As a great space jam once asked, "Ya'll ready for this?" Just as Matthew McConaughey's guttural hype-up song was a delightful, unexpected addition to The Wolf of Wall Street, its Nsfw remix will be a great addition to your struggle to stay awake on Wednesday morning. Think of it as a searing indictment of the ostentatious excess of remix culture. Or not. It's good either way. »

For a character quirk that was never written into the original script, Matthew McConaughey’s now-infamous chest thump in The Wolf of Wall Street has clearly struck a chord — especially with the folks over at Eclectic Method who have taken it upon themselves to remix the rhythmic beat into an uptempo tune.
McConaughey’s chest thumping, laced with a dance rhythm, serves as the back beat for the remixed track, which also cuts in other sounds heavily used throughout the Martin Scorsese film.

The still-untitled drama explores the drug and sex-fueled music business of 1970s New York as punk and disco are on the rise. The show is seen through the eyes of Cannavale’s Richie Finestra, a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound. Wilde will play Devon Finestra, Richie’s wife and a former actress-model who re-immerses herself in her former Bohemian life when Richie’s crisis causes strain on their family.
Scorsese is attached to direct the pilot, which is penned by regular collaborator Terence Winter (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Boardwalk Empire”) and George Mastras (“Breaking Bad”) with Mastras serving as showrunner. All are exec producing, along with Jagger, Victoria Pearman, »

Though The Wolf of Wall Street may not have been a big winner at the 86th Academy Awards earlier this month, the film is still one of the best of 2013 (it was actually my favorite of the year). Martin Scorsese's latest film will hit Blu-Ray and DVD on March 25th, but someone has already had fun with the film in a bit of a weird way. By now we've all seen at least a part of Matthew McConaughey's chest bumping scene (which was turned into an Oscar brag against Leonardo DiCaprio), and someone decided to remix that into a song that wouldn't be out of place in the crazy world of cocaine and quaaludes in the film. Watch and listen! Here's the remix of Matthew McConaughey's chest bump from The Wolf of Wall Street via Gawker: The Wolf of Wall Street is directed by legendary Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, »

Togas-to-go and abs to die for atop the UK box office, while Grand Budapest Hotel books in a surprise third
• More from UK box office
Seven years after the original 300 film, and with Gerard Butler's slain character missing this time around, it was by no means certain that audiences had an appetite for second helpings. But backers Warners and Legendary Pictures will be plenty happy with the opening numbers for 300: Rise of an Empire in the Us and internationally. In the UK, the film, from director Noam Murro (Smart People) and starring Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), achieved a robust £2.76m debut. While that's well down on 300's opening salvo – £4.75m including previews of £784,000 – it's not bad for a film that seemed short of marketable elements other than the 300 brand name.
Rise of an Empire knocked The Lego Movie off the top spot after a three-week run. »

It broke per-screen averages last weekend — 9th all-time and 1st in limited — and with Wes Anderson’s delightful “The Grand Budapest Hotel” opening in more theaters at the end of this week, Fox Searchlight has released a couple of more trailers to move those tickets but not before Anderson has a thing or two to say about one of the more controversial films released last year. During a recent stop at Charlie Rose, Anderson was asked about his relationship with Martin Scorsese — a long-time admirer of Anderson since “Bottle Rocket,” and even penned an essay extolling Anderson’s virtues that was used in that film’s Criterion release — which lead to him gushing about the iconic director. In particular, Anderson singled out “The Wolf of Wall Street,” saying the controversial film was “so entertaining all the way through, you don’t even think about how big this thing is. How »

Many people were upset and disappointed this year when Leonardo DiCaprio lost his fourth and fifth Oscar (Best Actor and Best Picture for The Wolf of Wall Street which he also produced) this year to Matthew McConaughey. While I would have loved for him to win, I knew that it wasn't going to happen. The Academy tends to pick winners that make one excellent movie, like Jean Dujardin for The Artist, Halle Berry for Monster's Ball, rather than actors constantly producing knockout performances in every film. Sure, there are exceptions like Daniel Day-Lewis and Cate Blanchett, but they are rare. "Why give the gold to someone who will continue to create a career of golden performances even if they lose?" That's the Academy's mantra. I think we all know deep down that eventually Leo's Oscar curse will break and until then we will continue to watch and root for him. »

Twenty-five years after they memorably teamed for the epic “Lonesome Dove” miniseries, Robert Duvall and screenwriter Bill Wittliff have reunited for a much smaller-scale project: “A Night in Old Mexico,” a Tex-Mex-flavored shaggy-dog story that finds Duvall perfectly cast as a robustly cantankerous South Texas rancher determined to have one last fling south of the border. The film’s winning mix of broad humor, gruff sentiment and seriocomic caper-scenario elements should play best with an older demographic, although respectful reviews and favorable word of mouth could expand its appeal. North American theatrical and VOD rollout is set for May 13.
Making the absolute most of a vividly written role that fits him like a well-worn pair of boots, Duvall moseys through the proceedings at a deliberate but determined gait as Red Bovie, an aged cattle rancher who’s seriously peeved because the bank has seized his property, and plans to divide it into “ranchettes. »

