    We're still seven months away from the year's end, but with the unveiling of trailers for "Skyfall" and "The Master" yesterday, 2013 seems that little bit closer now, doesn't it? Unless the Mayans were right all along, Christmas this year will bring two major film rel...

    First Look: Michael Fassbender And Carey Mulligan In Steve McQueen's 'Shame'

    It's been a flurry of a morning with the awesome Toronto Film Festival line-up being announced. On top of that comes a ton of first looks at films that have been highly anticipated on our part. First up we have quite a few photos of Steve McQueen's "Shame," starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. McQueen last directed Fassbender in "Hunger," a movie about the 1981 hunger strike in Ireland. "Hunger" was Fassbender's first shove into the spotlight, and he's now one of the year's "it" guys, knocking it out of the park in "X-Men: First Class" earlier this summer and getting ready for an awards push as Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Da...

    Baz Luhrmann Casts Joel Edgerton As Tom Buchanan In 'The Great Gatsby'

    The anointment of Joel Edgerton as a freshly minted A-lister looks to be complete. The Australian actor seemed to be on the brink of something for a decade, but 2011 may be the year in which the stars align: his small, but pivotal role in "Animal Kingdom" last year kicked off a string of new gigs, including the male lead in the prequel/reboot/preboot of "The Thing," opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the co-lead opposite Jennifer Garner in "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," and starring across from Tom Hardy in MMA drama "Warrior," a film that's picked up major buzz from early screenings, with some even whispering that it could be an awards cont...

    Joel Edgerton, Luke Evans Competing For Role Of Tom Buchanan In Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

    The list of go-to names for big roles, particularly for male leads, is an ever-changing one. We ran down a list last year, but even in the few months since then, new names have come to the forefront, and some have jumped to the front of the queue. "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth, for instance, who just locked down the title role opposite Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman," is a newbie, while his co-star in the forthcoming film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" romantic lead Sam Clafin, not only bagged the prince part in the fairy tale, but also the lead in would-be-'Harry Potter'-replacement franchise "The Seventh Son,"...

    Bradley Cooper Pitches Himself To Play Tom Buchanan In Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

    With Baz Luhrmann being irritatingly cutesy and coy regarding his presumably forthcoming adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" -- all he'll really admit these days is that it's something he's researching -- what we know for certain isn't much, except that Carey Mulligan has been selected to play Daisy in...

    Baz Luhrmann Says He's Not Making 'The Great Gatsby' "Right Now," Is Still Doing Extensive Research

    OK, this caginess was cute, but now it's getting sort of irritating. In development for a long time now, everything seemed hunky dory when it was revealed last month that Baz Luhrmann was going to make "The Great Gatsby," and filming was going to start in August in Australia. Well, you can put a big...
