    Lucky for them cause the movie is not really the topper. Acting wise I liked it a lot but it’s def not the best they could have done. I haven’t seen the first one but hey this one the plot was pretty weak…but good publicity means good money, right ? xD

    Finally the movie that the world has been waiting for. Global recession epic Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is one of the year’s best films and deserved to be No. 1 at the box office. It is the most important movie of the year by far because it’s the only 2010 movie about the global recession. Margin Call (2011) which is also about the global recession will be a very important film as well. I was disappointed that unfortunately Donald Trump’s scene was cut, but this is still an intelligent, intellectual and relevant movie. Oscars for all involved.

    SILENCE! Prepare for the end… the end of the recession! A triumph! Oliver Stone has exposed the truth to the world again! Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is unmatchable, unbeatable, unique!

  • sillyme

    I doubt Shia and Carey’s romance had anything to do with this movie getting to number one. Nobody knows who Carey Mulligan is.

  • to Lorraine

    not only that, but this is possibly the last time we will see michael douglas in a film. this is, i believe, what my mother calls his “swan song”

  • yuk

    Shia laDOOOCHE. This racist homophobe can’t ACT

  • Lorraine

    This is not the last time we will see Michael Douglas in a film. He has another film coming out called Haywire directed by Steven Soderbergh which also stars Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton.
    I wish him a speedy convalescence and hope to see him in the other films that he is attached to including:
    Untitled Liberace Project
    Rollover
    Racing the Monsoon
    We Have Always Lived in the Castle

  • busted

    Wow… times are changing.. 19 million is a hit..

    I guess it only is the case for males in hollywood. Because when the women make that amount at the BO it is called a bomb..

    double standard..

  • LadyB

    Karla, people go to the movies during the week too – Theatres are not closed Mon-Thurs. As for Wall Street 2, even though it is #1, still a disappointment. I mean, did you see the self praise and publicity Oliver, Shia were giving themselves? $19m, please. It means it might not even make $100m before it leaves the theatres.

  • to KAZ/SLIG

    which is one stupid poster: just because you didn’t seem to recognize, Shia is sitting.

  • Wall street does it again

  • KARLA

  • Wall street does it again

  • hootie

    heard Wall Street 2 was disappointing too much Shia not enough of Michael…..also Kristen Bell is box office poison

  • JULIO

    GREAT! VERY GOOD MOVIE! CONTENDER OSCAR SURE!

  • LongLeggedLady

    I read that this is Stones biggest hit! I am really excited about seeing this movie cause it is a different role for Shia and I think that he was great in the Greatest Game. Plus I have read nothing but glowing reports of Shia and his Co-star Carey’s chemistry on screen. I guess that is the benifit of being in love while filming.
    From the reviews that I read sounds like a good movie. :)

  • LongLeggedLady

    BTW please no one be a DOUCH by telling the ending, PLEASE!

  • blair

    This movie is amazing

  • sayuri

    Assisti o Filme e é incrível. Shia LaBeouf está incrível. =))

  • b.

    Hurray! for Michael and Shia, this is an awesome movie, better than the town which owes its success to the popularity of Blake Lively

  • Ash

    can’t wait to see it

  • amazed

    shia seems to be getting everything that he wants and fast.
    1st to star in this movie
    2nd the gurl of his dreams (carey mulligan)
    3rd a hand that he said would never completely heal and it has
    4th a movie that made it huge at the box office for the type of movie it is
    my prediction next will be marriage and his very first oscar then starring in any movie his heart desires
    all of this for selling his soul to the devil?!..

  • Olivia

    You should see what they are saying about Carey’s bad acting and Shia’s acting on IMDb Wall Street 2 Money Never Sleeps.
    Many are saying that Carey was horrible and Shia was okay. Many walked out.
    Go to IMDb and see for yourselves…………

  • Jeanie

    @amazed:
    Sold his soul?? Yeah, I believe that could be true, come on he idolizes Ollie Stone, that guy is aweful. Shia soon, is going to be the next ‘scientologist’ like Tom Cruise, ew!

  • Shaniqua

    You people could be right Shia does worship the devil or sold his soul, cause apparently Shia adores Howard Stern and he hates God from my understanding.
    Check out youtube and it is on there.

  • Kate

    Shia Was Good inThis

  • Snowflake

    I find Shia very unattractive and I think Mulligan has a head like extra small people along with extra small personality and zero sexappeal.They deserve each other.

    No, he is a Christian Jew God blesses His children
