Nervous laughter is the only way to approach the Danny Brown and Jonah Hill's 'Ain't It Funny' video.
Detroit Rapper Danny Brown has just unveiled a disturbing yet strangely hilarious new music video for his latest single 'Ain't It Funny', directed by none other than Jonah Hill. The song is from his critically acclaimed fourth album 'Atrocity Exhibition' which was released last year.
Danny Brown unveils 'Ain't It Funny' video
The video for 'Ain't It Funny' is set like a traditional 80s sitcom on a fictional channel called The Religious Values Network. It features a family of five; the mother, the father, the little brat brother, the older daughter and the uncle. Danny Brown plays the crack-smoking Uncle whose problem no-one takes any notice of.

Based on a rather astounding true story, this comedy-drama centres on two stoners who landed a massive defence contract with the American government to sell arms for the War on Terror. The story is told with a heavy dose of macho swagger by The Hangover's Todd Phillips, which makes it entertaining even as it dodges the heavier themes the plot is raising. It's also set in a world where smugness is an asset and women are irrelevant.
It begins in 2005 Miami, where David (Miles Teller) is working as a masseur and living happily with his girlfriend Iz (Ana de Armas). Then he runs into his old school friend Efraim (Jonah Hill), who convinces him that there's money to be made selling weapons to the US military. Over the next few years, the business expands dramatically, bringing in a fortune as David and Efraim travel into Iraq to see their deals through. Then they land a massive new contract that involves working with a rather dodgy supplier (Bradley Cooper) and processing the arms in Albania. But as they start bending the law to maximise their profits, things start to fall apart.
Phillips tells this with a quick step and a twinkle in his eye, zipping through the events with masculine energy, filling scenes with black humour as the business gets murkier. Hill and Teller make a terrific team, using their impeccable comic timing to make every scene zing. They are also excellent at bringing out the contrasts between David and Efraim: David tries to do things right, Efraim has no moral compass. And their differing approaches to cross-cultural situations are telling as well. Many of their conflicts seem scripted for movie purposes, but they're so well-played that we don't mind too much. By comparison, the supporting cast kind of fades into the background. Cooper grabs attention in a seriously oddball role, while de Armas is completely sidelined as the only person with a conscience.

The actor says he spent seven months snorting the fake coke nearly every day while filming the movie.
Jonah Hill has revealed he ended up in hospital during the filming of the Wolf of Wall Street after ingesting too much fake cocaine. The actor starred as Donnie Azoff in the 2014 Martin Scorsese film and spent a lot of his screen time snorting the fake powder.
Jonah Hill pretty much overdosed on fake cocaine during Wolf Of Wall Street filming
Speaking on Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons Hill said: “I had to be hospitalised. If you ingest that much matter into your lungs you’ll get very sick, and we were literally doing fake coke for, like, seven months, every day.

Their relationship kind of reflected that of Efraim and David.
In the new comedy-drama War Dogs, Jonah Hill and Miles Teller play childhood friends who meet up again in their late 20s and go into business as arms dealers. Since it's based on a true story, both actors were keen to dive into the roles.
Jonah Hill and Miles Teller star in War Dogs
Hill says he was aware of the story from a Rolling Stone article, but found out that The Hangover director Todd Phillips had already bought the rights. "So I reached out to him," Hill says. "And I said, 'If you ever make a movie out of this, I'd love to talk about playing Efraim because he is one bizarre, messed-up character.' I was just really attracted to how insane the story was and that the characters were people my age doing these insane things."
Teller agrees that the characters' age was a key factor in his interest in the role. "I think that these guys' youth kind of gave them a certain feeling that maybe they didn't have as much to lose," he says. "It's rare to get a script for guys in their 20s that are actually doing things with big responsibility or a more mature tone. And I was excited to play the straight guy who actually has more of a moral compass. Those aren't always the parts you're getting."

