‘The Great Gatsby’ set for May 10

Baz Luhrmann's 3D pic originally set for Christmas realease

Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures’ “The Great Gatsby” will open May 10 in the U.S. and Canada, with an international rollout beginning the following week.

Baz Luhrmann’s 3D adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, starring Leonard DiCaprio, had originally been set to open this Christmas but was yanked from the holiday slot in early August to an unspecified date for next year. Pic was the sixth that WB moved off the 2012 calendar, following “Gravity,” “Man of Steel,” “Jack the Giant Killer,” “Bullet to the Head” and, most recently, “Gangster Squad.”

WB execs said “Gatsby,” which also stars Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton, has a tentpole sensibility, and the shift was made to take advantage of summer crowds. The move out of Christmas also precluded a head-to-head confrontation with the Weinstein Co.’s “Django Unchained,” which also stars DiCaprio.

“Gatsby” will open against Universal’s time travel comedy-drama “About Time” and Lionsgate’s “Tyler Perry Presents We the Peeples.”
