Joel Edgerton on 'The Great Gatsby' moving to Summer 2013: 'It feels appropriate'

Fans of Baz Luhrmann’s dazzling visuals and Leonardo DiCaprio’s suave ways were certainly disappointed Monday when Warner Bros. announced that its adaptation of The Great Gatsby is being pushed from a Christmas release to summer 2013.

But when EW caught up with Joel Edgerton – who plays Tom Buchanan in the adaptation — at the premiere of his upcoming family film The Odd Life of Timothy Green Monday night, he was much more upbeat.  READ FULL STORY

'The Great Gatsby' moving to Summer 2013

Looks like the mercurial Jay Gatsby will remain mysteriously out of reach for a bit longer.

Warner Bros. announced today that The Great Gatsby, director Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D adaptation of the seminal novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, has been pushed to Summer 2013. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role, along with Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton, the film had been slated to open on Christmas day this year. No specific new date was indicated. READ FULL STORY

'The Great Gatsby': More new photos from Baz Luhrmann's take on the 1920s classic

More photos from Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D take on The Great Gatsby have hit the Web. The movie’s first trailer, released last month, reassured both Luhrmann fans and F. Scott Fitzgerald devotees that the vision of the two storytellers could be married into one film. Now fans of Lurhmann’s shiny, dazzling style can check out these images to get another look at the director’s interpretation of the high school English class staple, complete with a tuxedo’ed Leonardo diCaprio.

The photos, originally published on WWD.com, feature the cast in various states of merriment. See the more of the new photos (flapper dresses included!) below. READ FULL STORY

'The Great Gatsby' trailer: Baz Lurhmann's take on the classic novel looks as gonzo as you expected

One thing you can count on with Baz Luhrmann: The man sure knows how to spin cultural anachronisms to his favor. The trailer for his latest — an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal novel of roaring wealth and excess in 1922 New York City — opens with a cut from Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne, and follows up with an extended cut of Jack White covering U2′s “Love is Blindness.” And yet somehow, it works.

We also get a good sense of the gonzo parties thrown by the enigmatic Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), as well as a few shots of Gatsby making doe eyes at former flame Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), and Tobey Maguire as Midwestern outsider (and audience proxy) Nick Carraway taking it all in. Curiously, the trailer spends a considerable amount of time with a face less familiar to American audiences — Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan (as Meyer Wolfsheim) — and also introduces newcomer Elizabeth Debicki (as Jordan Baker).

Mostly, though, this first look at Luhrmann’s take on the high school lit class staple looks to be wildly different than the soporific 1974 adaptation starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, and that is nothing but a good thing. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
