The Wolf of Wall Street Trailer: DiCaprio's Wicked Sense of Humor Continues to Reveal Itself

By Jodi Clager | Trailers | June 17, 2013 | Comments ()


After a series of strained, constipated roles in movies like Inception, J Edgar, Shutter Island, Revolutionary Road and practically the last decade of DiCaprio's career, it's good to see him turn a corner with movies like Django Unchained and now The Wolf of Wall Street and display a more wicked, lively, and funny part of himself.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorcese team up here for the fifth time with The Wolf of Wall Street. DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, the man whose memoirs serve as the basis for the movie. Belfort was working on Wall Street during the height of its excesses in the 1980s and would later be indicted in 1998 for a myriad of crimes, including fraud. Before he was taken down, however, Belfort reveled in all of the idiocy, women, and expensive toys that making $49 million a year can buy.

Check out the trailer, which has lots of fun questionable activities and Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, and Rob Reiner. It looks less The Departed and more American Psycho mixed with a sort of Coen Brothers humor.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
