Warners has released a similar but different trailer for Baz Luhrmann's"The Great Gatsby." About a month ago, Warner Bros. announced a May 10, 2013 release date for Baz Luhrmann's $127 million 3-D drama starring Leonardo Di Caprio in the title role, moving it back from its planned December 25 berth.

Warners has released a similar but different trailer for Baz Luhrmann's"The Great Gatsby."  About a month ago, Warner Bros. announced a May 10, 2013 release date for Baz Luhrmann's $127 million 3-D drama starring Leonardo Di Caprio in the title role, moving it back from its planned December 25 berth. The studio decided it was better skipping the holiday award season fray.  Warners thus allows the Australian auteur to fuss with the soundtrack and the 3-D visual effects to prep it as a robust summer crowdpleaser.

Something to look forward to: it's rumored that the soundtrack might feature the original songs from Prince and Lady Gaga.

In addition to updating the release date for the Fitzgerald adaptation, the trailer also corrects the Ziegfeld Follies gaff in the original rendition -- spelling the revue correctly this time (simple 'i' and 'e' inversion, not a huge deal, but a bit of an internet schadenfreude blip at the moment).
