Lurhmann's long-delayed project will finally screen from...
Thursday, May 30, 2013. Circle the day in your diary as that's when you can see Tobey Maguire as Nick Carroway, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role of The Great Gatsby.
Baz Luhrmann's newie, shot in 3D and based on the F Scott Fitzgerald novel, was originally slated to appear in cinemas before the end of 2012.
Holding it back till mid next year tells us one thing: Warner Bros and Village Roadshow consider it more of an "audience" picture than an "Oscar" picture.
(Time Out doesn't really care which it is, just so long as it doesn't suck. Fingers crossed, film-lovers.)
The Australian release will come shortly after the US release, allowing the cast to attend a local premiere event.