'The Wolf Of Wall Street' pair ran into each other in New York.
It seems celebrities are just as easily amused as your average Joe, as proven by Leonardo Dicaprio in a recent paparazzi video. He was seen playing a spur-of-the-moment prank on his good friend and former co-star Jonah Hill in New York the other day, while out with his entourage.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill reunite in New York
'The Revenant' star Leonardo DiCaprio decided to trick his fellow actor when he spotted him standing alone outside a bookstore on Monday (August 1st 2016). In footage taken by paparazzi, he is is seen noticing Jonah Hill in the street and running up to him with his phone out pretending to be a fan.

An intelligent ode to a time when Hollywood made wildly inventive movies without pressure from focus groups, there's a serious edge to what superficially looks like a madcap comical romp. But this isn't one of Joel and Ethan Coen's nutty comedies. It's a pointed exploration of the collision between art and commerce, assembled as a sprawlingly entertaining ensemble movie packed with lively, often hilarious characters.
It's set over 24 hours at Capitol Pictures in 1951 as studio minder Eddie (Josh Brolin) tries to keep several movies in production despite a series of hitches, while twin gossip columnists (two Tilda Swintons) try to get a scoop. Top movie star Baird (George Clooney) has been kidnapped by communist writers from the set of his Roman epic. Water-ballet diva DeeAnna (Scarlett Johansson) is pregnant and unapologetically unmarried. And rising-star Hobie (Alden Ehrenreich) is struggling to make the transition from Western action hero to chamber room drama, clashing with his demanding new director Laurence (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, song-and-dance man Burt (Channing Tatum) is up to something on the set of his sailor musical. With all of this, Eddie begins to think that maybe he should take the offer of a job outside the film industry.
As the movie darts between these various productions, the Coens gleefully reinvent this series of genres that have essentially died out. Yes, the film is a pointed depiction of how Hollywood used to make a wide array of movies for much broader audiences. Each sequence is written and directed with witty details that perfectly catch the way the chaos of a film set can be transformed into a glamorous motion picture in time for the starry red-carpet premiere. And the entire cast rises to the challenge. Clooney is terrific as the dim-witted star who hasn't a clue what's happening around him. Ehrenreich shows real charm as a smart kid struggling in an insane situation. Brolin holds things together in a surprisingly sympathetic role, while Swinton, Johansson and Fiennes add plenty of spark, and the film is stolen by Frances McDormand as a spiky film editor.

Ever since his wonderful appearance in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, we've been waiting for Ralph Fiennes to take up a similar role that shows a completely different side to the actor, now it looks like the Coen Brothers have given the actor such a role. Laurence Lorenz is an eccentric film director who finds himself caught up in a fiasco when Hollywood superstar Baird Whitlock is kidnapped.

It worked with 'Wolf', so why not combine again?
The strange and intriguing story of Richard Jewell, who both foiled an Olympic bomb plot and became suspected of planting it soon after, is to be translated to the big screen as The Wolf of Wall Street stars, Leonardo Dicaprio and Jonah Hill combine once more.
Leo and Jonah are combining once again
The Centennial Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia would become the start of a tumultuous time for the press officer, who, having discovered a backpack stuffed with three pipe bombs, alerted police and aided evacuation of the area saving hundreds of lives. Jewell was a hero.

Jonah and Leo got cosy on 'SNL,' the internet loved it.
The Grammy Awards may have dominated the entertainment news from the weekend but one story is refusing to die down. Jonah Hill and Leonardo Dicaprio has Saturday Night Live audiences in stitches last Saturday when the Wolf of Wall Street co-stars decided to re-enact the iconic prow scene from Titanic. Hill returned to SNL on the 25th January to host the show for the third time.
Leonardo DiCaprio & Jonah Hill Showed How Close They've Become Since Filming 'TWOWS.'
With the comedy actor's newly found Oscar-nominated star power, his hosting alone would have probably been enough for the enthusiastic crowd but when DiCaprio dropped by, interrupting Hill mid-flow in his intro speech, excitement was sent into overdrive. "Honestly, my whole life feels like a dream come true right now," Hill said in his opening monologue. "Between 'Moneyball' and 'Wolf of Wall Street' and getting nominated for my second Academy Award, I just couldn't be more grateful."

