1922. Nosferatu was released. Construction on Yankee Stadium began in the Bronx. Insulin first successfully treated diabetes. And Jack White and Jay-Z ruled the radio airwaves...wait, what? Well, at least, that's the case in the first trailer for director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel, Luhrmann's adaptation isn't the first to make it to the big screen. It is, however, the first to make it in 3-D. While Fitzgerald's story of love and class warfare doesn't seem like a natural fit for eye-popping effects, the first Great Gatsby trailer showcases the lavish spectacle Luhrmann has in store for audiences. Luhrmann's visual style is no secret to anyone that has seen his 1996 version of Romeo & Juliet or 2001's Moulin Rouge. Both also featured an eclectic soundtrack. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.23.12 by Ryan
