With The Wolf of Wall Street just about in the can — if not outright complete; the first screening is in four days, mind — and its release a little more than one month away, the first clip has come online. This makes for a wise release: landing in that sweet zone of promotional excerpts, being neither too revealing nor entirely banal, it’s essentially an expansion of that trailer-friendly line concerning money that’s been attached to certain parts of a woman’s body.

Let’s, still, hope this acts as a sign of what’s to come.
The Wolf of Wall Street will open on December 25.
