Leonardo DiCaprio sells art to save the planet. Jay-Z’s Life and Times YouTube channel went behind the scenes at the 11th Hour Art Auction, a fundraiser benefiting DiCaprio’s wildlife charity foundation. The auction, which raised more than $38 million, featured works donated from artists like George Condo, Mark Grotjahn, and Robert Longo.
“Out of the Furnace”, a starring vehicle for Christian Bale, has unleashed its first trailer online. Set to Pearl Jam’s “Release”, the video not only presents the plot pretty clearly, but also shows off impressive cast members that include Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Willem Dafoe, Woody Harrelson and Forest Whitaker.
Penned and directed by “Crazy Heart” helmer Scott Cooper, the film introduces Bale as steel-mill worker Russell Baze, who goes in search of his brother Rodney after he mysteriously disappears under the auspices of a local crime boss. With nothing left to lose, Baze takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.
Among the producers of the movie from Relativity Media are “Prometheus” director Ridley Scott, Ryan Kavanaugh and Leonardo DiCaprio, who is set to produce and star in “Mean Business on North Ganson Street” alongside his “Django Unchained” co-star, Jamie Foxx.
Previously dated October 4, “Out of the Furnace” has been moved up to a limited release on November 27 before expanding to more screens on December 6.
Leo and co-star Jamie Foxx are teaming up again after Django Unchained in a new project!
Reunited and it feels so mean. Fans of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” should be pleased to find out that Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio will hit the big screen together again, in what sounds like a very different project.
“Mean Business on North Ganson Street” follows two police officers who team up to solve a string of attacks against the police department in a Missouri town. When the two detectives become targets, they take on the criminals for themselves, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story is based on the upcoming crime novel by S. Craig Zahler, who will also pen the script. While a director has not been announced, DiCaprio will also produce the film along with his Appian Way production partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran.
Leo was just one of the many celebs to hit twitter yesterday to voice their joy over DOMA being turned over by the surpreme court.

PanARMENIAN.Net – Leonardo DiCaprio is to honor Martin Scorsese at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Art+Film Gala, Digital Spy said.
The actor will pay tribute to his Wolf of Wall Street director’s life and career on November 2 at LACMA’s annual celebration.
DiCaprio said in a statement: “I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Marty on Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed and most recently The Wolf of Wall Street.
“I am thrilled to have my dear friend join us at LACMA and to celebrate his astounding cinematic legacy and leadership in preserving film for future generations.”
The artist David Hockney will also receive a special award at this year’s Art+Film Gala.
Scorsese has received many prestigious awards throughout his career, including an Academy Award for ‘Best Director’ and four Golden Globes.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens on November 15 in US cinemas.
Baz Luhrmann’s lavish cinematic version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan appears to have an August 27 release date for Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD according to new pre-order listings at online retailer Amazon.com.
The Great Gatsby was made for around $105 million and has gone on to earn $141.6 million domestically and $301.9 worldwide. It was released theatrically on May 10 so the late August release date just ahead of Labor Day weekend seems like the perfect spot to drop it.
More information regarding the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray combo pack release of The Great Gatsby will be added when Warner Bros. makes their official home video announcement.
Leonardo DiCaprio has apparently decided against moving from his Hollywood Hills mansion because he doesn’t want to risk damaging a valuable dinosaur skeleton he had installed at the property.
It’s been claimed that the The Great Gatsby star was considering putting his $13 million pad on the market after relations between his neighbours became tense following the Hollywood star’s apparent penchant for late partying.
“He’s had some huge parties at his house and he was thinking of selling it after things got a bit tense with his neighbours over his all-night basketball games,” an insider told National Enquirer.
The 38-year-old is reported to have backtracked on the move after finding out the prized artefact was worth more than the property and has instead, according to the magazine, vowed to calm down his partying ways in an attempt to smooth things over with his neighbours
Set for a November release, here’s Leo in the first trailer for the movie!
Leonardo, who plays the lead role of the infamous Jay Gatsby in the updated adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic story, has revealed that when he first read the book and saw a version of the film which saw Robert Redford take the main part, he didn’t understand it.
The actor confessed to Best Movie: ”I had read The Great Gatsby and seen the Redford film, but to be honest, I hadn’t really loved it. I couldn’t understand it.”
But thankfully, renowned director Luhrmann had set his sights on casting the actor for the role of the hopeless romantic in his adaptation, and encouraged him to give Gatsby another try.
Leonardo Dicaprio Fan is now at it’s new home at the Fan Sites Network and I couldn’t be happier. To celebrate, I have added images from the rest of Leo’s 2012 and his 2013 appeareances to the gallery. We’re still missing some but I’ll fill those in as soon as I possibly can. A huge thanks to DeAdele and Helen for some of the images!
