"Could it all be true?"
Director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby was originally going to be released on December 25th, until Warner Bros. decided to move it from a crowded holiday season to next May. Instead of getting the actual movie, audiences will instead get a brand new trailer, one that adds even more opulence and decadence than the trailer released in May.
The latest trailer does a good job upping the stakes, showing the self-made Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) putting up magnificent airs, including a believable and heroic backstory and lavish parties, all the while hiding his true history. His friend Nick (Tobey Maguire) would love to believe Gatsby, but ultimately warns him that "you can't repeat the past." Gatsby doesn't agree. all the latest trailers

Those that have read Yann Martel’s international best seller know that the big screen adaptation of Life of Pi has the potential to be as harrowing of an inspirational experience as its literary counterpart. The new, international trailer only seems to offer more evidence that director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) has delivered on that promise. Life of Pi is set to premiere this weekend at the New York Film Festival before opening in wide release in November. While made up of footage largely taken from the movie's first trailer, the latest trailer starts with the adult Pi (Irrfan Khan), who is interviewed by a young writer (Rafe Spall, replacing Tobey Maguire) and begins to narrate his own story of his younger self (played by Suraj Sharma), who survives a disaster at sea only to find himself sharing a lifeboat with a vicious Bengal tiger. The latest trailer may be a bit more emotionally charged than the first, however, especially for those that can't help but be swooned by Coldplay's "Paradise" playing in the background. every trailer a waterfall

1922. Nosferatu was released. Construction on Yankee Stadium began in the Bronx. Insulin first successfully treated diabetes. And Jack White and Jay-Z ruled the radio airwaves...wait, what? Well, at least, that's the case in the first trailer for director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel, Luhrmann's adaptation isn't the first to make it to the big screen. It is, however, the first to make it in 3-D. While Fitzgerald's story of love and class warfare doesn't seem like a natural fit for eye-popping effects, the first Great Gatsby trailer showcases the lavish spectacle Luhrmann has in store for audiences. Luhrmann's visual style is no secret to anyone that has seen his 1996 version of Romeo & Juliet or 2001's Moulin Rouge. Both also featured an eclectic soundtrack. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.23.12 by Ryan
The last time an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel of love amidst class warfare hit the big screen was 1974, with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Now, 37 years later, Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan are reprising their roles of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan — and in 3-D.
EW has revealed the first official photos of the two lead actors in character, along with a first look at their co-stars Tobey Maguire, who plays the novel's narrator Nick Carraway, and Joel Edgerton as Daisy's surly husband Tom Buchanan — all looking the height of 1920s decadence. check out the photos >> Posted 12.14.11 by Ryan
At this year's Comic-Con, Hugh Jackman revealed that after he was done shooting The Wolverine he would play the role of ex-convict Jean Valjean in The King's Speech director Tom Hooper's musical version of Les Miserables. While The Wolverine is now possibly delayed until Spring 2012, Les Miserables is on track to start in February, and Jackman has his first female co-star.
Broadway World reports that Anne Hathaway is set to star in the movie as Fantine, the ill-fated mother of Cosette who sings the popular "I Dreamed a Dream" in the first act of the musical. EW confirmed that Hathaway is in talks for the role. Reportedly, Jackman pushed for Hathaway, who, in February, sang the song "On My Own" from the Les Miserables musical to Jackman while co-hosting the Oscars. At the time, Hathaway joked that Jackman wouldn't sing with her after he "bailed on [her] at the last minute," but the pair will have a chance to sing together in the movie should Hathaway's negotiations go through.
Russell Crowe is still reportedly looking to join the movie as Inspector Javert. Crowe's interest in the role was first reported in July. Les Miserables was adapted by author and screenwriter William Nicholson (Gladiator). Affleck adds three to the thriller Argo; Baz Luhrmann adds two to Great Gatsby >> Posted 08.31.11 by Ryan
Ben Affleck is becoming as comfortable behind the camera as he is in front of it. Having decided only to direct 2007's Gone Baby Gone, Affleck signed himself up for acting duties as well on last year's highly lauded, and commercially successful The Town.
With the political thriller Argo, it seemed like Affleck was just in director mode again, first casting Alan Arkin and, later, John Goodman. Now Variety reports Affleck has cast himself in the lead role of CIA exfiltration expert Tony Mendez, the man behind the plan to pose as a fake Hollywood movie in order to rescue six American hostages trapped in the Canadian embassy in Iran. As they say in Hollywood, it's all about who you know.
Chris Terrio (Heights) wrote the screenplay, based on the 2007 Wired article "How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran". Arkin plays a Hollywood producer named Lester Siegel, while Goodman plays makeup artist John Chambers, who won an Academy Award for his work on the Planet of the Apes series.

Web slinging isn't Spidey's only trick, it seems. He's also quite good at Texas Hold'em.
TMZ reports that Tobey Maguire, who donned Spiderman's red mask in the recent trilogy, is being sued by a bankruptcy trust for more than $300,000. Brad Ruderman was a hedge fund manager who is currently serving time for a Ponzi scheme, and was a regular at Beverly Hills high-stakes poker games. The L.A. Times reported in 2009 that he had lost $5.2 million in investor funds playing Texas Hold'em.
At least $300,000 of that was won by Maguire, as evidenced by a wire transfer of that amount from Ruderman to the actor. The trust is claiming that since the game was unlicensed, any money made from it was ill-gotten gains and should be used to pay Ruderman's debts. The Associated Press reports that the bankruptcy trust is also trying to recover money from other players, including The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes. Posted 06.22.11 by Mandy

Bourne fans weren't exactly pleased when writer-director Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) revealed that that the Bourne 4 script he was working on — titled Bourne Legacy — will be a "stand-alone project" that wouldn't include the character of Jason Bourne but "a whole new hero," which Gilroy later revealed would be a new agent with the same training as Bourne. Gilroy also explained that he didn't want to replace Matt Damon, who had previously announced that he wouldn't do another Bourne without The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass. Greengrass dropped out of the fourth Bourne in December of 2009. Gilroy maintains that Legacy won't permanently replace Damon, leaving open the possibility of his return. who's up for the part? >> Posted 02.25.11 by Ryan
