    Watch: Ace First Trailer For Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' Starring Leonardo DiCaprio

    We've somehow struggled, so far, to get excited for "The Wolf Of Wall Street." Maybe it's that we've started to take Martin Scorsese for granted -- his last few films, in "The Departed," "Shutter Island" and "Hugo" were all highly entertaining, but perhaps not up to the gold standard of the very bes...

    With grosses approaching $20 million and still going strong, the breakout box-office success of Jeff Nichols' "Mud" seems to have surprised many people. But reading The Wrap's report that the film "has played very strongly in the South" surprised me not at all, because "Mud" is the best Southern fil...

    Will This Finally Be Matthew McConaughey's Oscar Year? 'The Dallas Buyer's Club' Nabs Awards Season Date

    Matthew McConaughey must be thinking, "What on Earth do I have to do?" The actor stormed back into critical and audience hearts last year by putting on his shirt, dropping the romcoms, and showing that he's damn fine actor by delivering a fantastic performance in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike," a subtle and solid appearance in Richard Linklater's "Bernie," and a wonderfully hilarious and sleazy turn in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe."

He'd lost 38 pounds to prep for passion project "The Dallas Buyer's Club," about a straight man fighting HIV who becomes a dealer in unapproved drugs to stave off AIDS.

    Review: Deeply Felt, Thrilling 'Mud' Shows Director Jeff Nichols & Matthew McConaughey At The Top Of Their Games

    It all starts with a beautifully surreal image: a decrepit boat resting comfortably in the branches of a tree. The young boys who find it want to use it, make it their own. But on this particular river island in Arkansas, they are not alone. It's not long before they encounter Mud (Matthew McConaugh...
