The official trailer for TriStar Pictures’ thriller Money Monster arrives with plenty of George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Jack O’Connell. In fact, there might be a little too much of each as the new trailer lays out more of the plot than is really necessary and should come with its own spoiler alert warning. Directed by Jodie Foster, the cast also includes Outlander‘s Caitriona Balfe, Dominic West, and Giancarlo Esposito. TriStar’s aiming for a May theatrical release.
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.
