The trailer of Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' THE GREAT GATSBY, the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel from the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann launches early morning tomorrow. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before.

Big B plays a character of Meyer Wolfsheim, a Jewish money lender in the film. It is Bachchan's maiden Hollywood outing and while he makes a friendly appearance in the film, he is prominently visible in the trailer.

Big posted on his blog, ''So finally we hear from Warner Bros., about the publicity for 'The Great Gatsby'. They say it should start with some still photographs in the Indian media and from LA in a couple of days. Does that mean that the film release is being looked at for the end of year? I wonder! Starting early!''

Adds Big B further, ''And before you all start punching me for my minuscule participation in the film, may I just say that it was more out of a friendly gesture, than a desire towards furthering my career. And it is a bit co incidental that just yesterday we spoke of Leonardo di and Tobey ji and here we are coming to learn through their mail to me that its all beginning !!!''
