Leonardo DiCaprio has two movies opening next Christmas Day


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for Leonardo DiCaprio fans, as they’ll have two (very different) DiCaprio films to choose from on Christmas Day in 2012.

Providing release dates hold up – which is rare these days – Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” will open up against Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” next Christmas. Their link? Both feature DiCaprio in prominent roles.

Warner just announced the “Gatsby” date. Will Tarantino blink? Is it smart to have DiCaprio face off against DiCaprio?

Both films appear to be going after completely different audiences. “Gatsby” is setting up as a period adaptation, with DiCaprio joined by Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan in a Gold Coast drama. Tarantino’s “Django,” meanwhile, is an unfiltered genre movie, a spaghetti Western set in slavery days.

Still, I wouldn’t be surprised – depending on how production schedules play out – to see one of these films move off the date sooner rather than later.
