Here we have another trailer for the movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. The Roaring Twenties; the Golden Age; the Jazz Age; Prohibition and bootleggers; flappers and speakeasies; peaked lapels, shorter jackets, and fedoras–what is not to love?
“The Great Gatsby” follows would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
This new trailer also showcases some new music that will be featured on the soundtrack, mainly a stand-out cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” by Beyoncé and André 3000. Jay-Z executive produced the soundtrack and also has a track with other notables on the tracklist including Jack White, The xx, Florence and the Machine, and Lana Del Rey.
