Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for their highly-anticipated Tomb Raider reboot, which hits theaters in just under two months.

Leonardo DiCaprio confirmed for Quentin Tarantino’s next movie

Deadline is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio has become the first addition to Quentin Tarantino’s next film, which will take place in Los Angeles in 1969 and is set to the backdrop of the Manson Family murders.

The film will mark DiCaprio’s first on-screen role since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant. The star – who previously worked with Tarantino on Django Unchained – is set to play an aging actor, presumably the one referred to in the brief plot description:

“Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, the film focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.

Leonardo DiCaprio in Talks for Tarantino’s Manson Murder Film

Leonardo DiCaprio may soon be reunited with director Quentin Tarantino. According to THR, the Oscar-winning actor who starred in Tarantino’s 2012 ‘Django Unchained‘ is in talks to sign on for a role in Tarantino’s next film based on the Manson family murders.

The upcoming film is said to be something along the lines of an ‘Inglorious Bastards’-style in the sense that it is loosely based on a tragic and world changing moment in history. In 1969, Charles Manson ordered his group of followers known as the Manson Family to invade the 10050 Cielo Drive home in Los Angeles and murder whomever was there and to make it look like it was the beginning of a race war. At the time the home belonged to director Roman Polanski and his pregnant wife Sharon Tate. The Manson family broke into the home and tortured and murdered Sharon Tate, her unborn child, and three of Tate’s friends,

Leonardo DiCaprio Locked In For Quentin Tarantino’s Charles Manson Movie

After months of rumors, Leonardo DiCaprio is now confirmed to be reuniting with Quentin Tarantino for his upcoming movie set around the Manson family murders. Precisely what this film is about remains a mystery, as Tarantino has confusingly said that it’s not actually about the Manson murders, despite Manson victim Sharon Tate reportedly playing a central role in the narrative (and the film releasing on August 9th, the date she was killed).

Furthermore, the director has famously said he’ll only ever helm ten movies in his career, and as this will be his ninth, the film is currently being referred to as #9 in promotional circles. Whatever the content of it is, it’s recently kicked off an almighty bidding war amongst studios – unsurprisingly.

All of Tarantino’s past work has been distributed by The Weinstein Company and, well…nobody wants that guy’s name stuck on the front of their movie these days,

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Star in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Era Movie
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is set to reunite with director Quentin Tarantino for his upcoming Manson Movie. As Tarantino tells it, the movie isn't actually about the Manson murders that took place in Los Angeles in the late 60s, but since he hasn't released any actual story details, that's about the only way we can identify it. For now at least. In any case, it's being reported that DiCaprio is officially in talks to star in the movie, which was rumored but is now official. Though, the deal hasn't actually closed yet, but it is expected to close soon.

Weinstein Company Bids Due Today (Exclusive)

Weinstein Company Bids Due Today (Exclusive)
The Weinstein Co. sale process is heating up with the first round of bids due on Wednesday, according to industry sources. Last month, the studio revived its attempts to sell itself or the bulk of its film and television assets rather than file for bankruptcy protection.

Killer Content, the parent company of the long-established indie Killer Films, and its social outreach wing, Killer Impact, are believed to be among the bidders. Killer Content has pulled together a group of investors, including Abigail Disney and the New York Women’s Foundation, in an effort to salvage the company’s assets by steering the profits from Weinstein Co. titles to non-profit orgs that help women grappling with sexual harassment and other concerns.

Maria Contreras-Sweet, former head of the Small Business Administration during the Obama years, is assembling a similar offer, according to individuals with knowledge of the talks. Lionsgate and Viacom, two companies that have been mentioned as potential

Ranking This Christmas’ Oscar Movies, From ‘The Post’ to Hugh Jackman’s Vanity Musical

Ranking This Christmas’ Oscar Movies, From ‘The Post’ to Hugh Jackman’s Vanity Musical
Christmas movies suggest family-friendly, heartwarming tales, designed for peak holiday family moviegoing. And then there’s the other kind — the late-breaking, high-profile, A-list titles designed to hit the box office and Oscar voters’ consciousness. Some of these launched at prestige fall film festivals (“Downsizing,” “Molly’s Game,” “Hostiles,” “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool”); others are bonafide awards contenders (Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread”); and some, like Hugh Jackman vanity musical “The Greatest Showman,” will soon skid into either bad reviews or audience reaction, or both.

Inside Jamie Foxx's Birthday Party With Katie Holmes and Leonardo DiCaprio
Jamie Foxx's 50th birthday party was a star-studded affair, which included a rare appearance from his rumored girlfriend, Katie Holmes.

Foxx celebrated his big day at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, and also performed for his guests onstage, an eyewitness at the bash tells Et.

SAG Film Nominations Snubs and Surprises: ‘The Big Sick’ Gets Its Due, but What Happened to ‘The Post’?

SAG Film Nominations Snubs and Surprises: ‘The Big Sick’ Gets Its Due, but What Happened to ‘The Post’?
On Monday night, “The Big Sick” team might have thought all those months of relentless awards campaigning were a waste. A Norman Lear-hosted post-screening party became an inadvertent wake for a disappointed Holly Hunter, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily B. Gordon, and filmmaker Michael Showalter after the morning’s total snub by the Golden Globes.

Little more than 24 hours later, they have real reason to celebrate. The Amazon/Lionsgate comedy landed Film Ensemble and Supporting Actress nods from the SAG nominating committee — and that’s way more significant and predictive of ultimate Oscar support.

However, the shocker of the morning was Steven Spielberg’s supposedly powerful journalism valentine “The Post” was not only missing in action for Ensemble, but missing altogether: no Meryl Streep, no Tom Hanks. One explanation is that by breaking after Thanksgiving, both “The Post” and also-shunned “Phantom Thread” (no Daniel Day-Lewis!) weren’t seen by enough of the 2,500-member SAG nominating committee,
