The 11 Most Absurd Moments in the New 'Wolf of Wall Street' Trailer

Good news for the Martin Scorsese-Leonardo DiCaprio collective. After pushing the film back from its original mid-November release schedule due to a whopping 3 hour run-time, Paramount has now confirmed that the director will indeed have his proverbial ducks in a row just in time for "The Wolf of Wall Street" to bow on Christmas (outta the way, "Jack Ryan").

That means we can most likely expect a fast and furious awards season campaign from Marty, Leo and maybe even a few of the supporting cast members — which include Matthew McConaugheyJonah Hill (and wouldn't he just love to be in contention again this year?), Kyle ChandlerJon BernthalJean DujardinRob ReinerJon FavreauSpike Jonze and Margot Robbie.

Happy tuxedo dance, anyone?

Perhaps to celebrate the news, the studio has released a brand new trailer for the one percentric film, and we couldn't help but notice that it's got hilariously absurd moments aplenty. Here are our favorite 11. Get More »

Paramount Paramount

"The Wolf of Wall Street" was originally scheduled for release on Nov. 15, but now even director Martin Scorsese isn't quite sure when the thing's gonna be ready or how it'll be trimmed down from its current 180 minute (yep, 3 frickin' hours) run time.

So, as of this moment, there simply is no release date for the latest Marty S. and Leonardo DiCaprio Dream Team reunion. Womp. But wait, there's more! Get More »

Until last week, I thought Saoirse Ronan's name was pronounced "Swar-reese Ronan," to the point that, when I would mention to anyone that I was in the process of creating this article, I would say with a vaguely subtle air of sanctimony, "It's Hollywood's unpronounceable names — like that girl from 'The Lovely Bones,' Swar-reese Ronan."

Later, I would find out that I was very wrong. Like, Neville Chamberlain wrong. Get More »

Martin Scorsese Brings Immigrant Knife Fights to TV for 'Gangs of New York'

Miramax Miramax

The 2002 film "Gangs of New York" was Martin Scorsese's long-gestating (since 1977) attempt to capture the bloody strife between Irish immigrants and Nativists in New York's Five Points district (what is now mostly Chinatown) during the height of the Civil War. It was epic, it was nominated for Best Picture, it was an expensive nightmare to make.

Apparently Scorsese didn't quite get the whole story out of his system, however, since Deadline reports he is teaming up with his old antagonists at Miramax to bring "Gangs of New York" to television with the same lavish scope and violence that he lent HBO's "Boardwalk Empire." Get More »

Matthew McConaughey is about to trade his leather thong for a pinstriped suit. We may be guessing about the pinstriped detail, but the "Magic Mike" star has signed on for Martin Scorsese's latest, "The Wolf of Wall Street."

Adapted by Terence Winter (the scribe behind "Boardwalk Empire" and "The Sopranos") from Jordan Belfort's book, the crime drama follows a New York stockbroker who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street that has links back to the mob… not that this story has any basis in real life or anything.

Weinstein Company

Being an actor is a funny way to make a living.

Take Joel Kinnaman, for instance. A couple of years ago he was basically a complete unknown in America, doing little indie films in Europe, waiting for his big break. Then his TV series on AMC, "The Killing," briefly becomes a big hit and the next thing you know, Martin Scorsese is pounding down his door.

No wonder the trailer for his new film boasts the title "Easy Money." Get More »
