‘The Great Gatsby’ trailer: When Fitzgerald met ‘Moulin Rouge’

DiCaprio: A great Gatsby? (Frazer Harrison - GETTY IMAGES)
The first look at Baz Luhrmann’s much-buzzed-about adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” has arrived, and it’s filled with all the things one expects from a Luhrmann project.

The visuals are sumptuous. The music is completely out of synch with the time period. The stars — Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire — display high-intensity emotions. And depending on your feelings about Mr. Luhrmann, the approach either suggests that Luhrmann has engaged in F. Scott Fitzgerald blasphemy or that he’s returned to red curtain trilogy form.

As an enormous fan of his “Romeo + Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge,” I’m going with the latter. This looks sublime. Watch the clip below.
