If there is one movie I have been looking forward to all damn year, it’s The Wolf of Wall Street. Directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Wolf is based on the crazy life of Wall Street badass Jordan Belfort and written by Belfort himself while in prison with Tommy Chong as his cell mate. I previously read both the book and the sequel and have been pumped for this movie for a long time. Seriously, check out this new trailer:
Now, reports are coming out that “all of the actors have a lot of skin in the game,” and they mean that quite literally. Leo gets rear-ended by a dominatrix with a candle, Jonah Hill goes full frontal ala Boogie Nights, and “there are said to be orgies on planes, in living rooms, just about everywhere.” Along with unreal amounts of blow, quaaludes, and vehicular destruction, none of this should surprise fans of the book, but your average movie viewer may be a bit caught off guard. Not to mention, Wolf comes out Christmas Day of all days.
Ultimately, while backdoor play and anything involving Jonah Hill naked are both highly questionable, Margot Robbie playing Leo’s wife will more than make up for it, and I, for one, am glad they’re not pulling any punches in one of the most hilarious and amazing true stories I have ever read.
The Wolf of Wall Street is promising to be to sex what GoodFellas was to violence. Merry Christmas, boys.
