The Big Short Trailer

"There's some shady stuff going down." Surprise! No one had any idea this was coming out, but here it is. Paramount has suddenly dropped the trailer for a comedy called The Big Short, which they're pushing out to theaters by the end of this year. It's kind of a big comedy version of The Wolf of Wall Street, about a group of bankers who decide to pull off a huge defrauding scheme to take the banks for their money during the economic crash of 2008. The all-star cast includes Brad Pitt (who also produced it), Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Karen Gillan, Marisa Tomei, Melissa Leo, plus of course, Steve Carell. This looks like it might be fun, if not a refreshing comedy break from all the Star Wars and Hunger Games this winter.

Here's the first official trailer for Adam Mckay's The Big Short, direct from Paramount's YouTube:

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.

    Geez....why were they so worried about the banks back in 2005-2008... the worry should have been with all those bad haircuts and hairstyles...why so many horrible wigs on these actors (:^D)

    Hm, what? Hollywood is being, what, ironic about world economic crisis? Seriously?

    Kinda looks like Wolf of Wall Street mixed with American Hustle, but it just might work. A nice bit of fun if nothing else.
