A new trailer has been released for the upcoming financial thriller The Dumb Money, starring Paul Dano, Regina Hall, and Keegan-Michael Key. The film follows a group of outsiders who decide to game the stock market by exploiting a loophole in the system.
The trailer opens with Dano’s character, a hedge fund manager, explaining how he and his team have found a way to make money by betting on the stock market going down. They do this by shorting stocks, which means essentially betting that the price of a stock will go down.
The team’s plan seems to be working well at first, but they soon find themselves in over their heads when the stock market starts to crash. The trailer shows the team scrambling to cover their losses as the market spirals out of control.
The Dumb Money is directed by Ben Younger, who previously directed the films Boiler Room and The Wolf of Wall Street. The film also stars Regina Hall, Keegan-Michael Key, Anthony Edwards, and Judd Hirsch.
The Dumb Money is scheduled to be released in theaters on September 22, 2023.
