Paramount Pictures released a surprise trailer last week for their upcoming movie The Big Short. The film aws originally slated for a 2016 release, but will instead be released in limited release on December 11th before getting a wide release a few weeks later. The move is presumabely to make the film eligible for the Academy Awards.
The movie comes from the outrageous mind of director Adam Mckay and stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam Mckay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
