The Great Gatsby

"Gatsby. He had an extraordinary sense of hope." One fantastic trailer arrived earlier this year when The Great Gatsby was scheduled to debut at the end of this year. However, Warner Bros. already had Oscar contenders in the form of Argo, Cloud Atlas and The Dark Knight Rises (they hope, anyway), so they delayed the film to summer 2013. So now the hype machine is restarting for Baz Luhrmann's new take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton and more sharing the spotlight again in a new trailer. I can't wait to see this film. In addition, those three also get their own character posters along with Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Elizabeth Debicki. Watch it below!

Here's the new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby adaptation, in high def from Apple:

And here's the six character posters for the film, complete with quotes, from the film's Facebook page:

The Great Gatsby is directed by Baz Luhrmann (of Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet previously) from a script he wrote himself with Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel of the same name. Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and finds himself drawn into his social circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy. Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Isla Fisher and more also star in the film hitting theaters in 3D on May 10th, 2013. Well?

    Still looks so great, one of my favorite books of all time and i really wish it wasnt delayed but its going to be worth the wait i hope.

    Why do people keep giving Baz Luhrmann money to make his crappy movies? Especially when it gives him the opportunity to crap on my favorite book.

      What don't you like about how this looks? I'm a huge Baz Luhrmann fan, and I think this looks spectacular, so I'm interested in what people who are turned off don't like about what they're seeing.
      • leo

      I'll Google it, but at first listen, I'm pretty sure that's a drunk rooster.

    Why can no one resist putting awful modern music in period piece trailers? This was fucking cringe-worthy.
    • http://www.firstshowing.net/ Ethan Anderton
      Well, in this case, Baz Luhrmann is using contemporary music in the film, just like he did with Moulin Rouge. I actually like the way Luhrmann uses music like that. Sometimes it's a nice change of pace from sweeping, romantic scores that usually accompany period dramas.
      • Linkfx
        agreed. It's totally Baz Luhrmann's thing. It's safe to say he's the one who if not created that juxtaposition between contemporary music and period settings, he definitely made it mainstream and awesome.

      The music will be the only reason I'd see this. I love the juxtaposition of old vs new.

    Actually looks pretty darn good. The key to adapting a book like this is making it with style, visually it looks great(and will be in 3D) and if the overall 'sound' of the film's score has the type of energy of these trailers...it'll be interesting in the audio department as well.

    The two great gatsby trailers I've seen are two of the greatest trailers I've ever seen.
  • beevis
    the acting and sets are still outstanding ....and sadly, the music is still terrible.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7YGEVuJ4mM Carpola
    Liking all the titles, acting looks pretty decent too, decadent times.
  • Noe
    We complain about remakes, yet when one comes along and tries to change the formula a little bit (in this case, music and style), it's blasted. It's still just a trailer. Come on now, this looks great!
  • CHARLES GAREZA
    Nobody pay attention to those losers. These are the kind of people who'd nominate movies like Van Helsing for best movie and Steven Segal for best performance.
  • D.
    Carrey Mulligan is a goddess all movies with her looks great...
  • Drumzamazin
    Joel looks boss in his poster
