Which Film Was Illegally Downloaded 30 Million Times In 2014?

12/29/2014 6:00pm EST
Which Films Were Most Pirated In 2014?
The list of the most pirated films of 2014 has been revealed - and Leonardo DiCaprio's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" topped the list.

Martin Scorsese's film is based on a true story of the rise and non-stop pleasure-hunting descent of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), the New York stockbroker who, along with several other brokers, made a massive fortune by defrauding investors out of millions.

The Oscar-nominated film made $392 million at the box office and was illegally downloaded 30 million times between Jan. 1 and Dec. 23, 2014, according to piracy-tracking company Expicio.

'Dallas Buyers Club,' 'Gravity' & '12 Years A Slave' Win Big At
Dallas Buyers Club and Gravity were the toast of the 2014 Oscars on Sunday, but it was 12 Years a Slave which was named Best Picture on Hollywood's biggest night.

The Steve McQueen slave drama was a triple threat, also scoring Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong'o and Best Adapted Screenplay for John Ridley.

AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club served up a double win in the male acting categories with Matthew McConaughey earning his first Oscar for Best Actor and Jared Leto claiming Best Supporting Actor, while Cate Blanchett took home the Best Actress title for her star turn in Woody Allen...

Sandra Bullock Is Red Carpet Gorgeous At The Oscars
Sandra Bullock's hopes of winning Oscar gold for her role in "Gravity" may have been dashed after Cate Blanchett's win for Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, but despite her own loss, her film was the night's biggest winner with seven awards in all.

The actress was simple and elegant on the red carpet prior to the show, wearing a deep blue Alexander McQueen gown.

"Gravity" landed Oscars for Best Director (Alfonso Cuaron), Film Editing, Cinematography, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects and Original Score.

'Gravity', 'American Hustle' & '12 Years A Slave' Among Oscar Front-Runners

3/1/2014 4:05pm EST
'Gravity', 'American Hustle' & '12 Years A Slave' Among Oscar Fr
This year's Best Picture Oscar winner may well have to defy "Gravity" to take home the coveted trophy. Alfonso Cuaron's groundbreaking interstellar thriller leads a pack of nine movies vying for the top prize on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The film was one of 2013's biggest blockbusters, earning over $700 million dollars at the box office. The movie centers on a routine spacewalk that goes wrong. After their shuttle is destroyed, a brilliant engineer (Sandra Bullock) and veteran astronaut (George Clooney) are abandoned in space, tethered to nothing but each other as they try to get back home a...

Oscar Predictions: Does 'Gravity' Carry Enough Weight?
For the most part, the major categories at the Oscars are fairly easy to predict. But some years there are upset winners (‘Shakespeare in Love,’ Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Binoche, Adrien Brody, to name a few) that remind us that anything can happen.

This year is a little different. Who remembers a year where the race for Best Picture is down to three films, two of which are so close that they tied at the Producers’ Guild? It seems like there are some definite locks this year (Hello, Cate Blanchett) but you read it here: Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing.

That said, here are the most likely...

Oscar Voter Calls Sandra Bullock 'Weak Link' In Revealed Ballot

Sandra Bullock
An anonymous Oscar voter has had his or her ballot revealed, and they had some unflattering things to say about several nominees.

The ballot is one of a handful The Hollywood Reporter will be revealing leading up to the Oscars on Sunday night. This particular ballot is from "a longtime member of the Academy's 377-member directors branch."

The director picks American Hustle as Best Picture and says making 12 Years a Slave would require courage, "if you made it in Mississippi in 1930." The director then snubs Gravity's Alfonso Cuaron for Best Director, writing, "I have seen things at the pl...

Sandra Bullock Will Earn Over $70 Million From 'Gravity'

2/26/2014 10:03pm EST
Sandra Bullock
A smart contract has Sandra Bullock cashing in.

The Hollywood Reporter cites sources who claim popular actress negotiated a 15 percent cut of Warner Bros.' take from Gravity on top of her $20 million fee. The film was worldwide hit and made over $700 million at the box office.

Hollywood Reporter's calculations have Bullock pocketing $70 million - and that's their low estimate. She stands to make even more with the home release and television airings.

It stands to reason that Bullock's lucrative contract is extremely rare. THR reports most actors and actresses have contract stipulations t...

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant engineer, is on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes.

The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone, tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth...and any chance for rescue.

As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse ...

'12 Years A Slave' Wins Best Picture At 2014 BAFTAs, 'Gravity' Is Night's Biggest Winner

2/17/2014 7:45am EST
12 Years a Slave
12 Years a Slave won the Best Film award at this year's British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards in London on Sunday, but the night belonged to Alfonso Cuaron's astronaut thriller Gravity.

The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a pair of astronauts fighting for their lives after a freak accident during a space walk, was the big winner, pulling in six awards, including Best British Film, Best Director (Cuaron), and the awards for visual effects, sound, music and cinematography.

Thanks to the top honor, Cuaron is now the frontrunner for the Best Director Oscar after his win for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures. Last year's winner, Ben Affleck ("Argo"), presented the director with the award.

