See Amitabh Bachchan Acting with Leonardo Dicaprio

The first preview of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby has surfaced—two and a half minutes that look just as you may expect if you’re familiar with the often flashy Aussie filmmaker’s work on Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge, but that have somehow managed to shock the trailer-watching public in seemingly equal amounts of pleasure and dismay.

The frenetic, high-drama preview promises sweeping shots of Jay Gatsby’s West Egg soirées, immaculate set design, and period-perfect costumes—but also what appears to be a hyper-stylized, extended-music-video treatment of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s American classic.

The trailer opens to the Kanye West/Jay-Z collaboration “No Church in the Wild” against images of Jazz Age excess that could fit into any rap video: wealthy men and women clinking cocktails in speeding convertibles, free-flowing liquor, women swaying from chandeliers over pulsating party crowds, and ample sexual tension.

"The Great Gatsby" is Amitabh's debut Hollywood venture where the actor makes a friendly appearence. Though for a short while, the 69-year-old will share screen with Hollywood stars Leonardo and Tobey.

The first look of the film with Amitabh has been released and the actor looks dapper in a grey coloured suit teamed with a white hat. He looks classic as he sports a beard and moustache.

He feels the film will take viewers back in time.
