When we're 70, we hope we're half as busy as Martin Scorsese. The ever-moving filmmaker is currently busy prepping his forthcoming "The Wolf Of Wall Street"—with some new images from the movie, about one debauchery drive financial mogul, landing today—and as always, he already has his eye on what's coming next.

Along with Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" is one of the highest profile movies coming this fall that doesn't yet have a festival home. And while that could potentially change with Telluride coming up this weekend (organizers always keep their slate under lock and key until the first day), there is still a movie to market, and today comes another peek at the film from behind-the-scenes.

Stream This: Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Single Shot, more
Hello, streamers! Our picks for this week should prove to be nostalgic and contemporary, reflective and forward thinking, a look to the inspirational works of the past with a glance at what they've rendered since. Two films debuting in theaters are also new to VOD, while the release of Destin Cretton's much hailed "Short Term 12" encouraged us to take a look at his last feature. And with the opening of Wong Kar-wai's tenth feature film this weekend, we decided to feature the Chinese director quite prominently: some works—"Happy Together," "In the Mood for Love," and "Chungking Express"—are already well known, so we're offering a curated assortment from his early days of writing and directing that you may be a little less familiar with. The Criterion Collection's special presentation of remastered films (care of Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Foundation) on Hulu deserves similar attention, and we have an overview of two of our favorites from that group. Bet you can't wait to find out what they are! Let's get going.

Lovers On The Run feature
“We can make it. We can make it if we run,” whispers Ruth (Rooney Mara) in David Lowery’s “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” which, after a limited release on Friday, begins its expansion this week. It’s a film we loved at Sundance, and one that in its gentle subversion of the “Lovers on the Run” subgenre—as the prequel comic makes clear, the events of ‘Saints’ mostly take place after the bank robbin’, outlawin’ part of the story is done—reminded us of all the other great (and not so great) films that have pitted a pair of lovers against the law.

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, who spent a good decade or so amiably switching around the top two places on everybody's “Most Vastly Powerful Person In Hollywood” list, have been back in the news recently musing on the state of the industry now and in the future: a now and a future that they feel is a little grim for them personally and the moviegoer more generally.

There are filmmakers whose fame has elevated itself to a certifiable brand, but Martin Scorsese is one of them. The filmmaker is an American institution, but he's not above using his famous moniker to help draw some extra heat for movies that might need a little boost, whether they be from famous pals (Scorsese gets an executive producer tag on Robert De Niro's upcoming "The Family"), filmmakers he's borrowed from (he's producing "Infernal Affairs" director Andrew Lau's "Revenge Of The Green Dragons") or international movies that need some love (he presented Matteo Garrone's "Gomorrah"). And now he's set to do it again.
