Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a Wall Street guru who picks hot stocks as host of the television show "Money Monster." Suddenly, during a live broadcast, disgruntled investor Kyle Budwell storms onto the set and takes Gates hostage. He tells Lee that he lost everything on one of his tips. As Gates tries to plead with Kyle, he's also using an earpiece to communicate with his longtime producer (Julia Roberts) in the control room. Together, they must figure out a way to defuse the situation and disarm the angry young man.
These are two of the biggest names in film history.
And they obviously have great chemistry.
Throw in the fact that Jodie Foster is directing and you've basically got an all-star team.
Money Monster looks like a thriller in the style of Inside Man (which starred Foster):
Slick looking, with twists and turns all but guaranteed.
I'm hoping that the script can live up to the talent on screen and behind the camera.
A supernatural force terrorizes a couple (Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell) and their two children after they return home from a vacation to the Grand Canyon.
With a synopsis that short, the tagline should be:
"This is a scary movie starring Kevin Bacon."
Here's the trailer.
And here's a quick list of Bacon's Top 5 Performances:
4. Apollo 13
