Making a sequel 23 years after the original can be a bad idea. You can end up with something doddery like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. That's not good for anyone. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps laughs in the face of that logic. Because it follows over two decades after its predecessor and is actually very good.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is set 23 years after Wall Street, the 1987 movie in which Michael Douglas wore massive '80s ties and Charlie Sheen's life fell apart as he made increasingly risky decisions in the stock market, the silly goose. Douglas is back again as Gordon Gekko, newly released from jail and back on Wall Street, trying to help the financial world stave off the coming meltdown, while being a bit of a bastard. Filling the eager rooky shoes this time around is Shia LaBeouf.
Bonus fact about Michael Douglas: When we interviewed him once he kept mentioning how much he liked our shoes.
Bonus fact about Shia LaBeouf: We've never met him so he probably doesn't even know we wear shoes.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is out in the UK on October 6.
