Shia LaBeouf To Live Alone In Finnish Log Cabin For Next Art Project


Shia LaBeouf

Following the troubles surrounding his controversial art installation designed to protest Donald Trump’s administration, Shia LaBeouf is planning something a lot more low-key for his next art project – by exiling himself entirely.

For the next month, the actor-turned-performance artist will be living completely by himself in a log cabin in the remote Lapland region of Finland, with his only form of communication with the outside world coming via text messages to visitors of a museum in the country’s capital city, Helsinki.

The project is entitled #ALONETOGETHER, and is being undertaken with his art collective colleagues Luke Turner and Nastja Ronkko. Having begun on Wednesday (April 12th), the trio will be living in separate cabins in Finland, according to the Associated Press.

Shia LaBeouf's New Film 'Man Down' Takes Just £7 At UK Box Office


Shia LaBeouf Kate Mara Gary Oldman Jai Courtney

As if the constant misfortune that has been surrounding his anti-Donald Trump art installation wasn’t enough, Shia LaBeouf’s reputation has taken another hit with the news that his latest war movie, Man Down, took just £7 at the British box offices last weekend.

That’s right – the single-figure sum made by the film means that just one person paid to see Man Down over the weekend.

Shia LaBeouf's Anti-Donald Trump Art Installation Moves To Liverpool


Shia LaBeouf

Having endured a troubled start to life, Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Donald Trump art installation ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ has re-located from America altogether because of safety concerns, finding a new home in Liverpool.

The project is now to be housed at the British city’s Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) Gallery, after events in New York and Albuquerque showed “that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist”, according to a new statement from the Hollywood star’s artistic group LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner.

The installation was originally located on a wall outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, and debuted back on January 20th, the day of the controversial Trump’s inauguration as president.

Shia LaBeouf's Anti-Trump Installation Shut Again After Gunshots Fired


Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Donald Trump art installation has been shut down for a second time in less than two weeks, on this occasion over public safety issues after gunshots were allegedly fired in the area.

The increasingly eccentric 30 year old actor set up the #HeWillNotDivideUs at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York, on the day of Trumps’ inauguration as president back in January. However, it quickly became a focal point for trouble as pro- and anti-Trump protestors were increasingly coming to blows.

Shia LaBeouf's Anti-Trump Installation Shut Down By Museum


Shia LaBeouf Donald Trump

Shia LaBeouf’s art installation protesting against Donald Trump has been shut down by the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City, where the project was being hosted.

For the past three weeks since President Trump was inaugurated back on January 20th, a permanent livestream outside the museum in Queens encouraged participants to stand in front of a camera and say the words ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ for as long as they want.

It was the latest real-life art project launched by LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, which has engaged in headline-grabbing stunts since 2014. However, it has now been closed by the Moving Image for reasons of “ongoing public safety” issues.

Shia LaBeouf Arrested At His Anti-Donald Trump Art Installation


Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf has reportedly been arrested and charged with assault and harassment at the site of his permanent protest against the new president Donald Trump this week, in circumstances that are not particularly clear.

The 30 year old actor, who has been in the headlines more frequently for his series of life-as-art projects than his actual movies in recent years, was handcuffed and led away by police on Wednesday evening (January 25th).

Reportedly, this happened a few hours after a 13-second video was released of LaBeouf shoving a man who addressed the camera with the words ‘Hitler did nothing wrong’, which was seen on the Twitter feed for #HeWillNotDivideUs, the name of LaBeouf’s permanent art installation in Queens, New York City.

Why Shia LaBeouf Is Quickly Becoming Our Favourite Underdog


Shia LaBeouf

We've felt for a few months now that Shia LaBeouf is really turning things around for himself. He's no longer the booze-swigging, plagiarizing attention-seeker that he was back in 2014, he's developed into an altruistic artist with a strong moral compass, and he's someone to learn from.

