Leo DiCaprio's The Great Gatsby Hits Theater's May 10th

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most gifted actors of this generation. He never makes a bad film! His film choices are stellar and now we will get to see him in the upcoming film "The Great Gatsby".

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker created his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role.

The actor stole our hearts when he hit the small screen back in the 90's appearing on the tv shows Parenthood and Growing Pains. It didn't take the world long to realize this kid had something. He was incredible in the film What's Eating Gilbert Grape in 1993 and that is what launched his impressive film career. He went on to steal our hearts playing Jack Dawson in the film Titanic.

Up until 2009 (when the film was bumped from the top spot by Avatar) it was the highest grossing film of all time. Leo went on to give outstanding performances in every film he has ever been in! The Man in the Iron Mask, The Beach, Gangs of New York, Catch Me if You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island and Inception.

His body of work is outstanding and he has been underated in the awards categories. He has been nominated for 3 Academy Awards and let's face it, he should have won at least one. He was nominated back in 1994 for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape". In 2005 he got the nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for "The Aviator" and in 2006 was nominated in the same category for his performance in "Blood Diamond".

DiCaprio has been nominated for 9 Golden Globe Awards and took one home in 2005 for "The Aviator". In 2007, he was nominated twice in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for "Blood Diamond" and "The Departed". He was nominated for Django Unchained, J.Edgar, Revolutionary Road, Catch Me if You Can, Titanic and What's Eating Gilbert Grape.

"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
