We got a new peek at Martin Scorsese’s dark comedy The Wolf of Wall Street earlier this week and now more images have come in, thanks to Paramount. Seen above and below, we get a new glimpse at Leonardo DiCaprio as stockbroker Jordan Belfort as well as his cohort, played by Jonah Hill. The director recently spoke with NEH regarding the project, saying “in the case of The Wolf of Wall Street, the humor comes out of their enjoyment. They ’re doing bad things, and there’s a tension that I hope to get with the audience itself, as they find themselves maybe enjoying some of what these guys are doing and checking themselves for that. What’s in us that makes us enjoy this?”
He went on to say, “In some movies, the place is much more internal. On this picture, The Wolf of Wall Street, there’s only one scene on Wall Street. They work out of Long Island in the town of Lake Success. What do you really see? You see them. It’s their faces and their behavior. They could be in this room. They could be in the street. They could be in a restaurant. They could be on a plane. They could be in Geneva, which is one scene. If you can make $21 million in an hour and a half on the phone, you’re not going to be worried about where you are or what the people around you are thinking.”
Paramount also unveiled new photos from their Cannes hit, Alexander Payne‘s black-and-white drama Nebraska. Seen below, one can check out Will Forte and Bruce Dern as the father and son duo who embark on a cross-country journey after the latter believes he’s won a sweepstakes. Lastly, Venice Film Festival have released a new photo from Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, which is finally premiering there (and showing up at Telluride and TIFF) and follows Scarlett Johansson as an alien. There’s no U.S. distribution yet, but one can see the new image below. Also, if you want to see more from Scorsese, check out a recently uploaded, 50-minute discussion with the director from 2003.
Which of the above films are you most looking forward to?