[Video] Jonah Hill hosted 'SNL' for the third time, acting like Hollywood's biggest hot shot, but his 'Wolf of Wall Street' co-star Leonardo DiCaprio was onhand to bring the 30 year-old back down to earth.
Jonah Hill made is return to the set of 'Saturday Night Live' this past Saturday (Jan 25th), but he didn't come alone.
The 30 year-old was hosting the comedy show for the third time but was feeling very confident of himself after earning an Academy Award nomination for 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

Hill was paid $60,000 for his role in 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' but he isn't alone in taking one in the wallet for the sake of art
Jonah Hill has made headlines recently after it was revealed he was paid just $60,000 for his Oscar-nominated role in The Wolf of Wall Street. Now, $60,000 is a lot of money to a lot of people, but in the world of Hollywood actors and their big pay cheques, Hill was paid pitance for his work. Still, he is not the only one to take a pay cut for the sake of the project paying them.
Jonah Hill is apparently nothing like his character in Donnie Azoff
Hill decided to take a pay cut, from the usual 6-7 figure digit he tends to receive, because he was so determined to get the part of Donnie Azoff so he could work with the director of the project, Martin Scorsese. By putting his dreams first and his bank account last, Hill has received his second Oscar nomination to date and has been roundly praised by critics for his role. What's more , Hill isn't alone in taking one for the team and opting out of a big pay cheque for the sake of the project he's appearing in.

Jonah Hill offered his services in 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' for the minimum amount of money, but ended up earning an Oscar nomination.
Ironically, in film about greed, money and living to the excess, Jonah Hill was paid relatively little for his role.
The 30 year-old portrays stock broker Donnie Azoff in Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf Of Wall Street', and has earned an Oscar-nomination for his work.
But the quality of Hill's services came at a surprisingly cheap price, he revealed his pay check was only $60,000.

We know, we know - but 60K's not actually a lot for an A-list Hollywood lead role.
Jonah Hill may play one of the characters motivated by money in Martin Scorsese's new comedy, The Wolf of Wall Street, but the actor is real-life is apparently far less avaricious. The film star has revealed that he wanted the part of Donnie Azoff in the movie so much that he hounded co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, threatened to commit murder if anyone else got the part and accepted a pretty paltry (well, in Hollywood terms) salary of $60,000 (£36,000).
Jonah Hill Accepted A Smaller Salary For His Dream Role In 'The Wolf Of Wall Street.'
For an A-list actor who could probably comfortably demand millions for a lead role in such a prominent film, 60K is a notably low sum - minimum wage if you're a Hollywood hot-shot. The 22 Jump Street star just wanted to show Scorsese and the makers of The Wolf of Wall Street that he so badly wanted the role, he'd accept a lower-than-usual sum for a performance for which he has now been nominated for an Oscar.

An actor's minimum wage? A measly $60k - that's all
Jonah Hill’s character in The Wolf of Wall Street – the ridiculous Donnie Azoff – is a man whose bad taste never outguns his monumental salary. Drugs, alcohol, £3,000 Armani suits and fast cars don’t dent the hefty bank balance he accumulated via stock market manipulation and the penny stock boiler room that was Stratton Oakmont.
Jonah Hill playing the money game as Donnie Azoff - also, eating a fish
But Hill’s real-life paystub paled in insignificance to Azoff’s in Scorsese’s controversial black comedy. The star was so enthusiastic to work with the legendary director, he took a huge pay cut to get the role. And when we say minimum wage, we’re talking about an actor’s minimum wage…

