The mystery surrounding the character of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) is front and centre in the second, just-released trailer for The Great Gatsby. He reveals more of himself to new friend Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) — "God’s truth about myself," as he calls it — sharing details about his privileged upbringing and status as a decorated war hero, leaving Carraway to wonder, "Could it all be true?"
It’s great to finally see more of Gatsby’s complicated character — we also get our first glimpse of Callan McAuliffe as the younger version — as the film, like the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel it’s based on, revolves around his relationships and actions, particularly with former lover Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). The party scenes are still glitzy but there’s more of a sense of the consequences that surround Gatsby as his secrets begin to unravel, with more screen time for Daisy’s husband Tom (Joel Edgerton) and his mistress, Myrtle (Isla Fisher). The Great Gatsby is released in Australia on May 30 and you can watch the new trailer after the break.
