Lars von Trier, the notoriously outspoken filmmaker who got himself temporarily banned from the Cannes Film Festival for comments he made about Nazis (oh Lars!), has a two-part sex epic coming out later this year called "Nymphomaniac." In a press release, er, released this morning (which clearly isn't connected to Cannes going on right now), it was announced that the two films would premiere in Copenhagen in December, along with the first official photo of the films' cast. Thankfully they aren't involved in some huge gang bang, but rather posed artfully, like a super perverse Gap ad. Get More »
Shia LaBeouf has become quite the rabble-rouser, speaking out against the Hollywood studio system (which he equates to having a finger stuck up your butt) and dropping out of his Broadway debut following a sparring with co-star Alec Baldwin. But he can get away with it. Do you know why?
Because he's hot. Duh.
Check out our collection of pics of the star of Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" in movies and on the red carpet. Ah, to be young, passionate and attractive!
Shia LaBeouf continues his crusade to not be in movies with giant robots in "The Company You Keep," the Robert Redford-directed thriller in which the past comes a'callin' for a bunch of senior citizens who did something bad back in the day. Get More »
We've all had disappointments in life — missing that free throw in the state semis, getting stood up at the homecoming dance, that one time that puppy took a whiz in your purse — but for most of us, there's never been anything as disappointing as "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Bleah. Get More »
Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"
These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
This week: Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return as Agents J and K, respectively, in "Men in Black 3." In this long-awaited time-traveling sequel we meet a young Agent K, played to perfection by Josh Brolin.
Also new this week is the Prohibition drama "Lawless," Whitney Houston's last performance in "Sparkle," the spooky stop-motion animated feature "ParaNorman," and the modern-dance showcase "Step Up Revolution." Get More »
The hipster formula is as follows: If exclusivity is cool and hideous fashion is undesirable, then adopting hideous fashions because they are undesirable makes one exclusive. And this exclusivity, in turn, makes one cool. Now apply this philosophy to everything you own and... voila! You are a hipster! You will now be in the market for a Polaroid camera and declare that you were listening to bands no one's heard of before it was cool to listen to bands no one's heard of.
For those too square to know, hipsters are currently stuck on a nostalgic obsession with both the 1980s and 1880s, adopting the silliest and most anachronistic fashion choices of both simultaneously. The result is a horrifying mix of big glasses, curly mustaches, tight T-shirts and brimmed hats. We couldn't help but notice that Shia LaBeouf's Prohibition-era style in the new gangster film "Lawless" looks oddly... contemporary. So we've compiled a look back at movie characters who didn't realize they were being hip before anyone else was.
With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »
And now, for some good news: In the trailer for the upcoming political thriller "The Company You Keep," Shia LaBeouf does not at any time either a) have actual on screen sex with his co-stars or b) drop acid on screen in a misguided attempt to be the most method actor ever. So what does the movie feature if not extreme acting stunts?
How about Oscar and Golden Globe favorites Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Anna Kendrick, Chris Cooper, Richard Jenkins, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard and Sam Elliott?
If it's all about "The Company You Keep," Shia is keeping some pretty awesome company! Get More »
Okay, so when we told you that Shia LaBeouf was preparing to have real sex on screen in the upcoming Lars von Trier film "Nymphomanic," you probably thought a) that seems like an interesting way to make a living and b) LaBeouf is maybe taking this a little too far. Method acting is one thing, but rhythm method acting?
Well, it turns out that's just the tip of the iceberg, because, according to MTV, LaBeouf decided to really get into character for the upcoming indie film "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" by dropping acid for a scene. Get More »
