Film synopsis New York, 1922, the Jazz Age — where the callow Nick Carraway (Maguire), wannabe writer, recalls the tale of super-rich playboy Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio) and his tragic passion for the married Daisy Buchanan (Mulligan), a story that captures a decadent era in all its glory and ruin.

Already from the trailer , promotional stills i can hazard a guess to their being an notable Lurman trademark upon the film which i both i hope for and also hope that this does not over isolated scenery from landmarks or even alienate the audience to the extent of More

Zero interest in this remake, the trailer I don't get, neither do I get Di Caprio in the lead role, it reminds me of Bugsy Malone.

It looks great this film been waiting for it for a long time as it was suppose to be released earlier however as Lurhmann is known as a perfectionist it got moved to May, seriously cannot wait to see it, great cast the trailer looks awesomeee!!!!!!! More
This looks soooo good. Absolutley insane. Even just having Kanye in the background is so weirdly wonderful and the fact Mr Beyonce could be doing the soundtrack is great. Fantastic cast as well. I loved Baz's Roms and Juls so this is shaping up very nicely for me. More
