The Wolf of Wall Street – Official Movie Trailer 2013

The Wolf of Wall Street 2013 poster

I’m not sure what I expected to see from Martin Scorsese’s latest film THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. But this certainly wasn’t it. Not that what we see here in this trailer is bad. Just pretty wild and unconventional.
Which I think is the point of the story of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. The film definitely has an early 90’s feel featuring a mix of cinematic and plot influences from Wall Street and American Psycho.
Yet it is still uniquely Scorsese. I can’t think of a better director to capture the excess and debauchery of the greed filled 1990’s and THE WOLF OF WALL STREET definitely looks like it’s trying to capture that.
Besides the frenetic pace and quirky feel of the clip. We also get a sense of the talented, large and eclectic ensemble cast surrounding star Leonardo DiCaprio. Comedy film veterans Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner and Academy Award winning actor Jean Dujardin are all featured in the film. Of course that doesn’t necessarily mean the movie is a comedy. But Scorsese was definitely looking for that kind of wild, unpredictable, energy to fill the film and story.

Of course let’s be honest. At this point Martin Scorsese can put anything out and audiences and critics will likely eat it up. He’s on top of his game with no hint of slipping in sight.

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET stars Leonardo DiCaprio , Jonah Hill , Margot Robbie , Matthew McConaughey , Jon Favreau , Kyle Chandler , Rob Reiner , Jean Dujardin , Pj Byrne , Kenneth Choi. The film is directed by Martin Scorsese. It is scheduled for release December 25th, 2013.


Original Book Synopsis:

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.
Reputedly the prototype for the film Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont turned microcap investing into a wickedly lucrative game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out brokers browbeat clients into stock buys that were guaranteed to earn obscene profits–for the house. But an insatiable appetite for debauchery, questionable tactics, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe designer named Steve Madden would land Belfort on both sides of the law and into a harrowing darkness all his own.

From the stormy relationship Belfort shared with his model-wife as they ran a madcap household that included two young children, a full-time staff of twenty-two, a pair of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere—even as the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them—to the unbridled hedonism of his office life, here is the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down…
