Man. Music is a helluva drug. Baz Lurhmann‘s The Great Gatsby adaptation may have been pushed back, but that just gives us more time to get excited about it all. We learned a while back that music (like that of Kanye West‘s) was a huge part of the filming process on the set of this movie, and we also heard that Prince and Lady Gaga might be writing new music for the soundtrack. The first trailer for The Great Gatsby was released back in May, and just as the music moved that piece, so it moves this one. I know as a former Lit major, I should have more reservations about this adaptation, but I love the movies! And this looks like a friggen MOVIE! Lol. I just mean that the trailer (with all the drama, fashion, and extravagance) is an experience in and of itself, so I’m looking forward to seeing the whole flick. Peep the trailer for more! There’s tons of new footage, more No Church In The Wild, and more Amitabh Bachchan (who PITNBR Ria told us is kind of a big deal). Are you into it?
