New Breathtaking Trailers & Posters For The Great Gatsby Arrive

19 December 2012 6:54 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann come the brand new trailers for The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker created his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. While I love the Robert Redford/Mia Farrow 1974 version, I’m eager to see what Luhrmann does with the latest big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald.s novel.

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, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks.  Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, »

Warner Bros. to Release The Great Gatsby in May 2013

21 September 2012 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Baz Luhrmann’s anticipated adaptation of The Great Gatsby was originally set to come out this Christmas, but earlier in the summer, we heard that Warner Bros. had made the decision to push back the release until summer 2013.

The studio has now officially set that release date for 10th May, 2013 in the Us and Canada, which is thankfully a little earlier in the summer (given that, technically, May is still spring) than I was expecting. And really, with this film, the sooner the better.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan star as the fantastic leads, supported by the excellent Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Amitabh Bachchan, and Elizabeth Debicki.

Miuccia Prada Designed The ‘Great Gatsby’ Costumes

23 August 2012 11:37 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

The designer was enlisted to work on the highly anticipated adaption! What do you get when you cross a talented designer, a major hottie and a classic period piece? Perfection -- well at least in my book! While I can't wait to see Leonardo DiCaprio on the big screen in The Great Gatsby, I'm also equally as excited to see the costumes -- especially after hearing that designer Miuccia Prada dug deep into the Prada and Miu Miu archives for the film! The designer collaborated with Catherine Martin, head of wardrobe and wife of the film's director Baz Luhrmann, on the twenties-inspired flapper dresses that we'll see on the cast -- including Carey Mulligan's character, Daisy Buchanan. For the adaptation, Miuccia reworked some of the classic pieces from the archives to assure that they were perfect for the period piece. This marks the third collaboration for the designer and Baz, »

Prada Provided Carey Mulligan’s Gowns for The Great Gatsby

23 August 2012 12:26 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

The secret is finally out, and it had to be Vogue who made the announcement for their September issue, because this is not something that could just slip out under the radar: Miuccia Prada provided Carey Mulligan’s gowns as Daisy Buchanan for The Great Gatsby.

Vogue interviewed Prada who exclusively revealed that she was not directly influenced by the story’s 1920s setting but rather tweaked her own designs (some 40 dresses) to be reflective of the period. Prada, who is granddaughter of the label’s founder Mario, has already worked with The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann three times before, so her involvement should not come as too much of a surprise. Costume designer Catherine Martin is no stranger to fashion collaborations either; here she used Brooks Brothers’ archive for Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and many of the extras’ suits.

7 August 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby has long been one of the most anticipated films of the year, with the anticipation heightening further still after the fantastic first trailer that landed back in May.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire in the leads, the film was to be released on Christmas Day this year in the Us, putting it in prime position for the Academy Awards next February, but now Warner Bros. have released a statement announcing that they will be moving it from its Christmas slot to a yet-to-be-decided prime-time slot in the summer of next year.

The decision can’t have been an easy one. On the one hand, this December has an incredibly packed line-up in the Us, with Hyde Park on Hudson, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Les Misérables, Zero Dark Thirty, Jack Reacher, This Is 40, The Impossible, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About The Silence of the Lambs

4 June 2012 5:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the wake of the announcement that NBC are set to make a TV series set before the events of Red Dragon called Hannibal and Lifetime are developing a Clarice Starling show, we thought we would publish ten pieces of juicy trivia you might not know about this tasty 1991 Oscar winning thriller.

1. Oscar Royalty

Despite being a thriller/ horror – categories which are not renowned for being successful at the Oscars, The Silence of the Lambs remains one of only three films to win the Big 5 at the Oscars (Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Actress). The other two are One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest and It Happened One Night.

This certainly contradicted the arguments put forward by critics one year earlier when they said the reason Goodfellas lost out on the gold was because of its violent content. The scenes of Lecter beating the police officer to within »

The Great Gatsby Trailer: Roaring Costumes

24 May 2012 10:26 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

In a week of new and exciting trailers, the first for director Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby must surely be the most thrilling of all, certainly for aficionados of exotic period costume and lots of twinkly things.

Based purely on tone this frenetic footage is likely to upset literary purists, but to those familiar with Luhrmann’s back catalogue (Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge!), the gaudy, flashy visuals and controversial choice of contemporary music (Jay-z and Kayne West) will not come as a great surprise. Thankfully two time Academy Award winner Catherine Martin’s costumes are showcased in all their Ott glory. Deliberately impossible to miss; this is 1922, the Jazz Age, dawning of the Roaring Twenties, when only the best was fit to squander.

As reclusive millionaire Jay Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio wears an particularly visible white linen suit, natural across the shoulders but taut across the chest. Jackets »

Sneak peek: Leonardo DiCaprio woos Carey Mulligan in first trailer for Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

23 May 2012 5:27 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has teamed up again with "Romeo + Juliet" director Baz Luhrmann for the third celluloid version of F. Scott Fitgerald's "The Great Gatsby." The first trailer for the 3-D film, which opens on Christmas Day, reveals the lush style for which Luhrmann is well-known. Art direction and costumes are by Luhrmann's wife Catherine Martin who won a pair of Oscars for her work on "Moulin Rouge!" in 2001. Thought that film was nominated for Best Picture, Luhrmann was snubbed by the academy. He has reteamed with Craig Pearce, who co-wrote "Moulin Rouge" as well as "Romeo + Juliet," to adapt Fitzgerald's 1925 novel about mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio) and his tragic love affair with the married Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), which is recounted by her cousin Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire).  »
