*I'm not sure why this is all wonky-sized but I'm not good with the HTML so wonky it stays. You can watch it on regular YouTube if you want.
So, the trailer's finally here. And you know what? I HATE IT. I'm using the word hate to describe my feelings for a movie trailer. Let's start with the music...I'm sorry, is that T-PAIN? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? This is the JAZZ AGE. It comes with its VERY OWN MUSIC. MUSIC THAT IS GOOD AND YES I AM YELLING NOW.
And ok, it's Baz Luhrmann. So I was expecting a little Moulin Rouge- but Moulin Rouge still managed to be elegant. This does not look elegant. This looks like a frat party with better haircuts. Now, Carey Mulligan looks like she does an excellent job and I'm sure Leo's Very Brooding Gatsby will be interesting but I can't STAND this cinematography. It's taken one of the most subtly heartbreaking books and turned it into a LOOK AT ALL THIS JAZZ AND PARTIES AND BOB HAIRCUTS AND SPARKLY THINGS AND DON'T YOU LOVE THIS MOVIE PLEASE LOVE THIS MOVIE!
I get that it's just the trailer. I'll probably still go see it? But this is my favorite book of all time all time all time and I went from cautiously excited when the poster came out to very, very irritated now.
What do you guys think of the trailer? Did Baz ruinz it?
ETA: Twitter has informed me that the awful opening music is Kanye, not T-Pain.
