People have been buzzing about Martin Scorsese's new movie, "The Wolf of Wall Street," for over a year now, and finally we get a peek at what it's going to look like.
The trailer is out!
And it looks as wild as we had hoped. How could it not? The true story of the Wolf of Wall Street is completely out of control.
The story is the memoir of Jordan Belfort, a Long Island kid who rose to become a millionaire penny stock scammer and boiler-room boss.
Back in the 1990s, Belfort ran Stratton-Oakmont, a Long Island-based pump and dump that found itself on top of the Wall Street world. Think: Drugs, hookers, parties with performing midgets.
And then it all came crashing down. Belfort went to jail for 20 months and lost everything.
You can check out the trailer below:
We've also already taken a look at "The Wolf of Wall Street" script, written by Terence Winter, and luckily a bunch of the most awesome scenes seem to have stayed in the movie.
We've put them together for you here. [WARNING: Spoilers follow.]
The movie opens with a very professional commercial about Belfort's firm, and then goes into a scene of him and his brokers having a dwarf-throwing contest.
According to the script, classical music plays as "a conservative group of smiling, ethnically-diverse actors surrounding their young chairman Jordan Belfort," pose through a Gene Hackman voice-over.
Then you head to Stratton-Oakmont headquarters and 700 20-something stockbroker bros are chanting and throwing around dollar bills to see who can throw a cape-clad dwarf into a dollar sign bulls-eye.
Jordan is being played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
More chaos: Jordan's first day in the bullpen of L.F. Rothschild in 1980s suspender-wearing Wall Street.
Jordan walks in and is immediately berated by his supervisor, Scott Mollen, who tells him he'll be "the connector" calling 500 clients all day. "You are lower than f*cking pond scum," Mollen tells him.
Luckily, Belfort also meets Danny Porush(played by Jonah Hill), Mollen's much more polished superior. "F*ck him," he tells Jordan, "I'm senior broker here and he's just a worthless piker. Let's grab lunch later."
And then then the opening bell rings as Porush yells, "Let's f*ck!" And the race begins — brokers dial like crazy and everyone is screaming — it's the sound of greed, says Jordan's voice-over.
At lunch, Danny and Jordan have a martini-drinking contest until one of them passes out.
They're at a high-end restaurant and Danny is doing coke from a spoon when the Maitre'D comes over. He tells him:
"Here's the game plan Luis. Bring us two Absolute martinis straight up. Precisely seven and half minutes later you'll deliver two more, then two more after five minutes until one of us passes out."
Jordan says he doesn't drink and tries, and fails, to order a 7-Up.
