The Great Gatsby Confirms Composers Jay-z and Jeymes Samuel

31 December 2012 11:13 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Bullitts band founder Jeymes Samuel has confirmed his involvement in scoring The Great Gatsby adaptation. He is working alongside Jay-z in creating new music for Baz Luhrmann's latest film. Take a look at the message Samuel sent out to his Twitter followers.

Jay-z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #Classic The Great Gatsby! It is too Dope for words!

— The Bullitts (@TheBullitts) December 30, 2012

It isn't known how extensive their involvement in crafting this score will be, since Craig Armstrong (The Incredible Hulk, Ray) is currently credited as the composer. Perhaps Jay-z and Jeymes Samuel are working on new original songs for the soundtrack, although that has not been confirmed. Jay-z and Kanye West's song "Church in the Wild" was featured in the first trailer that debuted back in May.

The Great Gatsby comes to theaters May 10th, 2013 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, »

29 December 2012 9:41 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill were spotted hopping on a yacht in Sydney, Australia today. The Django Unchained costars, along with friends including Lukas Haas and Kevin Connolly, joined a party in full swing. Leo was seen chatting up his friends and some bikini-clad woman on board the ship, and high-fiving fellow revelers. The actor previously spent several months in late 2011 and early 2012 Down Under on the set of The Great Gatsby alongside Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton. The film won't be out until the Spring, but in the meantime, Leo is enjoying the success of Django.

27 December 2012 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Hedges

Cast: Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Cj Adams

Running Time: 105 minutes

Certificate: PG

Synopsis: A childless couple  bury a box in their backyard containing all of their wishes for the perfect child. Soon, a child is born, but little Timothy Green is not all that he appears…

Meet the Greens. A seemingly ordinary couple who want one thing more than anything in the world: simply to have a child, and not just any child, but their perfect child. As the parents, Cindy and Jim Green (excellently played by Hollywood mainstay Jennifer Garner and the gradually increasing presence that is Joel Edgerton) place a box containing their ideal child traits in the garden during a freak storm, in typical Disney fashion, their child appears.

There is something not quite right about Timothy Green (Cj Adams) who is more strange than miraculous.

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Zero Dark Thirty In St. Louis

26 December 2012 3:26 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The hunt for Osama bin Laden preoccupied the world and two American presidential administrations for more than a decade. But in the end, it took a small, dedicated team of CIA operatives to track him down. Every aspect of their mission was shrouded in secrecy. Though some of the details have since been made public, many of the most significant parts of the intelligence operation..including the central role played by that team..are brought to the screen for the first time in a nuanced and gripping new film by the Oscar®-winning creative duo of Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal.

Their account of bin Laden.s pursuit and capture, vivid yet faithful to the facts, takes the viewer inside the hubs of power and to the front lines of this historic mission, culminating in the special operations assault on a mysterious, suburban Pakistani compound.

But it is the lead-up »

Zero Dark Thirty 5 New Photos

26 December 2012 2:00 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Kathryn Bigelow‘s new film, Zero Dark Thirty gives a misleading impression that torture was an important part of finding Bin Laden, but it is one of three leading contenders (Lincoln and Argo) in the annual battle for Hollywood’s best picture Oscar.

The film falsely credits brutal interrogation techniques with having helped locate Osama Bin Laden so it is possible that the senatorial assault on Zero Dark Thirty will hurt the film’s Oscar chances, but it could just as easily fire up a voter base as well.

Bigelow and screenwriter/producer Mark Boal began work on a film back in 2008 and the political drama-thriller was shoved into the limelight when Bin Laden was actually killed during a raid of his compound in May 2011.

The film earned four Golden Globe nominations including Best Picture – Drama, Best Director, and Best Actress – Drama for Jessica Chastain (above) and had its premiere in Los Angeles, »

9 The Great Gatsby Hi Res Photos

26 December 2012 12:59 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

We have added a new set of high resolution photos from Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire star as the leading trio alongside a fine cast, headed up by Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke and Amitabh Bachchan.

The plot for The Great Gatsby is as follows:

The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Lead Down to Two Actors

26 December 2012 11:20 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Last month, Marvel's short list of actors to play the lead role of Peter Quill in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was revealed. The list included names like Joel Edgerton, Lee Pace, Garrett Hedlund and Les Miserables' Eddie Redmayne. Variety reports that the short list has gotten even shorter, with  Zachary Levi (left) and Jim Sturgess (right) emerging Marvel's top two choices for the role. The site also reports a third "unnamed actor" will also try out for the role. Sturgess was last seen earlier this year in Cloud Atlas, but has also starred in One Day opposite Anne Hathaway, 21 with Kevin Spacey and the musical drama Across the Universe. Meanwhile, Levi is best known for portraying the title character in NBC's spy comedy Chuck for...

James Gunn Shoots Down Guardians Of The Galaxy Casting Rumors

26 December 2012 9:30 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few days ago it was reported that Zachary Levi (ChuckThor: The Dark World) was in the running to play Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy. According to director James Gunn though, that rumor is completely false, and he took to Facebook to set the record straight. 

Almost everything in that Variety article on the Guardians of the Galaxy casting (and all the following articles based on it) was/is completely inaccurate. Just for the record.

I always thought is was a little strange that he would be in the running for the role, especially since he's already playing a character in the Marvel universe as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World. It didn't makes sense to me that Marvel would want him in Guardians of the Galaxy as well. Turns out they don't.

Gangster Squad - January 11th

Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and-if he has his way-every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop. »

Marvel's Next Star?

24 December 2012 6:46 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Jim Sturgess and Zachary Levi are the last actors standing for Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy." According to Variety, Sturgess and Levi have moved ahead of Eddie Redmanye, Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston and Lee Pace in the quest to play Peter Quill, a half-human, half-alien astronaut who leads the ragtag group of Guardians. James Gunn will direct the film.

Sturgess has made a name for himself in romances like "One Day," "Across the Universe" and the epic fall release "Cloud Atlas." Levi, however, is almost more interesting because of his prior connections to Marvel. The 32-year-old star -- who rose to fame playing the title character on the cult NBC series "Chuck" -- was initially cast in "Thor" as Fandral, but had to drop out because of scheduling conflicts with "Chuck." He was replaced by Josh Dallas, who subsequently had to drop out of "Thor: The Dark World" because of »
