Ridley Scott’s first offering of 2017, the divisive Alien: Covenant, isn’t exactly the sort of film that might generate buzz during awards season. But his upcoming retelling of the John Paul Getty III kidnapping, All the Money in the World, could definitely wind up in some of those conversations. The film, starring Kevin Spacey as infamous oil tycoon J. Paul Getty and Michelle Williams as his harried daughter-in-law, just released its first trailer, which you can check out here.
This looks suitably intense, and it’s especially impressive considering that production on the film just began earlier this year. Look for Paramount Pictures to mount a major awards push for this one, and if Spacey’s performance is as great as we’re hearing, he could easily become a frontrunner for a Best Actor nod.
All the Money in the World is scheduled to open on December 8.
ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Kevin Spacey) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
