The Great Gatsby is one of the greatest American stories to ever be told. We all can learn a thing or two from Gatsby trying to achieve the American dream, and film director Baz Luhrmann plans to put all of that front in center, with all the colors, sounds, lights, and extravagant fashions of the 1920s in his adaptation of the acclaimed novel.
The film was originally scheduled for a release late last year but was pushed back for a summer release, and by now you may know that WB is in desperate need of a hit. Check out the newest trailer for The Great Gatsby below.
Everything about this trailer has Luhrmann’s name written all over it. Nothing is held back and his attention to detail is on point. Some of the selected songs from the official soundtrack fits into the film but also feels somewhat contemporary.
This is only the second trailer, but it looks like there are a lot of award worthy performances in it and come Oscar announcement time we could be hearing a lot of names from the cast being called up.
The Great Gatsby stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Debicki. The film opens in 3D on May 10th.
