The latest national tragedy to get the Hollywood treatment? The 2008 financial crisis. Between the upcoming film Margin Call and the recently announced George Clooney production about the TARP bailouts, Hollywood is getting its—wait for it—money's worth. (Groan!) Not to be outdone by their big studio brethren, HBO put together Too Big to Fail, an adaptation of Andrew Ross Sorkin's book from director Curtis Hanson.
Starring William Hurt, Billy Crudup, Paul Giamatti and Cynthia Nixon, the telefilm premieres in May, and the first trailer looks pretty awesome. Albeit under the briefest definition of the word (it's 39 seconds after all). Check it out below.
