The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan coming to 3D Blu-ray in August
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that the film adapted from the 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel THE GREAT GATSBY (click the link to read the review), directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke, will be available in both a 3D and 2D/BD/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack on August 27th, 2013.
Here’s the synopsis for THE GREAT GATSBY: The film follows would-be writer Nick Carraway (Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Edgerton). It’s here that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
The 3-disc 3D BD/Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet and 2-disc Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo packs will include the special features: The Greatness of Gatsby, “Within and Without” with Tobey Maguire, The Swinging Sounds of Gatsby, The Jazz Age, Razzle Dazzle: The Fashion of the ’20s, Fitzgerald’s Visual Poetry, Gatsby Revealed, Deleted Scenes and Trailers.
