Shot in 3D, the film will hit cinemas on December 25 this year.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays the movie’s lead character, while Tobey Maguire plays Nick Carraway and Carey Mulligan appears as Daisy Buchanan. Other members of the film’s cast include Wedding Crashers star Isla Fisher and Australian actor Joel Edgerton.

The Great Gatsby was shot in Luhrmann’s native Australia, although Fitzgerald’s story is set on Long Island’s North Shore and in New York during the summer of 1922.

The Great Gatsby has been adapted for film many times before, with the most famous version being Jack Clayton‘s 1974 offering. In that particular film, Robert Redford took on the lead role of Jay Gatsby, with a script written by Francis Ford Coppola.
