    Prep For Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' With A Handy & Stylish Character Map, Plus First TV Spots For The Film

    If your audience needs to read up beforehand, your movie may be a little over-ambitious. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” however, which stands at sub-200 pages and with a tally of no more than seven principal characters, doesn’t present itself as an obvious adaptive head-scratcher. So a n...

    Jay-Z Didn't Score 'The Great Gatsby'; But Will Contribute To & Executive Produce The Soundtrack

    When rapper/entrepreneur Jay-Z was reported to be "scoring" Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" the first thing we were asked was, why didn't we report this? Well, for one, we're sticklers for language. You wouldn't say Diablo Cody wrote "Evil Dead" if she just did a dialogue pass on it, right? Well, ...

    Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' To Open 2013 Cannes Film Festival

    Watch: Leonardo DiCaprio Stars In Ambitious & Grand New Trailer For 'The Great Gatsby'

    Bumped off its Oscar-worthy December 2012 release date earlier this year, while things appeared rocky for Baz Luhrmann's almost ludicrously ambitious 3D adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" a few months ago ("3D? For drama??" the conventional thought went), with award s...

    Exclusive: Prince & Lady Gaga May Contribute New Songs To Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

    Eyebrows were raised when "The Great Gatsby" was removed from its late-December release, rescheduled for next spring. The Baz Luhrmann picture was just one of many Warner Bros. films possibly angling for Oscar nominations, but with a crowded slate, and the difficulty in securing a large percentage o...

    Baz Luhrmann Heads To TV In 2-Year Deal With Sony Pictures Television

    It was set to be a Leonardo DiCaprio showdown come Christmas Day 2012, only a few short months ago. That was before Warner Bros. pushed the DiCaprio-starring adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” back to May 10, 2013.

    As already glimpsed in his Kanye-trotting premiere trailer for “The Great Gatsby,” Baz Luhrmann has confirmed his over-exuberant style will remain consistent for his fifth film. Unfortunately, as the Australian filmmaker's filmography has repeatedly shown, a pretty studio penny is al...

    Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' Moved From Christmas Day To Summer 2013

    Take this one right out of the Oscar race folks. While showing off a razzle dazzle trailer earlier this year that matched up Jay-Z beats with Jazz Age glamour, Warner Bros. have decided to shift Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" from a Christmas Day relaese to an unspecified date next ...

    Watch: Heavily Stylized First Trailer For Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' With Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan

    When it was announced that Baz Luhrmann would be directing a film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," anyone who knew the Australian director's work sort of knew what to expect. They might not have guessed that he'd make the whole thing in 3D (which he has), but they knew you'd get ...
