The new trailer of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby featuring Leonardo Di Caprio and Carey Mulligan is out. One of the interesting things about the sequence is Beyonce's voice for Amy Winehouse's number Back to Black which plays in the background.
Jay Z has produced the sountrack and the film will also see music by Florence and the Machine, Lana Del Rey and Jack White.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will also be debuting in this international project. The film is in its post-production stage and the actor says it will be out by May this year.
Bachchan plays Meyer Wolfsheim, a man with a dark past, who helps the film’s lead Leonardo DiCaprio’s character make money when he first comes to New York after the First World War. The much-anticipated film is an adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel and also stars Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.
