October 9th release date for the Boyle / Sorkin collaboration, just in time for awards season.
The troubled Steve Jobs biopic has finally announced a theatrical release date of October 9th this year. Strangely enough, that’s exactly the kind of time that judges start to think about awards nominations…
Shooting for the film, which has been the centre of a great deal of speculation because of its lengthy gestation and uncertain funding, began last month in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Danny Boyle, the man behind cult favourites such as Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and 28 Days Later, as well as the London Olympics opening ceremony in 2012, is in the director’s chair.

Leonardo DiCaprio is currently starring as a mythic fur trapper and frontiersman in Alejandro González Iñárritu's follow up to 'Birdman'.
'Birdman' still has yet to open in some countries and already has multiple Academy Award nominations. One of these nomination is a 'Best Director' nod for Alejandro González Iñárritu, which will certainly help with his upcoming film's promotion. Said film is already in production, as it happens, and its premise alone is about as far away from 'Birdman' as you can get.
Leonardo Dicaprio as the mythic trapper John Glass in 'The Revenant'
'The Revenant' is based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Michael Punke, and follows the story of American fur trapper Hugh Glass, who was injured by a grizzly bear on a hunt, and left for dead by his fellow trappers. After coming to and discovering that he had suffered horrific wounds before being left 200 miles from civilisation, Glass was forced to crawl that distance through an area of disputed land that various Native American tribes were fighting over. All the time, Glass was unarmed, alone, and close to death from his wounds. And if you haven't guessed by now, yes, it is based on a true story.
The Wolf of Wall Street was popular with pirates.
The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo Dicaprio in one of the best roles in years, was the most pirated movie of the year. The Martin Scorsese comedy-drama and Disney's smash hit Frozen were both downloaded about 30 million times by torrent users worldwide.

Benedict Cumberbatch is now considered to be in the top rung of the world's greatest actors.
The Imitation Game, Benedict Cumberbatch's potentially Oscar-winning movie about the genius mathematician tasked with cracking the "unbreakable" codes of Germany's World War II enigmatic machine, opens in the UK today. Cumberbatch is now regarded as one of the most sought after actors on the planet, though, as Variety reports, Hollywood had an even bigger star readied for the role of Alan Turing.
Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game
The movie was originally set up at Warner Bros with Leonardo Dicaprio in talks to play Turing - a man who, despite helping his country win the war, was prosecuted for homosexuality in 1952 and was chemically castrated as an alternative to prison.

Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs after Leonardo DiCaprio decided to take a break from acting.
Christian Bale will play the late Apple founder Steve Jobs in Sony's forthcoming biopic, sources confirm. The project boasts a huge pedigree with Danny Boyle directing from a script by Aaron Sorkin, based on Walter Isaacson's biography.
Christian Bale is an Oscar winner who brings serious pedigree to the Jobs biopic
Sorkin has previously confirmed the movie will be divided into three long scenes, each taking place backstage before one of Apple's famous product launches. The first scene will focus on the launch of the Mac, while, interestingly, the second will follow Jobs as he unveils the NeXT - the cube like computer that he developed after leaving Apple and a machine used by Tim Berners-Lee to write the first web browser. The final section of the movie will focus on the iPod.

Outkast wants Leonardo DiCaprio to play him in a film, and Kevin James to play Big Boi.
Andre 3000 may have just played Jimi Hendrix in Jimi: All Is By My Side, but the Outkast man has some ambitious plans for a biopic of himself. Speaking at a screening of the movie at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, the rapper admitted he had some unconventional casting choices in mind.
Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in 'All Is By My Side'
"Instead of really serious, make it a full comedy - like Kevin Hart would play Big Boi," he told Rolling Stone. For himself, Andre said, "We should cast somebody stupid - like Leonardo [DiCaprio]."
Andre 3000 has some unusual casting ideas for who might play him and Big Boi in a film about their band Outkast.

After the wedding, the powerhouse couple are moving ahead with other projects.
In celebrity news you should definitely care about, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are now officially, legally married. It’s been kind of a public secret for the past few days, but Pitt seemed to put his seal of approval on the news, when he rocked a wedding band over the weekend in NYC.
Brad and Ang are married - it was only a matter of time, really.
Several news outlets reported earlier this week that the couple had finally taken the leap last Saturday at Chateau Miraval – their home in France.
Martin Scorsese is beginning work on a 'Shutter Island' prequel.
Martin Scorsese is in the early stages of developing a Shutter Island prequel series for HBO. The premium cable network is working with the Oscar-winner on a TV show based on the 2010 movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Orlando Bloom may have got the first punch in, but who wants the second?
We're pretty sure that Orlando Bloom has managed to win over a good few thousand more fans after striking a fierce blow in the direction of Justin Bieber's head, but we can think of quite a few other stars who wouldn't mind a go either.
Come and have a go!
The story goes that Bieber met the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor at Cipriani restaurant in Miami where he extended a hand which Bloom did not shake. Then things start to get a bit sketchy: some sources claim he said, 'She was good' to Bloom, in reference to his alleged relationship with his ex-wife Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr, while TMZ claims Bieber shouted 'What's up, bitch?' at the actor. Either way, eyewitnesses reveal Bloom threw a good punch at the singer - to most of the audience's utter delight by the sound of things - though it still isn't clear whether or not any damage was caused.

