The Wolf Of Wall Street
The infectious insanity of Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” continues to spread, as audiences settle down for their first viewing of the 3-hour, NC-17-skirting film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, or perhaps a second or third after a horribly misguided Christmas outing with the family. We called it “ a wild, potent ride” in our review, and from hearing actor Jonah Hill speak about his experience on the film—playing Jordan Belfort’s right-hand man Donnie Azoff—it’s clear that the “Moneyball” actor was feeling the same vibes throughout the entire shoot.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
As the debate rages about whether or not "The Wolf Of Wall Street" glorifies the misdeeds of sleazy Wall Street scumbags without offering consideration for the victims in their path, folks can perhaps rest assured that the real life Jordan Belfort won't make a dime off the movie or the book he wrote that it's based on (though he's already walked away with Leonardo DiCaprio filming a weird endorsement for the man himself).

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Ferociously vulgar, outrageously funny, a film about excess that nearly ran four hours long that still features over 50 songs in the movie, there is nothing nuanced or subtle about Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street." It's a go-for-broke, NC-17 skirting tale of debauchery that has left few feeling ambivalent about the picture. But if you've yet to sneak out of the family obligations and make it to the cinema to see this one for yourself, here are a few teases to get you moving. And if you have seen the flick, here's even more to dive into.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese has pretty much done it all in his career—tackling a wide variety of genres, delving into no small range of subject matter for documentaries and lending his name as a producer to projects for film and television. But did we nearly get his own "Kill Bill"? In the run-up to this week's release of "The Wolf Of Wall Street" (read our review), there was much talk about the editing process, the race to meet the deadline and the initial 4-hour cut of the movie. While Scorsese eventually got the movie down to a minute under three hours, it seems there was some thought about dropping that longer cut.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
A three hour ode to excess, indulgence and the perversion of the American Dream, Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" is probably the most outrageous, boundary pushing studio movie you will see in 2013 (just read our review for a taste of the debauchery). Indeed, it will leave a stamp on your brain no matter what you think of the movie (no shocker it made our Most Memorable Movie Moments Of 2013 list) and you will see cocaine used in more ways than you ever thought imaginable (along with crack, quaaludes, booze and all manner of other drugs). And while we're a bit surprised Paramount didn't bother cutting a red band trailer for 'Wolf' (though we'd understand if they feared turning off audiences expecting "Wall Street 3: Gangs Of Inception") some new promo material gives a taste of the naughty stuff.

How To Train Your Dragon 2
In the age of quick turnaround sequels, the four year wait for "How To Train Your Dragon 2" seems like an eon. But now a bonafide franchise—not only with a big screen followup, but a small screen offshoot too on Cartoon Network—DreamWorks is ready to cash in the success of the first movie. But can movie magic erupt like so much fire from the dragon's belly twice?

The Wolf Of Wall Street
In the immortal words of Rick James, “Cocaine is a helluva drug.” And in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” an outrageous, nearly three-hour-long hedonistic opus and cynical paean to American privilege, greed and debauchery, the characters hoover up mountains and mountains of cocaine. Based on Jordan Belfort’s memoirs about his time running a boiler room on Wall Street, his rise to extreme wealth, his wicked acts of decadence, and his inevitable downfall, “The Wolf Of Wall Street” is orgiastic and shocking; a gluttonous smorgasbord of sex, drugs, strippers, depravity and worse. Intensely perverse on many levels, it’s also one of the most darkly hilarious movies of the year.

22 Jump Street
Ordinarily, we're wary of sequels especially for comedies (we love you Will Ferrell, but "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" has a huge bar to hit), but we'll say this: the first red band trailer for "22 Jump Street" made us laugh. A lot.

A "Goodfellas"-esque epic of wealth, debauchery and ambition, "The Wolf Of Wall Street," is headed to theaters in just a few short weeks. And in the lead up to the movie, much has been made about Martin Scorsese's struggle to get the movie finished in time, editing the picture to avoid an NC-17 rating and simply taking the breadth of footage that was assembled and shaping it into a finished product that could be released in theaters. The final result is a movie that runs two hours and fifty nine minutes, making "The Wolf Of Wall Street" Scorsese's longest movie to date. And unsurprisingly, his first cut was much, much longer.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
The wolf is almost upon us. Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” that is, the director's “Goodfellas”-esque look at the gangster-like cheats and liars in the New York stockbroker world in the mid 90s. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler and many more (including directors Rob Reiner and Spike Jonze) as a tease, a new poster and TV spot have been unveiled along with a almost 30 minute THR roundtable interview with Scorsese, DiCaprio, Hill and screenwriter Terence Winter (the creator and head writer of Scorsese’s “Boardwalk Empire”).
