Yesterday was the opening day of the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival! Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby opened the festival with a premiere event.
The Great Gatsby cast members Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Debicki, Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton, and Amitabh Bachchan attended a photo call earlier in the day before the big premiere. Later in the evening, the stars walked the red carpet and were joined by several big Hollywood names; including directors Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee.
Actors such as Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Freida Pinto, Christoph Waltz, Paz Vega, and Vidya Balan also attended the event. Plus, Lana Del Ray, Florence Welch, and Jay-Z attended as they all contributed to the unique soundtrack.
