'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps'In 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,' director Oliver Stone delivers an updated look at our country's economic crisis and follows up to his Regan-era fairy tale, 'Wall Street.' Through the eyes of Michael Douglas' iconic villain, Gordon Gekko, this new crisis looks a lot like the old one - an opportunity to get rich, again. However, Gekko has been humbled since we last saw him after he served an eight year prison sentence on the account of testimonies and evidence provided by his former protégé, Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen) and eccentric billionaire rival Bretton James (Josh Brolin). Now that he is out, the blocks have tumbled for everyone and no one knows which way is up - especially young hot-shot Wall Street player Jake Moore (Shia LaBouf), who is coincidentally engaged to Gekko's estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan). While Jake hardly becomes Gekko's new protégé, he seems eager to help the former tycoon in any way he can...and so the Gekko stand-off begins.
