Check out the new action-packed TV spot for The Great Gatsby

Mar. 26, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Yep, you read that right. I said action-packed. For those of you who went to high school in the United States and didn't rely on Cliff's Notes, you probably don't remember too much action in THE GREAT GATSBY. But, when making a movie these days you often need to alter even the classics. Baz Luhrmann proved with his ROMEO + JULIET that this can often work wonders for the source text.

This new TV spot is a great addition to the two full trailers for THE GREAT GATSBY that we have already seen. It is full of anachronistic music, beautiful camera work, and a star-studded cast. Even in this brief half minute video we have another great rollercoaster of what to expect from the movie.

THE GREAT GATSBY is going to find F. Scott Fitzgerald a whole generation of new fans but could possibly alienate the literati who hold the novel in high regard. I consider myself both a film and literature buff, but I am willing to go along with this little experiment. If Luhrmann fails, so be it, but I am sure it will be one heck of a visual feast.

THE GREAT GATSBY, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Magure, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, and Jason Clarke opens on May 10, 2013 in 3D.

action packed?

all I saw was one punch thrown, some fireworks, a guy diving into a pool and a shadow of a gun. I want my money back! Wait... haha nah, but this looks better than I thought. I really wasn't hooked in by the actual trailers at all myself but this looks kind of interesting based on this little TV spot. I'll catch it when it's on TV... unless the 3D gets great reviews, which is really intriguing -- much like Hugo you don't make a movie like this in 3D unless you're really passionate about 3D and

Never read the book though.

the words action packed & The Great Gatsby is something i never thought would be in the same sentence, even if it's in a sarcastic manner.. Anyway could care any less for this movie.
