The new trailer for the true-life drama, which teams DiCaprio with director Martin Scorsese for a fifth time, dives into the sex, drugs, yachts and 1990s excess of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort, who penned the best-selling memoir The Wolf of Wall Street.
DiCaprio stars as Belfort, a hard-living sort who makes mad money on Wall Street ($49 million in 1996 alone) and enjoys the booze — he tosses at least one drink into a bush — and babes that come with it. The good times last for only so long, though, because the FBI shows up wanting Belfort to help in their case involving securities fraud and corruption.
It’s a serious story, but Scorsese and DiCaprio seem to be having a hoot with the craziness of Wall Street. The trailer alone features a half-naked marching band, primates, a dancing DiCaprio pop-and-locking and Matthew McConaughey beating on his chest.
The Wolf of Wall Street, which also stars Jonah Hill, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner and Kyle Chandler, arrives in theaters Nov. 15.
