Under unseasonably cloudy skies and dodging a few raindrops, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire kicked off the 66th Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday just hours before walking the red carpet for their blockbuster film The Great Gatsby, which opened the star-studded 12-day extravaganza of movies and parties on the French Riviera.
"Every time I go to Cannes it feels like I'm entering the helicopter scene in La Dolce Vita; it's an insane experience," said DiCaprio, who posed for photos on the fabled Croisette next to his Gatsby costars.
Emma Watson, who stars in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, premiering Thursday, was spotted among the early celebrity arrivals at Nice International Airport on Tuesday – along with Paris Hilton, Cannes jury member Nicole Kidman and British singer Florence Welch.

From the Jazz-Age fashions to the Prohibition-Era cocktails to the one-of-a-kind cars, viewers will be able to relive the Roaring '20s vicariously through the film adaptation of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic The Great Gatsby, scheduled to hit theaters on May 10.
True, the Baz Luhrmann-directed film also boasts an all-star cast – Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, for starters – but here are a few other reasons why the 3D film already ranks as a must-see.

Great Scott, the Cannes Film Festival has its opening film – and accompanying stars!
Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan are expected to attend the French festival's opening night, as their film The Great Gatsby – Baz Luhrmann's extravagant take on the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel – will kick off the festivities May 15.
DiCaprio, 38, who has not made an official Cannes appearance since 2007, and Mulligan, 27, are expected to be joined by other cast members, including Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton and Tobey Maguire, who plays the Jazz Age novel's narrator, Nick Carraway.

The Twilight Saga might be coming to a close, but Robert Pattinson's career continues to make headlines.
Deadline confirmed that Pattinson will star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, the inspired-by-true-events story of a kidnapping gone wrong directed by James Marsh (who won Oscars for his films Man On Wire and Project Nim). The steamy crime drama follows a couple who kidnap the richest man in town for ransom and bury him.
Glee and Gossip Girl also announced a slew of cameos, while Aaron Paul secured a very different film role for the Breaking Bad star.
Keep up with who has been cast below:

Fans can now get a sneak peek of Baz Luhrman's screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, as narrator Nick Carraway.
Based on the 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, the film is due to open Dec. 25 and centers on the mysterious, wealthy (and romantic) Jay Gatsby, played by DiCaprio. Mulligan is the object of his undying affection, Daisy Buchanan.
Though set in New York's Jazz Age 1922, the film, in typical Luhrman fashion, features modern music from Kanye West and Jay-Z, as well as Jack White, according to the 2½-minute clip, which also features lavish parties, costumes and fireworks. Twenty-three, skidoo!

After marrying in England last month, Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford stepped out as a couple for a charity event in London Thursday night.
The lead singer of Mumford & Sons, Mumford, 25, and Mulligan, 26, have kept their relationship fairly private, but were seen Thursday walking arm-in-arm into the ARK Gala Dinner at London's Kensington Palace.
The fundraising event raises money for children's charity partnerships.
It's not the only charity work Mulligan has done this week. She also put the Prada dress she wore to Monday's Met Gala on eBay, saying she'll donate all proceeds to Oxfam.
