Paramount Home Media Distribution announced today that Martin Scorsese's epic tale of greed and debauchery 'The Wolf of Wall Street" will debut on Digital HD March 18th and on Blu-ray/DVD/VOD March 25th. The film, nominated for 5 Academy Awards (including Best Picture, Director, and Actor), stars Leonardo DiCaprio as real-life stockbroker Jordan Belfore, who engaged in securities fraud while living a life of drug-fueled excess.
"The Wolf of Wall Street" may be the most critically acclaimed of Scorsese's five collaborations with DiCaprio, including even "The Departed," which won the Best Picture Oscar. The film's raw depiction of Dionysian excess proved controversial, but audiences saw the three-hour film in droves, making it the legendary Scorsese's highest-grossing film ever.
The film will be available in a Blu-ray Combo Pack with Digital HD and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film featuring interviews with DiCaprio and Scorsese, as well as on a single-disc DVD. It also features a digital download of the film in Ultraviolet format. The suggested retail price of the combo pack is $39.99.
The behind-the-scenes extra, titled "The Wolf Pack," features interviews with Scorsese, DiCaprio and Jonah Hill (who was also Oscar-nominated) about the making of the film.
