At the “Wolf of Wall Street” premiere last night, the stars on the red carpet were hotter than the investment tips. Considering the movie tells the story of a convicted stock swindler, that was a good thing.
Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which uses the f-word more than any feature film ever made, was cut by a quarter in the Dubai and other Gulf nation versions for multiple scenes depicting drug use and sex.
Sony Corp.’s “American Hustle” captured three Golden Globes, most of any film, while “12 Years a Slave” took home the award for best drama, confirming its status as leading contender for the best-picture Oscar.
“American Hustle,” a retelling of a 1970s FBI sting, was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including best picture, tying the space thriller “Gravity” as Hollywood prepared to hand out its highest honors.
“Lone Survivor,” a military drama based on a 2005 Navy SEAL operation in Afghanistan, topped U.S. and Canadian theaters this past weekend, collecting $37.8 million for Comcast Corp.’s Universal Pictures.
