The trailer for "The Great Gatsby," Baz Luhrmann's new adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, shows promise. (It certainly couldn't be as bad as the 1974 adaptation, which was flat and passion-less, despite a cast that include Robert Redford, Mia Farrow and Bruce Dern.) The new version, scheduled for a Christmas release, stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan as the lovers separated by a vast gulf of wealth (not to mention marriage vows). The party scenes featured in the trailer bear a close resemblance to the scenes in Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge," and that's a good sign, because it contrasts sharply with the lifelessness of the earlier version.

Rick Snider of Biglerville, Pa., was the top winner in the grand-prize drawing at the Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale last Sunday, walking away with a boat, motor and trailer from Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Boats. "Aside from my kids, grandkids and wife, this is the most awesome thing to ever happen," said Snider, who qualified for the drawing by catching an Angler Award-qualifying 40.5-inch striped bass off Breezy Point in Calvert County from his sailboat. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources presented more than $70,000 in cash, prizes and merchandise at the celebration of fishing attended by more than 2,000 people, including sponsors, contestants and their guests, at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis.

Peyton Manning and Eli Manning have filmed a trailer for a fake police drama called “Football Cops” in which they disarm gun-wielding criminals with footballs. Well, I think it’s fake, but I really hope it’s not. I don’t know about you, but I would definitely watch the Manning brothers be buddy cops if DirecTV actually produced it.

If the trailer for "Luv" is any indication, Baltimore is about to get itself some serious screen time. In the just-released teaser for the movie starring Common, Baltimore is everywhere -- there are glimpses of any number of city neighborhoods including Mount Vernon, the Inner Harbor and Domino Sugar, the Howard Street bridge and what looks like Druid Hill Park. Of course, it's unclear if city boosters will be cheering for this one since, subject-matter-wise, it seems cut from the same drug and gun-themed cloth as "The Wire.

Too much of Ryan Gosling is always a good thing. Gosling takes on a more mainstream comedic (and shirtless) role in Friday's "Crazy, Stupid, Love. " And I'm excited about it. But I'm also looking forward to seeing him in "Drive," out this September. A description of the film from IMDB: "A Hollywood stunt performer [Gosling] who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong. " At first read, it sounds like another crappy action movie, perhaps starring Vin Diesel.

Officials with the Maryland Transportation Authority said the truck was carrying heavy stone slabs that were thrown all across the highway during the accident.

Several toll lanes on southbound Interstate 95 prior to the Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore were closed Tuesday afternoon after a tractor trailer collided with a pick-up truck at one of the toll entrances. The accident, reported to Maryland Transportation Authority officials about 5:18 p.m., forced four lanes of traffic to be closed as hazardous materials crews responded to 20 gallons of fuel reported to be spilled on the roadway, said Tamory Winfield, a MdTA spokesman. No injuries were reported, but the lanes - No. 15 through No. 18 - could remain closed for some time, Winfield said shortly after 6 p.m. First Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman, said the accident appeared to involve the tractor trailer, the pick-up truck and one other passenger vehicle.

Real estate agents have long boasted of the lengths they'll go to market properties. Now, for some, the sky's the limit. As unmanned aircraft become more widely available, some agents have started to use drones to sell listings, inviting prospective buyers on aerial tours of country estates, waterfront acreage - and even standard, suburban development. "A buyer today wants to see a stunning Hollywood trailer experience," said Robert McArtor, an agent with Re/Max Components in Fallston, who uses a GoPro camera mounted on the belly of a quadcoptor to take aerial video of his listings.

Netflix picked up the promotional tempo for the Feb. 14 debut of Season 2 of "House of Cards" with the release of another trailer last week. This one is worth it for Francis Underwood's assessment of what appears to be his swearing-in as vice president of the United States. "Democracy is so overrated," he says, noting that not a single vote was cast in his favor. If Underwood does officially assume the vice presidency in Season 2, we'll have two American vice presidents created on the soundstages of Baltimore: Underwood and Selina Meyer (HBO's "Veep")
