Ugh.

Aside from the fact that Gatsby has proven to be just about unfilmable up to this point, there are very few directors who are less suited to the task than Baz 'I shit rainbows' Lurmann. The entire tone of the trailer is wrong. And it's in 3D.

This is going to be a massive shit sandwich. Hollywood needs to leave classic novels alone.

Gatsby doesn't seem too unfilmable, but that certainly looks unwatchable.

I agree with Nieto's assessment but it looks like it could be good and may be willing to go see it in Theaters. Though the 3D part is mind boggling why.

I'm glad I'm not the only one worried about the feel of the trailer. It's too shiny, if that makes sense. Plus, I know it's just a trailer but a kanye song? Really?

That's exactly what I thought. Way too shiny.

Why the Tobey hate? He's a goofy looking dude who is perpetually awkward looking, but I think he is a decent actor.

I think I disagree, he just needs the right parts. And I think Nick is a perfect part for him, a passive follower.
