MONEY MONSTER

Thriller

In the real-time, high stakes thriller Money Monster, George Clooney and Julia Roberts star as financial TV host Lee Gates and his producer Patty, who are put in an extreme situation when an irate investor who has lost everything (Jack O’Connell) forcefully takes over their studio. During a tense standoff broadcast to millions on live TV, Lee and Patty must work furiously against the clock to unravel the mystery behind a conspiracy at the heart of today’s fast-paced, high-tech global markets.

I love this movie because it has two things that sometimes people think are opposites,” says Jodie Foster, who directs the thriller Money Monster, starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts. “One is that it’s a mainstream thriller that’s exciting, fast-paced, smart, and yet, still has a real accessibility. The flip side, which is the most important reason to go to the movies, is that you’re moved by a real story. It’s incredibly relevant.”

To me, the most exciting part of the story, in addition to the cops, helicopters, guns, bombs, and fast-paced excitement,” Foster continues, “is how this man, Lee Gates, played by George Clooney, starts off one way – a shallow, smug, empty guy, who’s successful at his work but a failure in everyone’s eyes, including his own – but has a terrible moment that forces him, with Julia’s help, to rise to the occasion, find his humanity, grow up, evolve, and change.”

The world of money has gotten out of control. When things go wrong, you don’t actually understand what it is that went wrong – and the regular guy gets screwed,” says George Clooney, who stars as the host of a financial news program who comes face-to-face with one of those regular guys who’s determined to hold someone accountable, by any means necessary.

 

Money Monster has been rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for Language Throughout, Some Sexuality and Brief Violence. The film will be released in theaters nationwide in May 13, 2016.
