Warner Bros has unveiled the trailer for "The Great Gatsby," which is based on the F Scott Fitzgerald novel and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton and Jason Clarke. Check it out below.
Plot: Nick Carraway (Maguire), a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio). He is drawn into Gatsby's circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.
The new movie is written and directed by Baz Luhrmann (Australia, Moulin Rouge, Romeo and Juliet), and is set to hit conventional and 3D theaters this Christmas (December 25th).
The f*ck is it with the Jay Z rap from Safe house trailer..
This movie is at the risk of ending being one of the worst films of all time, or it could actually be alright. Still love Robert redford from the orginal though... Leo doesn't have that class, and Tobey Midgetquire looks miscast.
Wow what a terrible trailer (that I had to watch on YouTube because this sh*tty player isn't working as usual). I was mildly interested in this film before, now my interest level is somewhere below zero. Tobey Maguire said one thing, I have no idea what sort of emotions the trailer was trying to make me feel except confusion and disappointment.
Trailer- Yeah I forgot to mention Carey Mulligan is f*cking sexy. That cute innocent look is right up my street. What is that Shame about then? I saw the movie poster spelled out with c*m so I assumed it had something to do with sex but ain't seen an advert for it.
Wasn't about much at all really, Fassbender is pretty much has a sex addiction living in NY and his sister (Carey) moves in with him (Which wasn't anywhere near as HOT as it could have been)and she kind of throws his life into a bit of a spin.
It was Fassbender that made the film his character had some real issues going on and his performance was very strong, especially the final 20 minutes or so.
First film i've seen from Steve McQueen too, Worth a look mate IMO
This movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan in a guest role - single scene they say, but who knows.
For those who came in late, Amitabh Bachchan is legend in India and quite a bit around the world. BBC's Actor of the Millennium beating the likes of Laurence Olivier, Charlie Chaplin and Alec Guinness..
Trailer- Ahh is it like an art housey sort of film then. I might have to check it out online. Yeah Fassbender is easily one of the best actors out there at the moment you can tell he puts 110% in to every role. Didn't know it was Steve Mcqueen, definitely worth checking out then cheers!
@Angrybird: No, his unfinished novel was "The Love of the Last" and it was published posthumously.
And how could I forget the lovely Carey Mulligan, silly me. Real Bristih cutie there and very talented as well. I'm sure she'll play perfectly Daisy's character. Better I hope than how Mia Farrow did originally.
@Trailer: which McQueen's film are you referring to?
About SHAME, that was more than bizarre. Besides being a sex addict and even have gay sex at some stage, the whole story was about a man who couldn't commit in a relationship because he was incapable of simply loving genuinely a woman? IMO, that was a useless story to tell. For you ladies, appart from his performance, I'm sure you'll enjoy Fassbender's big willy which is shown just for you obviously.
Pardon if you may, but I saw the film last week myself. Quite taken by it. Not the easiest film to watch, but it hasn't left me. I feel that's because it taps into a raw nerve. This addiction thing he goes through... It's gross and ugly in the most poignant ways, as it portrays something quite truthful about ourselves.
Also it hints at things in his past, vulnerabilities, some inner darkness they seem to leave out for what we choose to read into him. Breathing room for the character.
Point is... I think it's about more than your summation of it.
@Mongoloid dad: well, I didn't say much about it except...that it's a great novel. Now, I agree with your interpretation and I can also write endless lines about that novel.
To be honnest, I didn't read the book since I was in secondary shool but I do know that it's a tragic, love story about a great man who was maddly in love with a woman who actually didn't deserve him but that's human nature. What stroke me the most is Scott Fitzgerald's writing style, just superb, easy to read, to picture & comprehend the nature of the characters, the relations between them, the subtleness & sensitivity about Gatsby and many other things that makes a great novel by a great writer.
Anybody noticed that he 20's were the decade of true artists? Like Kandinsky and the Bauhaus, Picasso, Hemingway, Dali, Bugatti's brothers...and the 1st film with sound effect.
"But the scene you are talking about towards the end of the movie was a little random i must say wasn't expecting that at all !!"
Well, the end was disappointing, I mean it could have ended in a more positive way, but no, it leaves you with an unpleasant feeling, nasty selfish bloke leading the same life and without a sister that needed care & help. Not the kind of film to put you in a good mood.
And yeah, style over substance for sure. The damned trailer is nothing more than an incoherent train of visuals. What the f*ck is the story? Love? Rivalry? Tobey's latent homosexuality? Great colors, sure, great visuals, but is there a story? Anything genuine? Anyone to whom we might lend some sympathy? Probably not. Looks hollow and vapid like all of Baz's other films. A gilded, empty box.
Love the novel but as people have mentioned I am skeptical of Lurhmanns handling, the glamour and sheer decadance of gatsbys manor and parties are supposed to reflect a vaccuous soul of pointless conversation, drinking and music. Hard to tell from a trailer but it looks like the visuals are painting these affairs in a very positive fashion. Just hope he doesnt lose the essence of the charachters as he tends to do.
As for Shame I thought it was a great film however I am a big Fassbender and Mcqueen fan so I could be biased. I found the ending of the movie to not be wholey negative as Bullit was suggesting. Throughout the film he displays the detest of his lifestyle through actions but never really truly emotes, the end he is actuly trying to reach out to his sister and breaksdown conveying real emotion for the first time hopfuly managing to breakdown his innerwall and finnaly going to address his addiction.
