Any venture of Baz Luhrmann’s is a full sensory affair, from audio to visuals. His work is also, generally, some exercise in taking something old and giving it cultural relevance to a new audience. I won’t write too much or too volubly about how Luhrmann’s biggest successes are the films that do this via music and costuming, or about how that all fits with a potential upswing in flapper fashion: I did that when the first Gatsby trailer came out.

Instead here’s further proof – if not that that film will be any good, which we can’t as yet say – that Luhrmann at least knows how to tap into cultural relevance. A new, lengthy trailer for the film incorporates music by Beyonce (covering Amy Winehouse no less), Lana Del Rey, Andre 3000, and Florence & The Machine. That ought to catch the attention of a few pop music fans.

Watch the trailer after the break.
