If you ask me, this is the best trailer for any movie set to release in 2013 that I’ve seen so far. Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the classic novel The Great Gatsby looks hella amazing with DiCaprio back in fine form as Gatsby and supported by a cast that includes Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, and Amitabh Bachchan. It looks like all the movie goodies have really been utilized this time: great performances and dramatic tension, with an equally titillating soundtrack to match the human drama.
The Great Gatsby will release May 10, 2013, and all indications thus far are that it will be a contender for all the major awards next year. We might even forgive Luhramann for the travesty that was Australia. Maybe.
