A new series of 'The Great Gatsby' posters showcases exactly how you make a novel first published in 1925 (and frequently forced upon high school students) appealing to mass audiences: you fill it with as many stars as humanly possible. Six new character posters highlight six of the upcoming film's characters, letting you appreciate what a truly stellar line-up director Baz Luhrmann has assembled for his adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel.
The Great Gatsby
The dazzling trailer for Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' sashayed online just yesterday, and if it whet your appetite for the world of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic, there's another treat from the Warner Bros. release waiting for you today -- six brand-new posters we've collected featuring all of the main characters!
If things went according to plan, Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' would be hitting theaters next week on Christmas Day, and we might be having a conversation about how Leonardo DiCaprio could be up for both the Best Actor and Supporting Actor Oscar. Instead, the picture moved to May, and we're a little less than six months away from its release. But now there's a new trailer to hold us over.
One of the most anticipated movies this year was supposed to be 'The Great Gatsby,' the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel adapted for the big screen and directed by Baz Lurhmann. That is, until Warner Bros. pulled the film's December release date -- where it was set to go up against 'The Hobbit' and 'Django Unchained' -- even after the studio already teased us with an incredible trailer featuring the glamorous-looking Leonardo DiCaprio all suited up.
We were then left in the dark when it was revealed the movie would be pushed back until next summer with no release date set in stone... until now! So, when will we officially get to see DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and their fellow stars all dolled up for the screen?
When 'The Great Gatsby' moved from Christmas 2012 to Summer 2013, it didn't seem all that troubling. For one, star Leonardo DiCaprio had another picture opening the same day, and Warner Brothers has a big Oscar slate already ('Argo,' 'Cloud Atlas,' 'The Hobbit' to name a few). But the latest rumors suggest that the film is incomplete, and Warner Brothers won't pay for additional reshoots.
As quickly as style-conscious men (including all of those documented in Morgan Spurlock's crazy new documentary 'Mansome') devoured 'Mad Men' for its overabundance of striped bow ties and fedoras, so too are they going after 'The Great Gatsby.' It turns out, though, that men don't have to look too far to copy Leonardo DiCaprio's suave swagger because it all came from Brooks Brothers.
