On DVD and Blu-ray Today: The Great Gatsby

 
On DVD and Blu-ray today is The Great Gatsby (in 3D!) starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan. It was released last May 10th with an impressive $50 Million on its debut at #2 (very impressive, indeed despite not opening at #1). According to Box Office Mojo, the film's production budget was $105 Million and very successfully made over $144.8 Million on its domestic gross total with over $186.2 Million estimated foreign B.O. total and a worldwide total of $331 Million!

I saw this movie last June, but didn't get a chance to post my film review until earlier this month (which I forgot to post here...). You can read my Film Review: The Great Gatsby on my other (In The Mood For Movies) blog.

Synopsis
Quote:The Great Gatsby” follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
