The Wolf of Wall Street is a biographical crime drama based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, which traces his life right from his humble beginnings as a trader in a Wall Street firm to his meteoric rise as a wealthy stockbroker running his own company and his eventual karmic downfall. Belfort was convicted of crimes related to stock market manipulation and running a penny stock brokering firm where he defrauded investors with fraudulent stock sales worth over $1 Billion and Belfort spent twenty two months in prison. From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in a tale spanning nearly two decades from the mid 80s to the early 2000s.
The movie reunites Academy Award winning director Martin Scorsese and Academy Award nominated, Leonardo DiCaprio, who essays the infamous Jordan Belfort, for an astounding fifth time. The film also stars Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Kyle Chandler and Rob Reiner in pivotal roles.
With a stellar cast, enticing plot, Martin Scorsese at the helm and two trailers promising nothing short of an adrenaline soaked ride that offers intellectual and visceral thrills galore, the film is all set for a simultaneous worldwide release this Christmas on the 25th of December, 2013.
"A crackling plot based on real life events, an academy award studded star cast, an auteur like Martin Scorcese and Christmas holidays, it just all adds up perfectly and we are confident of having a winner on our hands”, said Sunil Udhani, Distribution Head, MVP Entertainment (India) Pvt Ltd.
Further adding, Deepak Sharma, COO of PVR Pictures said, “Making the most of the festive season, couple that with the magic of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Dicaprio, we are hoping to make the best of all these elements put together.”
We are certainly looking forward to witness another Scorsese classic!
