The trailer for this year’s most anticipated film is out. Here is the official trailer for The Great Gatsby! Featuring an all star cast; Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Toby Maguire and Joel Edgerton recreate this epic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Showcasing the grandeur and glamour of New York in the 1920s wrapped around the lavish and mysterious lifestyle of Jay Gatsby, the film follows Gatsby’s alluring lifestyle as seen by his neighbour, Nick Carraway. Love and betrayal are the key ingredients in this romantic drama, leading to obsession and tragedy.
Without giving too much away to those who haven’t read the novel or seen the original film starring Robert Redford, the trailer gives you a tease of the story, and to be honest, with my extreme excitement to see this film, I couldn’t imagine a greater Gatsby than DiCaprio! From the trailer, this film looks impressive, DiCaprio and Mulligan’s performances look to be epic and with director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo & Juliet) the cinematography and costumes will no doubt be masterful and capture the bootlegging, swinging 20’s.
The film will be released at Christmas time in the UK. I predict this film to influence the fashion industry and many Great Gatsby themed parties around Christmas and New Year 2013! What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments!
