I'm actually a big fan of the '74 version; it interprets the Gatsby novel on a realistic scale. This new trailer doesn't bother me at all (though I hope some authentic jazz is played in the actual movie); I like that it isn't a conventional retread; the '20s setting allows for the gratuitous excess, and the visuals on this film are stunning. I just hope the story and characters emerge from it.
