LOL: ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Honest Trailer

wolf of wall street honest trailer

The best thing about the Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are that the crew behind them actually like the movies they’re parodying. Their latest endeavor, The Wolf of Wall Street, shows plenty of reverence for director Martin Scorsese‘s hilarious yet disturbing story of excess. It points out much of what’s great about the movie while also poking fun at its pop culture relevance. It highlights co-star Matthew McConaughey beating Leonardo DiCaprio for the Oscar, the debut of Jonah Hill‘s penis, Scorsese’s love of DiCaprio, and how some audiences totally missed the point of the movie. It’s a super funny video. Watch The Wolf of Wall Street Honest Trailer below. Read More »

Leonardo DiCaprio

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has been attached to the true 1800s revenge tale The Revenant for three years. In that time, the film has progressed little (Inarritu took time to direct October‘s Birdman), but a very important piece was just locked in. Leonardo DiCaprio has fully committed to star in the film. They’ll begin shooting in September, making the story of a man left for death in the woods a likely Fall 2015 release and potential 2016 Oscar contender. Read More »

Daniel Espinosa on Safe House set

Sunday wasn’t Leonardo DiCaprio‘s night, as it turned out, but the five-time Oscar nominee isn’t letting that slow him down. One of his many upcoming projects, Blood on Snow, is taking a big step forward as Safe House director Daniel Espinosa enters talks to helm.

DiCaprio has been attached to produce and possibly star in the thriller since last fall. It’s an adaptation of a two-book series by Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbø, who also provided the source material for Headhunters. More on the new project after the jump.

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill‘s last team-up was a big success on a professional level, resulting in Oscar nominations for both, and by all accounts the two hit it off on a personal level as well. Now they’re eager to reunite, this time to tell the story of Richard Jewell.

Fox has acquired the rights to Marie Brenner‘s 1997 Vanity Fair article “The Ballad of Richard Jewell,” which followed the security guard who discovered a pipe bomb at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He was initially hailed as a hero, and then (incorrectly) vilified as a suspect. More details on the project after the jump.

Wolf_Of_Wall_Street-5

Martin Scorsese‘s new film, The Wolf of Wall Street, is turning into one of the biggest firebrands of late 2013 as it provokes conversations about glorification versus excoriation of the film’s central character, and about our national obsession with getting rich. You won’t see too much of that in the official marketing, which is aimed squarely at getting across how much fun these characters have screwing people over. But it’s still there, and then when Scorsese and his collaborators have a chance to talk about the material it all starts to come out. Below we’ve got a couple official behind the scenes fluff pieces, and a couple of longer interviews that are much more in-depth. Read More »

Wolf of Wall Street Scorsese 4

Martin Scorsese‘s had a prolific career, giving us nearly two dozen narrative features in the past fifty years — and that’s not even counting the various documentaries, shorts, TV episodes, and commercials he’s also put out in that time. But now the iconic filmmaker’s career may be nearing an end.

Speaking at the Marrakech Film Festival, Scorsese said that he only has a “couple more” movies left in him and that in fact, it’s only thanks to his frequent star Leonardo DiCaprio that he’s even kept going this long. Read his comments after the jump.

Only a few people have seen The Wolf of Wall Street, from Martin Scorsese — mostly guild members and Oscar pundits — but the word has been pretty enthusiastic. I’ve heard that the movie is funny and extraordinarily debauched; that NC-17 talk wasn’t idle chatter. (DiCaprio describes it as “a modern day Caligula.“) There’s a lot of talk about how good the cast is, and also some interesting notes about the music choices.

We’ll all get to see it soon, as the movie opens on Christmas Day, but for now you can either watch or bookmark this great roundtable talk with the creators. Scorsese takes part, with star/producer Leonardo DiCaprio, co-star Jonah Hill, and screenwriter Terence Winter. Read More »
