How Long Is The Wolf of Wall Street?

What You Could Have Done Instead of Watching These Movies

The Wolf of Wall Street is finally coming out this week, and while it's one of the year's most anticipated films, it's also one of the longest. The Martin Scorsese drama is opening on Christmas Day, and at two hours and 59 minutes, it has a lengthy runtime even for the most die-hard movie buffs. We're no stranger to long movies, and this got us thinking about other crazy-long films, many of which seem to feature one Leonardo DiCaprio.


Here's how some films stack up against The Wolf of Wall Street's almost three-hour runtime and some activities that put their lengths into perspective.

Titanic: 3 hours, 4 minutes (5 minutes longer than The Wolf of Wall Street)

How bad are your teeth? Because this is the time it takes to get four root canals.

Cloud Atlas: 2 hours, 52 minutes (7 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

You could watch four episodes of Breaking Bad on Netflix and still have four minutes in between to pause and grab snacks.

Gangs of New York: 2 hours, 47 minutes (12 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

Is that the oven timer? Your 11-pound turkey is fully cooked.

See more lengthy films after the jump.

Django Unchained: 2 hours, 45 minutes (14 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

Your latex-based paint has dried completely.

Avatar: 2 hours, 42 minutes (17 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

If you have medium to long hair, you could have gotten a full perm by now.

Les Misérables: 2 hours, 38 minutes (21 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

You could fly from Orlando to New York to see Les Misérables on Broadway!

Zero Dark Thirty: 2 hours, 37 minutes (22 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

This is how much time it takes to bike from the bottom of Manhattan to the top . . . and back again.

The Departed: 2 hours, 31 minutes (28 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

You could burn 1,527 calories running six miles per hour.

Lincoln: 2 hours, 30 minutes (29 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

If you started waiting in line by 6:30 a.m., you would have a Cronut by now. You should treat yourself after all that biking and running, right?

The Tree of Life: 2 hours, 19 minutes (40 minutes shorter than The Wolf of Wall Street)

Depending on traffic, you could drive from Los Angeles to San Diego, and the scenery probably would have been just as good if you take the Pacific Coast Highway.
