Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.
Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."
Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »
If there's anybody in the world who understands the need to be big pimpin' and spendin' cheese, it's Jay-Z, and it sounds like all that baller status empathy is coming to good, good use for director Baz Luhrmann and his upcoming adaptation of "The Great Gatsby."
In this latest (final?) trailer for the lavish picture, the group offers up a delicious little sampling of the smörgåsbord of talent Jay's got on deck for "Gatsby" - leading off, of course, with his one and only
Daisy Beyonce and her co-cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" with Andre 3000. Listen closely and you'll also hear a little Jack White, Lana Del Rey and the incomparable Florence + the Machine seamlessly dropping in here and there. Gorgeous. Get More »
Turn down the record player, some of us are trying to look pensive and glamorous while posing for close-up portraits!
Such demands can mean only one thing: The character posters for Baz Luhrmann's much-anticipated adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" have arrived, six in all. Now we can see, frozen, what may have been marred by anachronistic rap beats and Luhrmann's patented squirrel-on-crack editing style in the previously released trailers for the film. Could Jay-Z's beats' presence have clouded exactly how blue Leo's eyes are? Maybe.
"Gatsby" is due in theaters in 3D and 2D on May 10, so until then, you can just find us staring unblinkingly at these posters, Dr. T.J. Eckleburg style. Get More »
So far this month we've already observed major national holidays like New Year's Day and Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday. But today, America is being treated to a surprise new holiday: New Coen Brothers Surprise Trailer Release Day.
Baz Luhrmann has done it again.
You may recall that earlier this year, Luhrmann released the first teaser for his upcoming adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel 'The Great Gatsby." And that trailer was so cool, we had to put it number one on our list of the best trailers of 2012.
Just one problem with our list: We didn't expect that he would release a second new trailer today that's just as awesome.
Hey, what would "The Great Gatsby" be without an embarrassment of riches? Get More »
The "Shame" gal goes bad, a Reservoir Dog becomes royalty and "August: Osage County" gets even bigger as we look at the past week's casting activity.
Carey Mulligan will soon be channeling Nicole Kidman in "To Die For" as she signs on to play a femme fatale in the dark crime comedy, "Nancy and Danny," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The "Drive" beauty will star as a money-hungry woman who, after her big-city dreams go up in smoke, engages in a get-rich-quick scheme in order to land an old high school crush. Things probably go quite awry. Get More »
Just about every high schooler is practically forced at gunpoint to read F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel "The Great Gatsby," perhaps because no other work both celebrates and condemns the promise of the American Dream with such insight. Now "Moulin Rouge!" director Baz Luhrmann is going to sprinkle his particular brand of pizzazz all over it.
Reuniting with "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet" poster boy Leonardo DiCaprio, Luhrmann is staying true to the story of self-made man Gatsby and his doomed love affair with Daisy Buchanan, while adding contemporary style and music for what's sure to be an intoxicating cocktail of the Prohibition era. Consider this your invite to Gatsby's West Egg soiree. Get More »
We're happy to report that Baz Luhrmann is still the guy with the lampshade on his head after everyone else has gone home.
No one can throw a cinematic soiree quite like the director of "Moulin Rouge," and it looks like Grandmaster Baz has outdone himself with his latest extravaganza, "The Great Gatsby." Luhrmann gives us a New York City in 1922, when "the buildings were higher, the parties were bigger, the morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper," according to Tobey Maguire's Nick Carraway.

Rooney Mara is going to where the wild things are.
The "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" herself has added Spike Jonze to the already impressive list of directors she's worked with as she's signed on to join the latest film from the man behind "Being John Malkovich," according to Variety. Get More »
Talk about your Hollywood ending: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar nominated actress Carey Mulligan and Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford were married over the weekend, putting the capper on one of the most unlikely real world romances in recent memory.
Hey, if they ever make a movie out of it, at least we know who the star will be. Get More »
