Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this latest TV spot for the soon-to-be-released ‘The Great Gatsby’ adaptation. 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 Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Carey 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 Great Gatsby’ follows F. Scott Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, in the midst of the roaring twenties, 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, he tells a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

In a long line of news, behind-the-scenes images and teasers, director Bryan Singer has tweeted the above image of Hugh Jackman on the set of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Singer captioned this image with: “Fitting @RealHughJackman.” As you can see, Jackman is sporting a brown leather jacket, which I’d assume is aiming to represent the one the Wolverine wears on the iconic cover of X-Men #141. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series, commenced filming earlier this month in Montreal, Canada. It will be the first film in the ‘X-Men’ film series to be filmed in 3D.
