The director of Anchorman is making a movie about the 2008 financial crisis

It's out December 11th

Adam McKay, the director behind Will Ferrell fan fodder like Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers, is helming a movie about the housing crisis and economic crash of the 2000s. Its first trailer dropped today, and it looks pretty good! There are a lot of men in suits! Everyone has weird hair.

The movie is based on a book of the same name by Michael Lewis. It stars Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Karen Gillan, Marisa Tomei, and Steve Carell, who has, perhaps, the weirdest hair of all. It's out December 11th.
