The Great Gatsby First Look Photos

Well, Ms. Daisy Buchanan, don't you get around. Thanks to a tip via our friends at The Film Stage, we've got a brand new look at two official first look photos from Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, his adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, that's currently shooting in 3D down in Australia right now. Not that we haven't seen some good-looking set photos of the cast in this already, but these are two official shots and they do look quite good so far. Tobey Maguire stars as Nick Carraway, hanging out with Daisy Buchanan, played by Carey Mulligan, as well as Jay Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Bring on the Fitzgerald!

Tobey Maguire & Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby

Warner Bros' new take on The Great Gatsby is being directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, Australia), from a script by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce. Adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald's beloved novel set on Long Island that centers on Midwesterner Nick Carraway who is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway sees through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await. In addition to Maguire as Carraway, Mulligan as Daisy, and DiCaprio, this also stars Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton, Gemma Ward, Callan McAuliffe, Amitabh Bachchan and Jason Clarke. It's scheduled to hit theaters in 3D on Christmas Day in 2012.

Carey Mulligan is flawless, but still I can't find a reason to justify the 3D. What the hell, it's not like you're gonna be deeper in the book or something, unless they're gonna blow up the pool and make DiCaprio fly over Gatsby's house covering it with his blood. In that case, it's gonna be awesome.

You can always not cry about it and go to the next theater over that will have in in 2D.

I wasn't talking about my position on 3D or how I'm gonna watch it, I just found it really not suitable for dramas and meaningful movies like Gatsby will hopefully be. It's entertaining, it's a distraction, and it's not what Gatsby needs.

Two words: Baz Luhrmann. The man is an innovator, whether we (the audience) wants it or not. Just call it "visionary".

I think this is a realistic test of whether 3D is just a gimmick or not. The director is hoping that 3D will draw the audience into this dramatic world on a visceral level, versus the standard use of 3D which is more focused on drawing an audience into the action and visual landscapes of films. The difference may seem subtle, but in this case it is incredibly dramatic. I for one am curious to watch an entirely drama-driven film in 3D. Not to mention, this is a period piece from a time all of us on this site have never experienced.

I really want to be excited about this, but Baz has me worried.

Does Leo have the "de-ager" effect on him of something? Has he just lost some wright for the role? Anyways, he looks a lot younger to me. Carey Mulligan again, looks absolutely stunning. Like she was born to be a "flapper".
