First Official Great Gatsby Pics Online

Leo DiCaprio and co live the swanky life

While there have been several unauthorised set pics featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and some of the other cast members from Baz Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsby floating around, Warners has now released a couple of official snaps from the movie, featuring the actors in all their finery. Take a look in the gallery below.

For those not in the know, Gatsby is taken from F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, narrated from the point of view of aspiring writer and World War I veteran Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire). Renting a house on West Egg, Long Island, Nick encounters some of the rich types who enjoy the high life of the locality, including the enigmatic Jay Gatsby and some he already knows, including his cousin, Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan).

Their lives seem to be perfect, but most of it seems to be a front, as they’re all bored and carrying on regular affairs. One – between Daisy’s husband Tom (Joel Edgerton) and a woman named Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher) ends in tragedy.

Luhrmann has been busy shooting the movie in 3D in Australia. The US will see the result on December 25, 2012, but there’s no word on a UK release date just yet.
