'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.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I agree, you don't really see what I used to consider his trademark style in either of the Sherlock Holmes movies, the second one especially.

    @thedude-abides -- Yeah, I was surprised when I saw his original style compared to his modern-day style. I mean, I don't remember "Sherlock Holmes" being anything like that.

    @thedude-abides -- Ha ha! Hopefully not as much as "The Walking Dead", though. This may be a little random, but I just watched "Snatch" for the first time last night, and boy, was it an experience. It's one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, and it was like watching a better version of "Hot Fuzz" while on acid. Such a crazy film!

    @thedude-abides -- Yeah, by the looks of it, I'd say in the 6.0-6.5/10 range. I haven't seen either film, so I can't comment there. I wonder how excessive the melodramatic elements are, though.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I think it'll turn out okay. I gave the 1974 film 2.5 stars, which is about how I see this one turning out. At the very least it'll be entertaining.

    I'm just not a fan of Baz Luhrmann. Moulin Rouge is vastly overrated in my opinion, and it looks like he tried to use that same recipe here -- at least as far as the visuals are concerned.

    @thedude-abides -- Silliness aside, do you think this movie will turn out how it's presented, or feature better motives? I ask** this because, judging by your previous comment, it was clear you didn't take a liking to the direction.

    @thedude-abides -- It seems like this is another biased case. Ha ha, indeed. I just couldn't believe how they could have the audacity to question my viewpoint, only after giving their biased perspective.

  11. thedude-abides

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I'm guessing for the same reason @basquat would question Dicaprio being miscast in all the other great roles he's been in, which he's also wrong about.

    Romeo + Juliet, Titanic, The Beach, Catch Me if You Can, Gangs of NY, Aviator, Departed, Blood Diamond, Revolutionary Road, Inception, and J. Edgar just to name a few films he's been "miscast" in. Not to mention Gatsby, Django, and The Wolf of Wall Street.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx We're wasting our time with this argument.

  12. Nicholaus XX

    @basquat -- Speaking of which, why would you question him being a miscast if you haven't seen "Django Unchained"?

    pretty damn cool trailer
    I read the book back in middle school and I watched the old 1974 version, too
    it wasn't great but it was well-intentioned
    Im hoping this new version is not too flashy and just as intelligent
    and of course, Spider-Man's in it :)

    3d WOW. JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT 3D IS A SOMEWHAT CHEAP NOW AND IT ADDS MORE REVENUE TO A MOVIE. IF IT IS EXPENSIVE TO DO SOMETHING IN 3D THEN WHY DO IT IF IT IS NOT NESSASRAY, IF YOU SHOT A MOVIE IN 3D THAT IS DIFFERENT. EVEN THE LOW BUDJET MOVIES ARE IN 3D SO THAT TELLS YOU SOMETHING

    @ejk1 I hated Gatsby, as well, but I'm still looking forward to its adaptation. I'm assuming they'll have to take leaps, given, if I remember correctly, the book is short and not much happens until the end, plus Lurhmann's films are usually pretty long, again, if I remember correctly.

    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???

  33. J.P.

    @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.

    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.
