Leonardo DiCaprio — The Blonde Whisperer (PHOTO)


Exclusive Details

0217-leonardo-laura-the-sun-01Leonardo DiCaprio keeps winning — both for his role in “The Revenant” and with the leggy blonde contingent, because he had another one in his ear at a BAFTA after-party.

The latest Leo conquest — Irish TV personality Laura Whitmore. They looked very cozy Sunday night in London, and while she is a hot chick and he is Leo … sources close to Laura say it’s not what people think.

We’re told Laura was working, interviewing celebs at the award show — and their convo was nothing more than casual, friendly cocktail party chatter. Leo would call that foreplay, but the source insists it was all “innocent.”

Still … Laura would fit right in with the rest of them.

Watch: Bruce Willis in Action Thriller 'Precious Cargo' Official Trailer

Watch: Bruce Willis in Action Thriller ‘Precious Cargo’ Official Trailer

Precious Cargo

“Sometimes things just don’t work out.” Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for the action-packed heist thriller Precious Cargo, directed by Max Adams, starring Bruce Willis as the villain. He plays a crime boss who hires a thief but then double crosses him and then gets tangled up in a big showdown. There’s lots of action, it looks pretty good if you just want to see some solid action, but I’m not sure about the rest of it. The full cast includes Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Claire Forlani, John Brotherton, Lydia Hull, Daniel Bernhardt, Ashley Kirk and Nick Loeb. I hope this is actually as fun as the trailer makes it look. Enjoy.

Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Max Adams’ Precious Cargo, found on IGN’s YouTube:

Precious Cargo

After a botched heist, Eddie (Bruce Willis), a murderous crime boss, hunts down the seductive thief Karen (Claire Forlani) who failed him. In order to win back Eddie’s trust, Karen recruits her ex-lover and premier thief Jack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to steal a cargo of rare precious gems. But when the job goes down, allegiances are betrayed and lines are crossed as Jack, Karen, and Eddie face off in a fateful showdown. Precious Cargo is directed by American filmmaker Max Adams, making his directorial debut after a few shorts previously. Adams also served in Operation Iraqi Freedom (the Iraq War). The screenplay is written by Paul V. Seetachitt and Max Adams. Lionsgate & Grindstone will release Precious Cargo in theaters + on VOD starting April 22nd this spring.

First Trailer for UK Sci-Fi Action Man vs Machine ‘Kill Command’ Movie

First Trailer for UK Sci-Fi Action Man vs Machine ‘Kill Command’ Movie

Kill Command Trailer

“Some programmer screwed up somewhere.” Vertigo Films has released the first trailer for Steven Gomez’s Kill Command, a science fiction horror thriller about man eating machines pitted against helpless humans – pretty much. The film stars English actress Vanessa Kirby as some kind of cyborg, Danish actor Thure Lindhardt, plus David Ajala, Tom McKay, Bentley Kalu and Mike Noble as an elite unit of Marines that goes in for an exercise and discovers they’re in for a death match with some very creepy, nasty robots. This looks kind of awesome! I’m actually looking forward to seeing this, nice surprise sci-fi discovery. The VFX are impressive – I’m kinda creeped out. Everything about it looks solid, might be entertaining. Identify!

Here’s the first trailer (+UK poster) for Steven Gomez’s Kill Command, found via The Movie Box:

Kill Command UK Quad

Kill Command is a sci-fi action thriller set in a near future, technology-reliant society that pits man against killing machines. Against this backdrop an elite army unit is helicoptered to a remote, off-the-grid island training facility. What starts out as a simple training exercise for Captain Bukes and his tight-knit unit, descends into a terrifying battle to the death, as the marines discover the island is overrun by an enemy that transcends the human concept of evil. Kill Command is both written and directed by Steven Gomez, making his feature directing debut after a short film called Drip in 1996. The film doesn’t have a US release date set yet, but will open in Europe over the next few months, including in the UK on May 13th. Stay tuned for more release updates in the US.

Watch: Oscar Nominated Short Film 'We Can't Live Without Cosmos'

We Can't Live Without Cosmos Short Film

With the Academy Awards just a few days away, there’s no better time to watch one of the five nominated Best Animated Short Films. In addition to our top recommendation – Don Hertzfeldt’s World of Tomorrow (which you can watch here) – one of the other shorts available online is We Can’t Live Without Cosmos from Russian filmmaker/animator Konstantin Bronzit. The short follows two cosmonaut friends training for a mission in space. As Wired points out, this is “for every kid who went to Space Camp (or wanted to) and dreamed of one day doing real astronaut training with their best friend.” The short is entirely dialogue free and yet still conveys plenty of emotion. It’s now available to watch in full for free below – take a look. ›››
