In this new trailer from The Great Gatsby, we get to see a lot more of Jay Gatsby’s back story from the war to his family’s history. And yes, a lot more of Leonardo DiCaprio. Of course there are more party scenes, as well as, several establishing shots that weren’t present in the previous trailer. Most notably the green light coming from Gatsby’s house across the bay in East Egg.
The first time I saw the first trailer, I was a bit put off by the contemporary music being used, but with this one I can feel the mood of it differently. The music sets a tone that makes the period iconography a bit more modern even if it is set almost a century ago.
The trailer ends with Gatsby saying: “You can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can.”
What did you think of this new trailer? I cannot wait to get my butt in the theater to see this movie!
