6 New Posters for THE GREAT GATSBY

The Great Gatsby Banner Poster

Six new character posters have been released for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby". There's not too much to these posters. They're the usual character portraits. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Elizabeth Debicki. Fans of the novel expecting a classical approach to their favorite book should probably curb their expectations, or avoid this altogether. Luhrmann has also directed "Romeo + Juliet" (also starring DiCaprio) and "Moulin Rouge". He can certianly handle something more subdued (see "Australia"), but judging from the trailers and the fact that the music for the film will be composed by Jay-Z, I wouldn't count on it. "The Great Gatsby" opens on May 10, 2013 (in 3D).

Official Synopsis

"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"
