Great Gatsby; Party Like It's 1922
Luhrmann's Great Gatsby trailer promises an even bigger party
Everybody knows that Gatsby threw the best parties. Seduction, bootlegging, scandals, flappers, alcohol, dancing – his parties had it all.
Now with the help of director Baz Luhrmann, Gatsby is at it again.
Studios finally released the first official trailer of Luhrmann’s new adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s American classic last night, giving us a brief glimpse into the partying lifestyles of Long Island’s wealthy.
The film is still set during the Roaring Twenties, a time when “the buildings were higher, the parties were bigger, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.” However, Luhrmann has updated Fitzgerald’s American classic quite a bit. The movie will be in 3-D. The trailer ditches the ragtime music of Fitzgerald’s era, using Jay-Z and Kayne West’s No Church in the Wild instead. Think of it as the Roaring Twenties 2.0.
