Bumped off its Oscar-worthy December 2012 release date earlier this year, while things appeared rocky for Baz Luhrmann's almost ludicrously ambitious 3D adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" a few months ago ("3D? For drama??" the conventional thought went), with award season expectations lowered, a dazzling new trailer for the film has arrived focusing on the bold spectacle the picture is trying to capture, but also some of the adversaries within. And seeing as Ang Lee has pulled off 3D/drama so spectacularly with "Life Of Pi" maybe doubts aren't so high as they once were.

Eyebrows were raised when "The Great Gatsby" was removed from its late-December release, rescheduled for next spring. The Baz Luhrmann picture was just one of many Warner Bros. films possibly angling for Oscar nominations, but with a crowded slate, and the difficulty in securing a large percentage of 3D screens, it seemed doubtful that the F. Scott Fitzgerald would be a Christmas gift to viewers. But could it be that, with a new May 10, 2013 date, Luhrmann's film is using that time to spruce up the soundtrack?

It was set to be a Leonardo DiCaprio showdown come Christmas Day 2012, only a few short months ago. That was before Warner Bros. pushed the DiCaprio-starring adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” back to May 10, 2013. While DiCaprio may still be weeping over the loss of that potentially magnificent double feature, as he's set to star in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" as well, director Baz Luhrmann appears to be handling it all quite well.

As already glimpsed in his Kanye-trotting premiere trailer for “The Great Gatsby,” Baz Luhrmann has confirmed his over-exuberant style will remain consistent for his fifth film. Unfortunately, as the Australian filmmaker's filmography has repeatedly shown, a pretty studio penny is also required to depict all that opulence on-screen, and now with Luhrmann facing a six-month delay, he's looking further than Warner Bros. to add some extra Jazz-age panache to the project.

Take this one right out of the Oscar race folks. While showing off a razzle dazzle trailer earlier this year that matched up Jay-Z beats with Jazz Age glamour, Warner Bros. have decided to shift Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" from a Christmas Day relaese to an unspecified date next summer.

When it was announced that Baz Luhrmann would be directing a film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," anyone who knew the Australian director's work sort of knew what to expect. They might not have guessed that he'd make the whole thing in 3D (which he has), but they knew you'd get something lavish, operatic and heavily styilized, with party scenes that finally lived up to some of Fitzgerald's descriptions.

We're still seven months away from the year's end, but with the unveiling of trailers for "Skyfall" and "The Master" yesterday, 2013 seems that little bit closer now, doesn't it? Unless the Mayans were right all along, Christmas this year will bring two major film releases in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" -- which we caught glimpses of yesterday at Cannes -- and Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel "The Great Gatsby," both of which star Leonardo DiCaprio.

Well, they're here folks! The first two images that Warner Bros. (courtesy of Sassisam, via The Film Stage) has chosen to release from Baz Luhrmann's splashy and expensive take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's required reading list staple "The Great Gatsby" and, well, they look like an adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," albeit one with a pretty enticing cast.

It's been a flurry of a morning with the awesome Toronto Film Festival line-up being announced. On top of that comes a ton of first looks at films that have been highly anticipated on our part. First up we have quite a few photos of Steve McQueen's "Shame," starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. McQueen last directed Fassbender in "Hunger," a movie about the 1981 hunger strike in Ireland. "Hunger" was Fassbender's first shove into the spotlight, and he's now one of the year's "it" guys, knocking it out of the park in "X-Men: First Class" earlier this summer and getting ready for an awards push as Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method," rumored to premiere at the Venice Film Festival (and definitely showing at Toronto either way).
