Baz Luhrmann's Latest Gatsby Trailer Will Blind You Until All You Can See Are Green Lights

By Joanna Robinson | Trailers | April 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel has already been beset by problems. It was supposed to open last winter, and early images and trailers left many wondering if Luhrmann had sacrificed all the meditative melancholy of Fitzgerald's story of one man and his unrealistic notions of the American Dream for the flash bang wallop of a Jay-Z music video. So let me tell you this: I know I'm supposed to hate this new trailer and I emphatically don't. I'm a book snob and a Gatsby snob but christalmighty this looks good. I can't swear to what the final product will be. Who knows if Luhrmann has included enough actual story to hang all of the pretty pretty shots on, but I am ferociously excited to find out. Fans of the book or earlier film adaptations will get a kick out of the many familiar (and iconic) images. My personal favorite? Poor Myrtle. That sequence looks fantastic. Enjoy!

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
