Iconic director Martin Scorsese (Hugo) has made a career of telling the stories of criminals and the corrupt. From Raging Bull to The Departed, Scorsese has returned often to tough guys, shady backdoor deals, and bloodstained money.

In Scorsese’s latest feature film, The Wolf of Wall Street, the director once again dips into that world – but this time, he comes at it from a different angle. The film marks the first time he has tackled the (rather topical) subject of white collar crime. In the latest trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio (The Great Gatsby) takes on the role of true-life securities fraudster Jordan Belfort – a man who was a multi-millionaire by the time he was 25 . . . and the subject of a massive federal investigation less than a decade later.

The Wolf of Wall Street Jordan Belfort New The Wolf of Wall Street Trailer; Christmas Release Date AnnouncedShedding more light on Belfort’s rise from an ambitious wannabe to an obnoxiously wealthy mover and shaker than previous trailers, this latest preview continues to show off a quirky mix of crime, drama, and wry comedy. Jonah Hill (This Is the End) makes a greater impression here than before – perhaps in an attempt to capitalize on his rising star power, or perhaps to reflect the importance of his role in the film.

In any event, The Wolf of Wall Street still looks like it could be a serious event film come the Christmas season. Featuring great stylistic panache and a possible return to the narrative style of Goodfellas, this could be yet another notch on the belt of a director with no shortage of them.

In addition to DiCaprio and Hill, The Wolf of Wall Street features a ridiculously talented cast, which includes Jean Dujardin (The Artist), Rob Reiner (The Bucket List), Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club), Joe Bernthal (The Walking Dead), and Kyle Chandler (Zero Dark Thirty), among others.

  1. Am I the only one who can’t stand Jonah hill teeth in the trailer ?

    • I think that’s kind of the point.

  2. No Leo, you won’t be winning the oscar.

    • Theres a funny meme from the oscars that says that.

  3. Such a rad trailer.

  4. You don’t go against Coach Taylor and Win Leo, its all over. Clear Eyes Full Hearts, Can’t Lose

  5. Can people shut the hell up about Leonardo DiCaprio and the Oscars? Richard Burton and Peter O’Toole didn’t cause as much flame as Leo when it comes to these stupid award shows.

    • A) There was no internet in the Sixties, so how can you compare the hoopla then and now? B) At least those two got nominated regularly. C) They are British, AMPAS is American, as is DiCap. He gets snubbed by his own.

  6. this will probably be the first movie where Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife doesn’t die (or is already dead)

    Shutter Island
    Inception
    Romeo and Juliet
    Revolutionary Road

    although, i think it’s safe to say his marriages in this film will not last

    • Woah, buddy. Spoilers for those other flicks.

      • seriously? those movies are several years old – no spoiler alert necessary

  7. greed is good

  8. looks good!

  9. I know what I’ll be seeing Christmas day.

  10. Scorsese + DiCaprio.Enough said.

  11. Not usually a fan of Jonah Hill, but he seems at least humorous in this.
