Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill star in the new Wolf of Wall Street trailer
After news broke that Martin Scorsese’s THE WOLF OF WALL STREET was going to clock in at two hours and forty-five minutes, I became a little less confident about the pic. I don’t mind a movie pushing three hours, but this didn’t seem like a story that needed that much film to be told. And no sooner do I have those thoughts then we get a brand spanking new trailer and I can now officially say THE WOLF OF WALL STREET is my most anticipated movie for the remainder of 2013. It looks pretty great and I’m loving Leonardo DiCaprio breaking the fourth wall. I’m not sure how often they’ll do that, but I always enjoy it when movies use that gimmick. Directed by Martin Scorsese, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Jake Hoffman, Cristin Milioti and Ethan Suplee. The film hits theaters on Christmas Day, just in time for Oscar contention.
The official Amazon.com synopsis of Jordan Belfort’s memoir ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’: By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called…In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent.
