F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby has been widely acclaimed as one of the quintessential classic novels of American literature. As such, there have been numerous movie adaptations, the latest of which came in 1974, with a cast that featured Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Director Baz Luhrmann, however, chose to tackle a new adaptation of the novel as his next project, reuniting with his Moulin Rouge! co-writer Craig Pearce to take on screenwriting duties. The cast this time around has Leonardo DiCaprio taking on the role of Jay Gatsby, supported by Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, and Gemma Ward. A new trailer for the movie has now been released, and can be seen below.
