The Big Short Featurette

"I think he has a great quality of being able to be outraged by something without losing his sense of humor about it." Paramount has unveiled a short new featurette for The Big Short, the out-of-nowhere banking comedy that features a helluva cast. Adam McKay (of Anchorman 1 & 2, Step Brothers) directs Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Karen Gillan, Marisa Tomei, Melissa Leo, Rafe Spall and Brad Pitt in this comedy about a group of bankers that try to plan their way around the recession in 2008. The first trailer hit a few months ago and it looks promising, like there might be something to it. This new featurette mostly focuses on director Adam McKay and his vision for this movie, and his passion for comedy. Give it a watch.

Here's the new featurette (+ poster) for Adam McKay's The Big Short, direct via Paramount's YouTube:

The Big Short Poster

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 surprisingly true story and best-selling book of the same name by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers, Anchorman 2, The Other Guys) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling & Brad Pitt. The screenplay is written by Adam McKay & Charles Randolph. Paramount will open The Big Short in limited theaters starting December 11th with expansion later on.

    I am interested in this film because the premise is intriguing, but I will see it because McKay is directing and I am quite curious about what he can do with the material and A-List actors.
