We just got our hands on Warner Bros. second official trailer for “The Great Gatsby,” based on F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. The trailer is completely different than the first one and it looks like they’re going in a whole different direction. It actually looks like a whole different movie altogether.
The trailer overemphasizes the mystery behind who Gatsby really is instead of the romantic tone of the first trailer. The first one lacked tension and felt bland and forgettable. This new one feels like it is about to become an action movie. There is much more suspense and all eyes are on the secrets Gatsby holds and how all hell is going to break loose because someone is antsy to reveal what he holds so private.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton and Jason Clarke star.
Plot: Nick Carraway (Maguire), a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysteriouspast and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio). He is drawn into Gatsby’s circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.
The new movieis written and directed by Baz Luhrmann (Australia, Moulin Rouge, Romeo and Juliet), and is set to hit conventional and 3D theaters on May 10th, 2013.
