IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE Trailer Cut in the Style of Martin Scorsese’s THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

     November 28, 2013


We recently had a scare with the terrible news that a sequel to Frank Capra’s classic 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life was in the works; thankfully, that report was quashed when it was revealed that Paramount still held the rights to the film’s source material.  While we’re breathing a collective sigh of relief over that fact, let’s enjoy this new trailer for It’s a Wonderful Life cut in the style of Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film, The Wolf of Wall Street.  Scorsese’s picture stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in the real life story of the stockbroker’s rise to unfathomable riches and fall due to corruption and criminal behavior.  Hit the jump to see how this mash-up measures up.

The new cut of It’s a Wonderful Life, dubbed The Wolf of Bedford Falls, is brought to you by the trailer’s creator, Owen Weber:
