The marketing for The Great Gatsby is bordering on relentless, but with each turn it seems more and more people find themselves drawn to the film so I guess Warner Bros. is doing something right. Today I have a new international trailer and four new posters from the film to share as its overseas potential will certainly get a boost when stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, et al. take the red carpet at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where Gatsby will serve as the opening night film.

The Great Gatsby will open the 2013 Cannes Film Festival following its May 10 domestic release. The story 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.

    I recently finished reading the book in school, which I liked very much, and I can't help but feel that this movie is going to be a disaster. It's not an easy book to turn into a movie as it is (see the 1970s adaptation with Robert Redford), and I'm also afraid that Lhurmann is simply going to go absolutely bonkers with the style and lose the deeper themes found in the book.

      I remember reading the book in high school and hating every moment of it... I also was bored to near death by the Robert Redford movie... I'm sure if I were to re-read the book and rewatch the movie now at the age of 34, my opinion would most likely change... having said that, I think this movie looks good... I used to always want to hate DiCaprio, but over the years I can't deny the fact that he puts in very strong performances and rarely dissapoints add to that, he has a decent track record in the projects he picks.... As far Luhrman goes, he definitely has his signature style... And though I have only ever really liked one of his films, that being William Shakespere's Rome + Juliet... I was able to tolerate Moulin Rouge because of how he filmed it... I think he will add a good dose of energy to the story...
