The Great Gatsby remake release pushed to Summer 2013


Leo can't be happy about this-he wants to win the Oscar in 2014 for Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street and so having both released in 2013 presents a conflict.

It's probably nothing to do with the Oscars. Who releases an Oscar film in the Summer? It's more likely to do with either reshoots or the 3D process. This one is filmed in 3D rather than post-conversion isn't it?

Leo was going to have two movies come out the same day (Gatsby and Django Unchained). I always thought one would move.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 208/06/2012

Am I the only one who thinks Django looks awful? Leo's channeling the villain from Wild Wild West.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 308/06/2012

Way to ruin a good book.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 408/06/2012

You aren't the only, r3. "Django Unchained" clearly demonstrates that Tarantino is running out of genres to"pay homage" to. Plus, Leo looks lousy in it. I can't believe that people think he will be getting an Oscar for it.

R4, It's survived a million other adaptations. I'm sure The Great Gatsby is far from cowering in the corner, bleeding and whimpering with it's dustjacket hanging off.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 608/06/2012

R4 - A good book, but not a great one. Gatsby is overrated.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 708/06/2012

R1, Inception was released in the summer. So were Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, Gladiator, Moulin Rouge, The Kids Are Alright, Moneyball and The Help.

Good enough list for you?

Fitzgerald's writing isn't particularly filmic. Lovely language, but not much in the way of plot and most of the characters are tolerable, at best. I think The Crack-Up is probably his best collection of stuff and you couldn't really film an inch of it.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 908/06/2012

Give it up, it's a shitty movie. I never got the hype. Of course, Redford wrecked it, such a cheese. Yuk yuk yuk

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1008/06/2012

I liked the one with Mira Sorvino.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1108/06/2012

Uhhh, bump.

"From the man who brought you "Australia"!

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1308/06/2012

But did anyone really think this sounded like a good idea ? It stunk in 1973, and this sounded just as bad.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1408/06/2012

Mia, your version was not released until 1975.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1508/06/2012

Both Wrong IMDB -1974

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1608/08/2012

I know someone who was in that version R11.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1708/08/2012

I agree with the other posters. The Great Gatsby with Redford and (a miscast) Mia Farrow wasn't a very good movie.

'The Great Gatsby' has been chosen to open the Cannes Film Festival this year.

From Variety:

"The 66th Cannes Film Festival will open May 15 with Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” playing out of competition in the official selection. The festival made the announcement early Tuesday.

"The Warner Bros. drama, the latest adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke. “Gatsby” was originally scheduled for release last Dec. 25, but the studio decided to avoid going head to head with another DiCaprio starrer, “Django Unchained,” and opted for a May 10 launch."

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 1903/14/2013

Ah, what the hell - I'll just print the rest of the (short) Variety news piece:

"Producers are Bazmark, Red Wagon and Village Roadshow. “Moonrise Kingdom” opened Cannes last year.

"“Gatsby” will be just the second film to screen in 3D at the festival after “Up” in 2009. It opens in France the day the festival starts.

"Luhrmann’s “Moulin Rouge!” opened the fest in 2001, while his “Strictly Ballroom” screened in Un Certain Regard in 1992."

Now, let the bitching begin...again.

Robert Redford WAS Gatsby. Leo can't lick his boots. This upcoming remake is a waste of celluloid.

by Lynn Stairmasterreply 2103/14/2013

This shitfest is out in a couple of weeks, I was shocked to see it on the cover of a cinema brochure. Not even buzz for it here.

Not that all the best films are released in Oscar season, not at all, but there must be big problems for this since it clearly was intended to be an awards grabber. Good, even more reason to avoid it. Fuck off with overly obvious remakes!

I thought he would give up trying...
