With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’ve now heard buzz on almost all of the major Fall releases. Two we’re still a bit in the dark about, though, are David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street. That’ll surely change in the coming weeks as each release is quickly approaching, but Paramount has begun to build the hype for Scorsese’s latest. Commercials have started airing for the Christmas release and now several new images, a clip and two awesome posters have made it online.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens December 25 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey among others. Check out the new media – which includes some awesome behind the scenes looks of Scorsese in action – below. Read More »

- A few names, including Emilia Clarke and Garrett Hedlund have been mentioned to possibly be up for Sarah and John Connor in Terminator 5.

The second trailer from Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street may not have the propulsive drive of the first, which was powered by Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead,’ but it does have a few oh-so-perfect shots of Leonardo DiCaprio reacting to the insane wealth and resulting lifestyle his character enjoys. It’s a gif wonderland, this trailer. The fist-bite shot above is just one example.
Here we see DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, who with an eager beaver assistant played by Jonah Hill (wearing some massive false choppers) builds a young, go-getting brokerage firm. They make more cash than they know what do do with; trouble is, most of what they’re doing is totally illegal. Oops. The feds show up, of course, but not before this tale of Wall Street hubris really plays in the sandbox of insane wealth.
It all looks deliberately exaggerated and more than bit over the top, but seeing Scorsese and DiCaprio in a mode this lively is a joy to behold. Read More »

Of all the reasons to love This Is the End, the amazing cast is by far the best. As hilarious as Seth Rogen (who also co-directed with Evan Goldberg), Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson are individually, they’re even better together. The gang has been tight for years, and it shows in every perfectly silly riff.
We can only assume that that set must have been a hoot, what with all of these comedians trying to outdo each other. Now a gag reel from the production only lends credence to that theory. Hit the jump to see the guys getting even goofier on the set than they do in the final film.

It’s easy to imagine an alternate universe in which 21 Jump Street, an unasked-for reboot of a stale old property, sank in 2012 without leaving much of a trace. Instead, thanks to the crackling chemistry between leads Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, the hilarious script by Hill and Michael Bacall, and the energetic direction by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it turned out to be one of the year’s pleasantest surprises.
Now the group has reunited to try and recreate that magic. Production on the sequel 22 Jump Street kicked off this past weekend in New Orleans, and we have the first pics from the set right here. Hit the jump to check ‘em out.

The sequel to 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street, was always going to take place in college. That much was locked in from the film’s final scene. But what would Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) be doing with their time? Those story points have begun to leak out as casting for the sequel, scheduled for release June 13, 2014, continues. Ice Cube is now confirmed to return and Greek star Amber Stevens has been cast, potentially as his daughter (and definitely as Hill’s love interest). Read more about that, and the plot, below.

Warner Bros. has been trying to get Wonder Woman to the big screen for years, and they’re finally on the verge of success. The catch? She’ll be rendered in Lego bricks rather than flesh and blood.
We’ve known for some time that Lego Batman and Superman would appear in the upcoming The Lego Movie, played by Will Arnett and Channing Tatum, respectively. During today’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and co-director Chris McKay revealed that they’d also be joined by Justice League teammates Lego Wonder Woman, voiced by Cobie Smulders, and Green Lantern, voiced by Jonah Hill. Hit the jump for more updates from the panel.

Jonah Hill‘s transition from comedy star to Academy Award-nominated dramatic actor has been so quick, he’s made it look almost easy. But as evidenced by the scores of funnymen who’ve tried to make that same leap and failed, it’s not something just anyone can do.
For one thing, it involves making some very tough decisions. Such as turning down roles in what turned out to be two of 2009’s biggest hits, The Hangover and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Of course, it’s obvious now that things have worked out just fine for Hill, but at the time, he said, “most people didn’t understand.” Hit the jump to read about his choices.
