The Wolf Of Wall Street UK Premiere
'Wolfie's fine, honey. Wolfie's just fine'

10 January 2014  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

The Wolf Of Wall Street became the Lion Of Leicester Square last night as Martin Scorsese's lurid new drugs-and-bonds opus got its UK premiere. Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Jordan Belfort, the titular Wolf, drew predictably huge crowds, sharing his passion for a project that's proving controversial on the other side of the pond.

Click on the gallery below to see DiCaprio walking the carpet with co-stars Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie. Terry Gilliam was there too, although he's not in the film.

Adapted by Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire man Terence Winter from Belfort's memoir, the movie tracks the rise, fall, rise, fall, fall and rise again of Wall Street's most notorious figures. From Belfort's early days as a trainee broker to the coke-and-strippers heyday of his Stratton Oakmont firm, the pump-and-dump brokerage firm he sets up with Donnie Azoff (Hill), it's all packed into three glorious crazed hours of satirical lunacy.

According to Empire's review, it's "Scorsese's funniest and most focused film in a long time", and if that doesn't whet your appetite, the film's trailer may do the trick.

 

The Wolf Of Wall Street is in UK cinemas on January 17.
