It wouldn’t be a Baz Luhrmann movie without some unexpected musical choices and in the latest trailer for his upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby, Warner Bros. is putting the original soundtrack at the forefront. Featuring new music from Beyoncé and André 3000, as well as Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine, this looks to be another pop-filled mash-up from the Moulin Rouge! helmer.
But the music isn’t everything, as we’re given a new peek at some of this luxurious world. Set to show at Cannes Film Festival, it looks to be the ideal glitzy, celebrity-filled offering to kick off the proceedings. But thankfully, everyone in the U.S. will be able to see it even sooner, on May 10th.

Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” follows would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
The Great Gatsby arrives on May 10th.
