Sweet Trailer…'The Great Gatsby'

Baz Luhrmann’s latest adaptation of a literary classic comes in the form of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. We all know that Luhrman is comfortable with a big budget/ensemble cast but this looks to put his previous efforts to shame. Grabbing an all-star cast we’ll see Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton offer their talents to this rather splendid looking period piece (which is in 3D for some reason). It didn’t sound too appealing at first but get a load of this trailer…

Fans of The Great Gatsby should feel at ease with Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet) at the helm. Not only is he directing but he also  wrote the script. In case you slept through a large portion of either your high school or college English classes (guilty!), this classic story is about a young man named Nick Carraway (Maguire) who becomes intrigued by the affluent lifestyle of Jay Gatsby, his neighbor (DiCaprio) and quickly becomes entwined into Gatsby’s social circle.

Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby  is slated for a wide theatrical release this Winter on Christmas Day 2012. Whatcha think? Look good so far??

    Goooooorgeous. I don’t much care for the music choice– it’s a modern song about excess done in a modern style that clashes with the tone and appearance of the footage– but everything else looks pretty lovely. I’m on board, sport.
