tMF Featured Trailer: Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

tMF Featured Trailer: Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
When it was announced that Oliver Stone would direct the sequel to his own 1987 film Wall Street, the unified reaction was, “Why?” for a number of reasons.  Wall Street isn’t the first movie that comes to mind when you think of movies that need a sequel and definitley not after 23 years.  Not to mention that Stone hasn't made a decent movie in over a decade.  His last outing, W., lacked the bite that made the director famous, so every part of this seems unneccesary.

Despite any reservations you may share, this first teaser is pretty good.  I would go so far as to say it made me want to see the movie.  When the trailer alone does that, it has done its job.  The current financial climate is certainly a playground for this type of story and it will be interesting to see how differently Stone handles this story today versus where it was in the mid 1980s.  Whether or not the movie will be worth it remains to be seen but for the time being, consider my interest peaked.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps opens April 23, 2010.
