So you may remember the story a couple of years ago where the games shop GameStop was saved by a fan of the store taking down hedge fund managers along the way. Well now they have made the film of the story and it stars the always great Paul Dano and we get a fist glimpse with the Dumb Money trailer
Dumb Money is the story of fortunes won and lost overnight in the David vs. Goliath GameStop short squeeze that changed Wall Street forever.
Dumb Money is based on the insane true story of the YouTuber who brought Wall Street to its knees and got rich by turning the video-game retailer GameStop into the world’s hottest company. In the middle of everything is regular guy Keith Gill (Paul Dano), who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich – until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down.
Dumb Money also stars Pete Davidson, Vincent D’Onofrio, America Ferrera, Nick Offerman, Anthony Ramos, Sebastian Stan, Shailene Woodley and Seth Rogen. Directed by Craig Gillespie, the screenplay is written by Lauren Schuker Blum & Rebecca Angelo, based on the book “The Antisocial Network” by Ben Mezrich.
DUMB MONEY WILL BE RELEASED IN CINEMAS ON 22nd SEPTEMBER 2023
