Wolf of Wall Street Poster header

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’ve now heard buzz on almost all of the major Fall releases. Two we’re still a bit in the dark about, though, are David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street. That’ll surely change in the coming weeks as each release is quickly approaching, but Paramount has begun to build the hype for Scorsese’s latest. Commercials have started airing for the Christmas release and now several new images, a clip and two awesome posters have made it online.

The Wolf of Wall Street opens December 25 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey among others. Check out the new media – which includes some awesome behind the scenes looks of Scorsese in action – below. Read More »

Roger Ebert

Steve James‘ documentary Life Itself, about the life of film critic Roger Ebert, is well into post-production. It looks as if the film will be finished early in 2014 and, to simultaneously help raise the final funds to finish the film as well as allow fans to see it early, the production has started an IndieGoGo campaign.

You can find the link to the IndieGoGo here. For as low as $25, you’ll get a link allowing you to stream the movie once it’s finished and well before the theatrical release. With a higher donation, you can attend live screenings, visit the editing room, and much more. All funds raised in the next month (they’re aiming at $150,000) will go towards post-production items such as original music, animation and graphics, color correction, audio mixing, music licensing and archival footage.

Martin Scorsese's Dolce and Gabbana ad

The Wolf of Wall Street was recently pushed from November 15 to December 25, which means moviegoers will have to wait a few weeks longer to see how exactly Leonardo DiCaprio ends up inviting a half-naked marching band into his office. Thankfully, Martin Scorsese has offered up another tidbit for us to enjoy in the meantime. And it even stars Wolf‘s Matthew McConaughey.

Dolce & Gabbana hired the master filmmaker to shoot a new commercial for its The One fragrance line, for which McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson serve as the spokesmodels. There isn’t a whole lot to it, but if you’ve got a few minutes to kill, you could certainly do worse than watching two beautiful folks zip around Manhattan as Scorsese makes them look impossibly glamorous. Check it out after the jump.

wolf-of-wall-street-trailer-2

The second trailer from Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street may not have the propulsive drive of the first, which was powered by Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead,’ but it does have a few oh-so-perfect shots of Leonardo DiCaprio reacting to the insane wealth and resulting lifestyle his character enjoys. It’s a gif wonderland, this trailer. The fist-bite shot above is just one example.

Here we see DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, who with an eager beaver assistant played by Jonah Hill (wearing some massive false choppers) builds a young, go-getting brokerage firm. They make more cash than they know what do do with; trouble is, most of what they’re doing is totally illegal. Oops. The feds show up, of course, but not before this tale of Wall Street hubris really plays in the sandbox of insane wealth.

It all looks deliberately exaggerated and more than bit over the top, but seeing Scorsese and DiCaprio in a mode this lively is a joy to behold. Read More »

Officially, The Wolf of Wall Street is still set to open November 15. But a couple of weeks back, word got around that Martin Scorsese was having trouble getting it together in time for that deadline, and it looked like we’d have to wait until 2014 to see it.

Today, though, we’re hearing that the situation might not be quite that dire. According to a new report, Scorsese and his editor Thelma Schoonmaker are scrambling to finish the cut by Thanksgiving. That’d allow them to open the film by the end of the year, keeping it in contention for next year’s Oscars. Hit the jump for the latest update on this much-anticipated project.

Nothing is official yet, but multiple outlets are reporting Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming film The Wolf of Wall Street is highly unlikely to hit its November 15, 2013 release date.

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler and Jean Dujardin, and rumor has it Scorsese recently turned in a near-three hour cut and needs to slim it down closer to two. That’ll take some time, and that time will likely mean the film misses the 2013 Oscar race. Read More »
