Some bad news for anyone looking forward to the long-awaited Sin City sequel... with just under four months to go until its scheduled release date of October 4th, The Weinstein Company has decided to push back the Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller-helmed comic book adaptation a little over ten months, with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For now set to hit cinemas on August 22nd 2014.

The Iceman ended a year long release process from its initial festival run to it getting released here in the UK to generally positive reviews. We recently had a chance to catch up with director Ariel Vromen to discuss the film’s journey as well what is in store for himself now that his six year long process of getting The Iceman made is finally over.
The idea of making The Iceman was planted in Ariel Vromen’s head after seeing a documentary about Richard Kuklinski.’ I saw a human being that was torturing himself for having such an ability and such a lack of emotion, doing such gruesome murders and being such a good soldier in a way, and then at the same time speaking of such security and love and building such a world of fantasy about his family, something he was lacking as a child and being such emotional about it, »

The trailer for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill among others, sent a shock wave last night when it finally dropped. Set to the pulse of Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" (releasing tomorrow as part of the rapper's already-leaked sixth studio album, "Yeezus"), it announced a whole new shade for the filmmaker that has brought us delicious bite in a wide array of films, from "Taxi Driver" to "Goodfellas" to "The Departed." Will this take on capitalism's great shame, coming at just the right time, stand shoulder-to-shoulder with those classics? Time will tell. Will »

Queens — The FBI began digging for a body Monday in the former Queens home of notorious mob power James “Jimmy The Gent” Burke, who was famously portrayed by Robert De Niro in the movie "Goodfellas," sources told DNAinfo New York.
FBI Evidence Collection specialists and agents from the Organized Crime Division descended into the basement of Burke’s family home at 81-48 102 Rd. in South Ozone Park around 8 a.m. armed with jackhammers and sledge hammers.
Sources said the feds recently obtained information from a new cooperating informant linked to the Gambino and Bonanno crime families who told them he believed a hood who disappeared decades ago was buried in Burke’s basement or backyard.
The sources say the dig is not related the fabled 1978 Lufthansa Heist, where Burke, portrayed as Jimmy Conway by De Niro in "Goodfellas," and his fellow wiseguys pulled off an $8 million robbery at JFK, »

It's hard not to immediately think of Goodfellas while watching the deliciously hip and happening first trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. It begins with a fast-talkin' voiceover from Leonardo DiCaprio, who at one point also breaks the fourth wall and addresses the camera -- signaling Scorsese is returning to one of his most familiar storytelling devices. The film, like Goodfellas, is also based on a real-life story -- the '90s-set rise and fall of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort -- and, like Goodfellas, The Wolf of Wall Street appears to have a trio of male actors taking the lead with DiCaprio, Jonah Hill (playing comic relief, much in the same way Joe Pesci did in Goodfellas) and Matthew McConaughey, who, like Robert De Niro, seems to be in...

Fresh off The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio is rolling in the dough again - but this time it's the 1990s, baby. The brand-new trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, which reteams DiCaprio with director Martin Scorsese for the fifth time, shows the star partying hard with his shady stockbroker buddies - while the FBI is sniffing around. DiCaprio's voiceover kicks things off with a Goodfellas vibe: "The year I turned 26, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week." Matthew McConaughey looks to be continuing his scene-stealing streak as DiCaprio's boss, »

It has been a busy morning in the world of trailers. It kicked off earlier today when the first trailer hit for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street". Many weren't sure what to expect, what we got looks like a more jovial and white collar incarnation of "Goodfellas". Set to Kanye West's "Black Skinhead", it's something of a minor masterpiece.
Also out this morning comes new international trailers for both David Twohy's "Riddick" and the young adult novel adaptation "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones". Neither adds much in the way of new footage, though "Riddick" does offer some money shots of people being grabbed by tentacles and Vin Diesel pulling off a CG-assisted motorbike stunt.

A Guy's Guide to Being a Man's Man will be adapted into a comedy film.
The book includes the Sopranos actor's tips on clothing, cigars, wine and talking your way into a club.
"Through Goodfellas and The Sopranos, I have been a huge Frank Vincent fan, and we saw a great opportunity to turn his self-help book into a great comedy in the vein of Horrible Bosses or The Hangover with a little bit of Stephen King's Quitters Inc in there," said Benderspink's Jc Spink.
Just Friends' Adam 'Tex' Davis will adapt the A Guy's Guide to Being a Man's Man script. »
Fresh off his role as the titular 1920s playboy in "The Great Gatsby," Leonardo DiCaprio is back for more big spending and hard partying, '90s-style, in the first trailer for "The Wolf of Wall Street," his latest film with Martin Scorsese. After going the family route with 3D fable "Hugo," Scorsese looks to be back in "Goodfellas" territory with "Wolf," which tracks the rise and fall of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio). Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey both co-star and look to be in scene-stealing form. "The Artist" breakout Jean Dujardin is also part of the cast, but doesn't appear in the video below. "Boardwalk Empire" creator Terence Winter wrote the script. The film bows November 15. Watch trailer below. »

