First Look: J.C. Chandor's Ensemble Sundance Film 'Margin Call'
While there are lots of films I'm excited for premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, one in particular that I want to bring to your attention today is called Margin Call, written & directed by first-time feature filmmaker J.C. Chandor. Though from early casting news I knew this would be something to watch out for, these photos make me think this might be one of the big films to come out of Sundance in January. Collider found a batch of photos from the dramatic thriller with an incredible ensemble cast that revolves around key people at an investment bank over a 24-hour period during the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis.
There's a few more shots on Collider - so click here to see them. But that's not all! Zachary Quinto, Paul Bettany, Kevin Spacey and Stanley Tucci, who you see above, are only half of the cast! Also appearing: Jeremy Irons (playing CEO), Penn Badgley, Simon Baker, Demi Moore, Mary McDonnell, Ashley Williams and oh heck yes, Aasif Mandvi. This just seems like it will be riveting, exploring the dramatic and moral depths of the financial crisis with the people right in the middle of it. Definitely looking forward to seeing this at Sundance, it's already a high priority film to watch. We'll let you know what we think once we see it.

Yeah the cast alone would make me want to see this; the story itself is just as intriguing, can't wait to see a trailer!

Always nice to have a Vulcan, a Mentalist and a fashionista on your side during a financial crisis.

I'm getting a real Glengarry vibe from this film already. Obviously that's a huge mantle for it to fill (is that a mixed metaphor?) but with a cast and a concept like this it has a chance, i just hope the wit is there.
