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.”

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
