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.
