If there were Academy Awards just for movie trailers, Marty Scorsese‘s Wolf of Wall Street trailer would have cleaned up. Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Editing, Best Original Song (thanks, Kanye)—the first Wolf of Wall Street trailer was just fantastic. And that got people such as myself pretty excited.
Unfortunately, the actual film proved to be a bit of a disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, the acting was great, and there were some excellent scenes. But holy Last Temptation of Christ, the thing was three hours long—nay, three fucking hours long. And I don’t know about you, but I didn’t have any illegal narcotics to help me sit through it.
Did I hate Wolf of Wall Street? Not at all. I just didn’t love it. And I think the Screen Junkies honest trailer is probably a more accurate representation of the film that the actual trailer.
What do you think?
