Today, Warner Bros. releases a slew of new stills and Behind the Scenes images from Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film, The Great Gatsby. The past week we posted some of the tracks from what seems to be an amazing soundtrack. Click to listen to the song samples, Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful,” and The xx’s “Together.”
“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). 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 of 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.
The film hits theaters in 2D and 3D on May 10th.
Check out the all the glitz, glamour and drama from the Gatsby world in the galleries below and let us know what you’re most excited for in this new imagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.
