Bonus Features: ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ makes the jump to 4K
When you think of Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s hard not to think of “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Sure, he’s the “Titanic” superstar, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” icon Rick Dalton, and an Oscar-winner for “The Revenant,” but no performance has been more defining for the actor than his turn as Jordan Belfort.
The 2013 Martin Scorsese masterpiece brought out the best of DiCaprio, with a go-for-broke performance as the power-hungry stockbroker-turned-criminal. Nominated for five Academy Awards, “The Wolf of Wall Street” was one of the best films of the year, and now eight years later it’s finally coming home on 4K Ultra HD.
With a film transfer supervised by Scorsese himself, the quality of the new 4K rendition is exceptional, on both the physical and digital copies. However, those interested in new bonus content for the film will likely come away disappointed, considering the only three extras are previously released featurettes.
Let’s take a look!
Special Features on 4K Ultra HD and Digital
- The Wolf Pack (HD) – Jam packed with behind-the-scenes footage, this 17-minute featurette led by DiCaprio features interviews with nearly every player, from cast and crew to Scorsese himself. It’s nothing revolutionary as far as new information goes, but it’s still fun nonetheless, as everyone involved praises the production.
- Running Wild (HD) – This movie is not for the faint of heart. From the profanity to the nudity, drugs, alcohol and overall debauchery, “The Wolf of Wall Street” lives up to its ferocious title. This 11-minute extra explores the extreme content involved in the film, with interviews with DiCaprio, Scorsese and Co. breaking down some of its most outrageous moments.
- “The Wolf of Wall Street” Round Table (HD) – Another 11-minute extra, this discussion features DiCaprio, Scorsese, co-star Jonah Hill, and writer Terence Winter, as the four dive into the process of crafting the film.
“The Wolf of Wall Street” releases on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on December 14, 2021.
