The remake of the 1974 movie gets its first trailer.
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, 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 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.
The film, directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge), stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher, and will hit theaters on Dec. 25th.
