Yo, you want some Jay-Z with your classic English literature? How about some blazing hip hop beatz in a Jazz Age drama? Inspired mashup or potential disaster? The jury is still out on Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" but there is no doubt that on a visual level, this film will be nothing short of a knockout.

At the moment -- though we expect at least one or two of these movies will blink and move in the next few months -- Christmas Day is gonna be a pileup of high profile movies with "Playing The Field," "The Guilt Trip," "Django Unchained" and "The Great Gatsby" all set to open. And the latter two films are already pulling out the big guns. 'Django' screened footage in Cannes and has a teaser trailer dropping at any day now, while 'Gatsby' already got a full trailer out of the gate. And if you can't get enough 'Gatsby,' well, here's a bit more for you.

Well, the first trailer for "The Great Gatsby" arrived earlier this week and it proved two things: 1) there seems to be no limit to where Kanye West and Jay-Z's "No Church In The Wild" can be used, and 2) for better or worse, this movie is a Baz Luhrmann film all the way.

When it was announced that Baz Luhrmann would be directing a film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," anyone who knew the Australian director's work sort of knew what to expect. They might not have guessed that he'd make the whole thing in 3D (which he has), but they knew you'd get something lavish, operatic and heavily styilized, with party scenes that finally lived up to some of Fitzgerald's descriptions.

We're still seven months away from the year's end, but with the unveiling of trailers for "Skyfall" and "The Master" yesterday, 2013 seems that little bit closer now, doesn't it? Unless the Mayans were right all along, Christmas this year will bring two major film releases in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" -- which we caught glimpses of yesterday at Cannes -- and Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel "The Great Gatsby," both of which star Leonardo DiCaprio.

As you might have noticed, the 2011/2012 awards season is finally over: the Oscars were on Sunday night, "The Artist" was the big winner, Meryl Streep finally got her third statuette, and "Hugo" basically won everything else. And so we get to put all this talk of what might get nominated, what might win, and who will definitely win, to bed for a year.

Well here we are, in the brave new world of 2012. And at present, it's not too scary, although we swear that we'll beat the next person to death who makes a joke about the Roland Emmerich film. And after a 2011 that turned out to be a pretty decent year for cinema (if not necessarily one for the ages), we're now staring out across a few months that seem fairly barren, as the early months of the year always do.

Well, they're here folks! The first two images that Warner Bros. (courtesy of Sassisam, via The Film Stage) has chosen to release from Baz Luhrmann's splashy and expensive take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's required reading list staple "The Great Gatsby" and, well, they look like an adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," albeit one with a pretty enticing cast.

Since giving her breakthrough performance in 2009’s “An Education,” Carey Mulligan has become well-known to audiences for playing winsome, beautiful characters who convey intelligence and vulnerability in equal measures. But in Steve McQueen’s searing new drama “Shame,” she insists that audiences will see a new side of her, and not just because she quite literally exposes herself to them. “This character is kind of me in extremis,” she told The Playlist at the recent Los Angeles press day for the film. “Sissy is sort of me at my ugliest and my worst, and at my most sort of daring – or relaxed, maybe.”

Okay, so when they're not shooting indoors with Baz Luhrmann, it looks like the cast and crew of "The Great Gatsby" are venturing about town including locations like Centennial Park, an urban grassland in Sydney's Eastern suburbs.
