Trailer watch: The Wolf of Wall Street

More is never enough, so goes the mantra of Martin Scorcese‘s next big flick The Wolf Of Wall Street. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as convicted stock market manipulator Jordan Belfort, the film details a man who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world and mob infiltration.

This is not the first time Belfort’s life has been given the Hollywood treatment. His memoir, The Wolf Of Wall Street, had been the inspiration for the rather terrific 2000 film Boiler Room. The book is once again the basis for a film; helmed by Scorcese and co-starring Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Favreau, Spike Jonze and Joanna Lumley.

The Wolf of Wall Street is set to hit cinemas this November.
