New Trailer For The Great Gatsby
Baz pulls back the champagne curtain

20 December 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

The new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby has splashed down in a riot of style and a little more substance on how his 3D interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel will play out.



The focus this time is firmly on Leonardo DiCaprio's mysterious millionaire, Jay Gatsby. Soundtracked again by Kanye and Jay-Z's 'No Church In The Wild', we see him speeding his banana yellow Duisenberg through New York, Tobey Maguire's wide-eyed Nick Carraway in tow, shaking hands, scratching backs and pulling off shady deals that keep him in shirts, champagne and spectacular parties.

There's more of Meyer Wolfsheim, a shadowy figure inspired by real-life Jewish gangster Arnold Rothstein, played here by Bollywood great Amitabh Bachchan. And then there's Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan) herself, Gatz's long lost love and his tragic flaw.


As the movie's first trailer (below) and this week's new character posters (above) amply demonstrate, this will be absolutely nothing like Jack Clayton's lacklustre take on the novel.

The Great Gatsby
hoons into our movie theatres on May 17, 2013. Look out for more in Empire Magazine next year.
