Watch: First Great TV Spot for Brad Pitt & Bennett Miller's 'Moneyball'
With the baseball season in full swing, there's no better time to start dropping some hints during the commercials about Columbia's upcoming adaptation of Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman. We featured the impressive first trailer for this baseball drama back in June, and I'm now very much looking forward to it, which is why I couldn't pass up mentioning this first TV spot (from TheMovieBox via The Playlist), since it's damn good, too. I just love the tone of this, it looks so good, I love the music, I love the casting, I'm considerably excited for this (probably more than I should be). Enjoy!
Watch the first official TV spot for Michael Lewis' Moneyball adaptation, via TheMovieBox:
The story of Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's (Brad Pitt) successful attempt to put together a winning baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft a roster of players.
Moneyball is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Bennett Miller, of The Cruise and Capote previously. The screenplay was written/rewritten by Oscar winning writers Steven Zaillian (Clear and Present Danger, Gangs of New York, American Gangster) and Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, Charlie Wilson's War, The Social Network), originally based on Michael Lewis' nonfiction book. Columbia Pictures will be bringing Moneyball to theaters starting on September 23rd this fall, right near the end of the 2011 baseball season.
