Warner Bros. has found a new release date for Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of "The Great Gatsby."
After pushing the film from this Christmas holiday, Warner Bros. will now open its 1920s-era epic on May 10, 2013, the start of the summer moviegoing season. (International rollout will begin the following week.)
The studio initially pushed back the release so Luhrmann could have more time to finish the special effects on the 3-D film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan. Also, the extra months will give Luhrmann time to put together a planned all-star soundtrack, a la his work on 2001's "Moulin Rouge," which featured high-profile tracks from artists like Christina Aguilera, Pink, Madonna and David Bowie.
(Luhrmann's interest in pairing contemporary recording artists with his period work is clear in the trailer, which features Jay-Z and Jack White.)
