Trailer Alert – Money Monster

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. – IMDB

This movie had me at ‘Clooney’, but the trailer actually looks pretty good. In a way I’m all set with another ‘the government is horrible and ruins everything’ movie, but since the government is horrible and continues to ruin everything, I guess I’ll have to get used to movies like this. I’d also be lying if I said I wasn’t all in on Clooney being a ‘bombastic TV personality’ who uncovers a bunch of lies and starts kicking ass. Throw in trailer cameos from Gustavo Fring and Jimmy McNulty and you’ve got the rarely used Average Nobodies Seal of Approval:
