Paramount Pictures has a surprise fall gift for us: The Big Short! Check out the first trailer for BIG SHORT below. According to Deadline, however, that all changed when the studio saw and were impressed by McKay’s near-complete cut of the film. When no one, including the big banks, media, and government, refused to see it, these gentlemen had the idea to bet against them.
In a sign of goodwill for the film, the American Film Institute (AFI) has announced that “The Big Short” will be the Closing Night Gala at the 2015 AFI Film Festival on Thursday, November 12. It’ll then jump into the crowded year-end fray with a limited release starting December 11 and a nationwide rollout starting December 23. But production flew along and Paramount is so happy with the final product that they’re releasing it this Christmas, nearly a year ahead of when most of us thought it would be released. According to the official description, “their bold investment [the plan itself is called “The Big Short”] leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything”.
Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, & Christian Bale show star within the 1st trailer for the Adam McKay-directed film The Big Short.
