From the producers of the Oscar Best Picture winner “Argo” comes Columbia Pictures’ new suspense thriller “Money Monster.” Directed by Jodie Foster, the film stars George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Jack O’Connell (“300: Rise of an Empire,” “Unbroken”).
In the taut and tense thriller “Money Monster,” Lee Gates (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 (O’Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (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.
The film also stars Dominic West, Giancarlo Esposito and Caitriona Balfe, while the producers are Daniel Dubiecki, Lara Alameddine, George Clooney and Grant Heslov.
Opening across the Philippines in April 2016, “Money Monster” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
