In a really fascinating profile published by Variety today, actor and occasional performance artist Shia LaBeouf addresses a few of the more controversial aspects of his career (his arrest, drinking problems, etc.) and discusses working with some of the biggest directors in Hollywood (Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg). But one of the most intriguing revelations from the article is that LaBeouf almost starred in Suicide Squad — until the studio (and some script changes) got in the way.
What’s it like to watch Shia Labeouf watch Shia LaBeouf movies in reverse chronological order for a three-day marathon? Really weird.
Shia LaBeouf is pulling his latest Marina Abramović rip-off right now, and you can watch him do it.
"He was just wasted." Shia LaBeouf's apology/explanation tour has rolled out during the past few weeks, but while the 'Fury' star has finally spoken out about his more, uh, wild times over the past year or so, there are other people involved who haven't been quite as chatty. Last night, 'Cabaret' star Alan Cumming finally righted that on 'Conan.'
David Ayer knows that, with ‘Fury,’ he’s made a polarizing movie. It’s fascinating when not a director not only reads the reviews, but is openly talking about those reviews before a movie has even opened. Ayer is exaggerating when he says “the knives are out,” (‘Fury’ currently sits at 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and has its fair share of support to counter those that don’t – but Ayer is right when he calls it polarizing in the fact that the people who like it, really like it, and the same can be said for its detractors. ‘Fury’ sure does cause a reaction.
For the better part of 2014, Shia LaBeouf's antics were the talk of the gossip world. Can we even call them just "antics"? There was an arrest and an art installation, after all. Things were just weird, okay? The actor seems to have recovered from whatever was addling him, and he recently hit the talk show circuit in support of his upcoming World War II film, 'Fury,' a tour that inevitably results in his having to talk about, well, everything.
Shia LaBeouf has been known to utilize some ... how should we put it? ... unconventional acting methods. While he dropped acid for 'Charlie Countryman' and sent director Lars von Trier his own sex tapes for 'Nymphomaniac,' he was all about embracing the pain for his role in David Ayer's 'Fury.'
With all the action going on at TIFF, including praise for 'Foxcatcher' and 'The Equalizer,' let us not forget entirely about 'Fury.' While Brad Pitt's WWII drama isn't making the rounds at the international film festival, a new international 'Fury' trailer has rolled out to keep the film on our radars.
On Friday, the fourth movie in the live-action Transformers series of films opens in theaters. This one is called ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ and, like its predecessors, it’s poised to become one of the biggest films of the year, if not the biggest. What’s odd is that in the buildup for this movie, I haven’t heard Shia LaBeouf’s name once -- you know, the guy who was the star of the previous three ‘Transformers’ movies.
The coming of the first 'Fury' trailer from director David Ayer ('End of Watch,' 'The Fast and Furious') brings a harsh look at the toll of war, as Brad Pitt leads the charge against the Nazis with his own band of brothers, of sorts, and one mighty tank.
