Making a movie based off such an iconic American novel is a challenging and ambitious endeavor. Especially if a movie was already made 30 some years earlier and received glowing reviews. This 2012 remake had to sport a great cast. Carey Mulligan, Toby Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio all signed up for the task, and appear to be perfectly casted. Judging from the trailer, it looks like these Hollywood heavyweights have delivered. True, the Jay-Z, Kanye West, Jack White, and other modern music involved in the movie might not fit when contrasted with the “roaring 20’s” but, how good would Fred Astaire’s music be in these scenes in contrast? Sure, it might fit the setting a bit better, but who knows more about Gatsby’s way of life (faking it until you make it) than Jay-Z, the same man who named his record label after one of the wealthiest American families, The Rockefellers. Let’s face it, The Great Gatsby had to be modernized for modern audiences. From what we’ve seen via the trailer- All looks amazing. We can’t wait to check this one out in the theaters.
