Here’s the trailer for the housing market crash movie The Big Short, directed by Adam Mckay, (Step Brothers, Anchorman) and stars a raft of talent including Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
The film is based upon the true story and best selling book, of the same name, by author Michael Lewis and tells the story of four outsiders who saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy. Their next move was then to bet against the banks after which the dark underbelly of the financial industry was fully exposed.
The Big Short is due for release this Christmas.

Who is Nicolas Winding Refn? Well anyone familiar with the Pusher Trilogy, three films about the criminal underworld in Denmark, which in our humble opinion is actually better than the Godfather trilogy, (oh yes we did, deal with it), knows that Refn is a film director of enormous talent.
One of his strengths is knowing when to ratchet up the tension in a realistic and grounded fashion which makes the movie and performances all the more convincing. The clip above for his latest venture Drive starring Ryan Gosling about a Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver, demonstrates just that.
If your still not sold on this movie know that Bryan Cranston, he of Malcolm In The Middle and Breaking Bad fame also stars.
