'The Great Gatsby' Trailer

We also have the first poster for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the F.Scott Fitzgerald novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer and poster for The Great Gatsby, which arrives in theaters December 25. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jay Gatsby in director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Tobey Maguire portrays Nick Carraway, Carey Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan, and Joel Edgerton rounds out the cast as Tom Buchanan. Watch as these fine actors come together for what could be a Best Picture hopeful at the end of this year.

The Great Gatsby Poster

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. 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 was released May 10th, 2013 and stars Lisa Adam, Frank Aldridge, Amitabh Bachchan, Steve Bisley, Richard Carter, Jason Clarke, Adelaide Clemens, Vince Colosimo. The film is directed by Baz Luhrmann.

    Don't care for either Leonardo DiCaprio OR Tobey Maguire, but the movie certainly looks interesting. Never read the book, but I'll have to pick it up and read it before the movie. Anyway, I LOVED Moulin Rouge!, but I hated Romeo + Juliet. Here's to hoping this goes over as well as Moulin Rouge! did... At least for my wallet's sake.

    yea I dont get how this will be any better in 3D, this doesnt seem like a 3D movie. But its got Leo and he usually nails his performances. Dont even come at me about J. Edgar if you didnt like it, I loved it and felt Leo got snubbed by the Oscar committee. What does this guy gotta do to get the gold???

    @bawnian-dexeus I have no idea. The 3D really seems pointless and seems to be there only to enhance the cgi Ny landscape, but even still, it's not necessary. At all.

    Anyways, this trailer underwhelmed me. I was hoping it would showcase a bit more of the acting and such.

    Very much a Moulin Rouge feel to it.

    I think this looks excellent. I'm a little baffled by the fact that it's in 3D, though. What's next? Are period movies gonna start being in 3D too when they have no reason to be? lol

    Had to read the novel this year for English. It was fairly interesting and I'm actually kind of excited to see how this turns out. Trailer has me a little skeptical though, like it's all glitz and glam with little story. I'm waiting though.

    Definitely feels like a Baz Luhrmann film. I'm looking forward to it.

    This movie looks glitzy, glamorous, and ostentatious. The trailer has the spirit of the 20's, no doubt. But...it's still Gatsby. If this follows the book to the letter or close to it, the film will end up feeling icy cold. Fitzgerald purposely created these characters to be among the most shallow characters ever. Unless great detours are taken in the screenplay, watching this film will feel like a chore, not a pleasure.

    Not as authentic as I was expecting, but on the big screen might looks a bit better. Still, can someone explain to me the 3D? Me no comprendo

    I thought the book sucked. Although everytime someone has to name one of their favorite books, they always say "The Great Gatsby". Anyways the film actually looks kind of entertaining, I might check it out.

    I was never really a big fan of this story but thats probably because it was required reading material in high school. But with this cast and director, well i am very interested to see how it turns out.