At age 71, Martin Scorsese proves with this riotous romp that he's one of the most energetic, audacious filmmakers working in America at the moment. And with his long-time 74-year-old editor Thelma Schoonmaker, he has created one of the most entertaining cautionary tales in recent memory. Not only does it highlight an unruly period in banking history, but it has a lot to say about where we are now.
This is the true story of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), who was 21 when he got his first job on Wall Street in the rough-and-tumble 1980s. Thanks to his illicit deals, he was a multi-millionaire within five years, tutored by a jaded veteran (McConaughey) and assisted by an enthusiastic novice (Hill). Along the way, he also swaps for a much more glamorous wife (Robbie), whose British aunt (Lumley) becomes part of his scam to stash his cash with a shady Swiss banker (Dujardin). But with an FBI agent (Chandler) on his trail, Jordan suspects that the high life can't go on forever.
At just under three hours long, the film sometimes feels like it is wallowing in the excessive sex and drugs along with these Wall Street criminals. But there's a jagged undercurrent to everything: all of this hedonism may look like fun, but someone is paying the price. The film is an often thrilling series of set-pieces that roll out in waves of comedy, tragedy and farce as these people play on the edge of an abyss. And it's great to see scenes play out in real time, with deep conversations, riotous comedy riffs and characters who are full of conflicting layers.

Don't worry, these clips are totally safe for work. Put headphones on, though.
If you haven’t seen The Wolf of Wall Street, because a) you don’t live in America or b) the violently abusive language has been well documented by the press, or even c) you can’t be bothered, then these clips might interest you. Well, apart from you b) folks, you can go **** a ******* **** can’t you.
Martin Scorsese’s indulgent white collar crime comedy drama sees Leonardo Dicaprio fill the boots of Jordan Belfort, a 90s stockbroker who spent 22 months in jail following the fraudulent activity in 1998.

It's a wild ride of drinking, drugs, debauchery and deception when the ambitious Jordan Belfort decides that he wants to be one of the rich kids. Starting out his stockbroker business in a small office with a handful of employees, his aims are simple; target only the richest people in the country. It isn't long before Belfort and his team find themselves with more money than they know what to do with and begin to live their lives manically high off the success. However, Belfort hasn't exactly been making what you'd call an honest living and pretty soon the secrets of his fraudulent profits and money laundering draws attention from the authorities. And not only that, his disregard for others' sufferings means he's got a lot more to lose than his beloved business.
'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a gritty white-collar crime drama based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, a former stockbroker who served 22 months in prison for his fraudulent activity in 1998 and subsequently wrote two memoirs entitled 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Catching the Wolf of Wall Street'. The new movie has been directed by the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') and written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules').
Tatum teams up with Jonah Hill for another shot at the cop comedy.
The red line trailer has just been released for new cop comedy 22 Jump Street, the sequel to 2012's commercially and critically successful 21 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will reprise their roles as Schmidt and Jenko, two undercover police officers who have another drug supplier to catch, only this time they've graduated from high school to college.
Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill Reprise Their Roles In This Comedy Cop Sequel.
"You two sons-a-bitches are going to college," we hear Ice Cube bark at Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the trailer before we see montages of the typical movie-ready university scenes: heavy drinking in the hallways, beer pong, sex, shared bathroom dilemmas and deadline library clashes - all with a sludgy hip-hop soundtrack. In no great leap of imagination, the former classmates have immersed themselves in varsity life.

