“The Great Gatsby” is based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The adapted screenplay is written by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce and produced by Luhrmann, Catherine Martin, Douglas Wick, Lucy Fisher and Catherine Knapman. Executive producers include Barrie M. Osborne, Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and Bruce Berman. “The Great Gatsby” stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke and Amitabh Bachchan.
“‘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 Great Gatsby” will be in 3D and 2D in select theaters May 10.
