Leonardo DiCaprio and his real-life buddy Tobey Maguireget all tuxed up for their roles in The Great Gatsby as they both vie for the affections of Carey Mulligan‘s infamous literary character Daisy Buchanan.
Set to be released this Christmas, the movie (headed up by Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann) features gorgeous costumes and lots of glitz. Oh, and a steamy sex scene between Leo and Carey.
If you’re unfamiliar with the F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby is about:
Midwesterner Nick Carraway (Tobey) is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (Leo). A love triangle then arises between Nick, Jay and Daisy (Carey). Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.
