Here is what he had to say:

Hollywood has always had a peculiar way of treating its artists. Usually after celebrating an initial spark of genius, the studios, media, or loyal fans often watch the once promising talent fizzle out with a bang, or more times, with a quiet whimper. Either way, it remains a difficult feat to stay relevant in Hollywood. Martin Scorsese is an example of the rare filmmaker who has been working for over forty years and continues to challenge himself while keeping audiences on their toes.

Over the past ten years Scorsese has released five films, four of which have gone on to be big Oscar contenders (Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, and Hugo). This year marks the release of his latest Oscar hopeful, The Wolf of Wall Street. After Scorsese »

Calvary was recently confirmed to make its world premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The Guard director John Michael McDonagh reunites with his brilliant lead Brendan Gleeson in this darkly comic story of a priest who finds himself threatened during a private confession and is unsure what to do or even take it serious.
I’m a huge fan of the Irish actor from everything from big blockbusters like Braveheart and Gangs Of New York to indie gems The General and I Went Down. Of course, most will remember him for the Harry Potter franchise and the awesome In Bruges.
The superb supporting cast is filled with hilarious familiar faces with the likes of Chris O’Dowd and Dylan Moran lending their perfect dry Irish humour to the film also starring Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen and Marie-Josée Croz.

Martin Scorsese, one of the most beloved and prolific American directors in cinema history and a champion of film preservation, may only have a couple more films left in his oeuvre.
During a Q&A at the Marrakech Film Festival, a journalist asked Scorsese what future projects he desires to make. The filmmaker responded with the following:
“Desire? Yes, I have the desire to make many films, but as of now I’m 71 and there’s only a couple more left if I get to make them. I miss the time when I had the desire to experiment and try different kinds of films, I miss that time, but that’s done, it’s over. There is obligation as you get older, you have family. I’ve been very lucky in the last 10 years or so, to have found projects that combine the desire, the subject matter—from The Aviator to now—with, »

Us director credits Leonardo DiCaprio as source of inspiration but looks to make only a 'couple more' films
• Watch the trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese has said he expects to retire after making a "couple more" movies.
Speaking over the weekend at the Marrakech film festival, where he was acting as jury president, the Oscar-winning director also revealed he had been reinvigorated by working with Leonardo DiCaprio on their series of five films. The pair's latest collaboration, The Wolf of Wolf Street, has just been completed in time for an awards season run ahead of the Oscars in March.

With two unforgettable trailers out, The Wolf of Wall Street is one of the year's most anticipated movies, and it's also one of the longest. The Martin Scorsese drama clocks in at two hours and 59 minutes, a lengthy runtime even for the most diehard movie buffs. We're no stranger to long movies, and this got us thinking about other crazy-long films, many of which seem to feature one Leonardo DiCaprio. Here's how some films stack up against The Wolf of Wall Street's almost three-hour runtime and some activities that put their lengths into perspective. Titanic: 3 hours, 4 minutes (5 minutes longer than The Wolf of Wall Street) How bad are your teeth? Because this is the time it takes to get four root canals. Cloud Atlas: 2 hours, 52 minutes (7 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street) You could watch four episodes of Breaking Bad on Netflix and still have »

Martin Scorsese has hinted that his filmmaking career may be nearing its end.
The director said that while he has the desire to continue to make movies, he realises that he only has "a couple more" left in him.
Speaking at a Q&A at the Marrakech Film Festival, Scorsese said: "I have the desire to make many films, but as of now I'm 71 and there's only a couple more left if I get to make them.

"Working together re-ignited my enthusiasm for making pictures. There's always something more, there's always more to mine with him. He keeps going deeper and deeper," hollywoodreporter.com quoted Scorsese as saying.
"Leo's enjoyment of the work and the ability to take chances made me excited again. 'Gangs of New York' was a massive project and had been for many, many years, and I was depleted after that. And 'Aviator' was the one where he pulled me back. »

The team up of Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese and his handsome muse Leonardo DiCaprio has always impressed critics. From their first project Gangs Of New York to their latest, The Wolf Of Wall Street; award consideration is never too far away. Having heard the latter, running at almost to three hours long, has just scraped through a rating process with an R (apparently it was so close to receiving that dreaded Nc-17 moniker), we’re desperate to see what craziness the couple have in store this time…
The Wolf Of Wall Street is adapted by the same-titled bio of Jordan Belfort by acclaimed Sopranos/Boardwalk Empire writer/creator Terence Winter. It sees DiCaprio as the rising young financial hot-shot whose hard partying lifestyle and excessive drug abuse saw him taking too many risks in his profession. Later becoming mixed-up in money laundering and security fraud that ultimately saw him convicted »

