2 TV spots for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby

2 TV spots for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby

Warner Bros US and Warner Bros India have released two first TV spots for Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby.

The film features Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular Gatsby, with a formidable supporting cast including Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Isla Fischer.

The movie looked like a contender for awards season but was pushed back to summer 2013. That’s likely a strategic move to boost the box-office rather than a lack of faith in the project as every piece of promo material released to date looks extraordinary.

The Great Gatsby opens in Ireland on May 17th, 2013.

The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway 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, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. 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.
