Great Gatsby Release Date Pits DiCaprio Against Himself

Leonardo DiCaprio.

Christmas is going to come twice for Leonardo DiCaprio next year. Warner Bros. just announced that Baz Luhrmann's 3-D take on The Great Gatsby will be released on December 25, 2012, a date already staked out by Quentin Tarantino's revenge western Django Unchained, which will also star DiCaprio. If there's anyone who might be able to sympathize with the double-dip, it's DiCaprio's friend and Gatsby co-star Tobey Maguire: He's got the Ang Lee movie Life of Pi coming out just four days before on December 21. We may not know where the new Leos and Tobeys are right now, but come December 2012, the old ones will be inescapable. [Showblitz/Variety]
