The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald has always been one of my favorite books, I’ve read it several times and still find the story intriguing and beautifully written. There have been several movie interpretations of it over the years and now a new version, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio has hit the big screen. And, so far it is hitting big with an opening weekend of $51.1million and enormous attention across social media, so it was the natural choice for our Trend Tracker. 51% of Facebook and Twitter users talking about The Great Gatsby expressed excitement over the movie’s cast, costumes and over-the-top scenes, while 37% chatted about the movie’s soundtrack featuring Jay-Z and Lana del Rey, among others, 11% said they were not excited and 1% cracked jokes. Check out some of the jokes below!
