The Great Gatsby – Trailer

23 May

“New York, 1922. The tempo of the city had changed sharply. The buildings were higher, parties were bigger, the morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper. The restlessness appraoched hysteria” – so goes the opening voiceover for the trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. We’ve monitored the casting, we’ve seen the poster and now we can crtique the trailer! Featuring Leo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Australia’s Joel Edgerton, The Greaty Gatsby is the most anticipated screen adaptation this year. The film has been unapologetically filmed in 3D and the trailer is typical Luhramann: contemporary, pacey, colourful and loud. The soundtrack kicks in with Jay-Z and Kanye’s “No Church in the Wild” and segues to Jack White’s rendition of U2’s “Love is Blindness”. That plus Leo DiCaprio looking intense – what’s not to like?!
