Leonardo DiCaprio is going to tell the truth in the second trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby
Okay, so maybe some of you aren't digging what you're seeing so far from Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's THE GREAT GATSBY. What's bothering you? The casting? The possible tearing down of a wonderful story? Luhrmann? Kanye West?
I've never had any problems with a Luhrmann film except AUSTRALIA. Bored me to death. My reasons for liking the director were explained in the last trailer, so I won't reiterate here. What I will tell you is that the second trailer for THE GREAT GATSBY gives you more than the first. You get more of Nick Carraway's (Tobery Maguire) perspective, as intended, and a batch of new scenes. There's also one that might be a spoiler for you if you've never read the book. I am still looking forward to this. Perhaps this trailer will help you change your tune, or provide you with more fire for you debates. Either way, enjoy!
From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. "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.
