There has been a lot of talk surrounding Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street"—whether or not it would be finished in time, rumors of NC-17 material and of course, the overall length of the movie, etc. Last we heard, it was going clock in at 2 hours 45 minutes, but word from abroad suggests that the runtime has been padded further.

The Wolf Of Wall Street

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street"—whether or not it would be finished in time, rumors of NC-17 material and of course, the overall length of the movie, etc. Last we heard, it was going clock in at 2 hours 45 minutes, but word from abroad suggests that the runtime has been padded further.

The folks over at Allocine are reporting that according to France distributor Metropolitan Filmexport, "The Wolf Of Wall Street" now clocks in at 2 hour and 59 minutes (which we can only surmise was done to get under a 3 hour-limit). This would make the movie Scorsese's longest feature to date, besting the 2 hour and 50 minute "The Aviator" and 2 hour and 58 minute "Casino." It also means you will probably want to make sure you go to the bathroom before you settle in on Christmas Day. 

Meanwhile, until we wait Scorsese's opus of hubris and good looking people doing awful things, Owen Weber has put together a mashup pairing "The Wolf Of Wall Street" with "It's A Wonderful Life." The result? "The Wolf Of Bedford Falls." Clever stuff, watch below.