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 »

Thought we'd had our final new addition to the enormous ensemble of Game of Thrones for its upcoming fourth season? Well think again. According to fan site WinterIsComing, ten year old Octavia Selena Alexandru (Ward 3, D'ora) has joined the cast of the hit HBO fantasy series as the Child of the Forest, which seems to indicate that the upcoming season will draw upon George R.R. Martin's fifth book A Dance with Dragons as well as the second half of A Storm of Swords.
Along with Alexandru, the upcoming season will also feature Yuriy Kolokolnikov (Intimate Parts) as Styr, Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) as Tycho Nestoris, Roger Ashton-Griffiths (Gangs of New York) as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal (Graceland) as Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma (Rome) as Ellaria Sand, Struan Rodger (Doctor Who) as the Three-Eyed Raven, Michiel Huisman (Nashville) as Daario Naharis, Dean Charles-Chapman (The White Queen) as Tommen Baratheon, »

There are plenty of amazing mustaches in movie history, and in honor of Movember, we thought we'd list our ten all-time favorites. From the thin hipster ‘stache, to the handlebar, to the walrus, take a look at the best soup strainers to ever grace the silver screen.
10. Kip’s pencil ‘stache in Napoleon Dynamite
Why does Lafawnduh love Aaron Ruell's Kip always and forever? It's true that he has mad skills when it comes to chatting with babes online, but far more importantly, he has some truly incredible face lace. That has to be the reason he got the girl in the end. Kip proves that the shortest route to a happily ever after is a straight line — right above your upper lip.

Lost and Found (the book) rocketed to favorite status in my house, and there have rarely been children’s books that have so quickly taken hold in the collective consciousness.
Finally available on DVD, the animated adaptation, winner of numerous awards already, manages to deliver the story of a boy and his penguin in a way that is difficult to believe.
Narrated wonderfully by Jim Broadbent, and with a cheery and somehow cunning musical score, the film pulls at audiences with same ability as the book, which is a feat that is often hoped for, and almost never actualized.
Brilliant in its simplicity, like the book, Lost and Found is a departure from the din of motion and attention grabs that plague all things aimed at children these days. It relies instead on fundamental situations and ideas, and doesn’t need to be overt in what it’s getting at. »

"Leonardo DiCaprio is a very serious young actor, he takes it quite seriously. I knew he had something when I saw him read. So even though Leonardo DiCaprio has taken my place in Marty's (Martin Scorsese) movies, I'm apparently the go-to guy in handing out the hardware," De Niro said in. »

Production is already well underway on the fourth season of Game of Thrones but that hasn't stopped showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss from adding what surely must be one last addition to the already-enormous ensemble cast for season four, with EW revealing that Russian actor Yuri Kolokolnikov will portray Styr, the leader of the Wilding tribe the Thenn.
Bizarrely, Joseph Gatt (Banshee) had previously been announced as the character, so it remains to be seen whether Gatt is portraying someone else, or if he's been replaced in the cast. Either way Kolokolnikov becomes the latest newcomer to the epic fantasy series, where he'll be joined by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) as Tycho Nestoris, Roger Ashton-Griffiths (Gangs of New York) as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal (Graceland) as Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma (Rome) as Ellaria Sand, Struan Rodger (Doctor Who) as the Three-Eyed Raven, Michiel Huisman (Nashville) as Daario Naharis, Dean Charles »

Having confirmed its eligibility for the Oscar race by securing a Christmas release date, Paramount Pictures has now dropped a new trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, the latest collaboration between director Martin Scorsese and star Leonardo Dicapario, and you can check it out right here after the official synopsis....
"Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). 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 was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough."

The combination of Doris Kearns Goodwin and Steven Spielberg seemed to work out for Lincoln. Oscars were won, audiences became weepy-eyed, and Daniel Day-Lewis got to strut around with a big bushy beard. Now DreamWorks is looking to go two for two with the same creative combo – the studio has just picked up the rights to Goodwin’s “The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism.” The book (which comes out next week) details the long and fruitful friendship between Roosevelt and Taft, and how their beautiful bromance was cracked in two when both men desired the presidential nomination in 1912. And while Spielberg might not be attached to direct (at least not yet, anyway), he’ll be involved in some capacity. The Wrap has Spielberg exclaiming his admiration for Goodwin: “Doris has once again given us the best seats in the house where we can watch two dynamic American personalities in »
