The trailer that we’ve been waiting for for so long, finally here’s our first look at “The Great Gatsby” … the highly anticipated adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald\’s novel The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann and new promotional stills from the movie, featuring Carey Mulligan & Leonardo DiCaprio under a tree!!!
Filmed in Sydney and stars Leonardo DiCaprio who plays Jay Gatsby, with Tobey Maguire starring as Nick Carraway; Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton as Daisy and Tom Buchanan; Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson; and newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker. Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Meyer Wolfsheim (in pic below).
“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, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. 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 of 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.
Check out the trailer:
Of course the incredibly talented Catherine Martin is in charge of costumes, what a big job that would have been and I can’t wait to see more.
THE GREAT GATSBY (3D) will release in Australian cinemas on January 10th 2013 with international openings beginning December 25, 2012, across IMAXÂ® 3D, 3D and 2D (boo – I thought we’d get first release).
