Welcome to 1920s New York. Your host for the evening, none other than the great Gatsby.

A new trailer is out for Baz Lurhmann’s new film, The Great Gatsby, based on the great American novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This trailer is an audio-visual onslaught in a style typical of the vivacious nature of Lurhmann’s work (see Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet to get an idea), but what’s really eye-catching here is the opulence of the film: the sharp suits, the flapper dresses, the diamonds, the parties on a truly epic scale, and the zebra in the fountain.

Carey Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan, and gets to wear some very pretty dresses.
