When this belated sequel was announced I was firmly in the "Why bother?" camp, granted the current financial climate gives it a good backdrop but still, I wasn't feeling it.
Fast forward to today and the trailer drops, I find myself doing a 180, Gordon Gekko as a fish out of water when he is released from prison looks like great fun and as the trailer picks up pace it reveals what looks to be a slick thriller, although younger fans may be annoyed with the lack of Shia in the trailer, however my main concern is that Shia's character is not just a rehash of Charlie Sheen's.
Of course this could just be a case of a really well cut trailer, fusing Gekko's story with a thriller st in the intoxicating high powered, high living glamour world of Wall street is a potent mix, but for now I am won over.
"Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" Open on April 23rd and you can check the trailer out below.
