The wolf is almost upon us. Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” that is, the director's “Goodfellas”-esque look at the gangster-like cheats and liars in the New York stockbroker world in the mid 90s. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler and many more (including directors Rob Reiner and Spike Jonze) as a tease, a new poster and TV spot have been unveiled along with a almost 30 minute THR roundtable interview with Scorsese, DiCaprio, Hill and screenwriter Terence Winter (the creator and head writer of Scorsese’s “Boardwalk Empire”). What do we learn in the Q&A? Lots. We know the movie almost got an Nc-17 rating, and the 3-hour-long movie underwent "multiple rounds" of cuts with the MPAA. Though Paramount chairman Brad Grey says, "There were really not major cuts in this movie; there were trims." DiCaprio calls it a “hard R [rated]” film. »

In this exclusive clip from Martin Scorsese's latest film, based on former stockbroker Jordan Belfort's memoir of the same name, a wide-eyed Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill) approaches Jordan (DiCaprio) with one question: "You make a lot of money?"
After all, Jordan has a gleaming new Jag sitting outside in the parking lot, yet they live in the same building.
"Yeah, I do all right for myself," Jordan answers nonchalantly. Of course, to him, "all right" means $72,000 a month. We wonder what "doing great" would mean.

Clooney directs and stars alongside Matt Damon in the Second World War film, which will arrive in cinemas in February.
The movie, which is based on Robert Edsel's book, is centred around the true story of a WWII platoon given the task of rescuing cultural objects from Nazi thieves in Germany.
In October, the release of The Monuments Men was delayed from December to February, meaning it is no longer eligible to be nominated at the 2014 Academy Awards.
The film has slipped in the schedule to allow more time for work on its visual effects.
"We just didn't have enough time," said Clooney. "If any of the effects looked cheesy, the whole movie would look cheesy. »
The George Clooney directed The Monuments Men will top many filmgoer’s lists to catch next year, and early buzz is excellent for the ensemble comedy-drama, for which a new international trailer has just landed.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by Fdr with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, »

Although George Clooney’s The Monuments Men won’t hit theaters until 2014, it’s still a movie that a lot of people are excited for right now. It looks very promising, judging by what’s been shown off so far, and today sees the release of a new trailer, which is even better than the first one that arrived back in August.
Providing us with a ton of new footage while staying fairly consistent with the tone that we saw previously, it’s clear that the film still has that Ocean’s 11 meets WWII vibe, which I dig. The new trailer also goes more in depth in regards to why this group took on the mission that they did. It really lays out the stakes and shows why George Stout believed saving art was so important in the midst of all the death and suffering that went along with the Nazi regime. »

"Why would you do that?"
A new trailer has arrived online for the WWII flick The Monuments Men, and it has us wishing the release date hadn't been moved back. This would have been a great movie to see with the family at Christmas time, but now it won't hit theaters until February 7th. With George Clooney's fantastic 'stache, John Goodman's epic comic timing, and the best diss of London that has possibly ever been delivered in cinematic history, this new trailer has us looking forward to Monuments Men even more. Also, what's better than a heist movie that stars Matt Damon and George Clooney?

"You can wipe out an entire generation. You can burn their homes to the ground. And somehow they will still find their way back. But if you destroy their history, you destroy their achievements, then it's as if they never existed. That's what Hitler wants. And that's exactly what we're fighting for." This is the bold claim made by George Stout, leader of the titular band of art history heroes from The Monuments Men. Inspired by real events, this drama co-written, directed by and starring George Clooney sheds a spotlight on a World War II platoon whose job was to save national treasures and priceless art pieces from the destructive hands of the Nazis. And in the international trailer shared by The Daily Mail, you can see Clooney oozing old school charm alongside his star stacked cast that includes Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, Hugh »
George Clooney's all-star WWII heist film "The Monuments Men" was recently moved from Oscar season to a quieter release date in February, and the film's new trailer seems to reflect a change in objective from award-winner to crowd-pleaser. Clooney leads a stellar cast -- including Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Bob Balaban, "The Artist's" stars Jean Dujardin and John Goodman, and "Downton Abbey" star Hugh Bonneville -- as they attempt to recover priceless works of European art plundered by HItler and his Nazi war machine toward the end of WWII. Starting with the presence of Clooney and Damon, "Monuments" is certainly not shying »

