In real life, Matthew McConaughey is, by most accounts, a stand-up guy. You just wouldn’t know it from his movie posters. As eagle-eyed meme generators have pointed out, the Oscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club star has a habit of leaning on his co-stars in the posters for a number of his films.
The review embargo has lifted for the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' and it's not looking pretty.
Matthew McConaughey’s reaction to first hearing about the death of acclaimed playwright and actor Sam Shepard was caught on camera while the actor was on the red carpet for his upcoming film “Dark Tower.” “Sam Shepard moved on?” McConaughey asked the Associated Press reporter who broke the news to him.

It’s the moment Stephen King fans have been waiting for – his fantasy epic ‘The Dark Tower’ has finally been brought to life. After some teasers from its stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on Twitter yesterday, and some pretty cool motion posters released online, we’ve got our first proper look at the forthcoming movie. Elba plays the ‘gunslinger’ Roland Deschain, the last of his kind who roam the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, which exists in parallel to Earth, in search of the ‘dark tower’, the nexus of all universes.
Matthew McConaughey looks set to heat up the European Film Market next week. The actor is starring in The Beach Bum , which Spring Breakers' Harmony Korine will write and direct.

The Oscar-winning star of 'Gold' says the entire film set DISAPPEARED under water while shooting in Thailand. 'Gold' is in cinemas now.
Matthew McConaughey returns to cinemas this week in ‘Gold’ (out on 3 February) playing prospector Kenny Wells, a fictional character loosely inspired by real-life miner David Walsh who brought the Canadian stock market to its knees in the 1990s. Like Wells in the film, Walsh was a larger-than-life character – “a consumer of life” as McConaughey puts it – who died prematurely aged 52, so the 47-year-old actor filled up on life, gaining 47 pounds to look the part. It’s a stark contrast to the extreme weight loss he underwent for his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.
Many actors have criminal records, but Matthew McConaughey wins the award for having easily the best one. There they found McConaughey, pre-McConaissance, of course, ‘dancing naked’, and arrested him, the charges relating to the possession of marijuana and its necessary paraphernalia and resisting transportation. “I don’t want to rent a place there, but it was a nice stay for a night,” McConaughey said at the time.
This could possibly be the most Matthew McConaughey thing that Matthew McConaughey has ever done.
Universal has released a series of new character portraits for ‘Sing’, the new animated musical from the studio responsible for ‘Minions’ and ‘Despicable Me’, to help you put a face to a name. Directed by Garth Jennings (‘Son of Rambow’, ‘The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy’), ‘Sing’ is set in a world like ours but one that is completely inhabited by animals, and it tells the story of a plucky Koala who wants to host the world’s greatest singing competition.
Inspired by true events, 'Gold' tells the story of Kenny Wells (McConaughey), a modern day prospector, hustler, and dreamer, desperate for a lucky break. Left with few options, Wells teams up with an equally luckless geologist to execute a grandiose, last-ditch effort: to find gold deep in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia.
Each year, Forbes magazine brings out its list of the most overpaid Hollywood actors using a combination of data, weighing up the stars’ salaries against their movies’ financial return.
Matthew McConaughey has ditched his matinee idol looks for his new movie ‘Gold’. The Texan-born star shaved his head, piled on the pounds, and wore false teeth to play Kenny Mills, a down on his luck chancer who literally strikes gold in the jungles of Indonesia, for the film that hits cinemas this Christmas. The first trailer for the film from Stephen Gaghan, the writer-director of ‘Syriana’, suggests a retro-styled cautionary tale of greed and corruption in the vein of ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ and it’s exactly the sort of role McConaughey wanted to play after years of being stuck in rom-com purgatory.
Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts in a movie directed by Oscar-nominated Gus Van Sant should be a sure thing. The movie was made last year, and is set in the Aokigahara forest in Japan, at the bottom of Mount Fuji, known as the ‘suicide forest’ due to the number of people who go there to take their own lives (54 were recorded in 2010 alone). McConaughey plays a businessman who goes there to do just that, but meets another man, Takumi, played by Ken Watanabe, who is planning to do the same.
