It’s DiCaprio Vs. DiCaprio On Christmas Day 2012 As ‘Great Gatsby’ Gets A Release Date

Christmas 2012 just got a whole lot more interesting.

With Leonardo DiCaprio set to see the release of his Quentin Tarantino-directed slave picture, Django Unchained on Christmas Day next year, Box Office Mojo has revealed that another DiCaprio film has set the day as its debut date. The outlet reports that the actor’s turn as Jay Gatsby in Baz Luhrmann‘s long gestating take on the F. Scott Fitzgerald story, The Great Gatsby will premiere on that date as well. Talk about a hunky way to spend Christmas.

Joking aside, the film co-stars Isla Fisher, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, and joins films like Life Of Pi and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in what should be a December to never forget.

I am an absolutely huge Luhrmann fan, and this cast is beyond reproach. The expectations are huge for this picture, so with a big date set, things appear to be living up to it.

What do you think?

  1. 2012 can’t get here soon enough!!!!!

    Though, as much as I love Baz Luhrmann, and as much as I’m a huge book nerd, I’m honestly hesitant for Gatsby.  I never understood why it’s considered a classic.  I don’t hate the book or anything, but to me, it’s just about two selfish yuppies not caring about who they hurt as they boink each other.  Oh well.  It’s still DiCaprio, so I’ll be on board!
