You get what you pay for. And, in the case of Leonardo DiCaprio, money buys quality -- the 36 year-old actor topped Forbes' annual list of highest paid actors, earning $77 million from May 2010 to May 2011, finishing ahead of Johnny Depp ($50 million), Adam Sandler ($40 million), Will Smith ($36 million) and Tom Hanks ($35 million). DiCaprio's two big movies were 'Shutter Island' and 'Inception,' the latter paying him $50 million plus. Depp topped the list last year with $75 million. DiCaprio recently signed on to star in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' will next be seen in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar Hoover biopic in October, and is rumored to be circling Todd Field's Western 'The Creed of Violence.' [Forbes]

Director Drake Doremus' third feature, 'Like Crazy,' is a darling of the indie crowd, and with good reason. The film premiered at Sundance, got glowing reviews, won the best actress prize for star Felicity Jones and the Grand Jury Prize in its category. The sensitive film centers on Jones and Anton Yelchin as a pair of college students -- she's British, he's American -- who fall for each other, only to be separated when she's banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa. The film will be released Oct. 28 by Paramount. Check out the trailer after the jump.
