This weekend Jonah Hill is hosting Saturday Night Live, which means he’s been hanging around 30 Rock all week writing sketches and whatnot. It also means paying a visit to the set of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and doing some Oscar-campaigning for The Wolf of Wall Street was as easy as hopping on an elevator, so last night that’s exactly what the two-time Academy Award nominee did—he hopped on an elevator and had a little chat with Jimmy Fallon.
Of course, Fallon will soon be taking over the legendary Tonight Show brand from Jay Leno, which means moving up an hour to the coveted 11:30 time slot. And I don’t know if Hill felt like this was the last chance he had to tell his dirtiest and most disgusting stories, or what, but he sure as hell told a doozy about getting hilaaariously molested by Joe Pesci on the red carpet at the Wolf of Wall Street premier.
Watch the clip if you want to hear the whole story. If you just want to skip straight to the part about Jonah Hill getting a prostate exam, skip to the three-minute part.
If you don’t know who Margot Robbie is yet, besides hearing her name in Will Smith scandal rumors, then you’re about to never forget her name. The young Aussie soap star is now making her way into American television and movies, most notably as the sexual conquest of Leo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, getting press for, if nothing else, being a hard-R rated sex and drugs and F-word romp. Read that as, my kind of film.
Margot appears topless or in lingerie or bathing suits or various showy wardrobe throughout the film. Of course, topless is where we most lust her true faptastic Dow Under talents. We admire any legit actress who takes her clothes off for her art; if she happens to be as ridiculously hot as Margot Robbie, we don’t just admire, we carefully cover our midsections and stand in ovation. Margot Robbie, you will not soon (never) be forgotten. Enjoy.
You don’t have to look too hard to find somebody complaining about The Wolf of Wall Street out there on the internet. Whether it’s the supposed glorification of hedonism and greed, the graphic female nudity, the sheer volume of f-bombs, or the fact that Jonah Hill is in it, the film’s pretty much got something for everybody not to like.
So what does the film’s director, Martin Scorsese, think about all the criticism? Well, in a nutshell, he’s not losing too much sleep over it.
Scorsese recently sat down for a little web chat with Tom O’Neil, editor of Gold Derby, and the renowned director basically says that while it can be frustrating, he’s ultimately just happy people are talking about the film at the time of it’s release, because that means he’s touched on something that matters.
If you’re a real film junkie, you’ll want to check out the entire interview, which goes on for about 15 minutes. If you’re a casual filmgoer, meh, just watch the first couple of minutes, then go back to looking at pictures of hot babes.
Martin Scorcese is no stranger to controversy. After all, this is the man who made The Last Temptation of Christ, which pissed off a lot of people. However, Last Temptation was made a long time ago. Reagan was in office, we still feared the commies, and there was no internet to corrupt our morality with countless pictures of—uh hem—nekkid ladies. You wouldn’t think Marty could do much to shock people these days. But then The Wolf of Wall Street came along—a picture about greed and hedonism with tons of graphic sexual content and excessive drug use—and, sure enough, people were shocked.
Some say the film “glamorizes” hedonism, while others just don’t like all the swearing. But either way, fair or unfair, there’s been some criticism. And that criticism certainly isn’t going to let up now that The Wolf of Wall Street is officially the most vulgar non-fiction mainstream (i.e., non-porn) movie of all-time.
What do I mean by “most vulgar”? I mean Wolf has more f-bombs than any other movie in history—at least according to a new list on Wikipedia. The f word appears in the film in one shape or form a whopping 506 times in 179 minutes. That works out to 2.83 f-bombs per minute, or one every 21 seconds.
Congratulations, Mr. Scorsese. You’re a world record holder!
What would happen if somebody took the Frank Capra Christmas Classic It’s a Wonderful Life and gave it a brand new trailer in the style the highly anticipated Martin Scorses picture The Wolf of Wall Street? You would be overcome with awesomeness, that’s what would happen.
Well, friends, such a trailer actually exists thanks to self-described comedian, writer, actor, filmmaker, and semi-pro rock skipper Owen Weber. He took all the frenetic, visceral cuts of the Wolf of Wall Street trailer—plus Kanye West’s haunting, pulsating ode to Marilyn Manson—and applied the same style to the quintessential Christmas movie. The result, The Wolf of Bedford Falls, looks like a dark film about greed, lust, and power.
It’s really quite a fun experiment. You can completely transform a movie using nothing but music and clever edits.
The Wolf of Wall Street hits theaters Christmas Day.
All that’s missing in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street trailer is Leo DiCaprio face down in a mountain of blow Tony Montana style. Other than that, it’s got everything one need to celebrate the excess and depravity of early 90s Wall Street.
Let’s see, there are wild parties, yachts, wads of cash taped to half-nekkid women, lingerie’d babes traipsing indiscriminately, little-person tossing, naked marching bands, and a monkey in a suit…on roller skates. Everything. The Wolf of Wall Street will tell the real-life story of Jordan Belfort the notorious stockbroker who boiler-roomed his way to millions and refuses to play ball with the FBI. Things we’re stoked about? Other than Scorsese’s direction, it was written by Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire scribe Terence Winter.
Oh, and the bikinis. We want to see the bikinis. Because, who doesn’t?
