We could not be more thrilled that Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street will be arriving in 2013. It appeared there for a while that the film might get bumped until 2014, but Scorsese has finished it and it will arrive December 25, in time for Oscar consideration. This is the fifth collaboration between Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, and it appears this time out, DiCaprio may get his Best Actor nomination!
Paramount has released a series of stills from the movie, and the first could be seen as shocking, but it was in that The Wolf of Wall Street trailer. It features DiCaprio motivating his Wall Street troops with a little game of… dwarf tossing?
The film also stars Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin and Rob Reiner.
It is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, a drug-addled Wall Street type who amassed millions illegally and wound up spending 22 months in a federal prison. And note the final photo below of Scorsese directing DiCaprio... these two make movie magic!
