A second look at Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby is finally here. As the second trailer is released, I cannot help but think that this is one of the most highly anticipated films for 2013. Starring Carey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, to name but a few, this is a remake that has been met with both great criticism and equal enthusiasm from around the globe. The question I hear most frequently, and the one that always comes to my mind first, involves the “true-ness” to the original scene set in the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. For those of you that have seen Baz Luhrmann’s interpretation of Romeo & Juliet, you will understand my reserved feelings for a classic tale. That being said, I’m all for re-introducing a new generation to old classics.
So until May 2013, let’s just take in the fantastic scenes put together in the trailers and wait for the big reveal. And speaking of big reveals… I do think what I’ll be looking forward to most is seeing the Tiffany & Co. jewelry and Prada’s costumes!
