'Great Gatsby' Bumped to Summer as Great American Novel Movies Become the New Comic Book Movies


Originally scheduled for a Christmas release that would set star Leonardo DiCaprio's many pensive and knowing glares up for some awards, Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby adaptation has now been tossed amid the blockbusters of summer 2013.

Of the move, Warner Bros. Pictures' Dan Fellman said in a statement that the movie "makes sense to ensure this unique film reaches the largest audience possible." As for why that "makes sense," it probably has something to do with Django Unchained, which is also scheduled to release its greasy-haired DiCaprio into theaters on Christmas Day. Or maybe, in Luhrmann's version, Gatsby goes to the midwest to commit deplorable hate crimes? Either way: bad timing.
