Despite any reservations our tenth-grade American Literature teacher may have, The Great Gatsby's second trailer has arrived, and this one is just as big, seductive, and filled with Pixy Stix technicolor goodness as the first one. Baz Lurhmann, who specializes in that exact moment where intensity turns into freneticism, has demonstrated his no-holds-barred approach to the Fitzgerald classic, with can-can dancers, classic Rolls-Royces zooming around at high speeds, and a roiling, anachronistic soundtrack (a Lurhmann trademark).

Needless to say, we'll see you in theaters when The Great Gatsby opens on May 10, 2013.
