“We all congratulate Baz and his amazing cast and crew on the success of the film which will continue to enjoy the lucrative summer play time,” WB distribution prexy Dan Fellman said in a statement.

Sue Kroll, prexy of worldwide marketing added, “We had the benefit of a wonderful collaboration with this extraordinary director and his cast and team.  The film Baz put together, with its modern yet timeless feel, including its surprising musical mix, gave us all the elements we needed to create a pervasive and evocative marketing campaign that has resonated with audiences everywhere.”

Budgeted at $100 million, “Gatsby” reps one of the few female-targeted pics in a summer full of male-driven action tentpoles. Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton co-star in the stylized feature.
