The Great Gatsby
The remake of the Great Gatsby is one of the most anticipated movies of 2012. The fans of the Robert Redford and Mia Farrow version along with the lovers of the book will have to wait until December 2012.
Leonardo di Caprio I think will give a pretty convincing portrayal of Jay Gatsby – he is snotty and charismatic enough for the role. Tobey Maguire on the other hand doesn’t fit the role, too much of a fiasco. Ryan Gosling, although I don’t find him attractive either, would be a much better fit for the role I think. Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher are nice fits for the roles. Carey Mulligan and Mia Farrow look like they are separated at birth – they are so much a like. And I like Baz Luhrmann as a director, Mouling Rouge is one of my fav movies. I have high expectations for this movie., I think it is going to be one of the hits of next year. I can’t say much about the costumes though, not impressive, not eye-catching, no nothing so far.
