Originally, the movie was to be released on Boxing Day 2012 but unfortuntely, the cinema release date was put back to mid 2013. However, just before Christmas, a new date was announced - 17th May 2013! And of course, with this news came a brand new trailer...

I am so excited for this! The costumes, make-up, settings all look absolutely beautiful!
The film is directed by Baz Lurhmann (the man behind 1996's 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Moulin Rouge') and there are rumours that Jay Z is working on the film's score - Baz certainly does know how to seamlessly combine different eras whilst creating such stunning masterpieces.
But for now, we just have to wait until 17th May... bring it on!
