The Great Gatsby Is So Great, Warner Bros. Is Pushing The Release Date Back To Summer!

Great Gatsby release date pushed back until summer

Or the studio is afraid of the Christmas box office competition which includes films like Django Unchained, This Is 40, Les Miserables, Zero Dark Thirty and Jack Reacher.

Either way, fans of Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire will be disappointed that they have to wait another six months or so to see Baz Luhrmann's 3D interpretation of The Great Gatsby.

Warner Bros.' President of International Distribution explained the studio's decision in a statement reading:

"The responses we’ve had to some of the early sneak peeks have been phenomenal, and we think The Great Gatsby will be the perfect summer movie around the world."

We loved the trailer, the stills and pretty much everything about the remake so far. So yes, we agree with their reasoning, but we're a little bummed we'll have to wait longer to see this than we originally anticipated.

Looking at the bright side, at least the delayed release gives folks six more months to read the book! We know some of U used CliffsNotes in high school. Ha!

    It will be interesting to see if it is as good as the book.

    They're moving it from awards season to blockbuster season? That means it must be pretty bad. I've never heard of a movie with potential for awards being moved to the summer.

    Loved the book and was looking forward to the movie, but not sure if I would go see it in 3D since that gives me a headache a lot of the time.

    Of those Xmas releases, the only one I might be interested in is Les Miz.

    He's not good looking enough to play Gatsby, nor is he deep or intelligent enough! See the original, can be outdone!

    There was also a little independent film called THE HOBBIT premiering that same December week, too. I think this is a good move on Warner Bros. part. I just wish either The Hobbit or Les Miserables would move a week or two to give both some breathing room. Both should be excellent.
