We’re just 14 short months away from the latest film adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Unlike its predecessors, this one is in 3D and is being directed by Baz luhrmann. The movie also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy, and Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan.
There’s still a lot that we haven’t seen, and knowing Luhrman – a ton that we would have never expected, but for now we at least get our first shot of Maguire as the ever Dapper Caraway.
“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.
