The Kidd here...
After being pulled from the holiday release calendar in order to allow for some more time to complete post-production, Warner Bros. has reset THE GREAT GATSBY for a summer spot in 2013, planting the adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel on May 10. Internationally, THE GREAT GATSBY will then be rolled out the following week.
IRON MAN 3 is set to open the summer on May 3, and typically studios have run clear of the first blockbuster for at least two weeks, but with the only competition on the schedule being the romantic comedy ABOUT TIME and another Tyler Perry movie, clearly this is a spot where Warners thinks they can take advantage before the rest of the summer's big fare arrives.
