Two new clips from Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps have arrived just ahead of its debut at the Cannes Film Festival. These two clips turn the focus slightly away from Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) and on to the film’s protagonist, Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf). The first clip makes it look like Jacob is just as sleazy as Gekko, but the second clip, where Jacob is walking with his mentor Louis Zabel (Frank Langella) and making a case for keeping 15,000 jobs. I haven’t read the script so I don’t know where these scenes fit in the narrative, but they do help give you a better idea of LaBeouf’s character.
Hit the jump to check out both clips along with the official synopsis. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps opens in the U.S. on September 24th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps:
Emerging from a lengthy prison stint, the financial icon Gordon Gekko finds himself on the outside of a world he once dominated. He now has to play catch-up and redefine himself in a different era. Gekko has to become relevant again. But a young, idealistic investment banker, Jacob Moore, learns the hard way that Gekko is still a master manipulator – and if there’s one place where you can redefine yourself, one place where your relevance is a deal away, it’s Wall Street.
