I am hearing lots of good things about Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Not only am I reading that critics are calling it his best film in years, but also many are saying this will finally be star Leonardo DiCaprio’s chance at Oscar glory. The film itself looks magnificent, and to prove just how on the edge crazy this film will be, we have two new clips plus a new TV spot to show you. There is also an image gallery for you to enjoy too!
The Wolf of Wall Street see’s director Martin Scorsese once again working with star Leonardo DiCaprio.
Based on ex-stockbroker Jordan Belfort’s memoirs, Leonardo DiCaprio takes on the role of Belfort, and his rise and fall in the 1980s financial scene. Hard partying and drug abusing Belfort was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering, and spent 22 months in a federal prison as a result.
Belfort’s memoirs have been adapted by Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire) and principals Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland produce, alongside Scorsese, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Irwin Winkler, Alexandra Milchan, DiCaprio and his partner Jennifer Killoran.
The film also stars Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, and Rob Reiner.
The Wolf of Wall Street arrives in US cinemas on Christmas Day and will be released in the UK on 17 January 2014.
Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
