Gearing Up For Gatsby

We have nearly a year to wait for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, & Tobey Maguire.
Have you seen any of the production stills? Here's one I couldn't resist reposting from LeonardoFanUK

What do you think? What will people say? Do you think it can ever compare to the novel?
Afterall, the 1974 version was alright, but came no where close in terms of opulence. And it had one dynamic ingredient that the novel lacked: Robert Redford.

Could the maker of Australia honestly knock this out of the park? I'm outrageously doubtful. For starters, I'm concerned to see such a summer spirited film released on Christmas Day. I would have been pulling for a 4th of July release.

Do you predict this to be a flop? Or will Leonardo be able to fill a closet with shirts of every conceivable colour with all his earnings?

What say you, ol' sport, do you think this 2012 film cause the late F. Scott Fitzgerald to roll over in his grave?


  1. I don't know if I can see Leo filling redford's shoes! Ya never know though! He pulled off a pretty good arnie! We will see!! Eee!! -"I love Great Gatsby!" lol

  2. Thanks, Kimosabe! It was fun trying to figure out who this was! "I could have drowneded!"
