Late Night Trailers: The Great Gatsby

I walk away for a minute and the trailer everyone's been waiting for finally drops.  Figures.  I was a die hard Moulin Rouge! fanatic back in the early aughts.  We can use my parents as witnesses on that one, as I think the sibling and I watched that movie no less than a million and fifteen times (the DVD is actually kind of worn out).  With that in mind, it's safe to say that anytime Baz Luhrmann choreographs a confetti and glitter loaded party scene imma be there in no time flat.  Disappointingly, he hasn't done so in a good decade.  He tried to force feed us the old school romantic epic Australia and then dropped off the map to go on walkabout or something.  After years of rumors on an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (would it be a musical? would it be in 3D?), he finally made it happen and JESUS H. CHRIST IT LOOKS GODDAMN GORGEOUS.  My favorite track off Watch the Throne matched with a quarter ton of confetti? Yes.  Oh yes.  At first glance, my early predictions are: this is the adaptation the book deserves, I'm probably going to love this, and everyone will be wearing drop waist flapper dresses in 2013.

  1. I hope the trailer doesn't do the film justice, because it kind of sucks. Everyone knows the story, but still... it's just a bunch of random lines and pretty scenes.

    That said, I cannot wait! I really like the look of it, and the actors seem to fit the roles. And if Leo gets nominated for an oscar, this time he better win it, or else.
