The Wizard of Lies Trailer

"You're asking me how I didn't know?" HBO has revealed a second official trailer for the HBO Original Film titled The Wizard of Lies, telling the story of stockbroker Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme which got him arrested back in 2008. This is a follow-up to the first teaser trailer we posted last month, and it features plenty of intense footage. Made by director Barry Levinson, this stars Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff, with Michelle Pfeiffer as his wife Ruth, examining how Madoff kept his tricks a big secret from even his family. Also starring Hank Azaria, Kristen Connolly, Lily Rabe, Alessandro Nivola, Kelly AuCoin, Nathan Darrow, & Kathrine Narducci. There's lots of yelling in this trailer, but it's a damn good trailer.

Here's the second official trailer for Barry Levinson's The Wizard of Lies, direct from HBO's YouTube:

The Wizard of Lies Movie

In 2008, stockbroker, investment advisor, and financier Bernie Madoff made headlines around the world when he was arrested for perpetrating perhaps the largest financial fraud in U.S. history. HBO Films' The Wizard of Lies examines Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme -- his deception, lies, and cover-up, all as the financier's wife and sons are catapulted into a harsh and unrelenting spotlight. The Wizard of Lies is directed by veteran American filmmaker Barry Levinson, of The Natural, Rain Man, Toys, Sleepers, Wag the Dog, Sphere, Bandits, Man of the Year, The Bay, The Humbling, and Rock the Kasbah previously. The screenplay is by Sam Levinson, Samuel Baum and John Burnham Schwartz; adapted from Diana Henriques' book. HBO will premiere The Wizard of Lies streaming starting May 20th this summer.

The whole capitalism is one big Ponzi scheme, it's that some of the players, like this one, just overdo it sometimes and then make the whole thing more visible. That's their true crime. As for Robert De Niro, he's a real wizard of roles that he's playing lately ...

Looks great. I still see a little too much DeNiro in the character. That face..."You talkin' to me?"
