The first clip from Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street has debuted online via Yahoo! Movies. The short clip is gloriously ludicrous and finds Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained), Jonah Hill (Moneyball),Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) and Margot Robbie (About Time) discussing the intricacies of taping money to what once can presume is a hooker. Check it out here after the official synopsis…
“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.“
The clip reflects the comedic tone of the trailers and if the film is anything like what we have seen in the trailers, it will be a significant change in tone for Martin Scorsese.
The Wolf of Wall Street also stars Matthew McConaughey (Mud), Jon Favreau (Iron Man 3), Ethan Suplee (My Name is Earl), Spike Jonze (Three Kings), Kyle Chandler (Super 8), Rob Reiner (New Girl), Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous). It is set to open on Christmas Day in North America and on January 17th 2014 here in the UK.
