I before E except after . . . Z?

The trailer for the new Baz Luhrmann film of The Great Gatsby includes a big typo—literally, a big one.

Of course, these days, any suspect sign might have been Photoshopped for laughs, but not in this case. The movie’s official trailer shows the typo, big as life, about 13 seconds in, and again at the 1:41 mark.

If they don’t fix the mistake before the film’s release this Christmas, they can always say the sign is a clue that the movie takes place in an alternate universe, like they did with “Manhatan” on the TV show Fringe.
