The Wolf Of Wall Street Gets Christmas Release Date, Second Trailer

After weeks of uncertainty, Paramount has finally settled on a release date for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street, and it looks like the film will make the cut for 2013's crop of Oscar films after all... but just barely.

At the end of September, it was reported that the film was unlikely to be released in 2013 because the film wouldn't be ready, and certainly not its original November release date. It was thought that the film could only end up seeing a theatrical run early next year, much like the last time Leonardo DiCaprio and Scorsese teamed up for Shutter Island back in 2010, as well as George Clooney's Monuments Men, which recently got pushed back to the same Shutter Island release weekend after it was revealed that the film's visual effects and score wouldn't be ready for its December release.

Luckily, with Monuments Men off the table, that left a spot open for a Christmas release, and Paramount will be giving it to The Wolf Of Wall Street, now expected to just make the cut on December 25th, 2013, with Paramount's Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit moving back to January 17th, 2014, although with a nearly 3-hour run time, you might still be in the theater on New Year's before it's over. The film will now compete with 47 Ronin, Grudge Match, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, August: Osage County and maybe the best of the lot, the Justin Bieber documentary Believe.

Still, it's looking like it will certainly be an entertaining three hours, and the latest trailer is definitely proof, as was the previous trailer that we saw over the summer. This one has a little more Jonah Hill and a little less Matthew McConaughey, and that's fine, because Hill absolutely kills it and McConaughey has other things going for him anyway.

Check out the trailer below, and The Wolf Of Wall Street in theaters Christmas Day 2013, also starring Jean Dujardin, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, and Jon Favreau, among others.
