Earlier today, I was only joking when I said the next character poster for The Great Gatsby may pop up later today. It seems the joke is on me, since Warner Bros. did, in fact, debut yet another character poster, showcasing Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway. Take a look at this new one-sheet from this highly-anticipated 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, directed by Baz Luhrmann.
The novel's narrator, Nick is a young man from Minnesota who, after being educated at Yale and fighting in World War I, goes to New York City to learn the bond business. Honest, tolerant, and inclined to reserve judgment, Nick often serves as a confidant for those with troubling secrets. After moving to West Egg, a fictional area of Long Island that is home to the newly rich, Nick quickly befriends his next-door neighbor, the mysterious Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). As Daisy Buchanan's (Carey Mulligan) cousin, he facilitates the rekindling of the romance between her and Gatsby. The Great Gatsby is told entirely through Nick's eyes; his thoughts and perceptions shape and color the story.Read More
