I’m busy putting together the 2013 preview package Warner Bros. sent over this morning with new pictures from several of their upcoming films and while Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby is only one of those films, I figured I’d single it out as WB has also released two character posters from the film featuring Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson and Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan.
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 and bootleg kings. 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 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.
Check out the second of the new pictures directly below along with the posters and stay tuned as I will have the full Warner Bros. 2013 preview for you shortly.
