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.

Well, you gotta admit, Baz Luhrmann has a pretty big pair of brass ones when it comes to "The Great Gatsby." With a soundtrack dressing up the classic American novel with songs by will.i.am, Fergie, Lana Del Rey, Jay-Z and The xx, he's certainly taking F. Scott Fitzgerald's book out of the classroom and into...somewhere else. And with 3D visuals, lavish set design and, oh yeah, an all star cast, it's go big or go home. And now a few more treats are here to bring you into Luhrmann's world.

There is probably no bigger (or riskier) question mark this spring than Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," which has battled a delay and rumors of a troubled production only to nab the opening slot at the Cannes Film Festival (and in the process breaking an unspoken tradition of the Croisette hosting world premieres only -- it will open in the U.S. a week earlier). But there are reasons to be excited. Namely, Luhrmann has faced this kind of scrutiny before and won people over, and also, the always charming Jason Clarke excitedly told us last year that the 3D will "....be amazing and there's never been anything like it."

We were beginning to wonder, as 24 hours had nearly passed, but yet another update has arrived in the ongoing saga of the western "Jane Got A Gun." The film, which this week saw director Lynne Ramsay and star Jude Law quit the project, while "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor has been hired to try to get this thing moving, is still without a villain. The project, now looking to fall a week behind schedule, is in search for a replacement, and a few names have cropped up as possible substitutes.

With "The Great Gatsby" now about five months away from hitting theaters, in marketing terms, it's not a long time, and it looks like Warner Bros. is getting the campaign started on the literary adaptation they hope will be a big hit. Earlier today we got character posters for Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) and Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher), and now a couple more people from F. Scott Fitzgerald's book are getting the one-sheet treatment.

Review: ‘The Details’ Is An Inconsistent But Entertaining Dark Comedy

“The Details” is one of those dark comedies where everything that can go wrong does. The sophomore film from Jacob Aaron Estes, whose previous film “Mean Creek” won the John Cassavetes Award at Sundance in 2004, was the biggest sale of the 2011, purchased by The Weinstein Company for $8 million. Of the dozen movies this writer saw while he was at the fest, it was one of the more accessible, but didn’t exactly ring of “Little Miss Sunshine”-like success either. The film stars Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks as Jeff and Nealy Lang, young parents who have hit a rough patch in their marriage. Jeff is a doctor, Nealy is an interior decorator and while it’s probably neither’s fault, the passion has clearly gone out of their relationship, the image of the happy suburban couple is immediately shattered by a screaming match between the couple during the opening credits.

Through the beginnings of Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio’s careers existed a parallel role choice before diverging in approach, and so it's with perhaps a tinge of familiarity, post-“Revolutionary Road,” that Maguire stepped in for his own take on a crumbling marriage with 2011 Sundance hit “The Details.” However, despite finding distribution coin (to the tune of $8 mil) from The Weinstein Company, the Jacob Aaron Estes (“Mean Creek”) black comedy is just now finding theatrical release next month, but rather than bury the film, they’ve instead ramped up promotion with a slew of new material to witness.

Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire Are Actually Developing Two Anti-Poaching Movies

Hollywood studios have a history of mounting competing projects that cover similar terrain -- think “Deep Impact” and “Armageddon,” or the biopics “Capote” and “Infamous” -- but it’s rare that a studio would be developing two similar projects in-house, and that’s exactly what Warner Bros. is doing. A couple of months ago we heard word that Tom Hardy, Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio would be collaborating on a “‘Traffic’-like take on poaching and illegal animal smuggling” based on an idea Hardy came up with, but now the trio is also collaborating on a second animal smuggling and poaching film.

After an unofficial trailer dropped last week and was quickly scrubbed from the Internet, Radius and The Weinstein Company have finally unveiled the official trailer for "The Details." And while this spot contains familiar elements like dialogue and characters, it's still no less quirky (and compelling) that the decidedly odder version that preceded it.

There are two kinds of Sundance films. There are those that earn instant buzz, get picked up, continue on the festival circuit and become a success. And there are the movies that get a lot of heat at Park City or feature some big stars, get bought up and then sit on the shelf or underperform. Unfortunately for "The Details," it has fallen into the latter category.
