The first trailer for director Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby has gone online.  While I’m not the biggest fan of the source material, I do happen to be a fan of Luhrmann’s.  Having this phenomenal cast lined up for the production doesn’t hurt either and this new trailer gives us a glimpse at each of them in turn.  There are no 3D effects on display as of yet, but the first trailer highlights all of the bravura, hyperbole and flair we’ve come to expect from the Moulin Rouge! director.  While I was a little put off by the choice of music for the trailer, I’ve got faith that the soundtrack will be exemplary as always.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke and Isla FisherThe Great Gatsby opens in 3D on December 25th. [Update: We’ve now added the teaser poster, which you can find after the jump.]

Official synopsis:

The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