"What you cannot see from up there (in space) is this bizarre experiment of nature that is the human experience," Cuaron said during his acceptance speech. "That experiment is what directors try to sort out with our film...

'Gravity' And '12 Years A Slave' Share Improbable Tie At PGA Awards

1/20/2014 1:03pm EST
12 Years A Slave
After correctly predicting the Best Picture winner at the Oscars 17 times in the last 24 years, the Producers Guild Awards named two films for its best movie of the year.

Over the last six years, the film to win the Darryl F. Zanuck award also won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. This year, Gravity and 12 Years A Slave tied for the award, something that has never happened in the history of the awards show.

One of the reasons for the improbability of the tie is the fact that PGA Awards votes with a preferential ballot, meaning voters mark first, second, third, and so on - not just their...

2014 Oscar Nominations
The 2014 Oscar nominations have arrived in a busy week filled with Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Awards and SAG Awards. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences filled this competitive film year with quite a few snubs. Left off the Oscar list are big names like Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Oprah Winfrey and Robert Redford. Movies that seemed to be sure-things in September are nothing but a distant memory to Oscar voters like Saving Mr. Banks and Lee Daniels' The Butler. Who will come out on top? Well, it no longer seems to be handed to 12 Years a Slave because Gravity and American Hust...

Predictions: 2014 Oscar Nominations Could Be A 'Hustle'

1/15/2014 8:50pm EST
American Hustle
The Oscar nominations are relatively easy to predict most years, but there are always a couple of nominees that seem to sneak in out of nowhere. Remember Maggie Gyllenhaal in ‘Crazy Heart’ a couple of years ago? Or Jacki Weaver for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ last year?

That being said, there are a few question marks this year. Let’s take a look at who has the best shot at being nominated tomorrow morning.

Most likely:

’12 Years a Slave’


‘American Hustle’

'American Hustle,' 'Her' And '12 Years A Slave' Top Producers Guild Nominees

1/2/2014 11:38pm EST
American Hustle
American Hustle, Her and 12 Years a Slave are among the top films of 2013, according to the Producers Guild of America, which announced its list of nominees for the 25th annual Producers Guild Awards on Thursday.

The three films, along with Gravity, The Wolf of Wall Street, Blue Jasmine, Captain Phillips, Saving Mr. Banks, Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska were all given a strong Oscar boost as they were announced as the nominees for the 2014 Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award.

Golden Globe 2014 Nomination Predictions

Dallas Buyers Club
The Golden Globe nominations are tomorrow morning. The Globes tend to nominate big films and big actors. Case in point, the Globes nominated The Tourist. So, smaller actors in smaller films are likely to get lost. This is not the awards show for Fruitvale Station. That being said, there are always a few performances from new actors that can’t be ignored. Even though no one knows who she is, Lupita Nyong’o is still going to get a globe nomination. Here’s a brief overview of what I think will land where:

SAG Award Nominees Named: '12 Years A Slave' Tops Nods (Full List)

12/11/2013 11:14am EST
12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

Kudos to the SAG members for nominating James Gandolfini for E...

'Gravity' & 'Her' Both Win Best Picture At Los Angeles Film Critics Awards

12/9/2013 12:00pm EST
"Gravity" and "Her" tied for Best Picture at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LACFA) annual prizegiving on Sunday. Alfonso Cuaron's space drama and Spike Jonze's unconventional love story were just one of three ties at the event.

Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") and Adele Exarchopoulos ("Blue Is the Warmest Color") both won Best Actress awards, while James Franco ("Spring Breakers") and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club") shared the Best Supporting Actor awards. Leto is considered a frontrunner in the race for an Oscar for his portrayal of a transgender person dealing with AIDs.


Rumor Patrol: Lamar Odom's Infidelity Rap, Leann Rimes Faked Pregnancy, More

Lamar Odom
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

Lamar Odom Raps About Infidelity: It's been rumored for some time that Lamar has been unfaithful to wife Khloe Kardashian and has been using cocaine. So it's gotta be false that there's a video floating around with Lamar rapping about sleeping around, right?

Verdict: True. The video exists and even worse, he might be high in it. Odom slurs through lyrics in the grainy footage, which includes the line "...

Box Office Predictions: 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Should Set November Opening Weekend Record

11/22/2013 11:30am EST
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
1) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire- 170M Weekend, 170M Total

The Hunger Games is tracking to be the biggest opening in November, ever. Simply put, it is tracking to do better than the original, which already had a stunning 152.5M opening weekend in March 2012. Even if it matched the opening of the original, it would set a new opening weekend record for November. So, this is a pretty epic weekend. Catching Fire has a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, pleasing critics across the board. Midnight shows should be huge, and will help to push Catching Fire to new heights.

Box Office Predictions: 'Thor: The Dark World' Will Repeat At No. 1

11/15/2013 12:11pm EST
Thor: The Dark World
1) Thor: The Dark World- 40M Weekend, 145M Total

With no real direct competition, and good word of mouth, Thor is still “the movie to see” this weekend. It will likely dip in half, and still do far more than everything else in theatres. It will have to contend with the juggernaut that is The Hunger Games next week, so it’s good that it is mopping up as much money as it can right now.

