Leo DiCaprio as Breakdancing '90s D-Bag Trader in Wolf of Wall Street

Put The Great Gatsby, American Psycho and Gordon Gekko in a blender and you get The Wolf of Wall Street, the new Martin Scorsese picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, a yacht and a bunch of money. At one point Leo addresses the camera, Henry Hill-style, so go ahead and sprinkle a little Goodfellas on top.

Ahh, the '90s in New York, when lobster-throwing and chimps on rollerskates were still cool. The movie is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, whose brokerage firm, Stratton Oakmont, was also the inspiration for the 2000 film Boiler Room. So expect heaps of cash, a lot of drugs and dirty deals.

One quibble with the trailer? The music. Kanye is hot right now, but wouldn't a classic '90s track — 2pac, Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, ODB — be so much more appropriate?

Of course, it's hard to be upset when you're just witnessed the sheer beauty that is Leo popping and locking. The flick hits theaters in November.

... Imma say it:

What is Scorsese's boner for Leo? It's like Scorsese is Linus and Leo is his blanket. It's okay to use different leading men from time to time, dude. Now granted, I haven't seen The Aviator, but I have yet to see a Scorsese film with Leo in which Leo brought something to the table that justified him above ANYONE ELSE in the part.
