The Great Gatsby Is The Triumph Of Female-Driven Spectacle

[b][url=http://watchbreakingda]W atch Breaking Dawn Part 2 Online[/url][/b] For In the Woods, he’ll play the married baker, whose wife was rendered barren by a spell placed on her by a real bitch of a witch, whose dastardly ways will be dealt out by Meryl Streep . The baker heads into the titular woods to find the witch, running into all your favorite storybook characters along his journey. While we originally thought Johnny Depp would play the baker, he has officially signed on to play the big bad (presumably wildly eccentric) wolf.

[b][url=http://watchironman3on]Watch Iron Man 3 Online[/url][/b] Into the Woods will begin filming in London this September, and I for one am feeling a lot better about this project now that Corden has stepped into the role. Gatsby was indeed great this weekend. Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic bowed in with $51 million, the third largest opening of the year to date. That was something of a financial coup for Luhrmann as The Great Gatsby made more this weekend than most of his movies have earned domestically during their entire run. But, as great as it was, it still wasn't enough to swing number one.

[b][url=http://watchtheicemano]Watch The Iceman Online[/url][/b] Last weekend's champ Iron Man 3 held on to the top spot, adding $72 million to its now $284 million domestic total. That pushed it well ahead of Oz The Great and Powerful's $229 million as the highest grossing film so far this year. Slightly bigger news is that the third Iron Man entry is poised to fly past the $1 billion mark in international sales by next weekend, making it possible that the movie will break into the international all time top ten before the summer is out.

[b][url=http://watchthecall201]Watch The Call Online[/url][/b] Tyler Perry might not have been behind the camera for Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, but as producer having his name in the title didn't seem to help the movie live up to his usual box office performance. With just $4.8 million the movie tanked in at a very distant fourth place. Given Seth MacFarlane’s knowledge and talent when it comes to musical numbers, it was a little odd that his 2012 blockbuster smash Ted went the route of MacFarlane’s other talent: filthy joke writing. Granted, Ted did sing Hootie and the Blowfish, but that’s not what I’m talking about. His next film, the western-themed comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, doesn’t outwardly look like it will be musically-minded, but his latest bit of casting is just one more step in that direction.

[b][url=http://watchevildeadon]Watch Evil Dead 2013 Online[/url][/b] In other news, Deadline reports Universal Pictures will co-finance the picture, completing the Ted reunion. The film also now has a release date set for May 30, 2014. Tomorrow, Barbara Walters will reportedly appear on The View and let the world know she’s going to retire in exactly one year. During that time, the eighty-three-year-old will interview the President, host numerous ABC specials, continue to appear on The View and perhaps even revive her Academy Awards broadcast. All in all, it will likely be a fitting end to a storied career, but as for whether it could have just as easily waited another year is a matter of serious debate.

[b][url=http://watchgijoe2onli]Watch G I Joe 2 Online[/url][/b] Despite being on the air for more than fifty years, Walters remains one of the more popular journalists working today. Her segments on the year’s most fascinating people remain extremely popular. She’s always a potential candidate to be chosen for pressing interviews, and while she’s had some minor health problems, she’s in remarkably good shape for eighty-three. She easily could plunge forward another few years. That being said,
