Baz Luhrmann's big screen vision of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby looks amazing. I watched the trailer again recently, and it just looks like it's going to be a great movie. I love the style, tone and feel of the roaring '20s. It's just got a cool vibe. Three new character posters have been released for the film featuring Tobey Maguire's Nick Carraway, Elizabeth Debicki's Jordan Baker and Joel Edgarton as Tom Buchanan.
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
The movie also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Amitabh Bachchan. It hits theaters in 3D and 2D on May 10th, 2013.
Here's the trailer for the film if you haven't watched it in awhile.