Robert Downey Jr. has topped Forbes Magazine's annual list of Top Earners in Hollywood for the second year in a row.
With an estimated income of $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014, Downey Jr. shows that he's somewhat similar to his onscreen counterpart, billionaire superhero Tony Stark. 2014 has actually been a fairly quiet year for Downey Jr. considering there is no Marvel blockbuster hitting our screens (featuring him, at any rate) but he still managed to maintain his spot at the top.
It's been another great year for Robert Downey Jr.

Hardy has just been confirmed as joining DiCaprio for the upcoming thriller
The cast of Leonardo Dicaprio’s next film The Revenant is finally beginning to take shape, with his Inception co-star Tom Hardy signing on to the project. The western thriller, which is based on a true story, is set to begin shooting this fall, with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu at the helm. But what do we know about the movie so far?
The Revenant will star DiCaprio as Hugh Glass
If it wasn't about Cleary, what could have driven Andrew Stern to suicide?
Andrew Stern, the husband of former America’s Next Top Model contestant Katie Cleary committed suicide earlier this week. According to the police, via TMZ, Stern shot himself in the head at a shooting range in San Fernando Valley. It happened on Sunday night. Stern, 40, had been married to Cleary for four years and the couple was reportedly going through a rough patch.
Cleary's publicist has denied the rumours of her infidelity.
The suicide is now being linked in various tabloid reports to Cleary’s recent trip to Cannes. While there, she was photographed with Leonardo Dicaprio and Entourage’s Adrian Grenier. Katie’s rep, speaking for the Daily Mail, insisted that both conversations were completely innocent - Cleary and Grenier had been friends for sometime, while she and DiCaprio were having an innocent chat about animal conservation. The picture was taken at a nightclub.
The model’s 40 year old husband was found dead over the weekend due to an apparent suicide.
The tragic story of Katie Cleary’s husband Andrew Stern has taken an all too unfortunate tabloid turn over the past 24hours, as actor Leonardo Dicaprio has found his name unfairly linked to the tragedy. Days after the news of Andrew's death broke, TMZ began speculating that his wife's friendship with the actor may have been factor in his descision to end his own life.
Cleary and Stern had been married since 2010
On Sunday, entrepreneur Andrew Stern was found dead at a California shooting range, reportedly from a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Stern had been married to model Katie, who’s best known for her appearances on ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and ‘Deal or No Deal’, since 2010, but the couple were said to have been separated for some months.
The 39 year-old actor has vowed to donate the very large sum of money "to meaningful ocean conservation projects over the next two years,” in order to aid the protection of our earth's oceans.
Leonardo Dicaprio is a very generous man!
The 39 year-old actor has guaranteed that he will donate $7 million to marine conversation efforts that work to protect the earth's oceans, the Washington Post reports.
News of the hefty give-away was announced at a State Department conference in Washington D.C. on Tuesday morning (June 17th), when DiCaprio reached out to all world leaders to also take immediate action.

What would you pay to travel into space with Leonard DiCaprio?
The Hollywood star auctioned off a ticket to board one of the first commercial flights into space in Cannes, France, for amFAR, an international non-profit organisation that supports AIDS research, Variety reports.
The person who won the bidding war has not yet been identified, but whoever it was must be rather wealthy as the ticket eventually sold for around $1million, and will now be joining the actor on a 2015 Virgin Galactic space trip.

Danny Boyle and Leonardo DiCaprio may be teaming up once again to work on the Aaron Sorkin-scripted biopic about Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs.
Dream team Leonardo Dicaprio and Danny Boyle may be teaming up once again to work on the Aaron Sorkin-written biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Gatsby actor Leonardo DiCaprio has previously worked with English film director Boyle on the 2000 film The Beach, so the pair are already well acquainted with one another and have proven successes in their back catalogue.
Danny Boyle will be picking up the Steve Jobs biopic now David Fincher is out
DiCaprio is said to be Boyle's top choice to play Jobs, the Apple co-founder who passed away in 2011 following complications from pancreatic cancer, which he had been suffering with for many years. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming biopic, particularly since director David Fincher, who had been pegged to direct, passed on the role. Fincher was said to have been desperate to cast Oscar-winner Christian Bale in the role, a choice many fans had concurred with. Fincher dropped out of the project due to salary dispute and issues over creative control, and with him the possibility that Bale will don Jobs’ signature black polo neck and glasses.

