Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for director Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. Luhrmann has a style all his own, and it shows through in this trailer. Fans of his past work, Strictly Ballroom, Romeo & Juliet, and Moulin Rouge will be delighted to see his flamboyant style and huge set pieces. Not too mention that Leonardo DiCaprio’s portrayal of the titular “Great” one looks amazing, not that DiCaprio has ever let us down. This film is shaping up to be much better on screen than anticipated when then movie was first announced.

The film also stars Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, and Adelaide Clemens. The Great Gatsby opens in 3D on May 10th.

Official synopsis for The Great Gatsby:

“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
