Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan get new music in the latest trailer for The Great Gatsby
I think Baz Luhrmann has changed F. Scott Fitgerald’s classic novel, THE GREAT GATSBY, so much that it’s almost a misnomer to call this a remake of Robert Redford’s 1974 film. If you weren’t already convinced that the infusion of modern hip hop with old timey, post-war upper class was going to work, then check out the new trailer below. Personally, I’m excited to see what Baz Luhrmann has in store for us and with a cast headlined by Leonardo DiCaprio, it has to work on some level. For you music fans, this trailer might be a little more exciting since it features the newly announced Beyonce and Andre 3000 cover of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’. Oddly enough, their song is only used sparingly in the beginning, but it’s the first listen we’ve gotten since the song was announced.
Directed by Baz Luhrmann, THE GREAT GATSBY stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire and Adelaide Clemens. The film opens in 2D and 3D on May 10, 2013.
