Money Talks In The Trailer For 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' [Video]

Yes it's already that time, that time we get our first look at the Oscar selection that will be on offer by late 2013/early 2014 and first up to bat is the Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf of Wall Street. A real story about the shading, corrupt dealing that happened (still happens) on Wall Street at the turn of the century and the notorious Jordan Belfort, who controlled much of the corruption.

Watch the teaser trailer for The Wolf Of Wall Street 

Belfort is a majorly successful, multi-million dollar-earning stockbroker and motivational speaker from New York who is making enough money to fritter through it as he pleases. In 1998, the real secret behind his quickly accumulated wealth is uncovered and a string of fraudulent activities surrounding stock market manipulation; including money laundering and mob infiltration, lands Belfort in jail. Even in jail he managed to squirm through the legal system and only ended up serving 22 months in prison after being given a 4 years sentence, even after famously refusing to cooperate with police during their ongoing case to expose major corruption on Wall Street. The Wolf of Wall Street is his story.

The snake went on to write two memoirs about his dealings of how his love for alcohol, women parties and the finer things in life landed him in jail, which have since been published in around 40 countries and translated into 18 different languages. With Leonardo DiCaprio taking on the role of Belfort in what should surely be the role that lands him his first Oscar, the film already indicates that this coming Oscar season will be one to savour.

The Wolf of Wall Street has been adapted from one of Belfort's two best-selling autobiographies and it has been adapted onto screen by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter (The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire), with Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey and Jon Favreau co-staring. It is set to be released January 17 2014.
