The Debauchery Begins In Two New ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ Posters, TV Spots, Photos & More

Will it, won’t it? Yes, Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street” is arriving in theaters on Christmas Day, but for the better part of the fall, its release date was up in the air with plenty of speculation whether it would be finished in time. And as the question mark of the Oscar season, the picture is starting to emerge. With a February date once mooted, would it be more akin to “Shutter Island,” insofar as that it’s a good piece of entertainment but not quite Oscar material? It is a black comedy, or something else? That’s become clearer.

Will it, won’t it? Yes, Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street” is arriving in theaters on Christmas Day, but for the better part of the fall, its release date was up in the air with plenty of speculation whether it would be finished in time. And as the question mark of the Oscar season, the picture is starting to emerge. With a February date once mooted, would it be more akin to “Shutter Island,” insofar as that it’s a good piece of entertainment but not quite Oscar material? It is a black comedy, or something else? That’s become clearer.

The first clip of from the movie arrived yesterday and, moreover, we spoke to “Boardwalk Empire” creator and “The Wolf Of Wall Street” writer Terence Winter and when asked what the film was like in tone and color he told us it was akin to Scorsese’s own “Goodfellas.” “It is very much [in that vein],” Winter told The Playlist yesterday. “It’s sort of written in the same style, voice-overs, it’s a very fast movie, it’s really a wild roller coaster ride.”

So magnetic and charming men who commit horrible acts? Yep. “They’re basically despicable [people] in terms… the crimes they’re perpetrating on innocent people,” Winter said. “But because they’re so wild and fun and you’re living vicariously through their antics you find yourself forgetting that… Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, they’re so entertaining, fun and seductive.”

Co-starring Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau and many more (director Spike Jonze apparently has a little, small part too, as he did in “Moneyball”), lots of new ‘Wall Street’ bounty has arrived including a new TV spot, the first official poster and additional photos on top of the ones we unveiled earlier in the week.