If the actor and director chose to sign onto the project, this will be their first collaboration since 2000's 'The Beach.'
Leonardo Dicaprio is reportedly being pursued to play the late Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs in the highly anticipated biopic.
The 39 year-old actor has been approached by Danny Boyle, who is in negotiations to replace the departed David Fincher as director, The Hollywood Reporter notes.
The movie is expected to focus on the launches of Apple's original Macintosh computer (1984), NeXT Cube (1990), and original iPod (2001)
Leonardo DiCaprio is teaming up with Gonzalez Inarritu for 'The Revenant'.
Leonardo Dicaprio will continue his hunt for a best actor Oscar with Gonzalez Inarritu's The Revenant, a gritty thriller about a fur trapper in 1820s America. The movie is an adaptation of Michael Punke's 2003 novel.
Leonardo DiCaprio Missed Out On The Oscar For 'The Wolf of Wall Street'
The book follows Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper who gets mauled by a bear and is left fighting for his life after being robbed, forcing him to set out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on those who betrayed him. Glass - whom DiCaprio will portray - is described as "deserted, defenceless and furious."

Was the man dancing to MGMT at Coachella really Leonardo DiCaprio?
By now you’ve probably all seen that video of a man thought to be Leonardo Dicaprio busting out some serious dance moves at Coachella over the weekend. Whilst Leo hasn’t come out to confirm or deny that was him, the generally consensus online seems to be that yes indeed it was the Titanic star. With all the internet furor the clip has created we thought this one we needed some further investigation before we decided it was definitely DiCaprio.
Leonardo DiCaprio as we're used to seeing him
In the thirteen second clip, a man is seen seemingly having the time of his life, partying with friends. Of course a man dancing like an idiot during a MGMT festival set is nothing to write home about, or even bother recording, but if the man is Leonardo DiCaprio, then you’ve got an epic viral video on your hands. From what we can see it seems that maybe when Leo’s not being a suave red carpet darling he really likes to let loose and show off some priceless dance moves, worthy of any dad at a wedding.

It's not just Leonardo DiCaprio who's failed to win an Oscar.
Another Oscar ceremony brought another defeat for Leonardo DiCaprio, now on his fifth Academy Award nomination the actor just can't seem to walk away with the statuette. Leo’s not the only actor, however, that’s been snubbed by the Academy, many of our most talented actors just can’t seem to catch a break with the Academy, take these ten for example:

Despite being nominated for an Academy-Award three times before, Leonardo DiCaprio has never been victorious, but many believe his most recent portrayal in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is enough for the 39 year-old to earn an Oscar for Best Actor.
The movie award season is nearly at and end, and as the Academy-Awards are only days away it is still unpredictable who the big winners will be?
There are several big question's going into Sunday's award ceremony, but only one is frequently garnering everyone's attention.
Will Leonardo Dicaprio finally win an Oscar?
Continue reading: Is This The Year Leonardo DiCaprio Is Finally Honored With An Oscar?
Leonardo DiCaprio will be unlucky to lose out on the Oscar for best actor, for 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.
Let's ignore the bookmakers' predictions for this Sunday's Oscars (March 2, 2014). The people who devise these odds have not seen the movies and base their prices on critics' reviews and public opinion of movies, actors and actresses. The McConnaissance - see Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, Wolf of Wall Street and True Detective - has left bookmakers quaking in their boots and reducing Matthew Mcconaughey's odds of winning best actor to 1/9. It's true that his portrayal of Ron Woodruff is probably the best of his career, though the Texan is way off being considered a nailed certainty on to win the award.
Consider the alternatives: we've got Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of the finest movie of the year, Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave. History suggests that when a movie gains a momentum at the Oscars, it can rattle through the categories taking awards that it probably had no right to win. Nobody would complain should Ejiofor take best actor on Sunday anyway, though McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio could find themselves with little chance if the Academy has voted for 12 Years in the same way it took to The King's Speech and The Artist.

