Just over two years after the GameStop stock mania, we’re being gifted with a star-stacked movie about the Reddit-spurred true story that was always bound for cinematic expansion.

Thursday, Sony rolled out the trailer for the aptly titled Dumb Money, directed by Craig Gillespie. The filmmaker’s catalog is a wide-ranging one and includes episodes of last year’s Pam & Tommy and Mike, the Margot Robbie-led I, Tonya, and the 2011 remake of Fright Night (as well as the video for Kid Cudi’s soundtrack cut “No One Believes Me”).

Leading the cast is Paul Dano as Keith Gill, a.k.a. DeepFuckingValue, a.k.a. Roaring Kitty. He’s joined here by a truly impressive roster of familiar faces including (but not limited to) Pete Davidson, America Ferrera, Sebastian Stan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Seth Rogen, Shailene Woodley, Myha'la Herrold, Nick Offerman, and Anthony Ramos.

See the new trailer up top. Among the more quotable utterances, though there are several, is Davidson’s delivery of, “You got rich dudes pissing in their pants right now.” In a perfect world, of course, rich dudes would exist in a state of perpetual pants-pissing.

Dumb Money hits theaters on Sept. 22.

The inspired-by-a-true-story dramedy follows Dano’s acclaimed turns in last year’s The Batman and The Fabelmans, both of which fared well in the ensuing Oscars nominations. For Davidson, Dumb Money arrives after the rollout of his semi-autobiographical Peacock series Bupkis and his voice role as Mirage in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

Ahead of the Bupkis premiere, Davidson spoke with me (thanks to mayonnaise) and revealed that he learned “how to make a Joe Pesci martini” from his beloved co-star. Read the full thing here.
