‘The Great Gatsby’ Trailer: More Glitz, Glamour and Leonardo DiCaprio (VIDEO)
The trailer begins with DiCaprio, who stars as the titular social climber Jay Gatsby, telling Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) his life story. With a little help from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild,” it turns into quite the epic tale of money, power and war. Flash forward to the 1920s and Gatsby is the talk of West Egg — hosting extravagant parties, driving around in his yellow roadster and falling in love with a married woman, Daisy (Carey Mulligan).
But as any F. Scott Fitzgerald aficionado knows, pretty people have problems too.
By the time Florence + the Machine’s “Bedroom Hymns” starts to pound in the background, the trailer has taken on a dangerous tone — and for good reason. Gatsby’s natatorium isn’t exactly a happy place.
The Great Gatsby hits theaters on May 10, 2013. Watch the first trailer, below.
