Martin Scorsese’s three hour biopic and possibly quaalude-induced hallucination “The Wolf of Wall Street” is the top release this week. The film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio in one of his most dynamic roles, may be long, but it never overstays its welcome. As always, retailer exclusives abound. The limited Steelbook combo pack will be available exclusively at Target, while a bonus disc with over 20 minutes of exclusive footage will be included with specially marked copies of the film at Best Buy.
Also seeing release is Ken Scott’s “Delivery Man,” an American remake of his own French-Canadian film “Starbuck.” The film, starring Vince Vaughn, was far from a hit at the box office and reviews are mixed. It’s unlikely to find much of an audience in home release.
Prehistoric pseudo-documentary/family film “Walking With Dinosaurs” releases in both 2D and 3D combo packs. Named after an actual documentary which aired on BBC, the film has been hailed for its visuals and derided for everything else.
Paramount will also be re-releasing a slew of films in Steelbook form. Highlights from this group include: “The Ring,” “Cloverfield,” and "Shutter Island."
