Director Baz Luhrmann's splashy modernization of the William Shakespeare classic 'Romeo and Juliet' was a hit with critics and tweens alike in 1996.
Besides being visually stunning, 'William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet' featured a few of today's brightest stars before they had hit it big. See what the cast is up to these days below.

Well, you did it Baz Luhrmann. Even with an enormous budget, outrageous costumes, beautiful actors, native 3D and a camera that can fly around and do just about anything, you still made watching 'The Great Gatsby' just as boring as sitting through 8th period English.
It's nearly the summer season (at least for movies), so it's surprising how quiet 'The Great Gatsby' has been in selling itself. Sure, it's going to be opening the Cannes film festival, but it's not being sold as a tentpole summer event picture. Regardless, the film has released seven new clips to get us excited.
A would-be writer settles in Long Island from the Midwest and is drawn into his millionaire neighbor's lavish and deceit-filled lifestyle.
A new series of 'The Great Gatsby' posters showcases exactly how you make a novel first published in 1925 (and frequently forced upon high school students) appealing to mass audiences: you fill it with as many stars as humanly possible. Six new character posters highlight six of the upcoming film's characters, letting you appreciate what a truly stellar line-up director Baz Luhrmann has assembled for his adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel.
'The Great Gatsby' has returned with its first ever TV spot, following a brief hiatus in promotions while Warner Bros. got its act together. But one thing remains the same -- this looks like it'll be the party of the year!
Leonardo DiCaprio wowed Japanese audiences during a video interview for 'Django Unchained.' No, he didn't reduce them to giggles with some crazy behind-the-scenes story or anything of that nature. Instead he was asked if he could pull off any celebrity impressions, which led to his incredible transformation into the devilish-looking Jack Nicholson.
There are few actors as hardworking and reliably great as Leonardo DiCaprio and there are fewer with such discerning taste. After all, not every actor out there has managed to work with James Cameron, Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Sam Mendes, Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. Filmmakers, audiences and critics alike all seem to love him with equal fervor...which means the news that he's taking a break from acting is enough to make us a little sad.
Though the film came out a couple days ago, Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' is going to have to make some tough decisions for its Oscar campaign ahead. It's hard when you've got three performances that could easily qualify for best supporting actor, but this new featurette makes the case for Leonardo DiCaprio's performance in the film.
The dazzling trailer for Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' sashayed online just yesterday, and if it whet your appetite for the world of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic, there's another treat from the Warner Bros. release waiting for you today -- six brand-new posters we've collected featuring all of the main characters!