The disgruntled lawyer is certain he was represented within the movie, and not in a positive light
Nicky "Rugrat" Koskoff, a character in The Wolf of Wall Street played by actor P.J. Byrne, has come under intense scrutiny after a federal lawsuit asserted that it is "readily apparent" that he is based on Andrew Greene, a former Wall Street lawyer.
The stockbrokers get up to some pretty awful things in The Wolf of Wall Street
Greene's lawsuit is asking for "in excess of" $25 million in damages from the filmmakers, who he maintains made him look like "a criminal, drug user, degenerate, depraved, and/or devoid of any morality or ethics."
Leonardo DiCaprio recalls "being terrified of ever having to go up onstage in front of a billion people," when he was first nominated for an Oscar at 19 years-old in 1993.
Leonardo Dicaprio is one of the most prolific actor’s in the movie industry today, and he hopes to win his first Oscar at this year’s premier movie award ceremony.
The 39 year-old is nominated for Best Actor for his brilliant, yet harrowing, portrayal of corrupt Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort in the Martin Scorsese-directed ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’.
But there was once a time, no matter how bizarre it sounds, that DiCaprio didn’t want to receive an Academy-Award, even though it is the penultimate in an actor’s career.
Andrew Greene alleges he was defamed by his portrayal in Martin Scorsese's movie.
A lawyer has launched a lawsuit against Martin Scorsese's movie The Wolf of Wall Street, alleging that he has been defamed by the character Nicky "Rugrat" Roskoff. Andrew Greene's suit that it was "readily apparent" the character, known in the movie as "Rugrat," was based on him.
Actor P.J. Byrne Plays Nicky Roskoff, The Character Who Greene Alleges Is Based On Him.
Actor P.J. Byrne plays the character in the Oscar-nominated stockbroker drama who earns his nickname because of his toupee and willingness to launder money. Greene alleges that the movie has "permanently damaged" his professional and personal reputation by portraying him as "a criminal and drug user with misogynistic tendencies," according to CNN.

First Woodrow Wilson, then Theodore Roosevelt?
Leonardo Dicaprio wants to bring the life of American president Theodore Roosevelt to the movies and reportedly has plans to take centre-stage in a new biopic directed by Martin Scorsese. "Leo is telling friends that after his latest movie proved to be a massive box office hit, he's pushing forward with his biopic of Roosevelt which will re-team him with The Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese," a source said to RadarOnline.
Leonardo DiCaprio Reportedly Wants To Play Theodore Roosevelt In A Biopic.
If all goes ahead with the Roosevelt biopic, it probably won't be the first time the Titanic actor has played a US president. He is said to have a Woodrow Wilson biopic in the works, apparently to be based on A. Scott Berg's acclaimed biography of the divisive Democrat leader.
The only thing Leo had to draw from was the people he saw on drugs
There was to be no method acting on this one. Leonardo Dicaprio may be in line for an Oscar for portraying the drug-addicted stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street, but the star didn’t have a personal experience of drug use to fall back on because, well, he’s never taken drugs.
“That’s because I saw this stuff literally every day when I was 3 or 4 years old,” DiCaprio said. “So Hollywood was a walk in the park for me…. I’d go to parties and it was there and, yeah, there’s that temptation,” he explained to The Los Angeles Times.
Leonardo DiCaprio has never taken any form of illegal substances despite playing such a convincing role of drug addict Jordan Belfort in 'The Wolf Of Wall Street'.
The 39 year-old plays the real life Jordan Belfort, a power hungry criminal, who defrauded investors and the stock market for millions of dollars during the 90s.
Mr. Belfort also developed quite a hard and extravagate partying life style which included a very intense drug addiction.
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.
Coarse and not exactly subtle, this dark drama might disappoint viewers expecting a more traditional revenge thriller, but there's something more interesting going on here. And even though it starts at full volume and only gets more intense, the film is actually remarkably thoughtful and measured in its approach.
It's set in the Rust Belt, industrial Pennsylvania, where Russell (Bale) works in a steel mill and worries about his little brother Rodney (Affleck), who's deep in debt to a local bookie (Dafoe). Then a late-night car crash lands Russell in prison, and when he's released everything has changed. He has no job, his girlfriend (Saldana) is now dating the local sheriff (Whitaker), and Rodney is paying off his debts by fighting in bare-knuckle boxing matches. Even more perilous is the fact that all of this puts the brothers on a collision course with vicious local redneck Harlan (Harrelson), who has no intention of making their lives easier.
The film opens with a particularly brutal display of Harlan's menace, so we know what's coming. And as everything goes from bad to worse for our two heroes, the film feels almost aggressively harsh. Of course, Bale and Affleck are terrific as these damaged men whose fierce bond both helps and puts them into danger. And both actors let us see beneath the surface as their lives fall apart. In what could be the thankless ex-girlfriend role, Saldana has some surprisingly powerful moments. And Harrelson is a deeply terrifying force to reckon with.

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."
