Star cast: Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan, Susan Sarandon
Director: Oliver Stone
Plot: Michael Douglas is back in his Academy Award-winning role as one of the screen’s most notorious villains, Gordon Gekko in this week’s release, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Emerging from a lengthy prison stint, Douglas finds himself on the outside of a world he once dominated. Looking to repair his damaged relationship with his daughter, he forms an alliance with her fiancé Shia LaBeouf, a young Wall Street trader. But they can never really trust the ex-financial titan, whose relentless efforts to redefine himself in a different era have unexpected consequences.
Expectations: One cannot but compare the film to the original Wall Street, released back in 1987. The film hasn’t been publicized as well as expected. Average expectations at the box-office.
