Baz Luhrmann has created some incredible visuals for his 3D, CG-enhanced retelling of The Great Gatsby, but that’s hardly unexpected. What remains to be seen is how well it operates as drama. You may pick up on some clues to that end in this first trailer for the film, but just clues. Will the performances gel? How well will it be paced? Will Luhrmann have found the perfect cinematic beats to translate Fitzgerald to a very different medium?
None of that’s beyond him, when he’s on his game. And either way, it’s certainly going to look quite striking, so I’m signed up on that front alone. In the meantime, I’m going to try and find a cinema showing this trailer in the original 3D.
See that in HD at Apple. The HDer it gets, the more Speed Racer-y the car shots look.
