I have no idea what this movie is about based on that trailer… I read this book in high school and I plan on re-reading it before I see the movie. All I got from that trailer is the Leo is playing a character with a lot of money and Carey Mulligan is interested in him. I remember Gatsby and Nick Carraway and the lavish parties but this trailer did nothing to spark any specific memories from the plot. All that being said, that was still a fantastic trailer.
Typical Hollywood with great visuals, quick cuts and exotic 1920’s costumes to draw someone in. I’m assuming since this is such an established book and this isn’t the 1st film adaptation that the trailer-makers felt they didn’t need to give any away any plot points. Fine by me, I can’t wait to see this movie.
