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.
Here are the six character posters for Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby, found on Emileeid (via IMPAwards):
If you haven't seen the latest energetic trailer for Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby, you can still watch it here.
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.

These are so air brushed that I'm starting to feel airbrushed

The Great Gatsby exists as a commentary of just how absurdly artificial people can be when it comes to the pursuit power and popularity; I'd say posters airbrushed to oblivion are amusingly pertinent.

That is an interesting thought but i was referring to how every poster you see these days looks comical and cartoonish. Did you see guy pearces iron man poster? You can't be telling me iron man 3 is a commentary on how fake people are.

Not at all, just found it interesting in this particular case 🙂

Cool, very technicolor art deco-esque....but would prefer something more designed and symblic. Still, cant wait for the movie!

I just can't get excited for this, it's been done before and hackneyed to it's core, I hope it's good, but I won't be paying to see it.

It's been done before? I can't say that about any of Baz's films. Even when he's adapting existing material (e.g. Romeo and Juliet) it's nowhere close to what's been done in the past. He certainly puts his own stamp on things, for better or worse.

Is this a futuristic Gatsby populated by "skin jobs"?
