New First Look Photos for Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
"In my father's world, making a million was a ton," Oliver Stone tells USA Today in a new feature on the film. "I come back to Wall Street now, and it's not a million dollars. It's a billion dollars. And a billion is nothing. They don't even consider that the beginning of a hedge fund. That is what is amazing about the '90s and 2000s — how rich people got." Stone, who originally passed on the script for Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, did eventually return for the sequel. "I guess the crash, which happened in the meantime, made it more interesting," Stone says about its relevance to today. Check out five new official photos below.
We featured two Annie Leibovitz photos from Wall Street 2 earlier this month and we also expect to see a trailer very soon, considering 20th Century Fox is supposed to be releasing this on April 23rd. A caption for the first photo: It's 2008, and hedge-fund trader Jacob Moore (Shia LeBeouf) is watching as the stock market and his future take a downward spiral on his computer screen. "He's a very successful investment banker and his firm is being threatened with bankruptcy," Stone explains. Josh Brolin plays the big bad villain in this sequel, a "new breed of ruthless investor" banking kingpin. Head to USA Today to see more.
