To say The Big Short has a star-studded cast is an understatement. The film, which tells the story of a group of savvy number crunchers who predicted the Big Recession of the mid-2000s (and invested accordingly) stars Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carell, with Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) directing. If those weren't enough A-list names, The Big Short is a big-screen adaptation of a book by Michael Lewis, who also wrote Moneyball and The Blind Side. The film opens in limited release on December 11 before going wide on December 23. Watch the trailer below.
