Later this fall, Shia LaBeouf will be seen in American Honey, Andrea Arnold’s lovely and rambling indie drama about a magazine crew traveling across the U.S. But he almost spent 2016 as part of a very different ragtag group of misfits. The actor reveals he was considered for a part in the Warner Bros. DC supervillain team-up Suicide Squad, which would’ve reunited him with his Fury director David Ayer. Read More »

Todd Phillips‘ War Dogs might become one of the summer’s few pleasant surprises. Critics are somewhat mixed on the film, but the reviews are far more positive than what we read for The Hangover sequels, and they’re about on par with the reviews for Phillips’ Old School, Starsky & Hutch, and Road Trip, his more well-liked movies. Jonah Hill is receiving praise for his performance as obnoxious gunrunner Efraim Diveroli, but originally, Shia LaBeouf was going to play the character.
Below, find out why LaBeouf and Jesse Eisenberg didn’t lead the War Dogs cast.

Andrea Arnold may be a British director, but her latest feature, American Honey, is about as all-American as they come. And to emphasize that point, she’s getting a little assist from that most American of musicians, Bruce Springsteen. The Boss’ “Dream Baby Dream” soundtracks the latest American Honey trailer, along with some voiceover reminding you that American Honey has gotten some really, really good reviews on the festival circuit.
As with Arnold’s Fish Tank, American Honey stars a total newcomer. Sasha Lane plays a troubled teen who takes up with a traveling magazine sales crew, falling in love with a particularly charismatic member named Jake (Shia LaBeouf). Running the operation is steely Krystal, played by Riley Keough. Watch the latest American Honey trailer below.

Andrea Arnold‘s (Red Road) first U.S.-set film, American Honey, made quite an impression at the Cannes Film Festival last month. The drama won the Jury Prize and, although it somewhat divided critics, it provoked a variety of passionate reactions. Some called American Honey superficial, others proclaimed the film an achievement. Whatever the quality of the movie is, it’s directed by Andrea Arnold, meaning it’ll be, at the very least, an experience.
Below, watch the first American Honey trailer.

Shia LaBeouf has become quite the performance artist over the past few years. People possibly talk more about his live-performances — the “I am not famous anymore” bag on his head, for example, or him sitting in a room all day as strangers come in and say what they please — than his actual big-screen performances. The guy’s doing something right, because he has our attention. Now, for the next few days, you can watch a live-stream of his latest project.

If you liked Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, then David Ayer‘s new film may be right up your alley.

Warning, if you are easily creeped out, this video will not be easy to watch. The team at ScreenJunkies went against rules of Shia LaBeouf‘s elaborate Los Angeles art installation #IAMSORRY and snuck in a camera. They took off his bag and, well, it’s just weird. Check out the video below. Read More »
Shia LaBeouf would be proud of Jerry O’Connell. LaBeouf got national press Tuesday for the opening of his contemporary art installation #IAMSORRY. The “show” features LaBeouf in the paper bag he wore to the world premiere of Nymphomaniac in Berlin, sitting quietly while fans talk to him. Wednesday, in the space right next door to LaBeouf’s in West Hollywood, actor Jerry O’Connell set up #IAMSORRYTOO, which featured the Stand By Me, Jerry Maguire and Sliders star in a bag that said “Super Famous,” and willing to talk about damn near anything.