Having successfully managed to nab the suppliers behind a new high school narcotic during their first stint in special division 21 Jump Street, young police officers Schmidt and Jenko are forced to return to college after moving to 22 Jump Street in order to bag the culprits behind another drug surge. There, it's a blur of debauchery, partying and drinking games as they wheedle their way into the different social circles in a bid to find the source of the new substance - even re-visiting some old perps in jail for information. However, their own professional partnership is compromised when they get mixed up in different college scenes and they have to decide if working together is right for them both in the long run.
'22 Jump Street' is the sequel to 2012's award-winning comedy '21 Jump Street' which is based on Stephen J. Cannell and Patrick Hasburgh's 1987 TV series of the same name. With directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs', 'Clone High') at the helm, it has been written by star Jonah Hill, Michael Bacall ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'), Rodney Rothman ('Late Show with David Letterman') and Oren Uziel ('Mortal Kombat: Rebirth'). It is set to be released in the UK on June 6th 2014.
Blacksmith apprentice Hiccup and his pet dragon Toothless have managed to end the war between the Vikings of Berk and the once predatory dragons after both rescuing each other from death. Now, five years on, instead of dragon fighting the islanders have taken up the new sport of dragon racing, with Hiccup and his classmates Astrid and Snoutlout becoming particularly adept at whizzing through the skies with their new winged friends. During one of their regular explorations, Hiccup and Toothless come across a secret ice cave in which they find a very large crowd of wild dragons alongside the strange and elusive Dragon Rider. Worried that they could be facing another terrible battle, the pair do their best to maintain peace among the fire-breathing beasts and the weapon wielding mankind.
Was it a quickie marriage or a complex plan to elude the media?
Celebrity relatives getting hitched, what could be more exciting? This weekend it was Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca Eastwood and Jonah Hill’s bro Jordan Feldstein got a quickie Vegas marriage last weekend, according to TMZ. The website bases this information on a photo of a marriage certificate with the pair’s names on it, dated November 17.
Is Miss Eastwood a Mrs now?
Oh and as a bit of added novelty, the gorgeous Eastwood and her new husband tied the knot at the Simple Wedding Chappel, which, among other things, offers Elvis impersonators as witnesses. According to the TMZ report, that’s all the information anyone (besides the newlyweds themselves, presumably) has at this point, with the two keeping mum about the whole thing. The website reports that Francesca was spotted out and about in Hollywood this week, sans wedding ring. But it could just be that the two are trying to be private about the affair… well, affair probably isn’t the right word at this point. But you get the idea - it was all very hush-hush.

Jordan Belfort started out his stockbroker business in a tiny office with a small group of people and had the intention of targeting only the richest people in America as their clientele. With such a small percentage of individuals lined up as hopeful patrons, their dreams of immense fortune and a life of luxury seemed embarrassingly unlikely. However, pretty soon the company starts to ooze more money than they can handle and it's parties, alcohol and women all round. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear to everyone that what Belfort was doing to earn his fortune is not entirely legal and he risks his freedom and his wealthy lifestyle when the FBI get involved.
'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a white-collar crime drama based on the two memoirs by the real Belfort, who was jailed in 1998 for a string of fraudulent offences including money laundering. The autobiographies have since been translated into 18 different languages and now the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') directs the screen adaptation which has been written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules'). The movie is set to be release on January 17th 2014.
The new Martin Scorsese film will be out on 25 December
Thanks to various intervening forces, the release date of Martin Scorsese's next picture - the Leonardo Dicaprio-starring The Wolf of Wall Street - has been in contention for some time now. At first, it was due out on 15 November, but was pushed back for an unspecified period, with some estimates putting it as far back as spring 2014. Fortunately, we'll only have to wait just over a month longer to see the film, when it is released on 25 December.
DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount decided on the new date after heads at the company saw a shortened version of the film, with the running time cut from 180 minutes to 165 minutes. The studio bosses had initially put back the release in order to give director Scorsese ample time to trim away some of the fat, and he apparently unveiled the finished product this week. Content with how the film played out despite missing a few scenes, they decided to okay the film and set a 2013 release, which will also put it in contention for next years awards season.

