A new trailer for the film “The Wolf of Wall Street,” based on the memoir by former Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort, has arrived.

The movie shows Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio)’s rise to success and his subsequent troubles with the law. The real Belfort was in jail for almost two years for crimes such as stock market manipulation.

“Wolf” also stars “This Is the End” actor Jonah Hill as Belfort’s friend Donnie Azoff and other actors including Matthew McConaughey and Kyle Chandler.

The movie is directed by Martin Scorsese in another team-up between the director of “The Departed” and DiCaprio. There had been rumors that the release date of “Wolf” was being pushed into 2014, but currently the film is set to come out Dec. 25.

The new trailer shows Belfort gaining Azoff as a co-worker (Azoff spots Belfort’s car in a parking lot and is so impressed by how much Belfort makes that he quits his job to go work for Belfort) and Belfort’s business practices as well as his troubles with the law.

“This is my home,” Belfort yells in his office at one point in the trailer. “The show goes on. They’re going to need to send in the National Guard to take me out, because I ain’t going nowhere.”

Check out the full preview.
