I’ll keep this one short and sweet. The Wolf of Wall Street, despite worries that it would be delayed until 2014 due to a ridiculously long runtime, has officially been confirmed for Christmas. It’s a good thing, too, because this second trailer for Martin Scorsese’s next film justifies just why you’ll want to spend your Santa Day at the theater.
Unlike the first trailer for the film that was all sizzle and style, the new trailers gives some background on the film’s protagonist, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), and his rise to the top of Wall Street in the early ’90s. The biopic has a dark comedy tone to it, moving away from recent Scorsese and DiCaprio collaborations (Shutter Island, The Departed, The Aviator, etc.). With Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey in supporting roles, it won’t be hard for the film to keep the comedic tone up.
Once again, The Wolf of Wall Street will be hitting theaters on December 25th.
