'Great Gatsby' Becomes 1st Baz Luhrmann Film to Cross $100M Domestically

Baz Luhrmann's boisterous and opulent "The Great Gatsby" has overcome some withering reviews to emerge as an unlikely box office hit.

Warner Bros. announced Friday that the Roaring '20s love story has crossed the $100 million mark domestically after 14 days of release. "The Great Gatsby" is the first of the Aussie director's films to reach that milestone stateside. Luhrmann's previous highest grossing domestic release, "Moulin Rouge!," netted $57.4 million when it debuted in 2001.
