Many have been torn over Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby — I quite liked this apparent melding of modern and classic, personally — but most can, none the less, agree on appreciating the strange, digital-glossed beauty of West Egg and East Egg.
A couple of new shots keep this up, be it through the bright and vibrant colors of the costumes and decor, or even the way in which Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton have perfectly arranged their hair. Any potential problems with adapting a literary classic for the silver screen notwithstanding — just ask Francis Ford Coppola if it’s an easy task — I’m pretty confident this is going to be a pleasure to simply “watch.”
The Great Gatsby pulls its Rolls-Royce into theaters on December 25th. Take a look at the photos below (via Empire):
Afterward, Empire have provided a couple of promotional shots from The Bourne Legacy — honestly, they’re just Jeremy Renner being moody and all. It’s technically nothing official, since it doesn’t actually come from Tony Gilroy‘s film, but a chance to get a better look at the series’ new flag-carrier is something many would like to take.
The Bourne Legacy will open on August 10th. See the shots below:
Last and, I fear, least, are two extra shots from Ruben Fleischer‘s Gangster Squad. One has Sean Penn, as Mickey Cohen, firing a Tommy Gun to noticeable effect, while the other simply features Josh Brolin standing around in a nice suit. All fine stuff — and, to be clear, I was really excited for this just a couple of months back — but that doesn’t change an enormously underwhelming trailer; it just made the film look minor, like the kind of fare that doesn’t half a shelf-life past its opening weekend or first few days on Blu-ray. Let’s all hope I’m dead wrong.
Gangster Squad is set to hit on September 7th. Empire, once more, have the images for your viewing pleasure above and below:

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
