Trailer for ‘The Great Gatsby’ Remake Emerges

Published in 1925, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is considered one of the greatest classic novels. The glamorous setting encapsulates the height of the roaring 20′s, and the historical intrigue in regards to this time period has lead to several adaptations. In 1974 it was adapted to a popular film, and in 2000 it was turned into a made for TV movie. Now it is receiving another re-imagining, this time at the hands of director Baz Luhrmann, known for such films as the modernized Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge. The film features Leonardo DiCaprio and Toby Maguire. Check out the new trailer below.

       @Tony Russo Not sure what you mean, Tony. I’m excited to see Baz Luhrmann’s perfectly adequate movie based on a much better book. He always delivers.

         @michaelferguson Australia? Baz Luhrmann & MTV present Romeo + Juliet? Moulin Rouge was ostensibly a hit but was carried only on the backs of teen girls.

           @Tony Russo I’m not sure if my sarcasm carried through. His films do a fantastic job of appealing to his specific demographic. I just think that a different director (and perhaps revised cast) could save this particular remake from being anything other than a soon-forgotten pop smash.

    A suited Robert Redford is a hard thing to beat…costume design looks pretty damn good this time around though.
