“The Great Gatsby” will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 15. Which is surprising because Cannes rarely chooses films that are already out, and the film is being released nationwide on May 10. But it’s a chance to get Baz Luhrmann and company to show up. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke.