Comedies don't get much more self-referential than this film, in which a bunch of old friends get together and play themselves facing a biblical-style apocalypse. But they also don't get much funnier. Writing partners Rogen and Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) move into directing with this super-charged bromance that finds surprising resonance amid a constant barrage of vulgarity, in-jokes and end-of-the-world mayhem.
Rogen also stars as himself, happy that his childhood friend Jay is coming to visit him in Los Angeles. Jay prefers to live at home in Canada, far from the plastic L.A. scene, so Seth sets aside the first day with video games and lots of weed. Then they head to James' house for a starry Hollywood party, during which a series of massive earthquakes kills off most of the A-list guests. Seth, Jay and James survive, along with Jonah, Craig and Danny, and as they set up camp in James' mansion, their friendships are strained. Mainly because Danny eats their supply of food, Jay wants to go home, and Jonah is simply too nice to be believed. Until he's possessed by an angry demon.
The blinding array of cameos gives the film's early scenes a terrific kick, as big stars hilariously spoof their public personas before meeting a variety of fiery ends. An especially spiky Watson gets a few extra scenes of her own, while Cera has the most fun as a diva obsessed with sex and drugs. And Tatum gets the most jaw-dropping moment. But it's our six heroes who hold the film together, and their camaraderie adds a surprising warmth, most notably in the central bromance between Rogen and Baruchel.

The Wolf of Wall Street will surely become a major player during awards season.
Wow, this one looks pretty damn good doesn't it? The Wolf of Wall Street trailer, starring Leonardo Dicaprio as stockbroker Jordan Belfort, exploded onto the internet on Sunday (June 16, 2013) with tons of verve and energy. Directed by Martin Scorsese and based on Belfort's memoirs, the movie boasts a pretty stellar cast headed by DiCaprio and held firmly together by a particularly strong and funny looking performance from the excellent Matthew Mcconaughey.

New York stockbroker Belfort refused to cooperate in a large FBI fraud case involving corruption into corporate banking and mob infiltration, living a hard-partying lifestyle at the same time. He made thousands of dollars a minute, spending it on sex, drugs and international travel before it all came crashing down.

Jordan Belfort is a successful stockbroker, multi-millionaire and motivational speaker from New York who had enough money to throw anywhere he wanted. He was arrested and jailed in 1998 for a string of fraudulent activities surrounding stock market manipulation including money laundering and mob infiltration. He served 22 months in prison after being given a sentence of 4 years, famously refusing to cooperate during the case which exposed massive corruption on Wall Street. His crime was fuelled by his loved of alcohol, parties, women and, generally, the finer things in life including his luxury yacht which was originally built for Coco Chanel. He wrote two memoirs which were published in around 40 countries and have since been translated into 18 different languages.

The movie manages to move beyond parody, straight to clever satire.
We’ve all wanted to see This Is Then End ever since the very first trailer hit the airwaves, but now it looks like a ticket to the screening of the apocalyptic party movie might be more worth it than we thought. Oh, you thought you were getting a simple-minded comedy with celebrities acting like idiots? Well, it is that too, don’t worry, but surprisingly, This Is The End also takes its place as a skewering satire of celebrity culture – part of a definite trend lately.
While, yes, there are more famous faces in the film than at a Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, what makes this film isn’t the mere presence of so many stars. Instead, the appeal is in the way the hyperbolized versions of famous actors interact with each other. Penned by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (who also doubles as a member of the apocalypse squad in the movie,) this film sees both writers on top of their game. At the beginning of their career, the creative team set the bar pretty high with the hilarious nerdy romp Superbad. Unfortunately, they then failed to repeat the act with films like Pineapple Express.

When actor James Franco threw a party for his fellow movie stars including the star-studded cast of 'Knocked Up' and several stars of Seth Rogen's comedies including Seth himself, Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, no-one expected it to be anything more than your average drink fuelled Hollywood superparty. However, things take a turn for the worst when they experience a major earthquake; the ground opens up to the hottest depths of the Earth's core swallowing up Rihanna and Jason Segal as mysterious beasts start swarming around outside. What's a comedy cast to do with limited food and no real skills of the like they portray in the movies - especially when golden girl Emma Watson bursts in on them wielding an axe demanding all their resources. This is Hollywood versus the apocalypse, but who would really win?

