Leonardo DiCaprio And Jonah Hill Try To Smuggle Some Money In New Wolf Of Wall Street Clip
Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street continues to be one of most intriguing mysteries yet to unravel here in 2013. Both of the film's trailers - the most recent arriving in the last month and the first premiering back in June - have painted the film as a hilarious, entertaining ride, but then you remember that the director hasn't made a comedy since the 80s and that the movie will have a hefty 165 minute runtime. But now thanks to this new clip from Yahoo! I'm back to thinking that The Wolf of Wall Street is just an all-out comedy.
Ridiculous, wide array of characters? Check. An idiotic plan that has no way of succeeding? Check. Strange looking facial hair? Check (thank you, Jon Bernthal's horseshoe moustache). It's entirely possible that the movie will have a good amount of drama to balance out the laughs, but right now evidence seems to indicate that this movie will produce more laughs than tears. Oh, and did I mention the Golden Globes will have the movie submitted for the Comedy/Musical categories instead of Drama?
Adapted from the book of the same name by Terence Winter, The Wolf of Wall Street recounts the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), a young upstart on Wall Street who becomes an insanely wealthy stockbrocker and begins to life of extreme excess and decadence. That is, until the federal government starts snooping around and uncovers all of the illegal dealings that helped Belfort rise to the top. For the film Scorsese has crafted one of the best ensembles of his career, bringing in not only DiCaprio and Bernthal but also Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Spike Jonze, Kyle Chndler, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner and Jean Dujardin.
Like many cinephiles out there we are counting down the days until December 25th when the film comes out, and the wait is becoming unbearable. In the meantime, rock out with some Kanye West and The Dead Weather watching the film's previously released trailers below.
