With Steve Carell, Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and others in a film about how Wall Street was dumb and ignorant leading up to the global economic crisis, you’d think this would be higher on the awards radar. Maybe the trailer is doing The Big Short too much justice because it looks like great.
Watch the trailer and read the official synopsis below and tell us what you think. The Big Short is in UK cinemas from December 23rd 2015 (limited screenings from December 11th).
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 true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam Mckay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
