Like our hard working man of letters, Nix, I’m finding that there is something really compelling about “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps”. Michael Douglas has such an edge to him in this role of Gordon Gekko that you can’t take your eyes off of him. In “Wall Street 2”, Gordon gets out of prison for some kind of evil monetary manipulation and out of the woodwork comes the hungry and thirsty Shia LaBeouf, who is about to marry Gekko’s daughter. The daughter knows her fathers wicked ways but Gekko needs a familiar and a vessel to get back in the game and Shia is more than happy to be used.
John Brolin is on hand to further mess up Shia’s life. “Wall Street 2” has a crazy supporting cast with Carey Mulligan, Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon and Martin and Charlie Sheen. Here’s the new and much longer international trailer for you. “Wall Street 2” opens April 23rd.
