Coming Soon: All The Money In the World

In History, Movies & TV by ashbydodd

All The Money in the World stars Kevin Spacey Christopher Plummer as J. Paul Getty, a man who refused to pay his grandson’s kidnapping ransom.

All The Money in the World was almost complete and ready to release when news about Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct spread. The movie, based on the book, Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty, became footnote in the overall scandal. Around the time Spacey was fired from Netflix, All The Money in the World was in release-limbo. Enter Christopher Plummer.

There is no doubt that Spacey’s performance would have been perfect in the role but after the allegations against him, movie-goers would be too distracted by his real-life escapades to enjoy whatever talent he might show on the big screen. Christopher Plummer’s last minute addition allowed the movie to move forward and his performance as the heartless billionaire J. Paul Getty is receiving rave reviews. (It’s rumored that Plummer was director Ridley Scott’s original choice for the role.)

The film follows the true story of John Paul Getty III’s kidnapping in 1973 and the notorious decision by his grandfather, J. Paul Getty, to not pay the ransom (despite his status as one of the wealthiest men in the world). As the situation escalated, it became increasingly clear just how cold and unfeeling J. Paul Getty really was.

From the trailer alone, the film looks compelling and despite my inability to fangirl over Mark Wahlberg, he and the rest of the cast looks to be on point. Watch Christopher Plummer, Michelle Williams, Wahlberg and Romain Duris in the captivating movie trailer below:
