Wall Street 2 teaser hits the net

The first teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's long-gestating Wall Street follow-up Money Never Sleeps has hit the 'net over at the IMDB.

Starring Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan and Josh Brolin, the film picks up Douglas' Gordon Gekko as he emerges from a lengthy prison stint following his financial crimes in the mid-1980s.

But though he might seem to be a changed man after his stint in the slammer, Gekko still has his eyes on the top of the money game, even if it means trouble for his daughter's go-getting trader-type fiance (LaBeouf).

This first promo is an odd blend of lines that are clearly being played for laughs and one or two that probably shouldn't be, but may end up viewed that way.

But check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.

Wall Street 2 (whether or not it gets called Money Never Sleeps over here) arrives on April 21.
