Normally, this is the part where I throw out all kinds of witty lines and pithy remarks to get you to watch a trailer, but I’ve decided to do something different. Instead, I will just tell you the facts of what you’re about to see: the rip-roaring trailer for The Wolf of Street, the new movie directed by Martin Scorsese, written by The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin and Kyle Chandler. It also features midget tossing, and taping money to boobs.
Now if that doesn’t get you interested, there’s no joke in the world that will.
Based on Jordan Belfort’s best-selling memoir “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which chronicles Belfort’s true story of his dramatic rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life, which included drug and alcohol addiction.
Damn, that looks incredible. Looking and feeling like the drug-fueled love child of Scorsese’s own classic, Goodfellas, and Baz Luhrman’s recent The Great Gatsby, this just looks like it could be a ton of dark fun. Even if there was a lesser talented writer or director behind this, that cast alone would make this worth a look.
And even if, by some strange quirk of time and space, this move still turns out to be pale reflection of that rather amazing trailer, then at least we have a small consolation in the fact that the internet now has this:
