GAH! And to think!
Instead this holiday season, we're only receiving the SECOND full trailer for Baz Luhrmann's new flick, the 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, now set for a May 10th premiere!
But hey! Can't say we're too disappointed!
This movie looks absolutely TERRIFIC!
Ch-ch-check out the preview, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carroway, and Carey Mulligan taking on Daisy Buchanan as they re-interpret the literary classic with the help of musical accompaniment from the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, Florence + The Machine and Filter (above)!
And LOOK! They've even fixed the spelling of Ziegfield's Follies!
IMPROVEMENTS have been made, folks!
This is DEFINITELY one that we cannot miss, regardless of when it finally hits theaters!
We have a very good feeling that one of our FAVORITE books will soon become one of our FAVORITE movies!
How about U?? Are U looking forward to The Great Gatsby?!
