Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire star in the new trailer for The Great Gatsby
Barely five seconds go by in the latest trailer for THE GREAT GATSBY where you don’t instantly recognize this as a Baz Luhrmann film. I still think the use of the Jay-Z/Kanye song in the beginning is distracting, but by the time Filter’s rendition of the classic Turtles song, ‘Happy Together’ starts blaring, it feels like a cross between ROMEO & JULIET and MOULIN ROUGE. Both of those were great films, so if he comes close to that, we’ll be in for a treat. Oh, and for those that were concerned about Luhrmann remaking the old Robert Redford film, rest assured that this looks absolutely nothing like that 1974 film. It also looks like Leonardo DiCaprio gives another stellar performance that I’m sure the Academy will overlook.
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.
