The Wolf of Wall Street and Anchorman 2 Trailers

Let the Oscar buzz begin.  The first trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street hit the web tonight, and with it, the first peek at the fifth collaboration between Scorsese and his go-to leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio.  The film marks the return to the dramatic-crime genre for the director, after his family friendly Hugo in 2011, which earned him his 7th Best Director Oscar nomination.  

The trailer, frenetically set to Kanye West's "Black Skinhead", hints at a much more festive tone for the film, with some dark humor and of course, a little violence.  We also get a small glimpse at Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey, who both appear to have had some fun supporting roles to work with.  Could Scorsese lead DiCaprio to his 4th Oscar nomination and first win? The Wolf of Wall Street is out November 15th.  Check out the trailer below.  

After years of anxiously waiting, we've finally been given a legitimate theatrical trailer for the comedy follow-up, Anchorman 2. The sequel, sub-titled 'The Legend Continues", brings back all of the familiar faces of the first film, and the trailer gives us a quick peep at newcomers James Marsden and Kristen Wiig.  

The trailer debuts the same day news broke that Universal will save the temporarily ill-fated Dumb and Dumber To, another classic comedy with a long-awaited sequel.  2013 has been an interesting year for comedies, with some underperforming (Hangover III and The Internship) and then the major sleeper hit, This is The End.  Can Anchorman 2 live up to the expectations of a near-decade build of anticipation and become the comedy of the year?
