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.

It's the biggest Oscar winner of all time, but it's also a code word for disaster: Titanic.
Now, an Australian billionaire plans to recreate the legendary ship, and charge $1 million for a first-class cabin when his replica Titanic II re-traces the original 1912 route of the great ship that went down.
Once the new ship is built in China, its maiden voyage is scheduled for late 2016 and will hopefully go the full distance from England's Southampton to New York's West Side.
Its furnishings, said its financier Clive Palmer, will include a Turkish bath (just like on the original) and the ornate grand staircase which Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet descended in the 1997 James Cameron movie.
It will also have some things the original didn't: air-conditioning and enough lifeboats.

Leonardo DiCaprio may have lost the Golden Globe for his role in Django Unchained, but that didn't stop the actor from enjoying himself a few nights later.
Alongside best friend Lukas Haas, DiCaprio visited West Hollywood hot spot Bootsy Bellows on Tuesday night.
Donning a newsboy hat, DiCaprio mingled with club promoters, while Haas did "his own thing," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Leo hung back and sat on top of the banquette. He was getting a ton of attention from the ladies."
The usually quiet DiCaprio was "upbeat" and "even danced and clapped along" as music from Jay-Z and Kanye West played. And when the actor was approached by other clubgoers, he was "very gracious and chatted with them for a few minutes," the source adds.
Once the lights came on, the two friends reconvened to figure out their plans for the rest of the night.

Miranda Kerr and longtime pal Leonardo DiCaprio joined a late-night dance party at new club Rosewood last Friday, partying with Cameron Diaz and a contingent of Australian models.
Their meet-up at the club comes amid some tabloid reports that Victoria's Secret model Kerr – who's married to Orlando Bloom, 35, and gave birth to their son Flynn in 2011 – was getting flirty with DiCaprio.
But a club source at Rosewood said the two were simply out for a little music and dancing with a group that included Naomi Campbell's billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin.

An older woman for Leo!
Leonardo DiCaprio was photographed on the set of his new movie in Brooklyn on Tuesday, sharing a smooch with a woman nearly three decades his senior.
In the photo, DiCaprio, 38, is locked in a passionate kiss with actress Joanna Lumley, 66, while filming The Wolf of Wall Street in Prospect Park.

Leonardo DiCaprio knows how to throw a party – with purpose!
The actor celebrated his 38th birthday on Saturday in the name of charity.
Beyoncé Jay-Z, Cameron Diaz and Emma Watson were among the guests at the Wolf of Wall Street actor's birthday festivities at The Darby in New York.
The event raised money for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and the charities it supports, which include direct donations to Superstorm Sandy relief.
Live performances by Gary Clark Jr. and ELEW kept guests – including Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Chris Rock, Edward Norton, Jonah Hill and Jamie Foxx – on their feet throughout the evening.
Ultimately, the bash raised $500,000 for the American Red Cross.

Stars are stepping up to help with relief efforts after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast.
Lady Gaga announced on her website she would pledge $1 million to New York and American Red Cross for Superstorm Sandy relief.
"If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower East Side, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," she wrote. "New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion."

Have you voted? Leonardo DiCaprio wants to know.
With Election Day upon us, stars are flooding the Internet in an effort to get out the vote – urging all U.S. citizens to make their voices heard, regardless of whom or what they support.
Chief among the appeals is a new video from Vote4Stuff, a nonpartisan campaign led by DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire – who are joined by Jonah Hill, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zac Efron, Benicio Del Toro and Selena Gomez, among others, in an amusing montage of civic pride (with a few amusing insults thrown in for good measure).

Darlene Cates was unforgettable in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, playing Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio's morbidly obese mother Bonnie, who hasn't left the house in years while in the grips of depression following her husband's suicide.
Now, almost 20 years and a number of health problems later, Cates, 64, has lost nearly 250 lbs. – and is feeling optimistic that she might act again.
"I can do moms real well. I don't have to delve very deep to find Mom in there," the Forney, Texas, resident tells the Dallas Morning News in a new interview.

Joined by five pals, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire managed to build in some bonding time on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The actors stopped by Cut inside the Palazzo hotel for dinner.
Maguire, who requested vegan items, was brought corn salad, tomato salad and butter lettuce. He was also given fingerling potatoes, squash, romano beans and sautéed spinach.
DiCaprio, on the other hand, joined in with the rest of the party and ate steak with a few sides.
Maguire "only drank water," a source tells PEOPLE, while pal DiCaprio sipped on a Raspberry Velvet cocktail made with Grey Goose.
