'The Great Gatsby' Release Date Set For Christmas Day 2012

Posted: Updated:

It looks like Leonardo DiCaprio fans will have a nice little double feature waiting for them at movie theaters next Christmas.

Baz Luhrmann's take on the "The Great Gatsby" will hit theaters December 25, 2012, Warner Bros. announced Friday, and it's shaping up to be a DiCaprio-filled opening day.

Yep, DiCaprio's biggest competition come Christmas 2012 is...himself. Not only does the actor play Jay Gatsby in the highly-anticipated film, he also stars in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," which is also set to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2012.

DiCaprio vs. DiCaprio? Now that's the best present we could ask for.

The actor is currently in Australia filming "Gatsby," along with co-stars Tobey Macguire, Joel Edgerton, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher, but he can't seem escape the romance rumors that have been swirling since his split from Blake Lively earlier this month.
