With all the buzz surrounding Iron Man 3, it is easy to forget that a very good Baz Luhrmann film is releasing seven days later. The television campaign has officially begun for The Great Gatsby remake, a glitzy 3D re-imagining of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. This is the first such promo for the big budget drama which will mark Leonardo DiCaprio’s first film since playing the iconic Calvin Candie in Django Unchained. Django and Gatsby were originally set to collide last Christmas but Warner Bros. thought better of it and bounced off the date. Considering how busy the holiday traffic was late last year, regardless of future performance it seems that the studio made a wise decision.
Stars of the film include Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, and Tobey Maguire. The Great Gatsby enters theaters on May 10, 2013.
