Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio will be starring in the Christmas Day, 2012 release of the remake of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.”

Here are some more studio stills from this much anticipated movie.

If you’ve seen the preview for this movie (which I saw in the theater this last Saturday night), you may have noticed the music.

What’s up with that?

“The Great Gatsby” is set in the Roarin’ Twenties Golden Age of Jazz. The music in the trailer was, well, it wasn’t jazz.

At any rate, in the previews, I was impressed with Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance when he meets again with Daisy for the first time.

If you’ve ever run into a crush at a party, multiply that by 1,000, and, that’s the feelings of Gatsby when he sees Daisy again.

Keep in mind that Gatsby has gone off and made a fortune (just for Daisy), and, has bought the house across the sound from Daisy (just on the hope that he will run into Daisy again), and, has thrown wild party after wild party (just waiting for Daisy to attend one of the parties).

This is beyond crush. And Leonardo DiCaprio delivers on the anguish and relief felt by Gatsby in seeing Daisy again.

The formality of pleasant greetings mask the emotional tidal wave that both characters are feeling.

“Gatsy believed in the green light”. And for the first time in many years, his hope was standing in front of him.
