In Baz Luhrmann's film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (co-written with Craig Pearce), Leonardo DiCaprio (he of Titanic, The Aviator, and Inception) plays the title role of the very rich party animal Jay Gatsby, who has an adulterous affair with the married Daisy Buchanan (An Education and Shame's Carey Mulligan), whose husband, Tom (Animal Kingdom and Warrior's Joel Edgerton), also happens to be having an affair with another woman, Myrtle (Confessions of a Shopaholic and Wedding Crashers' Isla Fisher). As the story's narrator, Nick Carraway, Spider-Man's Tobey Maguire tries to keep all the different affairs straight, so to speak.

The previous big-screen Gatsbys were Warner Baxter in 1926, Alan Ladd in 1949, and Robert Redford in 1974. The previous big-screen Daisys were Lois Wilson, Betty Field, and Mia Farrow. Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby opens on December 25, 2012. The period drama will be DiCaprio's second major 3D release this year, as James Cameron's 3D-converted Titanic opens in the spring.
