It's no secret that I am psyched about the theatrical release of Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Here's a Fun Meg Fact: I was an English Literature major in college. I've probably read The Great Gatsby at least 20 times; it is one of my favorite novels...
'The Great Gatsby' will likely be one of the biggest movies of the year, given the buzz and the fact that it's a colorful update on a famed, beloved literary tale. There's also the amazing, Jay-Z-curated and produced soundtrack, featuring his wife Beyonce, Florence and the Machine, "It" Brit Emeli Sande and more.

It's nearly the summer season (at least for movies), so it's surprising how quiet 'The Great Gatsby' has been in selling itself.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is arguably one of--if not THE--greatest American novel ever written. I've read The Great Gatsby countless times, so when I found out Baz Luhrmann was adapting it for the big screen I couldn't help but scream, "SACRILEGIOUS!" Then I saw Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and I was like, "OK; now we can talk."
