I'll answer the question first. I might, though I probably shouldn't say that I might. For each year I make an internal plan to read all of the books on which upcoming films are based. Guess how many I usually get through? But given that I'd never trade F Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" for any film version that might ever exist, I should probably try and read source material quicker once I know it's going to be a movie. I weep proactively, for example, for anyone who sees August: Osage County first as a movie (if it's not good) without having previously known the brilliance of the play. With this year's "Adapted" crowd, I have actually had read/experienced at least five of them... plus all the superhero stuff, 'natch.

If you're a sucker for a lady or gent in uniform—you're welcome. In honor of Armed Forces Day today, where we thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country, we've decided to put together a fine (and we mean fine) group of celebs that have taken on a role in a film which required them to suit up in uniform. From Channing Tatum in Jump Street and Tom Cruise in Top Gun to Rihanna in Battleship and Demi Moore in A Few Good Man, there are plenty of hot stars in uniform for you to enjoy on this special day. »
Both Berberian Sound Studio and The Congress stand out courtesy of curious material, but neither trailer is convincing enough, leaving you intrigued but not sold, and also leaving the top three spots up for grabs. The Best Stuff 1. About Time As someone who steers clear of anything Nicholas Sparks or Nicholas Sparks-esque, the new trailer for the romantic comedy About Time is surprisingly charming. The concept is a bit cheesy, but the honest performances and genuinely funny jokes justify it. Plus I enjoy watching Channing Tatum and Ryan Gosling as much as anyone, but it’s also quite refreshing to see Domhnall Gleeson as the guy that wins the girl. 2. V/H/S/2 Full disclosure: I’m responsible for one of the quotes, but regardless of my bias how can you deny...

In fact, the star-studded genre thriller — which Soderbergh has vowed will be his last theatrical movie — is deadly serious. Rooney Mara plays an emotionally distraught Manhattan housewife struggling with the new status quo after her once-wealthy, white-collar-criminal husband (Channing Tatum) is released from jail. Her shrink (Jude Law) puts her on a promising new wonderdrug to cope, but any relief is accompanied by unsettling sleepwalking episodes… occasionally violent sleepwalking episodes. »

He may be best known as the anarchic animator, writer and director responsible for such movies as Monty Python And The Holy Grail, The Fisher King, Brazil and Twelve Monkeys, but Terry Gilliam is not above gracing the screen with his acting presence when the moment (and, more usually, friends) call for it. He’s hit Facebook to announce that he’ll be part of the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending.Gilliam offered no details on what he might be doing in the film, beyond remarking that he’ll be in a “small but vital part”.Jupiter Ascending finds the Wachowskis back in big-scale sci-fi territory, set in a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. But destitute young woman Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is destined for something greater – and that brings an assassin hired by the Queen of the Universe, none too happy that her reign is under threat. »

Fighting and driving enthusiasts (of both sexes) rejoice. The tyre-burning, high-speed Fast & Furious franchise is back once again with its latest offering, Fast & Furious 6 (hitting UK cinemas on 17 May). In this new franchise entry, Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) summons Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew to London in order to take on a team of mercenary drivers who have caused havoc across a dozen countries. Realising that Dom knows the only men and women in the world with the skills to get the job done, Agent Hobbs offers them all full pardons. High octane high-jinks consequently ensure. To celebrate the release of Fast & Furious 6, we've narrowed down our favourite action women in contemporary film.
We kick off our list with an actress who immediately springs to mind when we think of the ultimate female bad-ass, Michelle Rodriguez. Starting her career in hard-hitting boxing drama Girl Fight, Rodriguez blasted »

In The Time Traveler's Wife, Rachel McAdams played, well, that — a woman married to a man unburdened by the normal constraints of space and time. In The Vow, she played a woman who gets hit by a truck and forgets that she's married to Channing Tatum. Mash these two up, add in an adorably bumbling British guy (Domhnall Gleeson) and the director of Love Actually, and you will have About Time, the story of a time-traveler guy who keeps hopping around in the past in order to court his unwitting dream girl. This looks cute! But also, could we get Rachel McAdams a normal rom-com boyfriend? »

