I've watched the trailer for "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" several times in the past week, and it gets more disappointing each time.

Maybe I hyped it up my mind too much, or maybe it's the presence of Shia LaBeouf, who is cinema's answer to Ted McGinley the TV show killer.

Just to be clear here, I'm only upset with the trailer, not with the potential of "Wall Street 2." Oliver Stone always gives moviegoers something to talk about. Whether it's good or bad, at least there's a discussion.

The original "Wall Street" is an all-time classic, and Gordon Gekko is the signature character of the 1980s lifestyle. We're assuming "Wall Street 2" will be worth our $12 at the theater, but you should short sell the trailer.
