Another quick The Great Gatsby update – a new international trailer to get a boost when stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan take the red carpet at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
Warner Bros. seems to be marketing it like a big tentpole movie and this short UK trailer puts the focus on the nature of Gatsby’s life.
Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Elizabeth Debicki, Jason Clarke and Amitabh Bachchan round out the cast of the Baz Luhrmann‘s much-anticipated 3D take on F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s romantic tale of the gilded jazz age that will open the 2013 Cannes Film Festival following its May 10th, 2013 domestic release.

The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
