HBO previously took us to the 1920s East Coast for all the booze and bullets of 'Boardwalk Empire,' but will its next great drama switch sides? 'The Hunger Games' and 'Captain Phillips' screenwriter Billy Ray has been tasked to develop an HBO series around 'Great Gatsby' writer F. Scott Fitzgerald's unfinished work 'The Last Tycoon,' but how far along is the project?
The Great Gatsby
Halloween is right around the corner, and if you're a movie fan, choosing your costume this year could be pretty tough. Will you go as Alien from 'Spring Breakers,' or make an old classic new again by dressing up as Carrie White from 'Carrie'? Don't worry -- we've done all the heavy lifting for you. Whether or you're a male or a female movie fan, we've put together this guide to Halloween costumes inspired by 2013 movie characters. We'll tell you what to buy and where you can buy it so you'll be the best dressed this Halloween.
When is a $70 million opening not a success? When its predecessor opened to $75 million four years ago. This is the predicament facing 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' which opened at number one at box office while being something of a disappointment.
No one expected 'The Great Gatsby' to take number one at the box office over 'Iron Man 3' this weekend, but it did the next best thing: it opened huge at number two. There is no shame in this silver medal.
We know what would solve 'The Great Gatsby's' mixed reviews -- replacing the entire cast with cats! Not that we're blaming the acting, we're just saying it would be a movie of cats in tuxedos drinking at parties. Can you even imagine all the shiny objects they would get distracted by? Cat flappers? Cats driving old-timey cars???? If you're having a hard time imagining all this, we made these posters of the 'Gatsby' cast as cats to help you along.
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.
Baz Lurhmann's 'The Great Gatsby' has been a while in the making. After originally planned for a release this past December, the film was swapped for a start-of-summer premiere in the hopes of better profits. Now we're only weeks away from seeing Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character Jay Gatsby, and we've got so much swag to give out in celebration.
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.
We can't tell what's more exciting -- getting to see some more mind-blowing footage from Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby,' or previewing some of the tracks from the official soundtrack. Whichever you're more excited for, you get both in the latest TV spot.
