Dicaprio. Mulligan. Maguire. Edgerton. Bachchan. Luhrmann.
As visually decadent and anachronistic as we’ve come to expect from Baz Luhrmann, the trailer for Gatsby was finally released just a few hours ago.
If the trailer is anything to go by, Gatsby is set to be either everything you could’ve hoped for for Fitzgerald’s polarising tale of excess and emptiness in the Roaring Twenties, or disappointingly unfaithful to the novel.
The songs featured are Jay-Z and Kanye West’s No Church in the Wild, and Jack White’s cover of U2’s Love is Blindness.
In the vacuum between dark and light, Siouxsie Sioux and Emmylou Harris, Amelie and Travis Bickle, Huntress Thompson is an idiot lost, and reporting from the field. If you’re after irrational, impassioned rants about cupcakes and Johnny Cash (and you probably aren’t), she’s grumpy, but she’s your girl.
