  1. Robin Hood: Origins Will Apparently Be A Gritty Reboot Produced By Leonardo DiCaprio

    Oo-de...lally?

    We previously explored the rumor that Hollywood was looking to make Robin Hood its next major reboot case with multiple separate projects in development at different studios. Now we know more about one of these: Robin Hood: Origins, which /Film calls a "gritty reinvention," to be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.

  2. A Mom Explains Inception Like Only a Mom Can to Our Infinite Amusement

    I, too, thought Matt Damon was great in this movie.

    Movies retold by mom may be the single most relatable concept on YouTube. Poor Leo. Hey, he was great in those Bourne movies!

  3. This Kid Lived Leo DiCaprio’s Life From Catch Me If You Can

    He basically used the film as an instruction manual, honestly.

    Did you watch the Leonardo DiCaprio film Catch Me If You Can, and think, "Gee, that's a great idea. I think I'm going to try that, because Leo makes fraud seem fun!" Well apparently one Scottish kid thought exactly that, and started living the high life, con-artist style.

  4. The Twilight Zone Movie Gets a Director; Hopefully He’s Amenable to Pig People

    Oh Hollywood

    Last we heard of the Twilight Zone movie, Leonardo DiCaprio's production company Appian Way had been trying to make it happen for approximately forever-and-a-half. There was even a vague, questionably accurate plot summary involving time travel. And now there's even more progress, as producers DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran have reportedly chosen whom they want to direct. So who's likely going to be helming the triumphant comeback of this legendary, much-beloved sci-fi franchise? The guy who directed TRON: Legacy. Er.

  5. Leonardo DiCaprio Brags, Parties, and Angsts (In That Order) in the New The Great Gatsby Trailer

    Oh Hollywood

    The latest trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby makes it look like a technicolor booze-fueled crime thriller. Which… well, I'm kind of OK with that. It's a Baz Luhrmann movie. No one expects to see a 100% faithful adaptation. I'm still not sold on Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, and though I realize it's completely unfair my instinctual reaction to Tobey Maguire starring in a movie is to wince. It takes a long time to wash away the mental trauma of Spider-Man 3. If I'm being honest, I'll probably see it. Because Joel Edgerton. Not that I need to justify myself to anyone! For more '20s glitz and glamor, check out recently released character posters for Tom (Edgerton), Myrtle (Isla Fisher), Nick (Maguire), and Jordan (Elizabeth Debicki).

  6. The Twilight Zone Movie Is Still Happening, (Probably) Won’t Involve Pig People

    The Future Is Now!

    You remember that The Twilight Zone movie Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company is making? No? Well, it's a thing that's happening. Not much progress has been made in the five years since it was put into development; the only major recent announcement is that director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) ditched the project for the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel. Until a few days ago, that is, when out of nowhere came evidence that, holy crap, this Twilight Zone movie might actually still be happening, you guys! The evidence in question is a vague plot description; according to Vulture, the film will be about "a test pilot who winds up breaking the speed of light; when he puts down his craft, he discovers that he’s landed a bit late for supper — 96 years late." Tweedle-deedle-tweedle-deedle...

  7. Metropolis Film Poster Could Be Sold For $850,000

    It's Aliiiiiiiiiiiive!

    No, we're not talking about Clark Kent's current living space, this is the classic sci-fi film directed by Fritz Lang that influenced just about every major sci-fi film that came after it. A three-sheet movie poster done for the film by art deco artist Heinz Schulz-Neudamm is being offered up for the low, low price of $850,000. Want to see what $850,000 worth of poster looks like?

  8. Kurt Russell Probably Replacing Kevin Costner in Tarantino’s Django Unchained

    This Makes Sense

    About two weeks ago, Kevin Costner had to drop out of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming western, Django Unchained. But now, it looks like the filmmaker will be reunited with one of his past stars -- Kurt Russell is currently in talks to take over the role vacated by Costner, Ace Woody. It won't be the first time Russell replaced an actor in a Tarantino movie, either -- the part of Stuntman Mike in 2007's Death Proof was supposed to have been played by Mickey Rourke. Pretty cool to have Kurt Russell as your perennial backup.

