Poor Natalie Portman. Doesn't anyone want to cowboy it up with her in "Jane Got a Gun"? Producers are hoping Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire or Jeff Bridges might, now that both Jude Law and Michael Fassbender have walked out on her.
Even the picture's director, Lynne Ramsay, has ditched. Okay, for serious, it probably has zilch-nil-squat to do with the fact that Natalie Portman stars, but something's gone seriously awry to make yet another vital piece of the production take off. Get More »
Who knew Spidey could be such a convincing existentialist?
Rescued from the dusty shelves at the Weinstein Company's island of misfit movies, Jacob Aaron Estes' 2011 Sundance Film Festival debut "The Details" has finally gotten a proper (albeit "unofficial") trailer, and all we can say is "metaphors much?"
In the dark comedy, Tobey Maguire stars opposite "The Hunger Games" star Elizabeth Banks as a one-half of a disillusioned married couple which suffers from pests which are not just tearing up their yard but also nimbly bringing to light the desolation of their marriage. Get More »
Tobey Maguire is preparing for the apocalypse.
With "The Amazing Spider-Man" setting new records and tearing up the box office, you might be wondering what the stars of the last "Spider-Man" trilogy are doing these days. Does Tobey Maguire regret hanging up his tights? Are he and Kirsten Dunst sitting in a darkened room, watching their old movies on DVD and eating buckets of ice cream to console themselves over missed opportunities?
Does one of them have a voodoo doll of Andrew Garfield's hair?
Well, actually, not so much, as the couple that shared that famous upside-down onscreen kiss in "Spider-Man" now share another milestone: They both got cast in brand new films today.
Looks like the post-"Spider-Man" life is treating Maguire and Dunst just fine, thanks very much. Get More »

Tell me if this happens to you:
You're at an amusement park. You're eating cotton candy (candy floss, if you are living in Victorian England). You and your buddies get on line for the insane, backward, upside-down, stand-up roller coaster you aren't allowed to ride if you wear a pacemaker because just by looking at it you will probably have a heart attack.
You're chatting with your pals, then suddenly you are next in line and it is time to get in the car and OH MY GOD WHY THE HELL AM I ABOUT TO DO THIS?!?!?
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.

Australian director Baz Luhrmann's highly anticipated adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" has temporarily halted production after Luhrmann was injured on the set during filming.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the injury -- which Luhrmann is thankfully expected to fully recover from -- took place when the director of "Moulin Rouge" and "Romeo + Juliet" was beaned with the business end of a crane. After consulting physicians, the decision was made to send everyone home for Christmas and pick up production after both the holidays and Luhrmann's headache had passed. Get More »
The first official images from the set of Baz Luhrmann's highly anticipated adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel "The Great Gatsby" hit the internet today and frankly, they look, well... great.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular protagonist, "The Great Gatsby" also features Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and current It-Guy Joel Edgerton ("Warrior"), all dolled up and decked out in their finest mid-'20s flapper decadence. And now that we've seen the results, take it from us: Leo hasn't looked this good in years. Get More »
