Baz Luhrmann's 2013 spectacle arrives on both formats this August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'The Great Gatsby' Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack and 'The Great Gatsby - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan for August 27.
'The Great Gatsby' follows Fitzgerald-like, 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 and bootleg kings. 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 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.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $39.99 and the Blu-ray 3D is $44.95.
You can find the latest specs for 'The Great Gatsby' and 'The Great Gatsby - 3D' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they're both indexed under August 27.
