    J.J. Abrams may want to give Leonardo DiCaprio a call about appearing in the next "Star Wars" movie.

    "The Great Gatsby" star is going to know all about space travel.

    We just got word that a trip sitting next to DiCaprio on Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic space flight went for $1.5 million at amfAR's annual gala and auction at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

    Another pair of tickets on the same flight went for $1.8 million. Branson hopes to launch the first trip from New Mexico at the end of the year. Seats on the flight go for about $200,000.

    That's not all DiCaprio had to offer at the star-studded event, which took place at the Hotel du Cap.

    A $2.3 million bid nabbed a package that included two tickets to the premiere and afterparty of DiCaprio's upcoming drama "Wolf of Wall Street" and an Oscar weekend that includes a room at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a Chopard watch, tickets to the Weinstein party and attending Elton John's annual viewing bash and Vanity Fair's legendary soiree with...Heidi Klum!
