The release date for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo Di Caprio, has been pushed back by six months.
Shot in 3D, the film, which is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's much-loved novel about the Roaring Twenties, was meant to be released this Christmas, but will now not reach screens until summer 2013. It stars Di Caprio as the main character, the mysterious millionaire Gatsby, as well as Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.
Dan Fellman, speaking on behalf of Warner Bros, announced the move, saying: "Based on what we've seen, Baz Luhrmann's incredible work is all we anticipated and so much more. It truly brings Fitzgerald's American classic to life in a completely immersive, visually stunning and exiting way. We think moviegoers of all ages are going to embrace it, and it makes sense to ensure this unique film reaches the largest audience possible."
The Great Gatsby has been adapted for film many times before, with the most famous version being Jack Clayton's 1974 offering, in which Robert Redford took on the lead role of Jay Gatsby, with a script written by Francis Ford Coppola.
Delaying the new version by half a year is certainly an odd move. But still, based on this trailer we think it's probably worth waiting for.
