MOVIE TRAILER: The Great Gatsby


The first official trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby has arrived.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the mysterious Gatsby, our first look at Luhrman’s adaptation is the movie preview equivalent to a visual orgasm of color and creativity. It’s clear Baz is letting every trick in his bag run wild with this feature, and while that doesn’t sound very fitting at first glance, it feels destined to make sure the film lingers with the viewer. You can view the official trailer, after the jump.

For those who have not read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic, the plot of The Great Gatsby is as follows:

“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 opens Christmas Day.
