    "Isn't greed the problem with America? I say BOYCOTT this film!"


    ANNES, France (AP) - Gordon Gekko is out of prison and out of money. He's not quite through with Wall Street, though.

    Reuniting with director Oliver Stone, Michael Douglas reprises his Academy Award-winning role as financial viper Gekko in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," whose premiere Friday at the Cannes Film Festival could not be more timely as frenzied gyrations continue to rock the stock market.

    "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.

    I'm not quite sure I follow your purpose with this post. Are you saying America/Wall Street is not greedy? Why should this film be boycotted? It highlights corporate greed in this country.
