Warner Bros helped F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby come to life. Baz Luhrman has taken the role of directing this movie. For the few who are unfamiliar with the novel, the story follows a pursuing writer which is played by Tobey Maguire who chases the all time American dream and move to New York City in Spring of 1922. By doing this, he encounters Jay Gatsby who is played by Leonardo DiCaprio who is a mysterious millionaire. Personally, this movie looks great and if its anything like the novel i can hardly wait to see it!

Here is the official synopsis for The Great Gatsby :   “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.

This film also stars Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, and Adelaide Clemens. The Great Gatsby opens in 3D on May 10th.

Here is the new TV spot. Let us know what you think! Enjoy.
