Harley Quinn and Killer Croc from 'Suicide Squad' are heading for a TV show.
'Suicide Squad' characters are set to make an appearance in 'Gotham'.
TV producers are clearly keen to ride the wave of the DC comic adaptations' recent success as they have revealed they plan to introduce both Harley Quinn and Killer Croc into the series that first aired in 2014.

The series producers have teased that a future season could see the introduction of Harley Quinn.
Fox’s ‘Gotham’ has already introduced us to The Penguin, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, but there’s two prominent villains who haven't yet showed up on the Batman origin series, Harley Quinn and The Joker. While The Joker has long been teased and speculated upon, since the release of Suicide Squad fans have been left wondering wether his accomplice Harley Quinn will ever make an appearance.
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad
Speaking at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, executive producer John Stephens teased her possible introduction. “Perhaps not this season but in times to come,” he said. “A lot of those [DC Comics] characters, because they're in Suicide Squad, you're not going to be seeing them this season.

DC Comics' villains team up for an overcrowded action movie that never quite finds its tone. Writer-director David Ayer takes a serious approach to an absurd premise, while the actors inject sparks of bitter humour. But with a thin plot and characters that are only superficially developed, the film struggles to grab hold of the audience. At least there's plenty of whizzy action mayhem.
With everyone worried that the next Superman might turn out to be a terrorist, government agent Amanda (Viola Davis) has a crazy idea to turn the most violent criminals in prison into an elite black ops team. These include gruff marksman Deadshot (Will Smith), mentally unstable sexpot Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), archaeologist-turned-enchantress June (Cara Delevingne), Aussie killer Boomerang (Courtney), fire-maker Diablo (Jay Hernandez), swordswoman Katana (Karen Fukuhara) and man-monster Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Each of these psychos has a personal weakness Amanda and team leader Rick (Joel Kinnaman) plan to leverage to keep them under control. Meanwhile, Harley's main squeeze Joker (Jared Leto) is trying to help her escape. Oh, and a meta-human wants to decimate humanity.
Ayer introduces each character with his or her own mini-montage, including snippets of back-story and cameos from the likes of Batman (Ben Affleck). These flashbacks continue throughout the movie, stirring emotion into various characters' decision-making processes. But that's about it as far as depth goes, and the script never imagines anything more original than pining after a lost love, missing a child or feeling guilty about past mistakes. While this adds a bit of interest, it never generates any proper connections, either between the characters or with the audience.

Though she's become an A-list star with recent high-profile roles in 'The Legend of Tarzan' and 'Suicide Squad', Robbie points out that she's been acting professionally for nearly 10 years.
Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie has objected to her tag as an ‘overnight sensation’, pointing out that she’s been a professional in the TV and film industry for nearly a decade.
Speaking to Who magazine on the red carpet premiere in London for the DC Comics movie, the 26 year old Australian actress says that most people don’t realise she’s been grafting away at more minor roles for many years, and that terms like the one with which she’s been dubbed by many media outlets don’t help in this regard.

Paddy Power has the 'Suicide Squad' star to be the next Bond girl at 12/1, ahead of the likes of Emily Blunt and Emily Ratajkowski.
There’s been lots of speculation over the last couple of years about who will succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond, but less on the matter of who’ll be the next Bond girl.
However, it’s likely that a major star will play the traditional role, with rising star Margot Robbie currently the hot favourite with bookmakers. Australian actress Robbie, 26, is tipped for the role in a forthcoming 007 movie, which will be the 25th film in the franchise and the first for a brand new Bond actor. She’s currently the 12/1 favourite for a role in the notional sequel to Spectre, according to Irish company Paddy Power in a report in The Sun.

Don't worry, Jared Leto is still playing the Joker.
Jared Leto as the Joker - I was into it from the word "go," but now we even have a first look picture to get the online convo going. The actor's look for Suicide Squad calls back to an earlier Joker from the comic book universe.
Where is Jared?
The square hairdo and blurry, 80s-looking filter add a nice arty touch, but the camera Leto is holding seems to call back to one of the character's most iconic covers -The Killing Joke. It's one of the few origin stories for the Joker. The pic was tweeted on Thursday by Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who added the hashtag #whereisjared.

