Gangs Of New York

Martin Scorsese is once again teaming up with A list star Leonardo DiCaprio on The Wolf Of Wall Street. They have worked together on several occasions now and likely have a great working relationship. DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort author of The Wolf Of Wall Street and former Wall Street hot shot.
We have already had one trailer for this film but this trailer showcases a lot more new footage. I do feel that this film does have its flaws though. I do think that DiCaprio has to stop playing young characters. Belfort in this story starts out in his 20s and despite people saying how good looking DiCaprio is he can no longer pull off playing a 20 year old. I do think he is a good actor sure and I hope this does not affect my opinion of the film or his performance.
The film does have a great cast and will likely be an ensemble piece. However DiCaprio will likely steal the show as the story is about his character. The film is due to be released on Christmas Day this year and there were rumors about the film being delayed because a draft of the film had a run time of over 180 minutes. That may have just been a rumor but I still think that this film will have a long run time and maybe reach the 150 minute mark.
As the film is coming out in December that is the perfect time for the Oscars and the cast and crew will be able to campaign for nominations. Maybe this will finally be Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar year? However he does seem cursed and will likely be snubbed once again or even if he does get nominated he will unfortunately miss out on the win. I can’t make a decision till I have seen the film so we just need to wait till then.
What do you think of the trailer? Do you want to see Leonardo DiCaprio win an Oscar for this role? Please comment below and thanks for reading.
