Yesterday, the teaser trailer for Oliver Stone‘s long awaited sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps finally arrived and it unveiled a new Gordon Gekko. He’s fresh from prison and ready to take on the world that he once dominated, the only problem is things have changed, and not for the better. The first official poster has been released for the movie and it looks really familiar.
Money Never Sleeps will mimic a lot of the original story from the first Wall Street movie. Labeouf’s character is an up and coming trader on Wall Street who gets taught some hard lessons in the business. In the midst of it, he unites with the infamous Gordon Gekko to save the financial community from the oncoming economic collapse. If that’s not enough for you, he also gets involved with Gekko’s daughter and tries to find out who’s responsible for the death of his former mentor.
The first poster for the film looks eerily familiar to the poster for 1997′s The Devil’s Advocate with Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino. It looks like Labeouf’s character is making a deal with the devil, which may be another reason why I can see the correlation. Even though Shia cleaned up from head to toe for this film, it’s hard to buy him in this role. He’s 23 years old and still has a baby face. He looks like he just got out of his economics class not off the Wall Street trading floor.
To be fair when Charlie Sheen starred in the original film, he was only 22, but a lot more believable. Here’s the poster for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
What do you think of the poster for Wall Street Money Never Sleeps? Does Shia look like a good fit for this role?
