With Jay-Z and Kanye's "No Church in the Wild" plus Jack White serving as the soundtrack, we see Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Leonardo DiCaprio starring as the man himself, Jay Gatsby.
Carey Mulligan's Daisy tells Gatsby, "You always look so cool," and indeed DiCaprio does, appearing elegant throughout the two-and-a-half minute clip.
That could also apply to the city itself, as we're told that in the New York of 1922, "the buildings were higher, the parties were bigger, the moons were looser and the liquor was cheaper. The restlessness approached hysteria."
Judging from the parties depicted in the trailer, hysteria can be an awfully good time. "The Great Gatsby" arrives in theaters December 25.
