How did Baz Luhrmann use 3D for "The Great Gatsby"?

If the latest trailer is any indication, the parties, showgirls and dancing will be bigger and badder than ever.

After a brief sampling of Jay-Z and Kanye West's "No Church in the Wild," the clip teases extravagant 1920s fêtes as a voice narrates, "the parties were bigger, the morals were loose and the liquor was cheaper." Hundreds of extras dressed to the gills and a few palatial estates serve as a backdrop for this era of decadence and extravagance.

Of course the parties are just a veneer, hiding a society torn between old money and new, where "restlessness approached hysteria."

Enter Leonardo DiCaprio as the eponymous protagonist from F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, whose presence begs one question: Who is this Gatsby?

Here's the trailer:
