Movie trailer: The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

The remake of the 1974 movie gets its first trailer.

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.

The film, directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge), stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher, and will hit theaters on Dec. 25th.

Soundtrack includes a cool cover of the U2 hit “Love is Blindness” by Jack White.

Django Unchained.

Here is the first teaser poster for Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie Django Unchained.

Here’s the movie’s synopsis:

Set in the Deep South during the 1850s, Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) is a German bounty hunter/former dentist who buys Django (Jamie Foxx) as a slave so that he can help Schultz identify bounties for him. After successfully helping the good doctor with his bounty hunting, Django is given his freedom papers and is recruited by Schultz to continue being his partner in the bounty hunting business.

Django hones his bounty hunting skills until Schultz thinks he is ready to go to Mississippi; in order to free his wife (Broomhilda). When they find her where abouts through slave auction records, they discover she is in the hands of monsieur Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio); a francophile who takes great pleasure in watching Mandingos fight to the death. Django and Schultz cleverly con Candie into selling Django back his Broomhilda. But something goes rotten in the state of Denmark and Django finds himself fighting for his life, his wife, and sweet bloody vengeance.

The movie also stars Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell, Anthony LaPaglia and Don Johnson.

Political musings

Taylor Garrett is a cast member of the gay reality TV show “A-List Dallas”

If you are gay, GLAAD and the left will defend you. Not if you are a Republican though. Read this story about how reality TV show star Taylor Garrett gets a beat down and vandalized because he’s a gay conservative associated with commentator Ann Coulter.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) identified several celebrities receiving farm subsidies whose professions had nothing to do with farming or agriculture. Did you know Jon Bon Jovi paid property taxes of only $100 last year on his extensive real estate holdings in New Jersey that he uses to raise bees? He’s not alone. Bruce Springsteen, Ted Turner, Quincy Jones and others are collecting too. Is it right? I don’t know, but it does make me cringe a bit. I won’t fault people (even celebrities) for taking advantage of loopholes that are in place. If we as a society think it’s wrong, then we need to change the laws I guess. See story.

Jay-Z
Rapper Jay-Z loves the Occupy Wall Street movement and is making some good money off a new line of Rocawear branded OWS T-shirts (see story). At this time, he has not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement. I think it’s great that he is demonstrating entreprenurial skills. Good for him.

leonardo-dicaprio-J-EdgarAnyone else tired of seeing Leo take on these “older” roles? He has such a baby face, I can’t usually take him seriously when he plays really mature roles. I don’t know if I’ll see the new Hoover movie because of this. Plus, I don’t think I can look past that terrible make-up job. I do like Eastwood though. Hmmm, what to do?

On the set of Titanic

Rumor is that this sequence was a giant pain in the ass to shoot. Apparently, James Cameron (seen swimming below) is something of a dictator until he gets all his shots right. The cast was more or less in the water for almost three days until they got everything they needed down on film. (via Unreality Magazine)

Before they were famous, they did ads

Here is a small collection of celebrities in commercials from before they were famous. It’s weird, but you really can see the acting potential in a couple of these.
