‘The Great Gatsby’ trailer has not-so-great typo

Sometimes spell-checker just isn't enough, old sport.

In the new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," there's a pretty epic typo. A quick shot of Times Square in New York reveals a billboard for the Broadway review of "Zeigfeld Follies." The problem? It's actually "Ziegfeld Follies." D'oh!

We first saw the find over at the U.K.'s Daily Mail. The misspelled word is onscreen for only a moment, but that didn't stop Twitter users from calling out the film for mucking up the name of such an entertainment classic.

The Ziegfeld Follies were a series of lavish Broadway productions. A bit like variety programs, the Follies (as they were known) were adapted into a 1936 film starring William Powell and Myrna Loy. The Broadway productions were particularly known for the lovely Ziegfeld girls.

One user posts, "In the Time Square sequence, the Ziegfeld Follies on a billboard is written 'Zeigfeld Follies.' Awks." Another writes, "The only feelings I have about The Great Gatsby trailer: it'd be nice if 'Ziegfeld Follies' weren't misspelled ('Zeigfeld') on a CGI sign."

Epic parties, fast cars, Leonardo DiCaprio's steamy glare. There is so much going on in the trailer, it is understandable how the misspelling might have slipped through.  And, considering that the film won't hit theaters until December, there's time for the filmmakers to fix it in CGI. It's what Gatsby would have wanted, right?
