Michael Douglas channelled the confidence of ruthless corporate raider Gordon Gekko while walking the red carpet at the New York City premiere of his latest film, 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps'.

The Academy Award-winning actor recently announced he's being treated for throat cancer. He posed for photos at the premiere with co-stars Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan and director Oliver Stone.

LaBeouf called the 65-year-old Douglas a "wolf". He noted that Douglas showed no signs of weakness while making the 'Wall Street' sequel, which opens in the US on Friday.

Stone said "it's a struggle" and "it's tough," but he is "fighting hard".

Stone also directed the original 'Wall Street' in 1987. The film also starred Charlie Sheen and Douglas won an Oscar for playing Gekko.
