TriStar Pictures has unveiled a new trailer and poster for the dramatic film, All the Money in the World, directed by Ridley Scott. David Scarpa adapted John Pearson’s book for the screen, and Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, Quentin Curtis, Chris Clark, Ridley Scott, Mark Huffam, and director Scott produced. TriStar will open the film in limited release on December 8, 2017.
The studio’s official description of the plot makes a point of pointing out the film is inspired by historical events and that “some scenes, characters and dialogue have been fictionalized for dramatic purposes.” The true story that inspired All the Money in the World was the kidnapping of Getty heir, John Paul Getty III, in 1973. Charlie Plummer plays the kidnapped heir and Kevin Spacey takes on the role of billionaire John Paul Getty. The cast also includes Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg, Romain Duris, and Timothy Hutton.
The Plot: All the Money in the World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Spacey) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
