So the last thing you expect to hear when the trailer for The Great Gatsby starts is some Jay Z, followed by a little Jack White. But hey, we knew this adaptation of the literary classic was going to be a little different. It's in 3D for one thing. And it's from King of Kitsch Baz Luhrmann for another. Take a look.

MTV has some interesting thoughts on the unconventional track choices:

Jay and Kanye touch on status symbols, criminality, partying, and money in the Frank Ocean-featuring track, all of which factor into F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel. The 21st century lyrics, about the declining American Dream, closely parallel the excesses of the Roaring '20s.

Notable Lyrics
"Rolling in the Rolls-Royce Corniche": Gatsby's yellow Rolls convertible is a key symbol in the story.

"Socrates asked,' Whose bias do y'all seek?' ": "The Great Gatsby" paints a picture of a man who did everything to gain respect and notice with the help of status symbols and wealth. Gatsby was constantly seeking approval in all the wrong places.

"Let me buy you desire": Gatsby, very literally, tried to purchase the desire of the upper class and his long lost love, to no avail.

"I'm hidin' from police": The film is set during the crime-filled Prohibition era and it's inferred in the story that Gatsby amassed his fortune as a bootlegger.

There's more about the Jack White cover of 'Love is Blindness' over there too.

So what do you think? Does it look as though the required reading has made a good transition to the silver screen this time around? The sets and costuming are as lavish, if not more so, than expected, and some of the effects shots signal a potentially engaging 3D experience...
