Cop Leonardo DiCaprio has one hell of an assignment. He and fellow dick Mark Ruffalo are looking for an escapee from what this thriller keeps reminding us a “mental institute … for the criminally insane.” An inconvenient hurricane keeps them stranded on the godforsaken isle, all the better to experience the asylum’s oddball staff, Gothic trappings and a Nazi or two. It’s enough to drive anyone insane, and as the flashbacks pile up, it begins to appear the DiCaprio might an agenda hidden behind his anachronistic beard. Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of the best-seller from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) is best not taken too seriously. The security chief of the island is, after all, played by Silence of the Lambs‘ Buffalo Bill. The director is both paying homage and giving a sly wink to the campy film noirs like Shock Corridor he grew up with.
Extras: The Blu-Ray has a “making of” featurette and a segment on 1950s mental institutions.

Jaden Smith may be the star of The Karate Kid remake (which even Arnold isn’t happy about), but Will Smith‘s son wasn’t the biggest deal at the film’s Hollywood premiere. Little sister Willow stole the spotlight thanks to a leopard print outfit complete with boots, gold chains and an even more aggressive pompadour than Janelle Monae‘s—all this before the age of 10! So when is her movie coming out? See photos of the Smith family and Jackie Chan and Ciara in the gallery below.
Sandra Bullock has signed on to star in her first feature film after the whole mess with her marriage to Jesse James. And apparently, Sandy’s new movie Most Wanted has her teaming up with her Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds. They’re just keeping it in the family – the flick’s written by another Proposal team player, Pete Chiarelli.
The story sounds like quite the caper. Bullock plays a criminal suspect who is forced to go on the run with her FBI agent escort (Reynolds) when they’re ambushed on their way to the courthouse. Looks like Sandy changed her mind about quitting acting. We’d definitely give any movie she’s in a watch, especially if it has Yummy Reynolds in it too.

In case you missed it, the 2010 MTV Movie Awards went down last night. After a bunch of F-bombs were dropped and some interesting fashion choices were displayed, we walked away from the event feeling pretty sure about a few things: we’re convinced Robert Pattinson (photos) and Kristen Stewart (photos) are totally a couple (check out 80 Robsten photos worth of proof), Tom Cruise is only tolerable as Les Grossman and Jesse James is weeping Vanilla Gorilla tears after Sandra Bullock made all of our jaws drop with her charming speech, gorgeous dress and steamy kiss with Scarlett Johansson.
Yes, Sandra and Scarlett swapped spit onstage, but that’s not the first time Sandra has shared the stage and her lips with another beautiful actress. Earlier this year, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep kissed in an unforgettable moment at the 2010 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. We want to know which kiss you think was hotter! Sandra and Scarlett’s sensual peck or Sandra and Meryl’s open mouthed kiss?
Watch Sandra and Meryl’s surprise smooch from the CCMAs now.
Robert Pattinson (photos) and Kristen Stewart (photos) pretty much confirmed what we all already knew (and hoped) at the MTV Movie Awards tonight. There’s no way they’re not dating. Throughout the show, Rob and Kristen were leaned towards each other, sharing glances and giggling. When Kristen won “Best Female Performance,” Rob hoot and hollered as her named was called, she touched his stomach as she passed, and he checked out her bum as she strolled to the stage. Once she accepted her award and gave a trademark awkward speech laden with thumbs-up, he looked on with twinkly eyes and an adoring smile. Swoon.
Then, there was their “Best Kiss” acceptance shenanigans. Though the secret couple’s plan may have been to tease us for the second year in a row, Rob could not resist stealing a smooch. We’re unconvinced the kiss was scripted, as Kristen seemed legitimately surprised and peeved, while Rob looked far too pleased with himself. Note that his tongue even came out to do a victory lap.
Still skeptic? Here are 80 pieces of photographic evidence that Robsten (photos) is more than just every Twi-hard’s fantasy. [Photos: TheFABLife, Getty Images]
The 2010 MTV Movie Awards included some style highlights (Kristen Stewart‘s D&G mini, Sandra Bullock‘s mile-high Louboutins, Whitney Port‘s Yigal Azrouël yellow dress), but for every perfect 10, a belly flop lurked within arm’s reach. What was Katy Perry thinking?! Who let Lindsay Lohan out of the house? And would the real Christina Aguilera please stand up?! Here are our Top 10 WTF fashion moments from the star-filled evening.
10. Katy Perry
Offense #1: Katy Perry’s bright blue wig clashes with her bright yellow nails. Add hundreds of shiny rhinestones to the equation and you get something resembling a human sparkler.
Plus Side: She still looks hot!
9. Snowboarder Shaun White
Offense #1: We know the 60s and 70s are in style, but do we really want to see man nipple on our MTV Movie Awards red carpet? Leave the bare-chested vest to the gang members of 1979’s The Warriors.
Offense #2: We respect that Shaun’s hair has become iconic, but it was iconic for Robert Plant too!
Plus Side: We’d like Shaun’s vest if there were a shirt underneath it.
More fashion f*ck-ups after the jump. Read more…
People are known to take fashion risks at the MTV Movie Awards because unlike other award shows, anything goes. That means you’re just as likely to see glamourous gowns as you are assless chaps (or an assless tiger-print leotard if you’re Ken Jeong). Still, there are some celebrities who know how to combine their version of cool with some serious style, and unfortunately, Ken didn’t make our cut. But Sandra Bullock, Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart did. Check out their dresses and some other winning styles in our Best-Dressed Gallery below. [Photos: Getty Images]
