Everyone does really look amazing! The second picture in #43 looks like it came straight out of an old movie.

Leonardo DiCaprio's GREAT GATSBY film delayed to 2013

Baz Luhrmann's 3D adaptation of The Great Gatsby will not be released until next summer, Warner Bros has announced.
August 7, 2012

The film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, had been due for release on Christmas Day in the US and the day after in the UK.

However Warner Bros said it was pushing the film back to ensure it "reaches the largest audience possible".

The release date puts the film, based on F Scott Fitzgerald's novel, out of contention for next year's Oscars.

A Christmas release would have pitted the film against other highly anticipated movies including Les Miserables, Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher and the first instalment of The Hobbit trilogy.

It will now battle against summer blockbusters like Iron Man 3, Star Trek 2, Monsters University and new Superman film Man of Steel.

A summer release also makes Luhrmann's film a much less-favoured contender for the 2014 awards season. Film studios generally line up Oscar contenders for December and January, which is when Academy voters receive their ballot papers.

Warner Bros gave no explanation for the delay of The Great Gatsby, simply saying it wanted to make sure "this unique film reaches the largest audience possible".

However, two unnamed sources close to the production told the LA Times that the extra time would allow Luhrmann "more time to finish its extensive 3D effects and a planned all-star soundtrack".

"Based on what we've seen, Baz Luhrmann's incredible work is all we anticipated and so much more," Dan Fellman, Warner Bros's president of domestic distribution, said in a statement.

"It truly brings Fitzgerald's American classic to life in a completely immersive, visually stunning and exciting way.

"We think moviegoers of all ages are going to embrace it."

International distribution president Veronika Kwan Vandenberg added: "The responses we've had to some of the early sneak peeks have been phenomenal, and we think The Great Gatsby will be the perfect summer movie around the world."

Tobey Maguire and Isla Fisher also star in Luhrmann's adaptation of the F Scott Fitzgerald novel.

In a way it's probably better for them to wait until summer. 3D screens this December will be taken up with The Hobbit, and the classic adaptation field is pretty crowded as well with The Hobbit, Anna Karenina, and Les Miserables. By waiting until summer they might have the oppotunity to get it on more screens. Plus there aren't that many nonaction, nonsuperhero movies in the summer, so this will fill a need and be the go to movie for thinking movie goers. Plus, in Decemeber it would go against Django Unchained, another Leo movie. This way he doesn't have divided votes for awards season and he can give his full attention to the promotion of each film.

I don't think that this will hurt awards chances either. If anything it might help them. Look at Luhrmann's record. Moulin Rouge debuted in Cannes and opened in theatres in May. It was far more successful both commercially and in terms of awards than Australia which opened in November and got lost amid a million other holiday awards condenders.

More recently, The Help, did very well critically and commercially by opening in the summer. Ditto for Inception.

I'm so disappointed that it's been delayed. I was so looking forward for it and now I have to wait one year.

AWw I am sad about this, I wanted to see leo and carey doing promo together

But I really thought the film looked good from the trailer, and was interested to see how well the book was going to be adapted. It looked to be at the very least visually stunning. And it has steller actors in it. I guess I will make plans for next year!

I honestly think that the material either doesn't deliver (hence, it's going to be promoted as a summer blockbuster, rather than for Oscar material in February) or there will be more editing/reshooting (possibly) before the premiere. Either way, it's not promising at all.

^Well I think with Baz Lurhman it works either way. He either gets it right with his quarky and odd movies and they turn out wonderful (R&J and Moulin Rouge) or you get a movie from him that is boring, too weird, and just not an entertaining film (Australia, ect.)

So its like a hit or miss with his movies, he either gets it totally right, or its not good.

The Great Gatsby is opening Cannes! All the articles I've read about it today mention a legendary party that Fox held after Moulin Rouge opened the 2001 Cannes Film Festival. I had personally not heard of it but I read an article on Roger Ebert's site that describes it and it sounds as though it was incredible. It would be cool if Warner Brothers did something similar for TGG.

Quote:
Magic in `Moulin Rouge'
By Roger Ebert

CANNES, France -- "With money like this, think what could be done with the Chicago Film Festival!" declared a Cannes Film Festival visitor Wednesday night. I think the visitor was me. I was not referring to the cost of the Cannes festival, but to the cost of the party after the opening night premiere of "Moulin Rouge." There has never been a Cannes party like it_and take it from me, I've seen plenty, including the bash on Roman Polanski's pirate ship.

