The First Trailer for Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' Adaptation
Australian director Baz Luhrmann has already delivered tragic romance in the form of Moulin Rouge and his contemporary set adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, but now the filmmaker is telling another classic story in the form of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, in 3D no less. With an amazing main cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton, the adaptation already sounded fantastic, but now the first trailer affirms our excitement with a contemporary feel (a Jay-Z and Kanye West song helps) next to the period setting and story that just works. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby originally from Apple:
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 December 25th this year.