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf is turning things around this year

Many people rolled their eyes when he appeared to shade Steven Spielberg in an interview with Variety back in September, but that's nothing when you consider what the rest of his confessional told us about him. Since he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at Broadway's 'Cabaret' in 2014, he has given up alcohol.

We Had No Idea Shia LaBeouf Could Freestyle Like That


Shia LaBeouf

If you're one of those people who find Shia LaBeouf perpetually annoying, prepare to reluctantly like him a little from now on. He appeared on the radio show Sway's Universe and delivered one of the most kickass freestyles we've ever heard from a non-professional rapper.

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf has got a mean flow

The 'American Honey' star proved he had a mean flow when Sway Calloway challenged him to a freestyle session in a special edition of the show's popular segment '5 Fingers of Death', with beats provided by Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Missy Elliott.

Shia LaBeouf and long time girlfriend Mia Goth have reportedly married in an Elvis-themed Las Vegas wedding.

American Honey Trailer


Star is fed up with her current way of life; she's a teenager with her whole life ahead of her and no prospects coming her way in her current hometown. Setting out on the road, Star begins to have ideas about hitchhiking away from her troubled life and is approached by Jake, a carefree guy who travels state to state selling magazine subscriptions.

Jake isn't alone, he journeys with a team of fellow youth whom are part of a 'mag crew', who like Star, are running away from home for one reason or another. Jake tells Star about the crew and what they do; he tells her how the crew go door to door selling magazines whilst also exploring America and partying at night. This 'a business opportunity' is too good for Star to resist.

Speaking with Krystal, the only proviso for joining the crew seems to be that if she has no one to miss her, she's good to join. Life on the road begins as Jake explained, the small gang sells hard during the day and drink and party just as hard at night.

Shia LaBeouf Left 'American Honey' With Two Missy Elliott Tattoos Thanks To "Peer Pressure"


Shia LaBeouf Missy Elliott

Shia LaBeouf says he was 'peer pressured' into getting two tattoos of hip-hop star Missy Elliott during the filming of new movie American Honey. The actor said that during the making of the road trip movie the cast would frequently visit the local tattoo parlours, leaving him with 12 new inkings in total.

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf now has two tattoos of Missy Elliott

“One of the things we’d do as a group, we’d all go to the f***ing tattoo shop,” LaBeouf told Variety. The frequent visits meant he ended up getting 12 tattoos during the filming, which drove director Andrea Arnold crazy because she didn’t want him showing up looking different in every scene.

'American Honey' Starring Shia LaBeouf Leaves Critics Intrigued At Cannes 2016


Shia LaBeouf

There were some who expressed pity for Shia LaBeouf when the actor revealed that he was going to watch all of his movies back to back, but it's just a shame it happened before this gem. For if anything could end a journey like that on a high note, it's 'American Honey'; an intense drama that has gripped most critics upon its opening at Cannes Film Festival 2016.

American Honey castAmerican Honey was generally a Cannes success

In summary, this comedic road-trip drama directed by the Academy Award winning Andrea Arnold (of 'Fish Tank' and 'Wuthering Heights' fame) has been praised for its cast, its vitality and its focus on feelings rather than story. Conversely, it has been attacked for its lack of plot, lengthiness and even naivete.

Shia LaBeouf

Right now, Shia LaBeouf is very easy to track down. Since yesterday, he’s been engaged in a three-day movie marathon watching every single film he’s ever starred in, sitting in the Angelika Film Center in New York alongside anybody who wishes to join him.

The project, entitled #ALLMYMOVIES, is another of the living art installations he’s made alongside conceptual artists Luke Turner and Nastja Sade Ronkko.

Shia LaBeouf Attempts To Explain Drunken 'Cabaret' Arrest


Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf is known to behave rather bizarrely at times, but the oddest thing he may have ever done was getting himself arrested in June for drunkenly interrupting a performance of Broadway's 'Cabarat,' where he began "acting up" by smoking cigarettes inside the building and grabbing the butts of several actors.

