The life and times of Jordan Belfort were so insane they had to be made into a book. And now, like any good book, there's the movie.
An official trailer for the film, "The Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio (playing Belfort), Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey, has hit the web.
Directed by Martin Scorsese, "The Wolf of Wall Street," is based on the book of the same name by Belfort, a former New York stockbroker notorious for his outlandish spending and legal woes. The book is said to have inspired the flick, "Boiler Room."
Over Kanye West's "Black Skinhead," from his latest release, "Yeezus," clips of raucous parties, yachts and beautiful women jump out during the two minute clip. If the imagery and slick trailer editing are any indication, the film version of "Wolf" looks equally as enthralling as it's literary predecessor. Think "The Great Gatsby" meets the aforementioned "Boiler Room" - minus Vin Diesel.
"The Wolf of Wall Street" is slated to open November 15.
