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.

Wall street Money Never Sleeps. There is not alot you can say about this movie Micheal Douglas Shia labouf, look the same as it was in the original wall street greedy Bastards, And as for Banker they all should go to the wall using Tax payers money to make Bonusers for themselfs. I'm getting To political sorry but it make my Blood Boil The Thieving Bastards.

I want Brolin to be a bad ass, but hope Stone doesnt blow this one. His recent films have been very heavy-handed and not such a pleasure to sit through, I have my fingers crossed for a good time, but am very reluctant to get entirely psyched for this, primarily because of Stone.

Is this going to be centered around the crash?

I love the cast except for Shia Lebouf, I'm still not convinced about him, agree with voice of reason, my main interest is with brolin

Beyond every shadow of a doubt, this is one DYNAMITE CAST.Douglas,Labeouf,Brolin,Mulligan make a brilliant ACTING TEAM.Hopefully,this movie will live up to expectation.I believe that Labeouf can rise to the challenge,shine bright and silence all negative critics labelled against him and his acting abilities.Best of luck to him.Nevertheless, i will definitely be seeing this.

Millionaire director with networth of 50 million directs film bashing wall street, as paid for by a ruthless corporation. Sorry Mr. Stone, but Michael Moore was a hypocrite first. Its not really political reasons why I hate Oliver Stone, its what the man did to Natural Born Killers. Tarantinos screenplay was brilliant, funny, powerfull, badass, and actually commented on the suck up bastards that run the gossip programs. Instead Ollie took all the humor out and replaced it with tilted camera angles (which he considers makes him an 'art' director) and annoying cuts every 2 seconds. Im just glad he wasn't given Pulp Fiction.

Great to see Eli Wallach in there too. Can't believe the guy's gonna be 95 this year!! Just watched him last night in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Love the addition of Brolin but sheesh, so very tired of Shia, could there be a more overrated, overused actor on the planet? And where the hell is Buddy Fox anyway, not having sheen somewhere in this movie is weak. The vision of buddy fox being the first to greet GG when he is let out of prison, reminiscent of Ocean's 12 just feels right. Perhaps time heels all wounds and Buddy wants to help GG build back up his empire the right way. With Brolin, who plays the heavy hand against them. BBBF Bring Back Buddy Fox!!! Even Darryl Hannah and Sean Young in all their insanity would make this a real treat for the hardcore fans. And the dude from scrubs while you're at it!!

So that was Wallach....damn, I wish the guy had more common sense.

I hung out with a Billoinaire once, it was one of the most boring experiences I have ever had, for the all the money and charm the man had, he was empty and hollow. Greed isn't good, greed is God.

3 reasons i'll watch this film : 1) Carey Mulligan . 2) Josh Brolin 3) its Oliver Stone's film

Shia. Why? He's not a good actor. Most people i know don't care for him, incl. women. On a rather unimportant note, I cannot believe Douglas is shorter then Shia who is already a midget (saw him once in LA here).

3 reasons I won't watch this film: 3) Hypocritical 2) Josh Brolin 1) its Oliver Stone's Film

Shia is awful. It literally sickens me to see him attempt to act. I loved Wall Street and will probably see this movie as well... but I would have been a lot happier if they kept Shia out of it.
