The Great Gatsby

  • Movie

Between the trailers, the stills, and your vague recollections of 9th grade English class, you may feel like you’ve already seen Baz Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsby. Even so, this awards bait adaptation turned summer blockbuster certainly looks appealing — especially in these pensive new character posters, which combine fabulous ’20s style with the shiniest eyes this side of The Host.

Can English rose Carey Mulligan credibly embody American Jazz Age icon Daisy Buchanan? Will Leonardo DiCaprio’s Gatsby force the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to finally come to its senses? And what’s Tobey Maguire like these days, anyway? We won’t know for sure until Gatsby is finally released May 10 — but in the meantime, these six images can get the discussion started. Prepare to be borne back ceaselessly into the past:

Warner Bros

Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby

Co-starring the verdant glow that taught you what symbolism is.

NEXT: Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan

What a beautiful little fool.

NEXT: Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker

This is the Aussie actress’s first major film role; she made her big screen debut in the 2011 comedy A Few Best Men.

NEXT: Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson

Look familiar? It should; Warner Bros. released another version of this poster in December.

NEXT: Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway

This may or may not double as his Pleasantville yearbook photo.

NEXT: Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan

Maybe he’s not so jazzed about the movie’s released being pushed back after all.