"Was all this legal? Absolutely not." Time to meet Jay Gatsby of the 1980's. Paramount has debuted the first trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, the latest movie directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a young millionaire living the party life. This almost-Goodfellas-sequel also stars Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bernthal, Margot Robbie and Kyle Chandler, plus plenty of others yet to be seen (in this trailer), like Rob Reiner, Jon Favreau, Jean Dujardin, and Spike Jonze. This looks a bit more like Spring Breakers in Manhattan than Wall Street, but I trust in Scorsese and his stellar cast. Enjoy! Here's the first trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, direct from Paramount's YouTube: A young New York stockbroker named Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration. »

Thumping Kanye West beats introduce Martin Scorsese's take on the Cosa Nostra of our time: the hard-partying, money-hoovering, morality-eschewing corporate trader. With a Goodfellas-ish voiceover, Leonardo DiCaprio sets the scene of for a quick spin through a lifestyle of comprehensive illegality – "we were making more money than we knew what to do with"; he plays the real-life figure of Jordan Belfort, on whose book the film is based. Girls, yachts, and flagrant disregard for the value of folding currency all feature heavily.
The trailer suggests a film that will be zip along like the cocaine freak we assume these Wall Street types to be; all the insanity is certainly a little hard on innocent crustacean bystanders. Belfort's shenanigans have inspired at »

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a stockbroker.” Leonardo DiCaprio might as well be laying out that line in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street, where he plays real-life multi-millionaire stockbroker/swindler Jordan Belfort. In the new trailer, gleeful immorality, fat stacks of cash and a self-aware voice-over from a man who wants too much all feel like a sequel to Goodfellas. Or maybe a modern adaptation of “Bonfire of the Vanities” (The Wolfe of Wall Street?). Or maybe the Gatsby For 2013 that’s really for 2013. Comparisons aside, it looks ridiculously cool. Belfort’s trick was artificially inflating a stock price before dumping the lion’s shares and screwing over clients. He made a crazy amount of money that fueled some very profound drug and control problems — and it looks like DiCaprio is having the time of his life here. It’s almost like Django loosened the lid for »

Director Martin Scorsese is considered a legend by many, with his debut feature Taxi Driver being hailed as a classic alongside numerous other features such as Goodfellas and Raging Bull, with other features such as The Departed and Gangs of New York being held in high regard. Many fans of the director were excited to hear that Scorsese would be taking on the film adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s book next, excitement which was heightened by news that longtime collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio would be joining Scorsese in the lead role. Terence Winter takes the reins on the screenplay of the film, titled The Wolf of Wall Street, and the cast includes Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bernthal, and Kyle Chandler. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

We've somehow struggled, so far, to get excited for "The Wolf Of Wall Street." Maybe it's that we've started to take Martin Scorsese for granted -- his last few films, in "The Departed," "Shutter Island" and "Hugo" were all highly entertaining, but perhaps not up to the gold standard of the very best of his work. Perhaps it's that the film seemed to mine, on paper, territory already well-trodden by films like "Wall Street" and "Margin Call." Or maybe we're just dead inside. That said, don't expect our relative apathy to be the case anymore, because the first trailer for the film arrived overnight, and boy, does it look fantastic. Scored to Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" (from his ace new record "Yeezus"), it does seem to be a white-collar ancestor to "Goodfellas" and its ilk, but with a gonzo comedy feel that we're not sure we've seen from Scorsese since "After Hours. »

The first trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street has arrived, and it gives a startling glimpse at this tale of reckless decadence in the stock market's healthier days, courtesy of Jordan Belfort's autobiography.Leo DiCaprio stars as the New York stockbroker who became embroiled in a huge securities fraud case that looked to pull in some of the biggest names on Wall Street. If you're thinking this sounds like Goodfellas Goes Banking, then you're clearly on the same page as Scorsese, as this first trailer goes to great lengths to show just how much fun the good times were before the bubble burst and the FBI came a-knocking.DiCaprio continues to produce his best work under Scorsese's direction, while the veteran helmsman is certainly...

Well, that didn't take long. Kanye West's "Yeezus" won't be in stores officially until June 18th, but the new "Wolf Of Wall Street" trailer is cut to the driving pulse of "Black Skinhead," one of the album's tracks, and it is a positively riveting first glimpse at what looks like the "GoodFellas" of the financial world. It fascinates me that when we finally close the book on Martin Scorsese's career, hopefully another few decades and at least a dozen films from now, there's going to be a major chapter that will be defined by his work with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Vincent’s book, co-written with Steven Prigge, was published by Berkley Books in 2006, shortly after HBO’s “The Sopranos” ended with Vincent’s Phil Leotardo a dominant character in the final season. The thesp, who portrayed tough guys in “Raging Bull,” “Casino” and “Goodfellas,” dispensed advice on clothing, cigars, wine and talking one’s way into a club, asserting, “If you want to be a big dog, then don’t play like a puppy.”
“Through ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘The Sopranos’ I have been a huge Frank Vincent fan and we saw a great opportunity to turn his self-help book into a great comedy in the vein of ‘Horrible Bosses’ or ‘The Hangover’ with a little bit of Stephen King’s ‘Quitters Inc.’ in there,” said Benderspink principal Jc Spink. »
