One of the most acclaimed films of 2013, The Wolf of Wall Street is coming to home video on March 25th in the form of a Blu-Ray+DVD Combo Pack. Both formats will feature the theatrical release of the film, while the Blu-Ray will also contain The Wolf Pack – a featurette in which ‘Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and other cast and crew discuss the incredible journey of making the film.’

The latest Martin Scorsese/Leonardo DiCaprio collaboration, The Wolf of Wall Street, is based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort. It’s the story of the scam artist who was indicted in 1998 for bilking investors of more than $200 million.

Awards season is well underway and in the early going, there’s no one film that has become a front runner – with The National Board of Review’s selection of Hugo as Best Film joining The Artist [selected by the New York Film Critics Circle] and Beginners/Tree of Life [tied for the Gotham Awards].
