It does seem promising. I've watched the old movie, it wasn't that good. Gatsby certainly seems to be played by a good actor, and from what I've seen his emotions seem convincing. Daisy however sounds worse, like she's in a play. She sounds and appears unconvincing. Gatsby? What Gatsby? Seriously? No emotion, not surprised or anything 0:36. Fucking terrible. Toby Mcguire seems a bit young for his part. I've always imagined him to appear older. Leonardo DiCaprio seems old enough now to fill his part. I also think Tom Buchanon looks pretty good for his part.

Still, seems pretty good. I wonder if they will try to portray the metaphors and motifs that are present in Fitzgeralds novel.

Caprio does seem to only get Noir roles, not complaining, he's amazing, but I think he's been type cast
