Marrakech — Traditionally known for its thick French accent, Marrakech’s glamorous opening night, held on Friday at the Congress Palace, had a definite Hollywood flavor with Sharon Stone getting a career tribute, as well as jury president Martin Scorsese and fellow members Marion Cotillard and Patricia Clarkson, among others international guests.
“It’s good to be home again here in Marrakech. I’ve made two features here. It’s also a precious moment for cinema, as you can tell from the roster of guests – there are so many talents in attendance this year,” said Scorsese, after being welcomed on stage with a long standing ovation.
Marrakech’s opening night gathered the jury members: directors Paolo Sorrentino, Amat Escalante (“Heli”), Anurag Kashyap (“Ugly”), Park Chan-wook (“Oldboy”), Fatih Akin (“New York, I Love You”) and Narjiss Nejjar (“Les yeux secs”), thesps Golshifteh Farahani, Elsa Zylberstein, Tahar Rahim and Francois Cluzet, Cesar Academy »

Ben and Gabe Turner's football documentary The Class of 92 puts Manchester United's treble-winning team of 1999 under the microscope, specifically the six players - David Beckham, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs - who graduated from the club's youth academy and became some of the most decorated players the English game has ever seen.
Simply put, the Turners' film is funny and moving - essential viewing for football fans. Contributions from the likes of Tony Blair and Danny Boyle put the time period of The Class of 92 into a wider cultural context, but at its heart this is a Stand by Me-like tale of six young friends growing up together and sharing many ups and downs.
With The Class of 92 on the horizon, Digital Spy takes a look at eight soccer stories that could make incredible movies...

The Family, 2013.
Directed by Luc Besson.
The Manzoni family, a notorious mafia clan, is relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program, where fitting in soon becomes challenging as their old habits die hard.
Once one of the most influential directors to break into Hollywood from Europe, filmmaker Luc Besson is now more recognisable as a producer of low to mid budget B movie action trash like Taken and The Transporter, but he has made some fantastic films as a director. The Family is not one of them; in fact, it’s the worst film of his I’ve seen by quite some margin.
Tired, lifeless, predictable, and utterly without purpose, Besson’s film is a cluster of clichés with maybe 45 minutes worth of story stretched over 100 minutes. Telling the story of the Blakes, »

Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby might only be the second-most wild, decadent party of 2013, if recent news about Martin Scorsese’s upcoming The Wolf of Wall Street is to be believed. The film, which will arrive this Christmas, was recently forced to make some cuts to avoid being slapped with an Nc-17 rating for excessive sex and nudity, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
If Scorsese is pushing the envelope with his highly-anticipated financial drama, it wouldn’t be a first for the director. Taxi Driver and The Last Temptation of Christ both courted considerable controversy at the times of their release with brutal violence and sexuality. The Wolf of Wall Street‘s protagonist, stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), lived a thoroughly hedonistic life throughout the ’80s and ’90s, consistently indulging in women, drugs and alcohol, so Scorsese will likely focus heavily on the character’s promiscuity in the film. »

Comfortably one of the most interesting-looking films of the Christmas season (even though we, er, don't get it in the UK until January) is Martin Scorsese's incoming The Wolf Of Wall Street. Reuniting him with Leonardo DiCaprio, the film tells the true story of Jordan Belfort, a stock broker in New York. There's an element of a rise and fall story here, but there's a bit more to it than that, which we won't talk about here in case you want to see the film cold.
What we can talk about though is the apparent battle that Scorsese has been having with the MPAA to get his final cut approved. Initially, The Wolf Of Wall Street was given an Nc-17 reason, »
The Wolf of Wall Street has been given an R rating, after several cuts were made to avoid the dreaded Nc-17 rating.
Insiders claim that Paramount and the MPAA's Classification and Ratings Administration Board had several exchanges about what changes needed to be made in order to secure an R rating. Director Martin Scorsese agreed to cut several scenes with nudity and sex.
The film has also been confirmed for a two hour and 59-minute run time, including credits, which makes this true story adaptation the filmmaker's longest movie ever, beating out Casino by just one minute. The drama was initially scheduled to open on November 15, although the studio delayed it after the run time was rumored to go well over three hours. After several cuts were made, Paramount issued a December 25 release date in October.
The MPAA has had a chance to weigh in on director Martin Scorsese’s latest film, and on first-look they warned the filmmaker that The Wolf of Wall Street was destined for an Nc-17 rating. THR reports that Scorsese “agreed to trim certain scenes of nudity and sex” in order to guarantee an R-rating for the darkly comic drama, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker in the 1990s. Rumors had been swirling for months that Scorsese’s no-holds-barred film ventured well into Nc-17 territory, but it appears that he and Paramount Pictures have made some edits in order to ensure that the pic can be seen by wide audiences. No doubt excessive violence is still A-ok for the MPAA, just as long as no one's naked—the horror! Additionally, THR confirms that the runtime of The Wolf of Wall Street is 2 hours and 59 minutes, which officially makes »

