Jay Gatsby, hero of F. Scott Fiztgerald's classic novel "The Great Gatsby," had his chance to live the American dream, and now it's your turn to live yours, courtesy of NextMovie's "The Great Gatsby" Prize Pack Giveaway.
To celebrate the release of celebrated director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the quintessential American story — some special screenings beginning on Thursday, May 9 and opening everywhere Friday, May 10 — we're giving away one of our coolest swag packs ever. Get More »
Cats: They're such divas. Adorable, adorable little divas. They rule our world, so why not the cinematic one?
We obliged our feline friends by reimagining eight movies — with the aid and inspiration of our Twitter followers — starring cats instead of humans. Really, we can only dream of such cinematic purrfection.
The first one out the gate? Why, "The Great Catsby," of course. F. Scott Fitzgerald concluded that the pursuit of the American dream could only lead to a dirty litter box at best, after all.
Leonardo DiCaprio's career has been pretty on point — you don't get to be Martin Scorsese's little muse by phoning in the rom-coms, ya dig? — but so far, he's been three for three no whammy when it comes to the Academy.
"The Great Gatsby" director Baz Lurhmann has spoken on the lack of gold statuettes upon his dear Romeo's nightstand and clearly agrees it's a grave Hollywood injustice which probably needs to be cured soon ... hint, hint. Get More »
One of the most ubiquitous aspects of every 30 second trailer for "The Great Gatsby" is the brief clip of Leonardo DiCaprio (as Gatsby himself) savagely screaming in the face of Nick Carraway (fellow "Pussy Posse" member Tobey Maguire). We as viewers of the preview don't know what he's yelling about, but that's ok, because we all understand that this is what Mr. DiCaprio does in all of his movies. The words "inside voice" mean nothing to the guy. Get More »
Everyone seems just as pumped for the Jay-Z-produced soundtrack for "The Great Gatsby" as they are for the flick itself.
But before we look ahead at what The Hova has in store for what we can only imagine will be the coolest-ever soundtrack to something you were forced to read in high school, let's look back at some of the all-time great movie songs.
[From MTV News] NEW YORK: The Jazz Age took center stage Wednesday (May 1), as the stars of Baz Luhrmann's glitzy "The Great Gatsby" — including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan — walked the black carpet outside of Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall for the world premiere of their '20s-set film (which opens in theaters May 10).
Often considered one of (if not the) great American novel, the F. Scott Fitzgerald tale — about an enigmatic millionaire trying to win back his long-lost love — is a mainstay of high-school and college curricula, yet the manner in which the stars were introduced to the book are as many and varied as Gatsby's extensive shirt collection.

Your mother always told you that math would be important. As it turns out — and we're not just saying this because it's Mother's Day and flowers are really expensive and we need to start sucking up now — she's right.
We just bet you didn't know that you'd need that math to decide what to see this coming month. From the party that won't stop in "The Great Gatsby" to superheroes galore in "Iron Man 3," here's your arithmetic-driven guide to May 2013, the official beginning of summer movie season. Get More »
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »
The director has finally spoken up about what prompted the decision to pull the film from its original winter holiday run and slate it in with the superhero-heavy summer schedule, and he made no mention of the rumored financing feud between himself and the Warner Bros. studio.
As in "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet," Aussie director Baz Luhrmann is looking to circumvent Generation Y's deep loathing for anything from before this past decade by saturating his lavish film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age romance "The Great Gatsby" with pop tunes aplenty.
True to his past behavior, Reuters reports that Luhrmann has lured 17-time Grammy champ Jay-Z in the curatorial executive producer capacity on "Gatsby," meaning he's procuring, producing and arranging all the artists' tracks for the soundtrack, rumored to include the likes of Lady Gaga and Prince.
