After the success of Moneyball, another adaptation of Michael Lewis’ is all set to perhaps win itself an Oscar nomination. This year its an adaptation of ‘The Big Short’ which definitely seems like a fall movie you wouldn’t want to miss, even if you eventually hate it.

The film is about the 20s economic meltdown in America, and show four investment bankers predict the crash and “betting on the American economy”. If you watch the trailer you’ll find that you can expect some big ideas and a good amount of comic relief with lines such as – “If you tell me the difference between stupidity and illegal, I’ll have my wife’s brother arrested.”

The trailer most obviously, shows off their star cast – Brad Pitt, Steve Carell, Mr.Batman – Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling in a stereotypical looking investment banker avatar. The film is being directed by Adam McKay and will be closing the AFI festival on November 12th, 2015.

This is perhaps the first time we’ll be the watching a story about people who reaped the benefits of that economic crash that shattered the rest of the country. It’s a new angle with hopefully stellar performances.

The Big Short is slated for a limited release on the 11th of December, 2015 and a worldwide release on the 23rd of December, 2015. Meanwhile, if you’re bored, go catch Black Mass and The Intern and let us know whether they’re overrated or not.
