A new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby has just been released (unfortunately the film now won’t be until May 17 in the UK). This one offers a deeper look at Luhrmann’s take on the Gatsby character. Clearly the film will not have the refined tone of the novel or Jack Clayton’s adaptation. However the cinematography looks superb and the film clearly aims to be lavish and decadent (like most of Luhrmann’s work). I really like the musical theme used in both trailers and can’t wait to see Carey Mulligan’s portrayal of Daisy.
Watch for yourselves here:
