Martin Scorsese's raucous biopic The Wolf of Wall Street hit theaters on Christmas Day 2013. As a wild antidote to family-friendly films, it became a massive hit - Scorsese's biggest to date - and scored five Oscar nominations (and deserved at least one more for Margot Robbie). Controversy has followed it ever since then for its extreme content, its depiction of greedy monsters and the source of its funding.
While Paramount already released a solid Blu-ray in 2014, the film is finally getting a 4K upgrade, with a new transfer supervised by Scorsese. Although that appears to be the only improvement. The 5.1 soundtrack will remain, and no new special features will be included. However, the legacy bonus content remains intact. Limited edition Steelbook packaging will be available for those collectors.
