Leonardo DiCaprio Playing Russian Mystic Rasputin In Biopic
The “mad monk,” as Rasputin was dubbed, has had multiple movies based on his powerful run through Russia, though the trade says that Hall has unearthed new details about the mysterious figure that caught DiCaprio’s eye.
Leonardo DiCaprio Wants Dennis Lehane To Pen Travis McGee
The project is based on John D. MacDonald’s The Deep Blue Good-By, the first in a series of 21 novels centered around McGee, a Florida-based detective. It was published in 1964, and follows a treasure smuggled home by a soldier after WWII.
The Great Gatsby: 9 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie
Like the director’s other works, The Great Gatsby is noticeably, unmistakably Luhrmann’s and whether or not you believe in his vision is largely dependent on your tolerance of the man’s idea of spectacle. It would be nearly impossible to outdo Mr. Fitzgerald, and so Luhrmann tries to visually gives us as different a world as possible while still maintaining the quality of the venerable writer’s pages. It’s not the movie Fitzgerald would have written, but he was never all that good at creating screenplays, anyway.
Great Debate: Is Leonardo DiCaprio Miscast In The Great Gatsby?
Sean praised in particular Leonardo DiCaprio's turn as the mysterious Mr. Gatsby. Kristy on the other hand openly admits to hating the movie, declaring DiCaprio miscast and....
Watch Leonardo DiCaprio Scream His Way Through His Career
Now, we’re not trying to say that DiCaprio’s in danger of becoming the next Al Pacino, who works himself into such a lather at inopportune times that his on-screen screaming tirades have become a bit of a pop-culture joke, but it is interesting to see the occasions where DiCaprio taps into a well of fury spliced together in one reel. I wouldn’t normally associate DiCaprio with angry characters.
The Great Gatsby Will Open This Year's Cannes Film Festival
Here’s the odd part: Gatsby is set to open in the States on May 10, going day-and-date in France with the May 15 screening in Cannes. In years past, Cannes has turned down films that have opened elsewhere already, so the fest’s relationship with Luhrmann must have helped solidify Gatsby as the choice to open this year’s Cannes activities.
Leonardo DiCaprio And Scott Cooper Team Up For 1930s Crime Thriller The Road Home
This will be the second collaboration between DiCaprio and Cooper, who teamed up for Cooper’s upcoming crime thriller Out of the Furnace, which DiCaprio was originally supposed to star in before the role was filled by Christian Bale. But while Cooper was busy with that, DiCaprio was filming Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, which will be out later this year.
Jay-Z Confirmed To Score Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby
Jay-Z and singer-songwriter Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts have been confirmed as working on the film score for Gatsby, as reported on Twitter. “(We) have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby,” Samuels tweeted. “It is too DOPE for words!”
Django Unchained Features Some Of Leonardo DiCaprio's Real Blood
What makes Leonardo DiCaprio's performance in Django Unchained so thrilling is that he allows himself to go above and beyond what we normally see from him. While in his past DiCaprio has shown himself to be a very serious actor regularly in the hunt for an Academy Award...
New Great Gatsby Image Gives Leonardo DiCaprio His Close-Up
Leonardo DiCaprio is currently riding yet another wave of critical acclaim, as awards nominations pile up for his performance in Django Unchained and rumors of another Oscar nomination- -and maybe even a win this time-- start getting louder and louder. But once upon a time DiCaprio would have been competing against himself for all that attention
Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Collared By Kyle Chandler On Wolf Of Wall Street Set
The film has been in production in New York for a few weeks now, and today EW has a look at DiCaprio in action. The image below appears to have the hot shot being carted off by authorities, and in the background you can spot Kyle Chandler as Patrick Denham, the FBI agent who brought Belfort down.
Django Unchained Leads Prepare For Vengeance In New Poster
It’s kind of a good thing that Weinstein already helped sell us on Django with early trailers and cast photos, because this poster effort is pretty bland. The tagline isn’t very fresh, and the idea of Photoshopped leads posing for a camera doesn’t do much to excite about Django.
Django Unchained International Trailer Finally Looks Like A Tarantino Joint
The new trailer gives us an in-depth look at DiCaprio’s approach to playing a flat-out maniac, while simultaneously taking us on a better tour of Candi Land … his vicious Southern plantation. It ramps up the action and the gunplay, where earlier clips showed us the dialogue and the root of the relationships. This, finally, looks like a Tarantino genre picture.
The Great Gatsby Delayed Until Summer 2013
Anyone who was looking forward to a serious Leonardo DiCaprio double feature this Christmas is going to have to change their plans. While both Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby had been scheduled to open on the historically crowded December 25 holiday
New Look At Leonardo DiCaprio In Django Unchained
That's some pipe Mr. Candie has there, befitting a character who looks to be as evil as any villain Tarantino has created. Christoph Waltz, who played the unforgettably evil Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds, gets a chance to be in hero mode this time around, teaming up with escaped slave Django
