A new trailer for director Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” showcased more of its music and showed a few pivotal events from the book’s plot. 

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).

“Mr. Gatsby,” Edgerton says, “I’d like to know, exactly who are you, anyhow? Can’t you see who this guy is?” he asks his wife. “His house, his parties, his fancy clothes.” He then addresses Gatsby. “We were born different from you. It’s in our blood. Nothing that you do or dream up could ever change that.”

Gatsby snaps and yells, “Shut up!”

The new trailer also includes more voiceover from Tobey Maguire, who portrays the book’s narrator, Nick Carraway.
