Just like the spirit of its main character Gordon Gekko, greed is good for Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. The movie rakes in an estimated $19 million on its debut weekend, placing itself on the top of North American Box Office. It also becomes the best opener for director Oliver Stone, passing the $18.7 million obtained by his 2006: World Trade Center.
This follow-up to 1987 Wall Street is strongest among older audiences, with moviegoers over the age of 30 comprising two-thirds of ticket-holders.
