Shia LaBeouf continued his insane public antics this weekend at the German premiere of Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac,' appearing with a paper bag on his head and refusing to show his face to photographers snapping pictures -- and that's not all.

‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ Trailer: Preview Seth MacFarlane’s Bloody New Western [NSFW]

Hot on the heels of yesterday's character posters, Universal has released the 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer, giving us the first footage of Seth MacFarlane's live-action western comedy -- and it is really, really taking advantage of that red-band warning. There's blood, loads of profanity, and plenty of that crass humor we've come to associate with MacFarlane's endeavors. And Sarah Silverman's playing a prostitute, so you can imagine how that plays out.

‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Blu-ray Will Include the Rumored Four-Hour Cut

There was a lot of talk before Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' hit theaters about the length of the film: the release had been delayed so Scorsese could get the runtime down to an acceptable three hours from what was said to be a four-hour version of the film, and although Scorsese never releases "director's cuts" of his films, we're hearing you will be able to see his four-hour cut after all when the Blu-ray hits shelves this year.

See the Cast of ‘Blossom’ Then and Now

'Blossom' debuted on NBC in 1991, giving 'tween and teen girls a new character to relate to: Blossom Russo, a teenage girl who lived with her two brothers and her father, and learned life lessons about abuse, drugs, and divorce -- not your typical family sitcom, to say the least. But Blossom wasn't your average girl, either, and that's what made her special. She was quirky, had cool fashion sense and, above all, she was relateable. The show ended almost 20 years ago, so join us for a look at the cast of this classic sitcom and see what they're up to now!
