  Well if you were hoping for a DiCaprio double feature for Christmas, you will be sadly disappointed. “The Great Gatsby” featuring DiCaprio has been pushed back until summer 2013. Why exactly? The reason is because the competition for the Christmas movies is going to be especially fierce this year. Warner Bros has decided to push back so that all movies have a chance to be enjoyed. But do not fret movie goers you have the following to look forward to this December “Django” now has Christmas Day all on its own, with the Seth Rogen-Barbra Streisand comedy “The Guilt Trip” opening Christmas Eve. The week before that, the Tom Cruise thriller “Jack Reacher”, Judd Apatow’s comedy “This is 40” and Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama bin Laden drama “Zero Dark Thirty”, which just debuted a new trailer. Then just two weeks before that sees the release of both “The Hobbit” and “Les Miserables”.

It is safe to say that December will not disappoint movie wise, we will all just have to bite our nails until the summer for Gatsby. If you are new to “The Great Gatsby” it is based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald about per Warner Brothers Pictures, “The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.. The film was directed by  Baz Luhrmann who also directed Moulan Rouge.

Releasing the film in the summer means more will see it and the potential for more profits and as everyone knows that is what companies think of first and fore most. However with as selective as DiCaprio is about the rolls he plays it will likely be completely worth the wait to see this beloved novel played out on the big screen once more. It will also capture a new generation of high school kids that do not want to take the time to read the book, however I would highly recommend the book as well.
