The-Great-Gatsby-Character-Poster-Leonardo-DiCaprioWarner Bros. have just released a brand new trailer for their new Summer movie The Great Gatsby which comes from Director Baz Luhrman. It has an all-star cast (including Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire, Gemma Ward, Callan McAuliffe and Amitabh Bachchan) and as you’ll see from this new trailer, an all-star soundtrack which has been overseen by Jay-Z and features songs from his other half Beyoncé, André 3000, Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine. This trailer shows off much of the talent listed including Beyonce singing Back to Black made famous by the late Amy Winehouse.

Baz Luhrmann’s “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 (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). 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.

The Great Gatsby is released May 17th and is set to open Cannes 2013. Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
