Well, here’s something to make you feel bad about whatever meager pittance you pulled in from your last paycheck: Forbes Magazine has released its annual list of the highest paid actors in Hollywood. At the very top of the list is Leonardo DiCaprio, who has apparently raked in $77 million in the past year. Johnny Depp was a not particularly close second, with $50 million.
Like DiCaprio, most of the players at the top were the names you’d expect – seven of this year’s top 10 were also among last year’s top 10 — with their respective places on the list shuffled around. Other actors in this year’s top five were Adam Sandler, Will Smith, and Tom Hanks. Read the rest of the list after the jump.

Now that Bella and Edward have spent three whole films falling desperately in love, they’re finally taking things to the next level. In the brand-new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, everyone’s favorite sparklevamp and his beloved invite their loved ones to watch them make it official.
In real life, when my roommate and I get invitations to our human friends’ weddings, we post them on our fridge and then forget about them until all the cheap registry gifts are already taken. Apparently, getting invited to a vampire wedding is far more exciting and involves way more ripping off of shirts in the rain. Watch the trailer after the jump.

It’s a wedding! Squee! I know that the /Film audience is not, by and large, one that is obsessed with every little bit of Twilight news that comes across the interwebs, but the first real footage from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is something of interest. There’s not a lot to this clip, which is (of course) a cross-promotion with MTV. It is essentially an example of that new breed of movie marketing, a trailer for a trailer. But if you’re truly on the hook for Twilight, you can watch a bride walk down the aisle to her vampire, after the break. Read More »
We haven’t yet seen a trailer for David Cronenberg‘s new film A Dangerous Method, but now here’s the first still from his next new film, an adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis. Principal photography started on the movie this week, and so here’s the first look at Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon as husband and estranged wife Eric and Elise. Get used to looking at that limo, because if the film is faithful to the book you’ll be seeing a lot of it. (Edit: As some surmised, this isn’t in the limo where much of the film takes place, but a taxi.) Check out the full image after the break. Read More »
We at /Film are well aware of how much you guys love Twilight news, so we try our best to keep you updated on the latest in the phenomenally popular sparkling-vampire series. To that end, we have a batch of new The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 images that have just been released via press release, just days after we posted the last set of stills. You’re welcome.
The new photos include images of Michael Sheen and Jamie Campbell Bower (a.k.a. Gellert Grindelwald from the Harry Potter series) as vampire coven leaders Aro and Caius, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) looking tough on a motorcycle, and Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) playing chess in what appears to be a Pottery Barn catalog. Mull ‘em over after the jump.

Let’s take a rare dip into the Twilight pool. The first half of the two-part series climax, Breaking Dawn, is set to be released on November 18, and Summit is starting the promo machine. A set of new photos has been released for the film, along with a big cover story in Entertainment Weekly that doesn’t tell us too much, but promises some punch to the weird, bloody end of the story.

David Cronenberg has his cast pretty much set for his adaptation of Don DeLillo‘s novel Cosmopolis. Robert Pattinson plays the lead role, and we’ve been waiting for the final word on an actress to play his character’s estranged wife. Marion Cotillard was originally set to play the part, but dropped out due to her pregnancy. And now David Cronenberg has tapped Sarah Gadon, who had a small part in the director’s yet to be released film A Dangerous Method. Read More »
Looks like Warner Bros. is really going to make a new live-action version of Akira, adapted from Katsuhiro Otomo‘s massive manga of the same name. And it looks like some big changes — cosmetic ones at least, and probably several deep cuts — are in store. We’d already heard that a previous draft of the script was thrown at actors like Brad Pitt and James Franco, which suggested that the Albert Hughes-directed film is going to go pretty far off-book. (The leads in both the manga and anime versions of Akira are Japanese high-schoolers.)
The identities of actors that were offered a previous draft of the script seem to be open to question, but now there is a new shortlist based on the most recent script. That was just turned in by Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves, and has reportedly been delivered to a handful of actors, with a few in mind as possible choices for the two lead roles of Kaneda and Tetsuo. Among the names are Robert Pattinson, Michael Fassbender and Joaquin Phoenix. Stop saying ‘WTF?’ and hit the jump for more info. Read More »
