With the release of the film rapidly approaching, this new US banner poster has landed online for the upcoming ‘The Great Gatsby’ adaptation, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio’s mysterious titular character and Carey Mulligan’s Daisy Buchanan. Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) directs the ‘The Great Gatsby’ from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel of the same name – unquestionably one of my favourite books of all time. Lead by DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Mulligan as Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson, newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, and Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim. ‘The Great Gatsby’ arrives in cinemas on May 10th in the US and Canada, with an international rollout on May 15th (May 16th in the UK). The above banner poster can be viewed in hi-res here. Source: IMP.
‘The Great Gatsby’ follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures aren’t messing about! Not long after debuting the new ‘Man Of Steel’ trailer, Zack Snyder has tweeted this first poster for the follow-up to ’300,’ ‘300: Rise of an Empire.’ Planned for a August 2nd release, ’300: Rise of an Empire’ stars Rodrigo Santoro returning as Xerxes, Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles, Jamie Blackley as Calisto, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, and Eva Green as Artemisia.
’300: Rise of an Empire’ is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel that takes Xerxes, the Persian leader who is an antagonist in ’300,’ and turns him into more of a pivotal figure. He’s a man in search of godhood after the death of his father, battling an Athenian warlord named Themistocles. The story takes place over the course of several years, but the focal point is the battle of Artemisium, which occured in 480 BC. Previous reports had Zack Snyder – who in my eyes done a fantastic job with ’300′ – pegged to direct until Warner Bros and producer Christopher Nolan signed him up to helm ‘Man of Steel.’ Noam Murro (five-time DGA nominated commercials director) is on board to direct the film. The official synopsis for ’300: Rise of an Empire’ can be read below.
Following General Zod’s “You Are Not Alone” message, Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this new 3-minute trailer for ‘Man of Steel’; providing us with some great new looks at the much anticipated summer blockbuster. Alongside Henry Cavill in the dual role of Superman/Clark Kent, the key cast for ‘Man of Steel’ includes Oscar nominee Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Oscar nominee Michael Shannon as General Zod, Academy Award winner Kevin Costner as Superman/Clarke’s adoptive father Jonathan Kent, Oscar nominee Diane Lane as Superman/Clarke’s adoptive mother Martha Kent, Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Antje Traue as Faora, Ayelet Zurer as Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara Lor-Van, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Michael Kelly, Richard Shiff, and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe as Jor-El; Superman’s Kryptonian father.
Arriving in cinemas on June 14th, ‘Man of Steel’ is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics. The official synopsis and production notes for ‘Man of Steel’ can be read below the new trailer.
Hot on the heels our first looks at Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro on the set of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,′ Zimbio has uncovered another batch of images from the film’s set highlighting the actor in character. Check out the pics – which feature a slight costume enhancement – after the jump. Alongside Foxx, the superhero sequel stars Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Shailene Woodley (Mary Jane Watson), Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborne), Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti (Aleksei Sytsevich/The Rhino), Chris Cooper (Norman Osborne), Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak and Sally Field (May Parker). The latest chapter in the ‘Spider-Man’ story is set for release on May 2nd, 2014.
In ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ for Peter Parker life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen, high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Picturehouse Cinemas has unveiled this UK trailer for Shane Meadows’ (This Is England, Dead Man’s Shoes) upcoming The Stone Roses documentary, ‘The Stone Roses: Made of Stone.’ Incorporating previously unseen material spanning The Stone Roses’ history, the personal experiences of many who were touched by the band and their music, and unparalleled access to the record-breaking sellout concerts which took place in summer 2012, ‘The Stone Roses: Made of Stone’ is described as the definitive record of the definitive band of the past 25 years.
“This film isn’t a history lesson”, explains Shane Meadows, “nor is it a two hour concert film. It is a film about defying the odds, sticking it to the man and telling the cynics to shut their pie-holes!” ‘The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone’ gets a UK Premiere in Manchester, complete with an appearances from The Stone Roses themselves, on May 30th, before rolling out nationwide on June 5th. I’m looking forward to this!