Director George Clooney and writer Grant Heslov (Good Night, and Good Luck, The Ides of March) have teamed up again for a new WWII film The Monuments Men. In a sort of Dirty Dozen meets Ocean's Eleven storyline, The Monuments Men follows a group of respected historians and museum curators enlisted by the United States Army to help recover priceless works of art stolen by the Nazis. Led by George Clooney, the movie also stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Jean Dujardin. »
Georgle Clooney's Monuments Men looked like it could be a player in this year's awards race, but it had to be pushed back to February in order to work on the special effects and find the tone of the story. For those who are unfamiliar with the film, it’s based on a true story about soldiers and historians who have to go to Germany during World War II to rescue artistic masterpieces before they’re destroyed by the Nazis. The first trailer made the film look confused and mediocre, but now an international trailer has gone online, and the movie looks like it's in much better shape. The humor is sharper, the story is better laid out, and the stakes are more clearly defined. There's even a little grin about the premise having a bit of an Ocean's Eleven vibe when Matt Damon's character asks Clooney, "Aren't you a little old for this? »

It's immensely difficult to strike the balance between earnest and funny when it comes to movies about World War II, but if anyone can, it's probably our man George Clooney.
Clooney, who directed and co-wrote the screenplay, creates a funny "Ocean's Eleven"-style heist vibe as an art conservationist who enlists a group of international experts to save art from Hitler's clutches. Roosevelt himself has given the marching orders for the platoon to seek out the irreplaceable artworks stolen by Nazi goons from museums across Europe.
This gang includes Matt Damon (naturally), John Goodman, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, and Cate Blanchett, who each have their own specialty and stake in getting to the most precious works of art before they go into Hitler's archives or are destroyed.
Of course, there are some kooky moments, like when Damon's character finds himself standing on an unexploded land mine, or when »

While it won't be in the Oscar mix both because it won't be ready and for the fact that it's, as George Clooney calls it, "a commercial, non-cynical piece of entertainment," "Monuments Men" still has the kind of star power to attract a red carpet. And indeed, it will be making its international premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in just a couple of months. And with that in mind, a brand new overseas trailer has arrived. Featuring lots of new footage, but the same "Ocean's Eleven"-meets-wwii vibe, this new spot features dashingly handsome men, real history, genuine emotion and all told, promises a pretty decent couple of hours at the movie house. MIssion: accomplished, Clooney? Based on Robert M. Edsel's book, the movie chronicles the true story of a specially commissioned platoon who are tasked with recovering stolen artwork before the end of WWII, and a bunch of magazine ready faces — Matt Damon, »

Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s reuniting has sparked suggestions the duo may well be the team to beat during the upcoming awards season. The Wolf Of Wall Street, and particular DiCaprio, received a standing ovation at a recent press and industry screening. The three-hour film is Scorsese’s longest of his esteemed career and despite strong scenes of nudity, drug taking and outright craziness (only just scraping through with an R-rating), seems to have gone down well with most of those who have a say in where the awards will be going.
The Wolf Of Wall Street is adapted by Terrence Winter of the same-titled biography of Jordan Belfort. He was a rising young financial hot-shot in the 1990s, whose hard partying lifestyle and excessive drug abuse saw him escalating towards money laundering and security fraud that ultimately led him being sent to prison in 1998.

Check out 2 fresh posters from the eagerly-anticipated The Wolf of Wall Street. The first features Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, with the other Japanese poster showing just DiCaprio. Paramount Pictures distributes the drama scripted by Terence Winter from the autobiography by Jordan Belfort, which hits theaters on December 25th, 2013. The talented cast also includes Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bernthal, Kyle Chandler, Jon Favreau, Ethan Suplee, Jean Dujardin, Shea Whigham, Rob Reinger, Spike Jonze, Martin Klebba and Joanna Lumley From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty »
As any Tumblr account holder may know, the fact that Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio hasn’t yet won an Oscar is something you can make many, many Gif sets out of. As a long-time fan of his, I think it’s really sad he hasn’t been given the honour of placing a golden statuette on his mantelpiece – but The Wolf Of Wall Street may be about to change that.
The Wolf Of Wall Street, based on the life of scoundrel banker Jordan Belfort and directed by living legend Martin Scorsese, debuted to SAG voters and several critics this weekend, with reports surfacing that the film received a rapturous reception. Described as ‘Scorsese’s Satyricon’, the film has ‘put Scorsese right back in the thick of the Oscar race, if Academy members, particularly older ones, can deal with the almost non-stop parade of sex, drugs, nudity and rock and roll’. Sounds like fun! »
