Sure we saw the glory that was all of the art deco madness and mayhem in the first trailer for director Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald literary classic THE GREAT GATSBY. But the newest trailer for the highly anticipated film tells us the truth about the flawed hero Jay Gatsby (Leonardo Di Caprio). And ZOMG… I can’t wait to see how that bonkers glorious party will play out in 3D.
It would also seem (as with every Luhrmann film) pop music plays a large part of the movie – at least it does in selling the trailer. While trailer #2 uses the same Kanye West/ Jay Z song from the first trailer (“No Church In The Wild”), we also hear Florence + The Machine’s “Bedroom Hymns,” and a remake of the classic Turtles song by Filter, “Happy Together,” (which, oddly enough, appears on the soundtrack for THE STEPFATHER remake). A perfect little ditty to exemplify Gatsby’s obsession with Daisy, no?!
Take a look at the trailer below and share your thoughts. We think it’ll be fantastic and simply divine!
THE GREAT GATSBY opens on May 10, 2013 in resplendent 3D and 2D.
