Seal crack between brick wall and drywall

I have a brick wall (chimney) that has been plastered and painted. After the fluctuations of the temp in the summer/winter, the drywall is pulling away from the brick wall and there is a slight crack. I have attached a few pictures.

Would some caulking be more effective? Big Stretch?
OR
Would Plasterboard Tape, and joint compound work best?

Thanks all in advance!

Most any decent siliconized acrylic caulk should do fine. You should remove the failing caulk first.