'Suite Française' has been miraculously adapted from one of the first pieces of World War Two fiction ever written, by one of the most tragic authors in history.
The new period romance starring Michelle Williams and Matthias Shoenaerts is based on a novel that survived World War II against the odds. Irene Nemirovsky was a well-known novelist in pre-war France, and as the Nazis occupied her country she began writing a sequence of five novels about life during wartime. But in July 1942, she was arrested as a Jew and deported to Auschwitz, where she was killed.
Matthias Schoenaerts as Bruno von Falk in 'Suite Française'
At the time of her deportation, she had only completed the first two books in the series, handwritten in notebooks that were collected by her daughters. Thinking they were journals, the women were afraid to read about their mother's wartime experiences, and left them untouched. More than 50 years later, elder daughter Denise looked through them, discovering the two novels written in microscopic handwriting over 140 pages. The two books were titled 'Tempete en Juin' ('Storm in June') and 'Dolce' ('Sweet'), and were published together as 'Suite Française' in 2004 along with notes from Nemirovsky including the outline of the next book 'Captivite' ('Captivity') and the titles of the final two books in the series: 'Batailles' ('Battles') and 'La Paix' ('Peace').
Continue reading: 'Suite Française' Adapts A Miracle Book
Even though it's made in a style that feels familiar, this World War II romantic drama takes a much more complex approach to the period, most notably in the way that it refuses to let anyone become a hero or villain. This is because author Irene Nemirovsky wrote the source novel at the time, not in retrospect, which gives it an unusual kick. And the film also benefits from an extraordinarily textured performance by Michelle Williams.
She plays Lucille, who in 1940 is living in the French country town of Bussy with her mother-in-law Madame Angellier (Kristin Scott Thomas). Since her husband is missing in action at the front, Lucille is feeling trapped in her life with the madame, who cruelly increases her poor-farmer tenants' rent even during these hard times. Then the Germans arrive to occupy the town, and officer Bruno (Matthias Schoenaerts) is billeted in their house. Initially a horrific presence, Bruno turns out to be a soulful young man who misses his family. As he composes music on Lucille's piano, she reaches out to him in friendship, surprised to find a spark of attraction. But things get more complicated when Lucille and the madame begin to help a neighbour (Sam Riley) who crosses the Germans and needs to be hidden from view.
Director Saul Dibb (The Duchess) shoots this in a fairly straightforward costume-drama style, with sun-dappled cinematography and lavish settings. But the film rises above the genre in the characters, who are never allowed to become the usual stereotypes. Both Lucille and Bruno are intelligent young people aware that they're in the wrong place at the wrong time, so it's hardly surprising that they are drawn to each other, and Williams and Schoenaerts spark vivid chemistry that never boils over into forbidden-love melodrama. Each of them is a bundle of contradictions, remaining sympathetic even when they make bad decisions. And Scott Thomas adds further texture as the harsh madame who reveals her own unexpected shadings.
Continue reading: Suite Francaise Review
During the Second World War, France was quickly and violently taken over by the German army. Now, under enemy occupation, the residents find themselves having to house and shelter their victorious enemies. Lucille Angellier (Michelle Williams) is one of these people, having to share her house with Commander Bruno von Falk (Matthias Schoenaerts). Despite being on two different sides of the conflict, the two find a strange attraction to one-another, and a romance begins to blossom. But Madame Angellier (Kristin Scott Thomas), Lucille's mother-in-law, distrusts the German officer, leading to a series of events that will test the strength of love and trust, in a time of war.

Smith is back and yes it’s better than ‘After Earth’.
If you’d been wondering what it would take to knock Fifty Shades Of Grey off the top of the US box office, it turns out the answer was Will Smith. Smith returned to the big screen this weekend in con-man comedy Focus, which managed to steal the No. 1 spot from Fifty Shades which had been dominating theatres since its Valentine’s release’
The comedy, which co-stars Margot Robbie now looks set to take around $20 by the end of the weekend, according to the Hollywood Reporter, after pulling in $6.4 million on its opening Friday. The film is something of a return to form for Smith who suffered a career blow when After Earth bombed in 2012.

