For reasons not yet known (Update: Variety say that Fox are hoping the film is included in the Cannes Film Festival) 20th Century Fox has pushed Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps back from April 23rd to September 24th. The only real competition it had in April was Kick-Ass a week before, and The Losers which would have been released 2 days after. Now it has to contend with Zack Snyder’s Legend of the Guardians and Channing Tatums Roman epic The Eagle of the Ninth, neither of which should have a significent impact on its box office takings.
In the sequel Michael Douglous and Charlie Sheen are back, but this time they are joined by Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan, Susan Sarandon and Frank Langella. Here’s the synopsis:
As the global economy teeters on the brink of disaster, a young Wall Street trader partners with disgraced former Wall Street corporate raider Gordon Gekko on a two-tiered mission: To alert the financial community to the coming doom, and to find out who was responsible for the death of the young trader’s mentor.
