The second trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s THE GREAT GATSBY has arrived, and if you were wondering what to feel about the newest film version of the classic novel, wonder no more.
Focusing primarily on the view of Maguire’s Nick Carraway, the new trailer brings us straight into the rich and eccentric world of DiCaprio’s Gatsby. The acting is wonderful, the scenery and cinematography is gorgeous, and the story is perfection.
Oh, and Kanye West is somehow involved…
But stop listening to me praise it…take a look at the trailer below, and praise it yourself!
THE GREAT GATSBY, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, and Jason Clarke will bring classic literature back into the mainstream May 10, 2013.
From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. “The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
