In lieu of the actual film itself, a new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby has been released.
With less shots of the ominous bespectacled Dr. T.J. Eckleburg and more of Leonardo DiCaprio as the mysterious titular character, the new look at the film adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic is both exciting and dramatic. There are also more fantastic short takes on some very important plot points that will have any literary fan flailing in their seat.
Putting all the excitement aside, it’s just little bit saddening to know that this is what audiences could’ve been treated to in just a couple of days. Fans must now wait (however impatient they might be) for the official May release.
But with the ever-so-beautiful Carey Mulligan dressed to the nines as the flapper dress-clad Daisy, we can at least pull some sartorial inspiration from the trailer this holiday season.
Hopefully, the sparkles aren’t too overwhelming come May when the film is released in 3D.
