Six Opulent New Character Posters for Baz Luhrmann's 'Great Gatsby'
The eyes! It's all about their eyes! There's a new set of character posters for Warner Bros' adaptation of The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann, that I have to feature because I really like them. Most of these pretty faces are recognizable, from Leonardo DiCaprio to Tobey Maguire to Joel Edgerton to the always gorgeous Carey Mulligan; except for that shot of Isla Fisher as Myrtle, or the who-the-heck veiled girl that is actually up-and-coming actress Elizabeth Debicki. These feature that ornate gold pattern as a sleek border and you'll notice DiCaprio (Gatsby) is the only one with the frame on the left side. Nice touch.
The Great Gatsby is directed by Baz Luhrmann (of Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet previously) from a script he wrote himself with Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel of the same name. Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and finds himself drawn into his social circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy. Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Isla Fisher and more also star in the movie hitting theaters in 3D on May 10th this summer.
