For his next lavish, star-studded production, Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Australia) is going the 3D route with an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s revered classic The Great Gatsby. Headlined by Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan, we’ve got the first trailer today.

Starting things off with Jay-z and Kanye West‘s No Church In the Wild, this tease segues into a Jack White cover of U2‘s Love is Blindness and while the production design seems to be spot-on as expected, there is a lack of energy and cohesiveness to the editing here. With a stacked cast and Luhrmann at the helm, who seems to be having fun in the 3D realm as seen in some framing here, I’m still looking forward to this one. Also starring Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, Elizabeth Debicki and Amitabh Bachchan, one can see the trailer below via Apple. »
