New Trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, Distributors Charge for Brad Pitt Interviews
The 1920s are roaring into view with this tantalising new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.
The film - about decadence and despair in the prosperous post-war years of East Coast America - appears to have the visual flair and avant-garde soundtrack we've come to expect of Moulin Rouge's Luhrmann - check the Jay-Z and Kanye track in the opening scene.
It also, of course, reunites the director with his Romeo, Leonardo di Caprio, as well as pairing him with one of our favourite bright young things, Carey Mulligan.
The Great Gatsby is released in the UK on 26 December 2012.
BRAD PITT - YOURS FOR JUST £100 A MINUTE
That's the amount that Canadian distributors Alliance Films are trying to charge journalists for an interview at Cannes with Brad - 20 minutes for nearly £2000.
Journalists are of course expressing their outrage at being asked to pay for what Alliance claims is the stars' expenses, as Brad's film Killing Them Softly premieres at Cannes today.
Other celebrities, including On the Road star Kristen Stewart, also come with a price tag - around £500 for a round-table interview.
“Alliance decided not to partake in the Cannes junkets for Killing Them Softly and On the Road, however we wanted to provide Canadian journalists the opportunity to participate directly if they so choose,” a company spokesperson told Deadline, the entertainment news website.
