In what can only be seen as yet another recycled version of films of old (not that old, true, but yes, this one has been done before), comes the release of Baz Luhrmann’s new trailer for The Great Gatsby.
True to form, not everyone is a fan. But, then, most movie lovers weren’t huge fans of Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet (sorry, I liked his version almost as much as the ’68 Zeffirelli film). It’s either that audiences and critics simply don’t like Luhrmann’s “out of the box” films (I find this hard to believe since Moulin Rouge did pretty well at that box office) or, perhaps, they’re just tired of the film industry’s propensity to rehash older films. Count me among the latter.
Good or bad, here it is. This Gatsby version stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Macguire and Carey Mulligan and will be released in December.
