The Great Gatsby: Glimpse Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan's epic love affair in new pictures and video


It is the most hotly anticipated movie of the summer. Now you can watch a newly released clip charting the epic love affair between The Great Gatsby's Jay (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan) ahead of the film's release next month.

Baz Luhrmann's screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks.

Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. 

Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
