THE WOLF OF WALL STREET Officially Set for December 25th; Will Run at 165 Minutes

by     Posted 1 year, 53 days ago


Briefly: We previously reported that Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street would likely be released on December 25th.  The story, based on Jordan Belfort‘s memoir, chronicles the broker’s rise and fall as he vast riches lead him into a hedonistic lifestyle.  According to THR, Paramount chairman Brad Grey officially gave a go-ahead for the Christmas release date after seeing Scorsese’s new cut late yesterday.  Scorsese’s original cut ran over 180 minutes, but the final runtime is 165 minutes.  The movie looks insane, but it will also be the biggest prestige picture on December 25th opening opposite The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, 47 Ronin, Grudge Match, and the Justin Bieber documentary Believe.  It may not win the box office that weekend, but it could have a serious shot at getting into the awards race.

The Wolf of Wall Street stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, Cristin Milioti, P.J. Byrne, and Ethan Suplee.  The new trailer will be released later today.

    It’s going to crush the box office. The next trailer they put out will sell anyone who isn’t already fully in.

      I almost don’t want another trailer. the first trailer was so intriguing without telling me anything. I wanna go in without knowing anything, for once. I hope they do the same thing with American Hustle.

    And there was much rejoicing! My most anticipated film of the year! Go ‘Wall Street’!

    Ooh, 47 Ronin and Grudge Match’re looking scared. They should all be scared, though, of the giant box office leviathan of The Hobbit, which looks poised to crush American Hustle and take the box office far over the Misty Mountains cold. And if not at home, than definitely abroad. The name American Hustle has pretty much ruled out that movie for competition with The Hobbit overseas.

    If its half as good as the book it will be amazing!!!

    Wait… I thought the whole reason for the delay was because Paramount wanted him to cut it down to around 2:30.

    Martin Scorsese sold out when he went digital when he didn’t need to. His giant movies of the past 10 years have been bloated. This looks like a slick remake of Goodfellas and Casino on Wall Street. It looks like a stockholm syndrome movie. Glitz and glamor subtly glorifying a corrupt institution that keeps us all down.

      Well you should stay home and not go see it.

        I think I will, Derek. Thanks for telling me what I should do, Dad.

      most of it is shot on FILM! just look at the trailer! plus did you read the interviews Leo was giving? they(him and jonah hill) were improvising until the film canister run out!

      i’m sure they tried to go digital at first(he contemplated at first whether to shoot this in 3D remember), then digital 2d, but in the end changed to film(maybe they could never get the look right for this film if they shoot it digitally)
