'Great Gatsby' is playing this weekend in Cartersville.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Baz Luhrmann's take on "The Great Gatsby," which is at times more style than substance – just like like the novel's main character himself – say some critics. "The Great Gatsby" is rated PG-13 and runs two hours and 22 minutes. Find movies playing in Cartersville by using our Moviefone locator above. Here's what else the critics are saying: Baz Luhrmann’s new film version of The Great Gatsby is stylish, slick, funny and entertaining—a bit detached at points, a bit overblown at others. That should be all that matters. — Jeremy Mathews, Paste Magazine Just because a film looks like it was dipped in 18-karat gold doesn’t mean it’s rich in quality. Take this 3-D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. …

'Iron Man 3' is playing this weekend.
Robert Downey Jr. and gang are back for the third "Iron Man" installment. "Iron Man 3" is rated PG-13 and runs two hours and 20 minutes. Find movies playing in Cartersville by using our Moviefone locator above. Here's what the critics are saying: This weekend, the summer movie season kicks off in spectacular fashion . . . with Disney and Marvel's "Iron Man 3." The third film in the series and the fourth featuring national treasure Robert Downey Jr. as genius billionaire playboy-philanthropist Tony Stark (after last summer's superhero free-for-all "The Avengers"), it raises the stakes considerably, to the point that, should RDJ never want to put on the robotic suit again, the story would be nicely and tidily resolved.
