Vanity Fair magazine did a photo shoot of the cast for “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” with the famous celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) remains an 1980s movie anti-hero/out-right bastard like no other. Nobody expected him to rear his head and return to the screen for a Wall Street sequel. Given the dire standards of greedy bankers and the world economy, he’s come back to haunt us and provide more capitalist aphorisms. Many shuddered when he uttered the immortal line, “Greed is good.” Many whooped and cheered.
The film’s plot mainly centers around Gordon Gekko acting as a more of an anti-hero rather than a villain, and follows his attempts to help Wall Street before its soon-to-be stock market crash, and to repair his relationship with his daughter Winnie (Mulligan); though all of his attempts are unsuccessful.
While Gekko is trying to fix his relationship with Winnie, Jake “Jacob”’s (LaBeouf), mentor Lewis (Langella) unexpectedly dies, Jacob blames Bretton (Brolin), and soon after makes a deal with Gekko; Gekko helps Jacob get revenge on Bretton, and Jacob helps Gekko repair his relationship with Winnie, who is Jacob’s fiancee.
The film stars Josh Brolin, Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf, Frank Langella, Charlie Sheen, Susan Sarandonand Carey Mulligan.
“Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” is directed by Oliver Stone and is scheduled to hit theaters on April 23rd.
