The Playlist's Most Anticipated Blockbusters Of The 2013 Summer Season
Ah, summer. That time of year marked by long days, short skirts, and the application of sunscreen. It’s the season where even the most hardened cineaste can put aside their Criterion Collection discs, if only for a moment, and get excited about the jazzy, visual effects-driven blockbusters coming down the pike. The line between “summer” and “any other time of the year,” in terms of movies, keeps getting blurrier and blurrier, with big-budget studio fare like “Oz the Great and Powerful” and “Oblivion” coming out in the spring (we had a Michael Bay movie open in April, for crying out loud – before this it was questionable whether or not he even existed outside of June or July).

Warner Brothers and director Baz Lurhmann really want you to know that their adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” is coming out. There’s been an abundance of material released in the last few weeks, from trailers to posters, clips and almost the entire soundtrack. With only two weeks before its May 10th release, there’s absolutely nothing that should be a surprise at this point (and if you took high school English and read the original source material, you shouldn’t be surprised at all). With that, the studio have dropped a plethora of images showing everything you’ve seen in all of the above material, only in glossy still form.

Well, as you might have already heard bubbling around the interwebs, New York City press got to see "The Great Gatsby" over the weekend, and while lips are firmly sealed until the embargo lifts, Warner Bros. has plenty to share for those eagerly awaiting the movie. 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.

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.

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.
