Nothing will top my excitement for director Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic THE GREAT GATSBY. As we get closer to the release date, we are seeing a few of the character posters make their stunning debuts. Yesterday we saw the poster featuring Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson and today we see the release of three more posters featuring a few more colorful characters; Nick, Tom and Jordan. Take a look below.
Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire) is the novel’s narrator. He’s a Midwestern boy who graduated Yale and is World War I vet. He rents a small house in West Egg next door to mysterious millionaire, Jay Gatsby (played by Leonardo DiCaprio). Daisy Buchanan (played in the film by Carey Mulligan), Nick’s second cousin, lives across the bay with her husband Tom (played in the film by Joel Edgerton).
And speaking of Tom, here he is below. You may recall from yesterday’s post, the very married Tom is having an affair with Myrtle Wilson. Tom is a millionaire in East Egg and he’s a selfish brute who acquires women like he does possessions.
Jordan Baker (played by Elizabeth Debicki) is Daisy Buchanan’s friend, mistaken for Nick Carraway’s girlfriend, and is also a professional golfer. She also has a reputation for being “fast” and is a gossip fiend.
THE GREAT GATSBY arrives in 3D and 2D theaters on May 10, 2013.
