The Great Gatsby Movie Summer 2013

The Great Gatsby, the famous novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, has been adapted for the silver screen and is set to hit theatres on May 10, 2013 and will surely be the must-watch movie of summer 2013. The big-budget film adaptation of The Great Gatsby stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Cary Mulligan, Jason CLarke, Joel Edgerton, and Tobey Maguire. The film is set mainly in Long Island and New York City and features extravagant costumes, sets, and plenty of jewels and vintage cars. We think Carey Mulligan is the perfect choice to play Daisy and can’t wait to see how Leonardo DiCaprio fairs as the eccentric millionaire, Gatsby. They’re big shoes to fill, but we’re certain Leo’s up to the challenge.

If you’re unfamiliar with the book, it goes a little something like this:

Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner now living in Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. He is drawn into Gatsby’s circle and quickly becomes a witness to Gatsby’s undying obsession and greatest tragedy.

We’re busy re-reading F. Scott Fitzerald’s book to prepare for the May release of the film and want to know… are you as excited as we are? Leave a comment and let us know if you’d rather the story be left to the book, how you feel about the actors chosen, and anything else Great Gatsby. We’d love to hear your thoughts! Watch the trailer below.


Other movies we can’t wait to see this summer are the movie adaptation of The Host and Tom Cruise’s Oblivion. We have a feeling we’ll be spending almost as much time in the theater as we will outside in the sunshine!
