"The Great Gatsby" as You've Never Seen it Before (Trailer)

The internet is buzzing this morning after the trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. From the moment the trailer starts rolling you know this isn't any Gatsby you've seen before. Who else but Luhrmann would pair Gatsby with Jay-Z and Kanye?

It looks like it will be all we've come to expect from Luhrmann. It's got great visuals and a modern soundtrack. It's probably not got a whole lot of what you would normally think of in regards to The Great Gatsby yet it will work because Luhrmann specializes in that kind of movie magic.

What do think of the trailer?
