One of the more anticipated films this year is Baz Luhrmann’s re-imagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic, The Great Gatsby. Aside from its A-list cast of Leonard DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, it also sports a star-studded soundtrack featuring Florence and the Machine, Jack White, and Jay-Z. (Hear Flo’s track “Over the Love” right now.) So for today’s Rock it Out! Blog, Sami wants to know if a soundtrack alone can sway you into seeing a film.
Think back to the golden soundtracks of yesteryear(s): 1978’s Grease, 1982’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High, 1993’s The Crow, and/or 2004’s Garden State. Have you ever seen their movies? In theaters? Let us know by leaving your comments down below.
