With all the hullabaloo around a bow-tied Leonardo DiCaprio, we thought it worth remembering that this is not the only pass made at turning TGG into a movie.
In fact, Robert Redford gave a master class in Jazz Age chic way back in 1974—the year young Leo was born.
We’ve said it before, but Hollywood’s been coming up handsome these days.
And even though we originally thought we’d get to see Baz Luhrmann’s neo-Gatsby this weekend, it’s been pushed back to next summer. So instead, we’ll have to settle for these recently released film posters—more evidence of all the literary good-looking-ness to come. We couldn’t be more excited. (A three-piece tweed suit can do that to us…) And don’t worry, you’ll still get your fill of rakish Leonardo DiCaprio this Christmas.
The new trailer for the hotly anticipated Baz Lurhmann remake of The Great Gatsby has been tearing up the Internet today—yes, we’ve got it here—and the flashing scenes of bow ties, tweed and tossed silk shirts (they’re such beautiful shirts) read like the exclamation point on an already stylish lineup of movies for the year.
For whatever reason, we’ve noticed a steep uptick in stylish movies for 2012, and we’re looking forward to watching it all play out—beginning with Moonrise Kingdom’s fastidiously dressed-up quirkiness hitting theaters this weekend. Bond promises to make a good showing, Batman’s bound to have a tuxedo up his sleeve, Gosling’s back in Gangster Squad, we’re hearing good things about The Master, and even this week’s Anchorman 2 teaser has got our leisure-suit interests piqued. We like what we see, and we’d like to keep seeing more. (Stay classy, film industry.)
Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby adaptation continues to trundle along, and a few set photos leaked out this week to prove it. By the looks of it, Tobey Maguire makes a pretty good Nick Carraway, right down to the summer suit. Just don’t try that straw boater at home.
The Great Gatsby has seen a lot of half-hearted film adaptations, but they’ve finally put together one we’re excited about. The advanced snap above is a pretty good indication of why: a pitch-perfect Carey Mulligan as Daisy. But after that…let’s just say, things get complicated.
