Box Office: ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Poised to Cross $100 Mil Stateside

The Wolf of Wall Street

Oscar-nominated pic stands as Martin Scorsese's fourth-highest grossing film

Paramount has had a blast minting “fun coupons” for “Wolf of Wall Street” at the domestic box office.

Marking the fourth Oscar-nominated best picture nominee from 2013 to reach nine figures, Paramount’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” is poised to cross $100 million through Wednesday. Pic’s Stateside cume currently stands at $99.5 million.

“Wolf” is at the top of the Oscar pic nominees at the box office — behind Warner Bros.’ “Gravity,” which has cumed more than $260 million domestically, followed by Sony’s pair, “American Hustle” and “Captain Phillips,” with $128 million and $106 million, respectively.

The film received five nominations including pic, director (Martin Scorsese), actor (Leonardo DiCaprio), supporting actor (Jonah Hill) and adapted screenplay. Paramount released “Wolf” on Christmas Day, and so far, the film stands as Scorsese’s fourth-highest grossing movie behind “The Departed,” “Shutter Island” and “The Aviator” (soon to pass the latter).

“Wolf” still has some gas left in its tank: Last weekend, the film grossed $5.6 million in its fifth frame.

    3 hour films can be extremely profitable at the world wide box-office and not butchered the way the studio took an hour and a half out of Spike Lee’s OLDBOY remake from a directors cut of 3 hours down to a miserable 103 minutes or with John Woo’s 3 and a half hour cut of MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE 2 cut down by a whopping 90 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That type of damaging reediting only damaged the film and John Woo’s reputation with the worse reviewed movie in the franchise!!! Paramount can only make a killing with the 3 and a half hour cut released for home entertainment!!! A lot of 3 hour films have made huge box-office figures and studios along with cinemas should understand that films over 150 minutes have been profitable from THE DARK KNIGHT, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, TITANIC, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, AVATAR, WATCHMEN, INCEPTION and so many more. For the love of God release the directors cut of MI2!!!!!!!!!!!!
