We'll be honest, we had no idea what to make of Will Ferrell's upcoming IFC miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon,' crafting a fake soap-opera-esque narrative around such incredible star power as Kristen Wiig, Tobey Maguire, Jessica Alba and Ferrell himself, among others. Now, the first star-studded trailer for the project has emerged, and if anything, we're even more confused.
My oh my, and we thought Will Ferrell's upcoming miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon' had enough star power between Ferrell himself, 'SNL' alum Kristen Wiig, 'The Great Gatsby''s Tobey Maguire and Haley Joel Osment. Now IFC has announced the full cast, including some new, big-name additions!
Earlier this week we heard the surprising news that IFC's forthcoming Funny or Die miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon' had picked up some impressive talent atop the central Will Ferrell, bringing 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig and 'The Great Gatsby's' Tobey Maguire in to lead. Now, the production has added yet another surprising name in that of former 'Sixth Sense' star Haley Joel Osment!
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.
IFC has continued to make a strong push into original programming, given the continued success of 'Portlandia' and the upcoming premiere of Marc Maron's self-titled 'Maron,' but its latest upcoming miniseries project has some significant star power behind it. Not only will Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produce 'The Spoils of Babylon,' but 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig and 'The Great Gatsby' star Tobey Maguire will play leading roles!

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 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!
If things went according to plan, Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' would be hitting theaters next week on Christmas Day, and we might be having a conversation about how Leonardo DiCaprio could be up for both the Best Actor and Supporting Actor Oscar. Instead, the picture moved to May, and we're a little less than six months away from its release. But now there's a new trailer to hold us over.
