The Kidd here...
If you were looking forward to checking out Baz Luhrmann's take on THE GREAT GATSBY this holiday season, you're just going to have to wait a little longer... at least another six months. Warner Bros. has announced that it's shifting the 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel from its original December 25 release date to sometime in the summer of 2013, with an exact date not yet set.
Hmmm... it's already got 3D going for it, so clearly this must be to add some more Channing Tatum.
THE GREAT GATSBY doesn't exactly strike me as a summer movie, but Warner Bros. must be hoping the visual style of Luhrmann for the film and the cast must be enough to carry it for adult audiences looking for something without giant explosions and massive special effects during those months. Plus, the idea of competing with another DiCaprio film during the holidays - DJANGO UNCHAINED - can only hurt both pictures.
Adjust your calendars as such moving forward.
