Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. It focuses heavily on the relationship between Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and we get to hear some of the original music produced for the film by artists such as Beyonce, Andre 3000, Lana Del Rey, and Florence + The Machine. Luhrmann is known for his vibrant visuals which, combined with some great music, should result in a fun and lively movie.
Watch the trailer below:
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) 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 (Leonardo DiCaprio), 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 film is due for release May 10th in the US and May 17th in the UK.
