Warner Brothers and director Baz Lurhmann really want you to know that their adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” is coming out. There’s been an abundance of material released in the last few weeks, from trailers to posters, clips and almost the entire soundtrack. With only two weeks before its May 10th release, there’s absolutely nothing that should be a surprise at this point (and if you took high school English and read the original source material, you shouldn’t be surprised at all). With that, the studio have dropped a plethora of images showing everything you’ve seen in all of the above material, only in glossy still form.
The film is a literal feast for the eyes, detailed no better than in these images. The opulence, the bright colors, and the wealth literally dripping from the ceiling is all highlighted, surrounding the flawless cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. There’s no denying the characters of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan will be showing audiences how the rich got down in 1922. The movie is set to play at the Cannes Film Festival in a few weeks, and while reviews will be under embargo for a bit longer, the marketing has certainly helped audiences realize this is a visual treat…and that it’s coming out May 10th (in case you forgot already).
