The Great Gatsby

A week’s worth of new posters have paved the way for The Great Gatsby‘s latest trailer, which shows off quite a bit of new footage. In contrast to the earlier trailers, which played up the heady party atmosphere of the 1920s, this one emphasizes the fiery passions that drive the Baz Luhrmann-directed tale. Specifically, it delves into the mysterious Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), the tragic embodiment of the American Dream.

To complement the shift in focus, the trailer also samples some different tunes from the soundtrack, including a haunting cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” by Beyoncé and André 3000. Check it out after the jump.

The Great Gatsby

Originally slated for Christmas 2012, Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby is now preparing to make a splash as a summer release this May. It’s been fairly quiet on the marketing front for the past few months, but that’s changing with the new release date just around the corner.

A new series of character posters featuring Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), Daisy (Carey Mulligan), Nick (Tobey Maguire), Tom (Joel Edgerton), Myrtle (Isla Fisher), and Jordan (newcomer Elizabeth Debicki) has just hit the web, giving us a glimpse at the troubled characters who populate this glitzy landscape. In addition, two TV spots show off Lurhmann’s ostentatious style. Check ‘em all out after the jump.

Leonardo DiCaprio hasn’t even hit his forties yet, but he’s already been working steadily for over two decades. The past year’s seen him busier than ever, shooting roles in Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby, and The Wolf of Wall Street. You can hardly blame the guy, then, for craving a bit of a break.

In a recent interview, the actor alluded to his desire to put his acting career on the back burner for the time being. But a “break,” in this case, doesn’t necessarily mean sipping daiquiris by the pool (though we’d understand if he wanted to slot some time for that as well). Instead, he’s hoping to shift his focus to environmental work for the time being. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Angie’s 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2013

The thing about these most-anticipated lists is that they can’t help but be woefully underinformed. While a few of the earlier 2013 releases have already revealed trailers or received film festival attention, others haven’t unveiled so much as an official still. So I’m going mostly by instinct, and as a result I will doubtlessly cringe at some of my misguided predictions when I look back on this list a year from now.

But that’s all part of the fun, of course. What’s exciting about a new year of movies isn’t any one specific title, but the hundreds of new opportunities it offers to be moved, thrilled, delighted, or surprised. That said, there are a few movies I’m especially eager to get to, and you can read my picks for 2013 after the jump.

Baz Luhrmann‘s adaptation of The Great Gatsby was once set to be released right about now, but the film was pushed off the December 2012 calendar and into a new date in May 2013. By the time the film hits, the first trailer for the film will be a year old.

But now we’ve got a new look at the movie, thanks to a trailer that arrived today. This gives us a much better look at the film, with Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) telling us his history, and further voiceover from Gatsby’s new friend Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) helping to ease us into the story as the circle of characters around the wealthy Gatsby are introduced. All along the way, Luhrmann’s vision of the Roaring Twenties is gloriously huge and dazzling; whether that will work for the story remains to be seen. Read More »

Only time will tell how Baz Luhrmann‘s ostentatious modern sensibilities will mesh with F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s Jazz Age classic The Great Gatsby, but if nothing else, the film seems to have the characters down pat.

Yesterday, we got posters for two key figures from The Great Gatsby: Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) and Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher). Today, Warner Bros. has revealed two more, of narrator Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) and Jordan Baker (Elizabeth Debicki). Check them out after the jump.
