Matthew McConaughey is dapper in a suit while attending the 2018 CinemaCon Gala Opening Night Event: Sony Pictures Highlights Its 2018 Summer and Beyond Films at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Monday (April 23) in Las Vegas.

The 48-year-old actor was joined by Studio 8 boss and producer Jeff Robinov as they hit the stage to debut a first look at the trailer for their upcoming film White Boy Rick.

The flick, which also stars Bel Powley and Jennifer Jason Leigh, is set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs. The film is based on the true story of a blue-collar father (McConaughey) and his teenage son, Rick Wershe (Richie Merritt), who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to a life in prison.

White Boy Rick is set for a limited release on Sept. 14 and a wide release on Sept. 21!

Did Katy Perry Hint She's Officially Back with Orlando Bloom?

Did Katy Perry just confirm that she’s officially back together with Orlando Bloom?

When interviewed by ET, the subject of dating contestants on American Idol came up.

“No, I’m sorry I have been spoken for and speak for myself. And I’m very happy!” Katy said in response to if she would ever date a contestant.

Then, when asked if she was spoken for, Katy responded, “Yeah, girl, of course I am!”

Katy was also asked if she was a “Mrs. Broom,” referring an Instagram post she shared of Orlando Bloom holding a broom.

“No, I’m not a Mrs. Broom,” she said, while winking at the camera.

Katy and Orlando appear to be an on-again couple, but have not confirmed the news.

Leonardo DiCaprio & Quentin Tarantino Tease 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' at CinemaCon 2018!

Leonardo DiCaprio & Quentin Tarantino Tease 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' at CinemaCon 2018!

Leonardo DiCaprio keeps it cool and casual as he joins director Quentin Tarantino onstage during the 2018 CinemaCon Gala Opening Night Event: Sony Pictures Highlights its 2018 Summer and Beyond Films held at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Monday (April 23) in Las Vegas.

The 43-year-old actor and Quentin, 55, teased the audience with details about their upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is also set to star Brad Pitt as the lead alongside Leo.

Quentin said the film’s two leading men, will be “the most exciting dynamic star duo since Paul Newman and Robert Redford. It takes place at the height of the counterculture explosion. It takes place at the time of the hippie revolution, and it takes place at the height of new Hollywood.”

Leo added (via LA Times) that it was odd promoting a “film that we haven’t done yet and haven’t shot a frame of,” but promised that Quentin would “transport us to a different era” with “one of the most amazing screenplays he’s ever written, which is saying a lot, because he’s written some of the masterworks in cinema history.”

Kerry Washington Reveals What Playing Olivia Pope Taught Her

Kerry Washington looks stunning on the cover of Essence magazine’s Mary 2018 issue.

Here’s what the Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On what playing Olivia Pope taught her: “I feel like whenever I play a character, I feel she comes into my life to teach me something. I’ve never had the privilege of playing a character for this long, but of the many things Olivia Pope has given me is this sense that anything’s possible, that there’s always a way through.”

On Time’s Up: “I have noticed in the last three years or so, we’re just reaching out to each other more. That’s been one of the most powerful parts, for me, of being involved with the Time’s Ups movement. It has changed the ways we operate. It changes what awards shows and parties feel like. We are becoming stronger as communities, as Black women, as larger circles of women of color, larger circles of women in Hollywood, larger circles of just people in Hollywood who give a shit.”