Tarantino takes an unusually comical approach to a provocative topic, and the result is as controversial as expected. And also startlingly hilarious. At its core, this is another revenge-themed thriller, but Tarantino's snappy, constantly surprising aproach spirals out to explore racial issues over the past 150 years with humour, drama and, of course, grisly violence.
Set two years before the American Civil War in 1858 Texas, the story centres on bounty hunter Schultz (Waltz), who offers the slave Django (Foxx) what seems like a fantasy job: to work with him to capture white criminals dead or alive. Usually dead. Sure enough, everyone is shocked to see a black man not only riding a horse but carrying a gun. When Django helps find three notorious outlaw brothers, he earns his freedom, and Schultz then offers to help free Django's enslaved wife (Washington). This involves staging an elaborate sting on her owner, the bloodthirsty Mississippi plantation owner Calvin (DiCaprio), who runs a ring of slaves who fight each other to the death. But Calvin's butler Stephen (Jackson) suspects that something is up.
Waltz and Foxx have terrific chemistry in the central roles, with Waltz's lively intelligence bouncing off Foxx's physical and emotional intensity. This gives the film an underlying drive that keeps us engaged through the blood-soaked violence as well as the more slapstick-style sequences (a KKK raid led by Johnson and Hill feels like a lost sequence from Blazing Saddles). But Tarantino's screenplay is beautifully constructed to even out the tone with exciting action, harrowing nastiness and some darkly involving drama. All while quietly exploring the twisted history of racial relations in America.

Ok, so we know you fickle bunch want to know who the Golden Globes' best dressed stars were for 2013. You don't give a damn about Argo winning Best Picture, or Ben Affleck winning Best Director right? You want to know who got it right on the red carpet, and we don't blame you.
One thing particularly apparent at the Golden Globes 2013 was that actresses were prepared to take style chances. Not every outfit worked out, but it was worth the risk for many of Hollywood's biggest names. Cherry red was a favored color, while cut-out dresses, black gowns and intricate detailing were in abundance.

Leonardo Dicaprio has been spotted partying on a yacht with his The Wolf of Wall Street co-star Jonah Hill. And frankly, who can blame him? He’s 38, he’s one of the most famous Hollywood stars on the planet, he just recently split from his girlfriend Erin Heatherton. All signs point to party, right!?
Leo and Jonah went out for a spin in the yacht, cruising around Sydney Harbour, with a bunch of bikini clad women. Actually, some of the women ended up less ‘bikini-clad’ as ‘not-so-bikini-clad’ by the end of the trip but hey, it’s Australia, it’s hot, the girls have got to keep cool, right? Absolutely nothing to do with a low-rent attempt at attracting the attention of two Hollywood movie stars, right? I mean, they probably didn’t even KNOW that Leo had just split up with Erin recently, right?
Leonardo was back in Australia after being summoned to the country to re-film some scenes for The Great Gatsby. Even though a second, stunning trailer has been released for the movie, it seems that director Baz Luhrmann is still putting the finishing touches to his ambitious 3D venture. Still, Mr DiCaprio’s work schedule couldn’t have been too hectic, is he found time to lap up the winter sun and take in the… erm… local sights.
The end is nigh! Well, it isn't really, but if it were then the new trailer for the upcoming Seth Rogan and James Franco staring comedy This Is The End probably leads the way in acceptable ways to see out the end of days.
The new clip sees the pair inside 'real-life' Franco's bunker, presenting the trailer for the film which we will all unfortunately miss, because it comes out next summer (we wont really miss it though of course). The two spend the last night on the world as we know it playing with a gun, masturbating, engaging in a 'sword-fight,' fighting over weed and eventually spooning before bed - what else would you want to do.
After the brilliant into, we're treated to an all new, red banded trailer of the actual film about the end of the Earth, which just so happens to be as funny as the beginning. As well as the Pineapple Express, there's a host of other big names set to star in the upcoming film, including: Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and Craig Robinson, as well as a few cameos from the likes of Emma Watson to name but one, each playing an exaggerated (maybe) version of themselves.
