“The Great Gatsby” will rise the curtains at the inauguration of the 66th Festival de Cannes on May 15. Truly, a rare opportunity for one of the most anticipated films this year. If you didn't know, "The Great Gatsby" is adapted from the famous novel of the same name by American author Francis Scott Fitzgerald and set against the roaring twenties on the East Coast of the United States. The film depicts the romantic and tragic figure of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), as narrated by his friend Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire). The opening film will be screened in 3D – for the second time during the history of the Festival, following "Up" in 2009. For now, you can catch the latest trailer of the film after the jump.

On the same day the Festival gets underway, May 15, “The Great Gatsby” will also open in cinemas nationwide. Both in France and internationally, the film will be distributed in 2D and 3D by Warner Bros. Pictures and in certain regions by Village Roadshow Pictures.
