'The Wolf Of Wall Street' Finally Gets Official Release Date & A New Trailer

Thanks to various intervening forces, the release date of Martin Scorsese's next picture - the Leonardo DiCaprio-starring The Wolf of Wall Street - has been in contention for some time now. At first, it was due out on 15 November, but was pushed back for an unspecified period, with some estimates putting it as far back as spring 2014. Fortunately, we'll only have to wait just over a month longer to see the film, when it is released on 25 December.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount decided on the new date after heads at the company saw a shortened version of the film, with the running time cut from 180 minutes to 165 minutes. The studio bosses had initially put back the release in order to give director Scorsese ample time to trim away some of the fat, and he apparently unveiled the finished product this week. Content with how the film played out despite missing a few scenes, they decided to okay the film and set a 2013 release, which will also put it in contention for next years awards season.

The movie follows former bad boy of Wall Street Jordan Belfort and his rise to the top of the stock market, which was followed by an almighty crash and a lengthy prison term over counts of stock market manipulation and running a penny stock boiler room. The Oscar contender stars, alongside DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler and Cristin Milioti.

Along with the news that the release of the film is imminent, we were also treated to an all new trailer, which you can view below. In it, we hear Leo narrate over the short, swift rise to the top by Belfort and his team, and how their wreckless earning and spending soon found them in trouble with the law and on an almight fall to the bottom.
