Late last night the folks over at Paramount Pictures dropped a belated Father’s Day gift to film fans by debuting the first Trailer for the new Martin Scorsese flick The Wolf of Wall Street. Again teaming up with Leonardo DiCaprio, this is also Scorsese’s first time shooting in digital, and honestly, I’m not wild about it, though it seemed like I was in the minority as of last night in terms of that opinion. This initial look at the movie makes it seem like something Oliver Stone tackled years ago, though I hope there’s more going on than meets the eye initially as this looks like Wall Street crossed with Pain & Gain. DiCaprio looks solid and the cast seen in the Trailer includes the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, and Kyle Chandler, so I’m hardly dismissing this one outright (in fact, it looks like it could be a good deal of fun). I remain unconvinced of its Oscar potential however. You can be the judge. Let us know what you think of The Wolf of Wall Street! Behold.