Dear Channing Tatum: Tim McGraw needs to be in the next Magic Mike movie. Thanks. The country crooner revealed his weapons of mass destruction during the Atlanta stop on his Two Lanes of Freedom Tour on Sunday, stripping down to a white tank on stage and showing off some serious, bulging biceps. Oh, Faith Hill, you, lucky, lucky lady. Between his ripped bod, a pair of tight jeans and his staple cowboy hat, it would be understandable if fans had a hard time focusing on the 46-year-old father of three's songs. "It just sort of exudes this sense of freedom," McGraw said of his tour, "and exudes this sense of rebelliousness a little bit, and the record itself has this optimistic sort of »
Leonardo DiCaprio The Great Gatsby movie box office: DiCaprio’s second biggest opening ever — but trailing Titanic in ticket sales The Great Gatsby movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel earned $50.08m at the North American box office this past weekend, including $3.25 million from late Thursday night showings, according to weekend box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. Despite mostly poor reviews — The Great Gatsby has a 32% approval rating and 5.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics — the Baz Luhrmann-directed take on the love story between Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan’s Daisy Buchanan far surpassed the expectations of both distributor Warner Bros. and box-office pundits. In fact, The Great Gatsby trailed only Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man 3, which collected $72.52 million at the domestic box office this past weekend. (Photo: Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby.) Partly thanks to 3D surcharges and a strong female contingent of ticket-buyers, »

Channing Tatum has been calling Sienna Miller for baby advice. The 32-year-old actor's wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum is currently pregnant with the couple's first child and he has turned to his 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' co-star Sienna for tips on what to expect. Sienna told heatworld: 'It's an on-going phone conversation, he's actually in London so I've been helping him out a lot. We've got the same obstetrician, same everything.' Channing and Jenna are living in London while he films 'Jupiter Ascending' and Sienna is in New York with her fiance Tom Sturridge and their daughter Marlowe but she is 'more than happy to be on-call' for the pair. Jenna, 32, recently revealed Channing has been looking after »
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis held hands and covered up in hooded sweatshirts during a rainy outing in Hampstead, North London, today. The couple grabbed lunch at an Italian restaurant before stopping for dessert at a crepe stand and devouring their sweets during the walk home. Ashton has joined Mila across the pond while she films Jupiter Ascending with Channing Tatum, who also has the company of his pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan, in the UK. Mila and Ashton have welcomed the London scene and cuisine rather quickly and had a double date with Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend, Dave Clark, on Saturday. The foursome reportedly indulged in deep-fried bananas and tequila shots at two different locations, including London hot spot Duck & Waffle. View Slideshow › »

The Great Gatsby didn’t take down Iron Man 3 at the box office, but its $51.1 opening weekend was significantly higher than analysts predicted. Audiences — heavily adult and female — were likely drawn to Baz Luhrmann’s surrealistic re-imagination of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel and the film’s hip anachronistic soundtrack, but it’s no secret what really sold this movie: “Three little letters,” said Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. head of domestic distribution. “L-e-o.”
Gatsby’s strong debut was a reminder that Leonardo DiCaprio is a Hollywood superhero — even if he’s never played one on the silver screen. »

The first set photos from The Wachowski Siblings' Jupiter Ascending have landed online. The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who has to scrub toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum co-stars as a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down. The costumes and makeup on some of the extras look like 17th century French royalty that had their clothes tailored in Southeast Asia. I like it. We can also see some extras who I assume will also be wearing masks/helmets over the non-blackened parts of their faces. In other Jupiter Ascending news, the production has been shooting at London's Natural History Museum, and a source tells The Sun, "A skate ramp has been built over the top of the huge dinosaur in the »
