The Great Gatsby - Teaser Trailer
Director Baz LuhrmannYear 2012Genre(s) Romance
It is 1922 and Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner who moved to New York to kick off his career, rents a house next door to the mysterious Gatsby who regularly hosts extravagant parties. Everything is different to how it was; bigger buildings, drinking and parties more prevalent; and Nick finds himself becoming increasingly fascinated by the elusive and wealthy character that is Gatsby. Nick's cousin Daisy and her unfaithful, aristocratic husband live across the bay and, after Nick attends a party of his, Gatsby recognises his connection with Daisy and requests a meeting with her hoping to rekindle an old relationship. Nick bears witness to the corrupt and manipulative world of the upper-class and the tragedy and obsession that threatens to collapse their worlds.
Directed and produced by the wonderfully unique Baz Luhrmann ('Moulin Rouge', 'Romeo + Juliet'), 'The Great Gatsby' is a spectacular adaptation of the novel of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It is sparkling with glamour, scandal, deceit, romance and tragedy, taking you on an emotional journey through the 1920s world of the higher class. As per usual, Luhrmann has put his own quirky and eccentric twist on a popular and well-loved story.
'The Great Gatsby' is set for release in cinemas on December 26th 2012.
