By and large, I’m fully behind the eclectic style Baz Luhrmann brings to his lavish productions, ranging from his elaborately detailed sets to larger than life characters to his varied, pop music soundtracks. But when Fergie gets involved, it’s time to take a step back. After debuting her full (overproduced) song alongside Q-Tip and GoonRock titled A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got), we’ve now got a new trailer that makes full use of it.
Thankfully, some other music in the film is sounding better to our ears, as we’ve all got a soundtrack preview that includes everything but the Jay-Z single, as well as Beyoncé and André 3000‘s cover of Amy Winehouse‘s Back to Black, heard in an earlier trailer. Landing in just a few weeks, check out the new trailer, soundtrack preview (with markers for where to listen to the songs) and first full track below for the film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton.
