The 'Gatsby' Takeover Continues
As the premiere date for The Great Gatsby approaches, I’m getting more psyched for Baz Luhrmann‘s latest to hit the big screen. We’ve gotten a lot of different looks at the film, and today we have a collection of clips pulled together for one video. In about 5 minutes of new footage, we get to see more of Tobey Maguire‘s character (narrator Nick Carraway) and there are also a few key moments from the plot at which we get a glimpse. It all looks very beautiful, very theatrical, and just plain good. Peep the video for more!

Earlier this week we heard the first snippet of one of the more highly-anticipated songs from The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Beyoncé and André 3000 covered Amy Winehouse‘s hit Back To Black, and not everyone was psyched about it. But I liked the snippet we heard on Monday, and today we have the full version! DJ/producer Mark Ronson (who also co-wrote the original song_ premiered the track on his East Village Radio mixshow. Click inside for your first full listen!
Coming to MTV
MTV has announced that it is planning to adapt the very successful Scream horror movie franchise for television. During the network’s upfronts presentation to advertisers this week, MTV revealed that they are working with director Wes Craven to condense the Scream film series into a properly packaged basic cable TV series. HMMMM. As a huge fan of the Scream films, I can’t say that my immediate reaction to this news is a positive one but … I guess we should wait and see how it turns out? Click below for more deets.

Gus Van Sant REALLY Wants To Direct This Movie!
Okay, see? This is what I’m talking about. For all of the people who are like, ‘The Fifty Shades Of Grey movie will surely be as bad as the Fifty Shades Of Grey book,’ I respectfully disagree! While the writing of the book was… um. Yeah. The plot was– if nothing else, and in my opinion,– very entertaining. For some time now I’ve been saying that the movie could be really good with a strong cast and crew. I was especially hoping a talented director would make the film, because that could make all the difference. We’ve heard hella casting rumors about the film (from the likes of Krysten Ritter and Stephen Amell… and then there was that hilarious Ryan Gosling thing), but this is the first time we’re getting word about a possible director. Gus Van Sant, Oscar-nominated director of such films as Good Will Hunting, Milk, Promised Land, and Finding Forrester reportedly shot a test scene for Fifty Shades Of Grey (with Magic Mike actor Alex Pettyfer) in hopes of convincing the studio to take him on. Now the word is that Alex Pettyfer is not being considered for the actual role, and was just used in Van Sant‘s scene. Either way, I’m psyched. Click inside for more!
SUCH A Good Trailer
We’ve gotten a few peeks at Sophia Coppola‘s new film The Bling Ring, and it’s all looking like loads of fun. We saw Emma Watson pole dancing and playing the bad girl quite well, and this new trailer’s no different. However, this time around we have more dialogue and the awesomeness that is Azealia Banks‘s 212 playing in the trailer. Even though the story is centered around rich kids in LA (who steal from rich celebrities in LA), 212 is the perfect backdrop for all of this silly bad-assery, lol. Peep the trailer for more!
Her Feature Film Debut
Just a few days ago we learned that model Kate Upton had been cast in a new movie with Cameron Diaz and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. I was excited to hear that Kate was getting into movies, and now it seems like another newcomer to film is joining in on the fun. Nicki Minaj has just been cast in The Other Woman, the new movie from The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes. This will be Nicki‘s first role in a movie, although we know she’s no stranger to the dramatic arts, lol. Click inside to learn more!
Oh Nomi, They Didn't!!!!!!!!!!
Remember back in 2010 when we heard about plans for a sequel film to the amazingly terrible cult 1995 film Showgirls? Yeah, well, nothing really came of those plans but today I am very excited to reveal that the original film has been adapted into an off-Broadway musical! Showgirls! The Musical! opened just last week and as you can see below, it does its best to bring the Showgirls story to the theatrical stage. The trailer looks CHEESY as HELL but I am kinda in love with it entirely. Click below to learn more about this show, check out the trailer and marvel … Nomi Malone lives again, y’all!! More »
Plus, See Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon
Last week we got our first look at Jamie Foxx in character as the villainous Electro on the NYC set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Today we get to see actor Dane DeHaan on set in character as Harry Osborn. Additionally, a new photo of Foxx as Electro‘s alter ego Maxwell Dillon has also been released. Click below to see these guys in character as the baddies they play in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. More »
Earlier today we got a tiny peek at actor Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the new teaser trailer for the upcoming superhero sequel film Thor: The Dark World. Right now we learn that Hiddleston is reportedly in talks to play the role of Eric Draven in the planned reboot film The Crow. As you may recall, we learned WAY BACK in 2009 that plans were in the works to remake the 1994 film The Crow, which starred Brandon Lee in his final role before his untimely death, with a new actor. In 2010, it was rumored that Marky Mark Whalberg was up for the lead role … then in 2011 it was reported that Bradley Cooper was up for the role (thankfully, that didn’t work out). At the start of last year, it was reported that the Crow remake project got itself a new director and screenwriter … and today, we hear Hiddleston may get the role. HMMM. More »
"I will be horribly in love with her!"
Last month we got our first look at the first domestic trailer for Joss Whedon‘s adaptation of the Shakespeare masterpiece Much Ado About Nothing. Today we get to check out the just-released UK trailer for the film. As you may recall (because I keep REMINDING Y’ALL), I appear as an extra in the film. You can see me really quickly in this new trailer but it’s really in a blink and you miss it scene (at the 1:03 mark) but I’m REALLY excited that you can see and hear my BFF Emma Bates more clearly in this new trailer at the :30 mark (she plays the maid with with kick ass curls)!!! Check out the trailer above and FALL in love! This version of Much Ado looks really damn good in just the previews. I cannot WAIT to see the film in full!
