Fresh off The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio is rolling in the dough again – but this time it's the 1990s, baby.

The brand-new trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, which reteams DiCaprio with director Martin Scorsese for the fifth time, shows the star partying hard with his shady stockbroker buddies – while the FBI is sniffing around.

DiCaprio's voiceover kicks things off with a Goodfellas vibe: "The year I turned 26, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week."

Roger Ebert Praised by Filmmakers – and The President

Originally posted 04/05/2013 11:10AM

He sometimes may have roundly criticized them, but actors and filmmakers alike gave high thumbs up to the late Roger Ebert, who died Thursday after a lengthy fight with cancer.

Fellow Chicagoan President Barack Obama spoke for many when he said in a statement, "For a generation of Americans – and especially Chicagoans – Roger was the movies. When he didn't like a film, he was honest; when he did, he was effusive – capturing the unique power of the movie to take us somewhere magical."

Added the Chief Executive: "Even amidst his own battles with cancer, Roger was as productive as he was resilient – continuing to share his passion and perspective with the world. The movies won't be the same without Roger."

Veteran Movie Publicist, Mom of Grey's Anatomy Star Dies

Lois Smith Dies of a Brain Hemorrhage

Originally posted 10/07/2012 08:00PM

Lois Smith, a much-admired veteran movie publicist and the mother of Grey's Anatomy actress Brooke Smith, died Sunday afternoon after suffering a brain hemorrhage due to an accidental fall, Deadline reports. She was 84.

The New York-based industry trailblazer was in Maine, where her husband, Eugene Smith, was set to be recognized for his philanthropic work. Smith fell down the stairs late Saturday night at the bed-and-breakfast where they were staying.

A maternal figure to both stars and journalists who tended to adore her in equal doses, Smith, along with Pat Kingsley and Patricia Newcomb, helped establish the publicity firm of PMK (initially known as Pickwick, it merged with Maslansky/Koenigsberg) as an A-list leader. As a publicist, Smith was as involved in shaping images as she was in promoting specific movies, and always with a personal touch.

Among her clients were Robert Redford (their professional marriage went back to the late '60s, when his star was launched with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), as well as Marilyn Monroe, Martin Scorsese, Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon and Whitney Houston.