"Hey listen, I quit - I'm going into stocks." This looks so damn good! Paramount has debuted two new TV spots online for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, getting a marketing push to build buzz for its December release coming up soon. Early buzz from Darren Aronofsky is glowing: "hilarious, gutwrenching. @LeoDiCaprio fearless, brave, brilliant @JonahHill revelation. quaalude mayhem!" With Jonah Hill on the rise, the actor gets just as much time in these new TV spots as Leonardo DiCaprio. Based on that kind of buzz, it's a smart move. And it's working - I cannot wait to see this, even if it's almost 3 hours long. Enjoy! Here's the two latest TV spots for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, direct from YouTube: The Wolf of Wall Street is directed by legendary Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of everything from Taxi Driver to Raging Bull »

Last month Martin Scorsese had to make a decision on The Wolf Of Wall Street: push the film's release to next year or trim the running time. Scorsese's new movie will be out next month, so how much was cut from the film? Not as much as you'd think, according to the French site Allocine. The site is reporting The Wolf Of Wall Street will be 2 hours and 59 minutes long, and it will be the longest Martin Scorsese film to date, beating Casino by a single minute. The film »

Sandra Bullock is crowned Entertainer of the Year for 2013 by Entertainment Weekly. She is the first person in the 24-year history of the magazine to receive the honor twice (also in 2009). The title is for her starring roles in two hit films: the buddy comedy "The Heat" and Oscar contender "Gravity". Others in the top tier are the cast of "Breaking Bad", Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, and more. If the latest reports are true, the three-hour running time of "The Wolf of Wall Street" will make it the longest feature film in the career of Martin Scorsese. The next closest are "Casino" (2:58) and "The Aviator" (2:45). Opening on Christmas Day, the movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. Indiewire. The latest roundtable of awards contenders features six actresses: Amy Adams ("American Hustle"), Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave"), Julia Roberts ("August: Osage Count »
That would make it Scorsese's longest feature to date, topping the previous record held by his "Casino" by one minute. Scorsese's original cut of the film was said to run well over three hours.
New posters are also out for the film which you can see below:

The last we heard, director Martin Scorsese had to trim down his upcoming feature, The Wolf of Wall Street, to make it under 3 hours. Apparently, Paramount thought that the film was too long and asked the director to cut some scenes. He complied with their request and shortened it down to 2 hours and 45 minutes.
Today though, we’re hearing from Allocine that some additional footage has been thrown back in and the film will now run 2 hours and 59 minutes, making it the director’s longest feature to date. Not by much though. Casino came in at just one minute shorter (2 hours and 58 minutes) and The Aviator had a runtime of 2 hours and 50 minutes.
While 3 hours may seem like a long time, this news is music to my ears. I’ve been highly anticipating The Wolf of Wall Street for a while now (having loved the book that it’s based »

How much capitalist corruption and excess can one film hold? When the film's coming from Martin Scorsese, it could be as much as 2 hours and 59 minutes. We previously reported the runtime on The Wolf of Wall Street was 2 hours and 45 minutes, but France distributor Metropolitan Filmexport tells Allocine [via The Playlist] that the movie runs 179 minutes, which would get it just in under the 3-hour limit usually set by most studios. Early reports also said the film was Nc-17, so even with that material cut, there's still plenty left for the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) raiding Wall Street during the 1990s. If Allocine is correct, then the movie will be Scorsese's longest film to date, beating out Casino by one minute. I would advise against buying the large soft drink. The Wolf of Wall Street opens December 25th and stars Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, »

Ever hear a piece of news that made you tear up and cheer? Robert De Niro has confirmed that he is planning to reunite with Martin Scorsese for the first time since Casino almost two decades ago, and that's not all - the movie will be... you guessed it... a gangster film.
This is great news because Scorsese and De Niro have had an excellent run together, which includes the classic gangster films Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino. Even separately De Niro has Heat and The Godfather Part II and Scorsese has The Departed and Gangs of New York. This will be a return to familiar territory for both of them and once the project gets some steam there'll no doubt be plenty of buzz surrounding it.
For me, Goodfellas is not only the best movie ever made, but the one film I'd consider perfect. De Niro's movies haven't been »

Oliver Davis counts down the best ever casino films...
5. Ocean’s Eleven
It’s got more stars than a sky-gazing evening with Brian Cox, Ocean’s Eleven was a dream team-up movie with as-yet-unmatched ‘name’ power.
George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts…even Bernie Mac, the 2001 remake even surpassed Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.’s original. Flashy, Soderbergh-slick and with a twisting Las Vegas casino heist climax, Ocean’s Eleven was successful enough to spawn two sequels…which makes the current Ocean’s count around 36.
At the Casino Royale, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is up against Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) in a high-stakes game of poker. It’s so tense, the bad guy cries blood. Which is how all villains should weep.
The casino setting is a Bond movie staple, so it’s a smart convention to embrace for Craig’s first outing as the character. »

The actor and director were frequent collaborators in the '70s, '80s, and '90s, and many of their films are cited among the greatest of all time. That includes the gangster movies they made together -- "Mean Streets," "Goodfellas," and "Casino."
There've been rumbling in the last few years that De Niro and Scorsese intended to team up again for "The Irishman," about a Teamster boss/hitman who has ties to JFK and Jimmy Hoffa. The project hasn't moved forward much, but De Niro assures fans that it's happening ... someday.
"I have another gangster film I'm gonna do with Scorsese and it's a very interesting one." he said at a London press conference for his newest movie, "The Family."
"We're preparing it. We have a script and Marty has another film he's doing before so it won't be for a while. »
