The latest trailer for Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby makes it look like a technicolor booze-fueled crime thriller. Which… well, I’m kind of OK with that. It’s a Baz Luhrmann movie. No one expects to see a 100% faithful adaptation. I’m still not sold on Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, and though I realize it’s completely unfair my instinctual reaction to Tobey Maguire starring in a movie is to wince. It takes a long time to wash away the mental trauma of Spider-Man 3, OK?
If I’m being honest, I’ll probably see it. Because Joel Edgerton. Not that I need to justify myself to anyone!
