George Clooney Leads First Trailer for Jodie Foster's 'Money Monster'
"I might be the one with the gun here, but I'm not real criminal! It's people like these guys…" Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Money Monster, a new film directed by actress Jodie Foster (who does not appear in the film) starring George Clooney as Lee Gates, a TV host of a financial show called "Money Monster". In the middle of one of his shows, a man comes in and hijacks the broadcast, wiring a bomb and taking over in order to broadcast his message - that he's there to show the real truth behind what's going on. Jack O'Connell plays the hijacker, named Kyle Budwell. The cast includes Julia Roberts, Caitriona Balfe, Dominic West, Giancarlo Esposito & Greta Lee. This actually looks really good! Give it a look.
Here's the first official trailer for Jodie Foster's Money Monster, found direct on YouTube:
In the taut and tense thriller Money Monster, Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a bombastic TV personality whose popular financial network show has made him the money wiz of Wall Street. But after he hawks a high tech stock that mysteriously crashes, an irate investor (Jack O'Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) hostage live on air. Unfolding in real time, Gates and Fenn must find a way to keep themselves alive while simultaneously uncovering the truth behind a tangle of big money lies. Money Monster is directed by actress/filmmaker Jodie Foster, who previously directed Little Man Tate, Home for the Holidays and The Beaver, as well as two episodes of "Orange Is the New Black". Sony Pictures will release Jodie Foster's Money Monster in theaters starting May 13th, 2016 this summer.
