The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby… one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. We read it in high school, saw the movie adaptations from the Frances Ford Coppola film with Mia Farrow and Robert Redford, to the made for tv version starring Toby Stephens and Mira Sorvino, but still we found ourselves wanting more. To see the story retold in a new way.

Enter the upcomming 2013 release of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation starring Leonardo diCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.

Although it’s ┬ánot released in theaters until May of 2013 (too long a wait in my opinion!) the trailers have been making their rounds on the web.

I look forward to seeing the movie went it comes out, and giving a review. Stay tuned!
