There has been quite a fair amount of a buzz surrounding The Great Gatsby movie, with every eager to see what Baz Luhrmann has come up with. So far, we have been treated to a few pictures here and there, as well as the odd bit of onset footage and a teaser trailer.
Well, now we have finally been treated to a brand new trailer for The Great Gatsby and it does give a little insight into what Baz Luhrmann is up to with this project. The visuals in this movie trailer are simply fantastic and Baz most certainly gives us his own take on the Jazz Age.
The official synopsis for The Great Gatsby is:
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.
The Great Gatsby stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Debicki and is set to be released on May 10, 2013 in the US and May 17, 2013 in the UK but for now, check out the new The Great Gatsby trailer.
