Everyone in high school English at one point has to read The Great Gatsby but it has never been given a definitive film adaptation. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as the title character, with Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke joining him in Baz Luhrmann’s fantastical 1920’s New York. Watch the trailer after the jump and then read my review.
Katheryn Bigelow’s follow up to her Best Picture-winning The Hurt Locker is another modern war film, Zero Dark Thirty (ZD30). And she tops that movie in every way. Starring Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler, Joel Edgerton and Chris Pratt, ZD30 attempts to recreate the US government’s 12 year hunt for Osama Bin Laden. Watch the trailer then read my review after the jump.
