'The Great Gatsby' trailer features new plot points, music(Read article summary)
'The Great Gatsby' is directed by Baz Luhrmann and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character. 'The Great Gatsby' is scheduled for a May 10 release.
Actor Joel Edgerton, who plays Tom Buchanan, husband of Daisy (Carey Mulligan), got more of a showcase in the new series of clips, especially at the beginning of the trailer. The trailer starts with Tom questioning the identity of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio).
âMr. Gatsby,â Edgerton says, âIâd like to know, exactly who are you, anyhow? Canât you see who this guy is?â he asks his wife. âHis house, his parties, his fancy clothes.â He then addresses Gatsby. âWe were born different from you. Itâs in our blood. Nothing that you do or dream up could ever change that.â
Gatsby snaps and yells, âShut up!â
The new trailer also includes more voiceover from Tobey Maguire, who portrays the bookâs narrator, Nick Carraway.
âI had the uneasy feeling that he was guarding secrets,â Maguire says of Gatsby at one point.
Glimpsed briefly in the trailer are a few pivotal moments in the story, including what looks like Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher) being hit by a car and what appears to be George Wilson (Jason Clarke) with a gun.Â
The new trailer features several songs, including âYoung & Beautifulâ by Lana Del Rey, artists Andre 3000 and Beyonce (whose husband Jay-Z is scoring the film) covering the Amy Winehouse hit âBack to Black,â and a Florence + The Machine song titled âOver The Loveâ which includes references to âgreen lightâ (undoubtedly a reference to the dock light at the end of the Buchanan property which serves as a symbol of Daisy to Gatsby).Â
âThe Great Gatsbyâ was originally scheduled to come out this past December but is now slated for a May 10 release.