Both Will Smith and Margot Robbie found themselves drawn to the plot for very different reasons.
To follow up their hit comedy Crazy Stupid Love, writer-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa have merged the con-artist heist thriller with the romantic-comedy genre; a move that was Will Smith's first encouragement with getting involved with the movie.
Will Smith and Margot Robbie star in 'Focus'
Will Smith was drawn to the material both because of the filmmakers and the subject matter. "When I read Focus it was so interesting because it's so many different kinds of movie," he said. "Glenn and John completely ignore genre, so it's a heist film but then it will be a bizarre comedy for awhile and then it's really serious and there is great action. And then there's a wonderful love story in the centre of the film. We would be in scenes sometimes and we would be like, 'This is serious right?' and they'd be like, 'Yeah, but have fun with it.'"
Continue reading: 'Focus' Starring Will Smith Teaches The Art Of The Con
A very odd blend of caper action, dark drama and romantic comedy, this slickly made con-artist romp never quite finds its stride. There's a merciful vein of sharp wit in the script, thanks to writer-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy Stupid Love) and a spiky performance from Margot Robbie. But Will Smith's presence leaves everything feeling rather tame, compromising his character by making him a nice-guy crook rather than the unpredictable black-comedy protagonist he really should have been.
It opens as the wide-eyed Jess (Robbie) approaches veteran grifter Nicky (Smith) about learning the art of the con. She follows him to New Orleans for some major pickpocketing and double-crossing in the run-up to a big football championship, but Nicky unceremoniously dumps her afterwards. Three years later, they meet again in Buenos Aires, where both appear to be running scams centred around the Formula One team owned by Garriga (Rodrigo Santoro), who's never far from his right-hand goon (Gerald McRaney). With help from his old pal Farhad (Adrian Martinez), Nicky sets out to run his sting. But Jess is a distraction, and the stakes are too high for him to take his eye off the game.
While it's one of the running gags, Nicky's soft centre is a serious problem here, making the movie feel like a vanity project for Smith, who seems far too determined to be sympathetic. (Ficarra and Requa know how to make an anti-hero likeable: see Bad Santa.) Instead, Smith is a jarring combination of beefy physicality, fast-talking thievery and squidgy emotions. Robbie is able to more effectively merge Jess' gung-ho personality with her gleeful criminality, but when they're both together on-screen it's impossible not to feel like everything about the characters' relationship is a big con. So we wait for the script to reveal its clever twists and turns. But they're surprisingly few and oddly inconsequential.

The actor explores his role in Craig Zobel's three-actor dystopian thriller 'Z for Zachariah'.
Chiwetel Ejiofor is set to star in a chilling adaptation of Robert C. O'Brien's apocalyptic novel 'Z for Zachariah', and while he is highly respected for his versatility in acting roles, he admits he found taking on the role in the three-man thriller to be a challenge.

Ejiofor attracted some serious award nominations for his role as Solomon Northup in '12 Years A Slave' and he's continuing to take on more and more impressive roles. Playing one of just three characters, he stars in the Craig Zobel's upcoming dystopian adventure 'Z for Zachariah', and while it does seem like an awful lot of pressure for this stellar actor, he seems more than thrilled about being given the opportunity.

See the final cast of Focus in action in this brand new teaser.
Will Smith and Margot Robbie co-star in Focus, an intense crime tail about a con-artist, who takes a promising young “intern” under his wing ahead of the biggest hit of his career. Plot twist during the, we’ll call it training, Nicky Spurgeon (Smith) falls for Jess Barrett (Robbie) and things reach a whole new level of complicated.
Apparently Will Smith was a second choice for the male lead, but we will most definitely take it.
You might remember Robbie from her star-making turn in The Wolf of Wall Street and this film looks like a kind of Wolf meets Hitch in both plot and execution. The story comes courtesy of writing/directing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (of Crazy, Stupid, Love fame). According to Entertainment Weekly, a number of actors have been linked to the project, including Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart and Ryan Gosling/Emma Stone. Judging solely from the trailer, the final cast works beautifully. Check out the whole thing below.

