March 26, 2013

The Great Gatsby

"You want too much!" Spring is here, April is just around the corner, and that means May isn't too far off to kick off another blockbuster summer. We've seen some TV spots for big releases like Iron Man 3 and Monsters University, and now another promising summer film is getting the TV treatment as well. The first two spots for The Great Gatsby, which will also be playing at the Cannes Film Festival after it opens in theaters, have arrived, and they showcase some great new footage, including what looks to be a powerful performance from Leonardo DiCaprio, and another stunning turn from Carey Mulligan. Can't wait!

Here's are the first TV spots for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, found via The Film Stage:

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 film hitting theaters in 3D on May 10th, 2013. Well?

    Looking like another stellar performance from Leo.
  • Really like the titles on this. And the design of the sets.

    This really does look quite incredible. If it turns out to not be at least very good, then whoever made these trailers is a genius (one I will hate for all eternity for falsely exciting me).
  • Honestly felt he should have won best supporting in Django, but I believe this performance will triumph that accomplishment so much more. Looks as colorful and detailed as I'd expect any Baz luhrmann film. Very excited.

    I remember reading an article talking about Leo taking a great from acting for awhile. So is this his last movie before that break?

      No...he's in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street coming I believe this fall or winter...but other than that...yes.
