A new cast poster for The Great Gatsby was released yesterday, and today has also brought us a 3rd trailer for the film! This trailer feels a bit different to the previous two, and tells us a bit more about the story and relationship between Daisy and Gatsby. There is a very brief new shot of Isla in it, along with the previous spoilery footage. Watch the trailer below, and find HD screencaptures from it in the Gallery.

The Hollywood premiere for the film will be held on May 8th. Premieres in Sydney and Cannes will follow, and I’m sure there will be more too.

Another batch of character posters for The Great Gatsby have recently been released, including a sultry close-up shot of Myrtle. You can view this in our Gallery, and see the other 5 for Gatsby, Daisy etc. at ComingSoon.net. I think Gatsby promotion is going to pick up in the next month, so we probably have a lot to look forward to!

‘The Great Gatsby’ to Open Cannes Film Festival

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the Baz Luhrmann-directed movie, which will screen out of competition May 15.

The Great Gatsby will open the 66th Festival de Cannes, organizers said early Tuesday local time.

The movie will screen May 15 at the Grand Theatre Lumiere of the Palais des Festivals, out of competition as part of the Official Selection.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the Baz Luhrmann-directed film, adapted from the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The movie, set on the East Coast during the Roaring Twenties, depicts the romantic and tragic figure of Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio) as narrated by his friend Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire). Carey Mulligan is Daisy Buchanan, whose husband is played by Joel Edgerton. The book was adapted by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce, based on Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel.

Rapper Jay-Z, who scored the movie, and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan also will attend the premiere, organizers said.

“It is a great honor for all those who have worked on The Great Gatsby to open the Cannes Film Festival,” Luhrmann said in a statement. “We are thrilled to return to a country, place and festival that has always been so close to our hearts, not only because my first film, Strictly Ballroom, was screened there 21 years ago, but also because F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote some of the most poignant and beautiful passages of his extraordinary novel just a short distance away at a villa outside St. Raphael.”

This will mark the second time in festival history that the opening film will be screened in 3D, following Up in 2009.

According to this Mexican article, Isla started shooting new movie The Switch on her birthday earlier this month. I have no idea how accurate this report is, but I have seen photos of Jennifer Aniston on the set so we know production has started, so I will be keeping a close eye out for any sign of Isla.

The Hollywood Reporter report that Isla is being considered for a role in upcoming comedy-drama This Is Where I Leave You, alongside Tina Fey and Jason Bateman:

Tina Fey Joining Jason Bateman in ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

Tina Fey continues to shape her post-30 Rock acting slate, entering negotiations to star alongside Jason Bateman in This Is Where I Leave You, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the book by Jonathan Tropper.

Shawn Levy is directing the movie and producing along with Paula Weinstein.

Tropper wrote the script, which centers on a man (Bateman) whose father dies and tasks his dysfunctional family comprised of four grown siblings with one last request: to spend seven days following the funeral together under the same roof for first time in a decade.

If a deal comes together, Fey will play Bateman’s older sister, a woman who is married and whose first love now has brain damage.

The project, which is eyeing a production start in June in New York, also is casting other female roles: Bateman read actresses Ari Graynor, Isla Fisher, Zoe Saldana and Mary Elizabeth Winstead for the part of the romantic lead, but no decision has been made. Kathryn Hahn is looking likely to play Bateman’s sister-in-law.

Fey is expected to segue into the role after she wraps shooting a leading role in Disney’s The Muppets…Again!, the sequel to The Muppets, which is currently shooting in Europe.

Fey is repped by WME, 3 Arts Entertainment, Ziffren Brittenham.
