The trailer for Martin Scorcese’s latest opus was just released, and it seems to hit all the touchpoints of a typical epic Scorsesian plotline. A rags to riches thug-life story shot not through the lens of organized crime but rather Wall Street (wait, is that the same thing actually?), The Wolf Of Wall Street tells the true story of one Jordan Belfort, a quintessential 80’s investment shark who was convicted of fleecing $100 million from clients and told his story of rock star ascension in the autobiography of the same name. It’s notable that The Wolf of Wall Street was written by Terence Winter, the man behind Boardwalk Empire — another story of criminal rags to riches ascension. The Wolf of Wall Street stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Favreau, Spike Jones, Rob Reiner and Kyle Chandler and will be hitting theaters on November 15, 2013.
