With an Oscar in his hands, presumably Jared Leto has his pick of movies, and it looks like he's eyeing former Will Smith gig "Brilliance." The Fresh Prince dropped out last month, but Leto is in early talks for the movie that's based on the novel by Marcus Sakey, that's set in "a world where a rare set of people are born with extraordinary abilities and are called 'brilliants.' At the center of the story is a federal agent with great hunting gifts who is drafted to track down a terrorist, another such brilliant who intends to start a civil war." Woo.

Game of Thrones' Season 4 - The Mountain and the Viper'
We're back after a week off, and it's time to dive back into the wacky world of Westeros. There's another easter egg in the opening credits this week — Moat Cailin makes an appearance, the geography of the show growing with each episode. "The Mountain and the Viper," directed by Alex Graves (you might remember him from Joffrey's Purple Wedding), has promised us the trial by combat, the showdown and revenge we've been waiting for this whole season, and we're going to get it… right after all of these hideously boring monologues. The episode is a series of rather long, wordy, staid scenes bookended with bursts of bloody violence. A few of the monologues could stand to have been heavily edited, and time was checked during the show, a truly rare occurrence.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
At one point a few years ago, Paul Greengrass was looking to make a biopic on legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix with Anthony Mackie in the lead. But when the Hendrix estate wouldn't sign off on the project, it fell apart and everyone moved on. But now, things are moving again. Mackie is back to play the axeman, with Ol Parker ("Now Is Good") at the helm of the movie "which chronicles the last nine days of Hendrix's life."

"A man with no options suddenly has all the options in the world," goes the liquor-soaked advice of Dom Hemingway (Jude Law). And while he admits that he has no idea what that actually means, he nonetheless lives that credo to the fullest in Richard Shepard's wickedly wild and vulgar "Dom Hemingway." It's not a surprise that our first introduction to the character is during a monologue that he's delivering on the magnificence of his own cock, a work of art in Dom's mind, as he certainly has lived his own life with his dick in one hand, a bottle in the other, a cigarette in his mouth, cocaine up his nose and women with their legs spread, at the ready. But now there's just one problem—he's getting old.

Jude Law’s turn in “Don Hemingway” certainly got the attention of Playlist writer Kevin Jagernauth when he reviewed the film at TIFF this year. The story of a corrupt man (Law) being released from prison is a “brazenly R-rated and devilish” picture as recounted in our original review. The U.S. release isn’t until April, but the movie is hitting theaters in the U.K. next week which means a new clip from the film has arrived along with full soundtrack details.

There were few films at TIFF this year as brazenly filthy and outrageous as "Dom Hemingway," and certainly fewer as enjoyable. And while release date schedules dictate that the movie still won't arrive stateside until next year, overseas, audiences will be the first to dive into the fun, and a new trailer is here to highlight what's in store. But don't make any quick judgments on the movie based on this trailer which doesn't really do the tone of "Dom Hemingway" justice.
