'The Wolf of Wall Street' Blu-ray Will Include the Rumored Four-Hour Cut

There was a lot of talk before Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' hit theaters about the length of the film: the release had been delayed so Scorsese could get the runtime down to an acceptable three hours from what was said to be a four-hour version of the film, and although Scorsese never releases "director's cuts" of his films, we're hearing you will be able to see his four-hour cut after all when the Blu-ray hits shelves this year.

Suiting Up for 'The Wolf of Wall Street': A Chat With One of Cinema's Most Sought-After Tailors

“These are left over from the strippers,” says an extra adding a pile of crinkled white button-downs to the wardrobe station, its tables already drizzled with majorette hats, plastic tubs full of men’s brown, leather wingtips, and standalone racks of fully styled outfits. With some actors having participated in a bathroom brawl scene the night before and an airplane orgy earlier still, dozens of women with classic ‘Working Girl’-style hair poofs and men fitted in their stockbroker best begin lining up for a final approval before heading to the bullpen set, where they'd soon be bombarding Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort with job requests.
And despite all these distractions on the set of 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' these background actors made time to approach one man dressed in a classic, pinstriped suit to ask, "Is this the Leonard Logsdail?"

New York Stories: A Complete Ranking of Martin Scorsese's Films

His films are transcendent. His influence is immeasurable. He is one of the greatest film directors, living or dead. So, how do you begin to definitively rank the 23 movies directed by Martin Scorsese?
This ranking was not just compiled by one writer, or even by a group of editors debating over lunch in a conference room. Over the past few months, we've reached out to over 100 actors, writers, artists, fellow directors, producers and film critics and asked all that important question: What is the best Martin Scorsese movie? Some polled answered with one, while others responded with multiple choices, unable to narrow it down. The ScreenCrush staff [Mike Sampson, Jordan Hoffman, Britt Hayes, Damon Houx, Jacob S. Hall and Kate Erbland] compiled all that data and sorted through it, ranking the films and inserting some of our own opinions to help break ties when necessary. It's to note this list is limited to narrative, feature-length movies so no 'The Last Waltz' or 'New York Stories' (sorry, Rian Johnson).
The ranking may not present the films according to how many Oscars they won or what their Rotten Tomatoes scores would be, but they certainly represent the influence on a generation of artists and entertainers inspired by Scorsese's genius. Edgar Wright may say 'Taxi Driver,' but David O. Russell may say 'Goodfellas' while Jon Favreau may say 'Raging Bull.'
We present to you now, the definitive ranking of all 23 feature-length Martin Scorsese movies from 'Boxcar Bertha' to 'The Wolf of Wall Street.' Let us know what your personal favorite is in the comments below.

'The Wolf of Wall Street' Review

'The Wolf of Wall Street,' Martin Scorsese's most dynamic and spry film since 'GoodFellas,' is an up close and personal tour of a snarling den of unchecked depravity. Really, theaters should be handing out bottles of Purel with the tickets. What begins as jovial bad behavior spirals out into an excess and deviance rarely shown on the screen.

See the Cast of 'Casino' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes December 11, 2013 @ 3:08 PM
Five years after 'Goodfellas,' Martin Scorsese collaborated with screenwriter and author Nicholas Pileggi once again on 'Casino,' the story of Sam "Ace" Rothstein (frequent Scorsese star Robert De Niro), a Jewish-American gambling handicapper who is used by the mob to oversee their casino operations in Las Vegas. Based in part on a true story, 'Casino' marks the eighth and final collaboration between De Niro and Scorsese, and went on to earn co-star Sharon Stone a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination. Eighteen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see where they are now.

New 'The Wolf of Wall Street' Pics (Plus a Bonus New Poster) Promise Lots of Debauchery

by Jacob Hall November 22, 2013 @ 3:21 PM
There are few things that will make a film fan happier than the arrival of a new Martin Scorsese picture, so it's by default that 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is our most anticipated movie of the holiday season. Since he's best known for making movies about shady criminal types, it's totally appropriate the genius behind 'Goodfellas,' 'Taxi Driver' and 'The Departed' is making a movie about Wall Street stockbrokers and we couldn't be more excited to see the results. But enough gushing! New images and a bonus new poster from the film have made their way online and you can check them out below.
