The Great Gatsby

Now whether you enjoy the classic version or cannot wait for the new release most people are looking forward to seeing Baz Luhrmann’s new movie, staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Muligan among many others The Great Gatsby is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel that charts the friendship of Nick Carraway and Jay Gatsby as they enjoy the lavish lifestyle of the nouveau riche, but Carraway starts to see there is more to Gatsby than meets the eye.

However this is not the first Gatsby movie, there have actually been five versions of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s book 1926, 1949, 1974, 2000 and this one, but the most iconic to date was the 1974 version starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow with some saying that it could never be topped, but to quote the tagline for Luhrmann’s version ” Can’t repeat the past? …of course you can!”

However you feel about it you should definitely check out the soundtrack it got some brilliant music on there, I’ve linked the soundcloud and the trailer (which looks as outlandish as Luhrmann usually us) for you to check out so let us know what you think it’ll be like!
