In full disclosure, I know not one thing about the story of The Great Gatsby; not this newly produced movie, not the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, and no adaptation that has ever been constructed. You can call that un-American, you can call it uneducated, or you can call it like I do, which is that I just didn’t read the damn thing, but I have to be honest about this…
This looks really really good.
Check it out for yourself:
I do enjoy me some Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet is interesting and intense, Moulin Rouge is beautiful, although it does take itself a bit too seriously, and I have yet to view Australia, so I will have to get back to you on that one) and I am definitely a big fan of Mr. Dicaprio. Overall, the sights and sounds in this trailer are simply breathtaking and I’m surprised by how much I am gravitating towards this, but I cannot help but get excited to check this one out.
Where do you stand on this? Will you be spending your Christmas with Luhrmann, Leonardo, and Spidey?
