcement who recruit a corrupt inner-city cop, Charlie Rakes, to break the brothers and force them to give him shares in their profits. In an attempt to gain his brothers' respect and win the heart of the pure and well brought up Bertha who seeks danger and excitement, the suggestible and smart Jack partners with the brutal and, quite frankly, untrustworthy city gangster Floyd Banner - things start to become strained for the Bondurants when the 'indestructible' Forrest is seriously injured and loyalty among the brothers is questioned.

Video - Nick Simmons: Gene Simmons Not Performing At Michael Jackson Tribute


Actor and reality TV star Nick Simmons (Gene Simmons Family Jewels), son of KISS rocker Gene Simmons, leaves the screening of the Shia LeBeouf short film 'Born Villains', promoting the upcoming Marilyn Manson album of the same name.

When asked about why his dad would not be performing at the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute concert, Nick replies that it was probably his dad's beliefs about the child molestation charges against the late King of Pop being the likely cause; he maintains that he doesn't believe the charges against Michael Jackson based on what was said across the media

Video - Jon Hamm Talks About Nicki Minaj's VMA's Dress


'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm (The Town; The Day The Earth Stood Still; Sucker Punch) leaves the Silent Movie Theater after attending a private screening of Shia LeBeouf directed 'Born Villains', a short film promoting Marilyn Manson's new album of the same name.

The actor, who plays Don Draper in the hit AMC show, comments on rapper Nicki Minaj's eye-catching dress that she wore to the VMA's recently as he walks home. Jon can next be seen in the upcoming comedy 'Friends With Kids', which also stars 'Bridesmaids' star Kristen Wiig and 'Transformers' beauty Megan Fox

Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon Trailer


When man first landed on the moon over 40 years ago, their journey was well documented and broadcast on the TV around the world, what we weren't to know was the details of a secret mission the astronauts carried out on the 'dark side of the moon'. What they discovered was beyond their belief, evidence that we're not alone in the universe.

Disturbia Review


Very Good
Disturbia is a critically vulnerable film at the outset. Its task is an audacious one: "YouTubing" Hitchcock. Who isn't disturbed by the prospect of D.J. Caruso (Taking Lives!) helming a Rear Window rip-off for the MySpace generation? In the role of Jimmy Stewart: The talented if somewhat untested Shia LeBeouf. Grace Kelly: Sarah Roemer, a bit player in the woeful The Grudge 2. Gulp. Instead of a telescope, we get about four sets of binoculars, video cameras, mobile phones, and some outrageously sophisticated computer surveillance equipment. Instead of the poignantly crafted Miss Lonelyheart and the frustrated composer of Hitchcock's film, the neighbourhood offers for our voyeuristic pleasures the bikini-clad girl next door and a group of prepubescents with a penchant for porn. There is so much wrong before the film has even begun.

The film's beginning will not allay your fears. Kale (LaBeouf) and his dad (Matt Craven) are fishing. Knee-deep in a lake and surrounded by mountains, they share a particularly cheesy father-son moment. We see that he's not just Kale's father, he is his friend. The relationship is so clichéd and the setting so cloyingly idyllic, that one wants to run for the (admittedly beautiful-looking) hills. However, before you go to switch off the Hallmark channel, Caruso offs the dad in a car accident just brutal enough to forgive what came before and dissolve some preconceptions. It's a pretty good move (although not quite Janet Leigh in the Bates Motel shower) and sets us up for a film that effectively handles and plays its audience.

Bobby Review


Bad
Filmmakers go overboard all the time, but none more than Oliver Stone. When Stone released JFK in 1991, it was obvious that he was pulling from a biased idealism, but he wasn't necessarily fibbing either. The cumulative effect of Stone's film was investigative fervor; even if you didn't believe the bulk of what was being given, you had to be shocked by a few of his points. The film was about looking back, but it was also about the hushed panic of the Kennedy assassination and the rest of the '60s. So, maybe going overboard was important to what Stone was after.

You won't find any sort of rabblerousing or sense of time in Emilio Estevez's Bobby, his account of the people that were in attendance when Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel. Estevez tosses together close to two dozen major characters and storylines along with footage of RFK campaigning against racism, America's poverty, and unlawful McCarthy tactics. The stories run the gamut from a young couple (Elijah Wood and Lindsay Lohan) getting hitched to keep the groom out of the war to an alcoholic diva (Demi Moore) and her forgotten husband (Estevez himself) to a philandering hotel manager (William H. Macy) who must keep his affair with a switchboard operator (Heather Graham) from his wife (Sharon Stone) and from an infuriated ex-employee (Christian Slater). There's also a pack of poll campaigners (Nick Cannon, Joshua Jackson, Shia Labeouf, and Brian Geraghty) who must deal with an acid freak out facilitated by a hippie (Ashton Kutcher), a pushy Czech journalist (Svetlana Metkina), and a flirty waitress at the hotel restaurant (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Sounds like the makings of an ensemble comedy, no?

Continue reading: Bobby Review

Constantine Review


Very Good
How's this for a story premise: God made a pact with the Devil that none of their minions - angels and demons - would ever cross over from the ethereal planes of Heaven and Hell into the human plane. But occasionally, the minions break the rules, and it's up to supernatural hero John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) to "deport" them to Hell as punishment.

Pretty badass, right? Definitely. Deep and meaningful? Hardly. This is a violent and apocalyptic story, based loosely on the Hellblazer graphic novels by comic book legend Alan Moore. And much to the relief of comic book fanboys everywhere, this adaptation adheres to the heavy, religious-war foundational spirit of Moore's work.
