Well not anymore. The people over at Warner Bros. have decided they best not overburden us, and are saving The Great Gatsby until the summer of 2013.
What this DOES mean is that lots of changes have been made on the pop culture front. For one thing, it totally threw a wrench into the Oscar race. This was a movie that was almost guaranteed to get Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress nominations. It was also heavily speculated that both Carey Mulligan and Leo would take home the gold. Now Leo will have to see if he can score a Best Supporting nod for his role in Django Unchained.
Another interesting way to note is how this is going to effect fashion. The Roaring Twenties have long been roaring up the trend forecasts, and The Great Gatsby had it set to explode for the Fall/Winter season. Will everyone still be on board without this Moulin Rouge!-like push to a trend? Or will it kind of fizzle in the “err I don’t know how to translate this to real life” category. As someone who was nerdily hoping for the trend explosion, this was probably my biggest disappointment. IS IT TOO MUCH TO ASK TO BE ABLE TO WEAR MY BEJEWELED HEADPIECE IN PEACE?
What do you think? Are you totally bummed that you have to wait even longer for this sure to be amazing movie? Will this effect your exploration into the 20s trend? Or are you all set with Downton Abbey? I don’t mean to get all Marc Anthony on you, but I NEED TO KNOW.
