The Great Gatsby
We know what would solve 'The Great Gatsby's' mixed reviews -- replacing the entire cast with cats! Not that we're blaming the acting, we're just saying it would be a movie of cats in tuxedos drinking at parties. Can you even imagine all the shiny objects they would get distracted by? Cat flappers? Cats driving old-timey cars???? If you're having a hard time imagining all this, we made these posters of the 'Gatsby' cast as cats to help you along.
Baz Lurhmann's 'The Great Gatsby' has been a while in the making. After originally planned for a release this past December, the film was swapped for a start-of-summer premiere in the hopes of better profits. Now we're only weeks away from seeing Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character Jay Gatsby, and we've got so much swag to give out in celebration.
It's nearly the summer season (at least for movies), so it's surprising how quiet 'The Great Gatsby' has been in selling itself. Sure, it's going to be opening the Cannes film festival, but it's not being sold as a tentpole summer event picture. Regardless, the film has released seven new clips to get us excited.

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.
