While the prospect of Beyoncé and Andre 3000 covering Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black" has many intrigued, one person who isn't a fan of the whole endeavour is the late singer's father. "I don’t think she brings anything to it," Mitch Winehouse told the Daily Mail. "I wasn’t asked for my permission if they could record it." But he then goes on to clarify that the filmmakers "have got to pay for the privilege, which is what they are doing. I can’t tell you how much it is but it’s a lot of money." So he's down with this if the price is right? Either way, the song has been completed and you can now hear the results.

Aside from the visuals, perhaps the most striking aspect of Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby“ thus far has been the film's music. Luhrmann’s movies, particularly “Romeo + Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge!," have always been known for their lustrous soundtracks, and “The Great Gatsby” is no different in that regard. The xx are among the number of artists rounded up to provide tunes for the movie, and their song “Together,” which was written exclusively for the film, has just been made available to listen to in full. You can check it out below.

Who better to direct a documentary about Beyonce than Beyonce? That seems to be the thinking behind the upcoming pic about Mrs. H-O-V-A, mother of Blue Ivy and pop music star extraordinaire. And now we have a brief taste of what B will dropping in 2013.

Music video directors making features are pretty hit and miss. For every David Fincher, Spike Jonze, or even Michael Bay, there’s a dozen or so video directors who never quite seem to make the leap (we’re still waiting on the masterful Chris Cunningham to make his feature debut, hey Chris!). However, it looks as if a regular Lady Gaga and Beyonce music video director, Stephan Zlotescu, will be trying next, only he’s already caught the attention of a major studio.

Well, a movie calling itself "Epic" should probably kick off with an appropriately epic trailer. While we didn't quite get that with this, the first glimpse from the Fox/Blue Sky Studios' (loose) adaptation of the William Joyce book "The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs," it's still a promising-enough looking clip that draws us into a strange and magical world.

20th Century Fox and Blue Sky have certainly never been shy about padding out their animated movies with as many big time celebrity voices as possible, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it makes a difference to the quality of the end product, it certainly can't hurt, and it makes the red carpet a lot more fun.
