Although we were nearly lost out on a new Martin Scorsese film this year, the crisis was averted and we were gifted with a Christmas day release for “The Wolf Of Wall Street.” With the release mere weeks away, the Paramount marketing blitz is roaring up and a less-than-savory character is looking to get a boost.
A new set of stills have arrived online (via Deadline and EW) that give us a slightly different look at some scenes that we’ve already seen, whether it’s Leonardo DiCaprio giving Kyle Chandler a hard time on his yacht or Scorsese giving Margot Robbie and DiCaprio some direction while laying on some pink carpet.
In slightly WTF news, the subject of the film and the character DiCaprio portrays—Jordan Belfort—is now motivational speaker after serving less than two years in a four years sentence for financial crimes including stock market manipulation. How it gets even weirder is that The Bioscopist (via Filmdrunk) has dug up a video of DiCaprio shilling for Belfort’s motivational skills, calling him a “true motivator.” While DiCaprio is a great actor, we’ll let you decide whether he sounds believable and sincere in his endorsement.
Check out the DiCaprio’s advertorial, along with the new stills, below and watch “The Wolf Of Wall Street” when it hits theaters on Christmas Day.
