Watch 'The Great Gatsby' Trailer: What Do You Think?

The Great Gatsby

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Baz Luhrmann's remake of "The Great Gatsby," out this Christmas.

Remakes and books made into movies aren't typically high on my list of favorite films. The upcoming version of The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann, however, is both, but I can't wait to see it — especially after seeing the trailer that was just released.

In short, it looks AMAZING. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby; Carey Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan; and Tobey Maguire is Nick Carraway. The cast alone is incredible, but then you add in the music (Kanye West and Jay-Z and U2 might seem odd choices, but they work), the costumes, and the whole feel of the era, and the book appears to be coming to life — albeit with a definite twist. See for yourself after the jump.
