Trailer for “The Wolf of Wall Street”

Martin Scorsese’s next movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, a very successful stockbroker in the 1990s. Yes, the entire trailer (expertly cut to the catchiest song on “Yeezus” [By far? By far]) basically screams “Goodfellas, But On Wall Street,” which is obviously a good thing because this looks pretty damn great? This looks pretty damn great.

Scorsese discovers iMovie, raises his prodigious eyebrows

NEW YORK—Filmmaker Martin Scorsese went to a free iMovie demonstration at the Apple Store Wednesday, attentively watching the tutorial for the video-editing software from a front-row seat, sources reported.

Scorsese, who won the 2006 Academy Award for best director, reportedly interrupted the presentation more than a dozen times to ask questions about importing footage, creating on-screen titles, and adding sound effects. According to Apple Store employees, the 67-year-old film legend regularly jotted down notes on a yellow legal pad while the moderator demonstrated the step-by-step process for creating movies on a Macintosh.

“Importing, editing, post-production—they got it all on the computer,” said Scorsese, who arrived 20 minutes early for the in-store workshop. “I like it. You can make your pictures right on there, it’s tremendous.”
