Robotech

After undergoing various stages of development, the long-gestating Robotech is being brought back to life over at Warner Bros.

Based on the anime of the same name, Robotech was first launched in the 1980s in Japan, and was eventually adapted for a US audience by Frank Agrama and Harmony Gold. In the series, humans have adapted alien technology found on the South Pacific Isle, and used it to create giant fighting machines, often referred to as Mecha. These mecha defend Earth from the waves of extraterrestrial threats.

Hit the jump to see who Warner Bros. is eyeing to direct the adaptation.

The Great Gatsby PosterThe Great Gatsby
Director: Baz Luhrmann
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 143 Minutes
Release Date: May 10, 2013

Directed and co-written by Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby follows aspiring stockbroker and would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the Spring of 1922 to chase the American Dream.

Carraway ends up on Long Island, next door to a mysterious millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, old-money husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton).

Drawn into the mesmerizing world of the super-rich, Carraway finds himself engulfed by the passions and pleasures of the Jazz Age and the fantasies, romances, and deceits of those around him.

Based upon F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s 1925 novel, Luhrmann’s film adaptation is co-written by Craig Pearce, who penned the scripts for Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, and Moulin Rouge! Influenced by Italian Grand Opera and Bollywood films, Luhrmann’s body of work is defined by lush, vibrant images bursting at the seams with life and bombastic soundtracks, often comprised of contemporary music.

The Great Gatsby: NES Game

What’s that? You want to play an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System version of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s immortal classic, The Great Gatsby? No problem, I can make that happen!

If you simply can’t wait for Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming film adaptation (which opens May 10th), you can whet your whistle for Roaring Twenties mischef with this bad-ass retro game adaptation.

Play as Gatsby’s neighbor Nick Carraway and battle your way past butlers, flappers, and gangsters at one of Gatsby’s bacchanalian parties. In classic NES platformer fashion, collect coins and throw your hat (which acts as a boomerang) to clear a path through Gatsby’s grounds. But beware, if you die, you’re told, “Game Over, Old Sport!”

The Great Gatsby Image

The Great Gatsby is one of the greatest American stories to ever be told. We all can learn a thing or two from Gatsby trying to achieve the American dream, and film director Baz Luhrmann plans to put all of that front in center, with all the colors, sounds, lights, and extravagant fashions of the 1920s in his adaptation of the acclaimed novel.

The film was originally scheduled for a release late last year but was pushed back for a summer release, and by now you may know that WB is in desperate need of a hit. Check out the newest trailer for The Great Gatsby below.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy Team Up For Anti-Poaching Film

One’s an environmentalist, one is a vegan, and the other is a rising star. You may not see it now, but the three have a lot in common. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy will be working on an animal trafficking project. According to the trade, Hardy has come up with an idea that would play out much like Steven Soderbergh’s Academy Award-winning film Traffic, only this time characters involved in multiple storylines will be affected by their actions relating to poaching.

Warner Bros will be the studio to set up the project and is currently filing through writers to pen a script. Hardy’s inspiration for the story came from friends who served on a special anti-poacher task force.

Life of Pi

Fox went with an unconventional idea with promoting their upcoming film The Life of Pi. Rather than release a traditional trailer, the studio moved forward with releasing a variety of small clips from the film in front of their movies like Prometheus. We’ve also seen a few pieces of promotional artwork for the film.

Now The Life of Pi has a full-length trailer, and it’s nothing short of amazing. Check it out below.

The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann certainly has a knack for spectacular music and equally spectacular visuals. From Moulin Rouge to his adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, Luhrmann has never sold anything short and put out more than a 110% in his movies. Now the first trailer for Luhrmann’s big-screen adaptation The Great Gatsby has arrived, and while it capture’s spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel visually, the music queues can come into question.

Watch the trailer here below.

But it’s not like the music can bring the film down, not with a cast that consists of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carrie Mulligan, Isla Fisher, and Joel Edgerton. A lot of the bright lights, fashion, and set pieces are something you would expect to see in a Luhrmann film.
