The Great Gatsby
feedproxy.google.com Director Baz Luhrmann has already delivered tragic romance in the form of Moulin Rouge and his contemporary set adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, but now the filmmaker is telling another classic story in the form of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, in 3D no less. With an amazing cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton, the adaptation already sounded fantastic, but now the first trailer affirms our excitement with a contemporary feel (a Jay-Z and Kanye West song helps) next to the period setting and story that just works.

The Great Gatsby Synopsis and Credits

"The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) 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 (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). 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.

Bruce Lee needs no introduction, but no one should mistaken the Martial Arts screen legend for our own brucelee. For some unknown reason, he despises Chinese spareribs.