Nicole Kidman reigned like the queen of cinema over a celebration inside a series of vast circus tents that suggested the Moulin Rouge nightclub in Paris. With authentically worn floorboards, lush velvet walls, revolving stages and disco balls, this was an extravaganza to awe the most decadent festivalgoer. Chefs in toques labored over freshly made omelets and crepes, waiters circled with champagne, and when the can-can girls bounced onto the center stage, even Rupert Murdoch, Lord of All Media, stood on his chair for a better look.

Murdoch owns 20th Century Fox, which produced the movie and paid for this largess. To have your film open the Cannes festival is an honor so unimaginably grand that normally only French films are considered adequate. "Moulin Rouge" tells a story set entirely in Paris in 1900_but every foot of the film was shot in Murdoch's native Australia, and both Kidman, the star, and Baz Luhrmann, the director, are Aussies. This is like Canada winning the Olympics.

"We have been working on this party for months!" Christian Garcon Funnily Enough shouted in my ear. He advised me to grab a table in the center area, although there would be action everywhere else, too. "I am from Los Angeles," he said, "although I am a Frenchman, funnily enough. My company plans parties like this."

And what is your name? I shouted.

"Christian Garcon Funnily Enough," he shouted back, handing me a card that read "Christian Garcon." (Ask a friend who speaks French to explain this paragraph, which contains a joke, funnily enough.)

The movie struck just the right note to kick off this 54th festival. The post-screening buzz, confirmed by most of the reviews Thursday morning, was that "Moulin Rouge" hit a home run. The hyperkinetic musical tells the story of a doomed romance between a Parisian dance hall girl (Kidman) and a starving writer (Ewan McGregor), who must compete for her charms with a venal duke (Richard Roxburgh). John Leguizamo, using artificial braces to look shorter, plays the dwarfish artist Toulouse-Lautrec, and Jim Broadbent is Zigler, the impresario who knows the dancer's sad secret.

The movie is a tour of a century of style. It has the luridly melodramatic plot of a 19th century opera, the lush color and art direction of a 1950s Hollywood musical, and the frenetic energy of a brand-new music video. On Thursday morning, I motored out to the Hotel du Cap d'Antibes, the expensively inconvenient home of the biggest stars at the festival, to interview the principals. They were arrayed in a series of cabanas staggering down toward the sea, and as I marched from one to another I learned:

From Baz Luhrmann, the film's director: "We develop a new cinematic language every 10 years, and today, when every kid has a digital camera and is familiar with the conventions of naturalism, it is time to return to the grander styles of the cinema's past."

From Ewan McGregor, who plays the writer: "It was important that, in the middle of the whirlwind, his character and Kidman's remain focused on the truth of their relationship."

From John Leguizamo, who plays Toulouse-Lautrec: "I walked on artificial legs that were fitted to my knees, to make me 4 feet 11 inches tall, exactly his height. Because Toulouse was born to first cousins, there were a lot of things wrong with him. His tongue was very thick, and he had a high-pitched lisp. His legs were very short. He was, however, unusually well-endowed, which is why his nickname was the Tripod."

An interview with Nicole Kidman was scheduled for after lunch. At the hotel's Eden Roc Restaurant, where Miramax's Harvey Weinstein was table-hopping, there was much talk about whether "middle America" would go for the movie. Also some gloom.

"Do they know what a musical is?" asked one studio rep.

"Do they know where Paris is?" asked another.

"Do they know what Paris is?" asked a third.

My answer to all three questions: They will not have found out from the movies you have been making for them.

After lunch, a seance with the tall and regal Nicole Kidman. "What a party that was," she said. "We partied all night."

You look fresh and relaxed, I said.

"I am an actress."

Soon I was back at my beloved Hotel Splendid. For the price of lunch at the du Cap, one can stay for a week at the Splendid, breakfast included. The hotel, alas, is not in a serene location, but located directly across the street from the beach with the giant party tents. On the stairs I ran into Ken Turan, film critic of the Los Angeles Times.

"Grumble, grumble," he said.

Are you grumbling?

"Do you know how late that `Moulin Rouge' party lasted last night?" he asked. "I'll tell you. It lasted until 4 a.m."

You were there until the end?

"I never left my room."

It was loud, we agreed, but not as loud as three years ago, when an Austin Powers billboard was erected directly beneath our windows, and broadcast the cackles of a sneering villain 24 hours a day. It takes men of steel to cover the festival. You can't just sit around on your tripod.

I'm really excited for this. I know some people would rather have a "faithful" adaptation (not that this is unfaithful per se, in the trailers I've seen lots of book references/dialogue) but they've tried that with Gatsby. It was rather dull. Luhrmann isn't everyone's taste but thinks outside the box and doesn't do anything by half measures. I'm really interested to see what he does with Gatsby.
