It is going to be one of "those" movies. I'll pass.

After the odd (and terrible) choice of music for the trailer, I was hoping the score to the movie would have a different feel. Sounds like it won't. If I hear Jay Z's annoying voice one time during this movie, I am walking out.

Not pleased with the idea, but I hope it turns out well.

I'm stoked on it. Or intrigued, to say the least.

An American Gangster sound paired with relevant lyricism would work great with the setting, I think.
Yeah, a hip-hop soundtrack paired with a classic piece of literature set in the 1920's will totally work well.

I'm a huge Jay-Z fan but Baz Luhrman is going to fuck up this movie so bad. This should have been an Oscar contender but instead we are going to get a CGI fest that is catered towards 15 year olds that consider Tim Burton to be the greatest director of all time.

I'm expecting it to have a jazzy '20s feel anyway, just with hip-hop rhythms. I'll call it, this will be great.

I wonder if this is why they pushed the movie back so much; It was supposed to come out Christmas day, not its set for sometime in may.
I doubt this is the reason. They said they moved it back because of the production schedule. I really think they planned to release it in Oscar season for obvious reasons and then realized it's going to end up being more of a summer movie.

This just lowered my already relatively low expectations for this movie. I cannot stand Tobey Maguire.

My thoughts too. Plus I'm not too surprised by this decision, Baz is a huge fan of anachronisms (look at Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge) so it ultimately might work. Have to wait and see I guess.