Shia LaBeouf has pleaded guilty to being a general nuisance at a Broadway show in which he lit up cigarettes and yelled at the actors on-stage.

After witness reports that Shia LaBeouf had checked himself into rehab, the actor’s rep has set the record straight.

Shia LaBeouf's Almost-Fight In NYC Falls Perfectly In Line With His Chaotic Image


Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf just can’t catch a break from public embarrassment, it seems. Recently, the Nymphomaniac actor was involved in a brawl outside a Cabaret show in Broadway. It has now come to light that a week earlier, he was causing trouble in a slightly less cultured setting – outside a strip club in New York City. The incident was captured on video and subsequently published by the folks at TMZ.

Shia LaBeouf
The video is just the latest in a string of bizzare behaviour from LaBeouf.

In the video, LaBeouf can be seen bouncing around in the street, seemingly waiting to start a fist fight with another man. Another man, apparently the actor’s bodyguard, stands between them. The fight never actually gets going, since LaBeouf walks away after a brief verbal exchange. However, this isn’t the first instance of bizarre behavior from the former Disney actor in recent months.

Full-Length 'Nymphomaniac' Trailer: Sex, Fire, Whips, Guns, Confessions And Rammstein [Trailer]


Charlotte Gainsbourg Shia LaBeouf Uma Thurman Willem Dafoe Lars Von Trier Stacy Martin

The full-length trailer has finally been released for the Lars Von Trier two-part erotic drama, Nymphomaniac. The Danish director has teased for months with promotional posters for the movie showing cast members' faces in the throes of sexual pleasure.

Nymphomaniac Poster
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Shia LaBeouf, Stacy Martin & Jamie Bell Star In 'Nymphomaniac.'

Written and directed by the somewhat infamously controversial Von Trier ('Antichrist,' 'Melancholia'), the film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, a woman found beaten in an alley by Stellan Skarsgard's Seligman. Joe attends group therapy sessions after self-diagnosing as a nymphomaniac; a sex addict. Seligman looks after Joe and she tells him her life story, including her sexual experiences.

'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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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

'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

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?

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.

Continue reading: Constantine Review

Holes Review


Weak
In certain literary circles, the ones that meet during fourth-period study hall, Louis Sachar's Newberry Award-winning Holes has replaced the Harry Potter series as the hip new read. No wonder, since the novel introduces readers to a gaggle of misfit teens who hide behind self-inflicted nicknames like X-Ray (for his thick eye glasses) and Armpit (for his distinctive odor) and are characterized by their rebellious attitude towards authority.

Sachar's antihero is Stanley Yelnats IV (Shia LaBeouf), an affable but luckless teen who's accused of a crime he did not commit and ordered to serve his sentence at Camp Green Lake, a Texas labor camp that's neither green nor near any lake.

A rare kids' flick that engages youthful intellect and heart instead of patting youngsters on the head and spoon-feeding them stock anecdotes and tie-in toys, "Holes" is a fun family flick with a manifold plot about a smart, quiet teenager who gets the fate-fueled chance to reverse his family's hereditary bad luck.

It seems a curse was put the great-great-grandfather of curly-headed moppet Stanley Yelnats (Shia LaBeouf), and the trickle-down effect has landed the kid at a parched, ghost-town-like juvenile rehabilitation center in West Texas -- ironically called Camp Green Lake -- for a crime he didn't commit.

The venomous Warden (Sigorney Weaver, delighting in the role's sneering, sinister qualities) has a strange idea for building character in her charges: the boys spend every single day digging five-foot-deep holes in the dry lakebed. Her policies are enforced by the Mr. Sir, a classically menacing, beer-bellied, bow-legged figure played by Jon Voight in a scene-stealing standout performance. Sporting a graying Elvis pompadour, a villain's pencil mustache, twitchy wild eyes, and a low-slung holster, he's the kind of baddie who makes you giggle while making your skin crawl too, as he squints in the faces of potential escapees and seethes that in the desert "the buzzards'll pick ya clean by the end of the third day."
