The new film, which co-stars Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan (she reportedly beat out Blake Lively, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley for the role of Daisy Buchanan), is one of many in a long line of adaptations. The Great Gatsby was formerly …

Jessica Alba’s Fake Nude Scene

If you're a Jessica Alba admirer, you probably already know -- and have been disappointed by the fact -- that she doesn't like to do nudity. That's why a scene in the recent film Machete caused many jaws to drop. Well, prepare to have them dropped further.

Piranha Producer vs. James Cameron: The Insults Continue

James Cameron, famed director-turned household name after the success of Avatar, wants to hold 3D movies to a high standard.

Cameron was uncomplimentary of Piranha 2 in a recent Vanity Fair interview, saying “I tend almost never to throw other films under the bus, but [Piranha 2] is exactly an …
