The Great Gatsby trailer

Anachronistic music, lavish visuals... Baz Luhrmann has really done a number on F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby." You either love Baz Luhrmann or you hate him, I'm kind of on the latter side. And really, using "No Church in the Wild" to open the trailer of the film... really? I'm kinda getting tired of anachronistic music in period films. Gangster Squad had it, now this. It's one thing when Quentin Tarantino does it like his use of David Bowie in "Inglourious Basterds." It's normally not a big deal to me, but come on, what is Baz doing with this novel? You know, the novel often cited as one of the "Great American novels" of all-time?

But it does look amazing, I'll give you that. Also, the poster looks pretty awesome.
