Just yesterday we posted a quartet of character posters for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Now we’ve not just got another one, featuring Carey Mulligan’s Daisy Buchanan, but also a brand new trailer for the film, which suggests this is going to be an incredible looking 3D movie.
The Great Gatsby follows Tobey Maguire’s Nick Carraway, who gets caught up in the high society of Long Island in the 1930s, where he meets the rich, enigmatic Jay Gatsby (Leonardo Dicaprio), and uncovers the desires and machinations of those around him. It’s a great story that’s still waiting for a definitive film version, which hopefully Luhrmann can provide. Elizabeth Debicki, Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher also star.
Interesting the trailer gives things a bit of a thriller angle and make Gatsby seem much more outgoingly flamboyant than he is in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book, as he’s more of a hidden away mystery to most people in the novel. We’ll be able to see whether Luhrmann’s film is a success when it’s released on May 17th, 2012.
