Well, you gotta admit, Baz Luhrmann has a pretty big pair of brass ones when it comes to "The Great Gatsby." With a soundtrack dressing up the classic American novel with songs by will.i.am, Fergie, Lana Del Rey, Jay-Z and The xx, he's certainly taking F. Scott Fitzgerald's book out of the classroom and into...somewhere else. And with 3D visuals, lavish set design and, oh yeah, an all star cast, it's go big or go home. And now a few more treats are here to bring you into Luhrmann's world.

Well, you gotta admit, Baz Luhrmann has a pretty big pair of brass ones when it comes to "The Great Gatsby." With a soundtrack dressing up the classic American novel with songs by will.i.am, Fergie, Lana Del Rey, Jay-Z and The xx, he's certainly taking F. Scott Fitzgerald's book out of the classroom and into...somewhere else. And with 3D visuals, lavish set design and, oh yeah, an all star cast, it's go big or go home. And now a few more treats are here to bring you into Luhrmann's world.

A U.K. trailer has dropped for the movie, and while it features some bits of new footage, it mostly serves as a reminder of the scale of this thing. Hell, you could probably make a few more "Scary Movie" comedies with the budget spent on glitter and gold leaf alone. There won't be any moment in this effort that isn't coming for your ears and eyes at full blast, but really, this is Luhrmann so it really shouldn't be too much of a shock. And after you're done getting another taste of the movie, four new posters are here giving us closer looks at the principal cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton (and way in the background, Isla Fisher).

"The Great Gatsby" arrives on May 10th and opens The Cannes Festival on May 15th. [HeyUGuys/RecentMoviePosters/ComingSoon]
