It’s been a busy week for trailer fans: the 23rd James Bond film, the Anchorman sequel, Bill Murray as FDR, and now, at long last, the highly anticipated Baz Luhrmann adaptation of “The Great Gatsby.”
Leonardo DiCaprio looks as good as ever as the eponymous eccentric millionaire. Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and Carey Mulligan as Daisy seem to be inspired choices. And apparently auto-tuned pop music was all the rage in the Jazz Age of the roaring 1920s in New York.
Casting and music aren’t the issues here — the real controversy surrounding this remake is Luhrmann’s choice to go 3D with it. F. Scott Fitzgerald and Real 3D go together, right?
Ultimately, here’s he answer to the 3D question: This isn’t 3D for the sake of action like Avatar. Luhrmann envisions the technology as a tool to create intimacy to “help audience members feel like they’re in the room with the characters,” New York‘s Maragaret Lyons wrote. Makes total sense.
The Great Gatsby and its wild 3D parties hit theaters in December.
