Isla Fisher & Joel Edgerton Get All Dressed Up For 'The Great Gatsby' Character Posters

We bet when you were sitting in English class pondering over F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," you never imagined that one day it would be a 3D Hollywood blockbuster. But Baz Luhrmann is taking the American classic off the bookshelf and onto the big screen in a way that only he knows how, and as these new character posters reveal, no expense has been spared in the costume department.

We bet when you were sitting in English class pondering over F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," you never imagined that one day it would be a 3D Hollywood blockbuster. But Baz Luhrmann is taking the American classic off the bookshelf and onto the big screen in a way that only he knows how, and as these new character posters reveal, no expense has been spared in the costume department.

Isla Fisher (playing Myrtle Wilson) and Joel Edgerton (playing Tom Buchanan) each have their own poster, dazzling the eyes in typical Luhrmann fashion. The posters feature text from the book instead of boilerplate taglines, to heighten the emotion around each character. And certainly, "smouldering" and "carelessness" could be used to encompass most of Jay Gatsby and his Jazz-age friends as they grapple with various personal turmoils.

"The Great Gatsby" will sit on the edge of the summer blockbuster season with a May 13, 2013 release slated. Posters below. [Warner Bros.]