2) The Best Man Holiday- 17M Weekend, 17M Total

As the weekends only new release, as well as being a holiday themed release, you’d think The Best Man Holiday would shoot to the top. Unfortunately, I’m not su...

Weekend Box Office Predictions: 'Thor: The Dark World' Obviously Will Take No. 1

11/7/2013 7:10pm EST
Thor: The Dark World
1) Thor: The Dark World- 75M Weekend, 75M Total

It’s almost an unprecedented move. A summer blockbuster is opening in November. The good news is that the Top 10 films of November (All Time) are almost entirely franchise films. However, most of those are Harry Potter or Twilight films. There really isn’t a superhero sequel in November, ever. That being said, five films have managed to gross over 100M on their opening November weekends. Thor has already been doing some great overseas business, and managed some good reviews. The original opened to 65M, and it’s safe to say the sequel will bea...

Box Office Predictions: 'Ender's Game' or Will 'Free Birds' Fly?

10/31/2013 8:00pm EDT
Ender's Game
1) Ender's Game- 25M Weekend, 25M Total

My gut instinct is that Enders Game is going to disappoint this weekend. Adobe started tracking social media responses to upcoming films, and singled Enders Game out as one of the films most likely to crash and burn this season. I’m going to lowball this, but other prognosticators think this can do over 30M.

2) Free Birds- 22M Weekend, 22M Total

I see a lot of low numbers for Free Birds, but the marketplace is very largely adult right now. Even Enders Game doesn’t feel like a kids movie, so I don’t know if families will flock to it or not. November...

Box Office Predictions: ‘Bad Grandpa’ Will Make An Impact

10/25/2013 10:42pm EDT
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
1) Bad Grandpa- 35M Weekend, 35M Total

Entering into a rather serious Top 10 is Bad Grandpa, which is looking to draw in an underserved comedy audience. Specifically, the young male comedy audience. This strategy has worked well for the Jackass films in the past. Jackass 3D opened to 50M, Jackass 2 did 29M. Bad Grandpa is tracking well, and will dominate due to a lack of direct competition.

2) Gravity- 21M Weekend, 200M Total

Gravity is looking to crack 200M this weekend. Another 30% drop to 21M will put it in striking distance. A pretty amazing feat for a film in October, starring only ...

Wikileaks Drama 'The Fifth Estate' Is A Box Office Flop, 'Gravity' Prevails Again

10/21/2013 8:28am EDT
The Fifth Estate
"The Fifth Estate" earned just $1.7 million at the U.S. box office over the weekend, making it the worst major debut of the year so far and an official film flop.

The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and centers on the controversial whistleblowing website.

Earlier this month, the film tanked in the United Kingdom, earing a mere $753,000 in its opening weekend.

"The Fifth Estate," directed by Bill Condon, cost DreamWorks $26 million to produce. Despite opening in 1,500 theaters, it failed to draw moviegoers and wound up in eigth place at the box office.

Box Office: 'Gravity' Should Prevail Over 'Carrie' Remake

10/18/2013 11:10am EDT
1) Gravity- 31M Weekend, 165M Total

After dipping a mere 22% last week, Gravity is actually gaining back some of the IMAX screens it lost to Captain Phillips. Another similar drop for Gravity should keep it firmly in first place.

2) Carrie- 18M Weekend, 18M Total

The problem with Carrie is that it is a remake. And they’ve tried to bring Carrie back before (anyone remember Carrie 2?) and it hasn’t worked out well for anyone. The preview makes it seem like critics are loving it, but it only has a 48% on Rotten Tomatoes. It should do OK this weekend, but I don’t think it’s a smash hit.

3) ...

'Gravity' Tops Weekend Box Office For Second Week In A Row, 'Machete Kills' Bombs

10/14/2013 9:50am EDT
George Clooney and Sandra Bullock's space thriller Gravity has topped the box office for the second week in a row.

The film, about a pair of astronauts on a spacewalk that goes horribly wrong, topped Tom Hanks' new drama Captain Phillips and Robert Rodriguez' Machete sequel, Machete Kills.

"Gravity" took in $44 million this weekend to put it in the green, surpassing its $100 million budget by $23 million.

Hanks' pirate thriller, based on the true story of the 2009 hijacking of the Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates, pulled in roughly half of it's cost with a $26 million opening; while fami...

'Gravity' Is The Best Cinematic Experiences In Years

10/8/2013 3:11pm EDT
In case you’ve been away from life, you might not know that Gravity has been lauded by critics as not just the best movie of the year, but one of the best cinematic experiences in years. I think that second point is more important, because Gravity does something truly unique. It provides a film so intensely cinematic, that you really do need to see it on the largest screen possible. Waiting for home video is just not an option here. Torrenting the film and watching it on your computer? Well, you’re an asshole.

Gravity tells the story of two astronauts, Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), the rook...