  9. The Short List to Direct the New Twilight Zone Movie Includes Christopher Nolan

    Rumory

    You might have heard that Leonardo DiCaprio is looking to produce a new Twilight Zone movie for Warner Bros. In a departure from the 1983 movie, which featured an anthology format -- four segments, four separate stories, four directors -- there will be only one story and one director. The story, which will be inspired by an episode of the original Twilight Zone series, will be written by Rand Ravich (The Astronaut's Wife). The director has yet to be chosen, though there is a "short list" going around that includes Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and frequent DiCaprio collaborator Christopher Nolan. I'll let the thought of a Nolan-helmed Twilight Zone movie simmer for a moment and then meet you all after the jump.

  10. Tobey Maguire, Leo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Possibly Involved in Illegal Gambling Ring

    what is this I don't even

    This sounds more like a movie than it does something that actually happened, but Tobey Maguire, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Leonardo DiCaprio (among others) have been named for their involvement in an illegal gambling ring. And no, it's not a revival of Guys and Dolls, either (although how amazing would that be?).

  11. Unexpected Rerelease of the Day: Titanic in 3-D

    Just What You've Always Wanted

    Yup, just so you can relive that period (almost fifteen years ago) when Leonardo DiCaprio was an annoyingly popular teenage heartthrob and not the guy starring in cerebral, memetic Christopher Nolan blockbusters while bankrolling a live-action Akira... James Cameron is restoring, digitally remastering, and converting Titanic to 3-D, for a brand new theatrical release next spring.

  12. Akira Pre-Production Halted for The Moment; Keanu Reeves Is Off the Project

    Cautiously Optimistic

    According to JoBlo.com, anime fans can breathe easier, for a little while, at least. Not only has Keanu Reeves reportedly passed on the starring role of Kaneda, Warner Bros. has shut down Akira's pre-visualization department, and "let go" most of the staff working on the film's pre-production. Warner Bros. maintains that the two occurrences have nothing to do with one another, telling JoBlo:

  13. Memes Within Memes Is Too Unstable: 15 Memes Inspired by Inception

     

    A week-and-a-half later, Inception is still lingering in our minds, doing well at the box office, and, most importantly, inspiring people to make funny pictures on the Internet. That last point might seem insubstantial, but rest assured it isn't.

    By and large, image macro humor is created by geeks, and as such they're a reliable gauge for which popular entertainment will endure, what actually makes us think and wins our obsession. Why do you think Inglourious Basterds birthed so many more memes than The Blind Side?

    Below, 15 of the best memes inspired by Inception. No big spoilers, per se, but they may not make sense if you haven't seen the movie. Also, be warned that there is some saucy language.

  14. Critics Drool Over Inception: Compare It to The Matrix, Bond Films, Kubrick and Coppola

    We can all breathe easy, but only for a few moments, before we start hyperventilating with unbearable anticipation. The review embargo for Christopher Nolan's Inception lifted yesterday at 6PM EST, and the critics that have weighed in are universally locked in verbal lust with the film.

    If this first wave of reviews is to be believed, Inception is Nolan's magnum opus, deftly weaving mindboggling visuals, emotional pay-off, and intricate storytelling into an intelligent sci-fi blockbuster. Though a backlash is inevitable sooner or later (Armond White?), the word seems to be that this could be the first must-see film of the year. The highlights of some of the more interesting Inception reviews, after the jump:

  15. Toy Story 3: Inception [Trailer Mashup]

    When the LA Times wrote the first in-depth piece about Inception, which they called an "existential heist flick," we were relieved to read it -- both because we're big Christopher Nolan fans, thanks in no small part to his great job on rebooting Batman, and because, well, we didn't really know what it was all about.

    Right when we thought we'd wrapped our heads around it, the devious video editor at ScreenRant, Mike Eisenberg, just had to throw our heads for a loop. Thanks to an uncannily well-done overdub of the audio from the Inception trailer over the trailer for Toy Story 3, we, like Leonardo DiCaprio -- or is that Woody? -- can no longer tell fact from fiction.

  16. Public Service Announcement: What Inception Is About

    I trust Christopher Nolan as a director, and with a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Caine, who could say no to Inception? The problem is that immediately after watching the trailer, I was overcome with two warring emotions. 1) An interest in the film. 2) The knowledge that I had been tricked into being interested in the film, because I still had no idea what it was about.

    Thankfully, Geoff Boucher at The LA Times has revealed just enough about the movie's plot to make the trailer more coherent and make me feel a little less like a victim of a Jedi mind trick.
