I must first admit that I have yet to read the novel and I believe my mom actually does have it. I promise to read it! But...let's get into the upcoming movie:
The Great Gatsby
First of all...the movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio. That alone makes me go:
I absolutely LOVE Leonardo DiCaprio and I love the roles that he takes on.
The film also stars Tobey McGuire and Carey Mulligan, and is directed by the phenomenal director Baz Luhrmann.
I believe the film may also have a modern twist to it as well, as Baz Luhrmann tends to do with most of his films (i.e. Romeo and Juliet, also starring Leo & Moulin Rouge). Some people may find that a little frustrating and even though I'm usually not a big fan of remakes or any kind of "twisting" to something classic--based on the trailer the movie actually looks refreshingly different, daring, and pretty darn good.
The Great Gatsby will also be in 3D--something else I'm not a big fan of, but you won't see me griping about it like most people do.
I'm very excited to see this movie and there's already quite a buzz about it on the internet!
The Great Gatbsy(2012) is set to open in theaters Christmas Day of this year.
