Well, well, well. Just yesterday I was wondering when we'd see a few scenes from the Wall Street sequel, and this morning the teaser showed up. When we last saw Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) way back in 1987, he was facing jail time for his illegal Wall Street activities. Twenty years later, he — along with his empty money clip and Zack Morris-sized cell phone — is released from prison to enter a very different financial world than the one he left.
The video playfully depicts just what Gekko's missed while he's in jail. Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) and Bretton James (Josh Brolin) represent a sleeker, more stylized generation of Wall Street traders — at least on the surface. Once he's back in the real world, Gekko wastes no time imparting his words of wisdom to his daughter (Carey Mulligan)'s boyfriend Jacob, but has he been gone for too long to have any impact?
The film definitely has the potential to be totally tongue-in-cheek, but in the best way possible. Check it out for yourself and tell me what you think when you read more.
