I don't remember much about The Great Gatsby novel when I read it in high school. I remember not really liking it (but that could have been the rebellious side of me in not liking books we were forced to read) and the cover had naked ladies on it (google it). Thinking back I probably never gave the book a real chance because I've met many people in my life who genuinely enjoyed it.

Now, we have our first trailer of the upcoming Baz Luhrmann adaptation of the book. And after watching the trailer, all I have to say is I definitely didn't give the book a fair chance in high school.

Check it out after the jump.

How gorgeous does this film look? Also, I'm insanely intrigued that it is in 3D. This will be an interesting experiment to see if a straight drama can be pulled off in this medium. I'm still on the fence on whether it will enhance the experience or just feel excessive.

THE GREAT GATSBY will be released Christmas 2012 starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan. 


  1. Wow, that doesn't look anything like the book I'd forgotten from high school...

    1. I know! I was thinking if the book "looked" this good, I would have probably enjoyed it more.
