‘The Great Gatsby’ Trailer

I saw an unbelievably fantastic trailer this weekend, for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. We caught it in 3D, and oh my dear sweet baby Jesus, the glitter, the music, the CAST!, the fireworks, confetti – it looks like Moulin Rouge got caught in the roaring 20s with Jack Dawson and just SIGN ME UP RIGHT NOW. (This is coming from somebody who loves Moulin like a drug and while watching the blu ray, was certain the TV would start bleeding red and blue paint. I LOVE Luhrmann’s cracked-out interpretations of stories and mashups of color and modern music. I am also LONGING for a 3D re-release of the 2001 Parisian sparkler.)


And in case you were wondering what the hell that killer track is playing over the last 2/3 of the trailer, it’s ‘Love is Blindness’ by Jack White. You’re welcome.

  1. I have to agree, this trailer looked amazing. I remember liking the book, but this looks like an entirely different experience. Cast looks awesome, too. Definitely going to see this one when it comes out. 😀

  2. I love this post for many reasons, the top 3 being your love/obsession of Moulin Rouge (I’m not alone!), Jack Dawson, and the Jack White song. Also, I am really excited for The Return of Tobey McGuire.
    I totally felt like this was Moulin Rouge meets Gatsby as well, so I’m really curious to see how Luhrmann does it. It’ll be entertaining no matter what, though, I’m sure 🙂
