The Great Gatsby PosterThe Great Gatsby
Director: Baz Luhrmann
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 143 Minutes
Release Date: May 10, 2013

Directed and co-written by Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby follows aspiring stockbroker and would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the Spring of 1922 to chase the American Dream.

Carraway ends up on Long Island, next door to a mysterious millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, old-money husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton).

Drawn into the mesmerizing world of the super-rich, Carraway finds himself engulfed by the passions and pleasures of the Jazz Age and the fantasies, romances, and deceits of those around him.

Based upon F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s 1925 novel, Luhrmann’s film adaptation is co-written by Craig Pearce, who penned the scripts for Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, and Moulin Rouge! Influenced by Italian Grand Opera and Bollywood films, Luhrmann’s body of work is defined by lush, vibrant images bursting at the seams with life and bombastic soundtracks, often comprised of contemporary music.

The Great Gatsby: NES Game

What’s that? You want to play an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System version of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s immortal classic, The Great Gatsby? No problem, I can make that happen!

If you simply can’t wait for Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming film adaptation (which opens May 10th), you can whet your whistle for Roaring Twenties mischef with this bad-ass retro game adaptation.

Play as Gatsby’s neighbor Nick Carraway and battle your way past butlers, flappers, and gangsters at one of Gatsby’s bacchanalian parties. In classic NES platformer fashion, collect coins and throw your hat (which acts as a boomerang) to clear a path through Gatsby’s grounds. But beware, if you die, you’re told, “Game Over, Old Sport!”

The Great Gatsby is one of the greatest American stories to ever be told. We all can learn a thing or two from Gatsby trying to achieve the American dream, and film director Baz Luhrmann plans to put all of that front in center, with all the colors, sounds, lights, and extravagant fashions of the 1920s in his adaptation of the acclaimed novel.

The film was originally scheduled for a release late last year but was pushed back for a summer release, and by now you may know that WB is in desperate need of a hit. Check out the newest trailer for The Great Gatsby below.

The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann certainly has a knack for spectacular music and equally spectacular visuals. From Moulin Rouge to his adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, Luhrmann has never sold anything short and put out more than a 110% in his movies. Now the first trailer for Luhrmann’s big-screen adaptation The Great Gatsby has arrived, and while it capture’s spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel visually, the music queues can come into question.

Watch the trailer here below.

But it’s not like the music can bring the film down, not with a cast that consists of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carrie Mulligan, Isla Fisher, and Joel Edgerton. A lot of the bright lights, fashion, and set pieces are something you would expect to see in a Luhrmann film.
