Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps trailer


28th January 2010

Wall Street's Gordon Gekko said "Greed is good," and, as if to test that theory, Oliver Stone is back with a sequel. Check out the trailer after the jump.

I watched Wall Street again recently for the first time in ages and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Of course, the main attraction is Michael Douglas as stocks 'n' shares villain, Gekko, whose cold-hearted, money-grabbing ways provide the best moments but also sees him go to prison by the end of the film.

Here's where we are for the sequel, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps:

"Emerging from a lengthy prison stint, Gordon Gekko finds himself on the outside of a world he once dominated. Looking to repair his damaged relationship with his daughter, Gekko forms an alliance with her fiancé Jacob (Shia LaBeouf), and Jacob begins to see him as a father figure.

"But Jacob learns the hard way that Gekko - still a master manipulator and player - is after something very different from redemption."
The trailer has received some criticism already, but I like it. It's not 'Wall Street in the noughties' - it looks like a more stylish flick, out to tell a different type of story. And the mobile phone, the nod to "Greed is good" and the smug, "Call me Gordon" from Douglas all had me smiling.

My only problem has been with the subtitle - Money Never Sleeps? It's the kind of thriller title that you'd find on the listings for Channel 5 late at night. Or worse - it sounds like the financial equivalent of a Steven Seagal film.
