The Great Gatsby's epic new trailer (+vid)

A new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's $127 million 3D adaptation of The Great Gatsby has been released.

It boasts new music from Beyonce and Andre 3000 singing her cover of the late Amy Winehouse's Back to Black, as well as Lana Del Rey's Will You Still Love Me and Florence + The Machine's Over the Love.

Alongside the soaring music, the trailer elaborates on what we've already seen, featuring the same extravagant roaring '20s-style parties, but showing more of the darker elements of F Scott Fitzgerald's classic story.

From the look of it, The Great Gatsby could achieve what Romeo + Juliet did so well, by successfully bringing a contemporary feel to an iconic tale. And making it look absolutely gorgeous in the process.

Aussie Joel Edgerton is featured more than ever this time around, giving us another glimpse of his jealous Tom Buchanan, while there's also a blink-you-miss-it shot of Queenslander Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and a nasty car accident.

As with the other trailers, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby are shown throughout, along with Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway.

Visually it's stunning and with a cast like that, the odds are in The Great Gatsby's favour.
