Must See: First Official Photos From THE GREAT GATSBY

Baz Luhrmann's THE GREAT GATSBY has released its first official photos and they don't disappoint. Of course it is a $127 million production, so expect much more of where that came from as they stretch the dollar in Australia.

One can almost imagine what it would feel like to be sitting with them during that era. Clearly the wardrobe will be stunning. I'm anxious to see more - a teaser trailer perhaps.

Here's the movie's storyline:
“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.

THE GREAT GATSBY stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan.

Supposedly Oheka Castle (pictured) on the Gold Coast of Long Island was a partial inspiration for Gatsby's estate. Gorgeous or what? I love the reflecting pools and landscaping!

Can't wait to see what Luhrmann has created here.

THE GREAT GATSBY opens December 25, 2012.
