I’ll say one thing about Paramount’s official trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, the new Martin Scorsese joint starring Leonardo DiCaprio as convicted stock market manipulator Jordan Belfort: It is impossible to look away from. It’s flashy, fast, and keenly edited to include only the most theatrical arrogance. Essay question: Am I attracted to Leonardo DiCaprio? Are we? I forget.
First, the trailer.
Everyone here’s playing a souped-up version of a previous role. Jonah Hill‘s know-it-all character from Moneyball has bloomed naturally into a cocky honcho type, Matthew McConaughey’s Magic Mike guru is now a hifalutin’, ultra-confident suit, and Leonardo DiCaprio is the white-collar criminal from Catch Me If You Can as re-conceived in Gordon Gekko’s image. On paper, Leo’s upgrade is ideal. »
