The question is: how will the 3D film version of one of the world’s greatest literary works compare?

In the trailer a millionaire Jay Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is speeding around in a classic mustard Duisenberg through 1920s New York city, with Nick Carraway (played by Toby Maguire) in the passenger seat.

The scene cuts to bling parties, dancing girls, polo games against the soundtrack of Kanye and Jay-Z’s No Church In The Wild. Then the tone flips …

If this trailor is anything to go by we’re expecting great things from this Baz Luhrmann the director of Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge.
