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.

Kate Winslet has had much to say about this week's 3-D release of "Titanic," in which she starred back in 1997.
The movie arrives in theaters Wednesday, and the 36-year-old actress hasn't played coy on how she thinks the blockbuster has held up.
As she told MTV at the movie's London premiere last week, the film itself is "still as wonderful and epic as it always was," although her acting....not so much.

According to the paper, some sources claim that Lindsay "crashed" the event, although her rep begs to differ, saying "she was invited by a guest who attended."

Warner Bros. has finally released the trailer for one of the more anticipated films of the year, Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar."
The film chronicles the life of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, whose voice is almost unrecognizable in the clip. The film is written by Dustin Lance Black, who won an Oscar for his work on 2008's "Milk."
The historical drama also stars Naomi Watts, Jeffrey Donovan and "Gossip Girl" star Ed Westwick, in addition to Judi Dench as Hoover's mother and "The Social Network" star Armie Hammer, playing Hoover's purported confidante and lover.
