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.

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.

With its three hours of wall-to-wall sex, drugs and greed, Martin Scorsese and Leonard DiCaprio's "The Wolf of Wall Street" has sparked debate over its artistic merit , polarized audiences and even caused a minor row at an academy screening. But at the freewheeling Golden Globe Awards ceremony Sunday night, all that bad behavior provided something else--ample material for wisecracks and one-liners. Though the film won just one award, a best actor in a comedy or musical for Leonardo DiCaprio, its presence loomed much larger.

Is it morality or aesthetics that drove down the CinemaScore of “The Wolf of Wall Street”? Or, put more simply, why exactly did people seem to dislike “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Martin Scorsese's jamboree of sex, drugs and money that opened on, gulp, Christmas Day. Though the freewheeling film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the finance-world nihilist Jordan Belfort, took in a solid $9.1 million on its first day in theaters, the...

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)
