This Supercut Of Fake Movie Ads Is Pure Greatness
Product placement has become an unfortunately big part of modern studio filmmaking, but there are some ads in movies that we can still appreciate: the fake ones. Rather than actually trying to tell us something, they merely exist as a fun gag or even sometimes as a plot device. And now you can see a whole bunch of them mashed together in this fantastic new supercut.

Watch This Brilliant Glengarry Glen Ross And Wolf Of Wall Street Trailer Splice
The Wolf Of Wall Street is the film that will not die, and this latest trailer re-cut marries the first trailer's use of Kanye West with another bunch of cutthroats armed with telephones and vulgarity. Not only is Glengarry Glen Ross a perfect thematic cousin to Scorsese's Wolf, it also lends itself really well to quick cuts, a driving beat, and some entertaining shouting. Watch for yourself within the link.

This Week In Home Entertainment: The Wolf Of Wall Street, Veep And More
Martin Scorsese’s latest big screen endeavor is a lesson in excess, a depraved two-hour business film filled with drugs, more drugs and people behaving very selfishly with little remorse. The Wolf of Wall Street is about turning penny stocks into big profit, but at its heart, it’s about the lengths people will go to in order to feel on top of the world.

Wolf Of Wall Street Is Now Martin Scorsese's Highest-Grossing Film
Most impressive is the fact that Wolf runs a hefty 180 minutes, usually reducing the number of screenings that theaters can program in a given day. But the film also carried a hefty $100 million budget… which almost prevented Wolf from getting made in the first place.

This Dutch Wolf Of Wall Street Poster Is Probably The Weirdest Thing I've Ever Seen
I love movie posters. A lot. Other people get excited about trailers. I get excited about movie posters.

Is This The Year That Leonardo DiCaprio Should Win His Oscar?
Leonardo DiCaprio has been chasing the Oscar dream since he was 20 years old. His first nomination came thanks to his supporting role as a mentally handicapped child in 1994’s What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, and since then he has been nominated two more times - for lead roles in both The Aviator and Blood Diamond. But each time the star’s potential moment in the Oscar spotlight has come, it has gone by just as quickly.

From the sight of Jonah Hill's ridiculously shiny white teeth to breaking the fourth wall to an absolutely perfect use of the song "Hang You From The Heavens" by The Dead Weather, there is absolutely nothing I don't love about this trailer. Much like the debut spot that first came out back in June - which thumped to the beat of Kanye West - the energy in this movie looks like it is totally off the charts, and - even more amazingly - it looks absolutely hilarious.

While Scorsese fans started panicking about the movie when they noticed that it wasn't being listed for any of the fall's big film festivals, rumors of a more serious delay for the project began in late September when it was reported that a cut version of the film was over three hours long and was looking at a potential NC-17 rating.
