I absolutely love to read. The Great Gatsby was the first book that really awakened my passion for reading back in high school. Now, Baz Luhrmann is putting his signature style on the literary classic that depicts how far from greatness man can fall.

In my opinion, just judging by the trailer, the stars alined in this adaptation perfect. Baz and Leo have made magic before with Romeo + Juliet back in the 90's.

This trailer gives us a peek of the over the top costume and set design that is one of Baz's signatures. Also, the soundtrack looks promising as well. If you remember from my favorite Baz Luhrmann films Moulin Rouge! the soundtrack made that movie! Jack White and Jay Z with Kanye West have added their talents to the soundtrack of The Great Gatsby.

The Great Gatsby will hit theaters on December 25, 2012.
