Watch: Impressive First Trailer for Brad Pitt's 'Moneyball' Adaptation
"If we win with this team, we'll change the game." Columbia has finally unveiled the first official trailer (via Yahoo) for Bennett Miller's adaptation of Moneyball. This is the same adaptation that Steven Soderbergh was working on before getting kicked off. Moneyball stars Brad Pitt as Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, as well as Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Chris Pratt and Robin Wright. I expected to see great things, considering this is another Sorkin script, but this looks really, really good. There are some incredible shots, it looks heartfelt, I'm really looking forward to seeing this. Check out the full trailer below!

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.
