A Gender-Swapped Trailer For A Controversial Oscar Nominee Is A Film I Would Loooove To See For Real

Yeah, yeah, I know "The Wolf of Wall Street" is based on a true story and that's why there are so many more male characters than female characters and that's just how Wall Street is and all that jazz. But how cool does this version look?

I thought the original version of the film was good — don't get me wrong — but the wealthy-playboy-misogynistic-d*ckhead story isn't exactly new.

When you do something as simple as flipping all the characters' genders, the end result is a new kind of story full of characters that we haven't exactly seen a million times before.
