Even Gordon Gekko is feeling a bit of distress in these hard economic times.
Check out the trailer for the Oliver Stone-directed sequel “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”
The music, quick cuts and Michael Douglas acting like his badass self make the film look like a lot of fun. Oh, and make sure to check out the oversized ’80s mobile phone.
Fun doesn’t necessarily convey plot though, so here’s a quick rundown. It’s 2008 and Gordon Gekko has just been released from jail. There’s definitely a bit of culture shock, but Gekko is still a money whisperer and can tell which way the financial winds are blowing — towards a stock market crash.
Unfortunately, no one will listen to his warnings, so he finally gets help from his estranged daughter’s (Carey Mulligan) fiance Jacob (Shia LaBeouf), who is looking for revenge after his mentor was killed.
“Wall Street 2” will hit theaters on April 23.
What do you think of the movie so far? Looking forward to it?
