“You just had the flash-crash on Thursday. Here we are at Cannes. It’s almost like Rupert Murdoch made it happen,” said co-star Shia LaBeouf, referring to the chairman of News Corp., which owns 20th Century Fox, the studio releasing the film. “You’re down 1,000 points on Thursday, you’re up 300 points on Monday,” LaBeouf, who plays Gekko’s new protege, said in an interview. “You literally, just as I’m speaking to you, just went through the most tumultuous 30 minutes to ever hit the market in the history of Wall Street, and here we are promoting a movie. It’s wild that our movie’s taking place in this landscape. This is a firefight in the middle of the craziest money storm that has ever happened.”

    i think his helmet is on too tight.

    What does a photo of Francisco Cervelli have to do with Shia LaBeouf?

    Shia’s such a rookie. Murdoch didn’t cause the flash-crash, he caused the Greek crisis.

    Shia, seriously, a firefighter fetish? who knew?!

    Couldn’t have been Murdoch, he was motorboating Mandy D. at the time.

    shia LaDouche!

    there is a funny rumor about the original Wall Street coming out before the crash of ’87===and linking that to the release of this one and a big crash coming after that…

    but i dont stink sooo. i think this movie gonna SUCK cus of shia freaking laDOUCHE!! this guy should be playing timothy sikes in the remake of wall street warriors… not a classic WALL STREET with great actors… shia go make a porno and go on celebrity boxing like your brother screech from saved by the bell you piece

    I’m just thrilled that Oliver Stone had to push back this POS movie so that we could listen to lebeef pump pump it for 6 more months with his clueless market banter. Let’s get wall street two out in theaters so we can get shia to start thinking he’s fighting robots again instead of a BSD on the street.

    He sounds like Anal_yst.
