Three more images from Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby have gone online. As we saw from the trailer, this is going to be Luhrmann’s bombastic style through-and-through, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. These new images once again show the vibrant costumes and production design, but we’re left to wonder if the director has successfully translated the soul of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic novel to the big screen.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Isla Fischer. The Great Gatsby opens in 3D on December 25th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Great Gatsby:
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
