The Truth About Gatsby

Director Baz Luhrmann had originally intended his re-imaging of The Great Gatsby to be released this past holiday season but due to unknown circumstances the film has been pushed back to this May. To tide eager fans over until then the below trailer has surfaced.

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Joel Edgerton as her husband, Tom. The trailer is certainly stunning, and does an excellent job capturing the opulent lifestyle of the film's main star as imagined in F. Scott Fitzgerald's original novel.

Mr. Luhrmann is known for his attention to detail and captivating visuals. From what we can see so far he's got the 1920's nailed in both scale and style. What's most interesting about the film is that it was recently announced that Jay-Z will handle the score of the film. You may have noticed the trailer began with "No Church in the Wild" playing, a track from Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative album Watch the Throne. Luhrmann himself says that the music of the film is an area of great importance. The two are, admittedly, a bit of an odd pairing, but we're excited to see what the duo come up with. Let us know what you think of the upcoming film in the comments below.