No playboy cover for Robbie...
Margot Robbie has come a long way from the quiet Australian suburban paradise that is Neighbours – the former Ramsey Street resident recently starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in Martin-Scorcese-directed The Wolf of Wall Street, and is, as you can imagine, in quite some demand.
Margot Robbie is in demand following The Wolf of Wall Street
The confident actress isn’t willing to do anything though. For instance, just because she appeared nude in Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated 3-hour debauchery festival, doesn’t mean she’s stripping off for anyone, as Hugh Hefner found out when she flat-out rejected the chance to do a Playboy spread.

At age 71, Martin Scorsese proves with this riotous romp that he's one of the most energetic, audacious filmmakers working in America at the moment. And with his long-time 74-year-old editor Thelma Schoonmaker, he has created one of the most entertaining cautionary tales in recent memory. Not only does it highlight an unruly period in banking history, but it has a lot to say about where we are now.
This is the true story of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), who was 21 when he got his first job on Wall Street in the rough-and-tumble 1980s. Thanks to his illicit deals, he was a multi-millionaire within five years, tutored by a jaded veteran (McConaughey) and assisted by an enthusiastic novice (Hill). Along the way, he also swaps for a much more glamorous wife (Robbie), whose British aunt (Lumley) becomes part of his scam to stash his cash with a shady Swiss banker (Dujardin). But with an FBI agent (Chandler) on his trail, Jordan suspects that the high life can't go on forever.
At just under three hours long, the film sometimes feels like it is wallowing in the excessive sex and drugs along with these Wall Street criminals. But there's a jagged undercurrent to everything: all of this hedonism may look like fun, but someone is paying the price. The film is an often thrilling series of set-pieces that roll out in waves of comedy, tragedy and farce as these people play on the edge of an abyss. And it's great to see scenes play out in real time, with deep conversations, riotous comedy riffs and characters who are full of conflicting layers.
Continue reading: The Wolf Of Wall Street Review
It's a wild ride of drinking, drugs, debauchery and deception when the ambitious Jordan Belfort decides that he wants to be one of the rich kids. Starting out his stockbroker business in a small office with a handful of employees, his aims are simple; target only the richest people in the country. It isn't long before Belfort and his team find themselves with more money than they know what to do with and begin to live their lives manically high off the success. However, Belfort hasn't exactly been making what you'd call an honest living and pretty soon the secrets of his fraudulent profits and money laundering draws attention from the authorities. And not only that, his disregard for others' sufferings means he's got a lot more to lose than his beloved business.
'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a gritty white-collar crime drama based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, a former stockbroker who served 22 months in prison for his fraudulent activity in 1998 and subsequently wrote two memoirs entitled 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Catching the Wolf of Wall Street'. The new movie has been directed by the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') and written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules').
The Aussie actress got caught up in the moment during filming and slapped Leo hard on the face
Margot Robbie apparently likes to get thoroughly caught up in her characters whilst filming, or at least that was the case during filming for her new film The Wolf of Wall Street. Speaking with GQ (via Metro), the Australian actress revealed that she got a little too carried away in a scene with co-star Leonard DiCaprio and slapped him hard and firmly right across the face.
Fortunately for Margot, Leo didn't mind the slap
"I got a little lost in the moment. I slapped his face and said, ‘F**k you!’ There was a stunned silence then they all burst out laughing," the 23-year-old actress told the magazine. "I’d thought they were going to sue me. I apologised profusely but Leo said, ‘That was brilliant. Hit me in the face again!"

Smith has been accused of cheating on his wife of 16-years, Jada Pinkett Smith, with co-star Margot Robbie
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage is often under scrutiny from various different sources and once again their union looked under threat when Star Magazine ran a story stating that Will may be hooking up with one of his co-stars. After an intimate photo shoot for their upcoming film Focus, Smith and Aussie actress Margot Robbie were reportedly seen getting heavy handed with each other and the rumour mill began spinning overtime. It turns out though that the co-stars are nothing more than that and the Smith union is under no threat.
Will and Margot were only fooling around and his 16-year marriage is not under threat
Will's wandering eye had reportedly landed the Smith family in a multi-million dollar divorce battle, Star first reported, but since this claim was made there has been an onslaught of press saying quite the contrary. Despite appearing together in a number of raunchy photographs taken during the wrap party for their new film, sources have insisted that the pair were just messing around and there is nothing to their relationship other than friendship. According to Us Weekly, the 42-year-old Fresh Prince and the 23-year-old former Neighbours actress "are not hooking up," and they have had no intention to do so either.

However, sources speaking to Us Weekly, have said Smith and Robbie are "not hooking up." Another source has stated the photographs were taken in "a photo booth on set that the producers got for everyone. It was the last day of filming and everyone was taking pictures.

Jordan Belfort started out his stockbroker business in a tiny office with a small group of people and had the intention of targeting only the richest people in America as their clientele. With such a small percentage of individuals lined up as hopeful patrons, their dreams of immense fortune and a life of luxury seemed embarrassingly unlikely. However, pretty soon the company starts to ooze more money than they can handle and it's parties, alcohol and women all round. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear to everyone that what Belfort was doing to earn his fortune is not entirely legal and he risks his freedom and his wealthy lifestyle when the FBI get involved.
'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a white-collar crime drama based on the two memoirs by the real Belfort, who was jailed in 1998 for a string of fraudulent offences including money laundering. The autobiographies have since been translated into 18 different languages and now the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') directs the screen adaptation which has been written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules'). The movie is set to be release on January 17th 2014.
The Wolf of Wall Street will surely become a major player during awards season.

Jordan Belfort is a successful stockbroker, multi-millionaire and motivational speaker from New York who had enough money to throw anywhere he wanted. He was arrested and jailed in 1998 for a string of fraudulent activities surrounding stock market manipulation including money laundering and mob infiltration. He served 22 months in prison after being given a sentence of 4 years, famously refusing to cooperate during the case which exposed massive corruption on Wall Street. His crime was fuelled by his loved of alcohol, parties, women and, generally, the finer things in life including his luxury yacht which was originally built for Coco Chanel. He wrote two memoirs which were published in around 40 countries and have since been translated into 18 different languages.

However, all that's about to change when his father lets him in on an incredible secret the day after a shambolic New Year party; all the men in their family can travel back in time and change things that have happened in their lives. Given that he is so clumsy around beautiful women, Tim uses this to his advantage, giving himself a second chance on first impressions.

When he accidentally slips up during one time warp incident, he discovers that Mary has never met him before and that several months of romance have completely vanished.

Leonardo DiCaprio has explained why he fails to hold down serious relationships.
Leonardo Dicaprio has been linked to shall we say 'several' of the world's most beautiful woman. Let's just leave it that. However, the 38-year-old has been unable to hold down a serious relationship for years: why?
The 'Wolf of Wall Street' actor has reportedly dated Bar Refaeli, Erin Heatherton, Blake Lively, Aferdita Dreshaj and Margot Robbie, though he tells the May issue of Esquire that working hard and maintaining a relationship is simply not an easy thing to balance. "Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship," he explained.
It's not difficult to take what DiCaprio is saying as the truth. He's easily one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood and since 2006 has starred in Blood Diamond, Body of Lies, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island, Inception, J. Edgar, Django Unchained and new movies The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street. Despite all that effort, Leonardo still regards himself as being incredibly fortunate to be in the position he's in. "I always thought of myself as the underdog, because I didn't have nice enough clothes or maybe my hair didn't look good" he explained, adding, "And so you have to understand-getting your foot in the door is like winning the lottery. It's literally like winning the lottery if you get to have a career [In Hollywood]."
