    Joel Edgerton Joins Jeff Nichols' Sci-Fi & Ryan Reynolds Does The 'Mississippi Grind' Instead Of Jake Gyllenhaal

    There are few emerging American filmmakers right now as exciting as Jeff Nichols. The director is coming of a pretty fantastic run of three indie films -- the must-see-if-you-haven't "Shotgun Stories," the excellent "Take Shelter" and the deeply felt "Mud."

    Review: 'Wish You Were Here' Starring Joel Edgerton & Teresa Palmer

    Although its title implies either a whimsical journey of self-discovery or an ironic riposte to the vacation from hell, the story of “Wish You Were Here” is, in either context, a disappointingly pedestrian experience. The story of a husband and father trying to return to his normal life after a vaca...

    Joel Edgerton On Going From Small Scale 'Wish You Were Here' to 'Gatsby' and Why He's Happy With the Outcome of 'Jane Got a Gun' Despite On Set Drama

    Joel Edgerton, arguably one of the best things about Baz Luhrmann's critically maligned but financially successful "Great Gatsby" redo, stars in another summer film starting this Friday, albeit one of much smaller scale. Starring fellow Aussie star Teresa Palmer ("Warm Bodies"), Edgerton's second fi...

    Joel Edgerton In Demand: Actor Joins Johnny Depp In 'Black Mass' & Michelle Williams In 'The Double Hour'

    Has Aussie actor Joel Edgerton become Hollywood's new it-man? He turned heads with a jerk in 2010's crime thriller, "Animal Kingdom" (we immediately took notice) and gained further acclaim for his toe to toe role with Tom Hardy in the underloved MMA drama "Warrior." Directors of note also took notic...

    Cannes 2013: 7 Things We Learned About 'The Great Gatsby' From Baz Luhrmann, Leonardo DiCaprio & Co

    A perhaps unexpected offering to kick off this fortnight of high-profile international, arthouse and independent filmmaking, Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" will nonetheless burst open the Cannes Film Festival later tonight like a giant glitter-and-feather-filled pinata.

    Good and Bad Surprises in Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

    Novel? What novel? I went into Baz Luhrmann's 3-D, Jay Z-soundtracked The Great Gatsby assuming that the kindest, smartest approach would be to forget there was ever a book behind it. Surprisingly, the film is more attached to F. Scott Fitzgerald than I expected, and that turns out to be its do...
