New clip from Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street

Those of you still angry with the bankers might want to give this a wide berth...

The latest clip from Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' finds Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill trying to work out how to shift stacks of ill-gotten dollar bills strapped to a lady.

How they manage it remains to be seen, but it's likely that it's not entirely legal, and that Jonah Hill's character Donnie Azoff, described as an 'amoral entrepreneur', isn't particularly sympathetic.

Whatever, this looks to be something of a blackly comic romp for Scorsese, with DiCaprio playing renowned – and consequently imprisoned – banker Jordan Belfort in the adaptation of his life story, moving from stockbroker to jailbird.

Says writer Terence Winter, the legend behind 'The Sopranos': “It’s sort of written in the same style [as 'Goodfellas'], voice-overs, it’s a very fast movie, it’s really a wild roller coaster ride. I’m really proud of it and incredibly proud to be working with Marty and those guys.

“Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, they’re so entertaining, fun and seductive, that you kind of go along for the ride with them.

“They’re so basically despicable in terms of the lifestyle they’re leading, and what they’re doing and the crimes they’re perpetrating on innocent people.

“But because they’re so wild and fun and you’re living vicariously through their antics you find yourself forgetting that these people are horrible.”

'Trading Places' without the happy ending, then.

It also stars Jon Bernthal, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin and Rob Reiner, and it's due out in the UK on January 17.
