Here is the first trailer from Baz Luhrmann’s (Moulin Rouge!) The Great Gatsby, an adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel that stars Leonardo DiCaprio (in the titular role), Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton.
It looks decent enough for a first teaser, and while it may be too soon to say how strong of a contender the film will be in the major categories, I can’t imagine it not being a major player for the Costume Design and Art Direction awards, at the very least. Let’s hope this is more Moulin Rouge! Luhrmann than it is Australia Luhrmann. I’ve kinda got a bad feeling about it, I don’t know. We’ll find out on Christmas Day.
