Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire & Arcade Fire 'Between Two Ferns' With Zach Galifianakis
Perhaps this makes up for the thorough awfulness of "The Hangover Part III," or consider it an early Christmas present, at any rate, Zach Galifianakis is back with another edition of "Between Two Ferns," and as always it's loaded with insults, one liners and this time around, a band.

The Great Gatsby
It might seem like it was ages ago, but it's only been a few months since Baz Luhrmann's 3D, glitter encrusted "The Great Gatsby" did the Charleston in theaters across the country. And while reviews may have been mixed and the final result certainly spotty (we discussed The 5 Most Ridiculous Things About 'The Great Gatsby'), audiences seemed to love it, with the final tally north of $340 million worldwide. Not bad at all. And if you needed a little more Fitzgerald in your life, some good news is on the horizon.

A perhaps unexpected offering to kick off this fortnight of high-profile international, arthouse and independent filmmaking, Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" will nonetheless burst open the Cannes Film Festival later tonight like a giant glitter-and-feather-filled pinata. Which means that this morning was all about the real reason the film snagged its prestigious opening slot: the dazzling constellation of stars it brings in its wake to walk the red carpet, get their pictures taken and talk up the film in handy soundbite format to the assembled roiling masses of journalists at the press conference.

The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio
Opening a bit bigger than expected this past weekend and getting ready to explode confetti over crowds at Cannes later this week, Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, is totally ridiculous. It’s a rococo doodle, one full of flash and dazzle and sparkle, but empty inside, which would be an apt metaphor for the titular character if Luhrmann would slow down long enough to establish such things (even if he did bother to try to the make the connection, it would probably be besieged by schizophrenic cutting and accompanied by a Jay-Z song). In fact, it was something of a chore to narrow down the list of the most ridiculous things about “The Great Gatsby” to just five. We could go on and on all day. Oh, and spoiler warning old sport.

Review: 'The Great Gatsby' Is A Decadently Empty Tale Of Empty Decadence & Impossible Love

The Great Gatsby
The distinctive, vista-obsessed movies of Baz Luhrmann are nothing if not stylish, generally flamboyant and lavish in their candy-colored visual treatments. Subtlety has never been of much interest to the Australian filmmaker who has leaned heavily on melodrama and romantic fairy tales told in a passionate, bright Technicolor style. But sincerity and resplendent ardor have generally anchored his always-plush films, even when they’ve been too long and affected (“Australia”) or overpowered with the odor of teen angst (“Romeo + Juliet”). Luhrmann, it seems, was born to tell stories of impossible love in the most sumptuous ways possible.

Bradley Cooper
The saga continues... For a moment, it looked like everything was going to be okay on the troubled western "Jane Got A Gun." After Michael Fassbender's departure followed not longer after by director Lynne Ramsay's dramatic bailing on the movie literally days before cameras were going to roll (depending on who you ask she blindsided producers, or simply couldn't come to terms with them) the movie recovered with "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor taking over the director's chair. The cast was shaken up a bit with the long attached Natalie Portman (who is also a producer on the movie) being joined by Joel Edgerton (who changed roles during the casting shuffle), Bradley Cooper (replacing Jude Law who also eventually exited) and Noah Emmerich. Now the movie has lost another major actor.

When "Casa De Mi Padre" dropped last spring, it more or less died on the vine, and was forgotten about. And that's a shame, because in my opinion, it was outrageously hilarious and go for broke, in the way that only a spoof of Mexican telenovelas could be. It was absurd, surreal and bonkers in the way that Will Ferrell does best (joined by game co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna), but perhaps the niche of its comedic target put people off. Well, whatever the reason, Ferrell is giving the parody soap opera concept another spin, with time with a more American flavored riff.

The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan

Seven clips from the film have landed online, and while recent weeks have focused on the party atmosphere around the film via the soundtrack, these glimpses put the focus squarely on the characters.

With music proving to be a key element in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming take on the classic American novel "The Great Gatsby," given how hard the push has been for the soundtrack, it's beginning to eclipse the fact that there are some very real movie stars in this thing. But today we have a bit of both as the nearly daily updates on 'Gatsby' continue.
