EXCLUSIVE: After weeks of speculation that Martin Scorsese's "Wolf of Wall Street" wouldn't hit theaters until 2014, the financial drama will arrive on Christmas Day and thrust a late entrant into the Oscar race, say three people close to the film. But in the process, the Paramount release will likely bump the Tom Clancy reboot "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," which Paramount has scheduled to open the same day, to early 2014. "Wolf of Wall Street," adapted from Jordan Belfort's memoir about his meteoric rise and fall as a trader in the 1980s and '90s, was originally set to open Nov. 15, but Scorsese and longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker have not yet finished the movie, and making that date has long been considered impossible.

Paramount Pictures had to wait a few extra months for Martin Scorsese to deliver a final cut of his upcoming "The Wolf of Wall Street," but a new trailer for the film indicates the delay may have been worth it. The studio this week confirmed it was pushing the picture's release date from Nov. 15 to Christmas Day after Scorsese finally handed over a 165-minute version of the film. But any last-minute scurrying wasn't evident from the film's new trailer, which compellingly conveys the movie's narrative. "Wolf" is based on the real-life story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio)

Thank you for including "Farewell, Leader of the Pack" in your Jan. 13 editorial pages. This warm, sensitive tribute to one of our fellow Earth mates has made my day happier. I am not an animal rights activist. I simply appreciate nature and all her creatures that share this beautiful Earth. While saddened by [the wolf] No. 2's defeat in his valiant fight to live, these few paragraphs are a heart-warming testimony to his life. Long may his genes live. Dorothy A.

The Nov. 28 article, "Alaska Starts Aerial Wolf Hunt," left out three crucial points. One, Alaska Gov. Frank Murkowski ignored the wishes of 70% of Alaska's voters to protect the wolves from aerial hunts. Two, the hunts are carried out in a cruel way in which the wolves are chased down to the point of exhaustion and collapse, then they are shot at point-blank range. And three, the "effort to boost the moose and caribou population" has nothing to do with protecting these species; it's to ensure a large enough population to appease the hunting lobby, which brings millions of dollars.

The 1950s gave us the Rat Pack. The ‘80s, the Brat Pack. These days, the Wolf Pack is roaming the film scene. Although the "Twilight" franchise may have helped spur the vampire craze with the Cullen brood, the saga's gang of shape-shifters is bringing sexy back to werewolves. And in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," which hits theaters June 30, that's no different. "The Cullens are very reserved," said Alex Meraz, who plays Wolf Pack member Paul. "They're vampires, but they're not out killing people.

Nearly 200 years after Charles Darwin wondered how a fox-looking wolf came to live on South American islands hundreds of miles from the mainland, scientists think they have the answer. The Falkland Islands wolf, the only land animal believed to have occupied the Falkland Islands before it was hunted into extinction in the 19 th century, trekked to its final home over ice sheets during the last ice age, researchers concluded. The wolf, Dusicyon australis , became isolated from its sister species, Dusicyon avus, on the South America mainland about 16,000 years ago, according to the study published Tuesday in Nature Communications.

Leonardo DiCaprio couldn't quite give up the lavish lifestyle of Jay Gatsby. In the newly released trailer for "The Wolf of Wall Street," we see similar themes in the stories, though "Wolf" is set in the 1990s, about 70 years after the Roaring '20s world of "Gatsby. " The film, directed by Martin Scorsese, follows Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), a fast-talking money-hungry 26-year-old financier, who boldly says in the trailer, "The year I turned 26, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.

Tyler, the Creator is back. Wary perhaps of being outdone by his Odd Future pal Frank Ocean -- who performed and picked up a pair of prizes at the Grammy Awards earlier this week -- the attention-loving L.A. rapper announced Thursday that he'll release a new album, "Wolf," on April 2 through Odd Future Records. He revealed the news in a characteristically memorable YouTube video we can't show you here due to some naughty language. (Shocking!) The follow-up to 2011's "Goblin," which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the semi-hit "Yonkers," "Wolf" is set to arrive bearing three different covers, one featuring art by the painter Mark Ryden.

There seemed to be two huge developments in the "Child of the Moon" episode of "Once Upon a Time," but neither of them had anything to do with the Ruby/Little Red Riding Hood main story line that dominated the show. The first was at the beginning. The dwarfs, continuing to work in the mines as they try to find fairy dust, actually decide to knock off for a drink at Granny's. Grumpy, never the social butterfly, wants to continue working -- and that persistence pays off as he discovers the crystals/diamonds that are used to make fairy dust.

A Bedouin shepherdess stabbed to death a wolf that attacked her, the newspaper Okaz reported Thursday. Okaz said the wolf surprised Umm Rajnan as she was tending her flock near a desert village about 125 miles from the city of Medina. As the wolf began attacking her sheep, Umm Rajnan slipped into her tent and grabbed a large knife, the newspaper said. When the wolf jumped at her, she stabbed it repeatedly until it fell dead at her feet, Okaz said.
