First clip from Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street

New trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall StreetThe 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.

    Change in tone for MArtin Scorsese??? what movies the writer of this have been seen??? Scorsese made in the 80s 2 extraordinary films (VERY UNDERRATED) with a comedy tone, the brillant AFTER HOURS, and the “comedy/drama”: THE KING OF COMEDY….Scorsese has done great films in almoust every genre: THE AGE OF INNOCENCE, THE LAST THEMPTATION OF CRHIST, THE KING OF COMEDY, AFTER HOURS, HUGO, THE AVIATOR, RAGING BULL, TAXI DRIVER,SHUTTER ISLAND….He has do it all (comedy, drama, biopic, religious, trhiller,etc)…not just the obvious gangster films that is seems to be only known for (mean streets, goodfellas, casino, the departed).
