The Great Gatsby Trailer Unveiled

The first trailer for Baz Luhrmann‘s highly anticipated adaptation of The Great Gatsby has arrived. We’ve embedded the trailer above–what do you think?

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. There will be a 3D version. On YouTube, a few readers have been tough on the trailer. After 145,000 views, it has earned 91 dislikes and some bitter commentary.

One reader wrote: “This better have actual twenties music in it and not play idiotic modern music. That would force me to bring my saxophone into the theater and redub the soundtrack.” Another quipped: “Looks terrible. One big messy spectacle. Funny there is not mention of Australia in the opening credit next to Romeo & Juliet and Moulin Rouge.” (Via NY Daily News)
