A new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s THE GREAT GATSBY has been released. The film is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Isla Fisher, and Joel Edgerton. The Great Gatsby is scheduled to hit theaters May 10, 2013.
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.