The "Fast and the Furious" action franchise has never been an awards magnet, even at the blockbuster-friendly MTV Movie Awards. To date, the only award it has won at these kudos was Best On-Screen Team for Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for the first film in the series back in 2002. Walker was killed in a car accident last November. MTV has honored his memory by nominating him and Diesel for Best On-Screen Duo this year for "Fast and Furious 6." And it's looking they will win according to our predictions. -Break- Diesel and Walker lead our racetrack odds with 4/5 odds. They're followed by the team of Ice Cube and Kevin Hart ("Ride Along") with 4/1 odds, and close behind them are Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill ("The Wolf of Wall Street") with 9/2 odds. Walker wouldn't be the first posthumous winner at the MTV Movie Awards. Heath Ledger was named Best Villain in »
Moviegoers want sure bets. Tickets are expensive, theaters can be a hassle, and time is precious. So while some eager types may turn out in droves after a film is nominated for an Academy Award, nine Best Picture nominees can prove a daunting to-do list, and some might want to wait for the slate to be whittled down. That seemed to be the case this weekend, at least, when Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave more than doubled its theater count and boasted a 116 percent increase in earnings.
There are a lot of factors that make analysis tricky in this case. »

We knew Kellan Lutz was talented, but damn! The sexy Hercules star showed off some impressive acrobatic skills and his flawless physique while Flyboarding over the weekend in Phuket, Thailand, to celebrate the opening of the new Nikki Beach club and restaurant. The 28-year-old adrenaline junkie had no difficulty maneuvering the watercraft and managed several challenging moves with success. All those muscles definitely must have come in handy! The actor completed the weekend's awesome adventures with an elephant ride and party with Jean-Claude Van Damme. Lutz isn't the first celeb to tackle the Flyboard. The Wolf of Wall Street actor Leonardo DiCaprio gave it a shot »
Does Sam Claflin flex his acting muscles – or, well, his actual muscles – enough to win Best Shirtless Performance at the MTV Movie Awards? The answer may depend on how much of the squealing-teenage-girl vote is available now that "Twilight" is over. (Taylor Lautner won last year.) So far things are looking good for Claflin – and his odds aren't bad either. The 27-year-old joined the cast of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" as Finnick Odair and gets field-leading 4/11 odds for offering Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) a sugar cube while bare-chested. -Break- But to win he'll have to grapple (shirtless?) with a godly Chris Hemsworth ("Thor: The Dark World"), who ranks second with 6/1 odds; Leonardo DiCaprio, who is in various states of undress throughout "The Wolf of Wall Street" and gets 33/1 odds; and former teen star Zac Efron, all grown up and wearing very little in "That Awkward »

The cast of Entourage will present Wahlberg with the award, having served as executive producer for the show, which was loosely based on his life.

1. The McConnaissance has officially hit its peak.
It's now belaboring the obvious to state that Matthew McConaughey has morphed into one of the most interesting actors working today — an unpredictable phenomenon that we can carbon-date back to 2011 and his Rockford Files-esque turn in The Lincoln Lawyer. His career-resurgence modus operandi was simple: kiss off the typical leading-man roles that were slowly suffocating him and go moody (Mud), dowdy (Bernie), psycho-ugly (Killer Joe), or campy, where-are-my-bongos batshit-crazy (The Paperboy). Where once his two modes were open-shirted or altogether shirtless, McConaughey started »
A week ago the 86th Academy Awards wrapped up what was one of the closest Best Picture races in history. An awards season full of unexpected distractions, pretenders and results came to an end. Many in Hollywood could finally take a deep breath and exhale. No matter how long you've covered the game there is always something to learn over the course of a season. Here are a few lessons that have been percolating in the back of my mind, something to take into account as we (eventually) segue into the next Oscars campaign. And yes, it's really not that far away. Never doubt the Academy's resolve to do the right thing This past weekend I randomly caught up with two Oscar voters who volunteered that they voted for "Gravity" (although they did expect a "12 Years a Slave" outcome). It was a reminder that the vote was likely still as close as we thought, »

Sneak Peek Australian actress Margot Robbie, star of "The Wolf Of Wall Steet", in the March 2014 issue of "Elle" (Australia) magazine, plus take a look @ more Nsfw images and footage of her character 'Naomi Lapaglia' in director Martin Scorsese's film:
"...'Jordan Belfort' (Leonardo DiCaprio) narrates the film showing his monstrous success with his firm complete with ribaldry at work, a sumptuous home on the Gold Coast of Long Island and a trophy wife who is a former model.
"He then flashes back to 1987, where he began a low-level job at an established 'Wall Street' firm. His boss (Matthew McConaughey) advises him to adopt a lifestyle of casual sex and cocaine to succeed.
"However, shortly after he passes his exam to become a certified stockbroker, he loses his job.
"Now unemployed in an economy that is unaccomodating to stockbrokers and sufficiently discouraged to consider a new line of work, »
